We have been riding on immigrant hard work and ingenuity for a very long time. Our large economic sectors are the ones that have to do with advancement in technology and ideas. Now of course that we have clearly laid out to the world that we are hostile to everyone, the type of hardworking innovative immigrants that we want are no longer coming here.
I totally agree with the above, well thought out, and rational in its argument. In my opinion, many of the radically right posters on this forum don't really understand what it means to be a republican; they are just shit disturbers who happen to have a republican affiliation. Their behaviour and writing style are usually quite obtuse, ignorant and free of rational thought. With that being said, the people the OP is referring too are never going to admit that he has a good point, which is clearly evident when you read some of the responses to this thread.
