    My solution would be to pull all our military from overseas and redirect them to you know actually protecting our country instead of policing our politics and interests of corporate America globally.

    We don't need to do that to protect our borders. It's not an either/or proposition.

    Do you really believe that our entire military is overseas?

    No, what I am meaning is I feel we should pull back all our forces that are abroad and stop our global manipulation and world policing. We could then use those resources to secure our own borders.

    It doesn't work that way. First of all, soldiers cannot enforce laws. Look up posse comitatus. And that said, the majority of our troops are here in the US. You can look up an exact number but somewhere from 51 to 75 percent of US troops are stationed on base here in the US, not around "manipulating the world".

    The statute prohibits Army and Air Force personnel and units of the National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress
    If we militarized our borders it would greatly cut down on illegal emigrants entering our country.

    Maybe we should stop spending money on things that aren't in teh Constitution, I'd say that the BILLIONS we send out as foreign aide could be stopped ot ya know..

    Enforce the borders.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Isolationism is not the answer.

    True, but neither is imperialism.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Melodramatic much?

    I'm terrified by people who perceive a threat to themselves when a memo says: with limited resources, prioritize someone with a criminal record over someone who does not.

    But you can't see that through your outrageously partisan lenses.

    "Terrorist against its own citizens." People who are paranoid will be terrified by anything.
