In this instance, it is completely legal to cross the border - even without documents.

Of course those of us in the US know that the world revolves around us.

However,

I don't see any rules requiring one member to validate the ideology of another, or concede any points of contention. There is no mandated adherence to "Political Correctness", be it the political correctness of the left-----or of the right.

Attempts to demand another member admit error will continue to fall flat.

There is no validation for much of the ideology on the right. Look at the gun problem and debt crisis they have caused alone.

Depends on what you consider as valid. The water is so dirty because of rhinos;who could define the conservative stance of today's Gop. It is valid to say we should stick to the principals that made this nation great. We have strayed from those principals on both sides of the isle.
We use to keep taxes down on business to provide a good climate for investment. People were working. Revenue increased inspite of lower taxes.
Now businesses go abroad because the investment climate is bad. Because of taxes and government meddling.
We use to have a moral compass after defeating Germany and liberating Europe. We were on the side of right and the world saw it. Now we make friends with thugs and the world sees that too.
We should all return to what is right and just. But people have strayed so far from those ideals that now many call good bad and bad good.
Even communism is taking hold in this nation. I can remember when that would not have been possible.
