"Former Colorado Governor Lamm, a man I know personally and respect highly, wrote "Megatraumas: America at the Year 2000". He projected ramifications of our growing consequences to this country from immigration. Whether he was off by a few years, he hit the bull's eye as to what we face in 2007 and beyond.
In 2007, we suffer $8.7 trillion national debt, $789 billion devastating war debt, $700 billion annual trade deficit, 18 million unemployed Americans, 3 million jobs outsourced, millions insourced via illegal aliens 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 balance (debt). Our manufacturing base no longer exists and illegal workers from Mexico create the second largest underground economy in the world. According to Bear-Stearns Report of 2005, $400 billion in IRS income taxes go uncollected while American job wage losses exceed $200 billion annually.
...Because of massive immigration numbers, 86 hospitals and ER wards in California bankrupted out of existence in the past five years.
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.
"America's educational system will move into a new Dark Age," Lamm said.
In his own state of Colorado, Denver Public Schools suffer a 67 percent drop out/flunk out rate every June. One of five teachers quits or transfers out every nine month cycle from futility in chaotic classrooms. In California, education turned into a fight for survival with 100 competing languages, gangs, drugs and racial conflicts. Educators 'warehouse' immigrant children until they dispatch them into our society at age 18-functionally illiterate.This year, Washington Post journalists reported that one third of the Washington, DC's local population suffered functional illiteracy while one fifth of mainstream America can't read, write or work simple math.
One look at two million prisoners in our federal, state and local jails tells you something is wrong in America. Over 15,000 MS-13 gang members distribute $128 billion in drugs to our schools and cities nationwide.
As a nation, we no longer enjoy unlimited food production as our farmland diminishes with population onslaught. We import 35 percent of our food.
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."
Patrick Buchanan in his book, "Day of Reckoning", said that America is 'deconstructing' itself with massive, unending immigration.
"America is coming apart, decomposing, and...the likelihood of her survival as one nation...is improbable -- and impossible if America continues on her current course," declares Pat Buchanan. "For we are on a path to national suicide."
Every sign today shows environmental breakdown, population pileup and degraded standard of living. Where is America headed? I don't think enough Americans know or care."By Frosty Wooldridge
