The President, and his fairly tame Congress, are not doing their jobs. Too true. That's why, in November, we need to replace his tame Congress with
our Congress. One that, if we're vigilant, will service our real needs, not the ones that Mr. Obama, and others, think we need. That's the first
step in solving the problem.
The second step is addressing the uses to which illegal immigrants are put to in this country. All too many of them work for slave wages, and those
that hire them profit by it...un-American to say the least. Grave punishment should be meted out to those who hire illegal knowingly...jail, fines,
loss of profits accrued by the use of illegals. Make it bloody flippin' dangerous to hire illegals and it'll stop. No jobs for them, they'll stop
coming. That coupled with controlling the borders will go a long ways towards solving both the illegal immigrant issue, and the cartel issue.
The laws to do this are already in the books. Enforcement is the problem. Forcing our elected officials to do so is the third and final step. That
requires that we get off our complacent little hineys and actually become involved in the fate of our nation...
...and no recourse to vigilantism required. Save the legal sort. At the ballot box.
Sadly, this has been the platform of many of the current people in office, many of them make mention of "makeing immigration reform" one of their
top items. and non of it comes to fruition.
So here's my dilemma with such.. How do you know if they will actually do as they say..
Poloticians are notorious for touting what we want to hear during the pre-election time for their campaigns, and then once elected, sitting on their
duff living a cushy life.
I won't even go into the CT of the legitimacey of Elections, and the possibility of them being rigged regardless of how the votes fall.
But I think we are being hood-winked.
I also do not advocate the killing of innocents, women and children are a deffeint NO!
I do, however, advocate protecting innocents with deadly force, should people run across a such sitations where innocents are being in direct harm.
And there are laws that provide ofr such things.
Conceal and carry is also another way of protection. But on the down side, if you have a handful of guys come after you, might be ruff to defend
your family from them.
Sadly that is part of the problem occuring. "bands" of thugs killing our legal US Citizens, be it black, white, brown, yellow, or heliatrope.
Then there is the other side of letting the legal system get a hold of the ones doing the killing.. Ever consider that someone in these situations,
killing someon and such, they have no care for how they end.. rotting in prison, or having 50,000 volts course through their bodies. the average
lifespan of a drug-cartel member is lmited. so usually they don't worry about it, and do as they wish. So prison isn't really an effective
solution to the problem.
We, as Americans, have become soft to the horros the rest of the world face every day. Our Utopian ideas do not fit very well amidst such chaos and
disaster, and wonton holesale murders. Sometimes Force must be met with Force.
Sadly, we must pull up our boot-straps, and accept that not everything can be peaceful with a greedy, malevolent humanity.
