Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Even Radical Leftists Believe That National Borders Matter
But if the “People” actually recognize no borders, then why do they always flock to the nirvana of America and not seek refuge in the Socialist paradise of Venezuela, or perhaps the lovely Zimbabwe? And why are millions of people trying to get away from their home nations and make the dangerous trek across the length of Mexico to seek entry here? The truth of the matter is that national borders do matter a lot. Some nations and some cultures practice bad things that people don’t want to live with, and they rule with a harshness that people don’t want to live under.
The United States has a representative government, whereas Central America often has governments that are dictatorships. The United States has a constitution that assures the poorest among its citizens rights that cannot be denied, whereas Central America only assures its citizens misery and poverty. The United States has been made wealthy by practicing capitalism, which assures those citizens who follow the rules a comfortable, even wealthy, middle class, whereas Central American citizens are only offered tyrannical rule and grinding poverty. The difference between the borders of the United States and the borders of Guatemala are vast and growing. And the borders of the United States represent freedom and liberty that all sensible people want. But in order to assure our pleasant way of life we must protect ourselves and guard our borders or evildoers will destroy what we have.
Of course borders matter, because some nations have bad governments and some don‘t, and populations gravitate to the better ones. It’s only the anti-American left and America’s filthy Democrat party that would insist that borders should all be open and that they really don’t matter much, except to the unfortunate individuals who get stuck within the wrong borders, and at that point borders become a life-or-death matter.
And, of course, the Democrat party is anxious to open the borders of the U.S. because they want a group of minority, poor, non-English-speaking, dependant voter base to assure their domination of power in the United States. With the presidency of Donald Trump the Democrats see their schemes evaporating in the wake of a man who actually has the welfare of American citizens in mind, and they will do anything to prevent more of his ilk from being elected again in the future.
