Opening the Border While Expanding the Welfare State

One thing all reasonable people can agree on is Milton Friedman’s observation that you cannot have both open borders and a welfare state — at least, not for long. The Third World has an infinite capacity to generate more mouths to feed. We taxpayers do not have an infinite capacity to shovel money into the maw of Big Government.

Opening the borders while expanding the welfare state is like playing Russian roulette with all six chambers loaded, except that it is not suicide, but genocide, which Merriam-Webster defines as “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group.” Democrats are combining open borders with welfare to kill off the American people by washing us away in an unending tsunami of grasping foreigners while collapsing our system of government under mountains of unsustainable debt.

As Jason Riley observes,

Biden’s plans to expand the welfare state are the most ambitious since LBJ’s, though one significant difference is that Democrats today are borrowing money to fund it, and simply crossing their fingers that interest rates don’t rise. Another concern is the left’s determination to sever any connection between work and benefits, something all the more worrisome since it is occurring while destitute foreign nationals with little education are being lured here en masse.

In the past, people have come to America to work. Democrats will change this. Their immigration policy filters out the law abiding in favor of people who sneak into the country on an illegitimate basis. Their ever-expanding welfare state will make low-wage work illogical.

The government used to be run by people who meant the country well. No longer:

The first major piece of immigration legislation, passed in 1882, prohibited entry “to any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge,” and a similar stipulation was included in a 1930 executive order signed by President Herbert Hoover. Earlier this month, the Biden administration quietly announced that it would no longer enforce a policy that limited the admission of immigrants who were deemed likely to become overly dependent on government benefits.

Just as a crooked business keeps two sets of books, Democrats have two separate moralities. According to their public morality, political correctness (a.k.a. cultural Marxism, critical race theory), it is the epitome of moral virtue to confiscate from wealthy white people so as to bestow upon poor people with darker skin. According to their actual morality, anything that makes them more powerful is good. Both moralities justify what they are doing to our country.

Biden and his handlers would rather rule ruins than govern a thriving America, where they would risk having to share power with the opposing party.

Vidkun Quisling was as a traitor for allowing the Nazis to occupy his country rather than put up a fight. But you could understand his reasoning. Norway would lose anyway; many Norwegians would be killed. The Nazis only wanted to rule Norway, not collapse Norwegian society into squalid poverty and displace the population. Compared to Biden and his handlers, Quisling was a patriot.
