    They come From every country, all over the world, people risk their lives, use all their savings, sneak over our borders in the middle of the night.

    And they don't leave. They don't go back to their country. They stay here.

    They come here because we are the greatest country in the world.

    They stay because we are the greatest country in the world.

    So why does our President berate us at every opportunity?


    Food for thought.

    People migrate to richer countries because even low paying jobs in those countries are better than mid-level jobs in their own countries, or the economies of their own countries are too undeveloped relative to population to be able to absorb the workforce and hence there's no jobs or only informal sector or substinence jobs. This is in not in any way, shape, or form limited to the United States. Many Africans and Middle Eastereners migrate to Europe for better (or any) jobs, and many South and Southeast Asians migrate to the microstates of the Middle East because of their low population, high wealth, and large necessity for low-skilled labor. This is not even limited to really wealthy countries or petrostates: In Costa Rica (pop: 4,500,000) we have some 500,000 legal and illegal Nicaraguans working a wide variety of different low-skill jobs because Nicaragua, despite being right next door to Costa Rica, is many times poorer. It doesn't make us "better" than Nicaraguans or anybody else though. The US has many immigrants from all over because it is the largest of all the rich countries.

    If this indicator were to be the determinant for what country is the "best" (since many of you Americans are always so concerned that everyone realize you are the best), then by that same token Canada is the greatest country in the World, because they have a higher net migration rate than the US. Well, Canada, and the UEA, and Singapore, among other small city-states. Does this mean these countries are better than the US? No, not really.

    Excellent post, Delta!! Couldn't have said it better myself!!

    Just a small addendum:

    One of the ways the American society uses to strengthen, to reinforce nationalism among its citizens is to create a grotesque caricature of the rest of the world as being a vast, untamed wilderness immersed in an eternal Dark Age in contrast to an island of civilization and prosperity represented by America.

    People who try to compare the American standard of living with the rest of the world in a calm, impartial, fair and dispassionate manner are really missing the point and wasting their time here because this nationalist indoctrination the American people is subjected to is based on emotions not on reason, on facts.

    WHAT? I was brought up in the 60s when it was popular to feel sorry for every race EXCEPT white people because "everyone kept a few slaves in their basement". Only a few of my high school teachers actually spoke the truth. That far more whites in the US were poor than all minorities combined. Today, whites are still the majority when it comes to poverty though the Mexican Propaganda Department will call you a racist for allowing those facts into schools.

    Also, Mexico is rated 50-55 out of 179 countries in the last 20 years or more for standard of living in the world by the United Nations. The United States has fallen year after year in those rating because of the immigration invasion that is destroying the US economy.

    And the brainwashed Latino is the one who always brings up the "You stole our land" BS. When you point out that Latinos destroy Latin America by overpopulation, they draw the racist gun again instead of looking at it rationally. They think that the Magic Mexicans will fix everything when it can be pointed out that everything they have touched in the US has been corrupted. Good neighborhoods turned into ghettos. The economy has tanked because of all the freebees this "endangered species" thinks it deserves having done nothing to earn it.

    White people have created a standard of living that people of color could not have even dreamed of.

    Thats why.

    No matter how bad everyone says America is, it always amazes me that the come here in droves!

    America is HORRIABLE, and yet they come
    America is full of racists, and yet they come
    Americans hate the world, and yet they come
    All of the worlds problems are Americans fault, and yet they come.

    Now matter how bad WE are America sure must be better then where ever it is that all of the legal and illegals came from. And the come from EVERYWHERE!
