- What if you were a passenger on the Titanic? What different
choices would you have made if you knew what was going to happen to you?
To your children? Would you have approached the captain insisting he change
course? What if he ignored you? Would you have enlisted a hundred fellow
passengers to support your demand to change course, slow down or steam
into warmer waters? If he still refused, would you have given up and suffered
your destiny? Would you have been relentless and gathered 1000 passengers
behind you to insist that the captain change course? Remember this, "Conviction
without action is worthless."
- Much like the Titanic that sank on April 15, 1912, the
Unites States stands at a critical juncture in the history of our nation.
Few realize it, but, like the Titanic, this nation smashed into a piece
of legislation in 1965 that was never asked for or approved by the American
public. Our 'Captain' Lyndon B. Johnson along with helmsman Senator Teddy
Kennedy drove America into an 'iceberg' of massive, unrestricted immigration
that opened up the flood gates with the "IMMIGRATION REFORM ACT."
At first, the flow of one million immigrants annually wasn't noticed. We
showed benevolence. We enjoyed a big country. We featured plenty of room
- However, the massive flow of humanity from that 'hit'
still pours into our country 39 years later and few seem to notice--much
like the party-goers and dancing on the Titanic that kept up for hours
after hitting the iceberg in the North Atlantic. However, even the invincible
Titanic could not survive the onslaught from the constant flow of incoming
water--slowly, methodically stealing its ability to stay afloat.
- Today in the United States, 60 million immigrants later
and pouring in at 4.1 million annually--both legal and illegal--our nation
shudders from San Francisco to New York and from Chicago to Miami. We rose
from 200 million to nearly 300 million in three decades. What was once
a benefit to our country is now a full-scale overpopulation and societal
- From stem to stern, our English language is under assault
and our schools are drowning in ethnic violence, rapes, drugs and gang
warfare. In California, Texas, Florida and Arizona, our hospitals suffer
bankruptcies from non-paid services for 350,000 annual 'anchor babies'.
Ten million illegal immigrants displace jobs from America's working poor
and depress wages for many others at a cost of $133 billion annually in
- Leprosy, tuberculosis, Chagas Disease, hepatitis and
other diseases 'pour' into our country within the bodies of illegal immigrants
who avoid health screening before coming on board the United States. Even
worse, clashing cultures with religions that celebrate 'female genital
mutilation' and subjugation of women are growing in enclaves around our
country. As Lincoln said, "A house divided against itself can not
- On the environmental front, our nation explodes toward
an added 200 million people that will reach one half billion by mid century.
We are creating an 'irreversible crisis' with 'unsolvable problems.' California
is slated to add 20 million in 30 years. Colorado will add five million
by mid century. Arizona will add four million. They already don't have
enough water. Florida cannot survive another five million people. New York
shudders with its population problems. Air pollution poisons what we breathe
and massive sprawl devours our once lauded spaciousness. Species extinction
accelerates as we add numbers. Much like the Titanic, our standard of living
drops and our quality of life sinks with the influx of unrestricted immigration.
Soon, we too, will become like the countries of Bangladesh, India and China.
It's called the 'Tragedy of the Commons' which I will address in a later
- On the employment front, our leaders insource, outsource
and offshore our jobs to Third World countries while they import the Third
World into our country. Our Congress created H-1B and L-1 visas that have
displaced one million high tech American workers in the past decade. America's
middle class is being driven into the unemployment lines. Our schools are
becoming dysfunctional towers of Babel with over 100 languages. We can
not stay afloat with this kind of linguistic chaos.
- Yes, we have compassion for immigrants, but it's our
country and our children. Their leaders need to take care of them in their
- Unfortunately, Congress and the leadership of this nation
refuse to step below the water line to see how fast we are sinking. We're
$7.384 trillion in debt. We suffer $200 trillion consumer debt and the
average credit card shows an $8,000.00 balance! There were 20 different
languages on the California recall ballot. Whose country is this anyway?
Our leaders are standing in the wheelhouse totally insulated and isolated
from those of us who shovel the coal, build houses, repair cars, teach
our kids, drive school busses and plow roads.
- We cannot save the world, but we can destroy our country
if we fail to act.
- Like the Titanic that cracked in half before plunging
to the depths because no one stopped the incoming water, the United States
like all great nations before us, could sink. You can see the signs all
around our country. If you look about you, we're shuddering from bow to
aft-from the stacks to the rudder. Who is steering our nation and why are
they heading toward more icebergs instead of changing course? What can
you do? You are just as much an American patriot as Paul Revere, Betsy
Ross, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Lincoln and
the soldiers from Valley Forge to the Jungles of Vietnam and deserts of
Iraq. It's time to start riding, stitching, writing, charging, demonstrating
and fighting for our country within our country. We must seal our borders
against this invasion from a line that never ends.
- Since our leaders won't stop this invasion of an 'unarmed
army' of legal and illegal immigrants, it's up to you. Our children face
a dangerous future if we fail to take action. It wasn't George Washington
who beat the British army. It was every militiaman who shot from fence
lines and trees. It wasn't Ike who won WWII. It was every GI who slung
a rifle over his soldier. Susan B. Anthony marched and Dr. Martin Luther
King demonstrated. They, in their time, paid the price for defending America
so we could enjoy our freedom. This is your time.
- The worst decision you can make is to think you can do
so little that you do nothing at all. Be the snowflake that joins with
millions of other Americans that creates an avalanche of public protest
against this invasion. Write me for a 20-point action letter that will
empower you into becoming the most powerful snowflake in America. We must
change course and you must relentlessly demand it from our leaders. Remember:
