What Can We Do?
by MICHAEL W. MASTERS
What can we, as C. of C.C. members, do to advance the conservative cause? The most important thing we can do is to speak out and be involved in the political process. Too often, conservatives spend their time complaining about America's problems to others who share their same beliefs -- after all, that's a lot easier than confronting those nasty people who seem to populate the left wing -- but when it comes time to do something, there is only silence.
The most important issue facing us is the continued existence of our people, the European-derived descendants of the founders of the American nation. As immigration fills our country with aliens, we risk being disposed and, ultimately, displaced entirely. All too often conservatives, particularly establishment Republicans, duck such issues in favor of others such as lower taxes, reduced government power, severe punishments for violent crime, limits on pornography, and religious issues such as prayer in school.
To be sure, these are valid issues, symptomatic of the character of our people. But it is the continued existence and good health of our people that is the primary issue. The reason is that the things we value, such as the freedoms framed above, are largely intrinsic characteristic of our people. Among very few other peoples of the world are personal freedoms and regards for the rights of others a detering factor in the political equation. This also accounts for why freedom, rule of law, individual rights, democracy and the other characteristics of Western societies seem never to have caught on among the various other peoples of the world.
The corollary to this fact is that if we allow immigration to flood our land with people who are not like us, then the freedoms and rights we cherish will disappear as these people become numerous enough to elect their own political leaders. In short, they will simply "vote" to take away our freedoms -- and our money, via taxes -- and appropriate these commodities to themselves. Thus we cannot win by defending low taxes or limits on government, or even prayer in school, because once we are no longer numerous enough to set the dominant cultural and political tone of the country, those rights and freedoms will automatically disappear.
Thus we must defend our identity as a distinct and separate people.
This argument does not depend on which races have low or high IQs, which races commit more or less crimes, or any other argument based on "principles." By this argument, we are no more obligated to surrender our country to Asians, who have high IQs and low crime rates, than we are to Africans or Mexicans, who have low IQs and high crime rates. The key is that we are a distinct people, related by birth and blood, and entitled to existence as such.
Anyone who wishes to deprive us of our unique and distinct existence commits the crime of genocide against us, and it's about time we started framing the argument in those terms.
