What Political Parties Have Gotten Wrong !


The road to unity in this country is found in what makes this country great. Neither Republicans or Democrats have learned that the Best of America is only when we can look at our differences with respect and understanding. It seems over the past few decades the mantra of both political parties has been who can shout the loudest, who can have the best soundbites and who can be the most efficient in blaming those on the other side of the aisle for those things that we need to improve on. Just the narrative of which party “controls” the House or the Senate give us the impression that politicians are not working for the American People but for their own power. The Democrats had control of all three branches of government during President Obama’s first two years and the Republicans had the same during President Trump’s…and the cycle continues. The result has been ObamaCare that we are still trying to debate and fix and the Tax Cut which will now be debated and modified. Attacking the opposing party for their vision is the same as attacking ½ of the population since our country is fairly divided on its thoughts and ideas. If we stop giving coverage, time, and energy to those on the extremes and focus on those who can have a civil discussion, those who respect our differences, and those who will work with what we have in common as opposed to what we differ on then America will once again put its hate, anger, and division in the past and continue to move forward on all levels and not just the agenda of whichever Party is in “Control”. God Bless America.


Illegal Immigration Has A Ripple Effect!

Immigration18There is more to the “Illegal Immigrant” debate than just politics. There is a real long-term, ripple effect when adults and children, who are in our country illegally, become part of our society. When they first arrive, if known, they are processed by border patrol, ICE and other State and Federal Employees. These employees are paid with State and Federal Tax Dollars. These immigrants might need immediate attention for health care and nutrition…also a cost. For those that stay, pending a review or enter in hiding, they then become part of society, which means their children attend school. Each child that takes a seat at a desk also takes funds/supplies from an American Child and those here legally. Many of the illegal children may need assistance with a free breakfast/lunch program etc. again funds that have to be used..also, every seat filled puts a strain on the child/teacher ratio. Democrats are against School Vouchers and complain that schools need more money but are in favor of those things that are putting a strain on the financial burden of school districts. For Adults, many illegal immigrants will drive cars without insurance. Texas has over %15 uninsured drivers on the road with a large portion being illegal immigrants. Texans that pay for insurance end up paying a higher price to carry coverage for Uninsured Motorist Coverage. Texas is one of the three highest states in Auto Insurance premium.  Health care costs are also affected. Many Hospitals have to treat people in Emergency Rooms whether there is insurance or not. They have to make up the cost somehow. Those that do pay may see things like $30 Band-Aids and other ridiculous costs. Whether the state or local government reimburses these hospitals for any of the cost it is still with Tax Payer money. We should never be a society that does not have compassion nor should we refuse to help someone who is in pain or need. The only compassionate/fair solution is To Limit those that come into our country in the first place. If we can control our borders and control the flow of immigration then there will be a positive effect on many aspects of our society without losing compassion for those that are in need.
