Do you contend that the United States of America is the greatest country, has the best
democratic system, the best opportunities for educational advancement & socioeconomic mobility of all the countries in this world?
No. Far from it. We are a baby, founded on violence and intolerance. We are still violent and intolerant. And we treat rich people like gods. Iceland jailed the bankers who ruined them. Viking spirit! On the other hand, the founding spirit of breaking from the hold of religion and authority is majorly inspiring. If only we would really truly DO IT!
We need this:
All people are equal in humanity
No ones god rules our gvt
Mind your business
Care for your fellow citizens, without complaint
Given that most who would immigrant elsewhere choose here and that millions choose to risk their lives to come here each year, I would say yes, proven by those voting with their feet.
It is illogical for many illegal aliens to simultaneously denounce this nation as bad yet break our laws and demand we ignore our laws to let them stay. It is also unreasonable to worship a culture that didn't afford you opportunity and demand everyone accommodate cultural practices that clearly created an inferior society.
You left it, you didn't want to stay in it, you should adapt to the culture you proved was better by traveling this far to come here.
Id like to know why current immigrants have to folliw that edict when tbe europeans who came here didnt. They killed the inhabitants and said "were taking over" . More white privilege???
YD, you are talking about a completely different time period. Think about it, there is a big difference between then and now. Why do people now have to pay for what they did . If your grandfather killed someone at 18, should you go to prison for it?
Should immigrants go to prison for coming to america??
No, not for just coming to America, but they should be sent back to their country.
