REQUIEM

Below are the two final essays to be posted on Allegiance and Duty Betrayed. The first one is written by a friend -- screen name 'Euro-American Scum' -- who, over the past four years, has been the most faithful essayist here. He has written about everything from his pilgrimage to Normandy in 2004 to take part in the 60th–year commemoration of the invasion, to his memories of his tour in Vietnam. His dedication to America’s founding principles ... and those who have sacrificed to preserve them over the past 200+ years ... is unequaled. Thank you, E-A-S. It has been a privilege to include your writing here, and it is a privilege to call you my friend.

The second essay is my own farewell. And with it I thank all of the many regular visitors, and those who may have only dropped in occasionally, for coming here. I hope you learned something. I hope a seed or two was planted. But, even if not, I thank you for stopping by ... 25 March, 2010

Our Government -- Hypocritical?


(If you look real closely, you can see the “fence” ….. )

Something occurred to me the other day while watching a program on the history channel. It seems that many of the American Indian people like the Navaho were not given the right to vote here in America until the early and mid part of the last century. It seems that even the females here in America waited a long time to get the vote. Right now if you are an illegal living here in America, however, you can get a driver’s license and the vote without even being a citizen, not to mention the other benefits that they receive.

Now this seems to me to be very hypocritical of our government. How is it that citizens of our great land were denied the vote and we can just allow those who arrive in our great land to illegally vote in our elections? You and I never voted to give them this vote and we never allowed our government to vote to give them the vote. So how did this happen?

One thing we all know is our two party system here in America is about an even split. This makes it very difficult when a third party comes along and enters a race for office. Many times our elected offices are filled with a person who never got the majority of the vote, or they lose the race by a very small margin. If one party can get the majority of the illegals to vote their way, then they can once more win elections and keep the power of being in a majority in all offices. I have a strong belief that this is what is behind this effort.

The problem is that, to get the illegals to vote for them, they must give those privileges you and I must pay for. This gives them housing, jobs, drivers licenses, medical benefits, and other social programs. The party that appears to give them these privileges will then get their vote, which will break the even split.

To get the illegals to come and stay, the laws are ignored by those who have the power to enforce them. The criminals are not captured and sent back by our government and there is no effort to stop them from entering our country.

This has angered the majority of Americans and rightly so. We see our tax dollars being spent on criminals and our medical and school system being over run by criminals who have no legal right to be here. The worst of all this abuse is they are given rights under our Constitution. Many Americans who have immigrated to this nation and become citizens through the legal system we have in place for doing this feel cheated and abused. Who can blame them?

Our upcoming election will be critical to this issue and I think many people who will win office will do so by promising to do something about this abuse of all Americans by these criminals.

The one thing I find most egregious about all of this is many of these illegals are also breaking many of our other laws. They have formed gangs, import drugs and cause all kinds of crimes in our society from murder to simple assaults. Our over-crowded correction systems are further crowded. Again, our tax dollars are paying to keep them in our systems.

It’s time to stop this stupid violation of our laws and hospitality. The way to stop it is by enforcing our laws, deporting illegals and closing our borders. If anyone running for office is unwilling to take this on and bring it to a stop, then that person doesn’t deserve your vote.

God bless America and God bless our troops still in harm's way.

Hypocritical? That's an understatement. How about corrupt, criminal, unconstitutional, tyrannical, treasonous? Now that's better.

Good article though.

There's really nothing more to say.

I like the way you think and wish our government would take lessons from you.

A sheriff must have a unique perspective on this kind of lawbreaking. Thank you for sharing yours with us.
