about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the
terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by
the majority of Americans. However, the dust from the attacks had barely
settled when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the
possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against
immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better
life by coming to America.
Our population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants.
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our
country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of
America being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our
sovereignty and our national identity.
As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and
our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of
struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have
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! "In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some
Christian, right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because
Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and
this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the
walls of our schools.
If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as
your new home, because God is part of our culture. If Stars and Stripes
offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider
a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really
don't care how you did things where you came from.
This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our lifestyle. 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 are done complaining, whining, and
griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life,
I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American
freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.
Please pass this along if you agree.
