The best Mexicans are going to come here on visas; the educated, the fruit pickers on farm visas. They have the ability to do so. Only though without the ability on the lower end of the economic scale are going to come here illegally.

I wouldn't strut my ignorance on the topic, you should do some research on the topic, it is surprising actually. The level of criminality is higher than the general public in part because the average legal immigrant and citizen has more options for income.

Comment Trump is to the left of clinton (Score 2) 311

Even the WashingtonPost, who HATES HATES HATES Trump admits he is to the left of clinton on economics, trade, and foreign policy. Hard to believe but if you listen to what he says about cutting military spending by closing bases and dropping weapon systems, getting out of foreign alliances, ending trade deals, increasing tarrifs, and going after crony capitalism you would swear you were listening to Bernie Sanders and not the Republican cannidate for president.

Conservatives can't conserve anything. Its a brand name rather than an actual set of principles, and they hardly fight.

Trump is no conservative, but he is a fighter. That is probably why the base latched on to him, because he seems like he will actually fight rather than acquiesce like the Republican party has during my lifetime. They really do seem to play as the Generals to the Globe Trotters.

Harping on global warming in the first world countries and west is not going to do a thing. You have 6 billion people who want to industrialize and improve their standard of living through cheap energy. If you can somehow convince those people, and their governments, to hamstring their own short term progress for a long term gain you are one heck of a salesman.

Democratic enthusiasm is pretty low, whereas there was record turnout for the republican primary.

That certainly works in Trump's favour. Hispanic turnout is relatively low historically, and Obama got 71% of the latino vote the last time around.

Trump is doing better than any recent GOP politican with black voters getting around 15%, compared to Romneys 6%.

If Romney had gotten 5% more of the white vote he would have won. Of course down the line with different demographics, Republicans will have a harder time.
