What if I were to offer you a sure-fire investment that would, if implemented properly, guarantee to at least double or triple your money in 3-4 years. The investment is so simple and straightforward – you could be completely hands off. You would not have to do a thing. It would require no monitoring of a fund or stocks – not even a yearly review, such as a mutual fund or IRA.

Actually, yes there is, and we conservatives have been promoting it for years. It’s called building the Southern Border Wall and deporting the illegals already here. It’s been well established that the cost of illegal immigration to this country is north of $100 billion per year. And that’s just the normal governmental outlays. The $100 billion doesn’t include the cost of fraud being perpetrated on American citizens in the form of stolen identities or increased insurance costs and citizen job losses to illegals.
In January of this year CNBC did a piece on the cost of Trump’s proposed wall. They estimated the cost per mile of the wall to be between $2.8 million and $3.9 million. Okay – now let’s do the math.
First we’ll split the difference. This gives us a cost of $3.35 million per mile. We know the length is about 2000 miles – so 3.35 x 2,000 = $6.7 billion. That, my friends, is extremely reasonable, although quite unrealistic. This is government we’re talking about. If we double it, that will still be only $13.4 billion.
Senator McConnell estimates the cost at between $1…
