Well Hello.

Sometime ago, Federalist X gave me the opportunity to begin writing here at Amendment IX. I was flattered. A9 is a blog I have admired for awhile. Unfortunately, the opportunity he gave me coincided with a point in time that prevented me from blogging. He reminded me this weekend, and I'm now ready to proceed.

I only hope regular A9 commenters haven't lost their appreciation for the independent minded thoughts that are so often a part of the posts here at this blog.

My first post, short and sweet as it is shall be in the form of a question.

Why are we still in Iraq when the true enemy is here at home?

Some explanation of the term "true enemy" is needed. A true enemy is different from a false enemy in one way only, the true enemy has the ability to vanquish the state you live in. A false enemy can only provide damage. One can think in terms of threat level. Or perhaps one can view this in terms of ontology. However it is viewed, one cannot say that a true enemy awaits us in Iraq. One can say, on the other hand, that a true enemy awaits us here at home.

Culturally, illegal immigrants from Central America have the ability to vanquish our state. All southern border states can, in less than a generation, be seen moving from a western democratic ideal to an authoritarian, dictatorial ideal. Chief reason is the governmental traditions carried with these immigrants. I care far less about their purported propensity to steal than their actual lack of experience in governing themselves freely.

Another true enemy, one that Federalist X often spoke against, is the enemy of government debt and needless inflation. I am financially naive, but I know enough to know that the more paper our treasury prints the less valuable our tangible assets become. As our asset values erode, all experience so far has shown that a parallel eroding of governmental legitimacy takes place.

It would require a lot to destroy or vanquish the United States. Hyper inflation did not vanquish Argentina or Chile. But then again, the dictatorial and authoritarian traditions of those countries perhaps were the only known antidote to hyper-inflation.

In short, I can very easily see a scenario whereby the southern border states are thrown into economic and governmental chaos by the twin catalysts of hyper inflation and mass illegal immigration. I can't see anything in Iraq, even the now fanciful line of "the terrorist fighting us here at home" causing an equal threat to the existence of our Union.
