That is true but you dismiss the fact, even endorse the policy, of our military being killed to secure the borders of other sovereign nations when they are perfectly capable of doing so themselves. You may even get out from in front of Fox News if somebody invaded the United States - I stress "may".

"To defend against all enemies foreign and domestic" This should be something our own military is doing, if someone kills a border patrol agent they are my enemy. The US is probably spreading our military a little thin, but I agree the government won't give the final order to go ahead either. The government has put our military in situations shorthanded before. Why wouldn't they do it now?

How are your perceptions of my views on foreign wars germane to this thread?

They're not.

Bottom line: we can defend our borders if we choose to. Those whose job it is to protect our borders are not. Where does that leave you and me?

Answer: In the ****ter.

What do we do to fix a really broken government?

Answer: (you fill this one in)
