Borders are important defined boundaries of a nation. Thousands of people, maybe more, attempt to cross it everyday. Most make it, due to poor funding for border patrols, and corruption within border patrols. Our leaders have done nothing to stem the flow, and the faux conservative George W. Bush (King George II), actually encouraged migrant workers to spill over the border and bring down the standard of living. Both parties are in a tango with treason on this issue, and refuse to follow the will of the American people.
Language is how a society communicates, shares ideas, and advances itself spiritually, socially, and technologically. Unfortunately, the United States has never declared an official language. As a result, we waste millions of dollars to print out forms in forty-seven different languages to accomodate non-english speakers. As a result, a large percentage of the population cannot communicate with each other, again stifling unity between citizens.
Culture is an important pillar of a sovereign nation as well. Every nation has its own culture, but America is very different. While the United States used to have a very strong culture, it's fading fast. Multi-culturalism is once again the villian, as we encourage people to cling to the culture they came from, we do nothing to help them embrace ours. Let's look at a few examples of how multi-culturism has watered down the American Culture. Do you know what date Flag Day is? Do you know when Washington's birthday is, or even Presidents' Day? Did you know that the United States Marine Corp surrounded Mexico City, and could have crushed the entire country, but showed incredible mercy by allowing Mexico to continue to exist. Did you know Marines were called leathernecks, and their original purpose was to combat pirates? Did you know American lost more of her sons in the Civil War than in any other war in history? Do you know when election day is held? Most people can't answer half of these questions.
So, here I am in the salad bowl. I'm trying to embrace the American Culture, but it's a lonely task. Blogging is one way to embrace our culture, after all, freedom of speech is the foundation of our Bill of Rights. I was born in '81, so I probably don't have an accurate perception of the American Culture, but here's what I've got so far.
Rely on yourself, you don't need the Government's help.
Speak English, it's the frickin' language of the motherland.
Be well armed and capable of defending yourself, your family, and your community.
Always respect our flag, and those that died defending her.
I want to make sure I'm clear on this point. I'm not attacking people for bringing pinatas to the birthday party. I don't have a problem with throwing a quincenera, or having an Oktoberfest. I'm not asking our immigrants to push away their culture, just that they embrace American culture.
Tyranny is a much easier practice over a divided population that can't even communicate in the same language. The attack on our borders, language, and culture, is a knife through the heart of our sovereignty, and seems to be coming from both sides of the aisle.
