Way back when, I am not sure of the date, President Reagan made an error. It was one of his few. He agreed that they would grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens under the agreement that the border would be secured.
Guess what. President Reagan came through with his part of the agreement. The dummycrats didn’t. The border was not seured and it has not been secured to this day.
Not only was it an error but it has become a pattern. It is similar to Charlie Brown, Lucy, and the football. For anyone unaware, Lucy promises to hold the football while for Charlie while he kicks it. Without fail, she moves the football right before he kicks it. Poor Charlie never learns. Every time, he misses the ball and ends up flat on his back.
I would hope that we don’t repeat the error of Reagan again. If we do, maybe the Republicans are more foolish than Charlie. Then again, maybe it is willing, or more accurately, designed foolishness. Maybe they don’t really want THE WALL and they just want to hide behind the dummycrats. Still, I wonder. Do they really prefer to look so dumb?
I am beginning to think the only way that President Trump will build any kind of barrier is to declare an emergency. If he does, he may as well do it right and build it coast to coast. I mean, if he is going to be in for a penny, he may as well be in for a dollar. More important, the dummycrats just might learn an important lesson, or maybe two. For that matter, the rinos might learn a thing or two.
Then again, I doubt it. I think that is just a little too much to hope for. The dummycrats don’t want the wall so that they can gain power. The rinos don’t want it because they want cheap labor. Neither one cares a thing about the loss of life on both sides of the border and I don’t think they ever will.
