Multiculturalism did not create this country, it certainly wasn't mentioned by any of the founding fathers.

Um... the founding fathers were British... and immigrants from Poland, Sweden, France e.t.c came to this country and they too gave their share of multi-culturalism.

I embrace diversity. My wife is a thai national. I have no problem with legal immigrants. None what so ever. My issue is with those who dont feel they should have to obey our immigration laws. My issue is with those who feel we need to change to accomidate them. Wrong answer. when you choose to immigrate you have choosen to adapt to your new country. If you cant then go home.

Honestly speaking, this is what is expected if you immigrate to a country, if people from that country immigrated to yours, it'd be what they'd do as well.

Long live the good ol' USA

Much love and light!!!!

America was 80% white, and of that 80% white, 80% was british.

The only minorities were protestant germans.


Look at the nationalities of the founding fathers for yourself.

Yes the founding fathers sent the Indians packing. Look at where the Indians are now, on Indian Reservations in the middle of nowhere looking for gambling revenue to solve their problems. High substance abuse, High divorce rate, High suicide rate. I see they handled the situation nicely.

Multiculturalism will only work if it's not forced, love can't be forced

In order for multiculturalism to work, there must be a blending, a melding of societies, not, as it has been in the U.S., a determination to keep one's culture and society separate and apart from that of the American people at any cost.
