Because freedom can't protect itself
In regards to day workers and the illegal immigrant issue, I'm all for people of any race and backround coming to the U.S. and starting a new life, just do it the right way. These people come here and work for cash to send back to their homeland, thats money leaving our economy and never being taxed. And what about the ones committing crimes who because their illegal cant be traced by law enforcement and held accountable.
TO SEND THEM BACK PRESS 2. Don't you people EVER stand up for the Law-Abiding LEGAL-AMERICAN CITIZEN? I agree we should let them into the country...LEGALLY. If I had a baby in another country, they don't become citizens of that country with full free benefits. So why do it here? Come on ACLU do something for the people of this country who are loosing everything and can't afford to live because MOST of our money is going to the people who you stand up for (Prisoner Rights, Illegal Immigrants, etc.) GIVE US A BREAK!!!
America Needs A Leader Like This!
[Prime Minister John Howard - Australia]
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques.
'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS , MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians, as we have never seen before.'
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH . not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, then you have no choice but to learn "our" language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, 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.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this But once you are finished complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom ..
'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
If you agree . please SEND THIS FORWARD . to EVERYONE you know!!
By the way, that coment from Australia is a haox and was never said by their PM.
