Politically Incorrect in the New America

Politically Incorrect in the New America

In case no one has noticed, we are living in the “New America”. I went to bed one night and felt really good about being an American citizen. However, now I’m getting ready to get in trouble the way Michelle Obama did for a similar statement. I felt really good about being an American citizen until I realized that there is something wrong with being an American citizen.
What is wrong? American laws are no longer in the best interest of American citizens. The new Constitutional interpretations seem to favor the undocumented immigrant…I’m using the PC term because I don’t want to get slammed by using illegal immigrant.
The countries of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvadore, and Guatemala have really pulled a big one on us.
Who has ever thought that the U.S. had a law on the books that prevents us from rejecting people who illegally enter our country? And, that we have sanctuary cities that protect and harbor illegal immigrants? Is that illegal?
Then, we get all emotional because these people have endangered the lives of their children and somehow are making the American people responsible. Who sends their children to a foreign country in the hands of criminals and now cry foul that many of us want to send these children and their parents, aunts, uncles, and friends back to their countries of origin? I can hardly make any sense out of the behavior of these people. Child endangerment is a crime in the United States and far as I know, America did not steal these children. We did not steal 11+ million undocumented immigrants and we are not holding them for ransom.

Okay, these undocumented people are claiming rights in a country that is not theirs by citing the 1964 Civil Rights Act. One problem among many is that native born Black people were protesting for rights that were theirs guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. I don’t want to hear this rally cry, “We are a country of immigrants.” Well, in 2014, we are legal American citizens and those who have violated our immigration laws are undocumented and therefore, illegal-meaning they have broken an American law.

Next, since when is a sovereign nation required to change any of its laws based upon people who have illegally entered that nation? If I want to change anything in America, I stay here in America to legally fight that fight, not go to France or Mexico to protest they give me “rights”. Why does this sound crazy to me? Was there a mass illegal migration of American Blacks to any other country during the time when they were lynched, beaten, and experienced many other indignities too numerous to mention? I missed that part of the Civil Rights struggle. To my knowledge, the answer is no…with the help of some justice-minded American White people, American Blacks stayed home, here in America and fought the good fight.

Dream Acts and any other act that does not uplift the plight of so many disadvantaged American citizens mainly veterans, elderly, and children is not acceptable. We are told that they are escaping gangs, violence, poverty, etc. well, guess what? We have families trapped in places like Chicago and Detroit who are dreaming of leaving these cities so that their children can escape gangs, violence, and poverty…American citizens. Doesn’t charity begin at home? What is Washington thinking when there is so much poverty and crime in America and their focus is on illegal immigrants and their plight?

So, I am not in favor of the New America. I am not in favor of accepting other countries’ responsibilities such as thousands of their children having been deposited on our doorsteps. I am not in favor of accepting the demands of illegal immigrants to take care of them because they chose to leave their home countries. O’Reilly stated a figure that 50% of immigrant families in America are receiving government assistance. I won’t go into the hell I experienced trying to get assistance for my parent after his medicine overwhelmed his paycheck . He had only worked for over 75 years and paying taxes and served in the military.
I am in favor of humane treatment for those illegally crossing America’s border: a hot shower, a meal, change of clothes, immediate medical attention, temporary shelter for no longer than two weeks, and a trip back home to your country of origin. Fight your fight for freedom and rights in your country of origin. I guess this makes me politically incorrect in the New America. May God continue to Bless America…she is in trouble. And, American citizens are afraid to speak up even as they watch their own standard of living disappear. Ah, the New America.

What Is Going On?

Has anyone wondered “what is going on?” Well, I have and decided that there is so much going on today that it can make one’s head spin. It boggles my mind that as American citizens, we take our citizenship and its responsibility very lightly.

What does it mean to be an American citizen? Sure, many of us vote, but after that, our responsibility is done until the next election. But our participation should begin with the voting in of our representatives.

Have we forgotten to hold our elected officials accountable for their behaviors? Judging from how our country appears to be headed towards becoming a third world country, I will say, most of us are asleep at the wheel as the car continues on its collision course.

I read a book that said that we (Americans) make too much of a big deal about citizenship and that is why we oppose illegal immigration.
This author suggests that there should be no such thing as “American citizenship” to the degree that we want foreigners to follow our rules to enter this country.

I guess what concerns me is that while some of us are asleep, some foreigners who have come here without going through lawful channels, are being given a card issued by their governments (not the U.S. government) that entitles them to make loans, and get educational benefits, and all of the benefits that American citizens are often denied. How does a foreign country come into America, set up shop, distribute a card that gives the foreign illegals the means to access American banking services and privileges ?

What is a sanctuary city? Does this go against foreign immigration policy? Who is watching our borders? And, if we are “at war” how is it that 11 million people just walked in and now demand citizens’ rights? We are frisked at airports for our safety and telephone records fair game for the government to take a look. What part of this am I not understanding?

Am I against immigration? Absolutely Not. However, how do you maintain a sovereign country if the laws are not obeyed and enforced? Why has our government turned a blind eye to sealing our borders? As a world power, can we not protect our borders?  and why is our government making it very comfortable for people who spit in the face of America’s laws to stay here? When we were asleep, were we invaded and now we, the American people must pay the invaders? What is going on? I hear one politician after another saying, “Oh, well, we can’t do anything about it now. Let’s give them…..fill in the blank.” What is going on? Americans need jobs and educational dream acts (free college educations-we have some smart Americans who need a break, too.)

Cheap labor diminishes the worker both legal and illegal. Will the now illegal immigrant still work for low wages once he/she gets amnesty? We will soon see. What are your opinions about any of this article. I have plenty of questions…just seeking clarity and not trying to disrespect or to be hateful to anyone.

Just asking because as an American citizen, last time I checked, the Constitution guarantees my freedom to do so. My belief in human rights does not permit me to act in a cruel or harmful manner but without enforced laws, chaos reigns and civilization suffers. All laws are not good laws, but as a citizen of a sovereign country, there is a process in America that may be used by American citizens to repeal such laws.

Wouldn’t it make sense for people to use their own legal systems to improve their own countries? Or, demonstrate, demand, etc. to put in a legal system to improve their own governance? The countries of many of these illegal immigrants are not poor countries.Some are resource rich with a poor distribution of wealth…fight to change that in your own country.

I don’t recall American citizens taking to the streets of a foreign country demanding “rights”. Are there foreign countries in which American citizens may walk in regardless of that country’s laws on immigration, demonstrate, demand, coerce, falsify records, steal identities, receive free medical and dental care at world class facilities, free education in their native language, public assistance for food and shelter? If so, I want to know…of course, I need to find 11-12 million of my closest friends and relatives to get there so we may make our numbers count.

Well, I love America…this is the home of my forefathers, this is my home. The only country I know to call home. This is where I hope to make a positive difference. So, my 11-12 million closest friends and relatives will have to be content to stay here at home and strive to make positive differences in our home…not to disrupt and disrespect someone else’s home.  Comments welcome, no hatred or prejudice, please.
