Getting rid of wild horses and burros apparently is a top priority of our precious government, but rounding up the criminal invaders—and keeping them out—is not.
Are there other options for protecting the American people? Consider these data:
- 2,000 miles of border to defend
- $10,000 for a gas operated, belt fed, automatic rifle
Five billion dollars would buy 500,000 rifles (5,000,000,000 divided by 10,000), enough to put one every 21 feet on the border (2,000 times 5,280 divided by 500,000).
That’s way too many. One every 300 feet would be adequate, which means 35,200 rifles should be ordered immediately (2,000 times 5,280 divided by 300). Cost would be $352 million (35,200 times 10,000).
Liberals have offered $1.3 billion for border security so this is well within their budget.
Roughly one billion dollars would remain after they cut the PO.
The fence would be six to eight feet high, just enough to slow down the undocumented Democrats and increase the hit probability of the flying lead. Chain link would be ideal.
Assuming a cost of $50 per foot, the price for the ‘wall’ would be $528 million (2,000 times 5,280 times 50). Approximately $500 million remaining in the leftist budget.
Ammo consumption would be minimal, a few hundred rounds, enough to convince the murderers, rapists, drug runners, terrorists and socialist voters they’re not welcome here. Cost impact would be insignificant, not even the magnitude of a rounding error.
The final $500 million could be allocated to technology, just as the Progressives have insisted (for automation and surveillance). If a soldier sitting in a bunker on U.S. soil can take out an enemy in a foreign nation, these rifles can operated by remote control.
The inflow of Marxist supporters, some unwitting, some not, has to be stopped. Pay no attention to the national news coverage and imagery of poor, oppressed women and children confronted by racists at the border. It’s all theater.
Don’t worry, though, these measures will never be put into practice. The individuals charged with the safety of America are in favor of its fundamental transformation.
They become bolder as more illegals enter the country, and the veil is slowly coming off their plan.
The task for normal, God-fearing Americans is not to save the planet, but to save the republic, and its constitutionally limited government.
