The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense

“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

One RINO Figured It Out. What Will It Take For Others To Get It, Too?

The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense.

Here's the Nonsense:  Moderate Republicans (what some call RINOs) understand that we face dangers from terrorism in America.  But they understand that we must be accepting of people of all types from everywhere in the world if we are to live up to America's greatness.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Like it or not, we are at war and it's now in our backyard.  At least one RINO has woken up, but what will it take for the rest of them to realize the danger we face?

Newsmax has published an article by RINO economist Larry Kudlow that was rather surprising.  It seems that Larry has woken up to the fact that right now we can't just have open borders anymore.  He's still pro-amnesty (you're not going to get a RINO to change entirely overnight), but right now he's agreeing that borders need to be sealed while we get control of the terrorism crisis that we are facing.  What will it take for other RINOs to follow Kudlow's example?

Kudlow writes:

"I know this is not my ususal position.  But this is a war.  Therefore I have come to believe there should be no immigration or visa waivers until the U. S. adopts a completely new system to stop radical Islamic terrorists from entering the country.  A wartime lockdown.  And a big change in my thinking."

Later in the article he says:

"My shift in thinking comes from a deep desire to strengthen homeland security.  Hopefully an immigration freeze will not be in place for very long.  But for now I believe we must do it."

Clearly the recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino has driven Kudlow and many Americans to be more concerned than ever for our security.

The way we live in America is changing as the threats are increasing.  Just this past Saturday 3 malls in various parts of America had to be evacuated due to bomb threats.

America is forever changed by that attack.  Of course, we thought America was forever changed by 9/11 yet it didn't take long for Americans to go back to their old ways.

Now, the terrible carnage in California has given a wake up call to a big time RINO who is pro-amnesty.  He's stoppedand realized that we're in a war and drastic action should be taken.  What will it take for others in America to open their eyes?

I hate to say it, but my guess is that many people's eyes won't be opened.  They are blinded by political correctness so much that when someone suggests closing our borders temporarily to protect our nation, their response is to utter something stupid about it being unfair to people.

Folks, we're at war and the protection of our nation and its citizens is foremost.  It's tragic to think that some people need disaster to wake them up.  But unfortunately some Americans are asleep and ignorant to the dangers in our midst.  Even the media who cover these events continue in their blindness as they embrace their progressive ideology and ignore what is before us.

I hope and pray that it won't take more disasters to wake the entire country up, but unfortunately many people let their ideology and political correctness keep them from ever having common sense.  And if it's one thing America needs right now, it's common sense.
