Six years slipped into memory since I reported on Colorado Gov. Richard D. Lamm’s famous Washington, D.C. speech, “How to Destroy America.”He presented it to a stunned audience at the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s annual conference in October 2003. Since that time, someone translated the speech into German, French, and possibly Dutch.It rolls around the Internet with regularity as I see it arrive at my computer in various forms.Often, my byline somehow vanished from the credits. Nonetheless, the speech remains one of the most prophetic presentations for America in the twenty-first century.

Additionally, it applies to Great Britain, France, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Sweden, Canada, and Demark.It addresses the consequences of multiculturalism and cultural impregnation into otherwise stable societies.

For those of you who might like to see it in video form, you may download it and experience the chilling realities that Lamm spoke about six years ago.Take five minutes of your time and send it to all your mailing lists.“How to Destroy America”:

Since that fateful speech six years ago, Americans of every race, creed and color find themselves victims of an additional 12 million legal and illegal migrants who have arrived at our shores from failed cultures and hyper-populated countries. They represent economic, war and environmental refugees.Since that speech, the U.S. reached 300 million people with projections for adding 100 million more people by 2035.

In the past six years the world added 462 million people.In that same six years, 18 million people died annually from starvation and starvation related diseases, which equals 108 million human beings. Of that number, children under 10 represented 60 million deaths.(Source: World Health Organization)

Now, let’s get down to brass tacks!Out of the next 100 million people added to the U.S. through relentless immigration, a full 70 million of them will be immigrants from countries, religions, and cultures that failed to provide for their citizens.Why?Those countries’ populations grow so fast, they cannot feed, water, or educate them.Yet, the hyper-population growth in places like Africa will not stabilize.Africa, currently at 967 million expects to reach 1.4 billion in 40 years.South America expects to double its population! Mexico will jump from 108 million to 153 million. China will hit 1.55 billion while Indian exceeds them at 1.6 billion.

How does Lamm’s speech affect you or your children—and most importantly, to our civilization?

It means that California will jump from its already unsustainable 38 million to 58 million people.They add 1,700 people a day and 400 cars! They grow by 602,000 annually.It means their water shortages today will be outright water wars in a few decades. ■
