+Eliman Gibba Eliman Gibba, I am at peace and cool headed because I know the truth of this great country. The truth is the history, and history can't be distorted, or changed. When we allow our history to be changed, truth is changed. The history of this country is far from perfect; however, whenever there have been circumstances of inequality, America has looked at them and changed for the better, if the decision reflects democratic principles to become a stronger republic.
+John Hargis Sr John said, "then take those idea's and create a society in your own country." I haven't read his this book, but I know enough of America's history to say that's how our country started. A group of men decided they were tired of tyranny, and revolted to create a republic run on capitalism. This means citizens follow the law, and participate to uphold our Constitution!
Our country grew from people legally immigrating, and participating in democracy to continue the history of our republic. Key word PARTICIPATION!!! Not individuals crossing the border, working, then taking the money back to their country...that they didn't have the courage to revolt against to create FREEDOM!!!
We have been the greatest country in the history of the world because of our republic!!!
To clarify history, you said "'someone,' said a few decades ago 'tear down this wall." That was President Reagan, and that wall represented tyranny during the Cold War (check your history on that.) That wall was not to keep out illegal immigrants, it was to enslave and lock people behind the "Iron curtain!" They didn't have a chance to leave it.
You also said, "Respect immigrants regardless of their status.” Successful people in the history of this country believe, "nothing is deserved, only earned." There are no handouts for successful people, and they know in their hearts respect is earned. We work for it because we have the freedom to do so, that's why President Reagan urged the General Secretary of the Communist Party, Gorbachev to tear down the wall.
Russia decided to change because the people preferred democracy not communism, people in other countries can also decide to change towards democracy.
"Without law, there can be no freedom."
Know the Republic, know freedom. I encourage you to watch this, and ask yourself is the law necessary?And to the Republic for which it stands, ONE Nation...
God bless America! Change it, or leave it!
