My only comment is, “BARF!” Perhaps, one of the reasons why the enrollment has declined at the U of M is: Parents are sick and tired of their sons’ and daughters’ being indoctrinated as opposed to “EDUCATED,” AND THERE IS A DISTINCT DIFFERENCE.
Trump has the right idea! “America First!!!!!!”
I transported two homeless veterans today from Fort Harrison to the Poverello center, while the Governor and the City Government has agreed to accept ILLEGAL “ALIENS” into the country and provide them with all the necessities of life!
Federal monies go to sanctuary cities, so even though Missoula might embrace the concept, maybe President Elect Trump will act on his idea to defund sanctuary city monies and then watch those who are addicted to all of their entitlements, squirm, while many who enlist in the military do so, to protect those who would destroy the Republic, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of men and women who died on foreign soil to protect Freedom and Liberty, which is taken for granted today! Democrats, progressives, or liberals, or whatever label people put on advocates of a growing and controlling government———fail to realize that, incrementally, as government grows, citizens lose their freedoms and liberties, EXPONENTIALLY! Since the Constitution was signed we have been moving in the direction of a Socialist society. “Freedom is not free.” Karl Marx is alleged to have said, “SOCIALISM IS THE ROAD TO COMMUNISM,” and it appears that we are very close to plunging into that dark abyss of TOTALITARIANISM. Once our freedoms are lost, they are lost forever!
George Orwell was a man ahead of his time when he wrote the book, “NINETEEN EIGHTY FOUR!” He explains how a “totalitarian government,” or the “PARTY” keeps itself in power by “COMPLETE CONTROL OVER MAN’S ACTIONS AND HIS THOUGHTS!” Of course those of us who were raised studying history as it really happened, in the 40’s and 50’s, have a different viewpoint than those who were “indoctrinated” by those who took over our present system of education, from the 1960’s, forward! They forget that there is no FREE LUNCH! SOMEONE ALWAYS HAS TO PAY! THEY ALSO FORGET THAT A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN PROVIDE THE PEOPLE WITH ALL OF THEIR BASIC NEEDS, IS ALSO, AT THAT JUNCTURE, SUFFICENTLY LARGE ENOUGH TO TAKE AWAY EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE. ONCE THAT HAPPENS, WE LOSE OUR STATUS AS “CITIZEN’S” AND BECOME “SUBJECTS” of the government.
The individual who aspires to make Missoula a sanctuary city and thinks that he is creating a better world for his daughter might take a trip to Cuba, North Korea, or even Russia, to observe the kind of lifestyle we are headed for, if we continue on the present path.
Nikita Kruschev, 3 ½ months, prior to his first visit to the “U.S.” said, “We cannot expect the Americans to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of Socialism, until they suddenly awake to find they have COMMUNISM!” “OH, WHAT A TANGLED WEB WE WEAVE, WHEN FIRST WE PRACTICE TO DECEIVE.” AMERICANS HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TODAY TO AWAKEN FROM THEIR DEEP SLUMBER AND BEGIN, AGAIN, TO RECALL WHY THIS NATION FOUGHT THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND ULTIMATELY ESTABLISHED OUR REPUBLIC.
NO NEW IMMIGRATION LAWS NEED TO BE PASSED! ALL WE NEED TO DO IS ENFORCE THE LAWS THAT ARE ALREADY ON THE BOOKS. THAT DOESN’T DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM COMING TO THIS COUNTRY. IT IS ALSO NOT UNREASONABLE TO EXPECT THAT THOSE COMING INTO THIS COUNTRY HAVE A DESIRE TO ASSIMILATE INTO OUR SOCIETY, WHO WANT TO BECOME ENGLISH SPEAKING CITIZENS. AS A NATION, WE CANNOT BECOME THE SAVIOR TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE AFFECTED BY CONFLICTS THAT EXIST THROUGH OUT THE WORLD! TO DO SO WILL DESTROY THIS GREAT EXPERIMENT AS A REPUBLIC!
