Barbarians Within the Gate

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

China is now building a 50 square-mile self-sustaining city outside of Boise, Idaho and setting up Foreign Trade Zones in the US.

For perspective, 50 square-miles will encompass most of the greater Reno, Nevada area. The Reno metropolitan area has a population of roughly 500,000 people. Reno is one of the gambling capitols of the world. It has an international airport. A significant portion of the land area is dedicated to industry and manufacturing. While the Reno area only currently houses 500,000 people or so, if you were willing to stack them a little tighter (as they do in China) you might easily cram a million people into the same space. This is not a trivial amount of land to cede to a foreign entity. Boise itself, which this will be to the south of, would fit within 50 square-miles. This land is very rich in farming potential.

We have literally invited the barbarians to enter through our gates and set up house among us. Surely they would never overthrow us? This is insanity – not only are we giddily waltzing up to the chopping block, we are laying down, baring our throat and providing a sharpened blade and a warm and fuzzy basket for our heads to fall into. The Chinese just can’t believe the gift of weakness laid at their Communist doorstep – conquering America is beginning to look like a walk in the garden to them.

In the name of capitalism, Governor Otter is selling the state of Idaho right out from under our feet. It’s not capitalism, it’s globalism
