Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

Characterizing the Antis (Pro-Legals)

According to Dee, "Some of the Worst Terms the ANTIs use are: 3rd World Country, Mexifornia, return to American Values."

She didn't provide a list of the positive terms that characterize Antis. One such term is: loyalty -- loyalty to one's fellows citizens and to the national interest.

If one spends any time in California, especially Southern California, it won't take long to see that "Mexifornia" is a apt term for that state. Of course, no one can predict what America will be like 50 or 100 years from now. However, if Southern California is any indication of what is to come for the rest of the country, it is reasonable to assume that not only is "Mexifornia" an appropriate description for California but "Mexico Norte" or "Amexico" will be an appropriate term for the country as a whole. The legal immigrants and illegals from south of the border will have re-created in this country the very conditions that led them to leave their homelands: poverty, disease, overpopulation, joblessness, oligarchs, corruption and crime. We have our share of all of these already. We don't need anymore.

Some will say that Mexico is not a 3rd world country and maybe that is so, yet it is unable to care for its own citizens and continues to dump its poor into our backyard uninvited. And where does unfettered population growth in all the Americas lead us if not to 3rd world status. I like to cite the simple equation: the limit of finite resources divided by population, as population increases without bounds, is zero -- ask any math professor. There is no more stark evidence of this than here in the West where water is in increasingly short supply as our population continues to grow.
I watch the continuing plunder of the Great Plains’ Ogallala Aquifer, the largest underground reservoir in the United States and one of the largest on the planet. It once held as much water as Lake Huron. It is a treasure that took millenia to accumulate. Remarkably, it could cease to be a water resource within another generation…. We are left with yet another illustration of an all too common American mindset: short on vision, mired in denial and unable to comprehend nature’s limits.” (Tom Letheby, The Denver Post)

Professor Jared Diamond, speaking at the University of Colorado Conference on World Affairs, linked the failure of societies to their inability to establish equilibrium with their natural environment. Dwindling natural resources, particularly accessible fuel and arable soil, lead to conflict. People will create cultural reasons to kill each other as justification to claim food and energy for themselves. His modern example was the 1994 Rwandan genocide which was ostensibly an ethnic civil war. Diamond preferred to explain it in terms of an overcrowded, underfed society that turned on itself to reduce its population. When asked about the global implications of this example his conclusion was simple: ‘We can either solve our problems comfortably and in a manner of our choosing over the next fifty years, or our problems will solve themselves uncomfortably and by means not of our choosing, after the next fifty years.
