True Patriots Defend Their Homeland

Written by; Gary Wonning

For better or worse, true patriots defend their homeland.

As Americans, we have all immigrated to America from somewhere else, even the American Indians originally came here from somewhere else.

Most of us immigrated to this country for a better life for ourselves and our families, and to escape oppression in our homeland.

In today’s world, things haven’t changed much, thousands still flock to  our homeland for a chance at a better life than is possible anywhere else on earth.

But, the one thing that has changed is the  motive of many who come here. Many people no longer want a better life, they come here to destroy our way of life and exert their will on us. 

In the past, over the millennia, people have immigrated to many lands for the same reason. For better or worse, they have tried to improve their lot in life.

Those times are coming to an end, there is no longer anywhere to go. The world has gotten smaller and as my ancestors were so correct in saying, when you leave your troubles behind, they arrive at where you are going and are waiting for you upon your arrival.

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

You cannot escape whatever you are dealing with by running away. You need to face up to it. The refugees today are only bringing their problems with them and making them our problems. 

They are slowly discovering, once they are here there is nowhere to turn. They look in their own backyard and standing in front of them are the very issues they fled from.

Americans don’t have anywhere to go, and besides, true patriots don’t flee, they stand up and fight for their freedom, liberty, and beliefs. You can’t continuously keep running from the issues, it doesn’t work. 

How much better would it be for the refugees who fled their country to organize, go back and improve their own country? Retake it from those who would do evil.

Wouldn’t that be a better solution?

Many people who immigrate would much rather live in their homeland if it were possible.

How free are you if you are unable to live where you want?

How free are you if you can’t travel where you want?

Freedom is a battle that never ends, Americans fought and died for it, it’s time for the rest of the world to do the same.

  1. Gary – I couldn’t agree with you more. A lot of the immigrants (both legal and illegal) migrate to the U.S. and refuse to assimilate to our culture, principles, and way of life. We have always been a country that has welcomed immigrants, as they have always contributed to our country. The difference is, as you said, they have different motives. Our politics allow this to happen today.

    Our Constitution is built on the consent of the governed. That means that we give up some liberties in return for an expected standard. In our case we expect our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (property) and we expect the Government to protect those rights. In return we agree to abide by laws that secure those rights or have to suffer the penalty. This means that immigrates have to understand and agree to this principle of the consent of the governed. If they desire a different culture or a different set of standards they can not be part of our social compact.

    This holds true for refugees. Although their situation is deplorable and horrendous, we can not accept them as part of our society if we do not have at least some understanding that they want to be part of OUR social compact. This does not mean that we, as a nation, can not help these desperate people. Although there is no easy answer, the answer can not be to try to assimilate another group of people in our culture, who have no desire to be assimilated. If we maintain our current standards, there will be no “shinning city on the hill” for people to aspire to come to.
