It's time for Action instead of Talk

Updated on August 21, 2015

I'm on the right side of politics and enjoy a good debate on government, the economy, and the rights of the people.

America and her leaders have an obligation to the citizens of this country only. The continual rhetoric about immigration is meaningless. Without a strong system of internal checks and balances that protect American jobs, values, and culture, our nation will cease to exist as we know it. Yes, immigrants have been hugely impactful in the building of this nation, but those immigrants came here legally and followed the pathway to citizenship that our laws established. Also, those people came here to become part of America, giving up their past and embracing our way of life. Too many of the undocumented aliens crossing our borders illegally come here to leech off of our charity and have no intention of learning our language, adopting our customs, or following our laws. They establish communities that are like small colonies from their home countries. As a nation, we open our borders to the world because America is a beacon of hope and offers everyone the chance to become whatever they want to be. Yet, some people feel they are above the law and can come cross into our nation without regard, taking jobs away from our citizens, utilizing schools and health care that they do not contribute to, and sending proceeds from illegal work out of the country, thus denying the overall economy the reinjection of cash normally seen. This practice needs to stop. And before anyone decries it as racism, xenophobic, or any other politically correct terms, I’d beg them to stop because it’s not about any of those things. It’s about defending our laws, our customs, and our people. America is made up of many races and there is none being singled out or discriminated against in this practice. It’s time for real change to happen and we cannot wait any longer turning a blind eye to unchecked and lawless people coming into the country. It’s time to act and that means electing a leader who will have the courage as an American and a Leader to stand up proudly and say, “no more” to those who would try to undermine our sovereignty by allowing non-citizens free access to this great land. Donald Trump has stood up and proclaimed his readiness to be that person and that is why I am supporting him for President. We need real change in Washington and he is committed to making it.

Before you Comment

Many people see Mr. Trump as a brash loudmouth who is blunt and unapologetic. I agree that he has a swagger, but since when is America about hiding in the shadows and cowering. We live in a great country with a level of freedom most people take for granted and I'd be proud to have a leader who would let the world know once again that we are on top and not to be taken lightly. Political Correctness has weakened our nation diplomatically, economically, and socially and its high time we put an end to it. Now disagree with me as you may, I'll welcome any civil comments for discussion, but don't make this your sounding board. It's another of those great FREEDOM's we have here in America - I can say what I'm feeling without fear of being put in prison or executed. Let's preserve this and the rest of our freedoms by electing leaders who put America first

    I appreciate the civility shown from commentators and the great dialogue offered. It sounds likes everyone is fed up in one way or another with our current government.

    Obama wanted to do away with carried interest loop-hole.....don't think it got anywhere.

    I would imagine if we knew all the secret deals wealthy got--we'd be mortified.

    OR--we'd scream: So what? They earned it, they deserve it, you are just jealous, you're a hater, get off your high-horse yada yada ya

    I would say Sanders is the ONLY one who will do anything to disturb the wealthy community at all.

    And we have not yet BEGUN to see the demonization of Bernie. Stay tuned.

    Which candidate and which party is going to get rid of the income tax system with its internal revenue code that can only be used by the wealthy. This is the root cause of why the rich get wealthier and the rest get poorer.

    These people are high class criminals.....do you understand? They don't mind dead bodies, innocents dying, innocents locked up, abandoned children, people suffering---and that includes people in Congress. For instance, I don't think Harry Reid had an accident with a weight machine...I think he was beat up. As both JFK and J Edgar said: the conspiracy is monstrous, and deadly and fierce.

    I personally think you have to end it with a very secret counter-force behind the scenes. I personally think this is happening as we speak. Only my opinion!!

    But it would help if the public didn't always Rah Rah their murderous rampages.

    Didn't fall for all their Gladio-type hype and manipulations.

    After Iran insisting they don't want nuclear bomb, after OUR intelligence services telling us they aren't producing one.....

    If we end up at war, with Americans screaming USA USA USA USA---even though it has nothing to do with us, our country, and will ultimately take American lives......

    I will know they have succeeded again.

    So why hasn't congress clean up the mess?

    Wha if I told you 9/11 was an inside job, and the people you call patriots are the real terrorists.

    American and Israel, terrorizing the world, including our own fellow counry-men.

    And it'd been going on a very long time.

    THIS is the world we're living in.

    This is how I see it, so the wall I want to see are prison walls, with neo-cons in them.

    This century we find a different kind of world, and we find our country under attack domestically. Not by a large military or even a country, as we have experienced on 911. To think that we can continue to think as we have in the past is just what the terrorists would like us to do now.

    A wall is necessary to keep the billion dollar drug cartel from Mexico or at least slow down their drug infestation in the US. Along with the drugs they bring other criminal activities, like gun running, and sex trafficking.

    In addition, it would make it more difficult for terrorists to get into the country. The US for security measures has proven that it is only reactive and not proactive. So while we try to prevent another 911, the terrorists can develop any number of new attacks that we are not prepared for.

    Remember, during 911 the country had no armed aircraft to defend against the attackers. The military couldn't even protect the capital with an Air Force Base only miles away.

    So we need all the protection that we can get, and the wall is needed for more than the single purpose of illegal immigration.

    We already have a fair amount of the wall started, so lets finish it. People that don't live near the border really don't have any idea about the border. The drug cartel outguns, out mans, and has been technology and communications than the US Border Patrol.

    The US southern border is pretty ugly terrain, and mostly just a desert. A wall can only make it look better. Over the last several decades, the drug cartel has spent more time and money building tunnels across the border, but I guess that is OK because it can't be seen.

    As I see it, the major threat to our country is coming from inside the borders, allowing the opportunities for those bad guys outside the border to come in like they were invited.

    This guy's Hubris is monumental.....already, I am changing the channel when he's on. 2 minutes is all I can take.

    Granted, I don't live in a border area....but I just cannot imagine a huge wall on there....like Berlin, or the separation wall in Gaza.

    It's anathema to everything American!

    Especially when it will have Trump written all over it...probably in gold!

    He'd probably add himself to Mount Rushmore. He can afford it: who's to stop him?

    And we have never had full equal protection nor full equal rights in America.

    The Constitution had to be amended to include major swaths of those deemed inferior.

    And from where I sit, Trump is a Superior, who thinks he and his business cronies can tell us all what to do, and the world will be fine.

    Tax cuts, tax breaks, and hey: the rest can rely on the good charity of these good people......

    Charity is great...but when working people need it, something is really wrong with this picture.

    And when working one job is not enough....something is doubly wrong.

    He's already said those companies who went overseas for profit should get a tax break on their foreign income when "he" brings them back....Obama has said this too.

    But I want to know: all these jobs he's talking about: are they $9.00-$10.00 and hr?

    Try living on that.

    Unions--a great American tradition....gone?

    And--as David Kay Johnson pointed out: "It’s easier to mine gold from the government’s treasury than from the side of a mountain. Why wouldn’t you go do that if you could get the government to give you money? And Donald Trump — a tax that’s supposed to serve the poor, his company got $89 million for a tax designated for the poor."

    ...Just imagine what he could do if he's in there as president.

    He's got a lot of "friends"who'd love that gold mine. Including his good one, Bibi, and a new son-in-law, who has a couple of start-up companies in Israel.

    Somehow, I don't imagine human rights being much a part of this agenda.

    Allowing illegal immigrants to get de facto American citizenship is unfair to all those people that went through the legal immigration process, and after spending money on attorneys and years in the process only to be denied.

    The congress, supreme court and the presidents that failed to do anything about the illegal immigration over the last several decades are to blame. And the voters who put them in office are also pari delecto.

    As for unequal protection, and equal rights the illegal immigration violates both of them.

    It remains to be seen who he's putting first. If he's paid to have our politicians do his bidding, how can you trust him?

    If it's Hillary, we have a democrat. Bet you anything, if it's Donald, we'll have essentially a democrat also. (Hope that's civil enough.)
