It's already difficult for someone skilled to get in. Choking the immigration system even more is going to make it harder for legal immigrants to get through.

It matters quite a lot. You need clear labels for crime in order safeguard justice and protect the innocent. You don't put people on trial for being bad people, you put people on trial for tangible transgression. To do anything else is an express flight to despotism. Again, I am not a criminologist...

I'd recommend pro-abortionists to just accept that fetuses are babies. Because semantics doesn't matter. There's a million stronger arguments for why abortion should be kept as a legal option. I've rarely met a pro-lifer who will defend carrying to term when it's rape or when the mother is in danger...

That doesn't make that statement a fact. Most 9/11 'truthers' believe 9/11 was a hoax. That doesn't mean 9/11 was a hoax. I never claimed it as a fact. It is my perspective as a communist. You're a critical realist huh? How'd you managed to lump "most communists" when there's about 1 bill...

Eh, why do you think capitalists deserve to die? They are human, just like you and me. I would oppose capital punishment for even the most heinous of individuals.

I know this may come as a shock, but Donald Trump may have lied about helping out after Sept 11. It's hard to know for sure, but no one seems to remember him being involved and we can't find any records of it. Then again, Donald is so humble and low key, maybe he just didn't tell anyone it was him....

Yes, I'm Afrikaans if that has to do with anything. Also, white Afrikaans people are not "white Dutch" as you stated. It's even considered a slur to call a white Saffie a "Dutchman". So don't confuse the two. Having a few ancestors that were from Holland perhaps three hundred ye...

The real danger is that Trump would have an opportunity to pick Supreme Court justices. The Supreme Court is an integral part of our system of checks and balances, and if Trump elects a bunch of loons to the Supreme Court, that would be extremely dangerous to the country.
