In the state of Texas, they have taken a poll and found that the greatest threat to America is the ILLEGAL immigration that is taking place in this country, and it got me to thinking.
I think here in Arizona, my fellow citizens would probably be on the same path. We’re a border state with Mexico, and yes, we get a flood of illegal immigrants coming in (no…they are NOT “undocumented” aliens. They enter the country illegally. That makes them ILLEGAL aliens!). But it got me to thinking what IS the greatest threat to America right now?
I guess you could say ISIS would be in the ballpark. Not bad for “a JV team” that Bobo Obama doesn’t want to waste time dealing with. I think probably illegal immigration would be in the picture somewhere. Of course, if you’re sitting in Iowa or Kansas you may not necessarily agree with that…but just how are the ISIS idiots coming into this country? Some are US citizens, yes…but my hunch is the vast majority are coming in through a still-porous southern border. Just a hunch. Nothing to back it up.
Other things that are going to be a threat to America going forward? I think one thing that is definitely on the list is the lack of competent leadership. We’ve gone through seven years of incompetence and I think it’s beginning to take its toll. There are a lot of things that we Americans can put up with, and incompetence at the top is one of them. And while I think the country is strong enough to handle incompetence for a while, if you start watering down the quality of leadership at the top, it doesn’t take long for the country to slide. We’re on the precipice right now. We can’t afford another four more years of wishy-washy, mamby-pamby, no-guts leadership that we’ve received from this administration. We need someone that is decisive, someone that can make a decision, and someone that isn’t all talk. I guess that leaves out all of the community organizers out there, doesn’t it?
I think a great threat to America is our economy. Let’s face it, the world economy isn’t in the best place right now, and we’re certainly not leading the pack in that. China is teetering on at least a recession, and I’m not sure they know how to deal with it effectively. Europe is a mess with the huge bills run up by liberal governments over the years that are now coming due (hello Greece, Italy, and Spain!). And Russia is in terrible straights economically, which should also be very scary. Do you know what the number one way to get out of a depression is? You start a war. Anyone want to guess why Vladimir Putin is being so bellicose right about now? What got us out of the Great Depression wasn’t necessarily FDR and his socialist programs (though they helped short term). Anyone that didn’t sleep through history class knows, he was itching to get us into World War II and was only waiting for a reason to pull the trigger. THAT was what really pulled us out of the Great Depression!
Wow. You’ve got quite a bit to choose from. Take your pick. Enjoy. Any one will do.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
