On the heels of the 500,000-person Los Angeles street demonstration, the illegal-alien lobby is promoting a major one-day boycott of American life to demonstrate its clout.

It is set for May – May Day – as it is known throughout the socialist and communist world.

It’s called “A Day Without Latinos.”

Organizers, like the Mexican American Political Association, are calling on their people to stay home from school, work and shopping and to protest out in the streets instead.

Protest what? I can only assume that they believe Americans have been inhospitable to them – only providing 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens with comforts they never knew at home.

If you’re like me, watching those 500,000 people in the streets of my former home town last week prompted a visceral reaction.

Who were these people flying the American flag upside down? Who were these people waving Mexican flags in my country? Who were these people trashing the country in which they are so determined to stay? Who were these people who don’t have jobs that require their energies that day? Who were these people that didn’t have schools to attend?

I’ll tell you who they were: They were mostly – probably overwhelmingly – illegal aliens.

And that’s why those numbers should scare us.

I have long believed that our own government is lying to us when officials report only 11 million or 12 million illegal aliens in this country. I think the real number could easily be twice that. And when you see the photos of those demonstrations in Chicago and Los Angeles, you start to realize just how potent a force those millions of illegals are.

We have indeed been invaded – and there is yet no determined effort to repel the invaders, to turn them back, to stop the flow of more.

Our government is not abiding by the laws of the land or the will of the people. U.S. citizens are angry about this invasion – maybe angrier about this betrayal of trust than any other single issue. That’s how I read it.

The Minutemen made a splash for awhile, but I think it’s time to mobilize 300 million Americans in an action in which we can all play a role, make our voices heard and turn up the heat on the politicians in Washington and the businesses that benefit so much from cheap labor.

Here’s my idea.

If the illegal alien agitators want to have a “Day Without Latinos,” I would suggest we plan a much bigger event – one that would truly bring this country to its knees for one day.

Let’s organize a “Day Without Americans.”

You want to find out how to stop the clock? You want to find out who really makes this country tick? You want to see who makes the trains run on time? Just try a day without Americans.

I think the illegal alien agitators have really goofed on this strategy. Because, frankly, I don’t think their “Day Without Latinos” will be any different than any other day for most of us. But a “Day Without Americans” will be a day unlike any we have ever seen in the history of this nation.

It’s not Latinos or any other ethnic group that makes this country great. It’s Americans that do.

That’s the message we need to get across. And the only disadvantage we have in organizing such an event is the work ethic of the average American. We don’t take days off from work to march in the streets and whine about our conditions. We don’t participate in boycotts over this cause or that, because we are busy putting food on the table for our children and helping our neighbors. We don’t shout and cry and paint our faces and act like children – we pay our taxes and keep our mouths shut and take care of ourselves and our families.

Well, it’s time to take a page out of the book of our enemies – and, believe me, America, we have some real enemies inside the gates.

It’s time to rise up angry – not against the illegal aliens who have taken advantage of this great country, but against the politicians who have not only permitted it, but encouraged it, all but handing out engraved invitations.

That would be the theme behind my “Day Without Americans.” What do you think?
