All empires fall. So says conservative Denver radio talk-show host Peter Boyles – and he has said it frequently of late. Boyles spends a lot of air-time talking about the America’s deliberate across-the-nation refusal to seal our Southern border and stop the endless waves of illegal aliens. And the failure to get the border closed has originated from both sides of the political spectrum.
The President and Congress seem oblivious to the Tsunamic flooding damage the Open Border is causing. We’re directly in the path of the wave, which is going to take us under and wash us toward self-initiated political and economic destruction.
Congress is oblivious to the increasingly loud roar of the approaching disaster. For instance, United States Senator Michael Bennett was just yesterday beating the drum for continued non-enforcement of immigration law under the rubric of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. From reporter Mike McPhee in the Denver Post comes this story:
“About 500 supporters of immigration reform packed the Manual High School auditorium Wednesday night during the second of three nights of rallies across the state.
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo, drew warm applause although he didn’t say anything specific other than that he supports reforming the nation’s system for handling foreign workers who are seeking jobs and citizenship.
Asked later for specifics, he replied: “The system is unmanageable. It’s going to require a broad coalition of groups to bring about reform.”
Reform translates to Amnesty. Amnesty leads to Citizenship. Studies have shown that immigrants from Latin America overwhelmingly vote for Democrats. Citizenship for another twelve to fifty-million illegal aliens (depending on which numbers you choose to believe) will ensure domination of the Left in this nation for decades, if not for a hundred years.
Yet, the issue is not about race, as some from the Left immediately argue in response to calls for sealing our borders. The issue is about proper enforcement of United States immigration law (long ago thrown out into the trash), a struggling economy, and the survival of a two-party political system.
Throughout history, the fall of an empire usually meant mass killing, pillaging, rape, destruction and chaos. Like our impending destruction the fall of Rome was begun with a wave of massive immigration, granted by permission of the Roman Emperor himself, of hundreds of thousands of impoverished Goths across the Danube River during the mid-4th Century. Experts have disagreed on the exact date of the fall of the Empire, but the concensus seems to be right around 410 A.D. when the Visigoth King Alaric’s army sacked and destroyed the City of Rome. Thus the Western World was plunged into what became known as The Dark Ages.
Our nation may very well fall into economic ruin without a shot being fired or a city being sacked, partially as the result of the Fifth Column’s diligent work on keeping our borders open. The porous border between Mexico and the United States has resulted in a Tsunami of overwhelming work-loads for our social services agencies, our public schools being crowded with non-English-speaking students, and hospitals going broke because of unpaid emergency room bills. Illegal immigration is breaking us financially and is politically about to empower the Left-wing forever.
In the interests of saving ourselves from what has eventually happened to history’s great empires (collapse and ruin), we would do well to block the incoming Tsunami by sealing the borders and beginning in earnest to deport all who are here illegally.
Our survival depends on it.
