    Your solution is a chimera, it's no solution at all. 1st you cannot shutdown US borders, nor can you shut down the Southern Border. There are 48 places where one can legally cross the US Border, not counting rail crossings. That border is the most heavily trafficked border in the world. There are some 350 million crossings in either direction annually. Mexico is our 3rd largest trading partner. Trying to close the Southern Border would be stupid. By truck alone $363 Billion in goods crossed the border. Add rail crossing and it's $535 Billion in goods! Those numbers are from 2014, it's even greater today. At the Southern border delays in crossing are costly.

    The focus of this new site seems to be to discredit left-leaning sites. If you look at listings for sites on the left, they use subtly judgmental language and go into detail about why they feel the sites may be controversial, etc. For right wing sites (like the Heritage Foundation, a long time, very right wing site) they have little to say and describe it in innocuous, neutral terms--they call the Heritage Foundation a "right of center" group, restate its nice sounding mission statement, and list the number of members. In fact, it has always been a far right group and there's no mention of its having been created by large corporations to manufacture research to support conservative ideas.

    In the WV Senate section you have 'Sen. Patrick Morrisey' listed. Morrisey is not and has never been a senator; he is the current WV Attorney General and is running against incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin.
  • Reply to: Group Called "Citizens for a Strong America" Operates out of a UPS Mail Drop but Runs Expensive Ads in Supreme Court Race?   10 months 2 days ago
    The mailer I recently received in the mail sent out by Citizens for a Strong America is so misleading I thought I should try to find out about CFASA. If this group truly is for a strong america they would disclose who they are and where their money comes from. They totally discredit themselves by sending out propaganda and then hide behind a fake organization. This should be illegal and those responsible should be exposed. All candidates for all offices in South Dakota are honest people - much more honest than the group Citizens for a Strong America. Makes you wonder who is feeding them money, like maybe from overseas or are they just a money laundering organization that works for the highest bidder? It would be interesting to see if they campaign against Democrats as well as Republicans?
