Illegal Immigration: Failures of Past Civilizations

I have described in my book, America…A Nation That’s Lost Its Way, the social and cultural paths that past civilizations have followed as they progressed through their rise and fall.

Educators and historians are varied in their opinions of what caused the final demise of these civilizations.

Page Smith, a noted historian, has presented common factors that have been identified with the failure of past nations. Among these factors are:

  • Loss of religious faith
  • Increase in domestic crime and domestic violence
  • Centralization of government power

Edward Gibbon, author of the book Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, indicated the following factors:

  • The injuries of time and nature
  • Hostile attacks of insurgents

According to Historian Seymour Lipset:

  • Bilingual and bicultural nations have never survived due to two or more
    competing languages and cultures, which create turmoil, tension and
  • A multicultural and multilingual society creates educational and economic

As I reviewed the reasons for the demise of past civilizations, I suddenly realized that the United States over the past 48 years has offended and violated all the factors historians identified with the failure of a nation.

Let us review each one.

  • Loss of religious faith: since 1962, from the schoolhouse to the
    courthouse America has removed God from our public lives.
  • Increase in domestic crime: our prison population surpasses all other
    countries at a cost to our taxpayers of over 44 billion dollars a year.
  • Centralization of government power: our government, as feared by our
    founding fathers, has grown into a federal bureaucratic monster.
  • Injuries of time and nature: time has a tendency to change the complexion of a nation. America is no different.

Over the years, particularly the past 46 years, extreme radical groups and new technology have changed our way of life and the direction of our nation. People have become complacent and indifferent. Well-funded groups and liberal judges have modified the Constitution and laws of the land to meet their own agendas.

New technologies have changed the ways in which we conduct our lives.

  • Domestic quarrels: our nation is divided in many ways affecting our values, freedoms, economy and political direction. This is seen more in Washington, D.C. than anywhere else. Our political divide is obvious, as our politicians – angry hostile in their never-ending debates – are unable to work in a bipartisan way to solve our nation’s problems.
  • Hostile attacks: the hostile attacks of terrorists during the ‘90s and 9/11 and the invasion of illegal aliens have dramatically changed our lives in America. Insurgents, such as the terrorists and street gangs created by illegal immigrants, have created chaos in our culture. The effect it has had on America’s economy, education and social programs is beyond belief.

It has become so complex that our government does not know how to address it.

Illegal immigration has become a major issue politically, socially and culturally. The standards set by our founders in our Constitution and laws no longer seem valid today. This nation’s radical liberal extremists and their “politically correct attitude” want to make America one big happy multicultural, multilingual loving family. History has proven that this is not possible. History also proves that a multicultural and multilingual society with competing languages and cultures creates problems and turmoil in a nation’s social, educational, and economic systems.

As proof that we have become a multilingual nation, almost every product sold in the American marketplace has instructions printed in English, French and Spanish. Our nation is comprised of many ethnic and racial groups with their own cultures and identities, including languages, traditions and neighborhoods. What is good for one ethnic group may not be good for another. As with personalities or career selection, not one fits all.

Our nation consists of many peoples, each with its own customs. However, we are but one nation that is governed by one Constitution. A nation cannot adapt to all the different customs of many people. The same Constitution applies to all the people. If we try to change our standards and culture to adapt to many languages and ethnic groups, we will not succeed. If a person or group wants to enjoy our freedoms, it needs to adapt to our one Constitution and our laws.

Government and the Environment

Federal regulations over the past several years have required that private businesses spend money on worker training, health, consumer protection, safety, assistance to the disabled, environmental protection – the list goes on. These hidden forms of taxation on the consumer and on businesses are crippling our economic growth. If these regulations had existed in the early 1900s, America would not have attained the economic growth and world power experienced during those times.

As most Americans would agree, government today is far too costly and too intrusive in our lives. Big government, higher taxes and excessive regulations are restraining America’s economic growth. The government has become an obstacle to the advancement and growth of our nation’s industries. History has proven not only in America, but also in other nations, that when government grows too large, it stifles the productive sector of the economy.

Has this affected how BP conducted business? If there had been less government regulation, would that have made a difference?

The Illegal Immigration Mess

(Citizens Reclaiming America Point #3)

Our founders originally gave Congress but four duties or responsibilities.
1) To settle foreign affairs
2) To print money
3) To settle boundary disputes between states
4) To declare war

The founders foresaw very limited government in the daily lives of its citizens.  It was not until 1913 that the Federal government was given the authority to levy taxes.

I consider illegal immigration to be a foreign boundary issue. Congress has interfered with all aspects of our lives, however when confronted with its basic responsibilities it has faltered.  Our elite “do nothing” Congress has failed to pass a balanced immigration law.  If our Federal government does not have the spine to address and enforce our present laws regarding immigration and our Constitution, then state governments must address this problem.

Perhaps Congress should reflect back to the words of President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907 when he said, “Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all.  We have room for but one flag, the American flag-we have room for but one language here, and that is the English language—and we have room for but one loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people”.

A Tale Too Familiar

A certain civilization lasted over 200 years.

  • Its government started as a republic form of government in which the balance of power was to remain in control of its people.  The government later became a democracy
  • The citizens chose an eagle as their national emblem
  • The Senate directed the political affairs of the nation
  • It had the world’s most flourishing society and economy as free enterprise brought about great national prosperity and abundance
  • Its’ military was the world’s strongest
  • This nation lead the world in advanced technology
  • They lead the world in commerce as foods were imported from all over the globe.  The abundance created an overweight society as gluttony and complacency became overwhelming
  • Its citizens loved entertainment and leisure times.  All sporting events were held at the stadium where a full capacity housed over 70,000 fans
  • Government dependency took over free enterprise as citizens became more dependent on government supplying all their needs
  • Over-taxation of its citizens stifled the economy and brought about economic disaster
  • Excessive government spending quickly exhausted the money supply and debased the value of their currency
  • People lost confidence in their government leaders
  • Members of this society chose to flee this nation rather than pay exorbitant taxes
  • The nations religious dedication began to diminish as cults, homosexuality and pornography replaced their moral values
  • The younger populace became liberal in their ways and believed in sexual excessiveness
  • The family became less important as abortion was a common occurrence
  • A protective wall was place around this nation to keep out unwanted immigrants and aliens in fear they might lower their standard of living and have a negative effect on their economy, education and heritage
  • The above statements describe the final phases of the mighty Roman Empire as it went through abundance, complacency, apathy, to government dependency.  This empire was not overthrown by outside aggressors, but died from within by spiritual and moral decay.

If the word America was substituted for Roman Empire would be describing the United States today?  During our 232 years as a nation, America is experiencing the same cultural and moral changes as the Romans as we aimlessly follow in the footsteps of history’s failed civilizations.

The conditions that precede the fall of every civilization are in place.  We have the ability to create our own fate before our nation’s final story is told by the decisions we make.  One should be responsible for their own choices: Not the government!!!!

Reclaiming Your Constitutional Freedom

America is at an historical crossroads for the future of our nation.  A government with its inept officials and the radical courts are the major reasons for the dilemma in which America finds itself.

The Democrat Congress of Pelosi and Reid along with President Obama proposed governmental “Change” in their campaign promises.  This team of liberal left Democrats is taking America into a new radical version of the Constitution.  This was proven in the recent passing of the health care bill which was rammed thru Congress while ignoring the majority wishes of the public when polls showed an overwhelming resistance to the proposed legislation.  These three politicians have created an imbalance of legislative power in the way they conduct government procedures.  No longer do we have the checks and balances our founders deemed necessary to run government.  The voting imbalance has brought with it a philosophy that those who do not agree with the views of these politicians will be overruled and taken out of play.  This is rapidly leading to a “change” in the make-up of a nation that Obama, Pelosi and Reid want to create, certainly not the America intended by our founding fathers and the Constitution.
