Birthright citizenship


Trump insists that he can revoke birthright citizenship through an executive order. This is the most bizarre and chilling thing I've ever heard a president say.

The 14th Amendment guarantees citizenship to everyone born on US soil as long as they are born to parents who are subject to US jurisdiction. Being subject to US jurisdiction means you can be arrested and put on trial if you break the law. Of course this includes US citizens, but it also includes tourists, business travelers, foreign exchange students, and illegal aliens. Yes, illegal aliens are subject to US jurisdiction. If they weren't subject to US jurisdiction, then nothing they do would be illegal. Foreign diplomats and visiting heads of state are NOT subject to US jurisdiction. So if the next Queen of England were to give birth in New York, that British prince would still not be a US citizen.

Anything this president can do, the next president will try it too. If President Trump is allowed to override the Constitution with a executive order in 2018, then in 2025, President Pinko McGungrabber will also be able to do the same thing after he takes the oath of office with his hand on a copy of Mao's little red book.

Revoking birthright citizenship will have drawbacks. A child born in the US might not be eligible for citizenship in the country that his parents are from. This creates a stateless person, someone who owes no allegiance to any country. For such a person to be deported, another country would have to be willing to accept them. Stateless people can pose quite a security risk. Osama Bin Laden was a stateless person after he was exiled from Saudi Arabia. Citizenship must begin at birth and end at death.

The primary benefit of birthright citizenship is that as long as you are born here, you are a citizen and that cannot be revoked. You can never be deported. Any foreign-born woman who loves America so much that she is willing go through labor or undergo a C-section has forever earned the right to stay.

Alfie Evans

1. When a doctor says A and a parent says B, I tend to go with what the doctor says. Usually the doctors are right. After reviewing Alfie's case, I believe that the boy is already brain dead and will never recover. Further treatment is a waste of resources.
2. If the doctor says it's hopeless, the parents have a right to seek a second opinion. But Italian doctors who have observed Alfie agree with the UK doctors.
3. Courts sometimes have to rule on what's in the best interests of the child. If the doctor says the child needs antibiotics and the parents say the child needs holistic organic regression therapy, the court should probably rule in favor of the doctor. But it's in the best interest of a child to live, not just receive palliative care.
4. If a patient is brain dead, not even palliative care serves any purpose. The only reason I can think of for a British court to insist that Alfie finish dying in a UK hospital is to uphold the authority of the doctors over the parents.
5. But this isn't just about socialized medicine vs private medicine. People needs to understand that life starts and stops with the brain. It's the only organ in the body that can never be replaced or transplanted. In the Baby K case, a hospital was required to keep an anencephalic infant on life support for 2 years because the mother would not accept that the baby was born brain dead.
6. Hospitals should not be required to eat the cost of keeping brain dead patients alive. Neither should insurance companies or the NHS for that matter. If Alfie's Army wanted to raise money for this hopeless case, they should have been allowed to do so.

BUILD ALL THE WALLS!



We must secure our borders. Especially our southern border. This isn’t just about people sneaking across the river, bringing in drugs and stealing our jobs. This is about preserving our language, our culture, and our way of life.

You liberals mock me, but take one trip to Clarksville and listen to how people talk. Listen to them use words like “y’all” and “ain’t”. Listen to them say “dinner” when they mean “lunch” and “supper” when they mean “dinner”. Immigration from Kentucky has corrupted our values. And Indiana is forced to accept these migrants by the federal government.

A sovereign nation needs secure borders to exist. This is a basic fact. Since the United States has never had secure borders, this so-called country is in fact still a collection of British colonies. “American independence” is the greatest lie ever told. Are we supposed to believe that a handful of farmers defeated the most powerful army in the world? If we’re so free, why do we still speak the same language as the Queen? Open your eyes to the House of Windsor’s lies.

Indiana can become the first sovereign republic in North America by building walls along all four borders. We must secure our borders against Ohio, a state where people drive like reincarnated kamikazes. We must protect ourselves against Michigan, two peninsulas filled with fanged sewer rats known as Wolverines. We must seal ourselves off from Illinois, the real home of Barack Obama. And don't even get me started on Kentucky, where the horses are better at breeding than the people.

Once the wall is built, we won’t have to turn back our clocks anymore.

Deficits still matter.

Congress and the President have lowered taxes. That is a great first step, but the second step should be to lower spending. The national debt is now $20 trilllion. There is going to be a point where people aren′t willing to loan the government money anymore. The federal government will either have to hyperinflate the dollar, default on some of the bonds, or a combination of both. Expect a HUGE debate on whether or not Social Security benefits should be available to men born after 1959 who failed to register for the draft.

Some people will claim that deficits don′t matter. If this is true, why bother with taxes at all? Just eliminate all taxes, and give everyone EBT cards on top of that. Only people who hate money could possibly oppose that. Except you all know it can′t possibly work.


Democrats won′t cut spending. Republicans will talk about cutting spending, but won′t actually do it. The real reason why Libertarians don′t win elections is because we would actually cut spending.

Joe Arpaio is granted amnesty

One of the most common arguments for building a wall to stop illegal immigration is that the immigration was illegal. These folks were quick to stress that they were not racist, and that they just wanted these immigrants to obey the law and come here legally. Even if these immigrants have jobs and are paying taxes, the pro-wall crowd wants them deported for breaking the law.

One wall won't stop a criminal from crossing a border. But three walls and a set of bars can stop a criminal from going anywhere at all. Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a man sworn to uphold the law, cheerfully broke the law instead. If you want immigrants deported for breaking the law, you should want US citizens incarcerated or fined for breaking the law.

Joe Arpaio should be subject to the same justice as anyone else. Instead Donald Trump pardoned him.
