our southern screen door

The number of critical situations in the world have continued to increase, yet our government stands by either wringing their hands, pointing fingers at one another, or vebally chastising our enemies, and all the while, illegal movement continues northward through our southern borders. Why is this topic of border security more important than ever ?  The increase in Islamic activity bent on destruction of the west is more prevalent than ever. These miliatants not only have a similar ethic appearance as our neighbors to the south, but also can easily learn spanish, melting in with others crossing our borders. Picking up on a "middle eastern" accent mixed with recently learned spanish is not something most border patrol will notice, but when these individuals are released, rest assured they won't return to their country of origin. Now a new and even more insidious enemy has surfaced. The Ebola virus. As with AIDS, it only takes one individual slipping across our southern border undetected to bring this potential world catastrophe to our doorstep. So do we continue to wait and watch, shake our fingers yet proclaim our borders secure ?  It is time for the American public to realize that a real problem exists and solutions to that problem originates with our President, his advisory staff, and our congress in general. So how do we reward these people that refuse to take action in the interest of America, or worse, obstruct any attempt to correct the problem ? We re-elect them !! So where does the fault really lie ? With a complacent, non-informed public that finds it easier to re-elect incumbents than to research and understand the issues. Wake up America...while there is still an America to wake up to....
