    Easy---closing the border. Israel can take care of itself in spite of the fact that people continue to think they lost the skirmish with the Hizbullys.

    Hmmm...are they mutually exclusive?

    Given your well publicized feelings on Israel, I suspect you are looking for a heated debate fostered by what could be viewed as a deliberate troll.

    It seems obvious I agree. Yet our president is doing the exact opposite.

    They're not necessarily mutually exclusive, but judging from this administrations actions, one might think they were.

    Which is MORE important, in your view?

    This is NOT a troll. I'm asking people to really analyze whether American security is really the neocon goal. It's just a question.

    pretty much, we need to take care of home instead of caring about other nations.

    I think both are equally important (not a choice in your poll). International relations and foriegn policy have as much an impact (sometimes more) as secure borders.

    As for the administration, illegal immigration and the failure of this administration to address the issue is a HUGE negative in their standing with me. Unfortunately, I dont think the Dems offer anything any different. Neither seems to want to come to grips with the issue and neither is offering any effective and efficient means to curb the flood of illegals. That makes them all a bunch of spineless carpetbaggers in my book.

    I'm asking you to Prioritize. Choose one. Let's say there were resource constraints and we could only afford one. Which would you choose?

    National security is not a single issue. It is affected and impacted by many many things including the actions of foreign nations and foriegn institutions. The US was mostly isolationist pre-WW II and we paid for that in blood and treasure.
