80. They come because it's better here.
Edited on Thu Mar-30-06 11:45 PM by Gregorian
There is a potential difference. An electrical current flows when there is a potential difference. And the same thing applies for two different societies. A fence will not be needed when that difference is gone. Because it's not better here. It's better at home. And it saddens me to think that they would leave home in order to live a life that gives them what they need.

It only takes a little common sense. Not guards and a fence.

Most importantly:

I honestly believe that we are fighting to keep our standard of living. All of the talk about illegal immigration. The invasion of Iraq. It's all an attempt to fight instead of realize the inevitable- that our standard of living is artificially high.
