It used to be that as one grew older their experience developed wisdom that could help guide succeeding generations. Today the world moves too fast. In some ways my 10-year-old granddaughter knows more intuitively about computers than I do after working online since there was an online.
One thing however remained a constant. We were all Americans. We all believed in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. We not only expected our freedoms we came to take our heritage for granted. Today most people can tell you more about their local sports teams than they can about their government or the History of America. None of us get the luxury of living in the country we grew up in yet in the past we could at least look forward to living in one that shared the same values and generally the same goals.
Today, as our values swirl the drain and our goals have morphed from freedom to free access to government largess, we are staring into the maw of an existential crisis that threatens to leave our children with the proverbial bowl of pottage for which we traded their future.
What is this issue that dramatically portends the ultimate doom of the America in which most of us grew up? As a British politician once said, “Demographics is destiny.”
It used to be if the politicians were out of step with the voters the voters threw them out at the next election. Now our politicians have decided to import new voters who will support them and submerge us.
Just when you thought we were safe from the latest version of the Children’s Crusade there is another surge of unaccompanied minors breaking on our borders like a tsunami. The second wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children has begun, with more than 3,000 of them surging across the Mexican border into the U.S. last month — the highest rate since the peak of last summer’s crisis and a warning that another rough season could be ahead.
