I feel there is a big difference between my home and the country. My home is private property, but the country I see as public property. And public property should be open to the public (all).
What you may "feel" has no bearing on the truth. This country is the private property of those who own it... the citizens. The country is just one big house owned by one big group called "citizens".
This world belongs to god, Who are we to say who can live where?
Just as you get to say who farts on your couch the citizens who own this country get to say who can live in it. The world does belong to God but the part of His world called the United States of America is under the stewardship of those who own it.
And how is it I have more right to be in this country than a Frenchman? Because I was born here?
Because your birthplace was within the U.S. you have fulfilled one of the qualifications that confer citizenship and therefore you are a citizen... the Frenchman wasn't born here and isn't a citizen of the U.S. until he goes through the process to fulfill other qualifications that allow him to become a citizen.
HAH! We are both men, and given life by the same creator.They have the same god givens rights that I do. So I don't see how one can say it is not a right. Sure they have no right to enter on my property,
This country IS your property! And mine! And the property of every other citizen! We most certainly do "own" this land! Why do you say they have no right to enter your property but have the right to enter everyone else's property? "Public" property is property owned by "we the people" .. not "them the whole damn world".
but if they buy their own what's the big deal? What right do you have to tell them they can not live on their own property or enter on public? So do men have a right to property? Or is it only some men?
You are confusing property ownership with citizenship status... they are not the same thing.
I'm all for protecting against foreign invasion, but not foreign immigration.
An influx of hundreds of thousands of illegal people IS an invasion! It isn't an armed invasion but it is an invasion of people who are not honorable enough to go through the legal process to come in.
So I think someone coming into my home and "farting on my couch"
(LMAO) is a bit different from someone farting on a bench in a public park.
You, and I, as citizens also own that bench in a public park. What part of "public" being the group called "citizens" do you not understand?
Yes they may suck our wel-fare states dry but so do many of our citizens. The better question is should we have a wel-fare state?
Now there you have a very good point! And I agree that a welfare state is a horrible thing... it is the very thing that entices illegal aliens to sneak into the U.S..
(I don't know much about this) Would a foreigner who ownsasmall homein lets say Utah, still be considered an illegal alien if he comes here by chopper (no papers of course), and lands on his property?What about off it?That would justbe wrong to own a homein Utahbut not be able to live there legally. Just curious...
If a person is not a citizen it doesn't matter if he filled a hot air balloon with farts and flew in that way.... no citizenship means the person is an illegal alien.... period.
In the case of the OP I see there were no charges other than entering the U.S. illegally. I guess they recognized that the god given rights (to arms at least)apply to all men!:celebrate
Wrong Sir! There is a God given right for all men to defend themselves... it is only in America that there is a written guarantee that the citizens have the right to use arms to defend themselves.
We know that firearm laws only restrict law abiding people, why would it be any different for immigration laws?
It isn't any different.... the law abiding go through the process of becoming citizens... the criminals (yes, they are criminals!) ignore the law just like all criminals and sneak in.
Buster, I'm still curious as to what concerns of the founders specifically (not whose')your mentioning?
