In Whig days, I would have been a Jeffersonian and Jacksonian Democrat and would have (as I do) despised the memory of Alexander Hamilton, ideological god(or whoever)father of the Whigs. In the late unpleasantness between Union and Confederacy, I would have been a decided proponent of the rights of secession contained in the Constitution of these previously United States. I suspect that PJB would have been the same on both counts. Like J. Edgar Hoover and General George Patton and William F. Buckley, Sr., I would probably have been a Democrat with a fond memory of Theodore Roosevelt well into the 20th Century. I would gladly have voted for Henry Jackson over George "Brainwashed" Romney or had Jeanne Kirkpatrick as Secretary of State over Colin Powell.

The distinguishing characteristic of "malum prohibitum" is that it is arbitrary and not commanded by moral law. It may even be diametrically opposed to moral law as in the Red Chinese "one child" policy (what part of ILLEGAL don't we American pro-lifers UNDERSTAND???) or telling Mexican people whose families are in grinding poverty that they may press their collective noses against our national shop window and drool in envy but not enter to provide work to willing employers or to be customers to willing sellers or to fill in the drastic (50 million and counting) gaps in population resulting from Planned Barrenhood, the Junior League and Roe vs. Wade. Malum Prohibitum on immigration is the other necessary route to Zero Population Growth societal calcification to go with the Malum Prohibitum tendencies of Roe vs. Wade (you have NOW MANY children????? Don't you know about birth control and abortion as necessary?????).

As to how the Hispanics are voting: In the 1970s, they voted 70% Demonrat and 30% Republican. That was then when Puerto Ricans and Cubans were the dominant groups of Hispanic voters, the former heavily Demonrat and the latter heavily Republican but far less numerous. I hear from frie ds in the Northeast that Puerto Ricans are, at long last, beginning to trend slightly in a GOP direction, say 15% or so and that Cubans are slightly more Demonratic, say 25% or so. In 2004, the Hispanic vote, as a whole, was 45% for Dubya, a very substantial increase from the 30% of two decades ago. When entrepeneurship does for Mexicans what it long ago did for similar immigrant groups, the numbers of GOP voters among them will rise fast enough. They are not coming north because they are lazy welfare louts who dream of their grandchildren being lazy welfare louts. They are coming north to escape the Mexican governmental system of enforced poverty and amorality. They probably cannot afford luggage even on a par with your immigrant ancestors or mine but they have the same dreams.

If we can keep our xenophobics, and Planned Barrenhood/ZPG types (posing as Republicans) at bay or, preferably, in cages and incommunicado, that Hispanic vote promises to be a GOP stromghold in another two decades.

Finally, as to PJB, he willingly listens to the likes of Justin Raimondo and antiwar.com. Fortunately, he is not in total compliance with Justin's moonbat brigade but PJB's judgment is not what it used to be.

To give a bit of red meat to the border obsessives: Vietnamese are "children of the east" as are the Hmong (only one of whom gunned down six Wisconsin hunters while) hundreds have gone from from family illiteracy to valedictorians of their high school classes here in one generation, and the Chinese victims of the one-child policy and Tibetans.

Pat also imagines the Zulu as something other than children of the west but he ought to pay a bit of attention to Mengistu Buthelezi, hereditary war chief of the Zulu, a graduate of distinguished western universities and the best friend that this nation ever had in the so-called Third World. As Buthelezi told an audience of 7 million Zulu as South Africa's apartheid was splintering: We have not come this far through apartheid to succumb at last to the slavery of Marxism-Leninism. PJB was wrong when he suggested that a community of Englishmen (assuming it was a representative community) would fit into America and the Virginia hills better than would the Zulu. Mandela was of the Xhosa who were/are/will be the traditional subjugated enemies of the Zulu just as our modern leftist and abortionist Demonratic enemies ought to become our traditional subjugated enemies.

Life would be less interesting if we were mere clones.

Merry Christmas and God bless you and all of yours!

Merry Christmas to you, as well.

I cannot pretend to know PJB's thoughts about various individuals or sub-groups and I do understand your concern about Justin RaiPinkDo.

I think PJB was more 'culture' than 'geography'-oriented in his remarks--which is to say, Christianity was the driver--certainly includes a lot of the Hmong/Vietnamese and a great number of Africans.

That said, you have yet to offer a proposal for immigration reform. Should/should not there be controls of ANY type? If so, what might they be?
