Politics by the lowest common denominator is dangerous and stupid.
President Donald Trump’s ban on seven countries is bad because a poor girl cannot come here for an operation. And someone will not be able to see his cousin anymore.
These two incidents are appealing to the bleeding hearts of lots of Americans when pushed by anti-Trump politicians. What is not said is that there are maybe millions of people in this world with similar or worse conditions then the two mentioned above. It is impossible for our country to save all those misfortunate.
Should we develop a bad people complex over this situation? We owe the rest of the world nothing.
We have given the world our money and the lives of our young men in wars to protect freedom for other countries.
In order to defend ourselves, we are right to shut out a few of the thousands of needy people from other countries. And we should do it without a guilt complex.
