    Our Border with Mexico is a Warzone. Thank Goodness for Cowboys with AK-47s

    "Notoriously porous, the border has reached new levels of lawlessness this year as smugglers, known as "coyotes", have become increasingly brazen, willing to fire on anyone -- from border patrols to [private property owners] -- who gets in their way."

    This situation has caused property owners along the border to start arming themselves... with Kalashnikovs. Many properties on the border lie in the middle of "network[s] of trails used by heavily-armed Mexican trafficking gangs to smuggle people and drugs into America." Some of the ranchers are fed up and have started shooting back. Property owners like Roger McCaslin, one of a new breed of cowboys "using AK47s and four-wheel drives instead of Winchester rifles and horses." I love seeing We the People striking back at those who mean us harm. The President and the Federal Government aren't doing anything about this problem. I have disliked this about Bush since early in his first term. He simply refuses to enforce our border... which is bizarre considering the people responsible for putting him in office -- the Conservative base -- want to see the border shut down.

    Looks like the President has finally noticed that we disapprove.

    "President George W. Bush plans to announce a border security initiative in coming weeks as part of his effort to win back support for his presidency from doubting conservatives.

    "The political row about America's "soft southern underbelly" -- bolstered by fears that terrorists may slip in through it -- has led to growing support among Republicans for a radical plan to build a 2,000-mile steel and wire fence along the entire border. The Homeland Security Department says that such a fence would be a waste of money, however."

    I still want my border fence. It is not a waste of money. Every little bit helps.

    Memo to the Republicans from your base: Take decisive action on the border NOW! This will come back to bite you in the next election if you continue to ignore the problem. If you want to win points, start making speeches lauding the Minute Men, and private owner guarding their own property as heros rather than condemning them as vigilantes (assuming that a vigilante is a bad thing, which I don't -- Batman is a vigilante).

    Border security and illegal aliens are going to be major issues in the next presidential election. It will be an interesting campaign. Maybe 2008 will be the year of the so calledThird Party.

    God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

    Either way, I think it is up to people to speed up the Border Security Issue. I definitely don't want this to be some kind of quick one-time issue that sparks a bit of debate and then dies down. Congressmen of all political sides should realize that having a border that anyone, or anything, can cross is not good.

    "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    --Samuel Adams
