    Having been accused on this board of being "for Open Borders," I thought I'd take a minute to figure out what it is people mean by "open borders."

    If one is not "for" Open Borders, it stands to reason that they are for CLOSED BORDERS. The opposite of open is closed. Right?

    Congress listened to the anti - immigrant crowd and came to the same conclusion. So, the top anti - immigrant activist in the United States (who is both an attorney and a U.S. Congressman) introduced the so - called "Patriot Act" which is also subtitled "Protecting the Border."

    The so - called "Patriot Act" spawned efforts to spend more and more money on the border until you wound up with kooky ideas like manning the border, building a fence around America and militarizing the borders. Yes, I am opposed to that.

    Make no mistake, Rep. James Sensenbrenner, who introduced the so - called "Patriot Act" also introduced the National ID / REAL ID Act. To prove to you that Sensenbrenner is anti - immigrant, Sensenbrenner is the Congressman that introduced HR 4437 - a bill that would have made improper entry into the United States a criminal act.

    I oppose these fence building / wall building / border militarizing schemes because those behind the ideas are not only anti - immigrant, but they are pro POLICE STATE as well. For example, Michael Chertoff, the co - author of the so-called "Patriot Act" and as one article states:

    "A report issued by the Congressional Research Service, the non-partisan research division of the Library of Congress, said that the unchecked delegation of powers to Chertoff was unprecedented: "After a review of federal law, primarily through electronic database searches and consultations with various CRS experts, we were unable to locate a waiver provision identical to that of §102 of H.R. 418—i.e., a provision that contains 'notwithstanding' language, provides a secretary of an executive agency the authority to waive all laws such secretary determines necessary, and directs the secretary to waive such laws.

    ...Michael Chertoff has been an advocate of enhanced technologies, such as full body scanners
    ."

    Michael Chertoff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If I'm going to have to looked upon as a bad guy for opposing a POLICE STATE, then so be it. I remain convinced that the government big enough to give you your daily bread is certainly big enough to take it from you.

    BloodyDolt is in favor of open borders. Anyone with a brain (which excludes him) knows what that means.

    He will now gas on for 2,3497 pages about terms and concepts he doesn't understand and become quite upset at anyone who hasn't taken the same mushrooms he has.

    If we're lucky he will also give us a rendition of his 'Mr. Tough Guy and Mz. RunandHide' performance.

    The OP is too stupid to understand the concept of regulated borders.

    You really aren't making an intelligent argument for anything other than for posters to dismiss your hysterical hyperbole as.... hysterical hyperbole.

    So, without a single question, you determine that I'm stupid? You're not too smart yourself. I'm on record of floating ideas creating a regulated border. You wouldn't know about that. You're too busy criticizing to understand THAT is what my critics do NOT want.

    I could double the manpower on the border without spending a dime of taxpayer money; eliminate virtually every improper entry; reduce the money we spend on that silly ass issue by 75 percent and do so in a single piece of legislation.

    What can you do other than be part of a lynch mob and raise hell?

    Can you even define hysterical hyperbole without looking it up on the net? I thought not.
