A good example of why popular doesn't necessarily equate to good or right. Inequality is certainly an issue in the states and higher taxes for the rich sounds right to the masses when it comes to curbing that inequality, therefore it becomes a no brainer for many politicians. There is however a certain curve when it comes to taxes and an increase in revenue and i don't believe for a second that they have looked at that.
More taxes on the taxpayer will surely solve the inequality this time..
I don't really see how that is doing anything remotely close to being a cuck.
What idiots like that historian don't get is that the very rich are completely in favour of immigration because it lowers the cost of labor.
If you look at the cato institute, they are more libertarian than the position that the historian is saying. You can be against high taxes and for immigration.
This is the messiah of all things good in the world telling everyone this.
What the situation is more like is this:
Democrats support illegal immigration from the southern border because brown people South America are very likely to be Democrat voters(or at least their children are) .
If a caravan of white South Africans were queuing on the southern border, you would see that wall go up quicker than a pedophile at a preschool.
Your mainstream big business Republicans support illegal immigration because it lowers wages.
Trump, and to a lesser extent Carlson, take the position of low taxes and reduced immigration to boost wages.
The historian also doesn't look at the history at the time leading up to the 1950s and 60s. Namely the fact that most of the world's industrialised countries were wrecked by WW2. The US had a complete monopoly on the world's industrial production for the period after WW2.
Our historian also isn't very good at politics. He wanted the US to use its power to get rid of tax havens around the world. What does he mean by this? The US should invade Panama? Put its nuclear aircraft carriers outside the Netherlands? Embargo Ireland?
