Patrick Buchanan Reflection

I'm leaving on business at the beginning of next week so I'll be "blogging lite" until next weekend. It's always nice to travel alone, meeting new people and seeing the United States from a different perspective.

With that said, I'd like to leave on a quote from Patrick Buchanan's new book, "State of Emergency," in which he talks about the current immigration issue. You can read all of Patrick Buchanan's articles here on his new website. He's quite the controversial politician and very outspoken, but he is a man of principles and very intelligent at that. Some are undoubtedly upset with him over his view of GWB and some administration policies but all in all, Buchanan is defending the conservative view and disagreements will occur.

The promised quote:

By 2050 there will be almost 2.5 times as many people here as in 1960: 420 million. The share of the population of European descent will be a minority as it is today in California, Texas and New Mexico. And that minority will be aging, shrinking and dying. There will be as many Hispanics here, 102 million, as there are Mexicans today in Mexico...
