A wall that started out being "around" $1.6B to build, with Mexico paying for it, is now $5.7B paid by taxpayers. The southern border is now a "national security emergency" that needs the wall built immediately. Wow, brand new intel?

A recent writer pointed out that the government should work for the people and not the other way around. They mentioned bad government for the past 50 years. They also brought up a good point about term limits, which I agree with.
