- Every time I turn around, somebody in the corporate world
admonishes more growth. Whether it's a big city, small city or overloaded
cities like Atlanta, Chicago, Houston or Los Angeles-national leaders trumpet
the advantages of growth.
- However, cooler and more intelligent minds stand up and
speak out like Dave Gorak, La Valle, executive director, Midwest Coalition
to Reduce Immigration. www.midwestcoalitiontoreduceimmigration.org
- "...in this country, it's phony to say, 'I'm for
the environment but not for limiting immigration.' It's just a fact that
we can't take all the people who want to come here. And you don't have
to be a racist to realize that." Senator Gaylord Nelson, Founder
of Earth Day
- In March 1972, the Rockefeller Commission on Population
Growth and the American Future concluded that "no substantial benefits
will result from further growth of the nation's population."
- "Thirty-nine years later, well-intentioned but naive
Americans calling themselves "environmentalists" are about to
engage in the annual charade called Earth Day, during which we all will
be encouraged to "think green," said Gorak.
- "The media will editorialize on this 41st Earth
Day, a creation of the late Sen. Gaylord Nelson when our population stood
at 203 million people. School children will be photographed sprucing up
their environs. Thousands of words will be written about recycling, proper
disposal of old paint cans and household chemicals, and reducing our "carbon
- "But nary a word will be written about the need
to stabilize our population growth if we are to have any hope of avoiding
a depletion of our natural resources and reversing an already declining
standard of living. Quality of life issues like open spaces will continue
to be ignored while false prophets of "smart growth" continue
to peddle their brand of pure baloney to planners at every level of government.
- "On April 1, 2010, the U.S. Census Bureau said our
population was 308,745,538 people or more than 100 million people since
that first Earth Day. At this writing, our population is closing in on
the 312 million mark, or another 3 million-plus people, nearly 80 percent
of them the result of our foolish and totally unnecessary immigration policy
that since 1990 has permitted 1 million people to enter this country legally
every year coupled with another 500,000 illegal aliens.
- "At our present rate of growth, the census projects
there will be another 100 million of us by 2060 and nearly 600 million
people by 2100, but nobody in the federal government, which the aiders
and abettors of illegal aliens keep reminding us has sole responsibility
for our immigration policy, seems to appreciate what lies ahead for this
- "As you all "do your part" on Earth Day
2011, keep in mind what Gaylord Nelson told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
in April 2001: "...in this country, it's phony to say, 'I'm for the
environment but not for limiting immigration.' It's just a fact that we
can't take all the people who want to come here.'"
- "In his 1993 book "Around the Cragged Hill,"
historian and diplomat George F. Kennan noted that "the inability
of any society to resist immigration, the inability to find other solutions
to the problem of employment at the lower, more physical, and menial levels
of the economic process, is a serious weakness, and possibly even a fatal
one, in any national society. The fully healthy society would find ways
to meet those needs out of its own resources."
- "Kennan went on to say that at unless we wise up
about immigration, this nation will end up looking like the Third World
from which most immigrants are coming.
- "Perhaps "Forrest Gump" should get the
last word here: "Stupid is as stupid does.""

- As Thomas Jefferson once said, "We have the wolf
by the ears and we can neither hold him or let him go." I suggest
we take destiny into our hands by taking action in the logical direction
by moving our civilization toward a stable population.
