Greta Van Susteren inspires with “Why don’t we try something new?”
Whilst reading last evening I make it a point to happen across other influential person’s writings and I must admit that Greta van Susteren’s article on her site, posted onto Face Book did precisely what the doctor ordered.
Greta writes, “The nation is – or at least it seems so to me – terribly divided. Everyone has picked a group – whether it be by gender or ethnic background, etc. – and placed a stake in the ground. When this happens, people divide, not unite. This is taking sides, not joining together and you know what happens when people just take sides.”
Continuing she says, “Why don’t we go back to the old concept of America being a melting pot and all of us being Americans with first emphasis being on common goals.
I wrote at pretty good length an (hopefully) inspiring response that having sat on it for about 18 hours I would like to share with you and again, hopefully, get some response.
I do not think Greta is in error whatsoever with her feelings. The fact has it that the American mind-set has changed and primarily so with visitors, students, as well as illegal immigrants just making plans to sojourn to America for a spell.
For the last 150 years or so, to be an immigrant with citizenship aspirations one needed to aspire to assimilate in every American way possible. Let’s say that 100 or more years ago, acquiring written and spoken English skills was not a problem. At all —
One specific issue is that people come to America now – not for the sake of the Nation – yet rather for the life styles and standards of living for their children and relatives that supersede their own. You see, it is not for the Nation that they come, rather, it is for what they can take from the country.
And I will point a finger of blame here, or what is mentioned as attribution. Years ago our wretched Congress as well as other branches within the federal government thought it overly wise to liberalize America. By this what I mean is the unadulterated inclusion of every sojourner’s wants and needs. Although fact has it that these people did not earn their keep.
As long as special interest groups AND American rights and privileges could be bestowed upon these people, what on earth was different? Therefore the mentality of these individuals grabbed those special interest groups. Then it is logical that sojourner’s would also lobby or protest congressional officials and in most cases – those who had the least power – special interests within unions, universities, colleges, and school districts in order to make them feel as though they did.
I find that there is a critical piece of this situation missing. Several actually… Pride in yourself as well as country; achieving the American Way or The Great American Dream, takes giving it all away…meaning give one’s self away for the great Nation that one is making.
This my friends is where America is suffering. Some or most say it is coming from the White House. Others say it is from a bunch of idealistic congress people. One must remember that when everyone assimilates, then there is NOT groups or otherwise divide.
