By the time the Roman Empire died in 476 AD, few noticed, few cared and few stood up to do anything about it. If you look at America today, exactly the same events that collapsed the Romans accelerate within our borders in the early part of the 21st century.
Rome was a Republic that morphed into an Empire. It began in Italy and quickly conquered most of the known world. Its power spread from the Middle East, Africa and most of Europe. Its armies numbered 300,000 soldiers that attacked lesser nations at will. But soon, the most powerful civilization on earth ruptured, bled and died.
Does this sound like the nation you live in? The United States was once a Republic, but today, our military bases penetrate as an empire in dozens upon dozens of countries around the world. Our president and Congress provoke wars on sovereign nations at will: Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq and potentially Iran. The United States morphs into world conquests without end. America hemorrhages with the same calamities that destroyed Rome.
In his brilliant book, "The Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and Barbarians," Peter Heather examines the exact cause of Rome's death.
He writes, "The Romans were deeply embroiled with war in the East the Persian empire. Emperor Valens was forced to admit Gothic hordes. All went well until food supplies ran short and tempers flared. From the Gothic War until the fall of Rome, continuous pressure from the Huns forced more barbarians into the empire. Eventually, the immigrants grew more powerful than existing Roman authority."
Two major conditions caused the loss of Rome:
- they allowed uncontrolled hostile immigration to dissolve the fabric of their civilization. Immigrants grew more powerful while exercising their own character of their cultures. They did not adopt Roman ways.
- Second, vast blocks of once Roman lands became foreign held and even the Roman population, once outnumbered, was no match for hostile immigrants.
For you history buffs, our 21st century situation at the Rio Grande River mirrors the Roman Empire at the Danube River in 350 AD. The Romans failed their country by not stopping the immigrants and as can be seen nightly, tens of thousands of illegal aliens swim or wade across America's Rio Grande on the border of Mexico
Fast forward to 2006. Today, well over 35.2 million foreign born legal immigrants live in our country and this number exceeds by 2 ½ times the 13.5 million that came to America in 1910. Since 1964, immigrants and their children have driven population growth in the US population from 194 million to 299 million. That's an addition of 106 million people in 40 years.
From January 2000 to March 2005, a whopping 7.9 million legal and illegal immigrants settled into the United States . Over half of those immigrants arrived as illegals in that five year period.
According to Dr. Steven Camarata, "Immigrants at Mid-Decade: December 2005," www.cis.org, 31 percent of adult immigrants lack high school diplomas. Immigrant heads of households utilize a whopping 29 percent of welfare programs. The average illegal alien household head costs US taxpayers $2, 700.00 in welfare benefits annually over and above any taxes he/she pays or does not pay. The poverty rate of immigrants and their children stands at 18.4 percent which is 57 percent higher than American citizens. Immigrants and their children account for one in four persons living in poverty. One-third of immigrants lack health insurance, which accounts for millions visiting ER wards at taxpayer expense as mandated by the Federal Government.
As the educational drop out/flunk out rate of 65 percent of illegal alien students in Denver Public Schools, May 2005 illustrates our national crisis-- the low educational attainment of immigrants results in low wages that causes millions of them to tap into welfare programs, crime, drugs, anchor babies and resultant public assistance. They bring us such rituals as female genital mutilation of baby girls, horse tripping from Mexican charros, cock fighting, dog fighting and Santeria from African immigrants, which is beheading of animals for sacrifice.
From the disease free nation we once were, we can expect even more consequences. Immigrants brought us over 16,000 cases of tuberculosis in the past five years, which spreads across our country. They arrived with 7,000 cases of leprosy in the past three years. They carry thousands of cases of hepatitis 'A' and that is only the tip of the diseases imported into this country by illegal aliens.
Take a peek under the human riptide tearing at the fabric of America. You've read the costs and consequences in my previous columns. If it appears I'm ear marking legal and illegal immigrants negatively, I AM in the regard that they no longer benefit our country. Why accept immigrants unless they help us instead of overrun and financially destroy our own citizens? Ignoring the impact to this society's likely collapse does not sit well with me. Each of you reading this column experiences these consequences in your town or state every day.
As stated, the two factors that destroyed Rome now manifest in accelerating numbers in America. Los Angeles , Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, New York City, San Francisco, Raleigh and all large cities suffer millions of immigrants. Uncounted millions of them cannot and do not speak English. Millions work under the table without paying taxes. Millions use our hospitals without paying. They immigrate but do not assimilate. They colonize in ethnic enclaves separated from Americans. They fracture our country.
A glance back at 10,000 fire bombed cars and riots of Paris, France in October and race fights in Sydney, Australia last month should have awakened Americans. However, much like the Roman citizens that laughed and cheered at the weekly games of slaughter in the Coliseum— modern day Americans swill beer while madly pushing their remotes and fill our football stadiums for the weekly mayhem on the gridiron. "It's happening in Paris, but that's not America," one guy told me.
Listen buddy, football is great but if you don't have a viable society, what do you have? Ask Nero and all who partied while he fiddled and Rome burned.
All the while, 7,000 to 10,000 illegal aliens according to Time Magazine, pour across our borders every night of the year… equaling 3,000,000 annually. They number over 15 to 20 million and there is no end to the line that grows by 85 million desperately poor added to the world yearly. Add another one million slipping into our nation legally each year and that equals a whopping 4,000,000 bodies. Remember: when the rate of immigration exceeds the rate of assimilation, it is a recipe for the destruction for ANY civilization.
If you do the math, at the current rate of legal immigration, in 44 years by 2050, we'll see another 44 million legal immigrants added to our country at the minimum. We'll add another 125 million illegal alien immigrants at three million sliding across our borders annually. Added to that, our own population momentum of one million added to whatever numbers of millions of immigrant births yields a horrific, and I do mean--a nasty future.
To bring it into sobering if not terrifying focus: Texas adds 12 million by 2025; California adds 20 million by 2035; Arizona adds four million by 2050; Colorado adds four to six million by 2050. What is the one thing those states lack? WATER ! Resource depletion eventually forces any citizen to conscious focus ! Why wait until the crisis manifests itself ? The USA adds another 300 million just past mid century. Did our immigrating all these people help the world ? Not a chance ! The world expands from 6.4 billion to a predicted low of 7.9 billion or a high of 9.8 billion by 2050.
Who then is in charge of the decline and fall of America? George Bush today and for another three years. He is worse than Emperor Valens. Congress is Bush's main accomplice. Together, they make Nero look brilliant. For the past 40 years, Teddy Kennedy's 1965 Immigration Reform Act 'Katrina-ized' our demise by opening the flood gates. Bush aims to deluge Mexico into America by destroying our border sovereignty. Much like the Roman games that killed over one million men at the Coliseum for sport, Bush distracts us with war games in Iraq and Afghanistan. He rules by fear instead of reason, i.e., mass distraction. He's broken our financial system with outrageous debt. He's exported our jobs to China and India. He's broken most of the U.S. Constitution into pieces worse than Humpty Dumpty.
Much like Rome, the great Middle Class of America suffers the invasion first hand, but much like Emperor Valens or Nero, along with the Roman senate, they ignored it until too late. All suffered the loss of their civilization at the end as the hostile immigrant invaders burned Rome.
If you can't see this thing coming, and most Americans don't, you will at some point. If you don't step up and speak out and take action, your children will pay for your lack of courage. If you think the legal immigrants in Paris, France were nasty, just wait until our illegal immigrants spring into action at some point in the future. It's only going to take a spark to set them off. The ensuing conflagration will place our civilization in the history books right along side Rome's.
