- Thomas Jefferson proposed that every American enjoy,
"Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Back in 1776,
that meant food, shelter, a rich and rewarding family-life, spiritual awakening,
employment and creative expression.
- High-speed, high-stress life- is that what YOU want ?
- In the 21st century, another phrase becomes more important
in our high speed- high stress lives. "Quality of life" surfaced
in the American lexicon in the last twenty years. Why? Because we started
growing too much, moved too fast and suffered accelerating consequences.
- For those of you who remember the 1950s and 60s, no one
ever heard about gridlock traffic, air pollution, species extinction, global
warming, overpopulation, zip codes, cell phones, computers or drugs. Most
guys knew every make, model and year of our cars. Choices included
Chevy, Plymouth, Ford, Chrysler and some strange little Japanese import
called a Datsun.
- In 1965, Elvis Presley drove Cadillac convertibles while
John Wayne assured us that the 'good guys' always wore white hats. Jimmy
Durante clowned on TV while Frank Sinatra crooned in Vegas. Los Angeles
enjoyed Sunset Strip, Route 66 and Hollywood. California sported 16
- That was then; this is NOW
- Forty years later, California sports 37.5 million high
stressed, high speed, road raging, cell phone talking, grid locked traffic
victims, 1.5 hour commutes, air polluted, gang infested towns and cities.
That's for starters! California adds 40 million people by 2050.
- Would anyone reading this series say that the quality
of life in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, New York City,
Detroit, Miami, Houston, and our nation's capital- or any other multiple
million populated city- measures up to something envisioned by our founders
as reasonable and appropriate?
- This week, I spent four days in Washington, DC at the
<http://www.fairus.org/>www.fairus.org "Hold Their Feet to the
Fire" conference, where 35 national radio hosts and hundreds of their
esteemed guests (including yours truly) spoke to millions of listeners
concerning the illegal alien migration invasion. If I could get a literary
handle on the East Coast, I'd say, "too many people, too many cars,
too much noise, stinky, too many accidents and unbelievable grid locked
traffic"- just for starters!
- In truth, D C took my breath away.
- I am astounded at how people hit the expressways at 4:30
A.M., daily, to beat the rush hour. I jumped on the Metro Subway at Shady
Grove 30 miles out of Washington, DC. By the time I reached Union Station,
I felt like a sardine crammed into a tin.
- Unpleasant, unhealthy, obnoxious and insufferable! As
I stepped off the subway, little old ladies tried to run me over on their
rush to the escalator. I felt like a cork being swept away in a human
ocean of people. Every metropolitan arena features maddening crowds and
- The traffic within and around our cities grows to crisis
gridlock levels. What's the latest plan to alleviate the beltways around
our cities? Engineers plan to build second beltways around the first
beltways- some are already done!
- The future will bring more overcrowding, unless-
- Where does it all lead as we add 100 million more people?
What about quality of life? What about 'peace of mind ?' First, a reminder-
with thanks to Wikipedia;
- Overpopulation is the condition of any organism's numbers
exceeding the <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrying_capacity>carrying
capacity of its <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecological_niche>ecological
niche. In common parlance, the term usually refers to the relationship
between the <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population>human
population and its <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_environment>environment,
- Overpopulation is not simply a function of the size or
density of the population, but rather the number of individuals compared
to the <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_resource>resources (for
example, <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_production>food production
or <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_resources>water resources)
and "personal space" needed for healthy survival or well-being.
- Are these simple examples "good things?"
- Please, stop for a moment and close your eyes as you
consider our current dilemma. Have you noticed the little advantages we
lose as we overpopulate ?
- You must dial all 10 digits for local phone calls today
because of our massive population overload in our cities- some areas have
five area codes.
- Commuters added 20 minutes to commute time in the past
15 years. They can expect to add another 20 minutes in the coming 10 years.
It's not uncommon in many states for 1.5 hour commute times.
- In some regions you are already expected to make reservations
by lottery for our national parks- within 20 years, we will all be doing
that because too many people want to visit a limited space.
- For those who want to ride a raft down the Colorado River
through the Grand Canyon- that lottery takes 10-12 years to gain a permit.
- As highways overload with another 100 million people,
your chances of making it to and from your destination erode dramatically-
with more risk. Currently, 44,000 people die from traffic accidents every
year, and half a million are maimed to one degree or another in "accidents."
Those numbers grow exponentially as we add 100 million people.
- The "quality-time" that nourishes each of
us diminishes; we suffer that loss.
- I'm certain you can enumerate another 50 examples of
the loss of quality of life from your neck of the woods.
- Change can be planned-managed, and strategies chosen
- Wikipedia continues to help us as we allow the magnitude
and depth of the personal impacts to sink in here;
- In the context of human societies, overpopulation occurs
when the population density is so great as to actually cause an impaired
quality of life, serious environmental degradation, and/or long-term shortages
of essential goods and services. This is the definition used by popular
dictionaries such <http://m-w.com/dictionary/overpopulation>Merriam-Webster.
- Overpopulation is not merely an imbalance between the
number of individuals compared to the resources needed for survival, or
a ratio of population over resources, or a function of the number or density
of individuals, compared to the <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_resource>resources
(i.e. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_production>food production)
they need to survive.
- It is rather a situation of shortage of resources and
elbow-room that must be caused by population, and not by other factors.
This is because such an imbalance may be caused by any number of other
factors such as bad governance, <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War>war,
- Each human-crowding factor is felt by human beings as
an agitation, a gnawing and bothersome affect that is difficult to describe-
until you venture to a pristine natural area, and begin to breathe deeply.
Then, you remember what you really want, and don't.
- Please ask yourself; why are we choosing to drift aimlessly
into this overcrowding?
- Are we squeezing together to make room for the unfortunates
of the world who have overpopulated themselves into a squeeze-play of their
- Strategic Planning works!
- It may startle you to learn a basic truth; those nations
already manifest what we move toward. They planned no strategy for
gentle population balancing, and neither do we.
- What are we thinking ?
- In this fragile Republic that we call the United States,
we participate in a grand experiment. Until recently, the ride proved
fun. Of late, the elbow room to play diminishesalong with our creative-competitive
- Our family lives take a severe beating, unnecessarily.
- What can YOU do to shift the course?
- Is it reasonable to ask; when was the last time YOU dropped
in to visit the staff in the office of your Member of the U.S. Congress
to chat about rampant population explosion, and how that phenomenon harms
your quality of life? Did you plan your visit, and prepare a list
of "suggestions" to leave there?
- Your senator and House member entertain scores of visitors
every month- nice folks who lobby FOR more and more people to join us.
Why do they do that? Quite simple; because the members of the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce employ them to do that lobbying, and pay them well.
- You and your fellow-passengers in the "U.S. Section"
aboard Spaceship-Earth have a responsibility to "help" your elected
and appointed representatives to maintain an even keel. Without your
active participation, your leaders will sell-out to big business. You
respond, "They won't do anything!" Okay, then you run for Congress!
You become the change agent.
- How can you turn the horses and reign-in the unchecked
population growth? Is your 'peace-of-mind' and optimized quality-of-life
worth the effort?
- Do you owe that healthy legacy to your children?
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

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
6. America already has too many people and I support a
10 year moratorium on all immigration.

(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
To reduce illegal aliens in your community, you may follow
the course of action by Mayor Louis Barletta of Hazelton, PA. He offers
