A New Jersey Reader Says
Favoritism Toward Aliens In Health Care May Force Him To
Move West

Re: Patrick
Cleburne`s Blog:

Two Blood-boiling Potions From A Certain Slant Of Light

The impacts of
illegal aliens on healthcare and education are
analogous. During phase one we merely pay for illegals`


. But in phase two, they

crowd us out

Because of illegal
immigration, Americans can no longer get decent


quality educations.

I have been

three times in past year and my wife
once. On several occasions, we had to

take a number
to get in line for procedures.

This is irritating
since more than 50 percent of patients

spoke only Spanish
and are probably here


People in New York
are now moving west, as Horace Greeley

, but to


, not California.

A California Reader
Reluctantly Plans To Leave The Once Golden State


Kathlene Miller

Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column:

Is It All Over For The Golden State?

I enjoy reading
Guzzardi`s columns—especially the latest one about
California`s continuing population explosion.  

Joe wrote:

"The more aware among us however know that during the next four
decades professionals and their tax-generating jobs will
leave California in a great big hurry. Social services
that lure aliens to the state will dry up for the most
basic reason: no tax dollars to fund them."

My husband and I have
discussed this eventuality when we read the latest
demographic data.   My husband is a professional and
fifth-generation Californian.  I am a

transplant. We have stayed in California
to help his family take care of his aging parents.  

After they pass away,
we may leave California because of its deteriorating
quality of life.  We have lived in

for the past four years. During that time,
we`ve noticed increased


Afghan gang activity
and graffiti. The police force
is trying hard to deal with

strong-arm robberies and drug related crime

Therefore, we are
planning our escape.

By the time

rolls around, we`ll be well into our 80s, if we
live that long, and our children will be middle-aged
adults.  We want a better life for them.  But if they
stay in California, they will be

taxed heavily
to pay for the

poor quality of life
that will surround them.  We
have greater dreams for them than that.

It will be hard to
leave the place that my husband`s family, for five
generations, has called home.  It is extremely sad to
see what is happening to his beloved state.  

I hope Californians of
all backgrounds will wakeup in enough time to protect
their state`s future. It`s obvious the politicians won`t
do anything, so we the citizens of California need to
take action.

A CA Reader Refuses To
Alter Her Lifestyle To Facilitate The Alien Invasion


Meredith Johnson

In June when we fought
our elected politicians to save our country, my calls to

Diane Feinstein

Barbara Boxer`s
offices stressed the quality of life
(or lack thereof) that Californians would have when the

reaches 60 million people. Among my other
questions were where would

the water and power
come from?

I had heard Feinstein
say on the Senate floor that because we have a growing
economy, we therefore need to add more people through
immigration.  In other words, our population is
increasing, so we need to add more people?

I was so incensed
about her comment that I angrily denounced Feinstein to
her staff.

Why does no one
question idiotic statements about growth?  Are we in
love with growth for growth`s sake?

I`m tired of
superficial reporting in the

that repeats, thoughtlessly, the population
propaganda that the elites spew. 

I conserve, have no
children, live in a small house, keep my lawn dry,
rarely leave town during the week and

fly infrequently
. But I refuse to sacrifice my
already frugal life style to accommodate another 30
million Californians. 

The water department
wants us to save 20 gallons per day—no way! I already
do my part.

Johnson, who lives in
the San Diego area, is a lifelong California resident

A Michigan Reader Looks Back At
California—Not Fondly


[Name Withheld]

Nine years ago, I moved into a new subdivision in Galt,
CA, which is located between Lodi and Sacramento.


Galt was a nice lower middle class place for first-time
homebuyers.  There were a few

government-financed homes,
but not enough to change
the community`s character.


But, as time went by and more houses were sold, Galt`s
demographics changed.  Every other house sold became a
multi-family dwelling.  Most of my new neighbors were
Spanish-speakers. Houses with four or more older cars

were parked in driveways
. Street

popped up—as did

car break-ins and thefts.


Seeing the direction Galt was headed, I moved to
Michigan a year ago. I sold my house to two families
with different Hispanic last names.


Once in Michigan, my first job was at a hotel and
conference center.  Not a single first-language
Spanish-speaking person was on the staff.  Instead the
housekeeping and landscaping
—were predominantly
middle-aged whites.  Any vacancies were filled
immediately from a large pool of applicants.


Coming from the northern end of California`s Central
Valley, I quickly noticed the differences between my new
home and old homes. It had been a long time since I had
seen a


black landscaper
in California. In southern
Michigan, I have yet to see a Mexican in a

lawn care crew
. At restaurants, language is not a
barrier when I order.


This, I know, is anecdotal evidence. But I remember
growing up in California

unhindered illegal immigration exploded. 
English speakers—both young and old—filled the hotel
staff jobs and lawn crews.


I have never believed the remark

“They are just

doing jobs Americans will not do
Just leave California to realize how false that
statement is.


The truth: illegal aliens take jobs Americans will not
do for such low pay.

Joe Guzzardi

Galt is ten miles north of Lodi, where I
live. Of all the small communities that have sprung up
in California in the last two decades, few have been
overwhelmed and ruined as completely by

immigration-driven sprawl

An Illinois Reader Says His State Is Just As Bad As


Bill Martin

People who live in
California incorrectly think that immigration impacts
them far more than it does the rest of America. But

is just as bad.

I live in a

suburb.  The Hispanic population within the

city limits is almost 33 percent—almost all
brought on by

illegal entry
into the U.S.

Chicago suburbs are
being transformed into Los Angeles with Hispanics
overwhelming almost every suburb—Aurora 33 percent
Hispanic, Carpentersville, 44 percent and Waukegan, 55

Wherever one lives
in the Chicago metropolitan area, with a population of 9
million, a person cannot step outside without seeing the

Hispanic domination
created by illegal immigration.
This transformation has occurred over the past forty

A Reader Pledges
Loyalty To VDARE.COM—Despite Paul Craig Roberts


[Name Withheld]

I am a huge fan of VDARE.COM,
which I discovered several years ago after reading
Alien Nation
notes (again):

Download it free

I have contributed several times; I
wish my student status allowed me to give more.  I have
the highest respect for you and your writers because of
the way you have fought against overwhelming odds to try
to dispel the often astounding ignorance of Americans
regarding immigration.

I am writing to
express my concern as a loyal reader that the site is
being undermined by

Paul Craig Roberts
.  I know you have addressed the
matter before, and feel obliged by your old friendship
to stand by him.  But the blunt truth is that his
rantings make him come off as a lunatic. People who
might otherwise take an interest in VDARE.COM are no
doubt driven away by his opinions.

Someone might
incorrectly assume that your site is run by crackpots.

Jared Taylor
also voices opinions well outside the
mainstream, but Taylor supports his views with much data
and expresses himself eloquently. The same cannot be
said of Roberts.

Incidentally, I am
no fan of Bush or his

neocon cabal. 

If Roberts
continues to be posted on VDARE.COM, I will remain
a devoted reader. I submit my concerns about
Roberts humbly.  I just hate to see all the good work
you and your staff do undermined by Roberts`
increasingly bizarre writings.

Thanks for all your
work on behalf of our country.

Peter Brimelow

Sigh. We have received many similar letters recently. As
I`ve said before, we run syndicated columnists

Michelle Malkin

Paul Craig Roberts


Pat Buchanan

(nobody seems to object to him—funny thing)
because they are among the few MSM writers sensible
about immigration. As we have to pay for all their
columns, we run them all. But we don`t necessarily
endorse all their opinions on everything, which (as
readers have noticed) often contradict each other.

But I must say
(again) that I do wish Craig, whom I`ve known for nearly
40 years and who has been a good friend both to
VDARE.COM and to me personally, would go back to writing
more about immigration

A Colorado Reader
Denounces North American Union, Praises New Corsi Book


Fred Sands [e-mail

Re: Brenda Walker`s

Gangocracy—The Downside Of Abolishing The Nation-State

are deliberately being kept from learning the truth
about what President Bush and the

Council on Foreign Relations

power elite who control him

are planning to do to our nation.

In 2005,
George Bush met with the leaders of Canada and

and signed the
“Security and Prosperity Partnership”
whereby all
three nations would be merged into the

North American Union


with Mexico and
Canada will be erased and

millions more poor Mexicans
will be allowed to flood
into America taking more jobs and demanding

social benefits
and free medical care. Our leaders

not want any borders.
That`s why President Bush has
deliberately left our Mexican border unsecured. 

important book, The Late Great USA
Jerome Corsi has just been published. Every American
should read it.

Here`s a key quote
from Corsi`s introduction:

Today, we again face the possibility that the United States of
America may not long endure. Our national sovereignty is
in danger of being compromised in favor of an emerging
regional government, designed of the elite, by the
elite, and for the elite, who are working to achieve
global ambitions in the pursuit of wealth and power for
themselves. There are movements afoot in

Mexico, Canada, and the United States
, similar to
those in Europe that led tot the formation of the

European Union
that, if left unchecked, will

erode U.S. sovereignty
and lead to a North American

The North American
Union concept has not been presented to Congress, is
kept as much as possible under wraps from the American
people and is never mentioned in the MSM.

Bush, who wanted to
amnesty millions of illegal alien Mexicans, keeps
everyone in the dark.
