To me, That is the cornerstone of your article. Beautifully written I might add.
I feel your passion and am sorry to disagree. To equate our government with terrorists is a bit over the top and I don't think you really believe that but add that statement just to show how strongly you feel about the subject.
Having lived on the border all my life I can tell you its not perfect..a rich country right next to a poor country. But both nations are better off with trade both sides of the communities along the border benefit. As to the whole business about terrorist threat coming from Mexico..please reconsider..its the islamic facists not poor mexicans. These people pick our fruit and clean our toilets they wish us no harm. Now those imans, mullahs, and assorted nuts..can't we go after them?
Thanks for the kind comment, pph.
