Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Do normal people react to situations that call for immediate action by denying that there is a problem that needs to be solved? All the people and government agencies, that are responsible for our national security and our “broken” immigration policy, agree that we need a border wall, where practicable, to deter the invasion of immigrants across our porous border; to prevent the transport of illegal drugs destined to our communities across the country; and the inhuman trafficking of young boys and girls, but we have an obstinate group of politicians (the Democrats) who, because of their innate animus and hatred toward President Trump, refuse to vote to allocate money to build that much needed wall.
Do they really think that putting party above of what is right for the country, the right thing to do?
All right, we know that Democrats didn't like the outcome of the last presidential election, but to take out their angst against the best interests of their country, is the height of insanity.
The U.S. Border Patrol, I.C.E., and the Office of Homeland Security, all claim that building the wall would be a great deterrent against all those illegal activities mentioned above. Those are the professional voices that our feckless politicians should heed, not the bleeding-heart lefty loons that make up the base of the Democrat Party.
The funny thing is (really not so funny), that many of those Democrats who refuse to vote for the money requested by the president to build the wall, previously have voted for a wall before President Trump was elected. What has changed their minds? Would it be partisan politics and Trump hatred that motivates their actions by refusing to give President Trump a “win” on one of his signature promises he made during his campaign for president?
That's where insidious insanity comes into play, as you can't seem to reason with these ingrates pretending to do the country's business. They all claim that they believe in border security, but offer, when asked, nothing but empty platitudes and vague solutions to meet this
massive problem which challenges our national security. Without an enforceable border, we really don't have a country, just a way station for illegals to take advantage our good nature and generous welfare programs. When is enough, enough? The drain on our economy is real and cannot be economically sustained. It is estimated that it costs the U.S. approximately $138 billion a year to take care of the illegal aliens who contribute approximately $19 billion in government revenue in the form of taxes. Much of the money generated by the illegal aliens is earned “off the books” (non-taxable), and much of the money earned is sent back to their home countries and not spent here. President Trump's priority is to protect the citizens of our country, but he is thrown one roadblock after another by the Democrats who look upon these illegal immigrants as potential Democrat voters in the future.
This insidious insanity must end for the sake of our citizens and our country, otherwise we will be a democratic republic with a third world mentality. Do we really want to emulate another Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua?
