Capitalism has made it this way. Old fashion fascism will take it away.

I'm just making a prediction here. I just want to stick it up here for an I-told-you-so in the not too distant future.

The way I see things happening around me, there is a lot of growing sentiment against illegal aliens here in America. There's always been anti-alien feelings, but I'm talking about genuine discord. People in the south taking up arms and guarding our borders. The seeds of hatred being sewn.

I'm not here to stick up for either side. I'm all for legal immigration and I'm all for secure borders. I also believe that if I wasn't born here in the good ol' USA, I'd make tracks to get here asap; Legally or otherwise.

But that's neither here nor there.

What is important, right or wrong, is the hatred. The need for scapegoating. The need to blame our problems on the people who can't defend themselves. As our economy worsens, so too will this need, this denial of the truth. We, the people, cannot cope with things that our beyond our control.

We make gods to things we fear and do not understand, but we only make enemys of things we fear. This is human nature. Once again the thing that makes us what we are will help to bring about our downfall.

You've seen the direction our democracy is going. You know for yourself we have less freedoms than we did six years ago. We have less privacy. We have less autonomy. All in the name of security.

In the name of security we will have one rise to power that will reap this harvest of hatred. In the name of freedom we will brand illegals as our scapegoat. In the name of our national god and the security that only he can bring we will strike these people to the ground and crush them beneath the heel of patriotism. We will be proud once again. After years of economic suffering caused by a shortage of energy we will be willing to accept whatever means ncessary to restore our former glory.

Blood will flow. Freedoms will die.

We will be secure.

Just a prediction.
