Changing Our Country

Changing Our Country

John F. Kennedy wrote a small book in 1958 titled "A Nation of Immigrants" promoting freer immigration policies. It was the blueprint for a law that President Kennedy proposed in 1963, shortly before his assassination, to eliminate racial discrimination inherent in the nation's immigration system.

Two years later, JFK's "A Nation of Immigrants" idea became the The Immigration and Nationality Act Amendments of 1965 pushed through Congress with little fanfare as a tribute to the fallen president by his brothers, Edward and Robert Kennedy.

If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity." John F. Kennedy

A Nation of Immigrants

You know what? America really is a nation of immigrants. Our parents, aunts and uncles and grandparents come from every country in the world and pretty much we all get along okay. Separatism was allowed in some areas but generally we assimilated with each other quite well.

Marrying each others sons and daughters, working side by side with recent legal immigrants doesn't seem to bother most Americans. From what I've seen in my 56 years we generally attempt to assist the newcomer to assimilate into our communities with ease. During lunch we ask questions about what their life was like in their home country and we tell stories our grandparents told us about what it as like back where our national heritage stemmed from.

Today our life is different. We have illegal aliens coming into our country who are refusing to assimilate and become part of our communities. They are refusing to speak English, demanding that we provide Spanish dialect speaking teachers. Abusing every welfare program that we have is intentional. Flipping their finger at the local cops who patrol their neighborhoods is a sign that they will continue to disobey our laws. Hit and run automobile accidents are so common today that our insurance rates have snowballed out of sight.

Somewhere along the line we were tricked. Yeah, I mean plain ole snookered into believing that what comes from the courtrooms or from Congress just has to be good for our beloved United States of America. We have the hardest damn time believing that another American would do something to intentionally hurt our beautiful country. The definition of "leader and/or leadership" was changed without any public discussion whatsoever.

First was President Nixon and his EPA's long discussions of biological diversity and the need to preserve native plants and animals . That makes sense if you enforce the plan with common sense. We weren't told that common sense would be prohibited from this idea. A multiple-species community doesn't mean what you and I think it does, but that's another subject.

Then out came the hyphenated heritage designations and secular flock titles, Irish-American, Chinese-American, French-American, Philippine-American, English-American,and Irish Catholics, American Jews, etc. This ticked off quite a few people because they had always considered themselves to be Americans first. Their great grandparents were the Irish, came from Ireland and when they were able to qualify for US citizenship, Americans. All descendants of them were just plain old Americans because they were born on America's soil. Many of these foreigners and first term Americans fought and died for America in the Wars. This was what brought our patriotism to the front porches of our homes and Main Street parades on July 4th. Secular divisions? What business is it of any political group what religion you are? As long as it isn't violent, stay out of that persons religious beliefs!

Bring forth the slow dilution and extinction of our Republic.

In the seventies and eighties, national origins, multiculturalism, and diversity became the key terms to the new political organizations and advocacy groups.

Electoral speeches all had to have the words "tolerance of diversity and cross-cultural effectiveness" to be considered acceptable. Politically acceptable speeches now were the only ones permitted to be broadcast on public radio and television stations.

Any subject deemed controversial was prohibited. You are subject to personal and financial discipline for mentioning anything that possibly stigmatizes or victimizes an individual on the basis of race or ethnicity.

Discriminatory admissions policies were used to buffer the mistermed diversity programs, actually separatist. If your heritage was from certain countries you would be admitted to the nations best colleges and universities using a point system. This commitment to ethnic freedom is even more insincere than a politician tromping about shaking hands for re-election votes.

The publicly stated basis of all of this was to cure discriminations of the past 150 years. Any group with self prejudicial beliefs of inferiority, mental or physical disabilities, poverty or lower education levels is eligible to apply for tax dollars free government funds available in dozens of entitlement programs. These politically controversial goals were a winner for the Democrats, so the Republicans decided to get in line with cash baskets of their own. They started promoting new programs, ignoring the past conservative moral traditions of "self responsibility". Today "self responsibility" is considered a fault in a persons character. You are viewed as a problem child who may not stand in line when told to do so.

With both major parties tossing tax dollars free government funds into the air for any all to reach out for, illegal immigration has once again became a national problem for the citizen who pays the bills. Police chiefs are afraid to publicly mention the actual numbers of illegal aliens in their jails fearing the numbers might prompt demonstrations. They have resorted to saying these costs are provided for with tax dollars federal government funds. (just a semi-lie) They keep forgetting to say "partially"! Then the profiling of criminals was outlawed to the detriment of many once reasonably safe cities. An officer must now justify, as if he were on the witness stand, every stop-and-question he undertakes of an illegal alien. There's no such requirement for a stop-and-question of white Americans.

Our current batch of sorry assed politicians in Congress and the Senate consider these entitlement programs woefully underinclusive, denying this giveaway franchise from their cohorts in local politics. So they keep pushing for larger pork barrels in the budgets. Governors are doing their best to keep up with the mad rush to give America away, demanding larger state budgets every term.

While giving speeches, being surrounded by parasites is considered an honor if you are a leader politician. Constitutional commitments to Oaths of Office are disregarded without fear of prosecution, shame or guilt now. Preaching the diversity lie appears to be a sure re-election tactic to the party leaders liars.

Have you ever heard of the word "essentialism" (n) -The practice of categorizing a group based on an artificial social construction that imparts an "essence" of that group, which homogenizes the group and effaces individuality and difference.

Was this part of "The United Nations Agenda 21 Plan"?

The illegal alien population in the United States today is more than twice the total of 1986. By using diversity and "essentialism" our political and judicial leader liars have once again separated America into racial and ethnic groups.

Was this part of "The Plan"? I think so. My reasoning for this is because under federal guidance we are looking at our neighbors and co-workers wondering if the grandparents or parents perhaps overstayed a visitors visa fifteen or twenty years ago. We are wondering if we can trust someone who speaks with an accent, could they be a criminal and just hasn't been arrested yet. Should we report our suspicians to the Border Patrol.

We have been intentionally divided in hyphenated heritage congregations and secular flocks. The reason for dividing us into small groups who quickly question the motives of all other groups is to make it difficult for us to join together and fight a common problem. Having ten small uncoordinated groups threatening you is much easier to deal with than having one large determined group, with a common purpose, surrounding your home or office.

Public resources are being spent on, confining, investigating crimes, injuries and deaths of illegal aliens. Hispanic and Latino political organization advocacy groups are demanding driving rights for themselves, criminal aliens. The security of your state drivers license identification has diminished because of nationwide counterfeiting and corrupt DMV employees.

Do not be surprised if Homeland Security says it cannot stop this from continuing and America must have a National Identification Card Program.

We are under attack by two predators, illegal aliens and ineffective and/or corrupt government officials.

How can government officials ignore the massive invasion of illegal immigrants. President Bush refuses to speak on the subject. According to a recent poll, 80+% of American citizens consider this to be a greater threat than terrorists to our national sovereignty and financial security.

Could this be a challenge to see if the once proud American citizens will actually fight for their own national sovereignty and financial security on American soil? Our troops don't have any difficulty fighting on foreign soil for the benefit of foreigners.

Mexico and 300 other nations send their lower class citizens to America for us to provide for their education, medical and income via jobs at the cost to American taxpayers and jobs.

The "Slide" has become a socialistic free fall.

The Republican Socialist Party has made many changes without informing it's membership under this president.

Our political leaders liars are refusing to:

Just imagine what the effect would be in each city if just four Border Patrol agents dressed in uniform, stopped into each and every local business, would do for American jobs. A polite warning to the manager that next week the allowance of illegal workers will result in $10,000 fines. Then next week an undercover agent with a video camera photographs all workers catching anyone who refused to obey the law. The fines would pay for the busses needed to transport the criminals home, I'm sure.

This would be a dream come true!

Enforcing written law seems to be a real difficulty with this administration. Why?

Well, to be fair, it is not just this administration.

I think the giant CA grower's lobby has something to do with it. (i.e. Dole, Bud, T&A, etc. It is to their benefit to hire illegals.)

The DREAM Act would give legal and permanent status to tens of thousands of children of undocumented immigrants. The bill, whose name is an acronym for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, was sponsored by Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican. It recently passed in the Senate Judiciary Committee and is awaiting a full vote by the Senate.

If anyone promotes violating the laws of America, it is the duty of elected all officials to refuse to do so.

Reelection to office shouldn't come from violations that benefit corporations. We are a nation of people, not corporations.

No, a third party because the two that have been in control are sending America down the toilet with repeated flushes. This Agenda 21 Plan of equalizing the world economies is not what I fought for. America didn't become the world strongest nation by asking for assistance. We built this country and we now need to fight to keep it as a republic, not a member of the UN under control of the UN.

Our elected leaders liars are doing things that we should be ashamed of.

Mass Immigration Cost

a package of 34 treaties, all of which were ratified by a show of hands -- no recorded vote

Social Engineering-"Smart Growth" is "Agenda 21"

Do we continue to sit in our comfortable chairs watching America free fall and prepare ourselves for the thud that destroys our childrens futures or do we stand up and fight for them?

What I want is any candidate to say that they want to stop illegal immigration, they'd have my vote, it matters that much to me.

I am a realist, pragmatist, I know "what's doable". No, I won't take my firearm to street and demand justice. I have a family to support, and don't want to be in prison.

I will vote and support my causes where I can and when I have motivation to do so...It is so frustrating.

What 3rd party were you referring to earlier? They may get my vote.

That I'm waiting to see who steps up and has a workable plan to clean up what the R's and D's have done to America. I sure hope they step up soon.

I know very little about them, but there is the Constitution Party. The following is from their 2000 National Platform:


We affirm the integrity of the international borders of the United States and the Constitutional authority and right of the federal government to guard and to protect those borders, including the regulation of the numbers and of the qualifications of immigrants into the country.

Each year some 972,000 legal immigrants and hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enter the United States. These immigrants — including illegal aliens — have been made eligible for various kinds of public assistance, including housing, education, Social Security, and legal services. This unconstitutional drain on the federal Treasury is having a severe and adverse impact on our economy, increasing the cost of government at federal, state, and local levels, adding to the tax burden, and stressing the fabric of society. The mass importation of people with low standards of living threatens the wage structure of the American worker and the labor balance in our country.

We favor a moratorium on immigration to the United States, except in individual hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances, until the availability of all federal subsidies and assistance be discontinued.

We also insist that every individual group and/or private agency which requests the admission of an immigrant to the U.S., on whatever basis, be required to commit legally to provide housing and sustenance for such immigrants, bear full responsibility for the economic independence of the immigrants, and post appropriate bonds to seal such covenants.

The Constitution Party demands that the federal government restore immigration policies based on the practice that potential immigrants will be disqualified from admission to the U.S. if, on the grounds of health, criminality, morals, or financial dependence, they would impose an improper burden on the United States, any state, or any citizen of the United States.

We oppose the provision of welfare subsidies and other taxpayer-supported benefits to illegal aliens, and reject the practice of bestowing U.S. citizenship on children born to illegal alien parents while in this country.

We oppose any extension of amnesty to illegal aliens.

We oppose bilingual ballots. We insist that those who wish to take part in the electoral process and governance of this nation be required to read and comprehend basic English as a precondition of citizenship. We support English as the official language for all governmental business by the United States.

This nation of immigrants thing, what a lie. The founders of this nation were British subjects settling British territory that was part of the British Empire who rebeled and formed their own nation.

The nation that has been built here and the attendent wealth and luxury therein was built by native Americans whose linage went back generations. We are not immigrants, we are the legitimate citizens of America who have a right to say stop, enough, our responsibility to the nation and the preservation of the Consitution and our culture precludes futher immigration.

What we have now is a government who feels that it no longer answers to the legitimate citizens of this nation and attempts to slip the bonds of those citizens that it is answerable to by overwhelming them with psudo-citizens and illegal invaders. Redress of grievances and the ballot box are dead ends, so what are we going to do about it?

The Constitution Party is the closest thing for me, with their affiliation with the Independent American Party.

Both are very strong on proper immigration policy and about every other issues you can name from my perspective.

Here's the American Independent Party mission:

To promote respect for life, liberty and property; strong traditional families; patriotism; and individual, state and national sovereignty -- with a strong reliance on the Declaration of Independence and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America -- by petition to God and by political and educational means.
The last election the Independent American Party supported the Constitution Party candidate for President. It's going to take that type of coming together of such constitutinally based parties...and a huge growth of effect the needed change.
