@15, incase you're genuine in your inquiry, here's one take: Supply and demand. Americans demand cheapest prices possible for food, travel, general labor, etc. Business owners have a choice: pay the legal minimum wage for documented/domestic labor, or pay less than minimum wage for undocumented labor. Meanwhile, less than minimum wage in the US is still more than what people will get in the 'native' country. So the "illegal immigration" problem is really a problem of what Americans are willing to pay for basic labor.
I ask you this, if you were paid ten times more for the same job in Canada, would you move their, no matter what? What about 100 times more? At what point do you say it's worth the risk? What if there's a drug war down your block? Does this help?

War Tax Resisters conscientiously object to their tax money being spent on the military, and refuse to pay federal income tax. There are many ways to do this, but one is to donate the equivalent of their federal taxes to a more worthy, peaceful organization. Maybe we should consider starting "Trump Tax Resisters": instead of paying federal taxes, people pay the equivalent of their federal taxes to local government instead. In short, if Trump wants to fight cities for not going along with his asshole, dictatorial agenda, there are ways to fight back.

So, the stranger's hatred for Stein and the Greens is so myopic, you're siding with Trump against her?

Way to go stranger! Belittling, lecturing and shaming people for their different opinions is always the best way to get people to change their minds! Keep up the good work and the tyranny of the spoilers Green Party will soon be crushed and the flawless Democrats will triumph victoriously over their rotting carcas!

Holy shit, isn't Jeb's wife originally from Mexico? And G. P. Bush is half Mexican?? So he's not just a Republican supporting Trump, he's not just a Bush supporting Trump, he's a half-Mexican Republican Bush supporting Trump. Shit, put him in a glass jar for being an amazing one-of-a-kind species.

Can you point to another third party candidate you supported aside from Sawant?
Cause I know nearly all the Greens who've run locally since 2000 and it's safe to say you didn't support a single one, even in 'safe' races.

And, as @4 said, do you think insulting people will actually change their minds? Let me rephrase that: has insulting anyone EVER changed their mind?
Jul 19, 2016 Lose-Lose commented on Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No..
Dan, I've been hearin you go on the Se anti-3rd party rant now for SIXTEEN FUCKING YEARS and I'm sick of it! Yet again, stick to sex. What makes it worse is that you're flat out wrong and you should know it! If there's one thing that unites Dems and Reps is maintaining the two party system. In your own state of Washington the two parties united to kill third parties with the top two primary system. So maybe instead of insulting people who want an alternative to D/Rs and run for dog catcher as a Green, you can use your bully pulpit to push for a electoral system that even allows third parties at the local level.

Glad you didn't mention anything about the old turf (which was "first created by Monsanto") is now linked to cancer, and the new stuff carcinogen free, cause that wouldn't be noteworthy at all.

"How you respond to adversity defines who you are as a person".
So, what kind of person are you? Some one who grows and learns from a relationship no matter what, or someone who gets angry and vengeful when it doesn't work out?

I really hope you were able to reach out from his monitor and slap him across the face.
