The words “failed state” and America are not used too often in the same sentence but perhaps it is time that they were.
The words “failed state” and Mexico are used frequently in the same sentence and there is a reason for that. Now something is happening in America that has been happening in Mexico that may make those words applicable here.
What is it?
Recently Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson toured the Arizona border along with Sheriff Paul Babeu. The tour was to highlight the issue of illegal immigration for Carson’s campaign. But the event highlighted something else that the Democrats and the Washington establishment don’t want to talk about.
We have lost control of part of America.
Sheriff Babeu pointed out to Carson that upwards of 70 miles into the United States, drug cartels control the countryside. Think about that for a second. Up to 70 miles north of the Mexican border, drug cartels have operational control of the countryside.
The definition of sovereignty for a nation is not only national borders but the ability to control the territory within those borders.
America is losing its national sovereignty to Mexican drug cartels and most of the major candidates for President don’t care. Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush don’t want to do anything about the border. They do want to give Amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens who broke America’s laws to enter this nation. They don’t have time for the American victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens.
A few years ago, I was on the Arizona border and I spoke with ranchers who lived there. They were prisoners on their own property. The could not leave their ranches for more than a few hours. If they did, their homes would be looted and their property destroyed.
The destruction of American sovereignty is being aided and abetted by the usual left wing suspects. Left wing lawyers are suing the Border Patrol over the death of an illegal alien. This illegal alien was a passenger on a boat trying to smuggle illegal aliens into the United States. The driver of the boat refused to stop and eventually the Border Patrol boat and the smuggler’s boat collided. The illegal alien was thrown into the ocean and died.
A criminal is killed while committing a crime and the left wants to sue America for it.
In Texas, ranchers live in fear of illegal aliens being injured while trespassing on their property. Again, they are worried about being sued by leftwing lawyers.
There is a simple solution. Congress can pass a law that states anyone in this nation illegally lacks the standing to sue. But Congress won’t do that because a majority of them support illegal aliens more than they support real Americans.
There is a reason why Donald Trump is surging in the polls. He is speaking about this issue when the Democrats and most Republicans wish this issue would just go away.
America is losing her sovereignty to a failed state. The tragedy is neither the Republicans nor the Democrats give a damn as long as they can pander to a group they think will extend their grip on power.
The sad truth is there isn’t any difference between Democrats and the Establishment Republicans.
