Part 26: Coming mega traumas

The first 25 parts of this series dealt with environmental

I slap my jaw in distress realizing our nation’s president and Congress carry on their inane activities without a clue or action toward a viable future. A few visionaries like Tom Tancredo, Dr. Albert Bartlett, former Colorado Governor Lamm, Dr. John Tanton, John Rohe, Roy Beck, Barbara Coe and a growing army of Americans do understand, however, the power elites do nothing. Most Americans follow the president and Congress into our growing population mega trauma.
Governor Lamm, a man I know personally and respect highly,
In 2007, we suffer $8.5 trillion national debt, $789 billion
devastating war debt, 18 million unemployed Americans, 3 million jobs
outsourced, 1 million insourced and millions more offshored. We borrow $2 billion daily from foreign
investors to float our economy. Consumers suffer a gargantuan $2 trillion debt. Average credit card debt stands at $9,149.00

As you know, we suffered 9/11. Our prisons hold over 400,000 illegal alien convicts costing $2 billion annually. American citizens suffer death daily at the hands of illegal alien drunks, killers, rapists, MS-13 gangs and children molesters.

As shown by Dr. Tanton’s research in “Part 9: Crossing our Agricultural Rubicon”, as a nation, we no longer enjoy unlimited food production as our farmland diminishes with population onslaught.
As you read in this series, I have covered much more as to negative ramifications to our nation concerning adding 100 million people. It’s like looking at a beautiful lake that looks nice on the surface until you dive under the water to see rusting cans of nuclear waste, leaking cans of pesticides, chemical piles, wrecked cars, dead fish on the bottom and a host of other ugly realities.
Lamm in the 1980s saw
Lamm felt we might hold out hope with a brilliant new president who leads the country back to a sustainable future. In his book, fictional President Morgenstern (“Morning Star”) managed to balance the budget, paid of the debt and created means-testing for welfare applicants. Health showed improvement by prevention methods; pension systems overhauled; government regains borders; infrastructure rebuilt; economic aid limited to countries that helped themselves.
In light of what’s happening today, I am curious as to Governor Lamm’s projections in 2007. I see presidential candidates like Tom Tancredo, Ron Paul and Duncan Hunter that could change our disastrous course, however, I wonder if the American public can cut through the media’s “chosen” candidates touted for the presidency.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn warned, “Seen from the outside, the massive upheaval in American society approaches a limit beyond which it will become ‘meta-stable’ and must collapse.”
Even that famous Russian writer who lived here for a short time could not imagine the environmental aspect; nonetheless, he witnessed the social and historical ramifications.
If you look at what our president and Congress continue in 2007, I add “national suicide” via apathy as our ultimate destination. Most Americans resemble sheep following the one before them down a chute into the killing zone. No one takes action or tries to escape until they see the sledge hammer dropping toward their head. By then, it’s too late.
Every sign in this series points to environmental breakdown, population pileup and degraded standard of living. By adding 100 million people in 33 years, nothing will improve and everything will get worse. Like Katrina, you can count on the consequences if we don’t act today.
