Ding! Ding! Ding!

(Click here for enhanced audio while you read this post!)

Church bells should be tolling across the land... as shamnesty was defeated. "Ding Ding, Ding Ding." The solemn sound was played across the airwaves today on the Michael Savage show.

What is it that people don't get about shamnesty??

Below, my first letter to Sen. Warner.

Re: No amnesty for illegals

Dear Senator Warner:

I'd like to excerpt a famous article by psychologist Garrett Hardin to illustrate the very real danger of letting illegal immigration go unchecked:
If we divide the world crudely into rich nations and poor nations, two thirds of them are desperately poor, and only one third comparatively rich, with the United States the wealthiest of all. Metaphorically each rich nation can be seen as a lifeboat full of comparatively rich people. In the ocean outside each lifeboat swim the poor of the world, who would like to get in, or at least to share some of the wealth. What should the lifeboat passengers do?

So here we sit, say 50 people in our lifeboat. To be generous, let us assume it has room for 10 more, making a total capacity of 60. Suppose the 50 of us in the lifeboat see 100 others swimming in the water outside, begging for admission to our boat or for handouts. We have several options: we may be tempted to try to live by the Christian ideal of being "our brother's keeper," or by the Marxist ideal of "to each according to his needs." Since the needs of all in the water are the same, and since they can all be seen as "our brothers," we could take them all into our boat, making a total of 150 in a boat designed for 60. The boat swamps, everyone drowns. Complete justice, complete catastrophe.
This nation is URGENTLY in need of decisive and meaningful action by Congress to stop the influx of illegals who trample our laws and soverignty.
