Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – When you import the illegal who does not support republicanism — there is not a republican who has lived under socialist despotism and some form of redistributionist existence their entire life. This is going to be their experience and it’s going to be what they think is normal. They just think the United States is a little more peaceful and less of their fellow men or man are executed or suffer bodily harm in the process. You dilute the ranks of the republicans. That’s the goal. The liberal has a different goal than the businessman. The businessman is trying to do what he can to stay alive and keep his profits where he wants them to be. That’s why he enjoys the company of the illegal, because it allows him to do so without having to hire the actual American citizen, whereas the progressive is doing it for purely self-interests.

Mike: Let’s hop into the King Dude’s wayback machine. We’re going to travel to a time when the State of Texas no longer has any fealty or any obeisance whatsoever to the general government of the rest of the United States because it has declared its independence, but it still has this glaring and what is regarded as a huge problem because they have lots of illegals in their midst. One of the ways that a country like Texas, a republic — by the way, Texas would be too large to be a republic, to maintain consistency here. A country like Texas, if it really wanted to confront the problem, it would have to eliminate all impediments to competition for the labor. It’s all about labor.
The illegal that is working in the United States is not working in rocket science. The illegal that’s working in the United States is not building mainframe computers for Cisco. If he is, he’s got a card and he was invited here, or she. The illegal that is working here is doing what your kids will not do. He’s busing the table, mowing the lawn, landscaping, doing the linen at the hotel, digging the ditch, building the house, putting the shingles on the roof. How many of you unemployed 26-year-olds have considered taking a job doing roofing? I guarantee you there is roofing work in your area. I don’t care where you live, there’s roofing work. You know who’s doing it? I can tell you it’s not you. I’ve never seen anyone that escaped an Occupy Wall Street rally laying a shingle on a roof. Have you?
If you remove the minimum wage, removed all impediment to direct competition — let’s say you removed all subsidies, too. If a kid in Texas wants to go to college, fine. You’re actually going to have to save your own money and pay your own way. There is no more grant. We don’t have any more Pell Grants. We don’t have the Texas version. No more state subsidies. The state universities are only populated by the best and brightest, and that’s because their parents are oil people and they paid to get there. The only scholarship programs are the ones that are voluntary. They’re worked and administered by private citizens. There is actual competition for the labor dollar.

In an open and free market like that, you would have American youths competing with illegal immigrant youths for the same right or for the same opportunity to work at the job. That is what is currently not happening. It’s not all just the fault of the employers, although Mr. Gruss is onto something. This is why business is not going to do anything about this. Businesspeople know that the extraordinary costs associated with hiring an actual American citizen make it unprofitable, in many labor-intensive industries, to do so. This is why we can’t compete with many other second- and third-world countries because of that. It’s not just the rules and the laws. There is also an attitudinal problem there.
By and large, most Americans today believe it is beneath them to mow their own grass, dig their own ditch, roof their own house or build their own addition. They believe it’s beneath them to garden or do any of those things. It is beneath them to take a job doing menial tasks or doing heavy or hard labor like picking asparagus, because that’s not what we do. We’re an information society now. We are an information and service economy. What our youth want to do is hang around and work five or six hours a day, what they like to call work, and spend the other part of the day tooling around on their smartphones Facebooking, Twittering, Mafia Warring, Instagraming and whatever other hell-forsaken idol misspent time you can come up with. That’s what our pursuit is. That’s what our youth’s pursuit is today.
Folks, the fault lies with us. We’re the reason why that is currently happening, and will continue to happen, until such time as it is made unpalatable. It’s made palatable now largely because why? Because we have a massive welfare state that will pay children, or make it seem like they can get paid when they’re not penalized for not working. It’s as simple as that. Don’t tell me there aren’t people out there that can do these jobs and don’t want to do these jobs because we know there are. We see them on Mike Rowe’s TV show Dirty Jobs. We see those jobs being executed. There’s a lot to talk about and a lot to do in that regard. I don’t believe we’re talking about it in the manner in which it’s going to address the problem. I don’t believe that the illegal is the total culprit here. As Andrew points out, there is an awful lot of blame to go around, and business shares that blame.
Andrew, if you put yourself in the place of the businessman, he is actually willing to risk being locked up in that jail or being fined under that law because if he gets away with it for two or three years and doesn’t have to pay the kind of labor rates he would have to pay to hire an American citizen, he’s probably made enough profit to actually withstand what it is the government is going to do to him. Don’t you think that your average legislator is fully apprised of what I just said? Don’t you think many people who make the laws know exactly what I just talked about is gospel truth?
AG: I wonder, who do you think are the people that are most ardently for kicking the illegal immigrants out of the country, and saying that they’re the cause of this, that the problem of illegal immigration is those people here illegally? The demographics of the people that are blaming the immigrants tend to be small business owners, white males. That’s just how it is. I think there’s a lot of hypocrisy that exists. If you’re not able to look within yourself and within your own community as to what’s causing the problem, I think you’re disingenuous. When a lot of the people that complain about illegal immigration have no problem with their neighbors or themselves, their small business hiring these illegals, I can’t take that argument seriously then.
Mike: They also don’t have problems with their neighbors that they know are executing and recipients of what they know to be corrupt appropriations from the general government. If we’re all apprised that this thing called the fiscal cliff is coming — and I don’t believe that it’s coming, by the way. As long as we have the Federal Reserve and they can still print money and they can buy and monetize their own debt, we’ll continue this dog and pony show until the rest of the world goes, “Dude, we can’t really do this anymore. We can’t buy 20 percent of your debt anymore because we don’t have any money either. We’ve been printing it, too, so we’re gonna have to stop.” When that happens, the correction and the crash occurs, and brother, what a correction and crash it is going to be.
To me there are a couple different issues here. You’re dealing with the legality of it. There is also a cultural issue. It is a cultural issue at work here as well. This is why the progressive enjoys seeing the importation of the illegal and fights tooth and nail for them, not so much that they can vote for them, because they don’t really care about the democracy project. They don’t care about freedom in the abstract. What they care about is, it was and has been the goal of the progressives, since they began their march at the dawn of the 20th century, it has always been their goal to undo what was done in Philadelphia 1787 and 1776. It was to undo the foothold that turned into a way of life of republicanism. It was to make an aristocracy that will never actually face voters and will always have its position for life.
The elite aristocracy will run things. They will always travel in their same groups. They will always be amongst the most wealthy. The wealth will always be concentrated there. You won’t even be able to remove it. Other people will never really have a full opportunity at it. You’ll have what we would call an oligarchical society, which we are rapidly approaching, if you’re keeping score. This is why the progressive does what he does. It is to eliminate competition. It is to eliminate anyone that could compete with them on an equal footing for the right to distribute the wealth of the country. In other words, they want themselves to be an aristocratic, elite class that is never in danger of having to lose anything or actually having to work for it. This is what drives and motivates and has driven and motivated all these movements. Ours was just a little more peaceful. Because republicanism did grab a foothold and was dominant, the only way you can undo it and establish the rule of the aristocratic class is to get rid of republicanism.
When you import the illegal who does not support republicanism — there is not a republican who has lived under socialist despotism and some form of redistributionist existence their entire life. This is going to be their experience and it’s going to be what they think is normal. They just think the United States is a little more peaceful and less of their fellow men or man are executed or suffer bodily harm in the process. You dilute the ranks of the republicans. That’s the goal. The liberal has a different goal than the businessman. The businessman is trying to do what he can to stay alive and keep his profits where he wants them to be. That’s why he enjoys the company of the illegal, because it allows him to do so without having to hire the actual American citizen, whereas the progressive is doing it for purely self-interests. I might say it is a deceitful self-interest at that. Those are the two major forces at work here. The people that are in the middle are the illegals that take the bait, and of course come here and do the work and allegedly steal the jobs. They would be stealing jobs if there was competition for them. There is no competition.
