This Can’t Be Right

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

According to Wikipedia, the official census report put the U.S. population at 150,520,798 residents in 1950. The current census has us at 305,114,780 residents.

According to the Official United States Census, our population has about doubled in the past 58 years. Yet virtually all our villages, towns and cities have vastly increased beyond mere doubling of their populations. Palmdale and Lancaster, California, are two good examples, Palmdale having a population of about 5000 in 1950 and lancaster about 10,000. In 2007 the Palmdale – Lancaster urbanized area had a population of 462,272, a population increase of well over 30 times. Not far away is Los Angeles. Back in 1950, Los Angeles was surrounded by towns such as Pasadena, Burbank, and Inglewood, the largest of which was Pasadena with just over 100,000 people. Los Angeles itself had 1,970,000 people.

Today, the Los Angeles Basin, as this area is now generally referred to, having become one big wall-to-wall mass of endless city, is listed as having a population of about 17 million. I would argue that it’s at least twice to three times that.

I was around in those days and before them. I lived in Long Beach, which itself was the next largest city to L.A. with about 250,000 people in 1950. At that time, there were vacant lots in virtually every neighborhood and very few apartment buildings. Even those were all one-storey apartments that all looked alike. A row of apartments on each side with a central walk. There were no multi-storey apartments whatever and it was a short ride to the edge of town.

Traffic was minimal even though there were no freeways. There was no traffic congestion. When I was there in 2000, most of the houses had been replaced with high-rise apartment buildings, the downtown skyline was packed with skyscrapers, the traffic was extremely congested, the city had expanded to it’s absolute limits where it was stopped by the expansion of neighboring cities, and there wasn’t a vacant lot in the entire city.

Yet the same census claims that the population of Long Beach has only increased to 461,522 residents when clearly this large city had to be well over a million.

Flying over San Jose, CA in a light plane and looking down, you could see this small town surrounded by vast tracts of farmland. During the 1960’s I watched the town expand and the farmland shrink until today it’s all city and no farmland. How many more people does it take to do that? Would you claim that the population only doubled?

This is just California, but I’ve traveled all over the United States and have seen the same thing everywhere. Some of the most hostile living environments in the country have become filled with people where, in 1950, only a few lizards lived. In Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico. Go to New Mexico today and it’s like downtown Mexico City, and in the best areas to live in, people are practically stacked on top of each other, on out to the higher hills and distant fringes. Drive cross-country, go clear to Florida or New York from the west coast and you’ll see how people are filling up the hillsides.

This is why there’s so many wild animal attacks lately, because we’ve not just encroached on their habitat, we’ve taken it over and pushed them aside. If deer and bears can live there, hey, so can we, and we’re moving in on them by the millions.

So what I propose here is that our census is pretty obviously lying to us and the truth is that the population of the United States is more likely over 500 million people and still growing. The question I have is, why is our actual population being covered up and downplayed? Perhaps there just aren’t enough census takers being hired or perhaps those that are just aren’t doing their jobs. I know there’s a lot of places where no census taker in his or her right mind would dare to tread, maybe that’s part of it.

BUT… what I think is that if we Americans were made fully aware of what a massive problem this overpopulation is, how it’s literally destroying the ecology of our once-beautiful nation, how it’s creating poverty and misery and a massive increase in crime and a massive decrease in our personal freedoms, I think we’d be unhappy enough about it to want to reverse this trend.

Reversing this trend means kicking out all the Mexican illegals. It means reducing political power bases. Less people, less votes. It means reducing the profit margins of big corporations that are selling massive quantities of goods to this burgeonong population. It means taking away a lot of wealth and power from those who are most powerful in our society.

So do I think this is a conspiracy? You bet I do.
