If you & Flack were informed you would know despite NAFTA being signed nearly 20 years ago, Mexican trucks did not venture far into the US until last year.
But then again,"if".
Furthermore, if Texass seceded it would not be part of the NAFTA treaty.
Again, there is that "if".
I recall reading about how Mexican truck maintenance was so bad that they were banned from traveling US roadways for safety reasons. Maybe they've wised up lately and joined the folks in the 21st century.

Plus, those trucks most likely had hidden compartments carrying drugs and illegals(Obama voters).

The Misguided Search for “Natural Conservatives”

....It’s almost as ridiculous to make arguments that younger voters ought to vote Republican because youth is “all about rebellion and freedom and independence—things the Democratic Party preaches but doesn’t deliver.” Naturally, when one thinks of the contemporary GOP, rebellion and freedom are the first words to come to mind, aren’t they? The person making that argument hasn’t taken much time to consider why younger voters might recoil from a party that had a disastrous record at the same time that they came of age politically. If an age cohort started paying attention to politics for the first time at almost any point over the last twelve years, it shouldn’t be surprising that they wouldn’t be drawn to the party that presided over the debacle of the Iraq war, the start of a major recession, and the beginning of the financial crisis.

On a related note, to the extent that younger voters are interested in “freedom and independence,” what did the GOP leadership have to offer them in the last decade? Nothing. If party leaders had nothing to offer these voters, is it any wonder that most younger voters continue to hold the party’s disastrous Bush-era record against it? For many of these voters, the Bush era is all that they know of Republican governance, and they are understandably unwilling to support a party that seems to have learned little or nothing from that experience.

If you think the answer to any of the above us yes,. then you are dumber than I thought.
The truth, not that you know what that means, is that the recession drove unemployment to 10.2%.
Obama has brought that down & in the process created millions of jobs.
How is that creating victims?

The questions should be;

2 - Are trucks running across the border between Canada and the US?
The answer to both of the above is yes.

Preemies can survive after being born quite premature.

In fact, a preemie born after just under 22 weeks in the womb survived.

Take a look at that baby. Looks exactly like a child to me.

Parital birth abortion is killing a 9 month gestation baby in the process of being born. It actually IS a child.

My God, you are running in circles screaming how these women are rushing to the abortion clinic & having a doctor yank their babies part way out & stabbing them with scissors.
My God, Carol, you really need to get some professional help.
You miss the point. Obama did not vote to pass a ban on partial birth abortions while in the Illinois Senate. He was one of only a few who voted present instead.

Which is tantamount to voting "no".

He also made a statement on the Illinois Senate floor essentially saying the Born Alive Act would put the mother's decision to have an abortion in question if a baby born alive received medical attention.

He voted present on this vote as well.

My Take: When evangelicals were pro-choice

By Jonathan Dudley, Special to CNN

Over the course of the 2012 election season, evangelical politicians have put their community’s hard-line opposition to abortion on dramatic display.

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin claimed “legitimate rape” doesn’t result in pregnancy. Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock insisted that “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

While these statements have understandably provoked outrage, they’ve also reinforced a false assumption, shared by liberals and conservatives alike: that uncompromising opposition to abortion is a timeless feature of evangelical Christianity.

The reality is that what conservative Christians now say is the Bible’s clear teaching on the matter was not a widespread interpretation until the late 20th century.
