Why is it that the United States of America seems to be the only country singled out for its origins while the beginnings of many other countries around the world were much more violent?

When was the last time you met an Ostrogoth or a Visogoth? By the mid sixth century, they were conquered first by the Huns and then by Rome, with devastating results for modern day Italy. Yet Italy managed to survive its barbaric origins and has prospered.

Celtish and Germanic peoples managed to survive Roman invasion and were, while not better off for it at the time, did end up with roads, viaducts, architecture, etc.

Man's inhumanity to man has been well documented throughout history and the origins of this country show yet another facet of that age old dilemma. Is it because the origins of this country are so recent, that people feel the need to continue to harp upon its beginnings?

The United States of America is a country. North America is a continent. South America is a continent. It is not all wrapped up into one big land mass. Do you deny the sovereignty of the South American countries as well?

The beginnings of this country weren't pretty. But they were what they were and whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, this country is sovereign and this country's people, i.e.; her citizens, have the right to determine her future--not people who are in this country in violation of her sovereign law.
Historical inhumanity and rapaciousness is pretty much a 'given' for the entire human race...you'll find that just about everywhere than man has 'visited'. "Societal guilt" remains pretty rare....you'll find that ONLY in a few places.

Mexicans will leave when white people return the land they stole from Native Americans

My wife's a Native American. She wants her land back from the Mexicans who stole IT. Her people never wanted to be bricklayers....they were FORCED to build missions.

BTW, she says I can stay as her guest, when you guys leave.

It's funny that you were the first one to tell it like it really is. Just like you said, the rich ruling elites created the jobs magnet, bought off the fed gov, think US Chamber of Commerce lobbyists, into letting a flood of illegal aliens into the country to undercut the wages of low skilled American workers to increase their wealth. The fed gov is still being bought off, keep thinking US Chamber of Commerce among others, the border is still wide open, the jobs magnet is unabated, illegal aliens are still flooding in and the rich ruling elites are still getting wealthier.

And the later groups of 'Native' Americans will leave when they return the land they stole from earlier groups.

Needless to say: get over it.

The difference today is the USA is still strong enough to defang Mexico----------if our cowardly PC 'leaders' were not traitors.

To hear what MEChA et all imply: the Apache, Cherokee, Navajo, Mohawk, etc. are White Gringos hence them being fair game for removal.
