A few hundred years ago we brought Africans over as slaves. America gets bashed for its history of slave owning, but slavery had been around for thousands of years before we existed—and still exists today in other parts of the world.
Slavery was supposed to be abolished in the 1800s, but it turns out it really wasn’t.
We have a modern day form of slavery in America. This underclass, abused group of individuals are known as The Employed. They are the new slaves. Like the slaves of old who kept the plantations running, these modern slaves are responsible for keeping our whole nation going. They are the ones who keep the wheels of society turning. They have get up early every morning, get dressed, and go to work every day—most likely at a job they hate—to keep the infrastructure going and support all the others who don’t work.
The Employed have their hard-earned money forcefully taken from them against their will before they even see it. Oh, sure, The Employed are allowed to keep a portion of their money by the government—but for some of their work day—they are working for free. Added up over the course of a lifetime of working, and it’s years an employed person works for free to support others. Non-voluntary labor for free is the definition of slavery.
The Employed aren’t asked if they want their money handed to people who have multiple children they can’t afford or asked if they wish to pay for the education, housing, food, EBT cards, social services, Obama phones and medical care for all the free-loaders. No, The Employed have no choice. They are forced to hand over their money to support everyone else in the country—and even have their money go to foreigners living in other countries.
Our government makes The Employed not only support their fellow countrymen, but also illegal immigrants. We basically have open borders—as if America belongs to the rest of the world and everyone has a God given right to come here. No one can be banned.
“We can’t keep them out! They’re just a better life!” the liberals whine. Or, “We’re all immigrants!”
No, I’m not an immigrant. I don’t descend from immigrants. My ancestors founded America. They endured hardships, risked their lives, often gave their lives, sacrificed and fought to make this county the greatest country on earth. I find it insulting to suggest I’m on a par with some foreigner who scurries across the border in labor so she can push out an anchor baby and collect welfare. This foreigner, who can’t speak a word of English and has no love for or allegiance to this country, has the right to be here? It’s absurd.
Obama wanted to bring in thousands of Muslim refugees because…….The Statue of Liberty. He said we needed to bring in these refugees because it’s our values and “who we are”.
Ah, wrong. The State of Liberty doesn’t say:
“Give me your ignorant, your angry, your filthy masses yearning to take advantage of the American taxpayer. Send these, the homeless, the tempest tossed, who will never assimilate because their cultural and religious values are so different from ours.”
It isn’t even an issue of whether terrorists could sneak in with the refugees (although that is a concern). Currently in America, we have more people on welfare then are employed. The Non-Working class is overwhelming The Employed. This is not a sustainable system, yet our government appears to be oblivious and our leaders are having a raging debate about whether to bring in hundreds of thousands of refugees*. There shouldn’t be a debate. We are plenty populated now. We don’t have any more uncharted land in need discovery by a Lewis and Clark.
Aside from all other reasons we don’t need more foreigners here:
America is broke.
We can’t support millions of foreigners.
When you’re broke you don’t invite a bunch of unemployable, poor people to come live in your house.
*An HHS study of refugees showed that 91% of them were still on welfare five years after coming to America. But of course they are. They can’t speak, read or write English. They have no skills or education. They aren’t even Taco Bell material.
