“Oh, I forget. You staunch Tea Party conservatives believe the ideas of Thomas Hobbes will make America a better country, in that a dictator with absolute power is necessary because humans cannot control themselves, and would destroy themselves in a democracy.
Of course, you ignore the failures of governments where that actually was the case...”
“we should tax 65% across the board and we all can stay at home get all for free”

“You could tax much less than that and provide everyone free health care.
The average cost of a family plan in the US is $16,400. (That number comes from Paul Ryan himself). If someone makes $50,000 a year, that's the equivalent of a 32% tax on every penny of their gross income.
Add that to their 15.4% FICA tax and their 15% federal tax, and that's like a tax rate of 62.4%, not counting state and local taxes.
Countries with universal health care don't tax even their wealthy that much. But because Americans have been brainwashed since Reagan to think taxes are evil, they'd now rather pay enormous sums of money out of pocket or have it deducted from their wages than to pay a much smaller tax and have free health care for life.”
“so thats why you want them here to be your slaves? and work for no to little money..

“Never said that "I want them here". Your words not mine. Just said that if they want to be here to do a job that no American wants , then they should be allowed to be here and should be free of the hate that people sling around so easily. Slavery huh? Nice touch. Can't figure out a way to slip the name Hitler in there?”
“You seem to have this silly idea that everyone in Mexico is dying to invade US. They come to US because they can make more money there. Then they usually go back to where they prefer to live.....Mexico. And without their willingness to work in the hot sun for less than minimum wages you'd be paying $5.00 for an orange because no spoiled American will work for those wages. Two years ago when Romney and the "R"s were pushing so hard for "self deportation" a lot of migrants got scared and fled. These are people that have permission to be here to pick crops, but all the hateful chatter scared them into thinking that they needed to leave. The result was that thousands of acres of crops in Georgia rotted in the fields because no American would do the work.”
“i wouldn't want to live in mexico my self i can under stand why they want to come here... to bad there not willing to fight for there country..”

“Actually....I live in Mexico six months out of the year. I'm not saying that Mexico does not have problems.....but the people of Mexico are not dying to go to the US. Frankly they ask me all the time how people in the US can put up with all the nonsense. What do you mean, "to bad there (they're) not willing to fight for there (their) country"? Total nonsense.”
“would if they could... i bet Poland did not think Germany way going to invade them also.... and i bet Ukraine did not think that also.... you mistaking them for how we see the world not for how they see it... take off the rose colored sun glasses life out side the US is way different then in..”

“Crimean Ukraine knew for a fact they could be invaded. That's been a contested region for hundreds if not thousands of years.”
