Immigration and Taxation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Illegal immigrant is kind of a stupid term. lol An immigrant is an immigrant. Some travel with permission, some do not. That said, a simple term was needed in order to simplify the discussion. Especially since so many people can’t think in terms/relationships of complex and dynamic challenges.

The media and government had to dumb the conversation down so that the majority of modestly educated middle Americans could follow along and be fooled into following one or the other spoon fed ideologies.  Let’s face it.  Make the paragraph too long and most Americans tune out.

Technically speaking, I’ve been in a number of countries illegally. I never intended to stay, though.

The majority of persons who have illegally crossed the borders into America are here to take on jobs that are low paying, menial positions that many Americans will not, for a variety of reasons, take on.

If you deport (kick out) all of these “illegals,” you have one of two choices:

1. Find Americans to work these menial tasks/jobs for low wages. (PROBABLY NOT GOING TO HAPPEN).

2. Raise the wage base so that Americans will actually take these positions.

That will likely cause a huge rise in prices for many  of these products and services.

Food prices will skyrocket. Prices for nearly everything will be hiked as many of your janitor/custodial workers and low wage folks in restaurants and the like are illegals. Prices for roofing and like services will likewise skyrocket. Any labor oriented service will raise in pricing.

Are you ready to pay the price for getting rid of all of these “wretched” America invading illegal migrants workers.

The criminals who come to America mixed in with average migrating families are an extremely low percentage of illegal immigrant population. I realize that Right leaning groups of the GOP have used that wedge issue in their fear mongering vote grabbing schemes.  Criminals would continue to spirit themselves into America regardless of the ebb and flow of immigration into America.

With these things in mind, are you, middle American, prepared to pay higher prices for good and services in order to “solve” the immigration question?

This is only one area affected by immigration. There is also the fact that immigrants whether legally or illegally introduced to the United States all pay tax. If they purchase goods in America, they pay a tax.

This is one reason why we should go away from the antiquated and punitive Income Tax system and gear our taxation towards consumption. A National Sales tax would be fair to all and it would tax millions of tourists as well as all immigrants regardless of their status.  Aside from this, taxing consumption encourages saving and would in all likelihood discourage binge-credit spending.  That may be why big business is against a National Sales Tax.

There are many outright lies generated by both the left and the right concerning immigration (illegal or otherwise) AND taxation in the United States. Find your way to the truth. Stop following the party line. Listen to your inner voice. The one that is human. Ignore the voice that tells you what a Republican or Democrat should feel about these complex topics.

Seek the truth, though, it is  a difficult path to tread.

ROOT CAUSES: Illegal Immigration

Illegal immigrants are everywhere these days.  Kentucky, New Jersey, Maine, Michigan, Idaho, North Dakota.  Americans are fed up.  They ask why they must pay the tax bill for illegal immigrant welfare.

It’s the cost of cheap labor. If Americans are going to allow South and Central Americans and Mexicans to migrate North so that American Business can get labor so cheap that China looks magnanimous by comparison, then this is the price America must pay.

It’s the same as it ever was. Business passing off expenses to the consumer.

Big (and small) Business gets CHEAP LABOR. The government takes up the slack. The tax payer pays for the Federal Government to take up that slack.

What’s new about this?

America did it with the Japanese, Chinese, Irish, Germans, Italians and others. Now America is doing it with Mexicans and the other Southern fellows.  I didn’t mention the Africans because that was different. Slavery was not written off and passed to the customer. There is no comparison between what happened to the Slaves and what occurred with other immigrant groups or the current batch. Slavery was simply evil incarnate.  Romans treated their slaves better than the American Southern Gentleman treated his.

Cheap labor.  It’s wonderful.  You want inexpensive products. Well, this is how you get it in America.  Illegal Immigration.  The only reason that Americans are complaining about illegal immigration is because it’s in their faces.  DAILY!  If it weren’t such an obvious phenomenon, the issue would not hold the collectively and infamously short attention span of the American political consciousness.

Cheap labor makes products that come from all over the world. China, Cambodia, Burma, etc,.  Not too many Americans give this a second thought as they purchase their Under Armour Shoes and Shirts.  Not many Americans spare a thought about these places because they aren’t walking by American front porches or soaking up American tax dollars.

This is the cost of Capitalism and Low Prices. Starvation wages, sweat houses, people living in squalor. All so Americans can buy cheaper iPods, Oranges, Bananas and Nikes. In the end, the devil takes his due.

GO CAPITALISM!

I’m all for it.

The last pic begs the question.  Why do people have children when they know that they can’t take care of them?
