You don't get this do you? You must be new here or a real Pollyanna. If this was 1955, yeah our government listened to US. Think back to Eisenhower warning us against Military industrial complex. But little did he ever imagine our society and our entire government would have been corrupted by our own politicians or inteligencia. And who made that happen? I keep seeing the face of George Soros. Wealthy foreign manipulators. Because none of this was a spontaneous cry from indigenous folks asking for diversity. Nope, never happened. This push for open borders, and sanctuary cities. Nobody asked for or needed giving Muslims sanctuary in Europe or Illegals here in the states , funny that was never asked for or by requested by locals. But it's imposed on us nonetheless. That seems to be a constant here. That isn't what a free and open democracy is about. It seems more like a dictatorship.
