We need to wake up.
Today, there was a bombing in a London subway. Again. The 5th terror attack this year.
Yesterday, North Korea launched a missile capable of destroying our Allies and our fellow countrymen. Again. The 13th missile launch this year.
Our response? We’re fighting each other. Today it’s St. Louis. Last night, it was Berkeley. There’s a civil war in this country with Americans fighting Americans as the war on democracy, on freedom, on all we hold dear nears ever closer to our shores.
We have common ground if we’re willing to look for it. We can agree to open the door wide to anyone that wants to EMBRACE democracy, is willing to WORK for the American dream and is willing to SACRIFICE anything to UPHOLD what America stands for. That’s our fight. Let’s fight for that. Does the pathway to citizenship need to be reformed? Yes. Do we welcome, with open arms, those that want to work for and embody the American Dream? Yes. Absolutely!
But that’s not everyone. And we can no longer afford to be naïve to that fact.
Europe is paying the price for naiveté.
The American Dream is too precious, too sought after, too hard earned by Main Street America AND the tired, “huddled masses yearning to breathe free” to be so disregarded by the naïve thought that thinks anyone who makes it to our shores wants to embrace our Country and its values.
We have to wake up, stop fighting each other and start fighting for all that America stands for.
America is too precious to destroy it from the outside. She is FAR too precious to destroy it from within.
Time is ticking. We have to wake up.
