Borders Are Only An Idea?

Written by : Gary Wonning

Someone once told me that borders are only an idea.

This was something she was taught in school, most schools, even the good schools are very liberal minded, I’m not sure if  the thought  was that we should all tear down our borders and make the whole world one big happy country, I never thought to continue the conversation at the time.

While it is true in many ways that borders represent ideas, every country has it’s own idea about how their particular country should  be run and governed, each particular country is unique in it’s thinking and ability to govern itself.

Most countries today are under some form of dictatorship or socialist rule.

That is their idea, not America’s. Our idea is to have  personal freedom to live our life as we please as long as we don’t infringe on the rights of others.  Our idea and theirs does not mix.

That is why we need borders.

Every country has a different idea about what life should be about.

Do we need to fight about it ? Of course not.

We can agree to disagree, and let it at that.

The beauty part about it, if we don’t like the way things are in our country, we can work for change , or leave, no questions asked

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.



  1. The only thing I can say in favor of your Leftist friend’s – why do you have one? – idea is that many national borders across the globe are not representative of the people’s within them because they were drawn by foreigners for foreigners, mostly during the 18th and 19th centuries,


  2. Couldn’t agree with you more Gary. It is about assimilation to the beliefs of our country. There is no doubt that immigration has made us stronger as a country; however, that is because traditionally immigrants have assimilated to the principles this country was founded on. The danger with immigration is when immigrants want to change our principles. This is why every country needs to control its borders, particularly the US, a country that believes in the individual gives power to the government and the government is our servant. Why don’t they teach that in schools?


      • It is a shame because all that seems to be taught is what a horrible country this is. There is no doubt that this country has had some bad periods in our history; however, we have fought and overcome those. This country and the people herein have done tremendous good throughout the world. It is very disturbing that the focus is on the negative and not the good.


      • For almost 8 years the liberals have been telling us have mean and bad we are until their convention when suddenly we are the greatest people on the planet. They are just saying this because they want to get elected again so they can carry on their agenda. We each need to do our part to carry the message you just conveyed. We can do it in our own way, we don’t all need to stand in front of millions , we all have a circle of influence, people we see every day. We just need to stand up for what we believe and make sure others know what that is.
