Isolationism, that is your answer?

Welcome to the new North Korea.

While I can see some international support if this idea were to start moving toward this goal (concessions by nations to try and bargain against this action, probably through monetary contribution) due to the fact that the USA is essentially the lynch-pin of the global economic system. I think the country would pretty much sign its own demise. The USA has a good amount of leverage in the financial and technology services markets, but we have dismantled most of our manufacturing capability, to cut ties with suppliers and manufacturers outside the US would be devastating.

As for the closing of the border I should imagine that you are mainly referencing the perception of illegal immigration through Mexico. I always find it peculiarly hilarious that the US populace hates the very people that supports it. We want cheap goods and services available, so we hire cheap laborers from across the border. Our society grows and we resent the fact that all the labor is taken up by foreigners but while we hate them for having jobs and earning money while other American citizens cannot we do not want to lose our cheap products either. Then we have the audacity to travel to Mexican resorts and luxury establishments and participate in a grotesque display of opulence, in the midst of the struggling populace. All the while telling them that we can't feel sorry for them and the should get a job. And now, we have individuals who propose that the best thing to do is kill those who support us by using lethal force at the border, or as some suggest using military force such as bombings on Mexico. Really, it would only take a small spark to set our own country ablaze with such action and the only battle cry we would have would be to greedily protect our privileged way of life for ourselves.

The Age Democracy is the people take our country back from Washington DC,all *) *) million gun toting American taxpayers need to march on the Capitol. The National Rifle Association is on board how about you. There are at least !one hundred million gun owners in this country most have more than one gun The military would probably fight with us then oppose us because the first order of business is bring all the troops back now with all our equipment no leaving anything Send enough troops to our southern border set up machine gun nests to warn and kill anybody coming across the border will be killed no exceptions. All foreign aid stopped, we will not give anymore countries money until our own house is in order. Then once we do that any countries wanting our help it will be a loan with interest no more handouts. Pentagon Employees will be cut buy one half ,all other wasinton employees will be cut also in half until a new congress is elected with term limits. No more lobbyist allowed in DC all their offices will be closed enforced by the citizens.All current Congress and senators will be let go no retirement or pensions allowed also all of federal former members of congress pensions will be stopped.
