Someone posted this on their facebook wall... thought it was interesting, but haven't visited any of the links to verify the numbers.  But it wouldn't surprise me...  I really dislike the fact that my tax dollars go towards helping people who break the law, regardless of the actual dollar amount.



It's easy to dismiss individual programs that
benefit non-citizens until they're put together
and this picture emerges. Someone did a lot
of research to put together all of this data.
Often these programs are buried within other
programs making them difficult to find.

WHY is the USA BANKRUPT?

You think the war in Iraq was costing
us too much? Read this:

We have been hammered with the
propaganda that it was the Iraq war and
the war on terror that is bankrupting us.

I hope the following 14 reasons are
forwarded over and over again until
they are read so many times that the

included are the URL's for verification

Oh boy... where to start with this.

A) Illegal immigration is one of the most ridiculous "non issues" in society today. Who cares if Mr. Mexican arrives in the US? The only problem is if the government gives him stuff by taking it via taxation from someone else. But, this is a problem of welfare/socialism, not a problem of "illegal immigration."  You know who is far more expensive a burden than the immigrants?? The legal American citizens! That is where the outrage should be - that a bunch of fat lazy Americans get welfare paid by theft from other people, whilst complaining that "the illegals" have come into the country to work. End welfare for everyone and this problem goes away.


B) "$200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens."  <-- this is total bullshit and makes up the majority of the sum total at the bottom. The sentence should be changed to say, "$200 billion per year is saved by companies who are smart and moral enough to hire the most efficient labor inputs for their products and services." If an American cannot compete with a Mexican for the best labor at X price, then the Mexican should get the job! Simple as that. Illegal immigrants don't cost anyone anything, so long as they are not given welfare (and again, this is the problem of welfare in general, not as it pertains to illegals)

C) It is terrible and ironic that the US claims it is a "capitalist, free market country" while at the same time price fixing labor (minimum wage), and interfering with cross-border labor markets. Anyone who believes in free trade must believe in open immigration - for labor is a service. If it's wrong to stop apples from being traded to China, then it's wrong to stop Juan from coming to the US to pick those apples.

D) Complaining about remittances is utterly obnoxious and absurd. If a man earns $10, it's his $10 to do with as he pleases, including sending it to any other place he pleases. If $45 billion is sent in remittances, then good for those workers who earned $45 billion!

If America was a free country, a man could walk from Mexico into the US, start working, and be able to keep the profits of his labor. Unfortunately, America is a socialist empire with delusions of capitalism, and its citizens are so fat and noncompetitive that they must petition government to prevent harder working, more cost-effective Mexicans from arriving in the marketplace. Any problems with illegal immigrants is, upon reasonable inspection, actually a problem of welfare as a system, not of the free movement of labor (which a market economy demands).

I agree with you on all points evoorhees, well written!  I am completely against the welfare system we have in the states, as it only discourages responsibility and hard work.

I know someone who is on welfare... a single mom with 3 kids.  She was able to buy, on the taxpayer's dollars, a flatscreen TV, a laptop, a blu-ray player, etc, etc.  It upsets me when someone who does nothing but stay home with their kids all day can afford things more easily than my family can, when I'm working 50 hours a week and struggling to put food on the table for us all.

So I guess it's fairly predictable that the particular brand of anarchist libertarian on this forum wouldn't have thought through his philosophies enough to realize that eliminating redistributive policies would also completely eliminate the fictional "labor advantage" of people who have to travel a thousand miles in order to work...

It is kind of surprising though that evorhees at least can't intuitively make the connection between the FED's substantial inflation tax and wages lost to immigration.  Would you call the Federal Reserve "moral"?  Do you consider the petrodollar "moral"?  It seems rather odd to couch the exploitation of what is effectively modern-day tribute labor in terms of morality, especially when the armies that extract that tribute are financed via wealth-redistribution.  And you go so far as to label the corporate beneficiaries of this theft the "moral" ones?  I disagree.  This is a huge issue, and one that is intimately tied with the fundamental reason for Bitcoin's existence.  It's too bad that more of you don't recognize this.

Read it twice. Still don't know what your point is or even what you are saying. o_O

I'm pretty confident that evoorhees believes the FED to be immoral. Excuse me if I'm wrong.

As to the topic, it's asinine to blame immigration when we have sanctioned a monopoly institution with the moral right and obligation to initiate force and steal, then not realising that IT is the source of all our woes.

Hmmm yeah I read it three times and have no idea what he was saying. I think his thesis is this: "eliminating redistributive policies would also completely eliminate the fictional "labor advantage" of people who have to travel a thousand miles in order to work..."

What does it mean?? What is the fictional labor advantage?

And what's the comment regarding the "petro-dollar"?  That's just a term referring to revenue generated by oil-rich states. I have no problem with people selling oil (though it should be privatized, not state run)... lol not sure what to address exactly Smiley

I'm not smart enough to understand. But, wage controls should be gone, regardless of immigration issues. No man has the right to dictate what two other men agree via voluntary contract.

Why can't states have land/resources?  In fact I think that's what a state should have, and use those resources to provide materials, services and jobs for its people. This way you won't even need taxes to fund infrastructure etc which are wastly more efficient to do in centralized form. I'm not saying it should be 100% of the economy, perhaps 10-20% .

This is also where the die hard libertarians fall short. Something DID come before you, a long chain going back to the land/resources.
So who owned those in he begining? God? Native peoples ? and sold them for booze and fake pearls or taken at gunpoint..
The state should retain control/ownership over some but not all land/resources, and develop those using both public and private companies i competition.

What I think he means is that our current monetary system IS a huge redistribution system to benefit the rich. Especially the dollar. If the dollar wasn't used in world wide trade like oil etc, the US would not have been able to run super deficits year on year and print like there is no tomorrow during this financial crisis.

I can't believe the number of people who really believe this nonsense.

Trade account deficits are current account surpluses.

That $45 billion sent "out" of the country actually represents $45 billion of foreign investment in the USA.  It has to be exchanged to be sent out, so that means someone with a foreign currency values those dollars more than what they hold.  Why might that be?  Answer: because they can use those dollars to buy American-produced goods and invest in American companies.

I totally agree with you all.
In Panama we have the same situation where ilegal inmigrants work for much less than a citizen and send all their income back home and pay no taxes on it...
So they displace legal workers and the country has an outflow of cash.
Its awful, and recently the government relaxed the inmigration regulations once again. So more people will be coming this way and taking their money away...

This is the latest way to pass off debt to future generations:  print money, send it on a long trip around the world, and by the time it comes back you'll be dead and someone else will have to deal with the hyperinflation.

The question is, does it work when every country does it at the same time?  We're going to find out...

I love how a country founded by Illegal Aliens now ostracizes them so much. Hypocrisy seems to have no limits! We used germ warfare to start this great country!

If only the indigenous Indians had known how to build really high fences when the first ships sailed up?  Huh

The reason everything in your list is so expensive is because money is becoming worthless and has been designed to do so by the same kinds of idiots who would kill just for a piece of land. Maybe it's also one of the main reasons Bitcoin exists?

If it included the taxes paid by illegal immigrants and the money saved by companies who hire illegal immigrants, it would show a net positive. Immigration is what built this country. The desire of people to slam the door shut behind them sickens me.

Immigrants is what is saving the rotten occidental civilization nowadays.
Whether the legals or the illegals, they are the only ones who want to do the "hard and dirty" jobs.

Anit-Immigration is just an extension of the belief that lines on maps are somehow absolute and real and not just arbitrary and made up.
There are no countries just individuals making decisions about what's best for them and their families.
Patriotism is as ridiculous as belief in the flying spaghetti monster.
