Thanks Craig.  I should've read your post first.  A voice of reason is a light in the darkness.  

 

And thanks for your nice comment. Any question you want to ask to kick off a discussion? You mentioned coming here for that.

Actually I don't think any of us "has anything" just yet... other than (mostly) pleasant greetings and salutations.  👍

Don't sweat leftwinger... he gets a lil' paranoid sometimes.

 

Everybody here is a Russian bot/troll kinda thing.

 

Just play along with him, that's what everyone else does.

Hello Bob, and welcome aboard. Real conservatives are wonderful people who we should all honor and respect. 

 

Thanks for the welcome.  Honestly though, we are all flawed in some way or the other.  Me as much (or more) than most.

Alternatively, you might want to go read some of the liberals only room to get some of the info you said you wanted.

There are some decent folks here, on both sides of the ball... and some nuts too, on both sides as well.

 

It only takes a couple of days to figure out who's who. It's a pretty small group.

Yes, thanks for asking.  

 

About the concept of a border wall.  I've heard people articulate that they think it's a BAD idea.  I'm trying to figure out why they think this.  It's one thing to say it will be ineffective.  I'm not asking why people think it won't work.  I'm asking why it would be a bad idea.  (And BTW, I happen to hold my own viewpoint in this regard, which I may divulge later...)

 

Note:  I'm not asking about Trump and how people feel about him good or bad.  I'm trying to detach Trump from the discussion.  


Why would a wall, in and of itself, be a BAD idea?

It's not a bad idea at all..

And at one time or another numerous Democratic leaders have talked about a wall, fence, barrier or something to stop the hundreds of thousands of illegals flooding our country...

The $ 5 billion isn't a big deal if you compare it with the foreign aid we give these same countries...

 

It's about Trump

And the Democrats have never gotten over 2016

The wall would take many many years to build, hardly a sound solution for a crisis.

its like getting cancer in your big toe and having the doctor tell you he will have to amputate in 2029

So is that the problem...

It would take too long to build...

 

But Democrats have proposed the same ideas before Trump

Democrats did not promise Mexico would pay to wall off the entire border.

That’s just one of many problems.

trump had two years with a gop Congress and it was so ho-hum he only asked Mexico to pay for it once.

now there is an urgency?

not bloody likely, mate😀

So what is the solution?

 

Drone strikes? Just open it up and come one come all? Build more detention/processing centers?

 

If not a physical barrier, what then?

If we are truly in an immediate and urgent crisis (as has been suggested by the President), then this argument holds merit.  But if the problem could possibly be ongoing for years in the future...

It seems as though your against Trump and just about anything there's a reason...

 

It would take too long...

Where was the GOP...

I thought Mexico was paying for it...

Why is it urgent...

 

All this is just anti-Trump talk and has nothing to do with the actual problem...

 

We have hundreds of thousands of illegals crossing...

We have drugs, guns and human trafficking...

We have unaccompanied children and gang members..

 

And those are facts

That Trump had an idea that Mexico would pay for it with maybe reduced foreign aid ..

Or maybe with their cooperation..

 

We both know it's against Trump...

It's not the $$$$$$$$$$

So correct me if I'm wrong here, but it sounds like you're basically saying that "The Wall" is the red meat that Trump throws to his base at the moment he needs their support...
