11-13-15 – America’s Culture Shift

by Frank Mazur

Prepare for a rapidly changing America.  Recently the census bureau estimated our population will double by 2100.  That did not include 200,000 Syrian Muslim refugees, 500,000 illegals each year and 100 million third world refugees that will be added within 30 years.

Think about the population in your community doubling.  We’re already struggling with water, pollution, energy, and affordable housing and too few jobs.  How will the refugee entitlements and dependency programs affect our quality of life?  Nobody ever voted for this transformation.

We welcome people and expect them to cherish our freedoms and constitutional values, and become net contributors.  Immense numbers of immigrants will upset the ethnic and political mix, increase poverty and become a fiscal drain on our society.

If we don’t control this influx we’ll have a society with competing languages, multiple world views, conflicting values and incompatible cultures.  Europe, England and Australia are already having conflicts over Sharia law and entitlements.

Our welfare system is overloaded and food stamps are at record levels. Our middle class is facing joblessness and the illiteracy of high school graduates is troubling.  Our health care costs are escalating and social unrest is taking its toll in cities.

Stop this insanity and don’t doom our kids to a fragmented culture.  We can’t save the world and destroy our own country.  Hold Congress accountable to rational controlled immigration that insures our constitutional values.

We get what we accept!
