The Schumer Shut Down Over Funding The Wall
So it has happened, the federal government is officially shut down because a divided Congress disputes the request by President Trump to fully fund the wall along our southern US-Mexico border. That’s just great, isn’t it? Does anyone remember reading something about this in the bible?
Although the subject matter was slavery, in 1858 President Abraham Lincoln gave his “House Divided” http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/house.htm speech about the congressional approach to ending slavery referencing Mark 3:25 that sounds very much like the meeting between President Trump, House Speaker-Designate Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Schumer https://www.marketwatch.com/story/transcript-of-the-heated-exchange-between-trump-pelosi-and-schumer-2018-12-11 about virtually ending illegal immigration by funding and building the wall.
Mark 3:25, ESV, “And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.”
Mark 3:25, NLT, “Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart.”
What’s not hard to figure out is that immigration is what makes the United States what it is, a nation of peoples from across the globe. Yet the problem of unlawful, illegal entry into the country is a plague that invites a myriad of societal issues that if left unchecked can spell the downfall of our nation.
We see how those wanting to come to the United States to work and provide for their families in their home countries are being taken advantage of by coyotes (bandits) for money to skirt around lawful entry points and often left to their own devices in the desert without food, water or shelter. Those who survive are many times severely dehydrated and in need of serious medical treatment. Completing the wall will close that gap and insure that those who enter the country do so in accordance to our immigration laws and current US policy.
National Security without a wall to control immigration in places where it is needed most is not security at all and a Congress not concerned about national security by funding a wall is not a Congress at all either!
We are not a nation of Democrats and Republicans. When we were born it did not state our political affiliation on our birth certificates. We are citizens of and love our nation, the United States of America.
American’s who attempt to tear down our nation from within (citizens, congressmen, media, entertainers or sports super-stars) by their actions have become enemies of our Constitutional Republic and are therefore enemies of the people. Enacting insane and repressive laws, rules or directives that go against the laws of nature (God’s laws) and/or against the Rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States will lead to a rebellion not seen in this nation since the Civil War.
It is time to terminate the “life as normal” by allowing our elected legislators to act out their fantasies in the halls of Congress or in front of media outlets without being held accountable by “We the People” who elected them. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
