“You build bridges to those people who will work with you. You build walls against those people who would destroy you.”
To begin this discussion in the simplest of terms, there is a reason countries have borders, and it’s the same reason you have locks on your doors.
Put Beto O’Rourke or Bernie to the test; walk up to their home and enter:
- If the door is locked ask them why?
- If they refuse you entry, ask them why not?
- And if they turn you away then tell them you reap what you sow.
Not only is it essential to the rules of comparative politics that a state may only be considered a state once it has borders. They serve as a barrier of protection (most of the time), and in this case, the line that separates American property from that of her neighbors. To put this into perspective, a person who owns a house surrounded by a fence cannot deny the significance of having a fence around his or her property. It is something that distinguishes your property from everybody else’s. We can all relate and agree to the fact that a fence serves as a sort of unspoken treaty between neighbors and fellow American citizens, which and functions to separate groups or individuals from others. It also justifies property laws which coexist within our rights under the constitution. For example, it gives a perception of where someone’s property begins and ends. An example that would constitute law breaking and better portray the necessity for any border, is if someone decided to drive their car into someone else’s personal property or lawn. Without borders, the world would be chaos. How can you say a country should not have that? Every other country, including Mexico, has borders and thereby, effective border control.
Therefore, the denial of our own rights as citizens of America is an anti American attribute, and thus the decision to shield American rights from all creatures endowed by our universal Creator– simply– ain’t ‘Merican.
As for those who stand united in the American cause, stay in the struggle, victory is on its way thanks to citizens like you.
The future of all of us
in the PSALMS of our hands.

Closed Borders Promote Peace
Claim: Closed Borders Create the Venues in which Peace can Flow Directly into the hearts, minds, bodies, and souls of our posterity. On a much more Broadened world Scale, fire only survives when energy travels at the same sPeed, all the while intertwining with the air and water to survive out of the nothingness that could be, but isn’t. Thus, Light utilizes electricity to survive. In essence, all matter must connect to the twilight of the moon or the rays of the sun at all given times in order to survive in nature. Thus, positive energy stimulates sound, light, and water waves simultaneously to combat negative charges brought into motion by Way of wind and water force, this creates the laws of attraction which combines or UNITES these three elements. They fight for the light as a team, burning away the darkness while washing away the tides which shadow the disasters to come.
And since all of the elements of our universe are ever in our favor, Light over Darkness can and will justly prevail for all who Will It to Be. Nature is always on the side of the living creature and/or the inhabitants which Dwell inside Her Governing Laws.
I will argue the reasons why closed borders are fundamental in effectively Paving humanity’s Way towards their very Own Long Awaited Salvation; where HoPe, and HaPPiness are close in reach each morning we wake, and each sunset brings all such natural feelings into our universal cell bodies.
Just as our human rights to breathe oxygen and drink water in order to survive are shared by the commonwealth of all living things, our destinies cannot be restricted in any way, nor can they change or be set against our will.
Therefore, Your ability to feel all such emotions mentioned, those of which are only born out of the seeds planted by freedom’s statutes, are set in stone to distinguish these natural feelings. These basics are guaranteed to you forever, their function is to give you fulfillment out of life. That is, if you choose to be fulfilled. The great thing about liberty is having choices and free will to learn from your mistakes, or to not. The choice is completely your decision when one is guaranteed their divine rights, as long as those inalienable rights are secured by the Laws and system governing the regime the individual resides within. Thus, these laws governed by nature are your rights to cherish and hold onto. Hence, your innermost desires are not determined (in nature) by where you were born or who you were born to, your birthright as a living organism on this planet is to embrace your very own dream, just as water feeds light for growth and light burns fuel for energy to exist, health and radiance is deserved by both man and beast, fish and eagle, when Nature’s Laws are recognized, respected, and interpreted to be protected under written law. And this is Simply Because,
This Land Does indeed,
Belong to You, and Me.
At this time, I am hoping Americans on both sides of the “political” spectrum realize that borders are one of the the most crucial elements when it comes to defining the commonwealth of citizens. Borders determine a significant requirement which classifies the efficiency, security, freedom, and overall sovereignty of a nation-state. In other words, a state without borders is the equivalent to a vulnerable group of human beings lacking food, salvation, freedom to think and thrive, and ultimately stand no chance of economic prosperity, protection from enemies, and have zero eligibility to participate in any form of international business, trade, and/or personal growth in the long and short term.
First of all, Open border policies allow for the disillusionment of false promises, illegal taxation, and even government enslavement of citizens without an army, much less weapons to protect their own homes. Keeping freedoms here at home, welcoming newcomers means the credible people whom earn their country of choice’s citizenship, deserve access to live in the land of the free. Reforming proper U.S. Immigration protocols, according to the times, allows for others all over the world to stand as one, under G-d, for the people, of the people, and live in peace by the people. This function of government will inevitably allow the REST of the “people,” worldwide, to awaken and redeem themselves and posterity of their own cultures rights to exist.
Basically, we should all come together, right now, over liberty and justice for all. AS AMERICANS, we must all work to continue building the bridges which gap and connect all societies all over the globe. This notion is only possible through cooperative peace efforts guided by strength strategies & guidelines. Viewing History through the eyes of those whom established the laws which abide by utilization of protections enveloped into the natural order of all life highlight solid patterns of growth. Shedding this same light on one group of vulnerable human beings without true freedoms and without any hope, can protect another region’s integrity and interests, while receiving the most benefits out of life. A republic having the means to inspire peace began with the establishment of the U.S., and made way towards the invention of a free world market. We can blatantly see the domino effects these actions have on an entire civilization and how it can effect continents far and wide, for the betterment of mankind.
Moreover, the redemption of human and civil rights are only proven by the successful outcomes of only and all of the peoples’ revolutions, according to history. One must merely glimpse into the past and present of all of us. The outcomes of the American & Texas revolutions presented the possibility for Israel to come back to life as a free parliamentary democracy and now all 3 are sovereign on their own today. These revolutionary markers represent the strides and possibilities of how only those who are genuine in their intentions and careful in acquiring the wisdom required for the adoption of their own unique republic, can a peoples’ identity be restored, remain, and continue, in serving the world and benefiting in return. 1776, 1836, and 1948 are significant dates as they are the center pieces of freedom and revolutionary times we as citizens of humanity are living through now. Following in the footsteps of the foundations and ways of life of all three nation/states open up the doors of hope and cause the wings of freedom to generate across the globe. Such groundbreaking efforts and cooperation need to continue for the expansion of same and similar results. In the global arena, each state mentioned stands in their regions today as a reminder of the domino effects that cause American values and nature’s laws to come to life.. Infinite potential and security under the virtues brought by these laws are made quite clear to the rest of the world today. As one of those civilizations, it our duty as U.S. citizens to uphold these rights unto all generations to come. Standing firm into today’s world are the nations of hope which have grown out of the American root. In contrast, open borders are ineligible for keepers of this sacred bond, promoting peace being out of the question. A republic must have hope to survive domestically & spread abroad.
We must also define a few terms with examples to guide our understanding of the significance of the issues at hand.
Two principal foreign strategy-options are defined under the following terms, containment and engagement. The theory of containment differs from that of engagement when it comes down to the core features surrounding the functions of the “4 P’s.” The theory of engagement is desvribed as being centered around the “power” Great -power politics has always been and always will be a competition for Power.”  In other words, one must sustain their influence of power and sovereignty towards other nations all the time because peace is inherent to the greatest possible outcome, however, peace remains an uncertain variable no matter what and a country will not achieve or know these ends until the war is won or the battle has “settled.” In contrast, the theory of containment is stated as, “An alternative perspective which sees this great-power competition as likely but not inevitable, with history showing that Peace can be achieved when the most powerful states use their power to build order through institutions and other forms of cooperation…”
Strategic Distrust on American Side
My views line up with the theory of engagement. One could argue that the founders of our Republic were well aware of the prospect of peace, which could only be achieved in a society structured around peace through independence. Benjamin Franklin stated the following response to a woman who acknowledged him after the Constitutional Convention in 1789. She asked, “What have we got, Doc? A Republic or Monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” What good does it do for those who conduct foreign policy to ask themselves if they want to pursue a strategy of peace? His response should resonate in the minds of modern Americans who have seemingly become accustomed to freedom and all its benefits– lacking any realization or thought about the possibility that another empire could rise up above ours and swoon in to take it away. To be frank, peace is what our sights are already set on! Shouldn’t the question be how and when can we achieve peace in determining which strategy would actually work to end the conflict? Additionally, one must keep digging for a solution that would secure American freedom and national security, tomorrow– and for the future of the United States of America. On the contrary, the wise analyst must ask themselves the core, fundamental questions encompassing far more crucial questions our infant country faced at its founding so that we could be kept alive, strong, and free, for as long as strategically possible. In other words, in determining a foreign policy, a reasonable foreign analyst should begin analyzing which instrument to use in order to achieve and maintain victory, for now, and to sustain it for future generations to come.
Strategic Distrust on Chinese Side
The major problems with American foreign policy, with regards to the Obama term years, mainly evolves around the danger and risk which become greater in the long run if an administration chooses to pursue this “theory of containment.” A policy objective waging “peace” has no basis for threat analysis or strategies to gain influence– not the eyes of Communist China. Looking at history and the bigger picture, Communists wage war, not peace. They aim to secure the globe with Communism for their own personal gains and to maintain control within the politically favored few over the majority. Essentially, containment would actually invite the opportunity for our enemies to surpass us in strength and belittle our allies to the point of betrayal and doubts about their own country’s safety (under the umbrella of defense). Nuclear deterrence would fall into the hands of corrupt politicians interested in nothing but greed and their own benefits. At the moment, our allies are instilled with fear, regretting not having pursued nukes a long time ago– for the U.S. has never come this close to being on the verge of a promise they could not keep. Instead of looking at what non-specific ends we wish to achieve as an overall strategy, I suggest we ask ourselves the basic question of how will we defeat our enemy, and how we can “engage” this method into implementing a policy that will be destined to succeed for years and years to come, i.e. the long-run v. the short run. Claiming the peace strategy gets you no-run, especially when the leader of a country does not bother to keep their allies happy and enemies in check. As a matter of fact, President Obama could barely make one foreign trip-a-term during his entire sitting presidency of eight consecutive years.
An example of this failing method can be seen if one glances at our nation’s history: Paradoxically, the system arose in the aftermath of the outbreak of the Korean War, when the U.S. government was seeking to reassure its European allies in the immediate aftermath of the North Atlantic Treaty ratification. U.S. leaders also feared being “entrapped” by some of our Asian allies in a larger war not of American making. In that sense, our security treaties with Korea and Taiwan were as much pacts of restraint as they were defense treaties. Japan was the keystone of the entire system. The U.S.-Japanese security alliance was predicated on a grand bargain in which Japan renounced its past reliance on military forces and allowed an American defense protectorate based on the “nuclear umbrella” in exchange for generous access to military bases in Japan and a low international profile. It was a strategy of “dual containment,” directed against the spread of communist influence in Asia and any naive instincts to remilitarize Japan. Although the “hub and spoke” system lacked the multilateral integrated military structure of NATO, it also rested on the notion of forwarding defense and power projection, to reassure allies of the credibility of U.S. commitments and to deter aggression by the Soviet Union or the People’s Republic of China. Despite the passage of nearly 70 years and the enormous economic transformation of Asia–including the rise of China — the original U.S. alliance system remains largely intact and continues to underpin regional security.
In sum, U.S. bilateral treaties and security partnerships, backed by capable, forward-stationed and forward-deployed armed forces, remain the indispensable framework for deterring aggression in Asia and promoting peaceful development in the region
Further, leaders of a global enterprise cannot deny others the rights they’ve inherited, but they cannot provide a home for all populations of the world to raise their children. Bottom line, if an immigrant does not put in the work to obtain such citizenship, they do not yet understand what it truly means to be an American citizen, and even though all life deserves to be happy and live in the free, those who legally migrated to the United States deserve the protections and freedoms previously summarized, which means borders are an absolute necessity and U.S. lawmakers have the moral responsibility to uphold and sometimes reform these laws, for the purpose of the deserving immigrants who migrated into America legally.
Also noteworthy, is the true essence of the historic origins which set in stone the laws in which a ‘republic’ was meant to do. Benefits of governing a nation as a Republic can fit into any corner of the Earth. As free individuals, we must aim to allow others to cherish the values and the freedoms given to us, for nations world wide to celebrate freely within their own cultures, and I can make the argument for any region who gains the freedoms and rights to govern themselves, mankind may continue to become reformed in their own atmospheric well being, simultaneous in the rebuilding of other governments into democracies, the guarantee these same freedoms Americans and Israelis live by, can truly become a reality for the citizens living in any to-be-functioning-democracy around the world. These universal rights must continue to bring the universal laws of freedom and governance to the people by way of light. The flames which embolden such laws are responsible for the spreading of these wings lit by freedom and justice for all, aka governance made for, of, and by– the people.
Emphasis must also be shed on the basic ideas outlined within the founding doctrines of the U.S. constitution. “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” From the widening of the hope, outreach can be founded throughout all world regions. An individual and a nation as a whole, require some sense of the hope felt strongly today by American and Israeli citizens, founded by the victories of all peoples’ revolutions, i.e. also founded during the first decade the Republic of Texas became its own governing nation-state. State and human sovereignty is possible within all world societies, and can be uniquely represented by all democratic regimes, which, as history has shown, can and should be tweaked to fit the specific lifestyles all across the globe. Looking into the origins of democracy, capitalism was set into motion for the purpose of redeeming each and all nation’s identities, NOT to convert all ways of life to western culture’s living standards, but was originally designed and intended to cross over into all lands, for the happiness of the common wealth of each nation, made different in law according to the individual state’s resources, in all categories which maintain the notions for restoring peaceful governments within all universal rights to life. The guarantees outlined by free nations all revolve around the similar values, or humanity’s rights to live a life within the principles of hope and endless opportunity. This system of governance was not meant to control, but rather, to manifest this hope by way of justice being protected for humans to live the way life was created for. The ripple effects of American justice have already been witnessed in another part of the world, Israel has been the window which proves the lights of democracy to produce only positive effects throughout all such U.S. allied forces, whom have had the will to seek and establish genuine change. This change can be brought about only if and by the people’s desires, not by the tactics of politicians, and definitely not by dictators and/or monarchies. Rather, the success of freedom’s establishment in the past has been proven to flourish by and of the rebels in history. Today, the majority of the middle class citizens make up the backbone of all free foundations and world orders. A middle class is non existent otherwise, which is why the majority of all world regions are being enslaved by the powers who reign upon them by way of government enslavement. More significantly, hope is something no individual, state, nor country can live without. However, most of the world’s nations remain lacking in hope and are therefore living in the darkest corners humanity. Our universe and its inhabitants were born into an evolutionary world, where all life is meant to grow by way of the seeds which sprout soaring lifeforms.
Furthermore, to keep others in the dark by denial of your own freedoms your own ability to thrive, as well as the promise of these freedoms passed and secured unto your own posterity, cannot be regarded as earned personal virtues, by any means, if your only concern for these rights is encompassed by our own safe keeping and pleasure. In fact, it is immoral and hypocritical of one whose rights are solid in freedom, to deny their inherited freedoms unto the masses of the world– or those whom have no control over their destinies, much less the desire to hope. This desire is in constant effect and always being dreamed by millions of us throughout the human life span. Keeping this hope alive is up to America to distinguish and remind themselves for the rest of the world’s societies to continue growing alongside Her and already established allied U.S. counterparts, new and old, now and forever. Thus, maintaining restrictions for immigration laws is crucial, and the correlations between securing borders and civil rights are the human rights which universally fit us all. Categorizing on its importance classifies closed borders be written and carried out as a fundamental rule of law, which should be recognized as a universally bounded law of nature. This means these universal rights bestowed unto free descendants by their inheritance and/or legal immigrants by their will, must always be secured by way of recognition and proper implementation of laws encompassing the natural order of all life.
In retrospect, each and every nation state, home owner, business owner, and any other land owner in general, must have secure borders for the future stability of peace-keeping within, so long as responsibilities and duties of freedom’s descendants are upheld and acted on today. Thus, the inevitability of peace-sharing and all it entails will arise & continue to soar from sea to shining sea, forever and ever. That is, until our shared mission as American citizens, AND as citizens of humanity, is fulfilled.
In sum, secure borders are the keys which unlock the doors of prosperity and all virtues brought about by freedom. Therefore, anyone can aspire to become a leader or follower of these inherited laws governed for all standards of living beings, so long as good faith and work ethic is maintained, legal citizenship is most obtainable by those who follow the same prerequisites as all who make the American system of justice the melting society of dreamers and most successful Samaritans the globe has ever seen.
