    Is it time to restrict U.S. travel to and from Ebola stricken nations?

    If confirmed, the two deaths would bring the worldwide total to 889. Nearly all of the deaths have been in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.
    The nurse in Nigeria had helped care for a Liberian-American man who had traveled to Nigeria, where he died, the country's Ministry of Health said Wednesday.

    Is it time to refuse entry of anyone traveling into the US who have recently visited Ebola stricken countries - namely Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria and the State Department issue travel restrictions to these countries as they have not issued travel warnings or restrictions to these nations yet?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and thats crazy." -Reagan

    Yes, on the caveat that we do everything possible to get the people out of there that want to get out. I would definitely restrict travel TO those places to only CDC or equivalent type of personnel.

    Yep and I don't think we should be bringing them back into the US.....set up some medical facilities on a remote island or something.

    Not funny at all, not meant to be. I just want to see how our nations feeble attempts at doing something without partisan politics will kill hundreds.

    Travel should be restricted.Anyone who has Ebola should not be allowed into the US regardless if they are are a citizen or not.At least anyone in those countries who wish to come to the US should be quarantines in those countries and thoroughly tested.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
