Should Nations Control Immigration

Let's assume that nations surrounded by secure boundaries remain the most logical divisions of both geography and people, and those thus surrounded are correct to insist their government defend everything within the borders including them.

To prevent the government from being overwhelmed by the excessive demands of immigrants, a nation must, as a fundamental protection, insist on a gate-keeping control. All immigrants that desire to permanently change their residence and nationality should be required to accept and meet certain clearly described requirements:
  • To be accepted as applicants for citizenship according to the date they apply.
  • Pledge their to alligiance to America only.
  • Understand that there can be no duel citizenship.
  • Understand that English is the one official language.
  • All documents, contracts, and government correspondence will be in English only. 
  • Agree to observe and conform to all American State and Federal laws. 
Tom McClintock has it just right. Please watch:

Immigrants that desire only a temporary visit to America should be granted a term limited visa for 90 days only with the ability to extend another 90 days only.
  • They must agree to observe and conform to all American State and Federal laws while visiting.
  • They must agree to leave when their visa time ends.
  • An unrestricted number of temporary visas should be available to holiday visitors, Farm workers, and virtually any other visitors.
There should be no other restrictions on immigrants regarding for example their intelligence, schooling, or wealth.

Immigrants whose primary residence is now in America, but are here illegally and are officially undocumented, after applying for a special temporary visa, be granted one year to become an American citizen or agree to leave at the end of the visa term.

The children born of undocumented immigrants or immigrants here with temporary documentation, shall NOT automatically be American citizens. 

Only the children of American citizens will be automatically American citizens. The childrenborn in America of applicants for citizenship shall be American citizens at the time both parents become citizens. Until that time the children will be granted a special temporary visa. 


P.S. The establishment of gate control of immigrant numbers should be enacted by the Congress following each Presidential election.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…
