This idea was recently posted on America Speaking Out:
What makes this country great is the diversity of ideas and opinions. In order to maintain our diverse culture, we need to encourage civil rights for minorities, women, and all other oppressed groups. It is all one fight until all people are treated fairly and with respect.
The idea is too general and it seems to come down to the question; How do you determine fairness? Fairness is born out of pure inspiration and motivation—pull up a log and join me at the campfire while we sing Kumbaya—but in real life it is not practical. You can’t run a business with fairness and you can’t run a county with fairness. Imagine fairness in nature—the world would quickly grind to a halt and all life would come to an abrupt end. Illegal immigration is a good example of the poor use of fairness under the guise of civil rights, diversity, and protecting oppressed groups.
Many people entering our country illegally have no thought of blending in or getting along. They bring their culture (which is a beautiful thing, I’ll visit when it’s safe) and crime, but no matter their good intentions, most fail to assimilate into our diverse American culture—often neither learning our language nor participating openly in society, but creating a pocket of division within our culture. And no, it’s not the government’s job to provide schooling to help them assimilate…so, to my liberal friends, take the spoon and sippy cup out of your hands and give it to those who really need it.
Motive is another consideration; illegals are not necessarily running to America’s freedom, but rather escaping from an oppressive government. America has become the easy button , and the liberal—can’t we are get along—groups have made it so and they have done it with American tax dollars. We have become too tolerant and our government and culture should not be watered down, it should be enriched.
I would say to those wishing to welcome anyone and everyone to our county; life is not fair; you can’t make it fair. Fairness is a matter of perspective and what seems fair to one is not fair to another. This idea of fairness has and will cause greater division and less unity.
A country is a business not a, be all, do all, human resource center. Gather hands and sing kumbaya if you must, but that should be left to we the people. Our government needs to get back to the business of protecting the citizens and not socializing.
And to that you would say?
