To the Editor:
The July 30 KDH editorial topic tweaked my interest with the headline: “Congress has moral obligation to address border crises.”
Boy, if that don’t stimulate discourse from both sides of the issue, nothing will, and if you are blasé about the subject, you don’t deserve an opinion.
Moral obligation? How about legal, strategic, safety and just plain logical obligation to address the border crisis?
We as a sovereign country are under assault on the hour by the enemies of sanity, and the ammunition they choose to use to tear down our defense is the one to which we are most vulnerable: children.
They are bombarding us with their children, for which they profess to want a better life.
Don’t buy into this absurd argument, nor the one made by ignorant politicians, “They are seeking freedom and safety.”
What a crock! Our own locally produced government dependents want neither freedom or safety. What they want is to be wards of the state for the remainder of their lives, without any condition or requirement to produce anything, or hint of personal responsibility. Go ahead and prove me wrong by citing one or two examples of some exceptional member of the illegal population who made a meaningful contribution, and I will show you jails full of those who are bleeding us dry.
Community organizers and activists don’t count as success stories.
We have our own unresolved problems with poverty, crime, cultural depravity, and worst of all, apathy and denial of cause and effect.
We cannot see, nor will we allow ourselves to understand that our lack of direction is caused by marginalization of the nuclear family and religious institutions.
And when I speak of religious institutions, I don’t mean the so-called churches that are nothing more than political fronts.
Provide for the common defense and secure the borders.
