There is a Big Problem at the Border.....

.....and no one is addressing it. I never thought I would hear these words....listen....

Has the Mexican government forgot what happened the last time they started a war with us? From 1846-1848 we had a serious problem with the Mexican government, and it resulted in our occupation of the Yucatan Peninsula and acquisition of the southwest.

We should have peaceful trade all across the Americas, but military intervention and encroachment into our territory is a big problem.

Now this is clearly a case where the state is being exposed to danger from without.

What do you think should be done about this? If you were a governor of a border state, what would you do to protect the citizens of your state from this? From a libertarian perspective, what do you do when your state has foreign military agents in it?

Isn't this the true mission of the National Guard, to protect the state?
