"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, birthplace or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact 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, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile. 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."

Theodore Roosevelt, 1907

Maybe next time the terrorists threaten to execute a westerner we issue a counter-threat to draw cartoons of Mohammed. Heck, maybe we've finally found something they value.

Sure doesn't appear to be human life.

"Did you know that illegal immigrants are "counted" as constituents when allocating our House of Representatives? And as such, did you realize that illegal immigrants are actually part of our Electoral College system? Here are the facts: Congressional Districts are based on population, which is determined by the US Census taken every ten years. There are 435 congressional districts in the United States House of Representatives, with each one representing approximately 711,000 people. The Electoral College consists of 538 electors, corresponding to the 435 representatives and 100 senators, plus the three electors for the District of Columbia, as provided by the Twenty-third Amendment. The US Census counts every person, regardless of immigration status. With those facts in mind, it becomes quite obvious that illegal immigrants are being represented in our Congress (and therefore our Electoral College). Based on a reported number of illegal immigrants being somewhere between eleven and twenty million, the illegal population has more representation in Washington DC and the Electoral College than legal citizens in many States or even groups of States. I've written my Senators and Representative, encouraging them to filter the information contained in the US Census, so as to not include illegals in determining the members of our House or Representatives. I've even written a couple news agencies, hoping to shed some light on this. I encourage each of you to write your Senators and Representatives, as well as anyone else who might help expose the truth. Thanks. ."

"Digger" (Copy and paste this to your congressional representatives. They know about it... They need to know you know about them ignoring it!)

I find it interesting that you mention the "process of government" and then suggest that the Constitution does not represent today's principles. It seems you have failed to recognize that there is a "process of government" contained within our Constitution that allows for such changes to be made to the Constitution. It is called the amendment process (Article V of the Constitution) and it has been completed 27 times since the Constitution was initially signed.

These 27 changes reflected an evolution in society's beliefs and were LEGALLY accomplished by using that very same "Process of Government", which is made possible by the very same document......our Constitution. It is important to note, however, the Constitution is not a "living" document, nor was it intended to be. Thankfully, our Founding Fathers recognized that principles are what constitute our society.........not the whims of individual politicians or the quest for unbridled authority from the Federal Government.

Articulated by "Digger", 2012

Thomas Jefferson's most famous quotes follow. You're sure to be astonished at how far we've fallen."

"When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe."

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not."

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -- Thomas Jefferson

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical. "

Finally... Thomas Jefferson said in 1802: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
