If that's your "I'm not a liberal" resume I have a :newsflash: for you... Voting republican doesn't mean you're not a liberal. Big difference between voting republican and being a conservative.

DT probably thought that would mitigate his disgusting post. I guess he assumes we are all stupid

You may not agree with DickThomas on his views on the wall but I hardly think his post was "disgusting". One thing about Republicans, we all do not agree 100% on all topics and do not walk in lock step like the Democrats.

Did you read that Trump tweeted his issued a contract to build the wall in Texas?

Trump Says Contract Awarded to Build 115 Miles of Border Wall in Texas

and

Trump brags about contract for wall in Texas, blames Dems for partial shutdown

Quote:
He tweeted Monday: “I am in the Oval Office & just gave out a 115 mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas. We are already building and renovating many miles of Wall, some complete. Democrats must end Shutdown and finish funding. Billions of Dollars, & lives, will be saved!”

It’s unclear whether Trump’s tweet means a new contract or an existing one.

As was mentioned in a previous post, the money will go into a general fund. Only Congress can appropriate the funds from the general account into spending for the wall. I am not an attorney but my personal understanding is that any money collected for donation needs to be spent on the specific cause. In this case - building the wall. If this guy cannot prove that the donated money was spent on the wall - he may be breaking the law.

Hope they go easy on him...

I think that considering mine fields and a standing 'Shoot to kill' order for migrants is disgusting, so we will have to agree to disagree.

Please do not conflate the issues. Migrants versus Illegal Immigrants. Most of us have no problem with legal immigration (to a degree). An analogy is the difference between someone being invited into your home versus someone trespassing against your permission.

Those Who Donated To The Border Wall GoFundMe Campaign Are Being Refunded. Here's Why.

Quote:
Unanimously, we have all come to the conclusion that:

-The federal government won’t be able to accept our donations anytime soon.

-We are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border.

...

-Our team strongly believes that we can complete our segments of the wall for less than half of the government’s estimated costs on a per mile basis.


The website for the new newly-established 501(c)4 is WeBuildTheWall.
