Ironic that you would bring up Starship Troopers. A satire of right-wing militarism.

Why else would you employ a force that is trained to shoot first and ask questions later? The National Guard and Border Patrol can handle a group of 1500. The only reason to deploy the military is if you want them to shoot anyone that crosses the border.

As others have stated on this thread they're "defending us from foreign invaders."

Who is trained to shoot first and ask questions later ? Sure if the other person is holding a weapon . If you are dead , you cant ask questions later , now can you ?
You can always deploy the military as a deterrent. Been the case since the beginning of time
Defending the country from foreign aggression (invasion) ? Yes , this could be construed as such.
All your talking points successfully riposted
And , by the way, you are starting to become repetitive.

They do have a say in our economic well-being however. Economic sanctions wrecked Russia's economy and they can do the same to us.


We don't kill people by the thousands or millions and don't send people to death/work camps for breaking an obscure law. The United States isn't like North Korea or China or Iran or Iraq.

We aren't going to start killing people en mass.

Securing our border from a group of 1500 foreign nationals that have made demands of our government is a bad thing?

Do I think this is ridiculous? Yes I do.
Do I think the potus has the powers to do this legally? Yes I do.
Do I think congress should get off their asses and fix our immigration system? Yes I do.

Hmm. According to Robert A. Heinlein in the book Starship Troopers , it was indeed left-wing Socialism.
And , in the movie , notice the arm bands ? You didnt , did you ?

Yeah, I knew someone was going to defer the Starship Troopers comment to a right wing mantra reply. For your information the 82nd Airborne is the primary rapid deployment force in the USA tasked with being able to deploy to anywhere on the face of the earth within 24 hours.


You clearly missed the point I was trying to make and haven't seen troops in action before mobilizing en mass. How you linked it to a right wing idea is beyond me.

I don't understand how anyone can support trump at this point. He has revealed himself to be a fool through impulsive twitter comments. He could be doing so much good with his GIANT audience and openness, yet he doesn't.

If only trump had the wisdom and knowledge to go along with his unfiltered bold personality.

Neither of those conditions have been met. Nobody is being deprived of their rights, privileges, immunities, or protections. And no one is obstructing the execution of the law. People in the states most affected by illegal immigration are still operating as any other US citizen and the courts are still running.


Can we get a copy of your lawsuit ?

We all can't have the perfect ideal person for POTUS. I hope there is some credit behind this statement other than fluff. I am prepared to be disappointed if/when this becomes nothing more than posturing.

To be honest with ya brah, I just think you are getting agitated and po'd because something is happening and people are getting their rocks off who are prevented from speaking out due to being called something they are not?

Honestly dude, if you and I went out and had a few brews and a blunt, I wouldn't be the Hitler you think I am! Cheer up mate!

We in Germany know what happens if the military is send to protect a wall that gets built:


What you guys over there forget is that a wall is designed to keep people out as it is designed to keep people in!


So how many Americans have run to Mexico lately ?

Grasping at straws eh? So you're saying the US Government wants to wall in its own citizens into a giant country-sized ghetto?! Say it aint so! OMG.


That argument has no legs to stand on.



Yeah, because it never happened in history before, nowhere.


The people in the later GDR never believed that a wall will be built, to keep them in, before it really happened.
And do you trust your actual and any coming government that much?
If i see how scared many of the "U"S citizens are that the government will come for their guns, then i don´t think there is that much trust in the governments over there.

So we're forced to pick the lesser of two evils? A idiot president over corporate owned inactive politicians?
There's got to be a better way than always choosing between two evils..



There IS !!

Move to Mexico or Honduras !!

MS13 will welcome you !!

Waco wasn't the military. It was the FBI. That was the whole point. The FBI were working within their legally proscribed duties. And yet people still bring up that instance as an example of blatant federal overreach.

But somehow the military being deployed on US soil, despite it being something the Founding Fathers wanted to avoid, is a good thing. It's absolutely ridiculous.


You know 100% for sure it was all FBI ?

MSM fables abound !!

Been a while since I read the book, but the movie is very much a satire on militarism. I don't know if Verhoeven ever actually confirmed it, but it's the running consensus with most film critics. Also, when you consider his most famous film, Robocop, it's clear that he has a penchant for hiding some very Left WIng positions behind mindless action movies.
