Illegal Immigrants: The Statist Scapegoat
by Jacob G. Hornberger sub-topic» Migration
Supplementary message to Republicans and Democrats: You ó yes, you ó are responsible for our nationís economic woes. Specifically, your welfare-state paradigm and your warfare-state paradigm are taking our country down. Your socialism, your interventionism, your militarism, your imperialism. Thatís the problem.
Yes, itís your statism ó the statism that you statists have foisted on our country ó that is the root of our nationís problems. Thatís the cause of the unemployment. Thatís the cause of the out-of-control spending and debt. Thatís the cause of the monetary debasement. Thatís the cause of the booms, bubbles, and busts.
The problem is that you people simply cannot take personal responsibility for what you have wrought with your statism. So, you do what statist regimes have done throughout history. You look for scapegoats when economic conditions go bad. Illegal immigrants are your convenient scapegoat. Theyíre not in a position to defend themselves.
