Thread: Relevance of Ron's "The wall will be used to keep us in" stance

    Relevance of Ron's "The wall will be used to keep us in" stance

    I think this view holds more significance for a country say in Europe where leaving by foot can bring you to dozens of other countries in close proximity.

    I agree with Ron in eliminating welfare and bringing our troops home and putting them on the border before erecting a wall. And I agree we should have the option to flee to Mexico if we wish. But like Ron said on legalizing all drugs, "If heroin became legal today, how many of you would start doing it? Nobody would!"

    I recognize eliminating welfare is more or less impossible, so at what point does a $25 billion wall cost less than having our troops on the border, year after year?

    I do not support the wall because of the "keep us in" problem but I will not expend energy opposing it because I do not believe that if America becomes that bad any other place will be better, I also do not believe that it would take long for an America that became so bad to put up a wall anyway.
