Our $6 trillion in trade deficits in the Bush decade stimulated economies all over the world, just not our own. Indeed, the most successful economies of the last decade were China and Germany. Not coincidentally, they were the world's two largest exporting countries.

There are time-honored ways that nations have turned around such situations. What prevents us from adopting them? An ignorance of our own history, the immense investment of our transnational corporations in the new global arrangement, and the opposition of a World Trade Organization to which we have surrendered our national sovereignty.

A second reason why the median income of American families is back to 1996 levels and sinking is mass immigration, legal and illegal.

According to analyst Ed Rubenstein of VDARE.com, the United States, despite an unemployment rate above 9 percent, imports 100,000 immigrant workers every single month. Numbers USA contends that 125,000 foreign workers are brought in every month.

Thus, well over a million workers are added annually to our labor force when 14 million Americans are looking for work.

Why are we doing this?

Is it xenophobic to say our own citizens should come first, that the importation of foreign workers must halt until our own unemployed have found jobs?

A huge share of our immigrant population is Hispanic. And Rubenstein finds that for every 100 Hispanics employed in the United States in year 2001, 126 are employed today. But for every 100 non-Hispanics employed in 2001, only 98 are working today.

What prevents our politicians from putting Americans first, deporting illegal aliens and suspending the importation of foreign labor until our own workers are back on the job?

Politics is one reason. Democrats see illegal aliens and their children as future Democratic voters. Republicans are terrified of being called racists and alienating the ethnic lobbies.

Crass commercial interest is another reason.

U.S. companies see immigrants, legal or illegal, as an endless source of cheap labor to keep wage costs down. And they are right.

But who is looking out for the national interest, for all of the members of the American family, especially the unemployed?

If the median income of the American family is falling, already back to where it was in Bill Clinton's first term, Middle America is one of the big losers in the global economy. And who are the big winners?

The problem is most Americans are too damn lazy to do the jobs that are available.

+1
And Politicians as a whole don't give a shit about National interest. There are a few, it seems, but the majority of Politicians only care about staying elected and helping themselves along with selling out to the highest bidder.

The .gov tit suckers have learned how to live on handouts and we now have 2nd & 3rd generation's of these tit suckers that have no incentive to "work" Politicians have no doubt used these scum by extending "benefits" in return for votes. It is a vicious cycle, we did it to ourselves.

It blows my mind to see how the few Politicians that appear not to be libtards get railed and demonized for being racist, gay hatin' or whatever the new "bad" word for the month is.

The mentality of the left is indicative to targeting the illegals, tit suckers. This Country is becoming more divided, and especially in the last 3 years because of these moonbats. The tit suckers are delusional, the Dem's and most of the Rep's are delusional, the morals, ethics, fundamentals, values of this Country from the top to the bottom are on a fast track into oblivion. It didn't happen overnight, its been going on for 30 yrs IMO, but its really sped up in the last 10 yrs, its a fuckin bullet train the last 3 yrs.

We should have a cap on the number of legal migrants coming into this Country, and the illegals are just a no-no.

I was thinking yesterday, with all of the lawsuits, .gov vs States/States vs .gov all of the cases that have/or planned to go to the SCOTUS lately is another indication of the unprecedented division in this Country.

I believe there will be absolutely NOTHING done to curb illegal immigration in this Country. I know NOTHING will be done while a Dem is in office, and I have very little hope that ANY Rep will do anything about it.

About 200,000 a month...and they don't have to be AIDS-free anymore, thanks Obama. The invasion is the answer. It will displace us, it will change us , and even eradicate us, but by God, it will save us.
