From: Another [!] English Immigrant

I enjoyed reading

to the debate, cogent
as always.

However I think
you are being a little optimistic in stating that `By
2000, whites were down to 75.1%.
` As I`m sure you
are aware, the U.S. Government definition of who is
white does cast the net rather wide.

To what extent
would you go along with the notion that the US has
passed the

point of no return
demographically, and that, for
the next generation or two, the only realistic option is
to head north and west?  After that, Civil War II?

In my own neck of
the woods (California wine Country) 1/3 of the local
population and 55% of the school enrolment is Hispanic.

next stop?

The reason I bring
this up, as another expatriate Brit although from South
Manchester not leafy Cheshire I`m afraid, is that I`m
wondering whether your talents might be better employed
in helping the Euros to think through their immigration
dilemma rather than running the risk of being had up for
cruelty to dead horses Stateside.

After all Europe
is probably still salvageable whereas North America
probably is not. And we may all need to go back there
some day.

Peter Brimelow comments:

extraordinary how often this idea of abandoning North
America comes up, and usually from native-born Americans
too. Quite frequently, it`s the next thing people say
right after denying that immigration is a problem at

I`ve said

, despair is a sin
in politics as it is in Christian theology. You just
never know what`s going to turn up. It took thirty years

the first Great Wave of
Immigration; if that`s repeated, immigration could be
completely cut off by 2010. And, as James Fulford notes
today, immigration can be painlessly reversed. For
example, switching off the Federal government`s

Doomsday Machine
, whereby
immigrants are immediately eligible for Affirmative
Action quotas, would in effect reduce the policy-induced
demand for immigrants. Anyway, the U.S. is a big place:
there`s a lot to be salvaged from the wreck.

Plus I prefer the climate.

p.s. of course, the Census does define “white” too
broadly. But

some portion
of the
“Hispanic” category is white. And more (along with some
Asians) could probably be drawn into the “white” (or as
I would

, “American”)
political coalition.
