On December 21, the illegal alien friendly (if the illegal
alien is Mexican) Department of Homeland Security raised the terrorist threat
level from yellow to orange. Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge has asked that
all citizens be on the alert for, and to report, suspicious activity.
Who should we report it to? The out to lunch bunch government
types who have been letting our nation be invaded by millions of illegal aliens?
What will they do? Why waste our time? The effete elites in our government have
been sniffing that common citizens shouldn't do anything about illegal immigration
and border laws because it's a federal matter. Well, I wouldn't be surprised if
many citizens now said that protecting this nation against foreign terrorists
is also a federal matter. I think many if not most citizens are saying "Do
your job Ridge, close the borders instead of letting potential terrorists into
who are donating their time and money to protect our borders because the federal
government won't do it are being left to spin in the wind by Ridge and his elite
pals in government. This doesn't build a lot of confidence in the government in
the minds of ordinary citizens who still believe that our laws should be enforced
and not be ignored by government elites so their pals in industry can get cheap
labor. Why should the rest of us now get involved in trying to report more suspicious
activity? Many citizens have been reporting suspicious activity for years and
have been ignored or insulted for doing so.
Are we to be good citizens and report suspicious activity,
or are we supposed to let the feds do it? How many times can the government insult
good, decent citizens who are simply trying to report illegal aliens, and still
have these citizens respect the government and report other suspicious activity
of the type that the feds do want to hear about? Ridge has very little respect
among many citizens who have heard what he recently had to say about legalizing
illegal aliens. I've heard at least one citizen call him a clown since he made
his stupid statement.
The federal government, in the hands off way it has
handled the Third World invasion of the U.S., has cheapened citizenship and stomped
all over practical patriotism. In doing so, the government elites have ruined
the desire of many citizens to do anything to help the feds. Many citizens have
become narrow eyed cynics who just don't trust the feds anymore. No longer can
the feds always expect to find fawning, open, apple cheeked citizens just waiting
to do their citizen's duty. They've been disabused of their Tom Sawyer attitudes.
And, these citizens can't be as easily manipulated with the latest simplistic
neo-conservative cause du jour that is little more than an attempt to raise money
while giving knee-jerk "patriots" busy work so they won't do any real
thinking about the poor state of post-American America and why it is the way it
is. Good, decent citizens are screaming to get our borders closed and for an end
to unbridled Third World immigration both legal and illegal. Presidente Bush and
Tom Ridge hear these citizens about as well as the elites of pre-revolutionary
France heard the real concerns of their citizens, which is to say, not at all.
John F. Kennedy once said "Ask not what your country can
do for you, ask what you can do for your country." Back then, many citizens
felt good about themselves and this nation and felt as if they owned this country
(which they do). Now, thanks to the phony elites in government today and their
screw ball approach to immigration, many citizens have become alienated from this
nation. And, many citizens have very little desire to help the "them"
that the government has become. Call it the Bush malaise. Unless Bush and his
administration smarten up and start supporting citizens as they're supposed to
be doing, and if the Democrats run a half decent candidate, Bush may be a one
Close our borders Mr. Bush and Mr. Ridge, then you'll start having some credibility when you want citizens to be your eyes and ears. That may also help with getting citizens to begin thinking of themselves as citizens with duties and responsibilities again. Don't expect citizens to live up to their duties and responsibilities if you won't live up to yours.
