    Did politicians build entire foundations and campaign platforms on TAKING from others to fund our worse, our least productive, Mexico’s worse an least productive?
    Has the injection of tens of millions of thirdworld foreigners into American society changed and influenced the traditional American perspective on matters such as socialism? Isn’t traditional American perspective part of what built the greatest nation on earth? Are we sure we want that gone?

    No, back then America consisted of Americans. Americans love freedom over free shit, the defining characteristic.

    The looking the other way while millions of illegal aliens poured across our southern border was initially driven by the ruling elite and globalists, they wanted the cheap labor while touting diversity.

    Then the democrats figured out that hey, they had a permanent underclass in illegal aliens, and all they had to do was demonize anyone that advocated for enforcing our laws and securing the border as racists and bigots, and they could get all those illegal alien VOTES.

    Yes, this certainly has effected America, for the worse.

    Back then there was a thing called assimilation and immigrants worked hard to conform to the American culture and government. Now there's more a sense of entitlement than responsibility. Arrogant, uncivilized and uneducated immigrants today think that we should adapt to them and their backward ways instead of the other way around. That's what makes so many of todays immigrants undesirable.

    There have always been Ultraliberal extremists out there in America, and sometimes quite a few. Eugene V. Debs got as much as 6% of the Popular vote as a admitted socialist in 1912.

    The difference is that Debs knew he was a piece of trash. Modern extremists actually condemn people with normative views.

    Yup, there's nothing at all socialistic about 90% tax brackets.

    You know, back in the '50s when America was American and foreigners and negroes knew their place.
