it's a conspiracy. Truly it is.
with regards to Australia, it was so easy in the 1960s
that they had a special program offering a boat trip to emigrate there
for only 10 pounds!
With regards to the USA it was also at one time far easier than it is
now, but all that changed with a major new immigration law that was
passed in 1965. Ever since 1965 the US immigration laws have favoured
South east asian (chinese/mongoloid and more recently indian and
pakistani) immigrants, and made it more difficult for europeans.
It is to all intents and purposes impossible for europeans to
immigrate to th US now, unless they marry an american citizen, or are
some kind of world class rocket scientist.
Even Canada now, which was traditionally the easiest place of all to
emmigrate to, is difficult.
Some, would blame a sinister group of shaddowy figures who's name is
spoken every 5 minutes on this newsgroup. I'll let you draw your own
conclusions, but it's very clear that it has been made virtually
impossible for english speaking whites to emmigrate to english
speaking countries, which should be the most natural places for them
to go to. MEanwhile, the US Australia, Canada, are all now being
swamped by non emglish speaking immigrants.
I'd like to read a well researched book on the subject but as yet have
been unable to find one.
