What is going on at the U.S. border with Mexico is making me sick.

I was watching a video a few nights ago by the National Rifle Association, yes, the NRA.

They were interviewing all the poor people along the U.S. border with Mexico in Texas and Arizona.

These folks are constantly finding dead animals, dead people and everything else on their property..

How would you like to come home from work and find illegal aliens in your back yard eating one of your animals?

I know, it's against the law to use the United States military to do civilian duties, but I think we are literally at war.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of U.S. military forces to perform the tasks of civilian law enforcement such as arrest, apprehension, interrogation and detention unless explicitly authorized by Congress.

But this is getting ridiculous.

Border agent Brian terry was gunned down by drug cartel members. Janet Napolitano made Terry defend himself with a beanbag. The thugs had AK 47s.

How did that work out?

This administration will let in more illegals and who knows who these people are pouring across our borders, so they won't offend the Mexican voting block they rely on for the fall election.

We keep hearing about how hard the druggies are to handle. I say lets give them a taste of the the United States military and we can shut down things pretty well despite all the crooked politicians in Mexico we'll have to deal with.

Folks, it's come down to this, are we really serious about preserving our country?

That's my point of view what's yours?

You are right, we are at war. But it is the "war on drugs" that we have waged that is causing us so much grief at the border. Drug prohibition laws create a lucrative black market, virtually providing job security for thugs and murderers. Our drug laws fuel organized crime. People don't kill each other over pills and plants, they kill each other over money and power.

The "war on drugs" kills more people each year than the drugs themselves.

Before there was the euphoric enthusiasm of a Morman presidential candidate and at a time when America was ready show the world it was racially diverse in presidential considerations and before a war on women had been waged, when jobs were not affirmative hand-outs, and being rich was a goal and not a bad thing; there was a candidate who wanted our military to protect the borders. You remember, the guy that was a kook and media couldn't say anything good about him, that crazy libertarian fellow,
