Meet Granpa Graham!!

So I am adding a new feature to the bloggle! It will be a political rant from Louis Sparkman Graham (Erik's Grandfather) because he is very passionate about politics and wants to educate people like myself who are ignorant to current political issues. I also love how computer savvy he is! He lives in Sebastian, FL with is wife Gloria and precious dog child Sadie.
Below is Granpa's 1st Edition. Let the commentary begin!!!!!!!!


What should we fear? There are so many facets to this that they can only be cussed and discussed piecemeal.
We are economically at the mercy of China, Japan and others because of several factors including our inability to live within our means. Our welfare state is ready to go broke. The social security system is said to be in danger of running out of money. No nation in the world has survived "multiculturalism", because they have submerged their own nationality. The "white" races of the world are not reproducing adequate replacement to maintain their place on the planet. The surface of the planet is finite yet people are reproducing at an alarming rate and in the process destroying the ecological system upon which we are dependent. We are fast using up natural resorces that are not replacable. The "elite thinkers" and business interests believe that we must have "globilization" to survive. ETC.

Lets look at problem which we all can currently relate to.
In my Webster - Nation - A body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or possess a government peculiarly its own.
"Particular territory" indicates some form of delineation, such as boundaries or borders.
"Seek or possess a government peculiarly its own"- the constitution of the United States.
It would seem that we qualify as a nation.
How do nations define immigration? The government of each nation sets up rules and regulations that delineate the qualifications a person must have in order to immigrate into that nation. Such a person is termed an immigrant and the process of becoming an immigrant is termed immigration. If this be true it follows that one can not be an "illegal immigrant" nor can there be "illegal immigration". If there are no borders a defining element of a nation is lost and since there is no nation no immigration can occur, ie. on may immigrate only when there is a nation to immigrate into. One may migrate into areas that are not defined as a nation, borders mean nothing to migrants. These distinctions become important in any debate concerning immigration or immigration reform.

Where does this leave us?
We are invaded by 10 to 30 millions of citizens of a foreign power and they now occupy our country. However, these migratory citizens retain citizenship in their own country to which they are are loyal.

We began poorly designed (from our standpoint) trade treaties in the Clinton administration and even further back. We have a host of treaties, NAFTA, CAFTA, etc. which were developed without the oversight of Congress. In 2005 Bush, Fox and the Canadian prime minister set up a "Security and Prosperity Parnership of North America" agreement. The Council on Foreign Relations published in2005 a report "Building a North American Community". It seems the plan is to have a "North American Union" similar to the European Union. We are to have free flow of trade and people across our borders.

Let me close by asking a question. If we have free flow of people across our borders, does this effectively remove our borders? If our borders are removed, are we a nation? If we no longer have borders, have we also done away with our constitution?

See you later.

Granpa Graham obviously hasn't been reading Eddie Vedder's commentary/drivel.. If this indeed came from the hand of a Graham there must be hope for Erik;)

It did! Granpa knows ALOT! That is why I told him to start contributing me a weekly political rant so that our generation can be educated!! I knew you would love it Marshall Colquett!

Wonderfully said! Laura, I hope you have some "liberals" subscribing to your blog. Maybe Grandpa Graham can educate them! I for one am not ready for socialism!

I have been trying to learn more politically lately. I listen to Rush Limbaugh, and even though he is very arrogant, I think he makes good points, and he doesn't seem to lie. I'll tell you this, if Hillary gets elected pres., our country and beliefs are doomed.
