Wisdom Of The Day: Thomas Jefferson


“Born in other countries, yet believing you could be happy in this, our laws acknowledge, as they should do, your right to join us in society, conforming, as I doubt not you will do, to our established rules.”

~ Thomas Jefferson

    And while they were encouraged to conform to our established rules immigration was a boon, though that was also largely due to our being a rapidly growing nation in actual need of population increase.

    None of that is true anymore.

    Immigrants are not only not encouraged to assimilate any more, they told time and time again that it’s wrong for them to do so or for Americans to demand that they do so.

    And we have no room and less jobs. We largely don’t need any more immigrants, especially ones that send what money they make to there own countries as remittances, thereby “robbing” the US economy of it.

    • Thank you for visiting and for commenting, jonolan. I think that you have certainly hit upon a true aspect to what immigration was about and how it has changed today. It is functionally useful for the immigrants to come to America still but their purpose serves a tremendously different need and I see it as a tool for the continued disintegration or our ideals as a nation. It is politically expedient for the Dems to have more population backing them without assimilation because it will be a greater wedge into traditional American values.

      The time is now that we need to seal our borders and be more selective in who is coming to America. There is NOT a “moral” responsibility to let anyone just walk into America as Obama says. Why would any country, that on one hand the President insists must be secular, be acting moral in the other hand? He is full of double speak and double entendres. Immigration is just one of many wedges that Obama is driving into America with the intent of breaking her back. Liberals, who have no concept of morals by the way, eat up the “moral” argument put out by Obama because they only associate morals with the ‘religious right’ and want anything that they can throw in the face of the other side of the political spectrum. The problem is that they don’t even understand that there is no such thing as a moral imperative to let anyone come into America. It further exposes the duplicitous hypocrisy of the left to have them decry religion in America(we’re a secular nation! they yell) while they applaud “moral imperatives” by Obama. Fakes and phonies.
