Re: Rob Sanchez’s article My Intel Insight: Obama Unpopular—But Immigration Issue Has Not Yet Begun To Be Felt

From: An Anonymous Reader [Email him]

A good article and I agree completely with Rob Sanchez.

However, the pessimistic interpretation of the political perspicacity of Americans is the correct interpretation. The average middle class or working class American male is a political nitwit whose only concerns are sex and sports. These are the true opiates that now keep average Americans in a state of permanent blissful ignorance. And by the time that these average Americans finally realize that they have a big problem on their hands, it will be too late.

America will go the way of ancient Rome. It will be a long slow drawn-out process—from world power to complete irrelevance. No, America won`t go out with a bang or a political cataclysm. It will merely disintegrate into absurdity as a result of a lack of communal will on the part of its citizens.

James Fulford writes: I`m as pessimistic as the next fellow, even if the next fellow is John Derbyshire, author of We Are Doomed, but really, I`ve never seen any point in actually giving up.

I prescribe the complete works of Dale Carnegie, plus the poem Say Not The Struggle Naught Availeth, (read by the pessimistic Derbyshire)and a couple of Salvation Army hymns.

Followed, if you like, by three stiff drinks and a collapse  into despair.
