I just sent an email to his office. I know it's not much, but more people need to let the officials know when we're upset. I'm sure he knows by my response that I won't support him or vote for him.

Actually, our federal government is failing us so badly on so many fronts, it's hard to decipher just which is the biggest failure.

But a lack of border security has contributed greatly to many of our other national problems such as over-crowded prisons, soaring healthcare costs, and the national debt. That said, we currently have a bigger problem with the illegals who have already crossed our borders and face little consequence. Actually, they're facing the reward of amnesty, which is now a huge magnet for more illegals to cross the border, once in the interior, they're a protected class.

More border patrol agents will do nothing so long as existing laws are not uniformly enforced, and the respect for our rule of law is plummeting in large part because of selective enforcement that's politically motivated.

As congress discusses the details of amnesty, how many million more illegals will cross our borders and get in the line?

What happens to our country when most people lose all respect for the "rule of law" that is no longer?

As with any plumbing leak, you first have to stop the flow before you can clean up the mess.

Why oh why then don't we secure the border before we start trying to legalize anybody that's already here??? I'll tell you why; the lying scumbags in Washington have no intention of solving the problem!

I'm afraid we're getting ready to find out.

We have to find some true conservative candidates to run against Corker and Alexander. They are nothing but RINOs. 90s Democrats. Totally worthless.

Conservatives have to band together during the PRIMARY. NOT the election.

But the last decade, we've shot ourselves in the foot during the primary by nit picking the best candidates, knocking them out of the races and allowing the media and democrats decide our candidate.

Beat them in the Primary and stop whittling down the candidates to the RINO that the dems say scares them the most.

Exactly! We have to stop running around trying to stamp out all the fires the progressives set and instead go after the arsonists. Start locally and work our way up. Get good people elected who will resist and fight for limited government.

The only problem is that our state legislature is in the process of taking our right to choose a candidate in a primary. If I'm not mistaken, the TN State Legislature will vote next spring to allow State Representatives to "select" the candidates to run in the General Election for US Senate. Basically our state reps will be chosing whom will run for US Senate in the general election. If they pass this we ARE screwed. Sponsored by Frank Nicely if I'm not mistaken.

Not if we elected conservatives at the state and local level as Fishboy mentioned.

We can't elect liberal city council, liberal representatives, liberal school boards and liberal Governors and then a conservative Senator or two and expect the problem to be fixed.

Why is "Community organizers" successful? Because they start at the bottom, infest the entire structure all the way to the top. They build a foundation and get people involved. It is a VERY organized effort.

Conservatives expect to win an election or two and make it all "OK". It doesn't work like that.

Until people get mad enough to repeat 2010 across the spectrum, expect disappointment when it counts.

If we could revoke the 17th amendment, Senators would/should be appointed by the state legislature to begin with. Their job is the be the voice of the state, not the people. That is what the house of representatives is for.
