WALLS, Fences and Barriers
Um, read this before… yep, since 1994
I’m getting a little tired of all the border wall and illegal immigrants/emigration rhetoric.
So I’m putting in my two bits.
Remember folks. No matter where you stand on the border wall or illegal immigration, you have to remember a keyword.
That word is “illegal”.
Many other countries have barriers, but more important, they also have “laws, rules, requirements, to “legally” enter their country.
What is wrong with wanting to have people enter a country through the proper and legal channels?
Let me know when you have that answer.
Regardless where you stand. If you do a little research then you would find out stuff like,
America has pretty much had some form of border barrier since 1994.
(Side note) –> This doesn’t make Any person a racist or prejudiced at all.
It just isn’t. (I really don’t have an opinion about the wall/barrier because I really don’t know the first thing about leading a country let alone how to artfully protect it! So, that’s why I trust God first, and then, I guess the leaders of our country 😊)
Where we stand on anything that concerns this country, whether it’s border security or education, (man we could use some real supporters of educating our children), doesn’t make a person anything.
It simply means that two or more people do not agree on a particular issue or issues concerning America on whatever subject or topic at hand.
America has leaders that we the people have voted into whatever position of government leadership it is.
I’m talking about the folks on Capitol Hill that pass all them bills, (yes, like the cartoon song 😂😊)
We are to support our leaders no matter who they are, or how they decide to run this great country. (to a point of course) They are the ones who aren’t supposed to act like children, they are supposed to be our LEADERS, for the people’s best interest and short of treason or tyranny, then the people should at least be respectful to a president, senators, representatives. ..our government.
Between the media and politicians, well, they have divided the American people and now we see terrible arguments and railing, name calling, and basically child like performances.
What happened to the “United” in United States of America?
Because it seems, whether it’s a , border wall/fence/barrier…security or taxes, or constitutional rights and so forth, it does not matter the subject and while I certainly am no expert by any means, but I am pretty sure of this, our past American government leaders,… our past leaders.., of America.., most certainly did not agree on everything and a great country was still made and built.
Folks this world isn’t getting rid of “bad guys” any time soon.
So when it comes to securing our country from bad people, whether a terrorist, or drug smugglers, human trafficking and who knows what else, I guess a wall, new or improvements on existing “fences”, sounds like a good idea if at the very least it will diminish these lawless people from carrying out whatever plans they may have.
Besides that, I would have a hard time believing that EVERY person entering this country, illegally, plans on being a law abiding citizen.
I believe this wall thing is for the betterment of America and improving the safety of our citizens then I say, do it. If it helps keep drugs alone out, or at least decrease the amounts, then I definitely say that alone is reason to have or improve border security with a wall or whatever you are calling it.
Remember, miles and miles already exist, so lighten up.
God bless America folks.
