When one has something that is valuable, he will protect it. In some ways, the value of "something" can be estimated, quite accurately, by how well it is protected, or defended.
Look at Ft. Knox.
How about your local bank?
Each and every one of us locks his or her car, sometimes even when it is in our own driveway. I lock the doors on my house every night, and "patrol" each room, checking that the windows are locked. My house is valuable to me and I want to preserve it's integrity.

When I look at the utter lack of security on Nations southern edge, it makes me think that average Americans don't value what they have anymore.
Has America made Freedom too cheap? I think so, and for once, I hope I am wrong...
I'm afraid he isn't wrong. Apparently it's just not worth the effort for a depressingly large number of people to protect our nation. It makes me sad. And there seems to be no one in the gov't that has the stones to do what needs to be done.
