||The Right to Leave
The Right to Leave......
After hearing that the state of Florida changed its opinion and let a
Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's license with her face
covered , I believe this is even more appropriate.
Read on, please!
This is an editorial written by an American citizen,
published in a Tampa newspaper.
IMMIGRANTS, not Americans and Canadians, MUST ADAPT.
I am tired of this nations worrying about whether we are offending
some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept.
11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of
Americans and Canadians.
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the
"politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility
that our patriotism was offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone
who is seeking a better life by coming to North America.
Our population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to
our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.
This idea of America or Canada being a multi-cultural community has
served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As
Americans and Canadians, we have our own culture, our own society,
our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been
developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by
millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
We speak ENGLISH (and French in Quebec) - not Spanish, Arabic,
Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language.
Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the
"In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian,
right wing, political slogan.
We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian
principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is
certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If
God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world
as your new home, because God is part of our culture.
If Stars, Stripes and a Maple Leaf offend you, or you don't like Uncle
Sam or Beavers, then you should seriously consider a move to another
part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we
really don't care how you did things where you came from. These are
OUR COUNTRIES, our land, and our lifestyle.
Our First Amendment and in Canada, the Canadian Charter of Rights and
Freedoms, gives every citizen the right to express his or her opinion
and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But once you are
done complaining, whining, and griping about our flags, our pledge,
our national motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you to take
advantage of one other great American and Canadian freedom:
THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.
