Illegal Immigration

Illegal immigrants are a convenient scapegoat for our economic crisis. But with free markets and private property, the need for immigrant labor becomes obvious. Most immigrants, regardless of the color of their skin, are open to the ideals of liberty: private property, free markets, sound money, right to life, low taxes, less war, protection of civil liberties, and a foreign policy designed for peace.

Ron Paul proposed the following action steps for dealing with illegal immigration:

  1. Abolish the welfare state. The incentive to take a job at whatever wage available must prevail.
  2. Establish a generous visitor work program. Once we solve the economic crisis by introducing sound money, demand for domestic and immigrant labor will rise.
  3. Enforce the laws on the books with more border guards. Allow states and landowners to enforce the law and provide security assistance.
  4. Abolish birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants. [Current U.S. citizens will not be affected. Instead, babies born to illegals after a future cutoff date will no longer gain automatic U.S. citizenship. They will still have citizenship in their parents’ home countries.]
  5. End all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants.

    I am with Ron Paul on about 80% of the issues. Low taxes, audit the Fed, free trade, engage with foreign governments, reduce military spending, increase personal freedoms. But the immigration issue really hits home with me, and unfortunately here we are in 100% disagreement. Furthermore, this issue is critically important to me, as a native Texan.

    Ron, don’t you know that the only reason we have a flood of illegal immigration into this country is that NAFTA is 1-sided? In NAFTA, we explicitly forbid Mexico from subsidizing their farmers (which as free-traders we both agree is a good thing), but we explicitly allow the US to subsidize our own farmers (which to be fair we must both agree is a bad thing). If you’re so high on individual responsibility, don’t you think we should let our farmers (who are mostly huge corporations, by the way) stand on their own feet? Do they really need socialist government handouts? Well, if we stop subsidizing them, then Mexico’s farmers can go back to work — which they did just fine for hundreds of years, ending with the passage of NAFTA in the 1990s. Fair trade policy would mean a better Mexican economy, which would mean fewer immigrants (including illegals), and better relations with our neighboring country.

    Why do you instead promote poor relations with Mexico, a bad Mexican economy on our doorstep, and by proxy, unfair trade policies? That is inconsistent!

    Furthermore, why do you say engage with Iran and North Korea (which I totally agree with) but not Mexico? Can’t you see that is the epitome of hypocrisy?

    http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticker/article/282246/How-a-%22Very-Pessimistic%22-Ron-Paul-Would-Fix-the-Economy?tickers=^DJI,^GSPC,SPY,DIA,XLF,GS,AIG

    Your “No welfare for illegal aliens” idea is hilarious. It is based on a proven false premise — that illegals use more resources than they provide. The truth is the opposite — all research shows that illegals pay taxes but consume almost no government resources.

    I agree that we should reduce illegal immigration. Because I care about people: American citizens like myself, family and friends, who work so hard and make good decisions in order to succeed and also Mexican children who die in the middle of the desert because of a socialist-protectionist trade agreement that we made with their country.

    If you actually cared about illegal immigration (which you clearly don’t), you would try to solve it, rather than put together silly half-measures that “look” like immigration reform but under the covers are just useless propaganda. “Fences,” “no amnesty” — very cute, but show me a single example in the history of the Earth that anything like that has ever worked. Hmm, Berlin? Not so well. How about modern Israel? Hmm, failure too. Oh, what about Hadrian’s Wall for the Roman Empire? No, that collapsed.

    Seriously, read some history.

    What is so sad is that your approach to the “War on Drugs” is just the opposite. And there you are so right. Read a page from your own book and make an immigration policy that matches the brilliance of your drug policy.

    Shame on you.

    Please wake up and change your tune on immigration! If you do, you will find a lot more support from responsible, hard-working Americans!

    I look forward to the day when we can be in political alignment, because you “get” so many of the important things. Just not this one. Try harder.

    The Bible is a history book about people of faith. The Old Testament is a type and foreshadow of the coming of Christ. The New Testament was written for Christ-like followers. (Many religions go strictly by the Old Testament with behavior laws, even lawyers study the Ten commandments and most of our laws of the land also punish/jail/imprison people for breaking those laws) Love your neighbor as yourself. Christ came to stop the “eye for and eye” laws of the Old Testament. You didn’t see Jesus going around and killing people nor judging them, or punishing them. He allows the person to judge themselves, ask for forgiveness, get forgiveness and await the Final Judgment Day, when the Father God will either see your name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life or it is not.
    Your other question on “seed” is a complicated issue. I believe in the sanctity of marriage for pleasure and for procreation. When sex happens outside of marriage, its possible that pregnancy can and probably will occur. Then what? Hide the seed by destroying the possible offspring or be responsible.
    Sex can be additive just like drugs,nicotine, drinking and gambling. I think they ought to teach “responsible sex”, to prevent abortion. And marriage should be the goal to prevent loneliness and to continue the human race. Loving each other should be the goal and getting through life’s problems with the person you love. Commitment should be the cement in a marriage.
    There is a $1,000 fine to destroy an Eagle Egg in the nest.
    How does that compare to a human life destroyed in the uterus?
    Insurance and Medicaid pay an abortionist big bucks to destroy potential human life. I think, if as much or more value would be placed on a babies life, and the two people who want their babies life destroyed, were to be fined $10,000 for every abortion….I think it would stop most abortions. I think head stones should be made and men and woman should be made to remember the child that they destroyed. A part of them died too, and there is no way to grieve that loss in our society. There is a wall in Washington D.C. for all those lost in a war….but the babies bodies that were torn apart have no name and have no grave and have no one remembering them, except the man and woman whose seed created them in the shadows of their minds or in their darkest dreams. Millions of our people are walking around with that guilt upon their souls, what does that do to a society of people? Jesus will forgive them……that is how much Grace the New Testament gives……but I think our nation would be better off if only in rare instances, did a woman have to have an abortion. It has only been 37 years since abortion was legalized in the USA. Take a look at that generation and our country and you can see how relationships have diminished, families have deteriorated, love turned to lust and hope lost to our youth for productive lives and committed marriages. I think there ought to be a National Holiday in remembrance of those who lost their lives in at the hands of an abortionist. And those men and woman who sacrificed their own souls and live with the guilt the shame and thought in having killed their own off spring. They need much love and need to ask for forgiveness from a God who is reaching out to them with open arms. When a government condones wrongdoing it does not omit what God thinks of it…because if God created us……it saddens him to loose even one of his own.
    The Bible yes is a book that teaches ways to preserve the human life on this earth. To treat one another respect,with love, for a life that will bring harmony and peace upon this earth for generation after generation. We should be celebrating life. Celebration does not need to mean partying and getting drunk and getting laid…..!!!! Be thankful for life, and for love in your heart toward another human being that will not encourage more selfishness but more love and laughter and joy of being a father, a mother, a child, a baby.
    Our minds, our lives should be preserved not destroyed. We should protect what we see, hear and do in our lives so that we bring only those things that are good for life into our life.

      Friedrich Nietzsche also said:”The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

      Yeah he sure does think that one shouldnt be a free thinker at all…(sarcasm)

      Dont be so quick to call abortion murder(i’m caught in between the issue so dont call me pro-life or pro-choice) becuase as a society we must decide what constitutes life. Is a fetus capable of thought? I have no idea, but if it is capable of thought abortion is deffinatly murder. But what else could we deem “human life” (SEXUAL CONTENT AHEAD READ WITH CAUTION!!!!) Everytime I use a condom or masturbate i’m wasting sperm that has a chance at becoming life. Is that murder? Everytime a woman has a period she wastes precious eggs that also has a chance at becoming life,is that murder?

      But correct me if i’m wrong didnt the old testament say Eye For an Eye=Justice????
      last but certainly not least…………
      NOT ALL MUSLIMS KILL THEMSELVES FOR 72 VIRGINS, JUST THE BRAINWASHED BONKERS ONES!!!!!!! THEIR ARE PERFECTLY NORMAL MUSLIMS THAT GO TO CHURCH EVERY WEEK WITHOUT EATING BABIES OR BLOWING UP NEW YORKERS!!! HATE AL-QUEDA NOT MUSLIMS.
      Doesnt the bible teach us to be non judgmental and loving of all people, muslim or jewish? Doesnt the bible teach us that we should be getting along with each other????
      Be christ like not just christian. Practice what you preach and stop pretending all muslims are amoral demons. Because its simply not true.

    Family axes wedding plans, Egyptian cuts off penis
    By SARAH EL DEEB Associated Press Writer The Associated Press
    Sunday, May 31, 2009 5:48 PM EDTCAIRO (AP)

    — A 25-year-old Egyptian man cut off his own penis to spite his family after he was refused permission to marry a girl from a lower class family, police reported Sunday.

    After unsuccessfully petitioning his father for two years to marry the girl, the man heated up a knife and sliced off his reproductive organ, said a police official.

    The young man came from a prominent family in the southern Egyptian province of Qena, one of Egypt’s poorest and most conservative areas that is also home to the famed ancient Egyptian ruins of Luxor.

    The man was rushed to the hospital but doctors were unable to reattach the severed member, the official added citing the police report filed after the incident.

    The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with the press, added that the man was still recovering in the hospital.

    Traditionally, marriages in these conservative part of southern Egypt are between similar social classes and often within the same extended families — and are rarely for love.

    See what legalistic religions like Moslem or Islam does ……
    assuming that he was. And those religions that are not based on God’s loving spirit, but on legalism….
    Yah don’t see or hear of Protestant Christian’s going to that extreme..do yah Tyler……? by the way..have you ever heard of a war against Protestant’s ??????
    So, far I don’t know of any! The Catholics, Jews, and Moslems have been fighting for thousands of years….but not us Protestants!
    We are peaceful people! LOL

      Actually marriage originated as more of a legistic agreement between two families. Such as in ancient rome, india, and parts of egypt.
      Oh yeah and its spelled Muslim, not Moslem, thanks for proving how much you actually know about other cultures….

      And saying that protestants never do anything extreme. that was a joke right? I hope to vicious raptor jesus that was a joke.
      Ever heard of the crusades, abortion clinic bombings, when protestant britain imperialised catholic ireland, or how about the holocaust(caused by german protestants), or the american indian genocide commited by the great ol’ U.S.A.(also mainly protestant) Damn you guys are remarkably peacful….

      The reason these terrible things happen is because religion was formed by man, man has the potential to commit terrible atrocities, and those chances to do terrible things severly increase when man can justify his evils with an invisible ghost.

    Have you ever traveled across the USA? Or to another country? If so, you would see that there is plenty of room available for families to live. There are not too many people taking up too much oxygen or using too many resources to go around. At least I do not see it that way, when I have traveled. Why are farms in the USA not farmed? I would think the farmers would be farming big time this summer, but …. Why do the wealthy get paid to buy up large pieces of land and not farm it? Why have the wealthy destroyed the farmers in the USA? Again the wealthy got greedy and took the middleclass jobs away…… or why is Monsanto allowed to make (GMO seeds)/alter seeds and piglets which will kill the population evenutally, our bodies can not assimilate food made from GMO seeds!
    Why do Islams hate Christians?
    Why do they want to die to be with Virgins?
    Why do they hate Jews?
    And if God is a Spirit, and he is, and that Spirit is Love, then what Spirit is their hate coming from?
    It’s natural to propagate, its unnatural to kill their offspring.
    It’s natural to love your children and to protect them from harm, its unnatural to prepare them for a suicide death or an abortion.
    Like they are some sort of sacrifice, like cattle going to the slaughter.
    That is why I as a woman do not understand wars at all. It makes no sense, and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
    It goes against the joy of life and living. It is all about power and that alone will corrupt the minds of men, to do evil.
    Have you worked in the workforce in the past 20 years?
    Have you seen the power struggles amongst the working class with the new age human resource departments and the CEO’s over the workers? It’s not about competence anymore its about how much you can make for the company. Adultery and lack of ethics and lack of conscious rules now…….
    What religion has a conscious would you say and which do not?
    Is a conscious developed by getting to know God ? Or by being taught right from wrong by our parents? Our society?
    Can a conscious get corrupted or lied to or deceived?
    What does the Abnormal Psychology books say about those aberrations nowadays…..cuz 45 years ago I read that book and it seems like those pages must have been ripped out of the textbooks I read when I took that class in college!

      Again your talking about the Islam that has been raped by heretics. In truth the actual book of Quaran teaches peace, love, and the actual book doesnt say anything about recieving 72 virgins when you commit martyrdom(something that christians created by the way).
      The muslim movement is a lot like the christians in the crusade days. Just a bunch of people who took the word of “god” and perverted it to their best interest. And they hate Jews because they believe that isreal is rightfully theirs because they were their first.(kind of childish.)Why not talk to some muslims about their religion? why not read the quaran? why not read up on anything thats not propaganda bullshit?
      Yeah we have open space but we dont have enough resources to support every single person on this earth.

        Tyler,
        God wrote the Truth in the Bible by men anointed by the Holy Spirit. Truth is so simple, how religions came about.
        God made us to want to worship Him. Jews were the only people who had the Ark of the Covenant and worshiped an “unseen”(Spirit) True God. Wars were fought with Jews and by other peoples, who didn’t believe as the Jews did and who worshiped Idols. Jesus was God in the Flesh, to bring all races of people to God for redemption.
        God is a jealous God and will not stand for deception about who He is, and How we are put on this earth to find Him and to Seek Him and to be called His own.
        Jews are just as stubborn as Moslems or Hindu’s or Buddah’s….they do not accept Jesus as the Son of God. So, wars continue over it…Fortunately, we in the USA allow the freedom of religion in our country. You can believe the way you want to. And so can I!
        I have said for along time…being born in America, Caucasian, I cannot fathom, living in a country of just one race and one religion. But, I thank God for it, because, I would not have probably ever come to be a believer in Christ, had I been born a Moslem or a Jew or a Chinese, or a African. Not to say, many have come to know Christ in all the world, but they suffer more than we do if they do go outside their ingrained culture and find the True God.
        All false religions hate Christians, not visa versa.
        Man has created their own God’s and there are about 5000 different religions in the world.
        Money is a God also,or should I say an idol, and its spreading it’s wings worldwide now! “The love of money is the root of all evil”.
        Right now the Federal Reserve is seeing how great their “money God” is or can become! They are bringing the entire world, if they can, to bow down to the money God, which in the book of Revelations is called the “Beast” ( a third part of Satan’s Trinity)……
        Christians are not in the Dark on what is going on and we are allowing it because its not something to get upset about, we knew it would happen before God takes charge and pours out HIS Wrath upon the earth to save the Christians.
        This earth was created by God. It will be man that destroys it. Our life here is only temporary, I”m looking forward to living an eternity with God on this New Earth and New Heaven.
        So,I am just watching and waiting to see what man does next!
        While I worship The True Savior and continue to believe in the privacy of my home and heart and mind in Jesus Christ.

    Tyler:
    Sorry to anger you! I disagree with you because your wrong saying that Islam and Christianity are the same, they are very different. If you will go into the website I listed above and watch the video on “Muslim Demographics”, you will see that they are proliferating rapidly. They have 8 children per family, we have 1-2. Their plans if you listen to their leaders is be able to have the largest population worldwide within 39 years. Then they will be able to take over the world. Since the war in Iraq they have dispersed worldwide. Have you been to Europe lately? or talked to anyone who is from their? Their agenda is to have eight children, who all get married and have eight more and they have eight more…..similiar to what the catholics did to rule the world also. While our country and other countries abort 1. 5 million infants per year….which of course they do not believe in. But, that way we are destroying our own population and now we will never catch up with them, its too late to do so……and they know it…..so as our economy declines, which they do not believe in capitalism or woman being educated or working either, so as they use their woman for breeding purposes only…they will be the dominant population in 30 years or so. That way they do not have to fire a shot…It’s not especially about their religion..its about how they are going about becoming the most powerful. While we are trying to fight the Taliban in the middleast that they do not like anyway……so we are preoccupied while they are busying breeding!
    And, once they infiltrate the world, the workforce, the educational system, they will when the time is ripe, be the most powerful. They also, recruit in our prisons into Islam. That will affect our society as well.
    I just think its something to be aware of and take notice that our borders are not closed to them, as they aren’t to the illegals either….so that is what our congress thinks of us…..I have witnessed a decline in our country of American doctors and nurses inour health care system ….there again…..our own hospital corporations have ruined the job market for American doctors and nurses…..they’d rather hire foreigners I guess and pay for their families and parents to use up our social security and Medicare and Medicaid…..then blame us , the Americans, that they have to hire foreigners, to do the work.
    The same in teaching…..hoards of teachers are brought into our country to teach our children.

      When it comes to immigration I honestly dont care where your from,I just care how good you do your job.(As in getting my order right) And you talk about Islam like its some form of great evil. All of those things you just listed about Islam are very very ignorant, I suggest watching an episode of the show 30days(the one with Morgan spurlock) about this very issue. Islam has been perverted by heretics just like many sects of christianity. And you also talked about some kind of breeding…Race, I dont think you realize how dangerous this kind of thinking is. Most of my right wingy compainions dismiss any sort of environmentalism as left wing propaganda. But the truth is that America uses 50percent of the worlds resources. And if everyperson lived like an American citizen did it would take more than four earths worth of resources to support our skyrocketting population. Quite frankly we dont have enough room much room for more people(DAMN MORMANS!!!!)
      So in short…. We need to make our borders safer but not hate on our illegal companions… Realize that Islam is scarily similar to christianity… And dont start a breeding race just because muslims and chinese have huge numbers. Thank you for not getting all hot headed against my previous offensive comments.

      islam, christianity, buddhism, sikhism, judaism, hinduism, candomble, bahai, jainism, mormons, paganism, rastafari, shinto, scientology, taoism,unitarianism. It’s all the same; each religion uses meditation practices to heal the soul. Meditating is actually really good for you. Your body is made out of energy which is controlled by your brain and perception. All MRI’s take pictures of your energy using magnets…

      You reproduce trilions of cells each day. Negative thoughts can destroy and deteriorate your body making you more susceptible to diseases. The body reproduces trillions of cells a day. When you stress, blood flows into the bones of your arms and legs, which is blood that is used to reproduce your cells..

      Praying has such a positive effect on your body and mind that some people have even cured cancer by meditating and using yoga practices. You can even pray for a loved one and it would produce positive energy and can heal that person a lot faster. Watch this video, you will find it amazing.

    Why a study and perspective of Islam is necessary ….

    Muslims are increasing more than any other religious group in the world. Their growth rate is four times faster than Christians. Presently, those who practice Islam make up approximately one-fifth of the world’s population. One Bible teacher from England, after reviewing current demographics, commented that, “if present trends continue, half of all global births will be in Muslim families by the year 2055”. Something revolutionary is happening before our eyes, and most Western Christians are oblivious to it. Not only are Muslims the fastest growing religious group in the world, but also in the United States, Canada and Europe, with Europe perhaps being the model of where Canada and then the United States are heading shortly after.

    Any simple examination of the present birth rates of the native Europeans versus Europe’s Muslim immigrant population leads us to one very clear and ominous conclusion: the Europe we have known is very quickly changing into what some refer to as Eurabia, where Europe will soon find itself under the power and control of Islam. The following short clip will show you just where our world is heading from a purely demographic point of view:

    I am disgusted that our government is considering amnesty for the Illegal Immigrants who are in this country. Rewarding them for breaking our laws and draining our economy and most of all our health care. Yes, our health care. When an Illegal Immigrant (pregnant) has a child in our country, they have this child for free. When an American Citizen who is pregnant, who has no benefits because they lost their job, has a child they get a 25 thousand dollar bill! That American who paid taxes since the age of probably 15 years old should be the one who gets the break, NOT THE ILLEGAL. This country is so backwards and run by idiots! The more we stay silent, the worse it gets. If our ancestors would have stayed silent, slaves would still exist, and AMERICA would not exist today if our forefathers didn’t have the balls to fight for freedom! Think about it people. It’s just going to get worse. KICK THE ILLEGALS OUT! Good Bye, Adios! When an American Citizen does something Illegal, like ” Not Pay Taxes” the IRS/Govt. Goes after them and freezes their assets. hmmm. I don’t know about you, But I am really sick of the leaders of this country STEPPING ALL OVER THE HARD WORKING AMERICAN CITIZEN. With out us, there would be no country to begin with. remember that people! The time is now to stand up and fight for your freedoms!

    Right on, Tyler. Capitalism, or good, will always prevail! Go immigrants!

    Hey you racist people who call Mexicans illegal aliens, read something from Ayn Rand, author of Atlas Shrugged.

    gotta dissagree a little.
    If you are born here it is your home.
    Most mexican Americans(really just Americans) I know have more american spirit than any other group in america.
    If you are for capitalism you are surely for competition. Immigrants are competing for jobs just like any other Americans.

    Stop the DREAM Act: amnesty for illegals & money for their tuition.

    http://www.wam08.org/DREAMpetition.html

    Mass organized petition against the DREAM Act (lovely name, bad policy). WAM’s last petition changed 45 House votes & we’re going for more this time!

    It will increase flow of illegal immigrants. On top of that, how many of you had this type of taxpayer funding for your college tuition?

      Yes I agree. Something has to change. I myself am part hispanic but i’m a 4generation. I love my state and country very much and like for my kids some day to love it just as I do. Some say they come here for a better life. Then why is it that when they get here they try to make it like home? I call this Rape of our Great State!!!!!!!They take what they want and force their Spanish on us with bill boards,radio and t.v.. When does it stop? Can anyone answer that? When?

        I have two cousins that are half. Their father was from Mexico City, came here for a better life for his children. They only learned Spanish as a second language. No Mexican flags waving at their house.

        It was exactly what you’ve said. His children are American, not Mexican American.

        I can’t believe what is happening before my eyes. What happened to our country?

    INSTEAD OF THE TERM “ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT” I PREFER THE WORD “INVADER”.

    BUILDING A WALL ALONG OUR MEXICAN BOARDER SEEMS A RATHER WEAK AND PROBLEMATIC WAY TO STOP THE INVADERS. A BETTER METHOD IS TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

    – CREATE A 1/4MI WIDE U.S.A MILITARY BASE ALONG THE ENTIRE U.S./ MEXICAN BOARDER (AS MUCH AS FEASIBLE) AND PAY FOR IT BY SELLING THE EXISITNG UNUSED FEDERAL BASES, COLD WAR MISSLE SILOS, ETC. IN THE HINTER LAND. INVADING THE U.S.A IS ONE THING BUT INVADING A U.S. MILITARY BASE IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY!

    – MORAL: IF A PEOPLE WORK TO BUILD A SOCIETY OF SUCH QUALITY THAT THE REST OF THE WORLD WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE SAME, ALLOWED THE CHOICE, ENOUGH WILL INVADE FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD TO RUIN IT!

    For a man of the Constitution, how can you seriously before getting rid of birthright citizenship? Section 1 Amendment 14, even by the strictist constructionist textualist “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States”

    Hi,

    My name is Taylor, and I’m just trying to get my facts straight. I was recently looking at Ron Paul’s track record for voting on border patrol, and it seems like from 2001 to 2005 he was very very against it. Voting no on 4 different amendments that would improve our border patrol in different ways. I’m by no means bashing him, so don’t get me wrong. I just was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the subject.

    Thanks for your time,

    Taylor

      I would look closer at those bills. They probably had a lot of unjust spending. Could you list them.

    It’s a true pity the Iroquois Confederacy (not to mention the rest of the inhabitants of this continent) didn’t share your attitude on “ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION” in 1492!

    Hey they were Koreans to start with in the first place. So I guess that they could go back there to live in their ancestral homes.
    Also check up on some law, lets say Roman Law. Here is a hint; start with Vēnī, vīdī, vīcī and work your way up into the various Roman Laws to find out why we are, where we are, how we are.
    PS There are no such thing as Original Native Americans.

    Get your head out of the clouds and smell the coffee being roasted by those rich companies.

    The book, not the movie, Starship Troopers makes it very clear. Citizenship must be earned! Military service, no one will be turned away. Hence regardless of physical conditions you will earn your citizenship and you will appreciate it. If you don’t want to be a Citizen no problem – no vote, and you are not allowed to have certain jobs. The fascist state portrayed in the movie did not in the book.
    I do like one proposal that I saw – military service in a war zone for illegals will earn them citizenship!
    I read that book shortly after it came out, and I read it on every Submarine patrol that I made.
    I think that it is a sound idea. You want to vote, you want to have any government job, be it elected or civil? Then get off your butt, serve and earn that franchise. Hell you should do it anyway. And read the book to see what Heinlein was saying or trying to say
