The Great Disconnect

This is like finding Waldo. Can you find the problem?

First Directive – You must verify that a person is a legal resident of the United States and has the necessary paperwork allowing them to work in the country before you pay them to cut your grass. This seems reasonable to me. I want people to be here legally. I do think it can be a more cumbersome process than necessary, but the issue of being here legally is an important one.

Second Directive – The State may not ask a person about their legal residency status before they give them welfare, medical treatment, driver’s license or anything else. This does not seem reasonable to me. I think the government has the same responsibility to follow the law that I do.

Let's boil this down to a simple one v one:

I cannot pay an illegal alien to cut my grass; on the other hand, the State takes money from me at the point of a gun to pay illegal aliens.

Being the State has its privileges, doesn’t it? Abuse under color of authority is a egregious crime.

I cannot pay for an illegal alien, so if they need money, they go to the State who can pay them, but only if they do not work.

Do you still wonder why we have a budget deficit?

Our government has a mental illness called liberalism.
