"There is a troublesome humour some men have, that if they may not lead, they will not follow, but had rather a thing were never done, than not done their own way, though otherwise very desirable." -- William Penn (1644-1718), Some Fruits of Solitude, 1693

(I guess some things never change.... sounds a lot like today's liberals doesn't it?)

Note that throughout this article the author equates "foreign born" with "illegal Immigrants."  Also note in paragraph 3 the reference to the "Rio Bravo."  The name Rio Bravo is an old name for the Rio Grande and at it closest point is 575 miles from San Diego.  So much for the intellectual validity of the author I guess:  http://www6.lexisnexis.com/publisher/EndUser?Action=UserDisplayFullDocument&orgId=574&topicId=100046854&docId=l:717319953&start=15
