Last week, a British school teacher in Sudan suffered conviction and prison for naming a teddy bear “Muhammad.” Local Muslims wanted to stone her to death for insulting their 6th century prophet. Riots broke out across Sudan. They carry 6th century mind-sets in a 21st century world. As in Iraq, any appearance of a republican form of government or rights for women won’t be tolerated under Sharia Law.
Fast forward to America: Not one Muslim participated in forming the United States of America. But today, over 1,000 mosques rise into the skies over U.S. cities where 2.3 million Muslims colonize America with their religion and 6th century rituals such as female genital mutilation. A look toward Europe shows Islam infiltrating civilized nations like England, Belgium, France and Holland—but then turns them into seething infernos of racial tension, ghettos and riots.
“We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup, and history has few examples of ‘diversity’ creating a stable society.” Governor Richard D. Lamm
Today, at taxpayer expense, we build Islamic footbaths for taxi drivers at airports and colleges while political correctness does not allow Americans to enjoy any form of Christian expression in their own schools or public buildings. The politically correct crowd changed “Merry Christmas” into “Holiday Season.” Note the irony in all this!
Additionally, the American public sits "numb" to the invasion of 20 million illegal aliens. This president and Congress refuse their sworn duty to secure America’s borders and revoke anchor baby instant citizenships.
Last month, authorities caught 19 Chinese illegals in Wickenburg, Arizona. China refused to take them back, so this government issued an order to not detain them or any other illegal Chinese. Pause to grasp this!
This president attempts to change U.S. "sovereignty" to a globalist one world order—a socialist state with open borders. A total of 54 Mexican consulates aid illegal aliens in major cities. At least 31 sanctuary cities throughout America provide safety for illegal aliens while the Congress attempts amnesty and a fast track to citizenship for illegals. Governors, state legislators, city mayors, city councils and many police agencies refuse to rid our nation of illegals.
Yet, millions of illegals arrive un-checked--bankrupting schools, hospitals, emergency rooms, welfare programs and entitlements paid for by American citizens.
This country allows another country’s language to take over in front of its eyes. Seymour Lipset, the renowned historian, said, “The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Current day France stands as a formidable precursor for America.”
All the while, Americans recline dumb and apathetic on their sofas while gazing at inane NFL games, drinking beer and gobbling pizzas.
With continued lack of participation, America’s best days fade in her rearview mirrors. With 460,000 military personnel in 120 countries, America resembles an empire. Every empire in history decayed from within. In the early 21st century, America hobbles off the world stage--overrun by the hordes at the gates, indolent world conquests and bankrupted economically with power that no longer enjoys relevance.
It’s been said that, “Dying empires cling until the very end to the outward trappings of power. They mask their weakness behind a costly and technologically advanced military. They pursue increasingly unrealistic imperial ambitions. They stifle dissent with efficient and often ruthless mechanisms of control. The creeds and noble ideals of the nation become empty clichés used to justify acts of greater plunder, corruption and violence. By the end, there is only a raw lust for power and few willing to confront it.”
Bush’s war proves such plunder. The “War on Drugs” manifests unending meaninglessness. This nation’s debt spirals into the dungeons of despair.
The most damning signs of this degrading republic manifest faster if Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes president. We will see the presidency controlled by two families in the last 24 years. In that time, the middle class vanished while the top one percent amassed more wealth than the bottom 90 percent. That renders signs of an oligarchy in power.
Common citizens stagger daily under massive debt while funding hundreds of military bases worldwide while one president declares wars on nations 10,000 miles away. In the meantime, democratic freedoms diminish (Patriot Act) in the name of national security. U.S. infrastructure erodes as millions of illegal foreign men, women and children fracture education systems, health care, prisons and public housing.
Job wise, congressional leaders outsourced, insourced and offshored three million American jobs in the past 10 years. Detroit lost 60,000 manufacturing jobs in the past 24 months. Congress didn’t blink!
"There has been a glaring and unfortunate display of incompetent strategic leadership within our national leaders," said retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, the former commander of forces in Iraq to the New York Times, adding that civilian officials have been "derelict in their duties" and guilty of a "lust for power."
The United States dropped from the world's largest creditor to its largest debtor. The U.S. military-industrial complex spends as much money annually as the rest of the military power in the world combined. All the while, Social Security and Medicaid services sink into financial chaos.
Last Tuesday, President Bush vetoed a domestic spending bill for education, job training and health programs, but signed another bill giving the Pentagon $471 billion for the fiscal year that began October 1st.
What do our young men die for? Short answer: Halliburton, Big Oil, Blackwater and other corporate elites that feed off the Iraq War like jackals on a carcass.
Our government resembles a Hobbesian ethic of individual gain at the expense of American citizens. No one wants to die for a Halliburton or Exxon, but Bush enjoys his own volunteer private army. It’s the perfect mercenary force. Thus, 99 percent of Americans remain unaffected by American kids dying in Iraq.
We allow our president and Congress an endless cycle of war and conflict that drains away the morality, ethics and dreams of our founding fathers.
Rather than speeding into the 21st century--out of oil, with wrecked environment, scarce water and depleted resources—we need exponential numbers of enlightened citizens intending, then creating new workable paradigms. We need reasoned nationalism and fair benefits for OUR citizens. We invite ‘conscious capitalism’ that benefits us, our environment and other countries in our world.
We must move toward a stable, sustainable and viable future with a roadmap and plan. Since you prove one of the enlightened citizens, what are your ideas for an American future that meets with expectations and opportunities for your children in a sustainable world? What issues must we address and solve? How would you solve them? Write me: firstname.lastname@example.org
