I read daily where people are illegally walking across our border. They hail from various places, all walks of life. I understand folks wanting to better their lives, as everyone should have an equal opportunity to achieve such. It needs to be done according to the rules.
Legal means do exist for entering the United States. Millions of immigrants chose that route during the last 200 years. They filled out the paperwork, marked appropriate boxes, and over time, became legal residents. Becoming a U.S. citizen isn’t akin to picking up a burger at a fast-food joint, yet some now think it is.
What I don’t understand is this: Why are government officials allowing this to go on, yet the rest of us are held to the laws of the country. One party in particular appears to be behind it all. Do they condone illegal acts merely for a vote at the next election? It appears that way. I call this cheating.
If Sarah was running for sixth grade class president, and wanted to easily win votes, she’d offer up free cookies in exchange for ballots. The word for this is bribery. Of course, cookies aren’t free as someone has to pay for them, and it wouldn’t be her. Sarah has no job nor allowance.
Someone is also having to front the bill for illegals flocking across the border. Food, clothing, cellphones, lodging, medical help, doesn’t come from gardens. Working stiff taxpayers are footing the bill here, and they have no choice in the matter, at least where Democrat politicians are concerned. I use the term Democrat loosely, because this isn’t the same Democrat party of fifty-years ago. They’ve shifted 100% to socialism where platform is concerned.
There’s nothing I can do to stop this madness other than vote for politicians opposing such. Regardless, it will cease on its own somewhere down the line. A cookie jar doesn’t stay full forever and money doesn’t grow on trees.
Ultimately, if allowed to go unchecked, the Democrat party will be successful in dragging us down to the level of those countries that people fled. Venezuela comes to mind here. A scary thought.
To quote successful television entrepreneur, Phil Swift,
“Now that’s a whole lotta damage!”
So much damage, that even Flex Seal can’t fix it.
