The Left are not “mishandling” human nature, they are experts in capitalizing on human nature for their own personal security and power to the detriment of their own constituents and the Nation as a whole.
They have established a self perpetuating structure based on dependence;
The teachers are dependent on ever increasing school spending, so they push the Leftist propaganda.
The other Unions are dependent on constantly growing budgets as well, so they fund the campaigns of Leftists.
The Welfare rats are dependent on government spending for every essential element in their lives, so they vote for Leftists.
Illegals are dependent on the Welfare State combined with free access to our labor market with no regulations and no tax burden, so they vote for Leftists and teach their children to do the same.
The Enviro-Nazis are dependent on government funding and legislation that creates captive markets without competition, so they vote for Leftists and let themselves be used to launder taxpayer money and put it into Leftist campaign coffers.
Many large companies are dependent on government regulations that crush their competition so they fund Leftist campaigns and create do nothing “reward jobs” for the friends and family members of Leftist politicians.
Many elderly are dependent on Social Security so they vote for Leftists out of fear that not doing so would mean their personal ruin.
All of this structure is established in such a way as to self perpetuate, they need a steady influx of immigrant labor to prevent the labor markets from naturally raising the wage rates to align with the actual cost of living in each region, they know from the Reagan years that a booming economy that is short on labor causes wages to climb and government dependency to shrink; sanctuary cities and States are designed to keep personal prosperity from occurring as a result of the supply and demand realities in the labor market.
Wages stay low and taxes stay high so only subsidized labor can survive on the wage rates.
Once this is established to a large degree (like in Kalifornia) businesses lose the ability to raise wages high enough to fill labor voids, this is because they would have to raise ALL OF THEIR EMPLOYEES wages to match the new hires who refuse to go on Welfare to make up the difference.
Wages would have to double or in some cases triple to match the cost of living in most Kalifornia areas if the subsidies were removed, this is the result of unlimited subsidized immigration preventing the wage rates from naturally and gradually rising over time; to do it all at once now in order to fill the labor needs would destroy the economy overnight with massive inflation.
The Farmers were the first to make this bed and then complain about having to lie in it, sanctuary laws were supposed to help that but a lack of enforcement simply made illegals say “why work on a farm for pennies when we can work anywhere for much more money or start our own business with no regulations or taxes to worry about?”
That means you need 50 illegals to get one farm worker, anyone with any skills at all who comes here doesn’t even consider a farm job.
Farmers think raising wages all at once now (to remedy the mess they created by letting the State subsidize their labor) would devastate them, they are probably right but that’s what happens when you try to prosper by pointing a gun at the taxpayers so they will subsidize your labor costs.
The Farmers knew what they were doing and advocated for it, the destruction to all of our other markets was a sucker punch that few saw coming; probably because they bought the lie that sanctuary policies would only effect farm labor.
Turns out if you publicly declare that you won’t enforce your laws on anyone but citizens, illegals will flood into all of your labor markets and laugh at the idea of picking fruit; WHAT A SHOCK! [/sarcasm]
We cannot possibly raise immigration enough to meet the labor demand because the subsidies necessary would destroy us, we cannot remove the subsidies without abolishing Welfare for everyone as our courts have already ruled on attempts to do otherwise.
We have artificially corrupted our labor rates by removing the actual cost of living from the laborers side of the negotiation for MILLIONS of laborers that are not citizens.
Meanwhile the citizens have to both earn enough to live without the subsidies AND pay enough taxes to subsidize their own competition in the wage market, this cannot work for long and can only create dependence and poverty.
Which is the goal of the Left so they understand these things completely.j
