secure them with WHAT?
A Homeland Civil Defense Corps? At this stage of the game, Mike, we're stretched too thin to use the military. The BP doesn't have enough agents. The Minutemen lack legitimacy, unfortunately.
All that leaves is a corps of volunteers recruited and retained by the government, whether that be State or Federal.
But the lack of a border security force should not be reason to shrug our shoulders and say "Oh, well..." I don't believe that's what you're doing, but I do believe there are folks out there with that attitude who would accept the status quo with resignation.
Our national security deserves a debate on and resolution to the problem of border security.
just lay landmines along the border, and problem solved.
Why do you say that?
