20 million illegals and you need everyone of them to vote for your New Messiah Joe Biden. Such the conservative you are.


Illegal immigration is not, nor has it ever been a major issue for me. I voted for Ronald Reagan who proposed a sweeping amnesty program. I live 50 miles from the Mexican border in a state with many illegals. The so-called "problem" is way overblown. It is successfully used by my party to trigger people who don't know any better. After all, we were proposing removing workers at a time when we had historically low unemployment. And the people doing the proposing are opposing minimum wage hikes and health care programs that 'might' make the jobs illegal are doing, tolerable to native born Americans.

Illegals enhance my life. They take care of me at every turn. At virtually every restaurant in which I eat. In every hotel. (Including Trump's.) My yard maintenance is dirt cheap and very well done. The food prices I pay are very cheap specifically because of undocumented farm labor. Very few people who enter without documents are Public Health/Community Health people coming here to do consulting. This has nothing to do with Biden at all. The wall is, for me, a solution looking for a problem. And.

I grew up here and am not in the slightest frightened by the almost excessively peaceful and law abiding people. I do not fear elements of Mexican and Central American culture that are joining with my lily white background. I honor Dia de los Muertos not fear it. Marachi music makes be happy. A 15 year old young lady having a Quinceañera does not send me running terrified to the gun store. Devout Roman Catholics are, in my experience, really good Christians with a devotion to caring for the poor. In short, I am not cripplingly terrified of brown people. And I am not hypocrite enough to support building a billion dollar wall while leaving employers virtually untouched for violating the law and hiring illegals.

Until now every single US Republican president has called for immigration reform. The current racist trend is what is feeding this obsession with overwhelmingly peaceful, law abiding and productive people chosen as a diversion for white rage. Rage that comes from a lack of upward mobility, stagnant or declining buying power, and a general sense that government is not listening to them. (It is not listening on the issues important to many Americans.)



A record-high 62% of voters support the Affordable Care Act, including 85% of Democrats and 36% of Republicans.

56% of voters say the ACA should be improved and strengthened, while 20% say the law should be struck down and 9% say it should be left alone.

79% of voters support health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and 61% of voters trust Joe Biden over Donald Trump to protect this coverage.


So why are republicans going after it? It is a loosing political issue? Because the health care industry had bought them out. They failed to do it in the congress so they are trying to do it in the courts. Why? Money pure and simple.

I wish you could get over your irrational fear of brown people. Immigrants are not coming here to harm you. Sad.

Hence why my money is on Trump.

I think people are too scared of COVID to vote. I personally would not trust voting by mail, I'm sure ballots will get lost in the shuffle.

And the dumbest part of all is that, if the Republican constituency wasn't as anti-immigrant as it has become in the latest years, they would find a lot of common ground with the immigrants on all sorts of issues.

:lol: I live in South Florida My girlfriend is Cuban. You tip your supposed brown people experience you consider them your servants, you look down at them as you so often look down at people on this forum. You have no point [rule 2 violation deleted].

Please outline where I fear brown people or ever used the term ever on this forum. If anybody displays their bigotry on this forum on a regular basis it's you and your never Trump syndrome. It is a extremely lame excuse towards debating. Call them whatever you want healthcare is not free and you haven't even come close to explaining how it is paid for or the system. You have ignored the millions of Americans who have had their premiums increase. You are Nancy Pelosi, pass a bill before its read then call anybody that question anything a racist. Project much.

3rd time asking how many illegals are in this country?

@wat0n And the dumbest part of all is that, if the Republican constituency wasn't as anti-immigrant as it has become in the latest years, they would find a lot of common ground with the immigrants on all sorts of issues.


Indeed they would. FGS they come here for jobs not government programs.. They know that they will not be eligible for those and they know that they will be in hiding without much chance of getting out.

The young undocumented men know something else too. They will not be able to go to bars. They will not be able to go on dates and God Forbid they want to get married and have a family. So they share a bedroom with three other guys so they can send money home to support their families and, God willing, someday hope to bring them North.

I see them at the clinic. Sick and injured. Afraid to go to the hospital. You know what it is like to be ill or injured in a strange place? no money? Missing your family and afraid to seek help because those people you miss need to have what little you earn for food?

Which one of us would do half as much to feed our families?

No my friend. The republicans are trying to get their base excited because they may only get a few hundred physicians from which to choose.

But you are right wat0n. There was a time when, what we then called "Mexicans" were overwhelmingly Republican. Immigrants are the very definition of capitalists. Sadly the US has contrived a complicated system to exploit them and then vilify them for their trouble.

Then an abject fool might post something like this:
You tip your supposed brown people experience you consider them your servants, you look down at them as you so often look down at people on this forum.


The same fool who, unlike me, wants to round them up, children and all, and kick them out of the country in an instant. Pricks like this have not a bone of compassion in them. They want to point fingers at me without knowing what I do to help these folks. But we know what Finfinder wants to do. Deport them without a cent. Send a young, educated, tax paying, college graduates. working as a teacher in a poor neighborhood, back to Guatemala, a country he last saw at the age of two. Why? Because they are an undocumented alien. That your gig? Cuban girlfriend. In your fucking dreams.

I have pretty much had it with republicans. I do not know a single one who is not a racist. Those who think they aren't have no idea how racist Trump's policies are. He just ordered the Feds to consider prosecuting companies which try to achieve diversity though hiring. This is Finfinder's way. Because, you know, like white folks are suffering reverse discrimination. Some day the republicans will come back as a party but not until they find some members with more intelligence than an ice cube and more compassion than a pirate.

:lol: Drlee by his own words, is saying he used to be a racist but now that he is voting for Biden he is not. It that a T shirt slogan? :lol: :lol:

No wonder you are a liberal. Can't ever debate the topic you pull out the race card when you have nothing intelligent to reply. You haven't attempted to discuss this like an adult ( a supposed but I doubt very much a Doctor)Blumenthall like. You haven't addressed a single point on how single payer healthcare can be paid, which is the topic not you projecting your unhappiness and racism in life. :

I assume you have lost this debate and are no longer on this forum to have an honest discussion and have been reduced to trolling and personal attacks. Make sure you tip your gardener.

And there is another thing they have in common with Republicans, indeed, one commonality that is even stronger than acceptance of capitalism: There are plenty of immigrants who are fairly religious Christians (both Catholic and Protestant, the latter actually following American Protestant churches), hostile to abortion and socially conservative in general.

Latin Americans are not as pro-market as Americans (although those of us who are willing to take the risks of moving abroad, and to the US specifically, are probably less averse to them than most) but there's plenty of religious people. If they were smarter/able to think long term, I think Republicans would try to pivot away from anti-immigration (at least from Latin America) in the long run and try to take advantage of this.

Oh, I agree with you that the media is being deceptive to a level that can be called "lying."

But it's also true that ALL FLU viruses can lead to lung scarring, and other permanent or long-term conditions, especially among people in their 80s.

So a normal flu bug has been used to shut down the economy and this has soured a lot of people's lives.

Another nonsensical comment from you know who.

Interesting though, and just about every old timer on this forum who cares, knows that I have posted extensively on this subject including funding.

What you appear to be doing is trying to change the subject. Nice try.

How about this. Why don't you look at the developed nations that have universal health care, pay far less for it than we do, have much better outcomes in most areas than we do, and cover every citizen and most visitors, and see how they do it. Or ask an adult to explain it to you. Just about everyone except some uber-stupid Trump supporters already know.

Meanwhile the death toll of the Trump virus, according to the CDC may already be as high as 266,000 and will likely hit over 400K before January 2.

A national mask rule would cut these new deaths in half. But Trump is encouraging people not to wear masks by his actions. Murderous just like all of his supporters who are such special snowflakes that they won't wear a mask so that some little girls grandpa doesn't die. Scum.

I'm not going to lock myself in my basement for 2 years because @Pants-of-dog and Drlee are never Trumpers

At some point you need to do The Shawshank. "get busy living or get busy dying" people don't want the King Makers with guaranteed incomes and pension preaching.

Maybe we should just start calculating and reporting daily death tolls of all deaths accidental or sickness like AIDS or old age every death every day. They can calculate abortions as half deaths. Display on those scrolling tickers like they do the stocks.

Oh Drlee has to make everything personal when he cant stay on topic.

No Drlee I was having a back an forth with the Canadians about healthcare. As you always seem to have an infatuation with me you butted /jumped into the conversation with like you always do with your typical pompous insults and stories why you are better and smarter than everyone on the forum because you have Mexican servants and drive a Porsche. ( :roll: because everything is true on the internet)

There are really not many old timers left on this forum I know one who posts here all the time,
actually pretty good friends lives in my town, hike on occasions and we are political opposite. The big difference here he is not a complete asshole like many who take this so serious. Doubt you can say that from all your years looking down at everyone here sitting bravely behind your keyboard projecting your broken life on everyone else. Thinking your post mean something. Ive done my time here despite people like you trying tell me to get off your lawn.

How about you stay on topic read all the post before you jump in and make a tool out of yourself by blindly calling people racist who don't agree with you. Maybe get some therapy so you can find some happiness in life maybe get your nursing degree grow a Chia Pet. Buck up and answer some question or run along Dr Blumenthal.

How many illegals in the USA? ( 4th time I have asked you) How do we pay for the entire poulation to have if free and which rites do we keep and which ones do we lose? (single payer healthcare system) . I don't care about Canada's if you actually read the post you know I already addressed this.

Locking oneself to prevent a possible infection has nothing to do with compromising yourself to your perceived enemies.

And such statement makes your perceived enemies look influential, which is, obviously, false.

In the US they are. And they have been for a long time. Indeed the statistics on all deaths are used by a wide variety of people engaged in research, public health and health care. If you want to know how many people died of snakebite in 2012 the number is available.

Corona virus in different for the obvious reasons. First it is under the category, "excess mortality". (It is not exactly what you think but close enough.) It is largely preventable and this prevention can happen in real time. Unlike cancer or auto accidents, there are immediate steps that can be taken to reduce these deaths. And....And this is why so many layman like those who post here don't get it, Corona Virus numbers affect the numbers researchers must use for their work in other areas.

So the answer to your question is that all mortality statistics are just as readily available as are Covid statistics.

LOL maybe you being from Hong Kong you missed all the sarcasm in my post.

What you have missed is all those people projecting their fear porn on this thread are Anti Trumpers. These same people were against the China travel ban and social distancing and are routing for the economy to collapse. All because they have this infatuation with losing the last election and worry they are going to lose the next. They are brainwashed to route against there own interest, they are frauds because they made this political from the start.

Well. Actually not. But here is a fun fact for you sport:

The ABC News/Ipsos poll showed 72 percent of adults said the president did not take “the appropriate precautions when it came to his personal health.” The same percentage of people also said Trump did not take the “risk of contracting the virus seriously enough.”


But you think they are wrong. Don't you sport? You disagree with the 43% of republicans who think he fucked it up.

These same people were against the China travel ban and social distancing and are routing for the economy to collapse.


Name one? I know that the economic collapse has cost me a shit ton of money and though I am the odd conservative in largely progressive circles it may surprise you to know that I have not met a single person who believes what you said they believe. It seems your trolling is going to be pretty lonely.

All because they have this infatuation with losing the last election and worry they are going to lose the next.


Well we'll see, won't we.

They are brainwashed to route against there own interest, they are frauds because they made this political from the start.
Use your words. Stop foaming at the mouth and look at what you wrote.

It was Trump who made this political. Not democrats or independents. Republicans backed him. The COVID epidemic should have been the vehicle that swept him into reelection. If he had done anything other than shoot off his mouth in outrageous ways, telling lie after lie and just let the CDC run the show he would have been a national hero. Republicans know exactly who to blame for this. Trump. Seriously. All he had to do is stand back and take credit for the work that professionals train a lifetime to do. But his ego, and yours finfinder, just can't do that. If he had just done three things, pushing mask wearing, facilitating massive testing, and insisting on contact tracing, we would have a fraction of the dead and he would be be able to slow walk to reelection.

But you back him sport. It makes you look oh so smart. It really does. Sure it does. Really. I mean it....ah...

Oh. And this thread is not about abortion though obviously you feel on stronger footing with that topic.
