Having been cognizant of the morays of society since the late 1950’s to now It is amusing in some ways and sad in others at the shift in social focus from one end of the spectrum to the opposite end. The 60’s were challenging due to society’s perception of the involvement in Southeast Asia, the “Civil Rights” movement, The diffuse focus on what was driving the economy, and the political situation of that era.
Racism was not started in the United States or the British Colonies. It has existed globally for millennia. Society and cultural differences go back over 3000 years, The Middle east has known very few years of peace and no war. Does not make it right or wrong, it’s a fact. The Hebrews and the Muslims have been fighting over the same land Since the time of Abraham. The Egyptians conquered the same lands and lost them again, the Romans conquered North Africa, Egypt, the western China border then North to the Black Sea, and so forth. The Mongols Took all of that back to the black sea and south into Persia (Now Iran and Iraq) All these cultures some Barbaric, others considered Civilized, and all used forced labor (Slaves) to build their empires. No one color of skin mattered a slave could be from Northern Europe, Spain, Turkey Africa. It was still slavery. Does not make it right, it is just the facts.
We have gone from a country that started out as a British Colony, similar to Australia except that the majority of the colonists were coming here to escape religious persecution, although not all were here by choice as the English sent those that owed more than they could pay (Referred to as Debtors) to be a workforce as indentured servants. Most of them were never able to satisfy their debt. In the southern Colonies, The Slave trade became a lucrative business for some shift characters. What is most distressing was that many of the Africans were sold into slavery by their own people. Didn’t make it right, it is just the facts. Are the whites better than the others? NO! Not only no, but even worse it took a civil war to begin the end of slavery in the United States. But what is truly saddening is the way that the expansion of the United States claimed the lands of the Native Americans. Some of the tribes no longer exist, because the White man helped to end them. Now let us be fair in this analogy, so too did rival tribes assist in the decimation of some of the other tribes. Sadly those cultures, Customs, Languages, Art, Craftsmanship skills, and history have been lost, the same thing happened in Canada, Central America, South America, Australia, and many other areas around the globe.
How does that relate to the title of this article? We are in the middle of another shift and our very survival as a Democratic Republic is a stake. I’m not attempting to incite violence or insurrection just stating the facts! Our wonderful country with all its freedoms and liberties will disappear from its current form into something far less acceptable if we as the American Public do not start waking up and start paying attention to the truth! Ask your self “What is it about our country that is so enticing to the citizens of other nations around the globe, to make them flock here in droves attempting to get in without going through the proper procedures”? Simple, it used to be called the “American Dream”! No matter what your race, color, creed, culture, or religious beliefs, you can become a successful person, if you work hard, obey the laws (all of them, not just the ones that suit you), and believe in the Constitution of the United States of America. ALL THE LAWS mean just that! To enter this country legally, you must have a valid Visa, to Immigrate to this country you must go through the proper channels, and submit the proper paperwork. Once here you must work towards becoming a US citizen. Only after becoming a Naturalized Citizen are you fully protected by the Constitution. Only as a Naturalized Citizen do you receive the privilege to vote in the elections, and qualify for (If you meet the requirements) Social Security and Medicare. That means you have to work, earn a living, pay taxes and pay into the system. Currently, the borders are as porous as a stock fence laying on the ground. One merely walks across. Yes, some are caught but many others are not. Our government claims that the southern border is secure. The statistics from the Border patrol quickly show this to be false. Cartels are making money to smuggle human beings over our border. The Term “Human Trafficking” is an accurate description of how they operate. They charge the person a large amount of money to be smuggled into the United States. sometimes they take the money from the people and sell the children and women to be used as slaves in the sex trade. The cartels are also flooding our country with drugs from marijuana to fentanyl. The drug Fentanyl is so strong that ingesting one pill could lead to a deadly overdose. The cartel’s are cutting other recreational drugs with this pure fentanyl making them in pills that look like candy. This is their direct targeting of of our younger generations.
It is time, to stand up to those in our government that care more about their own power than following their oath of office. To protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic!
