Your outrage is noted my friend. It is interesting how one single issue can serve as a microcosmic mirror reflecting the problem of a many issues.
Like chronic illness, that is a slow and steady erosion of health, The U.S. has been chronically ill for more than 100 years now. The more recent
problems with immigration can be traced, in a large part to the failures of NAFTA, and indeed, the failures of the Mexican government, a government
that serves as a model and clear goal for our own U.S. government who have embraced corruption as if it were an achievement to be proud of.
The Mexican government has a long history of corruption, so long that many nationals from that country have simply just come to accept that corruption
as being business as usual. It should be of no surprise that a federal, and even some state governments in the U.S. who aspire to the levels of
corruption seen in Mexico, would want people here who accept that corruption as the norm. Further, as Congress continues to discover, the idea of
disarming the people will continue to be met with fierce resistance, and when seeking to gain control over the people heavily armed, wedge issues
become an important strategy.
As wedge issues go, illegal immigration has become an important and defining issue, and the recent Arizona Bill serves as yet another reflection of
the political landscape nationally, and how increasingly a federal government willfully moves in directions contrary to the will of the people.
Battle lines continue to be drawn, and the clear and present failures of the U.S. federal government become glaring contrasts to their ambitious
programs that have dubious Constitutional authority, while they continue to fail at what Constitutional authority they do have, and this glaring
difference need be disguised as best as possible, so anything that government can do to deflect the issue, and frame it in general terms such as
racism and rogue states, is in their best interest...not the peoples best interest, which is supposedly why the federal government exists, but in the
best interest of a growing population of tax feeders who vehemently believe it is their divine right to prosper by collecting more of our money.
While the economy, described by the sycophants of government as a modest recovery, continues to flounder, heated issues such as illegal immigration
become ever more important in the seedy magicians bag of tricks, while the divine right advocates continue to plunder and encroach more and more upon
the rights of all people. The U.S. has engaged in clear and undeniable empire building, and when tyrants seek to build empires, enforcing immigration
becomes antithetical to their goals. Of course, empires were never built on the notion of protection of rights, and with the U.S. it is no different.
What good is toppling a madman in a foreign country, if when done by the U.S., the new constitutional government in place rejects The Constitution
for the United States, with its Bill of Rights, as an appropriate model, and instead adopts a constitution that continues to reflect the divisions of
It may seem to be off topic, this effort to pull back from a concentration of trees and take a look at the whole forest, but when one does pull back
and take a look at the forest from those trees, it is more than evident that the forest is ablaze and very little effort being made to quell this
forest fire. What is to be done, when the solution to the problems of illegal immigration becomes criminalizing those who hire illegal immigrants,
while those who legislate this criminalization roundly approve of the Executive branch's willful failure to keep this illegal immigration kept at a
minimum? Does it not serve the master well to blame his subjects for his own failures? Do not the nobles and elites who so often praise their king
benefit from criminalizing their subjects, while debating the value of granting amnesty to a new generation of subjects?
We live in nation today where notions of self government are radical ideas, and citizens arrest frowned upon, yet those who hire employees not only
expected to enforce immigration law, but to enforce income taxation, and indeed, act as tax collectors themselves. The many contradictions of the
tyrants are apparent to anyone paying attention, and it remains, as it will continue to be, that the tyrants will always act in ways to destroy all
that of which they seek to control. It is not enough, my friend, to be outraged, it is imperative we rely upon our weapons of words, and demonstrate
that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword, while doing what we can as individuals to fight the tyrants.
Those who cross here illegally may not be tyrants themselves, but if they come here worshiping tyrants then they have chosen their side, and have just
as willingly agreed to the battle lines, and as it always was, this has never been about race, nor religion, nor even wealth, and has always been
about ideology. In the war of ideas, it is imperative that those who can facilitate better understanding of ideas, stay the course. Where illegal
immigration continually outpaces legal immigration, there should be, and for the most part, there is no argument that governments have failed. When
faced with this failure, we can continue to make the same mistakes over and over again, each time expecting a different result, or we can adopt a
saner method and not just demand the necessary changes that would reflect sanity, but use our own free will and right to make these changes ourselves.
