    Will we still be the Country of choice and still
    be America if we continue to make the changes
    forced on us by the people from other countries
    that came to live in America because it is the
    Country of Choice???

    Think about it.

    All I have to say is, when will they do something
    about MY RIGHTS? I celebrate Christmas, but
    because it isn't celebrated by everyone, we can
    no longer say Merry Christmas. Now it has to be
    Season's Greetings. It's not Christmas vacation,
    it's Winter Break. Isn't it amazing how this
    winter break ALWAYS occurs over the Christmas
    holiday? We've gone so far the other way, bent
    over backwards to not offend anyone, that I am
    now being offended. But it seems that no one has
    a problem with that. This says it all!

    This is an editorial written by an American citizen,
    published in a Tampa newspaper. He did quite a job;
    didn't he? Read on, please!

    IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT.

    I am tired of this nation 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.

    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 America.

    Our population is almost entirely made up of
    descendants of immigrants.

    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 being a multicultural
    community has served only to dilute our
    sovereignty and our national identity.

    As Americans, 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, not Spanish, Portuguese,
    Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any
    other language.

    Therefore, if you wish to become part of
    our society, learn the language!

    "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 and
    Stripes offend you, or you don't like
    Uncle Sam, 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.


    This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our
    lifestyle. Our First Amendment gives every
    citizen the right to express his opinion
    and we will allow you every opportunity
    to do so. But once you are done complaining,
    whining, and griping about our flag, our
    pledge, our national motto, or our way of
    life, I highly encourage you take advantage
    of one other great American freedom, THE
    RIGHT TO LEAVE.

    If you agree -- pass this along;
    if you don't agree -- delete it!

    AMEN

    I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it
    will also, sooner or later get back to the complainers, lets all try,
    please .....
