What’s Good for the Goose… by RoseAnn Salanitri
“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” is an old saying that has been repeated throughout the ages. It is a saying that objects to the elitisms we are suffering today when we have one set of laws for an elite group of people and another set for the rest of us. Our Founders did their best to indemnify us against such elitism when they wrote the powers of the Constitution extending to the “general” population as opposed to a special group of peoples. But our Founders weren’t the first to realize and try to protect against such cast-like propensities. The Bible speaks against it as well in James 2:1-4 and in Acts 10:34. These verses make it clear that God is NOT a respecter of persons. In other words, God does not favor the rich over the poor or any group of people over another. If only that were true in these United States today where people like Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden walk the streets free while the January 6th protestors linger in jail and people like Mike Lindell are coerced by the FBI. However they are not the point of this writing.
The point of this writing is to highlight the actions of so-called Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary States that condemned and refused to acknowledge the hardships placed on Texas, Florida, and Arizona (hereinafter referred to as goose states). These states have born the burden of the influx of an incalculable number of illegal aliens while other states criticize and condemn their plea for relief. It may have been considered fashionable and politically correct of those only mildly affected to turn their heads away from the goose states – until the ingenious actions of the Governors of Florida and Texas are forcing them to face what they have been sweeping under the rug. As of the time of this writing, the Mayor of New York City is declaring a state of emergency for the arrival of just a small percentage of illegals that the goose states have had to deal with. Apparently, what was good for the goose states is now a hardship for the gander of New York City – not to mention the smug elitists in Martha’s Vineyard. If indeed NYC receives funds for their declared state of emergency, then how much more are the goose states entitled to receive? The Mayor of NYC can do his best to whitewash the status of these illegals by calling them “asylum seekers” – as is the left’s attempt to whitewash the murder of children within the womb by calling them “fetuses” – but they are illegals just as fetuses are babies. Calling these lawbreakers asylum seekers doesn’t excuse the fact that they did not enter the country through the established asylum seekers channels. They entered illegally.
If you think that the conditions of their country justifies them breaking our laws, let me ask you this: if a child needs a new pair of shoes or something more fundamental, like food, are the parents justified if they go to their local stores and take what they need off the shelves? Of course we are a compassionate people and as such, have constructed means for feeding and caring for those that cannot feed or care for themselves. In an age gone by we used to call it “charity” – not “entitlements.” Regardless of your terminology or political leaning, you should not be supporting lawlessness. Understand that supporting illegalities makes you an accomplish.
