Honor them. Stop surrendering your freedom.

Problem is 52% of this country prefers to surrender their freedoms and will continue to do so until it is too late.

Love your freedom...love your country...thank and help those who serve/served...protect our borders...put an end to terrorism...then you and your family can sleep comfortably under the flag of the United States of America.

And now Chucky Scmuker wants the Feds. to give hundreds of millions of dollars to fight the war on heron coming across our border from Mexico. He fought every effort to secure our border from the illegal voter bloc but now he wants to fight drugs, carried by these invaders but not the invaders
