The Death of the Democratic Party: Open Borders and Hysteria

If Democrats wanted to compete with Republicans without pushing us towards a second civil war, they would consider why the overwhelming majority of counties in United States voted for the rival party. However, displayed alongside their lack of self awareness are sinister motives and ambitions to replace Americans with more reliable voters.

Replacing the native population with foreigners is an assault on the very property rights at the foundation of our country. This fails to resonate because most Americans do not wish to be replaced. That was one of the main reasons for the election of Donald Trump in the first place.

There is especially a concern about an influx of people, legal or not, who vote for the same socialist policies that exist in their home countries. Look no further than California to see where this is heading.

German economist and philosopher, Hans-Hermann Hoppe, argues:

By admitting someone onto its territory, the state also permits this person to proceed on public roads and lands to every domestic resident’s doorsteps, to make use of all public facilities and services (such as hospitals and schools), and to access every commercial establishment, employment, and residential housing, protected by a multitude of nondiscrimination laws.”

According to a 2017 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), illegal immigrants contribute nearly $19 billion in tax revenue. That is one of the arguments made by proponents of open borders, and it sounds convincing on the surface, but what they leave out is that illegal immigration costs us nearly $135 billion. Leaving the total economic burden at about $116 billion.

The rejection of this subsidized push towards open borders tends to be met with accusations of racism from the same people who ignore blatant racism expressed by many high profile Democrats such as Louis Farrakhan, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. None of them are held accountable for this, but God forbid a Republican point out that we have limited resources and the citizens should come first. That might cause some left-wing hysteria.

The hysteria and the hostility that comes with it are among many other concerns mentioned by Brandon Straka, the founder of the #WalkAway movement, in his interview with Tucker Carlson. These ex-Democrats are hundreds of thousands strong so far, and they will undoubtedly contribute to the failure of the “blue wave” we are supposed to see.

It is easier for the left to replace the voters to gain power than to compete with the GOP by trying to serve the needs of the citizens. The left is both short sighted and power hungry, the right needs to get busy and actually conserve something, and we should all pay attention to where this debate is taking us.
