HOW DEMOCRAT POLICIES HURT IMMIGRANTS, MINORITIES, AND THE POOR

For the past 75 years the Democrat Party has promoted itself as being for the poor, African-Americans, and the “little guy.”  Today’s modern Democrat Party is now the self-avowed champion of illegal immigrants.  I contend that it has and is actually hurting illegal immigrants, the poor and African-Americans and is no friend to these groups.  This is how it is doing this:

  1. Because illegal immigrants will work for lower wages, they push down the wages that employers pay to their other workers, many of whom are legal immigrants, unskilled workers and poor.
  2. Through Democrat propaganda that says that African-Americans are continually discriminated against today, many believe that they are victims and buy into the victimhood mentality and adopt defeatist attitudes and don’t even attempt to excel and achieve the “American dream” because they believe it’s useless.
  3. About 30% of female migrants traveling north to cross the U.S.’ southern border are raped along their journey, so encouraging illegal immigration hurts many women.
  4. Mexican cartels use illegal immigrants crossing he U.S. border to distract Border Patrol agents so that they can smuggle illegal drugs into the U.S. much easier, so open borders is very harmful to Americans.
  5. Human taffickng is rampant through the southern border and is facilitated by the cartels.
  6. When its advocacy of a $15/hour minimum wage is adopted, like in Seattle, many “starter” and beginning-wage jobs are eliminated (like in Seattle), thus removing the first step of career ladders that unskilled workers need to join the workforce.
  7. The Democrat policy to outlaw guns denies law-abiding poor and minorities the capability to defend themselves from criminals with guns, which is especially important to them because crime is usually high in their neighborhoods.
  8. Democrat advocacy and funding of Planned Parenthood, whose clinics are mostly located in Black neighborhoods,  support abortions in line with the Eugenics movement promulgated by its founder Margaret Sanger.
  9. The Democrat Party encourages and advocates dependency on government as one of its major methods of recruiting and retaining its voter base.
  10. The Democrat Party believes that “the ends justify the means” and its Democrat Presidents consequently have done many illegal acts such as using the IRS and Justice Department to combat its enemies (see Mark Levin’s 2019 book, Unfreedom of the Press).  This sometimes results in their being impoverished, like general Michael Flynn.
  11. Democrat leadership in all cities where they govern have inner cities, mostly of minorities, that are crime-ridden, dilapidated, and impoverished.  This is a direct result of Democrat policies of Open Borders, Sanctuary Cities, easy-on-crime, banning guns, high taxes, not supporting local police, rent control, etc., etc..

The Democrat Party has targeted minorities, illegal immigrants, and the poor.  However, their policies have actually significantly hurt them.  Once these targeted groups understand this, there should be a backlash.

USE THE IRS TO HELP YOU SAVE MONEY: REFUNDS

If you have difficulty saving money, you can use the IRS to help you save.  How?  That’s what this post explains.

I have a problem saving money…money burns a hole in my pocket.  But this weakness of mine has not hurt me because I use a simple technique to save money despite my weakness.  Very simply, I have the IRS withhold much more money than I estimate I’ll owe in taxes.

Most financial planners advise against my method for saving.  Their opinion is that you don’t want to have the government hold onto your money when you could be earning interest on that money.  However, in the days of 1 % interest rates, plus my being most likely to waste and not save any extra money from my paycheck/pension, that argument does not make sense.

The strongest argument for having the government help you save is the following:  the Federal government takes money from paychecks before you see it.  Many people have great difficulty saving and would therefore save nothing without the government withholding money from pay.  In other words, 5% interest on 0 savings is 0. ..and that’s what I and many others would have saved without government withholding, 0.

With the tax refund I receive each year from the IRS I pay off credit card debt or do something else requiring a chunk of money.  But, of course, you can use your refund for anything you like:  a vacation, home improvements, auto repair, etc.

I’ve used the IRS to help me save money for years, and  I found that it works very well. The only qualifier, however, is that with today’s rampant ID fraud, there is a slight possibly that someone else may receive your tax refund. Try doing it this year and see the results for yourself.
