    Re: Poll: Isolationism soars among Americans

    Personally, I'm fed up with the constant wars and interventions around the world we are involved in. We've had some 30,000 troops guarding the korean border for something like 50 years while at the same time we can't guard our own. We have troops and military bases on every continent in the world and for what? I say finish the fracas in afghanistan, bring ubl's head home on a stick and be done with it. Empire is simply too expensive at a time when we aren't sure if our bridges will last or the simple fact we have no idea who or what is simply skipping across our border. Enough is enough, it's obscene already.

    Census Bureau: Over 100,000 Illegal Aliens from the Middle East
    New Government Report Raises Concerns in Light of Terrorist Threat

    So get the facts, it's not capitalism as anti-Americans like to Blame everything on, it's because people don't want to enforce the law because it would effect the lefts power base which counts on them for votes legal and illegal. All they care about is power and to hell with the United States if the left can claim victory.
    The left depends on illegals votes for its power base?

    I wonder how they made the determination that minding our own business was isolationism?

    I think the US should mind it's own business too, but I'm not an isolationist.

    They're called wage laborers now, get your facts straight.
