All illegal aliens should leave the planet!

When people say they don't want people to enter the USA illegally, do they really don't know that the only way to actually enter and apply for citizenship is to physically cross the border and fill out the required paperwork?

For people from countries like Norway and Canada immigration seems a whole lot easier than for people who are from Honduras or Mexico. I wonder why that is.

And why do some think building a wall across the Mexican border prevent Mexicans to take a plane flight to Canada and simply cross the border there?

And who will pluck the American tomatoes if all underpaid Mexicans have returned to mexico?

What if the native Americans had strict immigration laws? Would the country now be run by Chief Sitting Bull VII? And would people complain about the government being so harsh on those poor white Europeans who simply want to have a better life for themselves across the ocean after their harvest failed in Ireland, there was a big flood in The Netherlands or they are Jews trying to get away from Hitler?

All who entered America before 1875 were welcome and could simply enter without much hassle. After that, immigration laws where put into place. Because those who got there first wanted to keep everything they stole from the natives to themselves and their families.

How are opinions formed?

In the old days people simply believed what their parents believed. They were always right and you had no reason to doubt them. Then people started going to school and got confronted with teachers who told them that what their parents knew to be true wasn't true at all. Some started to think for themselves, read a lot, asked different people for different opinions in order to form their own. But most just stumbled through life feeling really confused.

Then newspapers appeared and thousands of opinions on thousands of subjects were printed. Hooray! Now you could close your eyes, open a paper with headlines that sounded nice, point you index finger at an article and claim that was your opinion too. With arguments and all! If someone asked how you formed your opinion you could simply tell them they were stupid for not having read the same article. No need to explain yourself.

And then someone invented the internet. Suddenly you could pick an opinion from social media and claim it as your own! Without anyone wondering how all of a sudden thousands of people at the exact same point in time thought 'for themselves' there was a pizza place in America with a basement from where a public figure ran a pedophile ring.

So, how do you form your opinions?

Go back!

When people complained about how things were in the country they were living in, their rulers told them: 'If you don't like it, just go back to where you came from!' If they had complied, there would not be a United States of America. Had they not told King George they didn't like the way he ruled the country, the USA would today have a queen in stead of a president. It would be a monarchy and not a democracy. But maybe that's what the Donald wants? To be King in stead of President?

But it is what Donald Trump said: 'If you don't like it here, go back to where you came from!' That could prove to be a bit difficult as his own ancestors are from Germany and Scotland. If he is serious about the fact that people who don't like America should leave, where will he go?

Does the Bible state gay people should be punished?

According to hateful Christians (no, of course not all Christians are hateful people!) God destroyed Sodom because a lot of the inhabitants were 'sodomites'. I.e. gay people. Men and women sexually attracted to people of the same sex. Apperently a sin. But that's actually not what the Bible (look it up. It's in Ezekiel) states. Ironically Sodom was destroyed because the people had turned their backs on the weak and needy. So there. More here (click) if you don't believe me.

And here's a statement on gay people made by 'God' himself

Not everyone who calls themselves a Christian (calling yourself a Christian and going to church does not automatically make you a Christian. Just like calling yourself a Volvo and standing in a garage does not make you a car.) follows the teachings of Jesus. For those who find it hard to read sentences that contain more than three words, here's Jesus Himself explaining His teachings in a single picture:
