Why Lie? We are at War with Mexico
Townhall.com ^ | July 7, 2014 | Tony Katz

Posted on 07/07/2014 4:51:25 PM PDT by Kaslin

Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are Mexican. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are old to enough to even know what's happening to them. Not all of the illegal invaders coming over the border are looking to do Americans harm, nor are they carrying diseases or have gang affiliations. But every illegal invader has gained access through Mexico, and Mexico has allowed the attacks on our border.

It's clear. We are at war with Mexico.

Drug cartels have long since run amok and with abandon, driving further into US soverign territory. Without regard for life - their own nor anyone else's - they threaten to kill ranchers and others who live on the border, telling them to look the other way when they engage their drug smuggling operations.

Americans who vacation at places like Fox Lake in Texas have been killed by cartel members, simply for jet skiing on a lake. Arizona has taken to putting up signs, hundreds of miles from the border, telling people to be careful, to not pick up hitchhikers and - literally - warning Americans not to travel on American soil. Signs in the area read:

Recently, a Mexican helicopter crossed into US soverign territory and fired two shots at Border Patrol agents. When the copter landed, the pilot apologized. US Marine Andrew Tahmoreesi apologized, yet he still sits in a Mexican jail; the first POW of the war.

Americans being threatened. Americans unable to move freely in their own country. Americans being fired upon. POW's. America is at war with Mexico.

Yet, America stands motionless, accepting without strong rebuke 50,000 children and others - toddlers, the infirm, the sick - who are used as weapons in the fight for America's money.

Inscribed at the bottom of the Statue of Liberty is a poem by Emma Lazarus. It reads:

Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,

Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

How true, and how America has; accepting those who search for the American Dream and what that dream entails. What we see now, however, are not the dreamers that worked their way into the fabric of America, helping to sustain it while building it.

No longer is there the push for the American Dream, where people work to acheive their piece of the pie. Rather, the push into America is driven by America's Free Things - healthcare, social security and food stamps amongst them. In the dream of America's Free Things, the pie is free.

To be sure, they are driven by those who wish to do harm to the US - politically, economically and socially - by attempting to erase the standards by which a nation can prosper.

America is at war with Mexico, and must react strongly and swiftly to ensure the peace of Americans in the border states and throughout the Union. America must end the free flow of earned dollars to those who did not earn it; we must tell those who try to invade, "No. You get nothing."

It is not rude nor cruel nor indecent to say "No." It is, truly, the most humanitarian thing that can be done. If rules are not followed, if boundaries are not set, if standards are not applied and then held to (and held up!) what, possibly, can follow but lawlessness and danger? If we do not say "No," how do we do anything more than enable the worst of feelings - shame and humiliation?

Giving the free things, and not saying "No," reinforces the uncivil doctrine that they - the illegal invader - are not good enough. That's why they resort to breaking the law. That's why they think they should be able to demand free things. That's why the buyinto the lies of Progressives.

They have never been told "No." That their path is not one of graft and gimmes and handouts and begging and mediocrity. Their path involves work and sacrifice. Their path involves desire and sweat. Their path will only become clear when they fix their home nations - whether the problems be crime, cronyism, poverty or drugs, or a mix of those deadly diseases.

When we don't say "No," we are telling them that they are not smart enough nor good enough to better their lives. We are telling them that they are too dumb to do it on their own.

And what do we tell our own citizens when the invaders come (or, worse, dropped on our doorstep, as 50,000 children have?) That they must pay? That they must acquiesce? That they must submit and accept what is happening to them? To their children? To their nation?

Americans don't accept, don't submit and will not acquiesce. This is war. And we must prove once again that we are not afraid to fight. We, the ones yearning to breath free, still.

What does Mexico do with illegal immigrants who are citizens of the USA?

Sign them up for welfare?

No problem.

We can legalize the drugs, too!

I was reading recently about the Zimmerman Telegram

All I could think was - it was 100 years too early. Next time a foreign power wants to oppose the USA, California, AZ and NM are in play.

Fascinating book. Just read it about 6 months ago myself. I too had similar thoughts about then vs today.

Methinks Mexico should give us back our Marine. Otherwise, we should nuke their oil fields.

Ok, I maybe a little over the top...

Actually, the bass turds south of the border are at war with us. We already gave up. The jerks in this country are too busy shouting, “Remember Cinco de Mayo!” That 15 minute battle has scared the piss out of the blue toothers formerly known as Americans.

This is what I’ve been telling my husband the past few weeks. Mexico is our enemy - look what they did to our Marine, look what they’re doing to us on the illegals - letting them walk thru Mexico to get here where before they stopped them at their own border. Mexico is not an ally - they are our enemy.

I'd say we are war with Washington D.C.

The bureaucrat overlords are aiding and abetting this invasion. Mehico is just a case of nature filling a vacuum. The vacuum is the open border policy of our Government. Their refusal to defend our nation, and in fact sending out open invitations to invaders.

It’s a two front war and they will keep invading...

I’ve been saying this for years.

Mexico and others are corrupt, failed States and Mexican and other S. American ‘immigrants’ are refugees from a currupt failed States. This is an international treaty issue (or war issue).

This is NOT an immigration issue.

The US and Mexico are at war. And the Mexican army of thousands of kids is being commanded by their general in the white hut.

We need a president like James K. Polk - the most under-rated President of all time.

“Why Lie? We are at War with Mexico”

We aren’t at war with Mexico; we’ve absorbed the whole nation as welfare clients. The price is their children, needed to keep our public schools open.

It is definitely an invasion and it was definitely pre-meditated

You are not at war if you don't fight back.

“I was reading recently about the Zimmerman Telegram. All I could think was - it was 100 years too early. Next time a foreign power wants to oppose the USA, California, AZ and NM are in play.”

Who would even defend what is left? As it stands now, we’ve basically absorbed Mexico; it is a completely dependent satellite of the US.

The Zimmerman Telegram must be looked at in the context of the US invasion of Mexico in pursuit of Pancho Villa. The US was blatantly violating neutrality (arming Britain), and Germany understood that the US could never let Britain lose (since we would want payment for those goods).

And Mexico at least in parts is a failed state.

A dictatorship.

Extra-Judicial Police have long been there.

Except before they didn’t have this kind of competition, the Cartels.

Which they could probably largely quash if they wanted to.

Why should it cost 6% to send money in-state at Western Union but free if it goes to Mexico?

Money orders (USPS and others) are only $1-$2. The sender should pay 10% of the face amount to the US government used to raise Obama’s kids.
