Theodore Roosevelt's idea’s on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in EVERY facet an American,
and nothing but an American.
There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.
We have room for but one flag, the American flag.
We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language
and we have room for but one sole loyalty
and that is a loyalty to the American people."
- Theodore Roosevelt 1907
If was good for one of our most honored and revered Presidents in 1907, why should it be different now.
We no longer are allowed to Pray when or where we want. We are no longer allowed to pledge when or where we want. What is next. We are supposed to be a government
"For the people , by the people".
However we the people have given up the right and forsaken the courage to tell those in Government what to do, or even remind them that they are the servant of the people and not the rulers.
