A Fine Line Between Stupid And Clever

Buchanan Book Declares End Of America

Posted by bmac on November 27, 2007

I hate to be pessimistic, but I have to agree, at least on some of what he says.

 A few of his points:

• The Third World invasion through Mexico is a graver threat to our survival as one nation than anything happening in Afghanistan or Iraq

As concerned as I am about terrorism, it’s really a pimple on the ass of what’s happening with immigration. I would bet that there’s more gang related deaths every year than terrorist related deaths, yet we certainly don’t have a color coded threat level advisory about that shit. I’ve seen entire communities turned into Barrios practically overnight, and most people in the southwest have seen it too.

I believe this is the single biggest issue facing this country today. What’s worse, who’s gonna stop it? Republicans want cheap labor, Democrats want votes. It’s that simple. You often hear the argument that illegals “pay taxes.” Yep, they sure do. They also don’t file returns, or receive refunds. How much do you think that adds up to to Uncle Sam? Do you think they want to stop that kind of cash flow to appease the core GOP voters? Good luck getting that fence built. Oh, and make sure your kids learn Spanish, cause they’re gonna need it.

U.S. manufacturing is being hollowed out.

As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I whole-heartedly believe in the free market. At the same time, mega-corporations are becoming the rule instead of the exception, making everything I buy a piece of shit. I’m not anti-Wal Mart, but they have forced manufactures to find the cheapest way to produce whatever they want to put in their stores, and that means not made by Americans. Quantity over quality, and we’re eating it up. When is enough enough? How gargantuan should Wal Mart be? I can easily see Wal Mart being the only retail store in existence, because eventually, nobody will be able to compete. They’ll sell everything you could ever possibly need, in fact, they pretty much do now. I also hear they may buy Home Depot.

Torn asunder by a culture war, America has now begun to break down along class, ethnic and racial lines.

The biggest problem here I believe is the mainstreaming of “Ghetto Culture.” Used to be, people aspired to make money to get out of the ghetto, now they just take the ghetto with them. Thugs are the role models of 2007, and young girls practically aspire to be single mothers. Ghetto and hip hop culture has been the single most damaging trend ever. Even worse than the hippies. If you have kids, just tune into MTV for a few hours to get an idea of what’s being rammed down their throats every day. Even if you don’t allow it in your house, they’re still being influenced by this stuff everywhere else. We are glamorizing the very worst aspects of our society, and it’ll take it’s toll. And contrary to popular belief, Ghetto Culture adds to racial tension rather than easing it.

Look, I know Buchanan is a bit of a kook, and a little alarmist, but he does make some pretty valid points, that no one wants to address. Just my two cents, because I’m in a pessimistic mood.

    I’ve always liked Buchanan, myself. People label him as an anti-semitic, but I don’t believe he is. I don’t think he’s a kook, either. He’s gotten a very bad rap.

    He does say this about Iraq though:
    • Bush’s invasion of Iraq was a product of hubris and of ideology, a secular religion of “democratism,” to which Bush was converted in the days following 9/11
    That’s a little kooky.
