SPOUSAL IMMUNTIY AND IMMIGRATION

The spousal rule or privilege as it’s known, helps a husband and wife from having to testify against each other in order to keep marital harmony or bliss. The law differs in every State and the Federal government also has it’s own interpretation of it. This law applies to any criminal and civil litigation but it does not, at least in the Federal government, apply to administrative hearings, which all immigration cases are.

One of the questions that you are asked when you go before an immigration adjudicator is “where did you meet your spouse?” This question, while harmless, could lead to the destruction of a family, because if you met your spouse in the U.S. while they weren’t supposed to be there, then immediate removal is required and their chances of entering the U.S. or becoming a naturalized citizen have become almost nil, unless you can pay the hefty fine and are Bezos or Musk. The one thing about this exemption of the spousal privilege in administrative cases is that it disproportionately affects minorities, in this case Hispanics. The adjudicator is careful to remind you that this is not a criminal proceeding but that answering any questions falsely could lead to criminal charges and fines and immediate removal, those charges do though have a statute of limitations, that’s why I can write this blarticle. The problem here is that if you met your spouse while she was in the country illegally and you have a child together, the government has determined that you have no protections. This change to the immigration policy is fairly recent and wasn’t around when the mass exodus of Europe to the U.S. was happening. The question, “where did you meet your spouse?” should have no role in the process. Are they just interested in your love story? No. Do they want to hear a romantic quip about how we saw each other across the room? No. (oddly enough though). What they are looking for, even though all kinds of criminal history checks are done both in the U.S. and from the country they are emigrating from, is a last ditch effort to not allow you entry. Being in the U.S. illegally, that’s prior to legal entry, disqualifies you from entering for 10 years for the first offense.

This country uses these people as cheap labor in numerous industries which helps keep prices relatively low, they even have laws that do not allow you to go to a business without a fair warning, in this case a week. This allows the business owner to prevent their cheap labor from being taken away. These people work endlessly but they are not suppose to fall in love or find a soul mate, they are supposed to be robots. That question, which could leave you open for intimidation and coercion for up to ten years by anyone that knows that person’s past, should be removed from the questionnaire. Some people even make it a business by charging these people massive amounts of money to either facilitate their marriage and/or keep their secret. Where they met should not be a deciding factor if they are eligible to be a family, it should be asked when making a biopic in an anniversary video to show their children and grand children about how brave grandma was.

PANAMA

As the U.S. grapples with how to best deal with the Central American countries of El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Guatemala and what is the best way to curb illegal immigration, it needs only to look at two scenarios, Iraq and Panama, the two countries that we invaded with our military and tried to rebuild. While Iraq is seemingly a failure, Panama is thriving 30 years later. Why is that? No seriously, why is that? I think it has to do with the fact that one country was a democracy prior and the other wasn’t. One is surrounded by dictators while the other isn’t but mainly because one uses our currency as the every day currency while the other doesn’t. So it seems that, while our current leadership tries to figure out a way to curb immigration by taking down the drug trade and introducing business opportunities, as I read in a recent article, and I applaud those efforts, wish I had thought of that, the best way to get that desired result is to look no further than why Panama worked and you don’t see an over flow of Panamanians at our border. It seems that if you find a way to invade, and the same reasons that you invaded Panama might work,, and you use the same nation rebuilding tactics in those countries, introduce the American Dollar as the main currency, you will get your desired result and you will cure immigration once and for all and you will undoubtedly go down as one of the most effective administrations in the history of this country. You will also have the added bonus of controlling those countries currency, as we are the only country that prints the American Dollar. Panama worked, make that your blue print. I get that an “invasion” might be a tad much… Figure out another way to make the U.S. Dollar their every day currency. I guarantee you it will work or my name isn’t Orville Redenbaucher. Alright, it isn’t and I can’t guarantee it will work but it did in Panama.

There are a lot of unseen bonuses if their currency was our dollar but the biggest is your influence over anyone from the east (China) trying to influence countries in our backyard. Plus the Euro is a perfect example on how expanding a currency can make it stronger. Prior to the formation of the Euro, there were maybe two or three currencies in Europe that were stronger than ours, now, all of Europe has a stronger currency than the U.S.. I’m not saying it has to be the answer but it would resolve a lot of problems on this side of the Atlantic. I know that the fear is that we would be the Germany of the Euro on this side but that kind of selfish attitude is why China is going to surpass us as the superpower of the world. Stop being selfish and start thinking out of the box a little.

THE BORDER PATROL, THE OUTRAGE, THE WTF WHY NOW AND NOT BEFORE?

Jakelin is dead

Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday expressed outrage at how Border Patrol agents on horseback confronted Haitian migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying the situation brought to mind how such tactics have been “used against the Indigenous people of our country, [have] been used against African Americans during times of slavery.”

“Human beings should not be treated that way,” Harris said, from Yahoo news.

Vice President Harris is absolutely right. Having the Border Patrol on horse back bearing down on you is as frightening as it can get for immigrants, all immigrants. So, being a former Border Patrol Agent myself, I ask why is it more evil now then when it was being done to Hispanics? Most people crossing the southern border are Hispanic and they have faced these same events and worse for many many years but the outrage is being let out now. Why now and not before? I don’t disagree with the Vice President but the TBS method is an unofficial guideline to how the border patrol does its work. TBS are initials for “turn back south” and the methodology is employed by the Border Patrol to limit arrests and save money on confinement, transportation, and court costs.

The reason for me is simple, I spoke about it before, in my previous blarticle. The Vice President can empathize and sympathize because the Haitians could be her daughter, her son, her mother or her father. It’s easier to empathize/sympathize when you can identify with the people being mistreated and the VP is in a position of power and authority where she can fix how these procedures should occur. It isn’t that she doesn’t care about Hispanics, it’s that she can’t identify with them as much as she can identify with the Haitians. It’s instinctual. I agree that these people should not have been rode at or towards but should have been confronted calmly and told that they have to return back south, unless they are making a run for it, then, well, then those horses are pretty damn fast and you will see them come right at you. The point being, until we can see each other as one race, the human race, instead of identifying each other by the amount of melanin we have or by the origin of our language, then this going to be the norm.

In BP detention centers, Hispanic children have been separated from their families, sexually assaulted, have died in custody, Hispanic women have been sexually assaulted, had their uteruses removed and had their children taken from them but there was no ?LM movement or outrage that somehow spurred change that would have prevented this from happening to Haitians. So now you’re shocked, I’m not, inaction leads to greater more horrendous acts, as does the lack of accountability. I hope the VP can spur (I hope you get the pun here) change and rewrite policy to where people are treated humanely and that accountability somehow makes its way into the system. To the BP, Just remember, the illegal immigrants are your customers, without them you wouldn’t have a job, so treat them like you would any other business, like you want their repeat business because they keep you employed and living that good government paycheck life. They’re not your plague, they’re the reason you can afford those giant shitty looking belt buckles.

I’m not very smart but how does that old saying go, they came for the Hispanics and no one said anything, now they came for the Haitians and there is only the VP left to say anything? Something like that. Point being, if you address wrong when it happens, then you don’t have to worry about it happening to you. And if you don’t have that address, its the southern border.

There is one sure way to pull everyone together, an alien invasion, I mean from outer space, not Belize. We find alien life, we’ll find a way to hate them, then we can all come together in that hate. In the end though, we’ll be listening to their martian music and wearing their jupiter clothes. Too bad it takes hate to bring people together, it would be much easier if it was cheese puffs.

GYMNASTS SEEK AND GET SATISFACTION

The U.S female gymnastics team made news this week by testifying in front of congress about the delayed response by the FBI in a sexual assault case that would eventually put the team’s doctor, Larry Nassar, in prison for the rest of his life. The gymnasts, and rightfully so, were aghast and dismayed on why it took a year for the FBI, who have garnered the nickname Female Body Inspectors due to their reputation and the t-shirts that are sold at the Washington National Airport, to respond to their complaints and, according to testimony, how callous some of these agents were to their assertions on the matter. Ooof, that nickname is coming back to haunt them. In 2017, one of the female gymnasts, filed a complaint with the USOC and in 2019 with the FBI. The gymnasts would get relief, that’s how the courts put it, I call it AFT justice, or about fucking time justice, on their matter in 2021 and would get a paid settlement of half a billion dollars in a civil suit that took all of two days to agree on. I fully believe they deserve the payout and much more. I’m extremely congratulatory and supportive of their efforts to hold everyone accountable. BUT, this blarticle ( blog+article = blarticle or blah + article = blarticle, depending how you view my piece of work or shit, again depending on your point of view) is not about them, it’s about the little known people that don’t have their resources.

In an immigration detention center run by DHS, Hispanic women would go in for routine gynecological examinations and walk out without a uterus. Hysterectomies were the cure for everything, from heavy periods to the common cold for these ladies. I wonder what did they do with those uteruses? Were they used as skin grafts for U.S. Citizens? Did the doctor tell them to put lotion on prior to the operation? It puts on the lotion or you will not get medical treatment? These hysterectomies have been happening since the early 2000’s and if it wasn’t for the bravery and courage, which I understand mean the same thing but I think it’s necessary to double on it, of an RN who decided to blow the whistle, these women would have never gotten any relief. That detention center no longer houses women but that doctor, I believe, still practices OB/GYN. You see, while the gymnasts, and I appreciate their effort and it makes it easier for these immigrant women to seek relief in court because it puts a case on the docket that they can point to, were outraged and rightfully so, their are other people that have been seeking relief for a long time. The gymnasts case, of a doctor using his position of power to do horrendous acts, and their effort to bring this situation to light, will help these immigrant women who have filed complaints for quite some time about a doctor using his position of power to do horrendous acts. No offense, but it takes an Aly Raisman to get things done because a Catalina Maria Gonzalez-Rivera would just not have the same resources available to her and will eventually get laughed out of court.

So, what did the DHS do with these uteruses? Did they go full blown Cruella and now are wearing pubic hair fur coats? It puts the lotion on…. Was it a decision to give an abortion prior to pregnancy? It puts on the lotion…. Was it that they didn’t want to sexually assault women so they removed the uterus and now are going to town on it, sick fucking bastards….. Whatever the sick and depraved reason, these immigrant women’s fight for justice began a long time ago with no resolution in sight and they are deemed victims but the U.S. Attorney’s office has yet to put a perpetrator in prison. A victim without a perpetrator, I guess is like a woman without a uterus….. I don’t know how to finish that so let me end it their.

For all those sick motherfuckers that take advantage of the weakest most vulnerable people in our society, rest assured… you’re safe….. because no one seems to give a fuck or they give it, when they detach the uterus from the body and then they discard the evidence, uuuugggghhhhh… just vomited in my mouth.

This blarticle is not a referendum on racism. It’s more an insight how justice is delved out. Aly looks like she could be the daughter of 90% of the people in positions of power or authority so there’s innate instinctual feeling to protect her while Catalina Maria doesn’t, so there’s this separation of emotional attachment or even trust in what she says. It’s not racism, it’s human behavior. The people in those positions can’t help it. There has been very few U.S. Attorney’s that were not… white non hispanic and there has never been a Director of the FBI that wasn’t white non hispanic. I am NOT saying in any way that there is any racial animosity components, I am saying that they are acting instinctually and sometimes that doesn’t bode very well for people of different ethnicities. Even the few African American U.S. Attorney Generals had those same instincts, that perceived attacks were sometimes due to a racial component, and if you are listening, it wasn’t true, it’s just your instincts kicking in.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

What do you do when someone is causing your child distress and the authorities have refused to look into matters? The U.S. Attorney’s Office, who years ago failed to file any charges on immigration issues on people, while the people had good intentions for those immigration violations in my opinion, but nevertheless committed those violations. The woman was in the country illegally and the man was a Federal employee and they were dating. The woman gets pregnant so the man decides to marry her and to try and find a way to bring her back legally. Unfortunately, the woman committed other violation while in the country illegally, nothing of a vile nature, she used a fake ID to get money for a medical procedure to save her own life. The violations were made known as early as 2007 but they refused to file charges but they have since placed the whole family in a situation where they can’t really do anything, except for the man, because he might just be a moron, because he was facing ten years for his part and she was facing 30 years if they complained. But now the authorities seem like they can do whatever they want. They place people in the child’s kindergarten class, ask favors of her so she could obtain her Naturalization papers, really the only way to get a good job, and ask the man to have sex, same favors, or they would charge her and the man, {another guy asked, we’ll just call him pink dick for now}. They pick up the kid from a school trip and whereabouts are unknown for hours, just drop him off, show the child gay child porn and still the authorities fail to make any investigation. The States pretty much tell me they can’t help these people. So how do I now protect them from waking up with their pants undone, or demanding more favors from her or entering his school. What are the remedies? The one thing the U.S. Attorney’s Office did state was that they feel that the man is a threat to the public, a public safety issue, which they use Public Safety health services, which the U.S. Attorney is the chief of in every State, which now limits what gets put into the record and they just say the man is crazy. When the man asks them why they didn’t just file the appropriate charges when they had them, they just said, we do what we want. This is frustrating. No one investigates them. They are trusted to do the right thing. So now there’s the catch 22. Well, I wrote it, let’s see what happens now.

CATCH 22 OF THE NON CITIZEN CITIZEN

<> on September 3, 2010 in Wellington, Colorado.

Undocumented citizens are a vital and integral part of the workforce. They work the jobs most U.S. citizens wouldn’t even think of working and, more to the point, they work jobs that employers wouldn’t hire a U.S. citizen to do in order to pad the bottom line, in some cases just to make a living.

Unauthorized Immigrants and U.S.-born Workers Have Different Occupational Profiles

This chart shows that undocumented citizens dominate the service, construction and farming industries. Let’s take each service one by one.

The service industry or the tertiary sector of industry is made up of waitresses and waiters, housekeepers, home health care workers, bartenders and we’ll add manufacturing jobs (since it isn’t added in the above chart) in the chicken factories and the like. Undocumented workers make up 33% while U.S. born workers make up 17% and I’m guessing that other 50% ran when you tried to ask them so, most likely, part of the undocumented crowd. These workers make less money then their U.S. counterparts, generally, and most likely do not have health care benefits, definitely do not have any safety nets like social security or maternity leave and will never see a pension. There is no 401K program for them or any ability to start an IRA. They sacrifice to keep our luxuries cheap. Salads are only $6 because of them and that’s a substantial mark up. Hotel stays are affordable because they are the people that mop the floors, clean the rooms and keep your boilers working but you never see them. And when you do, you throw a temper tantrum, i.e. the lawyer from NYC that famously went instagram special at a restaurant for yelling about the illegal workers in the kitchen and wanted them thrown out of the country because of their lack of loquaciousness but first he wanted the food he ordered.

Thinking about it, that paragraph pretty much takes all the industries they work in into consideration. Undocumented workers do the hard labor and menial jobs that need to be done but no one else wants to. This is the trade off for not having proper paperwork. They have to take the jobs no one else wants, get paid less than minimum wage, not ever get sick and make due to pay for themselves here and their families abroad. It’s a tough ask. Then you have political pundits that want them gone… at least until dinner time at their favorite restaurants or when the hotels they own need cleaning, then they can return, but right after they must get out, until tomorrow.

The reality is they don’t want them gone, they just want to have something to bitc….. gripe about. Their faux angst about people crossing illegally is just that.. faux, I’m pretty sure that means fake. They know exactly where these people are but they made laws that doesn’t allow for them to be caught. They drafted laws to give all service industry employers time to make sure that these people aren’t caught. Any raids into a business has to be given by written notice, one week in advance, in writing, I might have mentioned that already, with the exact time and place they are going to show up.

So the catch 22 isn’t any of what I just mentioned, even though very awful, it’s that these people, in particular the women and children are the most abused, I mean raped and molested and kidnapped, people in our country. That is a true fact. The problem is that they have no legal recourse and sometime the perpetrators are the ones that are suppose to do the investigating. The courts will not entertain any motion for relief and, more to the point the non citizen citizens are too scared to request help. As you see, even women that are here legally sometimes find it difficult to speak up, imagine being a non citizen citizen and your tormentor happens to be someone with some authority. I speak through personal experiences, having been in the Federal system for twenty years. I can absolutely tell you that their lives can be a nightmare that they can’t do anything about.

This is also why Hispanic COVID deaths are so high. They have to share a one bedroom apartment and they all have to go to work. They don’t have the option to stay at home and call in sick. They can’t receive unemployment benefits. They have no choice and you still treat them like bastard children from an unwanted pregnancy that your girlfriend had while your wife was at home taking care of the children you already ignore as you force these women to have sex with you and show their kids child porn. Well that was a mouthful. All this is easily preventable if you had the ability to empathize. You don’t have to love them, you just have to treat them like human beings. You know karma is a bitch and one day she will rear her beautiful head and you’ll start understanding.

If you are going to exploit them as cheap labor, you can at least give them the full protection of the law, but seemingly they get exploited and they get screwed, better yet are forced to get fucked.

It’s not slavery but it’s not not slavery either, it’s inhumane.

WHY ARE YOU SURPRISED ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

In the 1980’s the CIA, as it has been discovered, ran illegal drug operations to support the Contras against the Sadinistas. The Nicaraguan Revolution (Spanish: Revolución Nicaragüense or Revolución Popular Sandinista) encompassed the rising opposition to the Somoza dictatorship in the 1960s and 1970s, the violent campaign led by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) to oust the dictatorship in 1978–79, the subsequent efforts of the FSLN to govern Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990, and the Contra War, which was waged between the FSLN-led government of Nicaragua and the United States-backed Contras from 1981–1990. The revolution marked a significant period in the history of Nicaragua and revealed the country as one of the major proxy war battlegrounds of the Cold War, attracting much international attention.

The CIA backed the drug cartels, one being Pablo Escobar and some making the Fortune 500 list, in exchange for money that was used to buy guns for the Contras. This was done in order to be able to fund the Contras without having to go through Congress at the time. The Cartels became extremely powerful, so much that it controlled the governments in the countries that they were in. Now, the people, the regular people, who make caravans and try to come to America, away from these drug war torn countries that were essentially helped by some of our agencies, try and escape the gruesome life that they are forced to live, by coming here and requesting asylum, which we mostly deny. These people are hard working peaceful people that don’t want to be part of a drug cartel and they don’t want their kids mixed up in these criminal organizations, yet we see them as parasites, mongrels and low life wet backs who don’t deserve entry. We don’t even keep them together when they get here, mass separations, or give them proper health care, mass deaths while in custody.

Does that seem right to you. To form lawless gangs and then abandon the people that these lawless gangs end up destroying. Did you think that these people, whom found extremely lucrative organizations, were just going to abandon their money making ways because the war in Nicaragua was over? I’m not saying to just let the caravan of people in and live for free off of our dime but a plan, a Marshal Plan, should be in order. We should at least fix what we destroyed. So are you surprised that they are migrating? I am not, I’m surprised that more aren’t leaving. Now, the U.S. can’t come right out and say that it is their fault, and if I were President I definitely would not do that but I would take some responsibility, in private, and find a way…. We fixed Europe when they started the war, we gave Germany money to rebuild and they assassinated 6 million Jewish people, are you telling me that you can’t do anything for the Latin countries when we gave rise to the power of the Cartels? A Marshal Plan, reroute some businesses to central and South America, wipe out what you brought in, the drug cartels, and help the good people. We are, after all, the greatest country on the planet. And even we weren’t the greatest country on Earth, the profits from our illicit drug distribution and sales must have been amazing, use some of them.

One word… perspective. The way you see the immigration problem and the way they do. You broke it now you should find a way to fix it. At least try. Believe it or not, the asylum seekers actually have a good case under the Geneva Convention to seek asylum. That’s because the administration responsible for this mishap also named the follow up operation to get rid of the Cartels as a war or the “war on drugs”.

The Geneva Convention relative to Protection of Civilian Persons in time of War or the fourth Geneva Convention or GCIV along with parts of the Hague Convention can be used to seek relief for asylum seekers if they can show that their conditions or their sufferings come directly from the actions of this country and its subsequent “war” on drugs. I’m not sure if this has ever been tried but it can’t hurt. It’s a novel approach to the law.

This is a 5 Terrorist 5 Kilos excerpt

Some of the first paragraph was taken from Wikipedia, you know, the smart part. Basically all of it but the first sentence.

SANCTUARY CITIES

sanctuary cities

Across the U.S. there are sanctuary cities that protect illegal immigrants, mostly Hispanics from abusive immigration laws. The problem with these sanctuary cities is that they don’t enforce the law, any of them. The likelihood of one of these immigrants becoming a victim of  a serious crime are higher, as are the chances that the crime will not be investigated. We give into these sanctuary cities only to be abused by other methods. It’s a double edged sword of getting cheap labor for the luxury of avoiding deportation and not being able to take advantage of the amenities that this country has to offer. Illegal immigrants are most likely to get sexually assaulted, become victims of violent crimes and have no outlet providing them protection due to the fact that people view them as non-tax payers that aren’t afforded these protections due to their status. What you have is these people that tell you can stay but only if you do what I say. So I don’t know if I would call them sanctuary cities as much as I would call them cattle farms.

If the State were to charge them State tax and allow them to have all the amenities that they give their regular citizens, like New York presently is by allowing them to get driver’s licenses, then you might have a recipe for something that could work. Trust me when I say that these people would be the most law abiding citizens there are.

This blog is not an opinion. This comes from personal experience of being a Hispanic immigrant and former LEO and having a Hispanic immigrant family that had problems with the immigration process, won’t go any further.

DEPORTED VETERANS

deported veterans

This article is going to be short. I notice that most, if not all, deported veterans are of Hispanic descent. I understand that coming into the country illegally is wrong but if you wanted to deport these brave souls who put their lives on the line for our country, wouldn’t it have made more sense to have done it prior to their enlistment and their service to our and their country? What no news article has ever researched or reported on is how many illegal citizens have died in these foreign wars for us. When I served in the military, joined during the first gulf war, they checked my immigration status. The military found me legally able to serve, doesn’t that automatically give these people the right to stay in the country when an arm of the government finds them lawfully able to put their lives on the line? Isn’t a DD-214 just as good as a green card? It’s unseemly to be seen as a country that doesn’t fight it’s own wars and battles. It almost looks like we kidnap people from other countries, make them fight our wars and then kick them back out. We should give these people their citizenship and then, if they break a law, treat them like someone who has broken a law, not an a foreign intruder or enemy combatant.

Other countries that allow foreign fighters offer these soldiers citizenship after a certain amount of time of service, most notably the French Foreign Legion who offers these soldiers French Citizenship after three years of service.

SHOULD THE USA TAKE OVER MEXICO

usa mexico

Should the U.S.A. try and acquire Mexico? That sounds funny right. In this day and age, one country acquiring another seems like a funny and even crazy idea, but is it? Do you know most of our problems are do to imaginary lines, borders. Wars are fought over these lines, walls are being built because of these lines, poverty is in large part because of these lines and how someone is perceived is because of these imaginary lines. If you were to get rid of these imaginary lines, you would get rid of almost every problem we have, maybe even climate change, which is not because of these lines. It is my opinion that this is the next logical step in the evolution of our world, to become a one country (which would not even be the right word for it because without borders there would only be a world). Now, I am definitely not saying invasion, alright Turkey, I am saying coming to an agreement that would be advantageous to all parties involved. I’m thinking less early 17, 18, 19th century and more future globalization by mutual acquisition, like AOL and Time Warner, Dow and Dupont, and Heinz and Kraft. The thought of countries merging to become one sounds funny, maybe ridiculous, but I feel that it would solve almost every problem we have. I wrote a blog about discovering a new planet and then posed the question what would we do if it came to be. Would we put borders up and separate people or would we just inhabit the world as one people? A borderless world would no longer see endless wars or any wars (saving a crap load of money on building nuclear missiles), it would not see famine (hopefully) and it would not see racism (I mean, that would have to fade away with the older generation). I know what you’re thinking, how would we hold an Olympics without borders, while that does pose a dilemma, I’m sure we can figure it out. So here’s to taking over the world one small country at a time, lol, sure as heck doesn’t sound right but if done the right way, democratically, it would benefit everyone. While everyone balked at President Trump for wanting to get Greenland, I don’t know what his reasons for trying to acquire it were, the premise of becoming one world without borders is not that crazy. The election for whoever would become President of that World would be interesting, we wouldn’t have to worry about foreign interference anymore, so there’s that, look another problem solved. There would be no more foreign terrorism just domestic and there would be no need for money exchanges.

I watched the Daily Show last night and saw Sen. Rand Paul. He spoke with the host Trevor Noah and the topic was socialism vs. capitalism. Let me say that the Senator was my choice on the Repub side for nominee in 2016. His arguments though for capitalism and socialism aren’t far off from a moderate candidate. Socialism doesn’t work, he is right, but he is mistaking communism and authoritarian regimes for socialist republics, they are not. True socialism puts the power in societies hands and not an individuals hands, that’s individualism. The regimes the Senator spoke of were faux socialist republics or only socialist republics in name but not in practice. Socialism works like this. Everyone puts all their money in a pot and then it is redistributed equally among everyone. Then the government asks for money from the people and society as  whole then decides to say it is or it isn’t a worthy cause or reason to give that money. The regimes that the Senator spoke of would take your money and then take their part without asking society and then redistribute what’s left as they, this individual, deemed fit. That’s a pyramid scheme disguised as a government. The problem with true socialism is, it lacks incentive. Why become a doctor if I can be a janitor and get paid the same. That being said, capitalism is better to a point. The problem with capitalism is that it’s a wider form of communism. The CEO’s now become heads of their own entity and they redistribute as they see fit. That’s why they move their companies to countries where labor is cheaper. They pay their workers but if they can pay them less, they would and do. This is where being a borderless world would actually be most useful, greed would be put in check because now we can force a living wage to everyone in the world, no matter where you move your business. Capitalism would be put in check and there would be no socialism. Minimum wage would be the same and earnings for any particular profession would be in par all over the world. Then we can cap yearly earnings to a billion or two with the rest being forced to be taxed at a 100 percent rate to be redistributed to people all over the world as tax rebates.
