Liberals challenged to provide example of successful socialism

To The Daily Sun,

First today I have to complement Tony Boutin for another letter to the editor where he hits the nail right on the head. This Marxist-socialist nonsense that Obama and liberals worship like a false idol is the most self-destructive form of government ever conceived, in my opinion. Over and over I have challenged liberals to provide an example of a successful socialist country that was or is not dependent on someone else, and they are unable to do so. Still they parrot the socialist line like it was gospel.

Second, today I read on the front page where a criminal felon took a couple shots through a screen door of a house. The story indicates he was probably high on methamphetamine. Guess this is another example of what liberals call a victimless crime, but only because Mrs. Joslin wasn't hit by a bullet. Get this straight, criminals are criminals and felons are felons for a reason. They are dangers to other people, predators who cannot and will not respect the rights and lives of others. But still liberals lead by our un-American president sees fit to release thousands from prisons for one reason, because they are black. I guarantee if they were all white he wouldn't give a fig.

Third, another shout-out to L. Michael Hatch. Another gentleman with 20-20 vision concerning the Clintons. Even now after two, not one but two inspector generals found security breaches in Hillary's e-mails which she failed to turn over to State when she left, but said she did, can we expect the FBI and Justice to investigate? Don't hold your breath folks both departments have been politically compromised and the liberal media will sweep this away as undeserving of their attention, wait and see.

Will the people rise up and shout their outrage? Nope, too busy with more important things. And by such things do great nations fall.

Illegal immigration is one reason the rich are getting richer

To The Daily Sun,

Kathryn Steinle shouldn't be dead. Joshua Wilkerson, Mirta Rivera, Casey Chadwick, Rodney Johnson, Javier Vega Jr., Jamiel Shaw Jr., and over 25,000 more Americans shouldn't be dead either. They were all killed by illegal aliens who shouldn't have been here.

Those Americans died and millions of others were raped, robbed, battered, kidnapped, impoverished, or otherwise victimized because greedy Washington Democrat and Republican politicians and special interest groups care more about their own power and wealth than the well-being of the American people.

Illegal immigration beneficiaries repeatedly lie about its benefits for our country, e.g., doing jobs Americans won't do, law-abiding, tax-paying, etc.

American workers do all jobs: waiters, housekeeping, crop picking, garbage collecting, ditch digging, construction, cleaning out septic tanks, etc. The vast majority of workers in all but a very few job categories are American citizens. More Americans would be working and self-supporting if immigrants didn't take jobs and drive down wages.

Despite false claims to the contrary, illegal aliens commit crimes at a higher rate than American citizens. For example, citing FBI data to try to counter Donald Trump, Rupert Murdock claimed that there are 2 million jailed Americans compared to "only" 267,000 illegal aliens. A 2011 GAO report claims there are 249,000 jailed illegal aliens. (To support the politicians, states and the federal government hide illegal alien crime statistics.) Whichever is correct, since there are about 30 times as many Americans as illegal aliens, the illegal alien crime rate is two to three times the rate of American citizens.

Frankly, the illegal alien crime rate is irrelevant. We shouldn't tolerate any extra murders, rapes, robberies, muggings, kidnappings, etc.

Politicians say illegal aliens can't get welfare, but that's a lie. Illegals are only (theoretically) restricted from getting federal means-tested welfare. Illegals get state, local and other federal benefits: Free medical treatment, free child education, and maybe housing, food stamps, etc. On average each illegal alien household annually receives about $15,000 in taxpayer-provided benefits more than they pay in taxes.

Illegal immigration is one of the reasons the rich are getting richer while the rest of us are getting poorer. The beneficiaries of illegal immigration live in protected environments and send their children to private schools. It's middle- and lower-income Americans who suffer from illegal immigration.

Presidential candidates, e.g., Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton, who want to reward illegal aliens by letting them stay here, ignore the harm illegals do to most Americans. Thus voters need to consider other candidates if they really want middle- and lower-income Americans to be safer, freer, and have more opportunities for better jobs, incomes, and lives.
