It has been 709 days since president Donald J. Trump was inaugurated, and congress & oath-breaking judges are still blocking visa/immigration & border security reforms, & repeal of evil, unconstitutional, privacy-violating, national socialist ObummerDoesn'tCare.   Cut student, refugee, asylum, exchange, guest-work, green card visas.   Establish standards.   Conduct conscientious background investigations on visa applicants.   Terminate visa waivers.   Fence/wall all USA 🇺🇸 land-borders and improve ports to better track who enters and exits and when.

So, in addition to sufficient DoD troops to repel invaders, sufficient CBP & ICE officers to arrest them, we need sufficient medical personnel 👩‍⚕🸏 to test them as soon as they set foot on USA 🇺🇸 soil.

  "To set up [his] system of taxation in kind, Diocletian started where Augustus started: he made a census...     Diocletian's system gave birth to a monstrous bureaucracy.     The statement appears in many ancient texts that the number of tax agents was greater than the number of tax payers...     Farmers started to abandon their farms...     Unfortunately, Diocletian's new tax system could not work unless every body stayed where they were.     Land taxes could not be paid unless farmers stayed on their lands.     So to make the system work, the 1000 year tradition of freedom of movement of Roman citizens was destroyed.     All farmers, their children, & their children's children were bound to the land forever.     Totalitarianism was the final order of Diocletian's new order for Roman farmers...     [In Constantine's reign] the bondage of farmers was finally extended to workers & artisans.     The cobblers & all his descendants were to make shoes for ever.     His sons were to marry cobbler's daughters.     The final product was the complete enslavement of Rome's economic classes -- they became castes [in an attempt] to make the tax system work:     'The emperors of the 4th century, & above all Diocletian, grew up in the atmosphere of violence & compulsion...     They took their duties seriously, & they were animated by the sincerest love of their country.     Their aim was to save the Roman Empire, & they achieved it...     They never asked whether it was worth while to save the Roman Empire in order to make a vast prison for scores of millions of men.'" --- Charles Adams 1993 _For Good & Evil_

  "It used to be said that a man's home is his castle, in deference to the fact that at home one feels more secure & in control than anywhere else.     But increasingly in our culture it could be said that a man's -- & especially a woman's -- car is the place where freedom, security, & control are most deeply experienced.     Many people claim that their car is a 'thinking machine' because only when driving do they feel relaxed enough to reflect on their problems & to place them in perspective...     Cars can be personalized by a variety of means: The make we buy, the color, the accessories, & the music system all contribute to an at-home feeling in a vehicle that affords both privacy & mobility." --- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi 1996 _Creativity_ pg 143
