Illegal Aliens Treated Better Than Veterans

Dear Editor,

I wonder if it’s possible to get my status changed to illegal alien.

Granted I’d probably lose my military retirement and disability status and my Social Security benefits. But when I see what our government is doing for people who’ve broken into our country, violating our laws, it makes me wonder if all those years were wasted, if all the sweat, the pain, the worry, the sacrifice was worth it when I’m seeing people who have flagrantly broken our laws being given everything they want and need.

How do I reinforce in my grandchildren a sense of responsibility, of proper ethics, of what makes you proud to be an American when our government appears to not give a happy rat’s fourth point of contact (paratrooper’s term) about us, the American people. our government can give law-breaking illegal aliens everything but can’t provide veterans, people who stepped up and gave of themselves for our country, with basic needs. What’s wrong with that picture?

Texas stepped up and told the federal government to step aside and let us show you how it’s done. And because they are doing things how it should be done, the federal government is running scared because they are showing America how it could be done all along the border, south and north. As for the wall President Trump was building, the (National Socialist) Democrat Party saw how well it was working and on day one when they got power, shut it down. And not only shut down construction but based on news footage, coyotes are cutting holes in it and bringing people through, and the worst part is there are no Border Patrol people anywhere in sight.

The last time I checked, the 10th Amendment to the Constitution says, in simple terms, that the federal government only has those powers delegated in the Constitution. If it isn’t listed, it belongs to the states or to the people. I’m no constitutional scholar, (I did stay in a Holiday Inn once) but it seems to me state governments could tell the feds thanks but no thanks to all these illegals they’re sending. Abraham Lincoln said it best in his Gettysburg Address, “…government of the people, by the people, for the people …” but the NSDP wants Americans to forget that and believe it should be “government of the elite, by the elite, for the peons.”

Carpe diem,
