"These are our terms of your surrender."

This morning, I read an article at World Net Daily, and the title is the first thing that came to mind as I read the following:
Protest organizer Luis Magaña in Stockton, Calif., condemned the president's guest-worker proposal, contending a similar program run from 1942 to 1964 was abusive, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

"If a program doesn't give us the full rights accorded other workers in the United States, then we're against it," he told the paper. "They haven't spelled out the details and there's no discussion with the people who will be affected."
And then this statement by Mexico's Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez:
"If there is a real wave of rights abuses, if we see the National Guard starting to directly participate in detaining people ... we would immediately start filing lawsuits through our consulates," Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said in an interview with a Mexico City radio station, according to the Associated Press.
For those that do not wish to face the ugly truth in the matter, I will spell it out, we are at war, and have openly been since the 1960's. It is an assault upon many fronts and the basic goal is the destruction of the United States, not just as we know it- but completely.

It is waged by many foreigners, our neighbors, and by our fellow citizens. It is more than an assault by those who could not have created the nation, I firmly think, it is a war by those who fully wish to see the freedoms and rights we enjoy destroyed, but more importantly, by those who despise the founding thoughts and attitude that this nation brought to the World.

Now, some would say the following, by me, is not well thought out and simply a base response, and I am certain it is shared by many others, however, it is my opinion and I do not care whether others share it or not, I have simply two words for those holding such desires and the men mentioned herein.

President Teddy Roosevelt on Being an American - 1907

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
I have not had time, nor do I now, to write fully my thoughts on the past month of so-called sudden uprisings of "undocumented immigrants" demanding something for nothing, again that is, but found this link this morning and decided to post the link here.
