With immigration's continued onslaught prompted by the 1965 Immigration Reform Act jammed through Congress without debate, we added 100 million people to America from 1965 to 2007. We jumped from 194 million people to 300,000,000 (million) in 42 years. That same bill guarantees our country another 100 million immigrants within three decades; that's 30 years.

Nonetheless, our U.S. Senate, supposedly representing our best interests as citizens, passed S744 amnesty bill last April, 2013. Not only does that bill give amnesty to 15-20 million migrants, it increases our legal immigration onslaught from 1.1 to 2.0 million immigrants annually.

Speaker of the House John Boehner attempts to ram it through his body without a single thought to the long-term consequences. Just like the late Teddy Kennedy with his 1965 fiasco!

The final result of that S744 bill eventually guarantees our United States to increase our population from the current 319 million to 625,000,000 (million) before this century runs out. It forces us into being the third-fastest-growing country on the planet behind China and India. It means we will triple the populations of our 35 most populated cities. Example: New York City increases from 8.3 million to 24.9 million and on down the line. How do you water, feed, house, warm, transport, work at a livable wage, educate, and medicate THAT many people? How do you maintain a viable environment?

Reality of adding 300 million people: It guarantees that every citizen faces endemic poverty, lowered quality of life, and diminished standard of living.

My long-time friend Dr. Bartlett referred to anyone who preached endless growth as "innumerates" or as he said, "Innumeracy is the mathematical equivalent of illiteracy." The famous economist Julian Simon proved himself an extreme "innumerate." He flat couldn't grasp the reality of a finite planet.

One of Dr. Bartlett's academic friends at the University of Colorado, economist Kenneth Boulding, said, "Anyone who believes in indefinite growth in anything physical, on a physically finite planet, is either a madman or an economist."

If the House of Representatives passes S744, our country cannot and will not survive the 21st century as a viable civilization. It will not survive as an "intact" culture, language and American ethos.

Whether you see our danger in the sheer numbers: it won't be pretty for anyone. If you "see" the magnitude of the environmental damage to North America, it cannot help but send a shiver up our spine.

If you care about your children, about our environment, about the future--take action.

Forward this video to every single American you in your network:

"Immigration by the numbers--off the chart" by Roy Beck. This 10-minute demonstration shows Americans the results of unending mass immigration on the quality of life and sustainability for future generations: in a few words, "Mind boggling!"


During his life, Dr. Bartlett challenged every American: "This is my challenge to you: Can you think of any problem, on any scale, from microscopic to global, whose long-term solution is in any demonstrable way, aided, assisted, or advanced, by having larger populations at the local level, the state level, the national level, or globally?"

You must defeat S744 and Congress from inundating our country with 300,000,000 (million) more people. If not, our civilization becomes and our children become victims, or as Dr. Bartlett said, "innumeracy," which equates to illiteracy.
