“The laws should be rigidly enforced which prohibit the immigration of a servile class to compete with American labor, with no intention of acquiring citizenship, and bringing with them and retaining habits and customs repugnant to our civilization.” – Grover Cleveland – First Inaugural Address – Wednesday, March 4, 1885
The substantial number of messages sent by readers of my article, “It’s Time To Standup – Put Up – Or Shutup” was both unanticipated and telling. It pointed up a rapidly building and simmering resentment and anger in regard to 1. The impact of illegal aliens upon the nation, and 2. the encouragement of the illegal entry of huge numbers of aliens by George Walker Bush and a congress that aids and abets his treasonous activities. The delivering of the country, on the domestic front, to the destructive forces of a continuing and deadly invasion of illegal aliens and the equally deadly pursuit of a resource wasting belligerence on the international level has set the stage for an unprecedented conflict between the people of the nation and the government that ignores their concerns in regard to these issues.
Mr. Bush follows the dictates of the corporatists and ignores the wishes of the people, and in connivance with a delinquent congress he has succeeded in pushing the people to their limit by aggressively agitating for open borders, unabated immigration, and a North American Union. The fact is that both he and the congress have succeeded only in removing from among the people any commitment, or persuasion, for even legal immigration. The oft quoted and written sentiment, by maudlin advocates for unrestricted immigration and amnesty for law-breaking illegal aliens, of send us your tired, poor, and huddled masses is falling on deaf ears and blind eyes.. This is not the nineteenth century, and we have no dearth of people.
Thanks to the illogical and stupid thinking on immigration by our so-called political leaders we are experiencing a totally unnecessary population explosion that has severely and negatively impacted the quality of life for the people of this nation.
The people, who foot the bill for the tremendous waste of our resources by Mr. Bush and company, are showing an increasing intolerance for the international intrigues of the president, and they feel no obligation to fund the welfare for illegal aliens, provide free medical care for the same, or to educate their children. Too many legitimate U.S. citizens are being bankrupted by the astronomical cost of medical care, the rampant inflation, and the explosive out of control educational costs in this country to entertain any inclination to support the welfare of law-breaking illegal aliens. The welcome mat is not just wearing thin, it is entirely worn through.
If my mail is any indication illegal aliens are persona non grata even with a great many of our U.S. citizens of Latin American heritage. The president has managed to further irritate an already peeved public by proclaiming that those who are opposed to the pending sell-out to amnesty and the legalization of law-breaking aliens in the senate, “Don’t want what is right for America.” Sometimes the ignorance of the man and his arrogance amazes me. And I am finding out that a great majority in this country are similarly fed up to the ears with the president’s overbearing and condescending political assertions, and his unbridled control of the nation’s course.
Readers from across the nation wrote to register their frustration with the impact that the inflow of hoards of illegal aliens has wrought in regard to their personal lives and the lives of their families. But, it was those from the Southwestern states, particularly Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and California, who were most outspoken in their comment. The people in these states are, in reality, virtual hostages of illegal aliens, and to say that they are angry is an understatement. The deference by the government for interloping aliens over American citizens has infuriated those who have had their communities and their neighborhoods transformed into bastions of unfriendly, mostly Mexican, aliens. These have hijacked their neighborhoods, increased their local taxes, overloaded their schools and hospitals, and debased their culture. The many letters that I received from readers in these states were uncannily alike. Following are several examples:
“When I moved here (to Nevada) about 12 years ago, my neighborhood was equally balanced by race, now it is 95% Hispanic The prevalent language is Latin American. Most of the Hispanic neighbors have 5 or more cars parked on their front lawn or have taken all of the parking spaces in front of the homes of other residents, and they party all night every Saturday in their garages on their driveways. In the public schools many of the schoolbooks have been edited to pander to the Hispanics. Press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish, what bullshit! And now with the North American Union and the Super highway from Mexico-thru-America-to-Canada, and the planning for an Amero currency, things are looking gray.”
“Things have gotten so out of hand today and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m afraid of what the next day will bring. Virtually all of our freedoms are being taken away, THEY want to now tag us like cattle, we’ve got millions of illegals marching in our streets demanding their “rights” (their rights are back in their own country), our Border Patrol Agents are in prison for doing their very dangerous jobs, the NAU, etc, etc, etc. It’s my idea of waking up in “The Twilight Zone”. What used to be considered wrong is now “right”, what was unacceptable is now acceptable. The President of “our” country is evil and has no scruples whatsoever. As far as I can ascertain, he’s driven by greed and the lust for power and control. It’s all so heartbreaking; so very hard to accept.”
There is an increasing loathing of George Bush, and it is a product of his own making. The comments of readers, in regard to the president, were scathing and searing. The animosity runs deep. His swaggering bluster, his disdain for constitutional principles, his monomaniacal mindset in regard to the nationally debilitating war in Iraq, and his never-ending sneaky endeavors for a North American Union and a new world order have made him the object of a deep and abiding resentment by a majority of U.S citizens. Even an incompetent and gratingly patronizing Jimmy Carter did not descend to the level of public condemnation that George W. Bush has achieved during his tenure.
The return to power of the Democrats, granted by the voters in the last congressional election, was not an endorsement of their liberal politics, nor was it an abandonment of conservative principles. It was, in fact, a desperate attempt to curb the dictatorial aspirations of a megalomaniac by removing those Republicans in congress who were, in deference to party loyalty, enabling him in his excesses. The voters gambled that the Democrats, out of vindictiveness and spitefulness, would deny the president his authoritarian overreach for undivided power, and that they would abridge his devastating policies both domestically and internationally. It didn’t work; the Democrats are in complete agreement with the socialistic endeavors of George W. Bush, and they are colluding with him in his quest for wide-open immigration.
They are so lockstep with the president that they, after some transparent self-serving verbiage regarding their opposition to the war, have sanctioned continued funding for his unconstitutional war. The voters have learned a hard lesson, and they are paying a high price for this miscalculation and their lapse of judgment. We can only hope that it is not too late to rectify this mistake and repair the monumental damage that has been done to the country.
