Jeff, I think the Feds are promoting NWO and are in full support of the illegal immigration invasion. Where do you get the hope that they will "do the right thing"?
I believe the same thing can happen here if enough people raise enough cain and if the issue becomes heated and politcally liable enough.
Unfortunatly, what Landru said is correct, they will try and make this a race issue and that's a heavy burden to overcome in the current environment and on their playing table. That's why it can't be allowed to play out exclusively on their playing field. Klamath diddn't, it as grassroots and the internet that made a HUGE difference. I do not believe we can understimate or neglect that.
In addition, the poers that be are also underestimating, IMHO, the general feeling of most of the population on this issue. They are fed up.
Finally, I also believe that there is a God in Heaven and He can work miracles ... in fact, He will work His will. It is Him ultimately that I place my trust. We have to work hard and work smart in accordance with that IMHO.
Our founders worked against even more overwhelming odds (IMHO) in their day and won out. Klamath was a small but important example IMHO of the same principles. Those same principles can (and I believe they are) being applied here. That is the basis for my hope ... not that there are many in the government who would do so for the right reasons. But that through these methods they might be brought to it. If not ... then God be with us all.
I might add, that there are some good people in government and we need to support and grow them in every way we can.
