Part 3: Congress needs to implement solutions, not squabble.
In Part 3 of this series, let’s deal with the nitty-gritty problems causing our society environmental, governmental and financial breakdown. Let’s move with common sense to solve our problems. Let’s work toward a viable and vibrant future.
Solutions for Survival of the United States in the 21st Century
In 1970, American women began averaging 2.03 children per family. That created a stable and sustainable population that lived within the carrying capacity of a finite land mass.
Unfortunately, the 1965 Immigration Reform Act, by the late Teddy Kennedy, opened the flood gates to the third world. And, they poured into our country. Why? Because they jumped from 3.5 billion to 7.6 billion people in the past 50 years. Thus, they starve and live in misery. They want to migrate to Western countries to alleviate their misery.
They add 83,000,000 (million) of themselves, net gain annually, so there’s no end to the line. What’s the solution?
Stop all immigration into the USA. Help them with food, water, growing food and birth control in their own countries.
Why? Here’s why: Share these videos all over America:
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls”, Roy Beck, director of www.numbersusa.ORG, graphically illustrates the impact of overpopulation. Take five minutes to see for yourself:
Sanctuary Cities Across the USA
We must enforce the laws and statutes of America by prosecuting mayors and governors of states who harbor, defend and create “sanctuary cities” that give immunity and protection to all illegal aliens.
If you break America’s laws as to Section 8; 1324, of the Federal Code, you remain liable for prosecution. We either maintain law and order in this country, or we end up with anarchy and lawlessness. I would start with my own Governor Polis of Colorado and Mayor Hancock of Denver, Colorado. Both stand in violation of Federal laws as they both support sanctuary cities and sanctuary state. Both prove themselves criminals in the eyes of the law.
Rescind 1965 Immigration Reform Act That Floods America with Legal Immigrants
We must rescind the 1965 Immigration Reform Act. It’s destroying the continuity and viability of our country, in fact, of our entire civilization. We don’t need 1.2 million legal immigrants annually. We don’t need to grow our population from 300 million in 2006 to 440 million in 2050.
If you think it’s okay, here’s a 10-minute video to show you why it’s an impending nightmare to future generations:
“Immigration by the numbers—off the chart” by Roy Beck
This 10-minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words, “Mind boggling!” www.NumbersUSA.org
Plastics and Recycling for the 21st Century in America
We must create an economic incentive to recycle our plastics, glass, tins, metals and all other containers sold on the open market. We need a 25-cent deposit-return law for everything made of plastic, glass, tin, metal, aluminum and other materials. That would guarantee a 99 percent return on all waste products.
We need to recycle all plastics to be used in road construction. It’s being done in Europe today. It’s cleaner, more efficient and healthier for the environment to re-use plastics. Also, it would stop the desecration of the oceans such as the 100 million ton “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” that kills millions of marine and avian lives annually.
Also, we need to lead the world in such a deposit system internationally. We’ve proven that only one-third of American recycle much of anything. A 25-cent deposit law would make sure that 99 percent of Americans would recycle. If they didn’t, kids would be picking up all that waste to line their own pockets. It’s a win-win.
700 Military Bases in 80 Countries Around the World
Right now, because of the power of the “Military Industrial Complex”, you and I pay billions of our tax dollars to operate 700 military bases in over 80 countries around the world with 450,000 military personnel running them. Why? Congress thinks we need to influence those countries, when, in fact, we are an invading military force.
We need to withdraw from those countries. After 18 years and $6,000,000,000,000.00 (trillion) in Afghanistan and Iraq—and absolutely accomplishing nothing—we need to withdraw from those war-torn countries and leave them to their own devices. It’s a lie and it’s baloney that those terrorist countries could or would attack us. By leaving their countries, they have no reason to attack. Besides, they prove themselves backward goat-herder and poppy-seed growing countries and nothing more. Leave them alone so they leave us alone.
We cannot and must not use our military and our money to police the world. It’s a waste of time, money and lives. And, in the end, it does nothing and accomplishes nothing. Except it’s killed a lot of our finest men and women in the armed forces.
We Face Financial Collapse with a $21 Trillion National Debt
All of our meddling and wars in foreign countries has given us a $21 trillion debt. President John Adams said, “There are two ways to conquer a country: by the sword and by debt.”
We’re well on our way to destroying ourselves and watching this financial deck of cards drop down around our ears. This debt paralyzes our country. It makes us all poorer, and it will ultimately destroy any chance of balancing our accounts. The American people pay billions for interest with no benefit.
Congress created this massive debt and they need to stop it, and begin repaying it.
Part 4: We will examine our failing schools, infrastructure and laws. We need to create an entirely new educational system for all citizens. We need to work in the inner cities with new educational concepts. If not, millions of illiterate kids will not participate in America, and will become a nightmare of poverty, illiteracy and welfare. Hint: it already is happening.
