I can think of several reasons why this is a bad idea, most of which have been mentioned by other Countable members.
First, remember Jade Helm 15? Remember the hysteria that little exercise caused?!
I do not blame people for not trusting the federal government, including Congress, but mostly Der Führer Obama! The whole Obama Administration is corrupt to the core! And Congress has done next to NOTHING to rein him in! That makes CONGRESS complicit in
1. all of his ASSAULTS on our rights - his blatant disregard for the U.S. CONSTITUTION!
2. all of his ASSAULTS on our national SOVEREIGNTY - doing everything he can to make the United States subservient to the United Nations and compliant with their NWO agendas!
3. all of his ASSAULTS on our REPUBLIC form of government - concentrating more and more power in the hands of the federal government, which our Founding Fathers warned us STRENUOUSLY against!
4. all of his ASSAULTS on our Judeo-Christian VALUES - pandering to the Muslim and gay communities at the expense of Bible believers!
5. all of his ASSAULTS on our national COHESIVENESS - pitting people against each other, dividing us into quarreling "tribes," just like those in the Muslim Middle East and Africa!
6. all of his ASSAULTS on our national SECURITY - degrading our military, funding our enemies, showing weakness to our enemies, while insulting and alienating our friends, allowing our country to be INVADED by criminals, gangs, freeloaders, refugees and TERRORISTS, and let's not forget all of the terrorists he's released from Guantanamo!
7. all of his ASSAULTS on our national PEACE AND TRANQUILITY - his inflammatory remarks causing distrust and hatred of our LEOs, coupled with his patronage of the Marxist Black Lives Matter group!
8. all of his ASSAULTS on WESTERN CIVILIZATION - supporting the efforts of nations like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey to conduct their HIJRAH to transform western nation-states, as commanded by the Qur'an!
I'm probably overlooking other ASSAULTS, but I think you get my drift!
Leave it to Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and all the other traitorous, subversive Marxists in America, and we will lose our freedom, our sovereignty, our prosperity, and perhaps even our very existence!
So, NO, I don't think this bill is in our national interest! I think it's a problem waiting to happen! Our government needs to REGAIN our TRUST before undertaking something like this!
