    Meanwhile, hoards of unskilled uneducated diseased ridden third world people are risking their lives just trying to get into this country. Go figure.

    And your Sharing polls with no methodology.... Did they actually poll all of gen x? Otherwise your polls are opinions not fact either

    Mexico won't let them in either. They have more stringent immigration laws than we do.

    In the interest of supporting their wishes, we should find somewhere to take them.

    Somalia or Iraq perhaps

    An opinion piece by a single individual isn’t representative of anyone but that individual. A random sampling poll of thousands of individuals done by a well known and accredited organization is however typically pretty accurate. (Go ahead and scream ‘Hillary by a landslide’ ignoring that she won what polls track — popular opinion)

    But if you think they are of equal validity, that’s entirely on you...

    I mean a more valid opinion is still just an opinion though right?

    Like I said, if you believe a random sampling of thousands of individuals using survey methods has the same weight as an opinion piece by a single individual, that’s on you.

    What makes you think its just liberals who think this? Because of a random Gallup poll? The US is beginning to pale in comparison with other countries. We are far from the happiest country, people can get better and more affordable healthcare in other countries. China is eating our lunch in combatting climate change, other countries are less violent than the US. Take New Zealand for example. Think about it this way. Why would you want to cruise on the Titanic if you knew it was going to sink? What Trump supporters have got to realize is technology, not migrants, made the Golden Age of Capitalism in the 50's obsolete. It won't make any business sense by today's standards to make clothing, shoes, or cheap knick-knacks when it can be done at the fraction of the cost in China and Bangladesh. Trump is trying to take us to the past, not the future.

    I don't want to live in the past, do you?

    Whether I agree with your political convictions or not is completely irrelevant because I am in total agreement with the bold text in your question cum statement.

    Thank you for saying it.

    They are only PR-ing themselves in hopes of increasing their popularity. There is no deeper meaning in anything they say and on the very rare occasion they have a quiet moment for introspective thought they blunt the opportunity with booze or drugs.

    And once again no one cares. These folks are full of crap. They are not going anywhere. We are not that lucky.

    Why don't they put up or shut up:

    What is your gripe with Europe? We have free healthcare too. Oh! I see! You highlight examples of countries that only one thing better than the U.S. Those countries that have just about everything better than the U.S. you'd like to obscure from sight.

    Yes they are and usually much lower but as an American citizen living abroad you still pay a tax to the US(besides local ones). IRS(?) has a global reach. This does not apply to any other citizenship.
    Lots of American friends tell me they will rebel if they had European like taxes:)
    I can argue we get more from that tax. Pros and cons.

    No thanks. You can keep them or send them to Antartica. Being "liberal" is one thing and that's OK ..... but being pompous azzholes is quite another thing. Being a movie or rock star makes not an authority on the way the world turns. We don't want 'em.

    Better than most immigrants we get these days. And they will come using the legal process in place for immigrants, another difference.
    And most likely I don't have to support them initially or their whole life with my taxes, battle for territory to sell drugs and many others.

    If you can get Robert DeNiro to purchase a condo down there you will be doing the world a big favour.
