Why Enforce the Law?….When you can just Embrace The Economic Reality.

Cross Posted From Stiknstein…has no mercy

Wave a magic wand….Print up some new Id’s…….and create citizens where there were once felons….The convolutions and twisted logic the Economic Reality crowd put’s itself through in order to justify Amnesty seems to do just that…….

The Pensacola News Journal Ran this article:

( the important issues facing Congress next year are many……)
One of them is Drugs.

At its heart is one underlying reality: There is a demand for Marijuana in the United States — and a need to supply it from Mexico and elsewhere — that has to be satisfied.

If it isn’t done legally, it will be done illegally.

To deny that and to seek purely law enforcement solutions, ignores economic reality. (Our current) badly flawed effort costs hundreds of billions of dollars a year, fills our jails, fosters corruption, feeds the criminals who fill the demand — and fails to keep relatively cheap pot from being widely available in almost every community in the United States.
The only way to beat illegal marijuana is to include an effective pot legalization program that fills the demand for the most popular drug.

Then, instead of wasting tax dollars on a continued huge government administrative and police bureaucracy, we can all benefit from the economic impact of a solution that helps the economies of both the United States and Mexico.

Neighborhood dealers will benefit from a program that gives them assurance they are selling legal pot; both the local and national economies will benefit from legal dealers and users who pay their full share of taxes and can live, work and smoke openly; and the federal government can be spared the expense and turmoil of trying to root out millions of illegal drug users.

Call it amnesty if you want, but allowing current drug dealers who already sell here to enter the government drug program will give these dealers a seamless way of complying with the law and defusing the need for police action.
Then, after a grace period, they would face serious penalties for continuing to deal if they are not in the program.

HEY……..IT SOUNDS SO REASONABLE…..SO RATIONAL……WHY DIDN’T WE COME UP WITH THIS BACK IN THE 60’s?
You might have figured out by now this article wasn’t really about POT. But it might have well been. ( I ONLY CHANGED 22 WORDS)….

Justifying granting amnesty to those who break the law because it might make good economic sense is flawed policy. If it wasn’t we’d have legalized drugs years ago. It makes great economic sense…..But the issue demands an approach that is a bit more complicated.
Illegal Immigration demands a comprehensive solution too, but should economics be the factor over riding all others? In the last 20 years, poor policy, and just plain indifference have allowed a national security and national soverignty issue to somehow morph into an economic one.

The fact that we can’t and don’t seem willing to even control our borders should be our primary concern above all others! This goes beyond economics to National Security as well as a host of other issues like soverignty, and protecting our citizens. Is securing our borders and enforcing our current laws so great an economic threat to our country that we cannot now afford to do this? Do we have no other choice but to “submit” to the “Economic Reality” of our failure to secure our country?


Let’s change the Paradigm……………..
THIS IS “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”:

  • Secure the border by any means necessary. This includes the Military.
  • Stiff penalties for employers, which are actually enforced.
  • No taxpayer funded programs for illegals or their families.
    (including school for children of illegals and non-emergency medical
    care for any illegal)
  • No “Anchor Babies” (no automatic citizenship for children of
    illegals born in the US)
  • No path to Citizenship in any name or form for those here illegally.
  • No Guest worker program until the above measures are put in place
    and the need can be PROVEN
  • English only education and the official language of the USA

This is the “Comprehensive” Plan our elected officials should be embracing. We create our own economic reality……Do this, and the so called “Economic Realities” change significantly…….

Others who know what a Paradigm is and how to change it:
The Un-Cooperative Blogger Has a draft bill…..
Right Truth has Keith Ellison’s plan for the sharia paradigm
