“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Are America's days numbered?

I read an article this morning over at TownHall.com in which Patrick Buchanan chillingly outlines, by all accounts, what the world may look like in only 40 or 50 years.

Human populations experience natural fluctuations, advancing and receding with time and generations. As Buchanan points out, the ascendancy and rule of modern, western man is just about over. Third-world peoples are rapidly and aggresively colonizing western democracies with massive, herd-like migrations and startlingly high birth rates, and will in two generations dwarf Anglo-Europeans in terms of resident population. Here's the scary part...

And America? According to the Pew Research Center, the Hispanic population of the United States will triple to 127 million by 2050, as Mexico's population grows to 130 million. An erasure of the U.S. border, or merger of the two countries, or the linguistic, cultural and social annexation of the American Southwest by Mexico appears fated.

The question in 2050 will be(I will be 88, my kids will be 56 and 62, and my grandkids will likely be in their 20's or 30's with kids of their own), is America a nation in serious decline, much like Europe is today, flush with third-worlders, clamoring for an increasingly greater slice of the pie and demanding that we as hosts adapt to their ways rather than the other way around? It already started the first time somebody installed a "Dial 2 for English" message on their phone. It's beyond scary to me that my grandkids will likely grow up in a country that is vastly different, and not in good ways, than the one I grew up in.

You can go ahead and stick a fork in Europe. They are beyond recovery. And for the reasons above, every day I become more convinced that immigration is the single greatest issue in American politics. Our politicians of both parties look no further than the next election cycle, never considering the long-term effects of their refusal to act today. Neither McCain, Obama, or Clinton are interested in closing the border, so it looks like the stone mason might be starting to carve our fate too. Seriously, if you don't to anything else productive today, read Pat's article.

It is a scary though and no one is doing anything to stop it. Retaining our own culture, wealth, and safety makes us bigots according to the PC police. More people need to say enough is enough. www.goodoleboybumperstickers.com

I read the same article and it is keeping me awake at night. And everywhere I look their is numbing ignorance of the quiet storm brewing which will slowly sweep us away. I cannot fathom how we can let this happen but it does appear imminent.

This is the #1 threat to the U.S. Not terrorism, not China, not Iran, but the illegal alien invasion we are ALLOWING!

While I'm at it I'll tell you the number #2 threat to the U.S.: our approach to education.

It is stunning to me to think we are fighting all over the world for other people while we give away our country.

If you want to know what my generation, (I am 20), and the generations to come after me will be most like, go sit down in a high school history class. When your history teacher tells you that Nixon was the worst president to live simply because of the Watergate incident, and Jimmy Carter doesnt even make her top 5 worst presidents, something is wrong. If I didn't already know Ed, I have no idea what kind of person I would be. To the youth of America, if you want to see how America will be in the year 2050, read 1984 by George Orwell, and Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Those are history lessons. Rand and Orwell saw what America was turning into over 50 years ago. It is scary.

Well said Kevin.
