I am an American…………….


We have all been trying to figure out, *most Americans anyway* as to why America is in the decline it is in.

The story has been told about assimilating to be American, instead of being part of this country but retaining your original country’s origins. There is where the problem lies mostly. Here is a great post from a friend of mine who writes the blog Political Pistachio and is also an AM, FM and Blog Talk radio talk show host in California. This one is a must read:

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Last Night, as the sandwich shop employee assembled my foot-long oven roasted masterpiece, and my wife’s cold cut combo, I got to talking to the gentleman in line behind me. He made reference, after quipping we are losing our rights and freedoms, that a red star is on California’s flag for a reason. I understood the communist reference, chuckled, and then the man said that it could be worse. He’s originally from New York, and at least here he’s not limited to the size of soda he can buy.

He said that when he was a kid, he should have seen this coming. One of his elementary teachers asked that in the class for all Americans to stand up. He said he was the only one who climbed to his feet. The children in that class, even though born in the United States, considered themselves to be more associated with the nation of their ancestors, than the nation of their birth.

A few weeks ago a member of my Constitution Class asked me what the Founding Fathers would think of dual citizenship. She figured they wouldn’t be hip with the concept of sharing one’s allegiance with another country, in addition to their loyalties to the United States. She was right. The plan of the deconstructionists, and the work of over a hundred years of socialist infiltration and indoctrination, has finally brought America to a point that the leaders of the Soviet Union often spoke about. We would someday cease to be America, and we would do it to ourselves.

During the American Revolution only a third of the young country’s population supported the fight for independence. Another third of the country was indifferent, willing to live under whatever rule emerged victorious from the hostilities. The final third were “loyalists.” These Tories were loyal to The Crown, considering themselves to be British Subjects. They saw the revolutionary effort to break away from Britain as being treasonous. These were the people that sabotaged the American war effort, and did what they could to discourage the effort towards independence.

After the American Revolution ended, most of the Tories headed for Great Britain. Some remained behind. The British did not recognize the United States as being a sovereign country, and believed that the petulant colonies would come crawling back to the King, asking for forgiveness, in due time. After all, believed the British, and their loyal subjects in America, self-governance is a losing proposition, and in the long run would fail, and the hungry colonists would come crawling back to the British Empire.

The Tories that remained behind in the young United States tried to infiltrate the system, sabotage local politics, and convince the wayward Americans to return to the Mother Country.

The Founding Fathers, in turn, demanded full allegiance to America. For example, the definition of Natural Born Citizen required that both parents of the American in question had to be American citizens at the time of the birth of the subject in order for him to be considered natural born. This would avoid people with divided loyalties from taking the presidency.

Assimilation was a key to becoming an American. Immigrants were always welcomed, but under the condition that they properly navigated the processes of coming to America, and that they become fully American, and shed their loyalties to the country of their birth.

George Washington, in a letter to John Adams, stated that immigrants should be absorbed into American life so that “by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, laws: in a word soon become one people.”

In a 1790 speech to Congress on the naturalization of immigrants, James Madison stated that America should welcome the immigrant who could assimilate, but exclude the immigrant who could not readily “incorporate himself into our society.”

Alexander Hamilton wrote in 1802: “The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education and family.”

I am an American, through and through – and so is my wife. She was born in Mexico, and naturalized in 2007. If you ask her she does not say that she is Mexican, or Mexican-American. She will tell you straight to your face, “I am an American.”

Assimilation and the Founding Fathers – Patriot Post
Posted by Douglas V. Gibbs at 3:00 AM

Impressed? Yeah. This one hit it right on the money. If the founding fathers had not pushed for complete allegiance to this country, we would have never become great, and we may not have even succeeded. I have said for a long time that the way to go is, make English our national language, and stop coddling to other cultures.

We are Americans. And there is nothing arrogant about that. We have to assimilate to America, or it will cease to exist!

If you want to come here and live…..study our constitution, live the bill of rights. Learn what it means to be American…if it is still where you want to be, then go through the process of becoming an American.

Not an African-American.

Not an Egyption-American.

Not a German-American……but an AMERICAN.

That is the only way this country is going to survive. Cause if we do that, then we will stop voting for people who want to destroy her and we will stop trying to make America the bad guy and we will then start being proud to be AMERICAN! PERIOD!

Thanks Doug, for such a wonderfully truthful post….that needs to be read by everyone.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless our Patriots

    One need hang their head in shame being american / it being drone strikes alone
    (unmanned armed aircraft) killed many thousands worldwide / including hundreds
    of children. Puppet govts set up worldwide to serve their amercan masters / thus
    nations robbed of their resources which end up in the USA ( in the case of OIL it
    being the focus is to get the OIL without any regard to the damage by OIL spill….
    which can be vast destroying people’s land as means of making their living where
    the land as sea so polluted by OIL spills / nations people’s are left in dire poverty.

    The illegal invasion of IRAQ alone resulted over a million IRAQI people killed / a
    puppet govt put in place that be rotten with corruption leaving millions of IRAQI’s
    living in appalling conditions / deprived of the very basics of water food medicine.

    Shells used in the bombing of IRAQ having casings made of depleted uranium
    such depleted uranium responsible for children being born with deformities as
    many stillborn / such horror will continue for many decades/ contamination of
    by depleted uranium will continue bring death suffering to the people of IRAQ.

    Injustice by USA military & USA govt causes but suffering death worldwide
    it’s a horror story the USA media never allow in being told / thus the USA is
    put as the defender of democracy freedom / where reality it’s the butcher of
    humanity / USA military the worst terrorist organization the world has known.

    There be nothing about the USA to be proud or to praise / it’s the worlds
    biggest arms dealer / and sells arm to all sides in a conflict /if there’s no
    conflict then it will create a conflict / thus a market for their arms selling,
    with tobacco and it’s added highly addictive chemicals they kill millions
    worldwide as millions of their own people / profits from tobacco so vast
    political parties are funded by tobacco companies/ by $millions / USA
    political parties as many others govt’s worldwide then turn a blind eye
    to the death & great suffering tobacco and it’s added chemicals bring.

    To say America is great is true / however it be great liars / great cheats
    as great butchers of humanity /it be understandable people not wishing
    to call themselves American / In truth theyr’e ashamed to be American
    reply from Robert: I agree with Tom on this one. Shame on you WW.

    I look at WW’s comments above, and shake my head. No country, not even the US, has clean hands. However, to lay the blame for the world’s injustices and ignore past regimes of Pol Pot, Stalin, Idi Amin, and the current ones of Kim Jong Un, Iran, Syria, and all of the other warlords, despots, and dictators which cause far more suffering and human tragedies than what the US has ever done is myopic at best. Shame on you, sir.
    reply from Robert: My thoughts exactly.
