    Arrow The end of the American Dream

    While we here in Ireland have a long history of emigration, especially to the US it now seems that the mighty USA have gone from immigration to emigration.

    Millions of white educated Americans cannot find a job that they have been trained and educated for. So they are emigrating to the BRIC countries, especially China, and even to Europe to find opportunities that the US can no longer offer them.

    Before I go any further I declare i'am not a racist. But the problem of whites emigrating means there will be a higher ratio of non whites of different in races in the future, especially African Americans and Hispanics.

    Taking into account the large families that these groups produce, as opposed to whites will lead to major problems sooner than we think. As I have already said I'm not racist but its no secret that the majority of these people don't work, are reliant on social security, have higher crime and drug addiction rates as proved by their higher population in the prison system.

    It could be as less as ten years before the tipping point occurs. The question that arises is who will pay the taxes for the many programs that the already obese US government runs? Programs like social security, medicare, and of course their massive defense budget?

    There will be simply not enough tax payers to support the present system.

    It will be interesting how the mighty USA cuts their cloth.

    The 'American Dream' has been dead for a long time now. Did you miss the funeral?

    They just found a rake of oil and natural gas. They might well pull through.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that you might just be a racist, whether you know it or not.

    Check the facts! Millions of highly educated and mostly white are now emigrating looking for better opportunities elsewhere.

    Maybe I am racist but I believe there's a little bit of racism in all of us.

    So you weren't being entirely honest in the OP, then?
