Is America due a refund?

July 21, 2014

We, the people, send a lot of money to Washington to keep us safe, to defend us, if you will. When we respond to a potential threat, we spend even more. Are we getting our money’s worth?

In keeping with the title of this blog, let’s do a little musing.

Exactly what does constitute an escalation of threat potential relative to the safety of our borders? In today’s world, how do we define safety?

Is safety deliberately flooding our southern borders with ever-increasing  and uncontrollable (under current administration policy) waves of illegal border crossers, both children and adults?

Is safety foreign governments demanding more of our tax dollars to “control” that flow?

Is safety a Mexican military chopper firing on our clearly identifiable Border Patrol agents from inside U.S. borders and simply apologizing for it?

Is safety unidentified helicopters from the Mexican side of the border repeatedly overflying our air space on the Rio Grande with no apparent challenge from, or comment by, our government?

Is safety .50 caliber suppressive fire from the Mexican side of the border aimed at our Border Patrol agents inside the U.S.?

Is this in keeping with Article Two, Section One, Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution, requiring a president-elect to  “…  preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” when taking the oath of office?

Does clause 15 of Article Two, of that same U.S. Constitution, as quoted below, seem to  expect our presidents to use or authorize a military strategy or presence  to enforce the security of our borders?

“Clause 15:

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;”

Is this an invasion or a planned event?

Does anyone believe the three to ten-fold increase in unaccompanied alien children (UAC) over the past three years was “unexpected” when the administration, through the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), allocated $350 million grant and/or contract dollars to provide residential custodial care for a forecast of 60-65,000 of them?

Does anyone in our current administration in either the Executive or Legislative branches even care about any of this today?

If our government cannot or will not stop an invasion of children, does it have the will to defend us from any other type of  invasion?

If this isn’t the government we thought we were getting, should we expect a refund, just as we do when we get any other defective or misrepresented product?

Just asking.
