You really think we need a wall? Well yes, I do and here’s why:
We either have a country or we don’t. We don’t unless we have borders.
Hat-tip to American Thinker and author Rufus Dickerson for this ingenious idea! I saw it on Twitter and I haven’t been able to forget it. And I think it could work, I just don’t know the machinations of how.
First of all, you probably already know what crowdfunding is, but in case you don’t here’s the deal, compliments of DuckDuckGo (the search engine that doesn’t track you or your data):
“Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or cause by raising money from a large number of people, typically through the Internet. It is a form of peer-to-peer fundraising that harnesses the power of social networks to raise awareness and draw donations from around the world for online campaigns.”
Ok we’ve had a government shut-down over it, way too much useless dialogue on both sides and mostly a waste of time for everyone, so why not crowdfund the wall? Let’s take the government out of it. It’s very unlikely we’ll get the money from Congress and even if they did approve it, the likelihood of them ever actually appropriating funds for the wall seems to be little and none. And should it ever get appropriated, this talk about putting the funds in a “Trust Fund for the wall” is ludicrous. Remember the infamous “Social Security lock-box”? If that worked so well, why is SS going broke?
It’s way past time for relying on Congress to do what’s right, especially when half of them (including the RINOs like Senator Lindsey Graham!) think that what’s right is giving amnesty to millions of illegals just because they’re here.
But just because We The People voted for and elected President Trump whose main campaign promise was, “I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me” is a far cry from our representatives actually agreeing to do it. The sad truth is they do not represent us, they represent their big money donors (like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and loud-mouth activist groups). The Chamber wants cheap labor and the loud-mouth activist groups want U.S. citizenship handed to them. If that weren’t true why is e-Verify a voluntary program, and why do you see signs like those shown above?
