Would you be willing to die to end illegal immigration?
I often think of questions like this while researching and writing about the subject of illegal immigration.
How about yourself? Just how much do you care about the issue? Is it just a passing issue for you that you sort of take seriously, but really aren't that concerned with? Do you believe illegal immigration is wrong, but wouldn't go so far as actually having to pay a price for it to end?
Well my answer to the above question of "Would you be willing to die to end illegal immigration?" is yes. I would be willing to die if it ended illegal immigration in this country.
That doesn't mean I don't value my life. That doesn't mean that I'd walk down a dark alley full of illegal aliens asking for them to shoot me either.
If I was sure that my death ended illegal immigration in this country and all the crime, suffering and other senseless deaths that come at the hands of illegal aliens in this country, then I would surely give my life for this country and its future without much thought.
If I ever should be killed I would hope that it is for my beliefs. For what sense is life if you live it constantly sheltering yourself in a cocoon of fear?
Digger, Good Question. It may not be so hypothetical as you think. I have been twice at the border with the minutemen. Mexican drug cartels have targeted people willing to stand off. That is fair play in their minds. Knowing this would I go back? Would you?
If it would further the knowledge of culturism, if I thought you'd use me as a martyr and it would ensure the survival of America, yes. Otherwise I think I do more good staying alive and publicizing myself.
It ain't so scary now that we should be deterred from going to our own border. But soon it may become a very real question. Its good to think about it now.
