AND

You agree that if any clause or component of this document is found to not be legally binding in a court of law of proper jurisdiction then the remainder of this document shall remain fully binding and in full force.

AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):

You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.
FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a “troll” by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldn’t be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.
A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg “It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill,” is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.
26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches
29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points – Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof
The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph.

  • The no B.S. solution to Illegal immigration.

    States are trying to pass various laws that could be said merely to augment federal law, and in a bizarre twist the feds are actually suing the states for doing so claiming that since Immigration is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Govt, then it is somehow illegal for states to get involved. Well, last time I checked, it was against federal law to rob a federally insured bank, or to commit kidnapping... so who is going to suggest that state and local police cannot get involved in those cases when they see it happening?


    Anyway, this proposal for dealing with illegals sidesteps this entire racial issue, since it does not approach the problem from the angle of enforcing immigration law at all. Further, it does not target illegal aliens in any manner, so every accusation of racism, or racial profiling, etc.. become irrelevant.

    The solution is a simple three step process...


    1st is easiest... simply cut off all public assistance. End all food stamps, welfare, etc.. to illegal aliens.


    2nd is to impose a severe fine upon any who employ an illegal alien, knowingly or unknowingly, no excuses accepted. A fine of say $10,000 per day, per illegal alien employed means if someone hires an illegal for a single day, that is a 10K fine... but if someone employs 10 for 10 days, that is a million dollar fine. That sort of penalty will even get Tyson's attention.


    The 3rd and final step is to publically offer half of any fine imposed will be rewarded to whoever makes the initial report that leads to that prosecution... even if the person who made the report were an illegal alien themselves. This will have several benefits. First, illegals themselves will be turned into defacto enforcement officers as they will be the ones who turn in their boss. Who would hire a single person for a day if at the end of that day that person could drop a dime on you and walk off with 5 grand? And in places where numerous illegals are employed, reports will come in fast as each illegal is wanting to assure HIS is the first report.


    While this will provide a short-term boon to a handful of illegals, the vast majority will benefit in no way, and will simply discover themselves unable to get a job doing anything. When they cannot find work, and receive zero public assistance, then deportation will prove unnecessary because feet work just as well facing south as facing north... and they will deport themselves. Even those who had short term gains by turning in employers will find that is the ONLY money they can make, and they too will have to leave eventually.


    This proposal will deal with the problem of illegal immigrants while not resulting in the arrest or deportation of a single illegal alien. Since setting employment regulations is well within a States authority, it cannot be argued that they are interfering in the operations of ICE in any way, nor overloading the system with tons of arrested aliens. And as already stated, all racial profiling questions become irrelevant. Further, the entire system can be implemented at virtually zero expense to the taxpayers, and can likely be supported thru fines that are imposed upon illegal employers.

    At this point it is unlikely that any wall is needed, and probably current Border Patrol resources could handle the tiny number of illegal crossers... smugglers, etc... who are left.

      Yeah, but I will let them argue that point with my legal-immigrant wife who is Filipino.

      And there is also the fact that my post makes no reference to race at all.. only to Illegal Aliens. To those who call THAT racist I simply ask... to what race am I supposedly racist against? If they are implying that opposing illegal aliens means I am anti-hispanic or something.. then it is THEY who are proving themselves to be racist by promoting a racist stereotype that illegal alien, and hispanic, are somehow synonymous.

        An excellent non-ideological, logical posting.

          Re: The no B.S. solution to Illegal immigration.

          That sounds like a good idea except for two possible problems;a. no illegal alien, by himself, gets welfare now. It's simply against the law. The only way an illegal picks up welfare is by including himself in a legitimate family, and the worker is supposed to check, but usually doesn't. There's no penalty for not and you risk complaints if you do.
          b. We'd probably have to put away a substantial percentage of our rich people, and then who would give us all jobs, as they are the only ones who hire people, according to most of this board. Then again, the fines might pay off the national debt, so I dunno :rolleyes:

            A substantial number of illegal aliens are Irish.

              This really would not be fair to our businessmen who would be denied the cheaper labor costs that illegals bring. No, to be fair about this, congress needs to do exactly what they did when our consumer goods manufacturing starting leaving in droves for communist china. Those corporations got tax breaks for shipping away american middle class jobs. It would only be fair to our small businesses to give them tax breaks too for hiring and working illegals. For each american you fire and hire an illegal, you get a 5000 dollar write on your tax return.

              Employers are very important to our economy, and you need to give them more freedom and liberty, because america is all about freedom and liberty. Now, for you twinkies out there who think this would hurt american workers, well fuck them lazy ass, no account bums who expect to feed their family on what they are paid. Entitiled sons of bitches is what they are! They have some nerve wanting a living wage when the illegal mexicans can make it on what they get paid. American can live 3 to 4 families per home. And by god they can live off of beans, salsa and tortilla chips too.

              Our american workers just got spoiled is all. Being paid lower middle class wages for unskilled labor in a consumer goods manufacturing plant was wrong from the get-go! And them damn unions that got those living wages for work were nothing more than communists! And america hates communists and we won't have a thing to do with 'em either. The day america helps out communists will be a cold day in hell....

              No sir, stopping illegals from working here, helping out our business greatly just will not fly!! Anyone who wants to stop our business from hiring them is a fucking racist!! And if you want to stop em, you apparently love these communist driven unions. You wanta kill what is left of the unions? Easy, give our businesses tax deductions for hiring illegals. Then ship american manufacturing jobs to a communist state, just to rub the american workers nose in comime feces. Communist china does not have unions that help those coolies get living wages, its just western unions that are the real communists. Chinese communism is good, american union communism is the worst sort of communism.


              I cannot believe you actually want to punish our businesses for breaking our federal laws!!! I think you are a lefty liberal who hates our businesses, because you are green with envy of these businessmen. Why don't you get off your lazy ass and become a businessman too? Then you can hire illegals, or move your business to communist china and max out your profits. That is what freedom and liberty is all about for god's sake!! What??? You say giving our businesses more freedom destroys our middle class, our working americans? Well sir, that is the price of freedom! Anyways, if these working americans want to make a living wage, let em open their own business, then they too can live in big houses and drive expensive cars. If they can't pull it off, that means they are inferiour humans, and do not deserve their next meal. With more freedom and liberty comes the chance that you will fail, but if you get lucky, you will be in high cotton. If not, well, you are not valuable enough to this society to warrant any help whatsoever. Only the strong, the smart, the lucky survive. And that is all that should survive. Anyways this would be good for america, and we could weed out the weaker, while teaching a lesson in morality. We need to get back to where it is every man for himself, and women and children NEVER go first...such silliness that comes from those tree hugging socialistic communist liberals. But what else can you expect from 'em? They actually believe that Christ said it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to make it into heaven! How absurd is that? The rich are rich because God loves the rich more, because they ain't lazy. God made 'em rich. And that shit about Christ saying the meek shall inherit the earth is a bullshit lie, told by a fucking liberal, in an occupied Israel a long time ago. And that tripe about Christ whip[ing the crap out of the money changers in the Temple was a lie too! Hell, he didn't whip em, he shook their hands and advised them to charge more for converting foreign currency into the right currency.

              Christ said we would always have the poor, and the reason we have so many poor is so other people can hire em for a few cents, and get rich as hell off of the work of these scumbags. And that is the final reason why we should not get bent out of shape for these illegals being hired by our businesses. God makes the poor folks so the motivated people can get rich off of 'em. This is God's plan and you better leave it the fuck alone! If God wanted to help the poor, he would come down and do it Himself! Since the world is filled with po folks, he apparently don't give a shit, and why should I? And if God did not want those illegals to come here to take american jobs, He would stop it Himself. And he ain't doing shit about it!

                  Why not just enforce existing laws rather than ignoring them and granting waivers.

                    Just one question. Who is ready to pay higher prices for all sorts of low labour currently done by illegal immigrants?
                    Secret laws, secret courts, secret rulings, secret prisons.
                    Rule of law?

                      Not enough of us is the answer. We still send our money willingly to communist china, and our corporations over there, even as we destroy our own prosperity in the process. We only change our minds when our own job is lost to illegals or communists. Typical self centered behavior that can always be depended upon! But that is where gov't has a role of stepping in to keep us from destroying the nation because of individual self centeredness. We have to be saved from ourselves, and we sure as hell won't do it, as we can save a buck or two. The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but ourselves....

                      Same goes for groups of humans called corporations, that effect the same self centeredness as the individual. There has to be an intelligent reasonable mind somewhere, guiding us so we do not fuck up our own nest, as we are apt to do when it comes to money. Our gov't helped us out until the past few decades when they decided for more freedom and liberty and turned us loose. Idiots should never be given the freedom to destroy ones nation, one's society. You gotta know where to draw the line. Absolute freedom does not exist, yet we have made an ideal of it. In chasing an ideal we destroy. A reality check is in order and fast!

                          Re: The no B.S. solution to Illegal immigration.

                          Back when most average americans did not have little portfolios, wall st was more careful with other people's money! Afterall, they were investing the money of the rich. Once they got millions middle class folks to invest, they went hog ass wild, and were no longer as careful with other people's money.

                          The only investments made by average folks were in war bonds, and they did it because it was their patriotic duty, as well as wanting to insure their sons and daughters had the good supplies to fight the Axis.

                          I think ALL americans being forced into working together during ww2 played a large role in the prosperity of Americans after ww2. I really do. We worked together for a greater good, a common goal, an economic goal. Then as time passed, as we tend to do, we drifted towards being more self interested. When these folks got into power, the days of working together was doomed. Now it's every man for himself, and fuck the guy next door. Women and children last, if they stand in your way. I think inwardly this defines this nation today, and the inward is of course the outward.

                          We are in all sorts of crisis. And I think it is rooted in the individualism pushed by the conservatives which is another word today for self involvement and to hell with others. A lone wolf consciousness believed in by the cons, and they propagandize this on their news outlets.

                          The only thing that will save us, our middle, our prosperity is a world war, that we win. That will give us a half century of working together, having a common goal, and then human nature will kick in again and the cycle begins anew. While this is pessimistic, I feel it is our reality. The con ideology of the lone wolf, will not win wars. It takes the democratic liberal idea of working together to accomplish something big and worthy. This is anathema to the cons, and their great flaw in governing, in ideology. We could only create history's largest middle class while we relegated them to the minority. I think this is a painful fact for them, so they ignore it. Sometimes belligerantly.

                            LOL.

                            Since I believe trickle down is a con game, and they know its a con game, the cons, I would do it differently.

                            I would force american corporations back to america, and use them to build up and substain our middle class again. A large middle class makes for a stronger nation than one with two classes. The larger the middle, the healthier, the stronger the nation. And we would still have the upper class, the rich folks, and we need them. They would only build homes that cost 10s of millions instead of hundreds of millions is all. But given human nature, if you allow a few to be much better off relative to the middle, the rich will settle for that. They won't like it of course because they have experienced the times of off shoring that made them vulgarly rich, yet they will continue to work to create their own wealth. The cons think if they cannot max out their profits by any means, they will simply stop creating wealth. That is delusional and does not take into account human nature and wealth. Like many of these con ideas, they dwell in delusions, and do not understand human nature. But why should they? Few took the liberal arts courses, the humanities in college. They limited their own education and opted for a one dimensional education.

                            Hell, once we forced back our corporations, we could open the doors to immigation to fill some of those manufacturing jobs! China has growed so much, they are running out of workers! But few with any brains want to immigrate to communist china, and that would not be the case here.

                            Trade is important, once you reach a certain point, but we have had times in the US when we were expanding infastructure and creating a larger middle class where trade was not as important. Trade in a modern industialized nation with a huge middle class has more importance in maintaining the peace, by trade. Not for any over riding economic reason. If one runs a perpetual trade deficet as we do, that trade is hurting rather than helping, america as a whole. When you run perpetual trade deficets, you can bet your ass that a select few are making a killing off of their exports, while the rest are suffering from the imports. So we run trade deficets because a few monied interests want to continue exporting for their own benefit, even if it hurts the nation.

                            You only win as a nation when you run surpluses in trade. Yet all nations cannot run trade surpluses!! That is why those nations tend to cheat on agreements and put into place non tarrif trade barriers to bring the trade deficets down and in line. And america had such a huge consumer market and middle class at one time that we allowed the cheating, because we were doing fine servicing our own consumer markets, and employing our own people.

                            The basic ways to be successful as an economy is not a complex thing. It is basic common sense. It is only complicated beyond understanding when there are special interests involved that are only wanting to advance their own self interests. Fuck the nation, as their own interest is more important than the nation, to them. This is where our gov't by and for the people used to step in. Cons call it marxism, socialism, communism, or perhaps they will invent a new ism for propaganga reasons. I call it planning, and taking into consideration the nation as a whole, instead of concentrating on giving the few what they want. Because what the few have wanted and got, has not been good for america. The gov't is not doing its job and the cons say the gov't should stay out of it. Well, the gov't got out of aiding the growth of the middle and now the middle is shrinking and the poor are growing. If this isn't insanity, what is?

                            I wish I could say the modern dems would help the middle again, the average guy, but I don't see it. I think they had to join in with the special interests in order to get enough money for elections so they could at least stay in DC, and keep their own positions of power and status. The cash cows are feeding both sides, and the middle suffers. That is the only logical reason the dems no longer represent the american worker, the middle class in maintaining their middle class jobs. The dems are no longer the ones that fight for average americans, or what FDR called common americans. The only thing I can see the dems doing is trying to provide the social safety nets to help out the very folks they sold out to big business and banksters, when they voted along with the pubs on important issues that effect the middle in bad ways. The Pubs don't give a shit about these average people, so they want to balance the budget by getting rid of many of the nets, and lowering the taxes on the very people who don't need lower taxes.

                            The only thing I can give the dems kudos on is that initially they voted against free trade, because they had enough common sense to know that ross perot was right about middle class jobs being sucked from america. And I give the kudos that it was not them, but special interests and repubs that concocted free trade for the purpose of off shoring to boost profits. But it makes little difference now, because the dems changed, and joined in on this treason upon the average american. Money talks like never before these days, and the S.C. added to the mess when they judged corporations were people with free speech, and money equals free speech. But if you allow a few folks a bullhorn, where the majority do not have a bullhorn because they cannot afford em, suddenly things are no longer equal, and the few have a louder voice to be heard than the majority. Or in other words money buys influence, and influence can win elections. That is not fairness and it certainly is not equality.

The only way an illegal picks up welfare is by including himself in a legitimate family, and the worker is supposed to check, but usually doesn't. There's no penalty for not and you risk complaints if you do.
                              b. We'd probably have to put away a substantial percentage of our rich people, and then who would give us all jobs, as they are the only ones who hire people, according to most of this board. Then again, the fines might pay off the national debt, so I dunno :rolleyes:

                              Actually, that is absolutely incorrect. Not sure where you are, but in Missouri and numerous other states, no identification is even required, or expected, and they are given food stamps and welfare. I worked with one woman from Guatamala who sat in the break room one day BRAGGING about how, in spite of her and her husband having full time jobs for Tyson's, she took two neighbors children, went to the welfare office, gave them a BS name and said she had no documentation and was a single mother. The welfare office operates on the presumption that what she is saying is true, and she recieves benefits even though they are employed, married, and have no children. I also know her to be illegal, because 6 weeks before, we were notified that ICE would be coming in the following week to check for compliance.. and she quit on the spot. 2 weeks later she shwoed back up crying about how "Yeah, I did not have proper papers and that was not really my name when you hired me.. but these, my new papers are real... trust me".. and they hired her back.

                              I would also like to ask just how, from my post, you determined we would "put away a substantial percentage of our rich people", considering my proposition does not result in ANY arrests of anyone.. merely civil fines?
