This failed understanding of the Constitution and lack of knowledge when it comes to civics can be attributed largely to the educational system in this country. Kids today come out of school knowing more about the Kardashians than they do about who the first President of this country was or the system of government we all live under. We even hear many millennials spout off at the mouth about how this country is a “democracy” when in reality we are a Constitutional republic and majority doesn’t always rule! If kids and even adults understood how our government is designed to function they would realize that there are three co-equal branches of government, the legislative, judicial, and executive. Each of which is designed to be a check to the other creating a balance between the three.
Speaking in the Senate on March 2, 1953, McCarran said:
I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contaminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished. I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors.
However, we have in the United States today hard-core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies. Today, as never before, untold millions are storming our gates for admission and those gates are cracking under the strain.
The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United States. … I do not intend to become prophetic, but if the enemies of this legislation succeed in riddling it to pieces, or in amending it beyond recognition, they will have contributed more to promote this nation’s downfall than any other group since we achieved our independence as a nation.
There you have it! It doesn’t take a law degree to grasp the fact that our country has been facing issues with illegal immigration since its inception and we continue to face those same issues today. The problem today is that the Democrats and all liberals seem to cherry pick which laws they want to enforce and or abide by and which laws they simply disregard. This is why we are so lucky to have Trump in office. Trump clearly believes in the rule of law and is willing to hold those who do not uphold the rule of law accountable. The problem is we need to get the masses to understand that the rule of law still does exist and we all must be sure our leaders are upholding said rules whether they agree with them or not.
