Why He Should Not Get The Wall

There should be no wall because of the cost. Sure it is a pittance compared to the budget but they will use it against us. When they get that debt up, they will turn around and say they have to balance the budget and they will go for the security nets! They want a huge deficit so they can go after those 'entitlements'. We cannot help them try to get rid of the things our country treasures the most.

There are many reasons we should not give in about the wall but protection for our most vulnerable is the most important. Do not give them a reason to go after everything that enables people to have some sort of a life.

1. I am fighting it!!!!!

San Diego does NOT want it. The bastard GOP congressman Duncan Hunter is all over it. I hope he doesn't get reelected. We want him to disappear like Issa. He is an actual criminal and he wants a wall...typical GOP rep.

2. If it comes down to a half-assed wall/fence or deporting good people,

I donít care about offering up the wall.

It wonít get built as he envisions it. Let trump cut ribbons and hold mass Klan rallies to worship the dang thing, for all I care. Just quit playing with peoples lives.

4. Exactly. Thanks, usedtobedemgirl.

 

And can you identify once in history when a wall actually kept people out of a country in this day and age?

I've posted here about the walls that I know of. The Iron Curtain, the Chinese Wall (worked until modern era but no more), and the Maginot Line in France (the Germans simply entered France through another route) and Hadrian's wall.

Walls are unworkable ideas. Another stupid Trump idea.
