6. Please just read up on some history. Look up T. E. Lawrence,
"Lawrence of Arabia". Read about what has happened in the Mid-East since the late 1800's going forward, and then just imagine that is where you live. WHERE YOUR FAMILY IS FROM.

Picture yourself here in this country, being invaded because your part of the nation sits on top of a huge oil or natural gas reserve. I live in such an area and I do know how I would feel. It would not be a partisan issue, anymore.

We need to stop this BS. It is our responsibility, as citizens, as "we the people" to demand it of our representatives. We need to supply them with the Constitution, a copy of their oath of office and demand that they do the damned job they were elected to do.
