I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying American , Gun Owning Veteran
I believe in the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others.
I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal
governmental functionary, Democrat or Republican, that wants to share
it with others who don't work!
I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!
I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.
I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and
does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!
I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you
should do it in English.
I believe there should be no other language option for business.
I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and
where they want to.
I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.
I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.
I've never owned a slave, nor was I a slave. I haven't burned any
witches , and neither have you!
I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where
you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA ...We like
it the way it is and more so the way it was ...so stop trying to
change it to look like Russia or China, or some other socialist
If you were born here and don't like it... you are free to move to any
Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really
clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest
I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse
Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part
of the problem and not the solution? Can I get an AMEN on that one
also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking
the law, regardless of what race or color you are.
And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license, nor
the necessity of showing my identification, to conduct normal business
or especially to vote . I think those policies are more than
I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want
you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the
world for the next four years.
I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me
stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their
cause....Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your
I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes a
man and woman ...
I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers, or
progressive Democrats think!
I want to return this country to the values it was founded on, and
prospered under for over 200 years!
My Country...I hope this offends all illegal aliens.
Hypothetically, my great, great, great, great grandfather watched and
bled as his friends died in the Revolution and the War of 1812.
My great, great, great grandfather watched as his friends died in the
Mexican American War.
My great, great grandfather watched as his friends and brothers died
in the Civil War.
My great grandfather watched as his friends died in the Spanish-American War.
My grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I.
My father watched as his friends died in WW II and the Korean War.
I watched as my friends died in Vietnam , Panama and Desert Storm.
My son watched and bled as his friends died in Afghanistan and Iraq ..
None of them died for the Mexican Flag.
Everyone of them died for the American flag, and liberty.
Texas high school students raised a Mexican flag on a school flag
pole, other students took it down. Guess who was expelled...the
students who took it down.
California high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo
because they wore T-shirts with the American flag printed on them.
Enough is enough!
This message needs to be viewed by every American; and every American
needs to stand up for America .
We've bent over to appease the America-haters long enough.
I'm taking a stand.
I'm standing up because of the hundreds of thousands who died fighting
in wars, preserving liberty and freedom both, here and in other
besieged nations, for the American flag, and all she stands for..
If you agree, stand up with me.
And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message.
AMERICANS, stop giving away Your RIGHTS! Let me make this clear! THIS
IS MY COUNTRY!
This statement DOES NOT mean I'm against immigration!
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY, welcome to come legally, as did
1. Get a sponsor
2. Learn the LANGUAGE, as immigrants have in the past!
3. Live by OUR rules!
4. Get a job!
5. Pay YOUR Taxes!
6. No Social Security until you have earned it and Paid for it!
7. NOW find a place to lay your head!
If you don't want to forward this for fear of offending someone, then
YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
We've gone so far the other way . . . bent over backwards not to offend anyone.
Only AMERICANS seems to care when American Citizens are being offended!
WAKE UP America !!!
I MISS MY COUNTRY! God Bless America
