I think you know who I am talking about, "Americans" who hate their country and blame America for all the world's problems while at the same time benefiting from all that being an American has to offer, freedom, opportunities, highest standard of living etc
Well yesterday I received an e-mail. I didn't know the sender and my policy is to NOT open any e-mail that I don't recognize. Well something made me feel it was ok so I opened it.
Evidently it was from someone who was forwarded an e-mail a friend of mine sent to a number of people, including myself, about illegals being able to recieve Pell Grants.
So here is the e-mail that this person a, firstname.lastname@example.org send to EVERYONE on the orginal forward list;
Unbelievable. Even though I KNOW the rhetoric of these apologists and America haters I am still as astounded at their hate for their country, my country, the country I love, the United States of America
So of course I replied to EVERYONE
No one doubts that a lot of illegals work hard, take care of their families and want a better life" but then again many do not. However what don't you understand about the word "illegal"? We have laws in this country. If you break them, you should reap the consequences. Coming to this country is a privilege, not a right. And we have the right to determine who we grant that privilege. Why should illegals be allowed to break the law and illegally enter this country when there are others who wait and do it legally? Why should I then, obey any law when someone, not even a citizen breaks them?
Do you have any idea of what would Mexico do? The answer is easy: deport them on the spot. http://www.city-journal.org/html/eon2006-04-10hm.html Not only that but the Mexican government encourages illegals to enter this country because so many send money they make here illegally, back to Mexico http://www.city-journal.org/html/15_4_mexico.html
And if you want to talk money do you know how much illegal immigration cost us? "Congressional Budget Office projects 700-900K Illegal Immigrants entering annually and 70 million in the next 20 years."
"The nearly 26 million legal and illegal immigrants settling in the United States since 1970 cost taxpayers a net $69 billion in 1997 alone, in excess of taxes those immigrants paid. This represents a cost of $260 in additional taxes paid by each U.S. resident or $1,030 in additional taxes paid by each family of four. This cost is a substantial increase over the net immigration costs of $65 billion ins 1996, $51 billion ins 1994, $44 billion in 1993, and $43 billion in 1992." http://www.carryingcapacity.org/huddlenr.html
Not to mention crimes committed by illegals;

i'm guessing much like our ancestors when they came to this country...uninvited until we took it by force and bloodshed but oh I know that was different wasn't it because after all it benefited us (not Them).
Too bad your ashamed of your ancestors. I am not. True there were injustices and the treatment of Indians was shameful however the government and Americans have tried to address those ever since with legislation and aid. Google aid to Native Americans and see what you get.
Do you have any idea of the history of Mexico? Do you know that the Spanish invaded and conquered the Indians and were very brutal in their treat meant of the natives Indians? Oh and lets not forget that Native Mexican Indian ceremonies included cutting out the hearts of live victims for sacrifice. http://www.houstonculture.org/mexico/aztecs.html
Or the fact that native Mexican and Native American Indians would raid each other territories, conquering and enslaving their Native "brothers". Tribal warfare marked Native American life. "The torture of prisoners was the most distinctive feature of warfare in eastern North America."
This is a patently ludicrous statement. Draw boundaries? What country doesn't have boundaries? Without boundaries there is chaos. Are we not allowed to have an American culture? Or is that just the right of other countries , like France?
And as far as hoard resources, we are the most generous country in the world! Do you have any idea of the amount of money and charitable programs that our government and individual Americans give to others in the world?
"America is the most generous country in the world in terms of how much it spends on foreign aid, not to mention the billions of dollars donated by individual Americans through private non-profit aid. Most of the poverty in the third world is created by corrupt governments that are oftentimes aided by corrupt UN bureaucrats. Much of the money we donate goes never gets to people we are supposed to be helping because of this corruption." http://interestalert.com/story/02220000aaa06a21.nb/siteia/FRONTPAG/front_page.html
Btw how much money or time have you given?
Your whole e-mail is one of a typical leftist blaming America for all the world's problems. No facts to back up your claims, just the liberal leftist party line. If this country is so awful and we are responsible for "hell on earth" why don't you go to some country that you can admire?
It may be the most charitable act you have ever done.
P.S. Oh and btw you may want to Google to see if knowing about and not reporting illegals is a crime
PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN
