And Good God! Can the average American actually tell you who the leader of Mexico is? I doubt it! When they come here it means there is a problem with the Government where they came from! And the solution to that does not equate to smaller Government in the United States either. But it does equate to smaller Government meaning less corrupt government and more efficient Government! We don't downsize Government because we can't get honest people in it! That is a sign that we have been doing the wrong type of weeding! We have been planting the seeds of weeds. Sounds like the start of a song doesn't it. In fact I am going to have to write one.
"Planting the seeds of weeds."
There it is. :)
One more point about Gun Control. One of the First times guns were used in the United States was against undue taxation; The Revolutionary War. It defines United States history! Jesus and his apostles didn't make a good tax collector tribe did he. When him and his apostles cut off that kids ear in the Bible did they do so because the family paid to pay a thug tax? The point being look how far taxation can go in the wrong direction; extortion, blackmailing and threat of bodily harm and personal injury.
One more point. Are not alcohol users a danger to themselves and others? Of course they are! They cause violence and kill people in drunk driving accidents but the alcohol user is never labeled mentally ill even though they are a great danger to themselves and others! I believe we need to turn on a dime on that issue!
You have never heard this, "The President of the United States sat down with the leader of Mexico to address repatriating illegal immigrants to Mexico and the sustainability of the Mexican Government as a form of meeting the needs of its people." We can topple but them but we just leave them in rubble. And why does it happen that way? Because people that never lived in freedom can't conceive of respecting the rights of each other and therefor forming Republics. A Republic being governed by the people. In other words a citizenship is oppressed, the United States trades with the country and topples that government. There is not viable leadership to form out of that cesspool. So the answer is to lead by example and state if you do not have a Constitution Equivalent we won't trade with you because your currency is not equivalent to our money and cannot be converted! That is how I would do it!
