    So, killing Americans is fine with you. You agree with the Putin like attack on your own countrymen that Trumper is doing. Is this what you are saying?
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.

    You did not answer your lie. Of course, you know that too.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    According to the National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans can now expect to live 78.6 years on average -- a decline of 0.1 years for 2016 over the figures from 2015, which also represented a drop.That might not sound like a lot, but any decrease in life expectancy is a rare occurrence in a developed nation. In this case, it's the direct result of the opioid crisis that continues to ravage large swathes of the country.
    To put it in perspective, the last time there was a decline in life expectancy in the US was in 1993 at the height of the AIDS crisis -- and the last time there were two years of decline was 1962-63 as a result of a major flu epidemic.
    Worse, 2017 is on track to produce yet another decline in life expectancy, according to the National Center for Health Statistics' Bob Anderson. "We have data for almost half of 2017 at this point. It's still quite provisional, but it suggests that we're in for another increase" in drug-related deaths, Anderson told CNN. "If we're not careful, we could end up with declining life expectancy for three years in a row, which we haven't seen since the Spanish flu 100 years ago."
    Actually, seven of the top 10 leading causes of death in the US -- including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and influenza -- declined in 2016. But that was more than offset by a rise in deaths from Alzheimer's disease, suicide and "unintentional injuries" -- a category that includes drug overdose deaths.
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.

    We can begin by building that wall on the southern border, ending all immigration for the next forty years, then reassess the situation. Meanwhile, if you are using drugs illegally, stop. It seems using them might just kill you.

    Illegal immigrants entering out country is down by over 46%. The wall would take away money for health care for the Americans who are dying.

    Again, do you approve of only the rich getting health care? do you approve of killing Americans so the rich can get more money?

    You claimed President Trump reduced immigration. You lied. I would applaud him if he did. I would like to see immigration reduced from its current high level to something around 10K people per year based on merit.

    Of course, the Democrats want to import a permanent underclass.

    Legal immigration has not changed.

    The wall is essential to stopping the flow of illegals. If Americans are killing themselves it is their business.

    No, https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...n-40/98935926/

    The nation's Homeland Security chief said late Wednesday that illegal crossings at the U.S. southern border have seen "an unprecedented decline in traffic" that he says coincide with the president's new executive orders focusing on immigration laws.
    Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly said the drop -- as measured by arrests and people halted from entering the country at the border -- is around 40% for the first two months of the year. Typically, January and February are busy months for illegal border crossings.
    Trumper people said it. So, do you want to kill more americans so the rich can get richer of there can be a not needed wall at our borders when Russians and ISIS members can come here freely?
    If the Republicans will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them.
