  •  Fact- more immigration would help soc sec (2+ / 0-)

    You asked people to put their plans in the comments.

    Think liberally.

    Immigration is also not necessarily bad for the environment. Our individual  carbon footprint is not preordained or based solely on where we live.  Also, not everyone who wants to come to America is poor. Some have air conditioners, cars, and fly in airplanes.


    •  Well... (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't say I'd agree with them!

      As long as it doesn't add to population, I'm fine with it. But I'm frankly quite worried that we are already living well beyond our means, in terms of the environment.

      Ultimately, I'm a believer in the system. I think we all need to put in our comments and our ideas. I believe I am right on things, but I know everyone else believes that, too. So, I allow for the possibility I don't have the right answer (despite what I might feel) and they do.

      I welcome your ideas on this. Every idea I've seen here has been vastly superior to what we're getting from the other side.

      And, the system only works if there are relatively free inputs and everyone participates. So far, there's been entirely too much screaming from our opponents, and not enough from us. So, please, don't mind me. If you believe it, scream it. That's the American way!
