Illegal Immigration Butt Lovers Unite
I – the greatest debunker of dishonest political thinking of the 21st century (so far) – have found another great loophole in the modern American liberal political philosophy. Prepare for intellectual nirvana...

This is from Wikipedia regarding globalization:
Globalization refers to increasing global connectivity, integration and interdependence in the economic, social, technological, cultural, political, and ecological spheres.
For those of you who don’t know, many liberals oppose globalization for a number of various reasons. Some don’t like it because they believe it empowers corporations while simultaneously suppresses the poor. Others don’t like it because they feel globalization has effectively “Americanized” the rest of the world. The idea is that because America is the richest country in the world, our cultural icons (music, books, movies, etc.) are shared with the rest of the world and stomp out local talent. In other words, it makes the world a less diverse place (which is the biggest sin of all for liberals).

This idea also extends to industry. After all, how can an upstart fast-food restaurant in…Mongolia let’s say…compete against a McDonald’s franchise?

So what does globalization have to do with immigration? Well I am glad you asked. You see, the reason globalization exists is because of free trade.

Everyone acknowledges this. People who are anti-globalization are also anti-free trade. People that are for free trade don’t see globalization as a problem.

What some people don’t understand is that also the biggest pro-immigration people in the world are free trade believing conservatives. Don’t believe, read ‘em and weep

You see, to the economic conservative, people should be allowed to do whatever they want (economically speaking) as long as what they do is consensual and profitable. This means that corporations should be allowed to pollute (within reason) as long as consumers are still willing to buy their product. The idea is that if the pollution were really that bad, consumers would take a stand and not buy from the company in question.

This type of philosophy gives corporations like Wal-Mart a pass despite charges that they underpay their workers. Again, the logic behind it is that if Wal-Mart were that bad, no one would want to work there, and no one would shop there. In other words, if you don’t like Wal-Mart, don’t shop or work there…after all, they aren’t bothering you.

Unfortunately this logic gets a little contradictory when welfare exists, but that is another subject for another day.

Back to immigration…free trade conservatives take the same stance on immigration as they do with everything else. In there mind, if one person is willing to give another a job for a price that is agreed upon by both parties, then no one should be allowed to stop them.

Liberals, on the other hand, seem to agree with immigration for another set of completely illogical, and often a cry-me-a-river set of reasons.

1. Immigration made America great

This is a very "conservative", knee-jerk, "stuck-in-old-ways" take on a modern issue…especially by the self-proclaimed liberal party.

2. Families will be separated

This is a pretty lame excuse. If someone breaks into your house and starts sleeping in your bed, do they now have a right to bring over their whole family because otherwise “we would be breaking up families”? Does anyone actually believe this makes any sense?

3. They do jobs Americans won’t do

This is my favorite. I will admit that I haven’t been to New England lately, but I can’t imagine how bad those states must be. Think about it. Without illegals doing all the work Americans won’t do…who’s cleaning the toilets up there? Who’s mowing the lawns? Who does construction? Yes, I am mocking you. Illegals don’t do work American’s WON’T do…they do work Americans DON’T do.

Imagine a town of 100,000 people. It is a decent sized town and has everything a normal town would need to survive. Now picture 10,000 people moving into the town rather rapidly. What would happen? Well there would be thousands of jobs almost instantly created. With 10,000 more citizens, you will need more teachers, firemen, policemen, construction workers, restaurants (and therefore cooks, waiters, and dish cleaners), mechanics, etc.

Would the new citizens be doing jobs the old citizens weren’t willing to do? Does that even make any sense?

All this even makes less sense when you couple it with the liberal stance on outsourcing.

The common argument is that the US is losing jobs overseas to cheaper workers. This is funny for a couple reasons. First of all, unemployment is at historical lows. All the outsourcing in the world would not hurt our economy.

Second, and more importantly, liberals don’t want jobs outsourced, but they claim that we have more jobs than we can fill here in the US.

To clarify. To the liberal mind:

Outsourcing = bad/evil

Illegal immigrants coming into the country to "do jobs American’s won’t do" = good

So which one is it. Are we losing jobs to workers overseas or do we need to bring in more workers because we don't have enough people in our country to meet our labor demand?

What’s that? Is that the sound of liberals crying? Seriously, I don’t mean to turn everyone’s world upside down…I really don’t.

For those of you who still aren’t getting it (and part of that is me going off on subjects that aren’t directly related) illegal immigration = globalization. Think back to the definition of globalization as given by Wikipedia…

Globalization refers to increasing global connectivity, integration and interdependence in the economic, social, technological, cultural, political, and ecological spheres.
