A question occurred to me yesterday and I thought I would share it. Maybe you could help me with it.
Assume the border is perfectly sealed so that no one could get in illegally. Now, an offer is made to a person. He could become a legal citizen of the US on one condition. He must first spend a year in prison.
Just how many would accept the offer? How many would take the offer if it were two years or three and so forth. How many years in prison is citizenship worth?
Then, let’s turn the question around. How many would leave the US permanently if he were offered a million dollars, or two million…or three.
Maybe, given all her faults, the US of A isn’t all that bad after all. Maybe those who like to complain about her should shut their mouths and enjoy what they have. Maybe you could let me know what you think.
