CARAVAN heading to The U.S.A ( POLL )


#631

Why not discuss facts instead of feeling? This country at one time limited immigration. We also were not a welfare nation. Why is it that liberals, progressives, socialist, progressive catholics, democratic socalist, never mind lets just place them in a basket I like to call “statist”, are so unwilling to discuss facts? Lets allow these people to enter the USA but they may not vote for 18 years and they may not recieve any governmental benefits for 12 years. Their children may not become citizens for 18 years also.


#632

If by “selective” you mean extremely racist.


#633

So they’re all criminals and gang members?


#634

At one time immigration was controlled by percentages. Why are you calling someone post racist? how about using some facts to back up your claim? I can, can you?


#635

I didn’t call his post racist. I said the immigration policies of yore were racist.

But since you’re so big on facts, I’m sure you already knew that.


#636

Potato potatoh.


#637

The percentages were based on racial policies. She’s not wrong.


#638

Not to the Chinese.

#639

so youre calling his belief racist?

AGAIN in the past this country has limited immigration. It applied those limits based upon percentage of people that already lived here.

I have to be careful what I write. I can be suspended for the slightest of issues that people can take as offensive.

Bet after this one I am suspended for two weeks because I use facts instead of feelings.


#640

I never said “all.”


#641

USE UR FAX BRAH


#642

Oh good. So we’re cool with letting the non-gang banger majority in?


#643

Now youre just rude. But that is expected when a statist loses an argument.


#644

UR NOT USIN UR FAX!

Also, I’m not trying to win any arguments. When people have already decided that their fellow children of God are unworthy of assistance, there can be no winning.


#645

No it wasn’t racist. It was done in order to allow those in to integrate with the American culture. I want the American culture to survive and prosper. That isnt racist.


#646

Hold on, I never even said I supported the policy. I just stated a fact.


#647

“American culture” is constantly in flux. You can’t “protect” it or prevent it from changing.


#648

No they were very much racially motivated. We allowed in mostly Europeans, and only small numbers of others, mostly for use as cheap labor in sparsely populated areas for infrastructure projects. I.e. the transcontinental railroad in the case of the Chinese.


#649

Go to japan and say that. go to china and say that.


#650

The percentages were in place from 1920 in 1965. The TCR was completed in 1870 please use another symbolic talking point to misrepresent as a fact.
