If I had my druthers, I'd rather see my grandchildren return to their ancestral forests in Central Europe and leave the Chinese to colonize and rule America, God knows the "Americans" don't deserve this place anymore. And after watching today's Olympic opening day ceremony, I'm sure that the Chinese would be more than capable.

The speed with which this place is being constantly redefined makes it impossible to claim that there's an "American" anything anymore. So, no, I don't believe in the "American" spirit, such a thing does not exist and perhaps has never existed.
That would not fly either-----------us Americans would be the 'reconquistas' attempting to take over Ireland, Germany, etc. by the present day inhabitants. We would likely get our asses kicked or possibly killed-------not that I would blame our 'ancestral' nations.

Basically either we make a stand or surrender..........and, apparently, us anti illegal immigrant Americans are starting to win. Witness well over a milion illegals 'self deporting' because things are too uncomfortable here these days

Again; as I have stated in the recent past: many of the pro NAU types fail to see it as a modern day version of Manifest Destiny---------in which we will own both Canada and Mexico.

Your statement speaks volumes, I feel that a good share of Americans feel the same way, sad as it is.

Nothing could be further from the truth regardless of your stance on things.

THere is a ground swell of duty to country first which is occurring across this great nation.

We are tired, us the workers that have built this place , seeing it pawned to the highest bidder, and the welfare nanny state sucking us dry to support the un and under educated, lazy non workers.
