Something else to think about is that jobs are NOT infinite. There are a limited number of jobs in this country, and we are a country of over 300,000,000 people! Yet, we keep inviting more and more people in. "Oh, sure, come on in." "Oh you came here illegal, that's okay, AMNESTY FOR ALL!" Good Lord! We're killing ourselves.

million Americans in 1950, an additional 155 million persons were added to the population
between 1950 and 2009, with the number of additional women slightly outnumbering additional

remarkable compared with other industrialized countries. Germany and Italy, for instance, grew
by only 21% and 30% respectively during the same period.6 And, a number of countries, most
notably in Eastern Europe, have recently experienced absolute reductions in the size of their
