LaBoyteaux 2020–Nothing to fear but fear itself

Two men greater than myself have told us we have nothing to fear but fear itself.  Tonight I heard our President promote and appeal to fear of criminals, violence, drugs.  I hope Americans will not be sucked in.  The great majority trying to enter the United States on our southern boarder are poor people hoping for a job and a better way of life.  Or as Ronald Reagan told us, these are good people.  But we cannot accept them all.  We do need a secure boarder.  I have outlined my approach to these issues in previous posts.  We need to reject fear.  We need to reject prejudice and discrimination in any form.  And we need to end the cruelty of some current immigration policies

Further, we need to stop this nonsense of shutting down the government as political leverage.  The previous budget should stay in place until a new one is adopted.
