The Dispossession of Middle America; Australia, You are Next! By Chris Knight
This article by Pat Buchanan, has been reproduced on many sites, and it is instructive even for Australians to learn how America finally dies, because it is going to turn our world here in Australia, and the rest of the West, as our world is turned upside down, or is it just, Chinese?
“In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America’s permanent minority party.
In the Golden State, Democrats control the governors’ chair, every elective state office, both U.S. Senate seats, 46 of 53 U.S. House seats and three-fourths of each house of the state legislature in Sacramento.
How does the left expect to permanently dispossess Middle America? Let us count the ways.
In 2018, over 60 percent of Floridians voted to expand the electorate by restoring voting rights to 1.5 million ex-cons, all of Florida’s felons except those convicted of sex crimes and murder. Florida gave Bush his razor-thin victory over Al Gore. Should Trump lose Florida in 2020, he is a one-term president. If the GOP loses Florida indefinitely, the presidency is probably out of reach indefinitely. Florida’s Amendment 4 is thus a great leap forward in the direction in which the republic is being taken. Gov. Terry McAuliffe of the swing state of Virginia restored voting rights to 156,000 felons by executive order in 2016, calling it his “proudest achievement.” In California and Oregon, moves are afoot to reduce the voting age to 17 or 16. Understandable, as high schoolers are more enthusiastic about socialism. Last week, a bold attempt was made by House Democrats to lower the U.S. voting age to 16. It failed — this time.
Some House Democrats apparently feel that with “Medicare-for-all” and the Green New Deal of Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez on the table, they have enough progressive legislation to satisfy the socialist base. Thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown, every adult citizen in California who gets or renews a driver’s license, gets a state ID card, or fills out a change of address form with the Department of Motor Vehicles is automatically registered to vote. Purpose: expand voter rolls to include those who have shown no interest in politics, so they can be located on Election Day and bused to the polls. Ari Berman of Mother Jones writes that Nancy Pelosi’s 700-page For the People Act that did pass the House contains “a slew of measures designed to expand voting rights, which … include nationwide automatic voter registration, Election Day registration, two weeks of early voting in every state … restoration of voting rights for ex-felons, and declaring Election Day a federal holiday.”
House Republicans offered an amendment to the bill with language that said, “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.” All but six Democrats voted against the GOP proposal. The Democratic Party does not want to close the door to voting on migrants who broke our laws to get here and do not belong here, as these illegals would likely vote for pro-amnesty Democrats. If the new U.S. electorate of, say, 2024, includes tens of millions of new voters — 16- and 17-year-olds; illegal migrants; ex-cons; new legal immigrants from Asia, Africa and Latin America who vote 70 to 90 percent Democratic, the political future of America has already been determined. California, here we come.
As a Democratic insurance policy, Memphis Congressman Steve Cohen has introduced a constitutional amendment to abolish the Electoral College. Some Republicans support statehood for Puerto Rico, which would add six electoral votes that would go Democratic in presidential elections about as often as Washington, D.C.’s three have, which is always. Ben Franklin told the lady in Philadelphia, “We have a republic, if you can keep it.” Our elites today, however, ceaselessly celebrate “our democracy.” Yet John Adams was not optimistic about such a political system: “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes exhausts and murders itself. There never was a Democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”
Thomas Jefferson, a lifelong believer in a “natural aristocracy” among men, was contemptuous: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.”
Madison wrote in Federalist 10, “democracies … have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.” If one day not far off, as seems probable, tax consumers achieve a permanent hegemony over the nation’s taxpayers, and begin to impose an equality of result that freedom rarely delivers, the question of who should choose the nation’s rulers will be tabled anew. We do not select NFL coaches or corporate executives or college professors or generals or admirals by plebiscite. What is the empirical evidence that this is the best way to choose a president or commander in chief? Peoples are wondering that the world over, as our democracy does not appear to be an especially attractive stock.”
Even the illusion, even the mere shadow of democracy, has now gone, given the above qualifications of the limits of democracy, which is just how bad things are now in the US. Thus Trump, who was elected by this same dispossessed majority, is now ramming up legal immigration, while not building the infamous wall, or maintaining border security, and thus speeding up the demographic displacement of those who voted for him. Even Trump’s previous supporter are turning on him fast, as these articles indicate:
As always, the bottom line reality is economics, and Trump’s new mania for legal mass migration will simply further aid foreign workers, not Americans:
“Foreign workers have now outpaced American workers in terms of job growth for at least half a year, new Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data reveals. In February 2018, foreign-born workers continued to make job growth gains over native-born American workers. Foreign-born workers, for example, saw more than three times as much job growth as native-born Americans last month. And while native-born Americans did not increase their labor participation rate at all year-to-year, foreign-born workers saw a 1.22 percent increase in their labor participation rate. Likewise, the number of foreign-born workers in the civilian labor force increased more than five times the number of new native-born American workers who are now in the labor force."
All of this from the most pro-Trump media outlet on the net. This is not to saw that Trump actually accesses the internet; he probably does not know how, and relies upon his son-in-law Jared to feed him news, the news Jared wants him to have. Even so, it would not matter much since the man was rotten from the beginning, a conclusion Ann coulter seems to be reaching. Coulter said: "Trump may be a shallow, narcissistic conman, but that doesn’t mean the media are not the enemy of the people. Both things can be true," adding that perhaps one positive outcome of Trump's presidency might be the "total destruction of the lying media." No, I don’t think even that will occur, but there has been some awareness of the media’s corruption, which is something. Not so much in Australia though, but we hope that our American coverage will make a small contribution to this aim.
Thus, the Alt Right is hoping that Andrew Yang will solve the day with his proposal of giving everyone $ 1,000 a month, yet another act of grasping at straws rather than facing cold hard reality, which would not be good for their internet cottage businesses. Yang sounds good on paper, or on the net, but seriously do you really think the power elites will allow even this? It makes Trump’s wall look like an endorsement of motherhood.
“We can mourn Western civilization after it passes – and there’ll be much to mourn. But the death of the civilization will not mean the death of its people. The Romans and Greeks are still kicking around under various names, even though what Spengler called Classical civilization has been gone for a while now. Similarly, white people will survive the death of Western civilization – if Faustian man in his death-throes doesn’t destroy the white race first. Already the global hegemon and her various satrapies are cracking down on every form of white identitarian activism and actively discouraging white reproduction. And yet we still see misguided whites trying to save this fallen angel. There is a great danger in trying to save a drowning man – the stronger he is, the more danger. In his panic, he might pull you down into the depths with him. Faustian man is already killing the white man. We can no longer risk trying to save him. We tried with Donald Trump, and failed.”
