- During his visit to the U.S. last week, President Vicente
Fox kept pushing his agenda of opening the American border for hordes of
Mexican "migrants" and granting them "rights" that
would make it easier for them to entrench themselves in our country once
they managed to put their foot on American soil. The usual bull about how
just it is for Mexicans to improve their lives at the expense of American
taxpayers, and how Fox disapproves enforcing of the U.S. immigration law
and seeing his hard-working people fear of "La Migra", was repeated
at nauseam, over and over again. But there was also a new tune in Fox's
hypocritical preaching on the socio-economic necessity of mass "migration"
of Mexican unskilled labor to the U.S.
- In an article published in Investor's Business Daily
(see ), Fox was quoted saying that "an aging U.S. population would
be well served by allowing more free-flowing immigration of a decidedly
younger Mexican population into the United States." In case you don't
see anything wrong with Fox's statement, consider this. Nations that use
birth control in order to avoid overpopulation and enjoy high longevity
of the residents have naturally, and unavoidably, older populations that
the nations that don't. If a nation reaches the equilibrium and controls
the fertility rate so that it stays at the replacement level, the average
age of it's population is roughly equal to half of its longevity, that
is, about 35 in the U.S. No matter what the morons and charlatans from
the anti-aging lobby say, there are only two ways of permanently lowering
the average age of population: by lowering the average longevity, which
means that people live on average shorter lives, or by having more kids
than 2.1 per family, which means an exponential population growth (importing
children or young adults belongs to the same category).
- So, here is what Fox is really telling you when he postulates
the "free flow" of " younger Mexican population into the
United States". You, suckers Americans, used birth control while refusing
to die early, so now we, Mexicans, will fix your problem by relocating
our young, whose parents bore as many kids as they could, to your country.
These young Mexicans will lower your national age average by making up
for (a lack of) the children that you haven't born. The real insult in
that message is in that it suggests that Americans are not able to have
enough babies of their own, or that they don't know how to make them, so
that they must import the youth from other countries, like Mexico. In other
words, Fox uses planned parenthood paradigm prevailing in American society
as an excuse to replace the American population with Mexican one that doesn't
believe in rational planning. (I wonder, why didn't he go all the way and
not advised Americans to stop procrastinating altogether so that the population
replacement may be carried out smoothly and expeditiously.)
- We will be much better off trusting our future and the
future of this country to our own children rather than to "younger
Mexican" workers. After all, they (our kids, that is) are more likely
to continue building on what our ancestors and we have accomplished.
- Here are some other detrimental effects of Fox's postulate
of the "free flow" (the list is far from being exhaustive).
- 1. The average level of job skill on American market
will go down as a vast majority of Mexican "migrants" have virtually
no education and can only perform low-skill jobs. And so will the average
productivity and income, so vital for the solvency of social security and
retirement plans. To make things worse, low-skilled workers are more likely
to retire by the time or before they reach age of 65, as opposed to college
graduates whose jobs are less dependent on physical strength. For instance,
university professors often work past age of 70, some of them remaining
professionally active in their 80-ties (you can still write a book while
in your 80-ties but don't even think of picking fruits or packing meat
at that age), thus decreasing demand on social security and rudimentary
- 2. The national IQ level will go down as well; Mexico's
average IQ is about 87 while U.S. average is about 98, and we don't even
get even average intelligent people with mass "migration" from
Mexico. This will have a negative impact on technological progress and
well functioning of our elective democracy. (Look at what's going on in
Mexico if you want to see a sample of society with relatively low average
- 3. The average education level in America will go down
as well (or the criteria for passing will be lowered, which basically will
have the same negative effect) as Mexicans are notorious for dropping out
from schools and not being interested in pursuing college degrees.
- 4. The health care costs will skyrocket as Mexicans are
cultivating unhealthy lifestyles (never mind the taxing jobs they perform)
and are more prone to obesity; the latter alone will mean that, according
to projections based on data on obesity among Hispanics, about one third
of their population will have to undergo a bypass surgery - a tens of thousands
of dollars procedure. (This cost alone will, most likely, offset a regrettable
gain resulting from the fact that people with a lower IQ have a tendency
to live shorter and, therefore, consume less retirement funds.)
- 5. Once the Mexican electorate in the U.S. becomes a
majority, God have a mercy on America.
- One must be blind to not see what Fox and his "compatriots"
are up to, but if you think that he promotes his "migrants" cause
just because his heart is bleeding when he sees poor "migrants"
suffering from poverty and discrimination, think twice. As soon as he gets
back home, he becomes insensitive not only to the needs of his own working
- often jobless - poor, but also has no sympathy for hopes of "migrants"
from Central and Latin American countries that crossed the Mexican border
in their search for better lives: all illegal aliens in Mexico are promptly
apprehended and deported to where they came from, and any protests of their
native countries' administrations are harshly rebuked by the Mexican government
as unacceptable interference with internal Mexican affairs.
- Let's face it. Fox is no altruist and everything he does
has only Mexican national interest in mind and no one else's interest.
Injecting as many loyal to him Mexicans as possible to the U.S., a prelude
to future "peaceful" takeover, is one of his main goals. We,
Americans, have no stake in Fox's plans. Whatever reproductive levels fit
best our national objectives, our children and not foreign "migrants"
are the rightful heirs of this land of the brave and the home of the free.
If we chose to have two kids only, it's NOT because we wanted to leave
more room for "younger Mexicans" whose parents refused to use
birth control. So, please, do whatever you can to prevent the replacing
Americans with Mexicans in our homeland, or you and those you love may
find themselves living in a foreign country in a not so distant future.
Because all that is necessary for the triumph of Mexican takeover is that
good American patriots do nothing.
