They clapped, because they do not want to see this nation succeed.
They dont care about what the PEOPLE want.
They dont really care about terrorism, because if they did, the first thing they would have done, was secure our borders.
this DOES apply to Republicans
If these people really cared about our Nation and its people, then they would show how much they care by protecting what we call home.

They always clap when foreign leaders visit. VP of China was in the US in 2002. Does that mean the Republicans want to make the US communist?

What about our own homes? What about our own rights? Why should an american citizen have to present his passport to walk to the grocery store? Or to take his kids to park? Why should an american citizen be under threat to carry papers with him day and day out to prove himself in a country he/she may verywell have been born in? Day in and day out american citizens will be harassed over the basis of citizenship and that to me is not right, neither does it appear to solve the situation. To me it just creates further division.
Words are just an instrument. Be they used as a sword or a plowshare, they in no way are ever wrong, if they come from the heart. As the sword in defense or the plowshare in giving.
It seems that some are awakening and to those I say, knowledge is power. Knowledge has to be given freely with no encumbrances.
In the beginning of the thread I wanted to address the issue of borders of a country. These could include the borders placed upon us the citizenry. The ones that seem to be getting closer and more oppressive whereby the borders of our country seem to be ever expanding.
As I addressed in another thread, what is the purpose of the US military? If not to protect the US? One would argue than that it's purpose is to enforce the will of the government, that wields it.
With a government, that the citizenry believes by the ration of 4 to 1, that it is out of control. It does not abide by our wishes, it does not abide by it's very own laws. It attempts to enforce it's will upon the world.
That is not an American ideal.
You cannot bring a horse to water as you cannot force people to be free.
It is an abomination.
United States of America has borders, they are DEFINED in the US Constitution! They are not physical, they are metaphysical.
They have been ripped apart and thrown to the furthest reaches of the world and have become abhorrent to those who truly cherish the borders of this once great nation of ideals and ideas.
Enforce our borders, the physical and the metaphysical. For they are truth, justice and the American DREAM.

I dont think you are understanding the issue correctly. This isnt some kind of fascist law,
in fact it has been federal law for a long time and it simply has not been enforced.
What this law does is allow police officers to ask for proof of residence if you have no driver's license or any proof of citizenship and do not speak english.
