We are American, let’s stay that Way
This article submitted today is one I have been waiting to write with baited breath. I would be remiss if I tried to declare that at one time or another many of you have seen most sequences in other posts from me. However, I can say without trepidation, that the nation as a whole is suffering because our mainstream media intentionally chooses not to write and/or cover these inherent facts.
Therefore, all one needs to do is look at something like President George Washington’s speech in November 1794: “The policy or advantage of immigration taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for, by so doing, they retain the Language, habits and principles (good or bad) which they bring with them. Whereas by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures and laws: in a word, soon become one people.”
Cultural assimilation is a socio-political response to demographic multi-ethnicity that supports or promotes the assimilation of ethnic minorities into the dominant culture. The term assimilation is often used with regard to immigrants and various ethnic groups who have settled in a new land. New customs and attitudes are acquired through contact and communication. Assimilation usually involves a gradual change and takes place in varying degrees; full assimilation occurs when new members of a society become indistinguishable from older members.
We would like to start with none other than Thomas Jefferson insofar as not only did he have a lot to say on the matter, but is also the person who changed his mind considerably during the election of 1800 that many feared he’d lost to Aaron Burr. However, far more a travesty happened when Hamilton openly rebuked Jefferson’s position in two separate articles in New York newspapers.
Thomas Jefferson’s attitude on immigration. Jefferson felt that a people being accustomed to leadership that used cruel and arbitrary use of power, who remained unaccountable for their actions – or in the case of most immigrants during that period – unaccountable for their lack of leadership, tyranny, even repression of the people’s basic human rights, would therefore know not too much else and inevitably would bring that with them insofar as it is the only thing they know.
Three years earlier, at the Constitutional Convention, Madison said, he “…wished to invite foreigners of merit and republican principles among us. America was indebted to emigration for her settlement and prosperity.”
Therefore, I remain confused as to why policies within the INS law (or Title 8) are so disregarded and to the Democrats used only during that time of voting. I truly believe that when it comes to the voting process used in this country there is nothing that Democrats won’t do to gain a vote.
Just a small refresher that we all should attend to; Critical thinking has been described as “reasonable reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do.” It has been described in more detail as “the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.
More recently, critical thinking has been described as “the process of purposeful, self-regulatory judgment, which uses reasoned consideration to evidence, context, conceptualizations, methods, and criteria.” Critical thinking is commonly understood to involve a commitment to the social and political practice of participatory democracy, willingness to imagine or remain open to considering an alternative.
Therefore without impunity do you think that during the period of time 1794 until 1800 that the central government of the United States would have granted so many passes and/or waivers to the load of rubbish Hillary Clinton has brought with her during her leadership whether earned or not? In fact, before Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to anything — she had the Commodities Futures Trading Commission and the Justice department investigating her for commodities’ futures buying and selling as well as the Justice Department investigating her for her lesser than honorable land ownership when she worked with Whitewater as an attorney?
