Protecting the national identity of the USA
- United States of America
The idea of America being a multicultural community --- which has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. We have to stop worrying about whether we are offending some individual or his culture. After the terrorist attacks on 9/11, the majority of Americans came together bound by patriotism. However, it wasn't long before the "politically correct" group began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending "others" -- our own enemies!
I am not against immigration. Our population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants. However, there are some things those who have recently come to our country both legally and illegally, and some born here, need to understand. As Americans, we have our OWN culture, our OWN society, our OWN language and our OWN lifestyle -- developed over centuries of struggles, trials and errors and victories of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the Language! If you don't like our customs, our lifestyle, why did you come here?
Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion, and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But, once you're done complaining, whining, griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, our way of life, God as a part of our Culture, Christian principles which founded this nation, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom: The right to leave!
As Americans, we have our OWN culture, our OWN society, our OWN language and our OWN lifestyle -- developed over centuries of struggles, trials and errors and victories of men and women who have sought freedom.
Those immigrants that don't accept our customs should leave the country.
