    Of course not. I support a wall because illegal invasion restricts Liberty for Americans. Americans lose jobs to illegals. Illegals cost the American taxpayer huge amounts of money in unpaid medical bills, crime incarceration costs, and unpaid taxes to name a few. As a Libertarian, I am for any measure that limits, restricts or stops cold any condition that hurts opportunities for American citizens, and that includes illegal immigration. It is high time we did something about it.

    Lets do the math

    Reagan increased the national debt in 8 yrs by 1.6 trillion, however Obama in just 5.5 yrs has increased the national debt by 7 trillion and climbing. Is my math wrong or are you a Obama supporter at all cost? Of course you are. When Obama gets done he will all by himself will increase the national debt by 10 trillion more than all the presidents combined.

    Obama is sinking and you hang on to his sinking ship hoping and hoping, but only the most loyalist hang in to keep him afloat.

    I wish you people would stop this Democrat vs Republican thing. BOTH parties are failures. BOTH are running this country into the ground.

    Please wake up.

    Look at the wall Israel built, it works, but of course you would never admit it. And to answer your question it keeps terrorist out and the suicide bombers have been non existent, sense the time the wall was built. And it works to keep people in, the Berlin wall did it all, keep people in and people out. Lets remember it was Reagan that asked to "tear down that wall".

    So yeah walls work. In fact walls have worked from the time of the beginning of man.

    Should we ever have a budget surplus again, what should we do with the extra money?
    One thing we should be sure not to do is to elect a republicon president ...
    They will spend and spend and spend till it's all gone 10 times over...
    We learned that lesson with Bush Junior.
