No freebies for illegals

  • Follow Letters

It is my understanding that the United States is about to acquire 9 to 11 million new illegal immigrants (the federal government can’t get an actual count). We have 7.6 percent unemployment nationwide and 8.3 percent in Georgia the last time I checked. I suppose the 47 percent of us who pay taxes will support the illegals, since they are already getting free medical care and Lord only knows what else.

Freedom is not free. I did not work in the workforce 40-plus years while paying taxes, and spend four years serving my country – and half of that time was spent in a war zone – for our privileges as American citizens to just be given away to illegal aliens, just for political votes.

I personally think we should eliminate the minimum wage

entirely and let supply and demand with the free market determine what people are paid. If the wages employers offer are too low no one will offer to work for them and then they will have to raise them until they get to the level where someone is willing to work at them.

The problem is the progressives are afraid of the free market and capitalism because it takes power away from the statists. You know who they are...they are the ones who think we are too stupid to take care of ourselves and need them to take care of us. Boy am I glad they weren't around in 1776.
