These are three words I wish for you to get to know and get to know them really well, as you will see fairly soon what they mean to you as an American citizen. You see a while back we had a civil rights movement by some people who were brought here against their will and made to work for almost nothing except maybe not to get beaten; it is a page in American history none of us should be proud of. However, we now have some leaders saying that those marches in our streets are civil rights movements; there is a big difference in what they are calling it and what it really is. Not one single black person in America ever snuck into our country as a matter of fact they never wanted to come here they were forced and when they got here they didn’t get any right that belong to them now on the contrary they were forced to work day and night and had no right to any redress, they could and often were killed for nothing more than trying to get away and go back home.

What our leaders are now calling the new civil rights movement is nothing more than an illegal invasion from Mexico, every single one of them came here of their own volition and did so with one goal in mind and that was to take something. That may sound a little harsh but it is fact, if they did not come to take a job they came to take welfare and food stamps and anything else they could get for free. They call us the immigrants and tell us this country belongs to them. Our leaders tell us that they are just doing the jobs Americans are to lazy to do, that it was the immigrants that built America like this was nothing but flat land with nothing on it till the Mexicans showed up. That is a slap in the face to all those great Americans that went before us, the ones who built the industries and plowed the farms. It is a slap in the face of every former slave who we all know for a fact watered the cotton with the sweat of their brow.

We lose a piece of America every single time we must push 1 to hear English, have to pay one more dollar to have a ballot printed in Spanish as well as English. We lose a piece of America when shows like America’s funniest videos must have Spanish subtitles. Little by little America is turning into Mexico and our leaders on either side of the isles are not only allowing it to happen they are encouraging this mess… If there is a problem getting them legally then by all means fix it but don’t call it something it is not and shove it down our throats. At this point a third party that took immigration seriously could win in 2008 because it is not just the conservatives who are angry this covers all parties, all colors and the man who will stand up and show us a workable plan will be the one who is the next president.
