All bs aside, why are we being forced to learn a new culture? Language? Personally I think it is to create a NAU within another generation. Your thoughts?

Truth? Because so many of us Americans (of all races/ethnicities) are-----read that were 'asleep at the switch'.

Just that those boneheads almost two years ago flew the Mexican flag at their illegal immigrants' 'rights' marches-------and, suffice to say for the illegals and their enablers----------it backfired.

NOTE: the juggernaut has just begun.......although the impending recession has prodded the legislators to swing into action a tad more quickly.

How ELSE do you expect people to "change"---voluntarily? Of COURSE few people in huge numbers are going to take it upon themselves to 'change". They have to be 'force fed'.

CASE IN POINT-- At one time, we "pressured", cajoled, and 'bullied' new immigrants to 'change'---they were strongly PUSHED to change into "Americans", also known as 'assimilation'.

We no longer 'force feed' our new arrivals--no pressure, no requirements, no 'big deal', not even 'papers' are required. The result? They don't CHANGE. They stay "foreigners", because nobody requires them to do anything ELSE.

If you're going to get Americans into some sort of NAU, you're going to have to "force" the idea on them. It's not something we'd ordinarily choose to do on our own.

As for any sort of NAU: the language would be English-----------not Spanish.

Subtracting about 3-5 million Quebecois; most of whom speak English, the ratio of North American English to Spanish speakers is about 3:1-----and, by far the economic greater power is held by the former group. Mexico is very weak when push comes to shove.

The reason that we are being forced to be Mexican-friendly and fluent in Spanish is b/c if we refuse, we will be slammed with the racism tag.

Which of course is backfiring

To me a bunch of illegal immigrants who oftentimes happen to be 'White' screaming racism against Black Americans because the former do not get their way (Hispanics) is pathetic at worst and comical at best.
