As you read this sobering if not depressing series on America's future as it adds 100 million people by 2040, do you feel alone? Lost? Hopeless?
Do you feel betrayed by President Bush and senators like John McCain, Arlen Specter, Teddy Kennedy, Joe Biden, Barbara Boxer, Hillary Clinton and the rest who voted for S.B. 2611 last year? Can they be that stupid? Why do you think they voted for increasing legal immigration from 1.1 million to 2.0 million annually?
I asked a friend of mine, Jack Jobe in Denver, Colorado. He said, "Denial! It's the easiest emotional response for humans. Look at India! They're headed from 1.1 billion to 1.55 billion by 2050 while they haven't addressed their horrific human overload of problems even today. Examine California! They increase from 37 million to 79 million people by mid century, and not one of their leaders blinks at the catastrophes they face."
It's frustrating to be aware of America's Titanic-like course; however, you do not stand alone. Many great minds and patriots rise daily to make a stand. Many represent America's finest academics. Others represent average Americans with uncommon determination like Chris Simcox, Barbara Coe, Jim Gilchrist, D.A. King, William Gheen, Roy Beck, Dr. John Tanton, John Rohe, Peter Brimelow, Terry Anderson, Tom Tancredo, Barbara Jordon, Daneen Peterson, Andy Ramirez, Lupe Moreno, David Durham, Dr. Albert Bartlett and thousands of others. Some speak while others write. Still others work behind the scenes using their unique talents like Don McKee.
They possess one goal: stop America from allowing our elected leaders to destroy this country with massive, unending population growth that adds 100 million people in three decades. They strive to bring about a sustainable, viable future for all Americans.
What do they say?
"Can you think of any problem on any scale, from microscopic to global, whose long-term solution is in any way aided, assisted, or advanced by having larger populations at the local level, state level, nationally, or globally? Can you think of anything that will get better, if we crowd more people into our towns, cities, states, nations, or world?" Dr. Albert Bartlett, Colorado University
Can you? Can President Bush? Can any governor? Can any senator or House member come up with one, single advantage of adding millions of people to America? How will adding millions of people make America better?
"The disappearance of nations would impoverish us no less than if all men had become alike with one personality, one face. Nations are the wealth of mankind, its collective personalities; the very least of them wears its own special colors and bears within itself a special facet of God's design." Alexander Solzhenitsyn
We love our families because we identify with them. We love our nations because they represent our identity. To lose one's nation is to lose one's self. Our language and our culture define and sustain us. To lose them works against the human condition. One look at France, Holland, Belgium and England shows you the demise of their countries into turmoil. One week visiting Los Angeles shows you the destruction of American identity.
"The United States is not some sort of international Kleenex. I argue that borders are as essential to free societies as property rights are to free economies. When we have a clear definition of what a citizen is and what his rights and responsibilities are, we are going to maintain a civil society, an open society, a liberal democracy." Peter Brimelow author of "Alien Nation"
"Sustainable growth is an oxymoron." Garett Hardin "Tragedy of the Commons"
As you have seen in this series, we cannot sustain growth any more than cancer cells can overwhelm their host. At some point, the cancer cells and the host die.
At some point, all of humanity and our fellow creatures face Nature's response.
"You Americans live an artificially high standard of living. It's time you drop down to the poverty levels of the rest of the Third World. Immigration and population will do that to your country given enough time." Mr. Singh of Madrass, India
Do we want to grow the United States to one billion people so we can mirror the Third World? What will that prove?
"The modern plague of overpopulation is solvable by means we have discovered and with resources we possess. What is lacking is not the sufficient knowledge of the solution, but the universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem for billions of people who are its victims." Dr. Martin Luther King in 1966
When he accepted the Human Rights award in 1966, King understood our dilemma. Overpopulation causes greater and more profound poverty. It overburdens and overwhelms nature.
"Each person in the USA impacts the environment equal to a low of 10 and as high as 33 times that of a person in a Third World nation. Therefore, the US population at 300 million equals in many ways a minimum impact of 3 billion people in environmental consequences." Royal Academy of Sciences
"Surviving like rats is not something we should bequeath to our children." Jacque Cousteau, underwater explorer
"More than 90 percent of the increase of US energy consumption from 1970 to 1990 was due to population growth. The USA continues losing more than one million acres of farmland every year to urban sprawl." Mark W. Nowak
How long can we feed ourselves by paving and cementing our farmland? How long can we survive by fertilizing, spraying poisons and contaminating our dwindling cropland? How can we water the crops as the underground water supplies dry up?
This series connects the dots and offers a bridge of reality to readers across the United States and the world. As you can see, we face a pretty sobering future, if, and that is a big, IF, we continue on our path of 'denial'. Denial is a killer. If you walk into a lions den thinking he won't harm you, you are in denial. If you think you can walk 10 miles across a desert with only one quart of water on a blistering 110 degree day in Arizona, you're in denial. If we as a nation pretend that the next 100 million people won't be a problem, we're in denial. If our leaders think this population dilemma will work itself out, they stand nostril deep in denial. Just like the man in the lions den or the woman walking across the desert, denial will kill this civilization.
Since we can't count on Bush or Congress, we must act. The hour is late. The fat lady warms up, but she hasn't sung, yet.
What you can do for a better future for your country:
A republican form of government is not a spectator sport. It means you must jump in, roll up you sleeves and take personal and collective action. Of course, you could let a dictator take over and do everything for you, but that path would give you Cuba, China, North Korea and other unsavory examples.
To stop Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid from giving an amnesty, take action.
CALL Nancy Pelosi: Washington, DC - (202) 225-4965
San Francisco, CA - (415) 556-4862 ; Email Nancy Pelosi
firstname.lastname@example.org ; Email form for Nancy Pelosi; http://www.house.gov/pelosi/contact/contact.html
Senator Harry Reid: 202 224 3121 in Washington DC
775 686 5750 in Reno, NV;
1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20500
Switchboard for live listener: 202 456 1414
We must 'sour the milk.' Bring out your points in the call:
1. America cannot support another 100 million people added to our country in 34 years, i.e., water crisis, resource depletion, air pollution, gridlock, loss of quality of life, etc.
2. America cannot support lawbreakers being given citizenship.
3. America must maintain our English language.
4. America wants only legal immigrants who play by the rules and speak English.
5. America's working poor deserve a chance at jobs taken by illegals.
6. America already has too many people and I support a 10 year moratorium on all immigration.
7. Americans must maintain our schools for our children.
8. We can no longer tolerate 350,000 birthright citizens (anchor babies) annually that subtract from our own citizens.
9. Attrition through enforcement by stopping their ability to wire money home, obtain rental housing and jobs.
10. An amnesty failed in 1986, and it will only be worse today. We're being displaced out of our jobs and out of our own country. Call with relentless and never-give-up passion.
To reduce illegal aliens in your community, you may follow the course of action by Mayor Louis Barletta of Hazelton, PA. He offers a bomb proof ordinance that takes business licenses away from those who hire illegals. He legally halts landlords from renting to illegals. Without work and without housing, illegals cannot stay in your community. Check out his website for instructions: www.SmallTownDefenders.com/public/node/6
