if the U.S. is such a disaster, why do millions of people endure so much to come here? Why is there no mass exodus out of this supposed hell-hole? Why do we put up border patrols to keep Mexicans out, but there isn't a single Mexican guard trying to keep out Americans? Why are there no boat people trying to get out of Florida into the glorious Cuban socialist paradise? Why do Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe have no immigration problems from U.S. citizens? In short, why do socialist countries never have to take steps to stem the tide of immigration, but invariably need to build walls to keep people in, whereas capitalist countries have the opposite problem? Why, in short, do millions of people vote with their feet in support of my position and against yours every single day of the year?

We have oceans on both sides of us, and yet I can't recall a single instance of people taking to rafts to leave the shores of this abominable nation, whereas we have been the recipients of such departures elsewhere many times in our history? I wonder why this is, Anitah, and look forward to your explanation.
