We would not be in this situation if President Trump had been re-elected. We need to know who we are voting for, not some numb-nut of a politician who makes promises he/she has no intention of keeping. Do your homework people!

Since January 20th, we don't feel safer. Idiots voted for, and cheated, to put in a senile, old man who is being manipulated by Obama 2.0. It is time to stand firm and resolute. Do not obey the mandates!!!

While I have at times in the past 20 years felt quite safe, I certainly don't today. I have no confidence in the current administration to know or be willing to take the actions that would keep Americans safe. I'm glad my hope rests in Jesus Christ and not in man!

On September 11, 2001, George W. Bush's promise that "the guys who knocked down these buildings will soon be hearing from us all" comforted me and eased the fear and horror I felt as I watched the towers collapse.
Watching the chaos in Afghanistan has renewed those same fears. Biden's words only intensified those fears, as the entire world sees the US as weak and without leadership. This not only emboldens characters such as al-Qaeda and the Taliban, but also nation-states such as China, Russia, Iran, and others. I believe the US is in for some very dark days ahead.

I was a civilian with the Harris County Sheriff's Office (Texas) on 9/11/2021. My office was on the east side of Harris County, where the ship channel and the massive chemical plants are located. We went from a quiet morning of your typical druggies being arrested to the thought that the next target would be those chemical plants. My deputies knew those plants up and down and all were called in to protect those plants. Since that time, I have felt pretty safe from a terrorist attack, until January of this year. At that time the new president decided to open our southern border in Texas. You will not believe who all that has been caught coming across that border. It is those that have not been caught are the concern. Now that Biden has turned Afghanistan back over to the Taliban, we now have to be concerned with the terrorists grouping in that country. No I don't feel safer now than on 9/11/2001.

No, I do not feel safer today than I did 20 years ago. Joe Biden and his Administration are weak, completely incompetent and corrupt. I have no confidence that this President or his Administration will do anything to keep Americans safe. In fact, just the opposite. The Biden Administration is for Open Borders (in order to get new Democrat voters to turn States Blue) and they have let hundreds of thousands of Covid-infected migrants into our country.
The Biden Administration has enriched and emboldened the deadly Mexican Cartels, who control the migrants and have let drug traffickers, dangerous gang-members, human traffickers and sex traffickers into our country and our local communities by the thousands.
Our US Border Patrol reports that Muslims from Africa and Middle East counties are now sneaking into America through our southern border, and they could be terrorists. The Democrats made sure we did not complete the Wall on our Southern border.
Senator Ted Cruz is absolutely right when he says the Biden Administration should NOT be letting thousands of unvetted Afghanistan refugees into America. Cruz says they should be carefully vetted in another country before they come into America.
Thousands of these Afghanistan people who got on American planes and came into America are NOT the vetted Afghanis who helped our military during the war. No, the Biden Administration left most of THOSE Afghanis behind and they are being hunted down and slaughtered by the Taliban. These Afghanistan Muslims that were brought to America have NOT been vetted and the Biden Administration is bringing them in to use for the Democrat VOTE. Period. They are being bought with entitlements paid for by our US taxpayer money and will be taken care of far better than American citizens and homeless military Veterans.
I also don’t feel safer now because America will be attacked in much more deadly and dangerous ways. Our enemies will use cyber security attacks such as the cyber attack that took out America’s Colonial pipeline. They now know how to paralyze and infect our cities’ computer systems with cyber attacks, and have already done so.
If our enemies take out our country’s electric grid, America is doomed. Our enemies can now attack us again with more deadly biological warfare weapons, such as Covid, and also infect and destroy our drinking water.
Under the Democrats, inflation and energy prices will continue to increase. I suspect our entire US monetary system will eventually collapse because our US Congress (including Republicans in Congress) are INSANELY spending so many TRILLIONS of NEW dollars, new dollars that we CANNOT possibly back with US security bonds. The foreign countries that hold so much of our US debt will CALL US on our insane debt and our American economy will collapse.
I have ZERO confidence in this weak, corrupt, compromised, and totally incompetent Biden Administration to protect us from any of these real dangers. So why should I feel safer?

I felt safe with Trump in charge. Now I know to trust only God.

As a retired Emergency Manager on a southern boarder state, I have had direct intel on boarder activity. Terrorists like the ones that attacked on 9/11 only need to come across the border from the south. Knowing what I know, I don't feel safe from another terrorist attack.

I feel like we are right back where we were 20 years ago but it is even worse now because the way Biden did this, our intelligence, weapons, ammo, aircraft, and other military assets were left behind. This enables the terrorists to know so much about our security and way of keeping them at bay. Now they can not only attack our Country, but do it with our own technology and weapons. Other Countries will join in and attempt to take dominance over us. We lost 20 years of military strength against our enemy. And our military are now very confused about what could come in the future with Biden leading the way. Such a disregard of loss of human lives.

We are in more danger than ever with the Biden administration, who supports the transformation of America into an a form of oligarchy where We the People lose everything and a few gain everything.
We must be diligent in our prospects for office, starting now to learn about and vet them. We must be diligent in ensuring fair elections with only voting on election day(except in rare cases), we must insist on small precincts that the grass roots can control, We must ensure only Americans vote and back law enforcement and our military..
If we could accomplish these few things we would be able to have a more secure country and be able to say We the People have liberty and prosperity for all certified American citizens.
