Representation Without Taxation

More Mexican migrants speak no Spanish : AP - Mon Sep 18, 2:48 AM ET

WOODBURN, Ore. - Inching along the dusty field under a broiling sun, Simon Santol tossed garlic bulbs into buckets and chatted with the other stooped-over Mexican workers. The conversation wasn't in Spanish.

Instead, they spoke Santol's native Triqui, or Mixtec, Zapotec or other languages indigenous to the poorest regions of Mexico. Many of the workers can barely get by in English or Spanish.

Great. Just what we need. More illegals coming up here from even deeper in Mexico, talking shit NO ONE can understand.
But since we're the U.S., I'm sure we'll be doing our best to accommodate them.

Now on to the title of the post. Of course we're all (except illegal immigrants) familiar the phrase "No taxation without representation". Back in the day, a bunch of people got pissed that they had to pay taxes to the government just so the government had income. It's not like the government actually did anything for the people, more like did something TO them if they didn't pay up.
So what did these people do about it? They started a new government "By the People, For the People". The idea was that the government would get paid to run the country the most beneficial way for the citizens who lived in that country.

Fast forward a couple hundred years or so. We now have a country where everyone is represented. Even if they don't pay taxes. They don't contribute contribute to society in any way at all, but yet they have all the benefits citizens who do contribute have. They're milking this system the rest of us pay into. After all, why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?

Until people start realizing that a fair chunk of their paycheck goes to pay for schools, hospital care, law enforcement and so on for people who take money home without paying their fair share back into the system, they will continue to get away with it.
And I'm not just talking about illegals here, the same goes for welfare reliant baby-makers who have no desire at all to do anything with their lives.

In the mean time, build the damn wall already. That would be a start.
