After hearing that the state of Florida changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her drivers license with her face covered, I believe this is even more appropriate. Read on, please!

IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Americans. However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America.
Our population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants. However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of America being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!
"In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan. We
adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.
If Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our lifestyle.
Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But, once you are through complaining, whining, and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom, THE RIGHT TO LEAVE.
Here is a response I had to this page on 7/16/02. The man that responded gave me permission to print it here:
From Thomas Mackey:
Unless you're a white supremicist, you might consider the comments below as a response to this "learn english or leave" idea.
Sometimes a brain serves a person better than his heart's gut reaction. This kind of stuff would be laughable if it were not so full of errors. When I refer to "you" - I'm directing this at whoever the original author is. I have one minor issue with this kind of thing. If you look back in history, a fellow named Adolf sounded a little too similar for this to land in my comfort zone. The "majority" of Germans agreed with him in the 1930s& 40s, too. All that means is that a majority of people were insane for a period of time on a certain issue. Exactly what harm and pain did someone experience when a Muslim woman was photographed for her driver's license with her face covered, by the way?
Multiculturalism "dilutes our sovereignty" - please explain that one. Quite a few immigrants died fighting in wars for this country. And "dilutes our national identity"??? Multiculturalism IS our national identity. You may want to visit the statue of Liberty and read what it says, if you are, in fact, literate. If it wasn't for a guy from Germany who developed the theory of relativity when his "hobby" was physics, we never would have developed the A-bomb and might be speaking Japanese right now. I suppose we should have told Mr. Einstein the "we don't care how you did things in your country"instead of putting his brialliance to use.
And how is it that people like me, whose grandparents immigrated from Europe, are superior to first generation immigrants? "OUR country"? Speak English? There is NO national language in this country. The original settlers - European settlers, that is - in Maryland spoke German, to provide just one example. "In God We Trust" - too bad if you're non-religious or have a different belief system? "If God offends you - leave"?? HELLO??? The reason most settlers came here from Europe was for FREEDOM OF RELIGION, because the various Kings in charge made only one religion legal. If the understanding of God was so universal, there wouldn't be so many different religions. AL-QUEDA CLAIMS TO BELIEVE IN GOD TOO!! Forgive me if I'd rather be in a room with an atheist, and support his clear constitutional right to not have "God" shoved down his throat by a government entity. By the way, the separation of church and state is in the CONSTITUTION. This was not some afterthought (like "under God" in the pledge was, thank you, paraniod anti-communist withch-hunt senators in the early 50s - which is exactly the kind of thing that can happen with these types of sentiments). By the way - don't let me catch you eating an eggroll, slice of pizza, or a taco. "We don't care how they did it back home".
People who choose to not speak or learn English suffer because of it. But I'd rather have access to tacos and have to listen to people speak Spanish than to have neither. And believe it or not, we have and can learn worthwhile things from immigrants - even if they are atheists or don't speak fluent English. And that's the "Freedom" that the struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women were protecting. It also protects your right to have and distribute the opinions you did. I obviously feel that too many people agree with you - or can be roused by such propaganda into witch-hunt/mob mentality - and that it can be dangerous and antithetical to this country's values.
"I may disagree with you, but I'll fight to the death your right to say it". Even if it's not in English.
This was my response to his email:
Thanks for your email. It is nice to have the freedom to say what you believe isn't it. That's what we should all be concerned about.
There is nothing wrong with anyone in the US celebrating customs or traditions of their native country, as the statement in question says. You are right that it was the combination of all cultures coming together starting 500 years ago that influenced what we became when the United States was formed and afterward. And if you respect the decisions of those immigrants, you will acknowledge the truth that this country was founded as a Christian nation (next time you pull out a coin, read what it says). That evolved to what are now our culture and traditions.
My great grandparents also immigrated from Europe (Germany) in the late 1800's. They could not speak any English, but saw to it that all their children (8 boys all born in the US) learned only English. I don't think my grandfather and his brothers could speak little if any German, except to communicate with my great grandparents. Most of the early immigrant communities made sure their children learned English as their primary language. They knew that to have a better opportunity, they would have to know the language of this country. It is for the betterment of anyone coming to this country, or any other country, that they learn the dominant language and be aware of (not necessarily accept) the traditions so they can function better and have a fair chance to succeed. By keeping their native language dominant in their family, new immigrants are only helping to keep their children from succeeding in life and having a fair and equal chance. This keeps more people in a state of needing government help, which is what the Democrats want. The more people in poverty and in need of help, the more votes the Democrats, who promise more and more government support, will get. The Democrats succeed politically only by denying you an opportunity and a chance to succeed on your own.
No, it's NOT too bad if you want to be an atheist or anything else you want to beleive or not believe in, as long as this remains a Christian nation. The Christian faith is based on the word of God in the Bible, not on the acts of men or women who may be claiming to be a Christian. That's one of the things about Christianity, you can't be forced to accept it. Someone acting as a true Christian cannot and will not try to force their beliefs on anyone. It is because we are a Christ based nation, that there is freedom for all beliefs and religions to exist here. However it is too bad if you are in a Muslim country and want to leave that faith or not believe in it! The true Islamic Qur'an (not the softened Western version) simply dictates to kill any non-believers. Those Muslims that flew the planes into the twin towers on September 11, 2001 were acting as true faithful followers of the Qur'an and it's teachings. As with the Muslim woman wearing a veil in her drivers license, because of this exception (common sense) how will she be identified by her picture? Not to mention it shows support for a belief that sees women as little more than animals. We are asked to respect Hinduism, Islamic and other cults, but for some reason any attack against Christianity is fair play.
I wonder why most that don't accept Christianity are so afraid of it. That's something all non-believers in Christ should ponder. Why is this all inclusive tolerance not extend to the Christian faith? It can only be because it is the only real threat to the pagan world. I know that the attacks on God will only increase, as told in Bible prophecy. Just as what used to be wrong has become right, and the state of our pocketbook dictates how we vote, we will usher in our own demise unless we follow II CHRONICLES 7:14 in the Bible - If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
I am a sinful person. I have to fight off sinful thoughts in my mind every day and ask God's forgiveness. That is why I thank God for putting his Son on this earth to pay the price for my sins. God did this because we cannot do it on our own. It is a gift of His grace that we cannot earn.
I ask your permission to post your letter in it's entirety at my site. I won't do it without your permission. I will be posting my response there.
Here is a response I had to this page on 7/24/02.
From Matt Brummer:
Our government can not favor one religion. I have been raised in a Christian home
and been taught Christian values my entire life. I don't at this time call my self a
Christian but I still try and govern my
actions through Christian morals. I also believe our country is great because we have based much of our law on Christian values. Despite all of this, I also find my self a staunch defender of the Constitution and pure Democracy. I can not ardently support protection of privacy, free speech and the free press, but then choose to ignore the non-endorsement of religion. Here is the first amendment for reference:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."
So it is with much grief that I must say that "In God We Trust", prayer in schools, etc. is not constitutional. I have no moral problem what so ever with these things. I think are a great influence in an increasingly godless society. But, what if "Praise Allah" were put on the quarter? Or a menorah? Or some quote by a French philopher proving the non-existance of god? That would be REALLY whack.
I can't allow my self to pick and choose what parts of the constitution I like and discard the rest. I must take the document as a whole.
This was my response to his email:
This nation was not founded based on those other faiths or beliefs. If it had been the situation would be radically different today, if we were even still here. You can bet that there would not be any first amendment, Constitution, or anything else we have today. The problems this country is facing coincide with the degree we have thrown God out of our lives. This country is destroying our children by not allowing them to be exposed to God and biblical teachings. The evidence of this is drowning us but we still choose to ignore it. They are definately being exposed to everything else with almost no restriction.
The world wants to be part of, and at the same time is jealous of and hates the United States because what we have become. Other countries are in the sorry state they are in because of what they base their beliefs on. People want God thrown out because they think they will then be able to act on their sinful desires without conscience. They want no right and wrong; whatever is right for you is OK; no guidance in their lives but their own worldly desires.
"In God We Trust" is simply a statement of historic fact; that this nation was founded as a Christian nation and it's laws (at one time) were all based on Biblical truth. It does not dictate you have to believe in God. It does endorse it, not as an established church, but as the firm foundation we need to succeed and prosper. We clearly cannot allow the full freedom to excercise beliefs to faiths that have destructive teachings, such as the Muslim faith or devil worship. The Muslim faith is the epitome of total intolerance. The Qur'an teaches to kill anyone that is not a believer in Allah. Devil worship includes human sacrafice. Do you think we should allow the full free excercise of these faiths?
Thanks for your response,
Note: One thing I forgot to include in my response is that we are not a pure democracy. We are a republic.

Phil In some respects I agree with your article (if I may call it that), however, this subject(s) gets diluted because in the end it becomes a "my religion is better than yours" argument. I don't believe for one minute this is what you intended for this article, I just realized after reading some of the responses. It came down to one religion over another. I will flatly state that I am what most would call an atheist. I believe that "GOD" was created by man to cope with his inability to deal with the fact that all things (including human life) cease to exist.The issue of immigration, their culture, our culture, their religion, our religion is not the real debate here (correct me if I am wrong). We have freedom of speech, so say what you want. We have freedom of religion, so follow whatever religion you want. We have a process for immigrants to become legal American citizens, so become an American citizen. The country was founded by Christian individuals, FACT! The diversity of people in this country is part of our Heritage or national identity, FACT! immigrants fought in our wars, and lead the way to major discoveries, FACT!But for Gods (or whoever's) sake! DO NOT come to America and expect us to change our laws to fit those aspects of your culture that are not our own. We speak English, don't try to legislate Spanish as a national second language. DO NOT expect us to change our DVM laws to fit one particular religion. DO NOT expect us to change our National Anthem because it doesn't not fit what you THINK it should say or that it hurts your feelings or that your children might get the wrong ideas. Face it if you come to this country you take it "as is", Americans don't go overseas and start trying to legislate changes to their particular laws. I agree, this Country is losing its Identity. Not because of one Immigrants gripe over another's, but because they attempt to cram (legislate) those beliefs down our throats all under the guise of one Constitutional right or another. Immigrants come here seeking a better life, better education, better health care, and in some cases to escape their own cultures lack of one freedom or another. There are too many people listening to, and changing the American way of life because of the MINORITY rather than the MAJORITY. This is not the Middle East, This is not Mexico, This is not Japan, This is not Iraq, This is not Cuba, This is not Canada. This is America, Please leave your baggage at the border on your way in and thank you for visiting. Should you come here expecting to change the very foundation that our country was founded on, by all means go ahead, but don't expect us to change because 5 Muslims are butt hurt over their children hearing "In God We Trust" at school everyday.P.S. Feel free to post this on your web site if you wish.
This was my response to his email:
The main issue of the article has been altered somewhat but any reply someone wants to make is fine. It is not only about the language but also learning to live among a culture you may not understand or even agree with, but are willing to accept as the chosen culture of the citizens of that country. If you choose to live here, you will have to live among it. If you can't stand to live among the culture of any country, then why are you going there to live? Immigrants to this country 100 years ago and earlier came here to escape the problems of their countries and to have better opportunities. They would have their own communities they could communicate in better, but they had no desire to change traditions of beliefs in the US. For the most part, they wanted their children to learn English as their primary language.
I do want to reply to your email with another point. If we were to legislate Spanish as a second language, we would have to legslate every other language spoken in this country as an official language to be "fair". How can we say; sorry, we will officially deal in Spanish, but you other nationalities will just have to learn both English and Spanish now to survive in this country. Part of my family came from Germany. Had they immigrated here more recently and I spoke only German, I may be fighting to make German an official second language. Because we are so diverse, it would be heaping an additional burden on all nationalities in this country to make an exception for one language. In the case of Canada having both English and French, I have heard from some Canadians that this does cause problems. I don't really know how they deal with it. It would be nice to hear from someone in Canada.
Speaking as everyone is about immigrants making up the population of this country, isn't that true of all countries in the beginning! The United States is thought of as the diverse country now because it has a shorter history. England, France, Mexico, China and every other country on this planet have the same diverse beginnings, although hundreds or even thousands of years earlier. You won't see any other country making any moves to change any of their customs or traditions. Faith is basic in the formation of heritage and traditions. The Christian faith is basic in the formation of this country. You can believe in any other faith you choose to or be an atheist if you want, but they can't change history or truth (although many are trying their best to).
Thanks for your reply,
Here is a response received about Canada on 8/03/02.
Phil: In response to your web page regarding Living In America. I am Canadian.
Born and bred and very proud. French Canadian (yes there is a slight difference from
Parisian French) people live in my province of Ontario. French is taught at our schools as
a second language. Our Prime Minster is French. ALL packaging is bilingual. French and
English. It has been like that for 25+ years. Just because French is a second language in
my country, doesn't mean I speak it. Just because it is taught in our schools doesn't mean
I use it in my day to day life. I probably bump into a French Canadian once every year if
that. Travel to the province of Quebec and you will be lost without knowing French. French
Imersion in our elementary schools is now a more popular thing being taught to our
children. Some say it's just a status symbol that parents choose to put their kids in.
French Imersion is an option and is not mandatory. In my large circle of friends, I only
know of one person who's wife
(who is French Canadian) used French in her workplace daily. Her job was to place orders nationwide for her company and her skill of the official second language came in very handy. Just a few other things I would like to point out. I deal with Americans on a daily basis through my sales on Ebay. Over the past four years I have noticed quite a bit of U.S. customers assuming we are all alike. Just because I am Canadian, doesn't mean I say "Eh" in every sentence. Just because I'm Canadian doesn't mean I watch, play and breathe hockey - I loathe the sport and all that it represents. Just because I am Canadian doesn't mean I wear a toque and drink beer and call my fellow Canadians "hosers". Just because I am Canadian doesn't mean I know Fred Smith from B.C. (some Americans honestly think our country is that small) I once called a pal in MA and his mom answered the phone. She told me he wasn't home so I left a message with my phone number. After I told her my area code she said "You Have Area Codes In Canada?" I was polite and told her yes but I felt like being smart and tell her that Canada has only one phone and it is in Calgary. When it rings the entire country runs to answer it. Hence The Calgary Stampede. A movie poster dealer I know offers an annual price guide. Inside he lists all of the American dealers, then all of the overseas dealers. First country to be listed overseas? Canada. I emailed him to say "John.....you've been to Canada, why are you listing it as overseas? How do you travel to Canada......from the tip of Key West and around to the Maritimes?"
My favorite question to stump an American citizen........."Who is the Prime Minister Of Canada". When George Bush was running for Governor he was asked by a Canadian reporter who the Prime Minister of Canada was. George W. couldn't answer it. Canada is a beautiful country. We're not far. Come visit sometime.
Here is a response I had to this page on 10/03/02.
I am writing this from Australia. Australia country is pushing ahead with
"multiculturalism" too. It is causing astonishing problems. No country can
accommodate every single point of view, religion and language. It's like a ship where
every passenger on board has the right to decide the course the ship takes - it'll
founder. - That's a fact rather than a theory. I agree with everything you say. The US was
based on Christian morality, principles and moral guidance. The language IS English.
Having Spanish (or whatever) is purely a political stunt to earn votes from Spanish
speaking immigrants. How will America be when there are 50 different "official"
languages? - If it makes sense to have everyone in the US drive on the same side of the
road - to prevent accidents - how can it not be sensible to have everyone speak the same
language and abide by the same customs and laws? Uniformity may be perceived as oppressive
to some people (at times) but in the final analysis it makes for smooth running of a
country - and that benefits everyone. Enough political correctness! PC is going to destroy
the very democracy that it professes to preserve.
(By all means feel free to put my e-mail on your site)
Here is a response I had to this page on 12/19/02.
I found your site to be very informative. I also appreciate your coments on our national heritage.
In regards to your coments, I am impressed that you understand that we are a republic, not a democreacy. Strictly speaking, we are a representative republic. The founding fathers never intended the pulic itself to create public policy. That is why we find ourselves with the electoral college for electing the President. They inteded for the public to have a say in their own public affairs but, not the final say.
The thing that I find fascinating is that those who appeal to the founding fathers intentions seem to have never read the Federalist Papers or anything else they wrote. If they did, they would find that the father's idea of what is required for a properly functioning government is the antithesis of what liberals today claim the fathers intended. Jefferson, Washington, et al. stated that without God and public acknowledgement of Him, our country would fail. It is a huge leap from a state religion to sterilizing the public domain of any reference to Him. Basically the First Amendment prohibits the FEDERAL government from forcing people to become members of a government sanctioned church. This did not apply to the individual states. Massachussetts had a state church until 1838.
I am amazed by the number people (scholars even) who claim or imply that Jefferson wrote that there is to be a "wall of seperation between church and state" in the Constitution. This phrase simply did not appear as official policy until a supreme court ruling in the 20th century (in 1962?). Jefferson wrote the phrase in a letter to a pastor in Danbury Connecticut. Even then, people today take the phrase much farther than it was ever intended. What Jefferson and others of his time clearly state is that the government has no business interfering in the affairs of a church. Nowhere do they say that a church should not influence the government. In fact they state that it is a citizens duty to influence the government according to their individual beliefs.
It is hypocrisy for people to complain about the influence of Christianity on public life, then to turn around and cram their religion of secular humanism down everyone else's throat. Yes, secular humanism is a religion.
Here is a response I had to this page on 2/7/03.
Dear Phil! I recently read your articles about God and America, and immigrants
from other countries. I have also read through the numerous responses from others, and
your responces to them. I am here to say Phil, that you are not alone. There are many men
and women in this country, including myself, that share your views and beliefs. This
"is" and deeply needs to continue to be, a Nation under God, not any God, but
the one and only God, who gave his one and only son Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for
the sins of man, so that any man who knows this to be true, and accepts Jesus Christ as
his personal savior, will forsake himself, pick up the cross, and follow his teachings
written in the Bible, throughout his life here on earth, till the day that his life ends
in this world and he is alive for eternity in Heaven with God The Father, Jesus Christ his
Son, and the Holy Spirit. What I have just said may sound scarey or confusing to a
non-believer, but it is simply "the truth", and is known to only those that
truely know and have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. As President Lincoln said,
this country will not be destroyed by an outside force, but if it ever comes under
decline, it will be from inside it's walls. If we look back in time, we can look at the
Roman Empire, and it's decline. It crumbled from inside through moral and spiritual
decadence. This country was built on Christian beliefs, and it's principals put into
action. We as a nation need to ,now more than ever, get back to God's plan of living, and
the Ten Commandments, printed there still today, in God's word, 'The Bible". Not
someones interpretation of the bible, or any of the many different religious books on
"religion". Thank you for your words Phil. Your words echo truth and honesty ,
and reflect light that can only come from one who has a living relationship with Jesus
Christ. I pray that the readers of your responces will think about what they read here,
and will open their hearts and soul to God's truth, and pick up a Bible, and just
simply start reading. Till we talk again...........
God Bless. Sincerely: Ed.
Here is a response I had to this page on 8/25/03.
I am highly impressed with your website, which shows professionalism and integrity.........
I am originally, 28 years ago, from Germany, and could not agree more with you on the subject of immigration, and immigrant behaviour. I spend the first year after my arrival working in construction at day, and learning English at night. I had a friend of mine taping many of the daytime game shows that dealt with language, like the $25000 Pyramid, and then honed my language skills at night. I am proud to say, that I can still give my inlaws and children a challenging game, when it comes to scrabble. When it comes to Christianity and God, it does not seize to amaze me, how many people do not realize, that the core of our values are all Christian ones. No country and no people on earth are as charitable. And that is, what makes 9/11 such a tragedy, namely that the inherent goodness and hospitality of this people was abused by a bunch of thugs and their brainwashed executioners. To end with two now common American language terms of two American icons, "It ain't over till it's over" and "You can run but you can't hide". I firmly believe that history will look at this period as the beginning of the time, when the oppressed and fanatically indoctrinated people of the world were lend a helping hand to see, discover and prosper and become part of a world that is free of tyranny.
Here is information I just received (August 16, 2004) about a book that is
avaliable, "Sword of the Prophet" by Serge Trifkovic:
Since the attacks of September 11, dozens of books have been rushed to market purporting to "explain" the religion in whose name the terrorists acted. Most of them strike a common theme: "true" Islam -- as opposed to the "fundamentalist" variety of the hijackers -- is a "religion of peace" that promotes charity, tolerance, freedom, and culture no less than "true" Christianity.
Such an viewpoint, argues Serge Trifkovic, foreign affairs editor of Chronicles magazine, is not only false but dangerous, since it blinds to the true nature of the enemy that threatens us. Moreover, it betrays a hidden agenda: to discredit Christianity and the West by comparison to an sanitized, idealized Islam that bears no resemblance to its actual teachings or history.
To correct this, Trifkovic gives us the unvarnished, "politically incorrect" truth about Islam -- including the shocking facts about its founder, Mohammed; its rise through bloody conquest; its sanctioning of theft, deceit, lust and murder; its persecutions of Christians, Jews, Hindus and other "infidels"; its cruel mistreatment of women; the colossal myth of its cultural "golden age"; its irreformable commitment to global conquest by any means necessary; the broad sweep of the military, political, moral, and spiritual struggle that faces us; and what we must do if we wish to survive.
Sword of the Prophet reveals the details and documentation for hundreds of "politically incorrect" facts about Islam -- such as:
The Koran sanctions pillage, looting, ransom, and the rape of captive women as an incentive to join in jihad or "holy war"
The Koran allows a man to have up to four wives -- at any one time. He can divorce a wife by simply saying so 3 times
Mohammad had as many as 25 wives. One was six when they married; he was 54. He consummated the marriage when she was 9
At least 27 people were murdered on Mohammed's orders
Mohammed allowed temporary marriage "for three nights" or more, so that soldiers in the field could "marry" prostitutes
The Koran assures the Muslim the right to own slaves by purchasing them or as a bounty of war. Mohammad had dozens
In Islam, the definition of what is "right" or "just" is not fixed, but changeable by divine decree -- enabling the most heinous sins and crimes to be declared "the will of Allah"
The joys and glories of the Islamic "paradise" are tangible and sensual and include sex with virgins -- and young boys
The Crusades were a belated military response to three centuries of Muslim aggression against Christian lands and peoples
Islam divides the world into the House of Islam (where Islam rules) and the House of War (where it doesn't). The two are permanently at war; there may be temporary truces, but peace will come only upon the completion of global conquest
When Muslims are a minority community, the Koran permits them to adopt a peaceful attitude to deceive their neighbors, until they feel strong enough to dispense with the pretense
The massacres perpetrated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger in sheer numbers than the Holocaust
Islam's "golden age" was parasitic on the Christian cultures and peoples it conquered, and ended when it "killed the host"
In 1993, Saudi Arabia's supreme religious authority declared that the world is flat, and that anyone who disagrees is an infidel to be punished

Here is a response I had to this page on 11/5/04, right after the re-election of President Bush.
Hi how are you? I have called you over the phone, and this is a first for me in e-mailing down your way.
Phil, first off I must tell you how delighted I am with your website. It is brave, and it speaks to the truth. The truth that is the absolute truth from our Heavenly Father. He has given you a wonderful gift, and I know that you do not harbor any conceit, in praising his good name.
Liberalism is a lie, a lie that is fueled by hatred, cowardice, the power of evil that is rooted in Satan. Unfortunately, it has destroyed parts of our civilization and the fabric of our lives that keep us whole.
It has permeated our places of worship, our homes and our public schools.
As a public school teacher, living in the suburbs, and traveling to NYC to teach children with disabilities, I see the destruction which is wreaked by Liberalism. Since last Tuesday's Election, a majority of staff are walking around with long faces. They are devastated by the results. To them it's
as if someone died. There's a cloud over their heads, and some are in denial, that it even happened.
Well, I won't forget. I saw the flames flicker out of the tops of Tower One & Two, that morning of 9/11. We all watched from the window of the Gym that is on the 3rd Floor. It was shocking and sickening.
For weeks, after 9/11,traffic was diverted by Police barricades, for fallen Firefighters & Police Officers, (circumvented traffic at a wake service or Funeral, or all over Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties) let alone everyday men and women that would never return home.
During the campaign, the opposition candidate and the media, crucified Pres. Bush. When more soldiers died at that time, the blood was on the hands of the traitors here in America. Their sacrificed blood, prayers and with the grace of God, has brought our good President the redeemed fortune to serve us for another four years.
Added 2-19-07 - The truth about Jefferson's copy of the Quran:
Democrat Keith Ellison is now officially the first Muslim United States
congressman. True to his pledge, he placed his hand on the Quran, the Muslim book of jihad
and pledged his allegiance to the United States during his ceremonial swearing-in.
Capitol Hill staff said Ellison's swearing-in photo opportunity drew more media than they had ever seen in the history of the U.S. House. Ellison represents the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota.
The Quran Ellison used was no ordinary book. It once belonged to Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States and one of America's founding fathers. Ellison borrowed it from the Rare Book Section of the Library of Congress. It was one of the 6,500 Jefferson books archived in the library.
Ellison, who was born in Detroit and converted to Islam while in college, said he chose to use Jefferson's Quran because it showed that "a visionary like Jefferson" believed that wisdom could be gleaned from many sources.
There is no doubt Ellison was right about Jefferson believing wisdom could be "gleaned" from the Muslim Quran. At the time Jefferson owned the book, he needed to know everything possible about Muslims because he was about to
advocate war against the Islamic "Barbary" states of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Tripoli.
Ellison's use of Jefferson's Quran as a prop illuminates a subject once well-known in the history of the United States, but, which today, is mostly forgotten - the Muslim pirate slavers who over many centuries enslaved millions of Africans and tens of thousands of Christian Europeans and Americans in the Islamic "Barbary" states.
Over the course of 10 centuries, Muslim pirates cruised the African and Mediterranean coastline, pillaging villages and seizing slaves.
The taking of slaves in pre-dawn raids on unsuspecting coastal villages had a high casualty rate. It was typical of Muslim raiders to kill off as many of the "non-Muslim" older men and women as possible so the preferred "booty" of only young women and children could be collected.
Young non-Muslim women were targeted because of their value as concubines in Islamic markets. Islamic law provides for the sexual interests of Muslim men by allowing them to take as many as four wives at one time and to have as many concubines as their fortunes allow.
Boys, as young as 9 or 10 years old, were often mutilated to create eunuchs who would bring higher prices in the slave markets of the Middle East. Muslim slave traders created "eunuch stations" along major African slave
routes so the necessary surgery could be performed. It was estimated that only a small number of the boys subjected to the mutilation survived after the surgery.
When American colonists rebelled against British rule in 1776, American merchant ships lost Royal Navy protection. With no American Navy for protection, American ships were attacked and their Christian crews enslaved by Muslim pirates operating under the control of the "Dey of Algiers"--an Islamist warlord ruling Algeria.
Because American commerce in the Mediterranean was being destroyed by the pirates, the Continental Congress agreed in 1784 to negotiate treaties with the four Barbary States. Congress appointed a special commission consisting of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin, to oversee the negotiations.
Lacking the ability to protect its merchant ships in the Mediterranean, the new America government tried to appease the Muslim slavers by agreeing to pay tribute and ransoms in order to retrieve seized American ships and buy the freedom of enslaved sailors.
Adams argued in favor of paying tribute as the cheapest way to get American commerce in the Mediterranean moving again. Jefferson was opposed. He believed there would be no end to the demands for tribute and wanted matters settled "through the medium of war." He proposed a league of trading nations to force an end to Muslim piracy.
In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the "Dey of Algiers" ambassador to Britain.
The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress' vote to appease.
During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey's ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.
In a later meeting with the American Congress, the two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam "was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise."
For the following 15 years, the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to 20 percent of United States government annual revenues in 1800.
Not long after Jefferson's inauguration as president in 1801, he dispatched a group of frigates to defend American interests in the Mediterranean, and informed Congress.
Declaring that America was going to spend "millions for defense but not one cent for tribute," Jefferson pressed the issue by deploying American Marines and many of America's best warships to the Muslim Barbary Coast.
The USS Constitution, USS Constellation, USS Philadelphia, USS Chesapeake, USS Argus, USS Syren and USS Intrepid all saw action.
In 1805, American Marines marched across the dessert from Egypt into Tripolitania, forcing the surrender of Tripoli and the freeing of all American slaves.
During the Jefferson administration, the Muslim Barbary States, crumbling as a result of intense American naval bombardment and on shore raids by Marines, finally officially agreed to abandon slavery and piracy.
Jefferson's victory over the Muslims lives on today in the Marine Hymn, with the line, "From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, we will fight our country's battles on the land as on the sea."
It wasn't until 1815 that the problem was fully settled by the total defeat of all the Muslim slave trading pirates.
Jefferson had been right. The "medium of war" was the only way to put and end to the Muslim problem.
Mr. Ellison was right about Jefferson. He was a "visionary" wise enough to read and learn about the enemy from their own Muslim book of jihad.
Added 8 - 02 -07 - Respect for heritage and culture."Immigrants are welcome, but they need to tolerate our heritage and culture. If our heritage and culture offends them or anyone else, no one is forcing them to stay. This Says It All"
This was my response to this email:You are the only one that has commented negatively in 5 years.
I meant to add that since the natives at that time did not have a culture that was conducive to a civilized society, it is probably best it didn't continue. They would have killed each other off much faster than some claim the settlers have done. Who knows what the Indians may have done to those that were here before them.
Probably to some extent the truth has always been compromised to suite the moods of the times, but never more so than it is today to the point of being unbelievable and silly. But that won't stop the lies and distortions. As long as something is said often and long enough, and you can get enough ignorant people to believe it, that is all that matters.
Thanks for you comments. I will post them.
I received and added this on January 21, 2008. I
agree completely. See what you think:
From a teacher friend :
This is America...WAKE UP!!!!!
This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back required) plus other federal grants to go to school? One student from the Dominican
Republic told me that she didn't want me to find a job for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money left over.
She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program for immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going to be a US citizen because she plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday and that she 'loves HER country.' I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the US is giving her and then not even bothering to become a citizen and she told me that it doesn't bother her, because
that is what the money is there for!
I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you ARE a US citizen, you don't qualify for their program. And all the while, I am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and everyone in my family works and pays for our education.
Something is wrong here. Right? This is but one more example of our illustrious "tax and spend" Congress that thinks they know better how to spend our money than we do. No wonder our national debt is so high! It has never been more important to know who you are voting for and what their positions are on many issues. If the wrong people get voted into office, we all will pay a steep price in the long run.
I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the
National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation -- not even close.
Sorry if this offends anyone but this is MY COUNTRY - IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- please pass this along. I am not against legal immigration -- just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
PART OF THE PROBLEM
Think about this: If you don't want to do this for fear of offending someone --YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It is time for America to speak up!

Regarding your web site header (WE MUST RETURN TO BEING ONE NATION UNDER GOD) :
America was based on the principle of religious freedom. If you want to live in a country with mandatory religion, you should go
live in a country that believes in that - for instance, Iraq. By the way, atheists have far better morals that fanatical christians...because atheists do the right thing simply because it's the right thing to do. Christians do the right thing only if they're afraid to go to hell if they don't. They are hypocrites.
This was my response to her email:
As an atheist, what are your morals based on? Without anything in your life except your own knowledge and self-interest to guide you, you are free to make up what you determine to be good morals.
Our founders realized that without Christian principals and God's law, the Ten Commandments, as a basis for a society, there can't be religious freedom. Atheistic countries, such as the Soviet Union was, demonstrated that. Other countries that have a belief in false gods made up by men to suit their own needs, such as the middle east, demonstrates that by the way average people have to live and exist in those countries. It is also shown in how they deal with anyone that does not believe as they do. If laws are based only on the whim of what an individual in power may want, that can develop the dictators we see that have destroyed so many societies. It is because the founders recognized the need for a sound foundation that there is religious freedom. This country was based on Gods law and that is why we have prospered so well and have been able to keep the dictators in check and the world overall in peace. The wars we have had are nothing compared to what would have been had the US not been a Christian nation.
If you are a person that needs solid evidence; there is more solid evidence for the life, death and resurrection of Christ; and for Biblical truth; than there is for almost all other events we accept as truth in history http://emporium.turnpike.net/C/cs/. If you want to, you can find it.
Christ can be accepted by an individual only in his heart. He can't be forced onto
them. God gave us the freedom to choose and no one should take that away.
Only through Christ do we have true freedom. You can choose to accept or reject His gift of total salvation.
Note: We are coming close to being a country of mandatory religion; and it will
not be Christianity.
The deception and lies in this 2008 Presidential race are being accepted blindly by the people of this nation. If the people do not wake up and see the true face of those individuals running in the Democrat Party, they will be participants in the fall of our country. Please pray for our country and for all candidates running for President. They all need our prayers.

I came across your website today while trying to find the source of an old email I once received. It takes courage to do what you are doing and I commend you for it. Please keep up the good work. I've placed your site on my favorites list and will return to it from time to time. It is past time for us, as a nation, to return to our true roots and again stand up for what our forefathers fought and died for. I don't believe our true history is being taught in schools anymore. Margaret O'Hare was the stepping stone to ending prayer in school because it was offensive to some. Heaven help us. I still try to quote II Chronicles 7:14. Unfortunately, I stumble over the exact wording but I've finally remembered chapter and verse.
Back to the old email. I still have not located it but will continue looking. It was about a past president's speech at either Ellis Island or the Statue of Liberty. He was telling folks that we welcome them but they must understand we are a Christian nation, they must respect our flag, and English is our only language. I've been looking for it because I believe people need to be reminded.
Here is the quote. It is from President Theodore Roosevelt in 1919:
"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 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, from a letter he wrote to the president of the American Defense Society on January 3, 1919, three days before Roosevelt died. "Americanization" was a favorite theme of Roosevelt's during his later years, when he railed repeatedly against "hyphenated Americans" and the prospect of a nation "brought to ruins" by a "tangle of squabbling nationalities." He advocated the compulsory learning of English by every naturalized citizen. "Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or to leave the country," he said in a statement to the Kansas City Star in 1918. "English should be the only language taught or used in the public schools." He also insisted, on more than one occasion, that America has no room for what he called "fifty-fifty allegiance." In a speech made in 1917 he said, "It is our boast that we admit the immigrant to full fellowship and equality with the native-born. In return we demand that he shall share our undivided allegiance to the one flag which floats over all of us." http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_Roosevelt_on_immigrants.htm
Thank you for your offer to post it on your website. It is sad that our government offers educational, business, home and other grants to immigrants and they are not required to pay any of the money back. None of these grants are offered to American citizens. We have lost our way and somehow must find our way back. There was a time we helped each other and were happy to do it. Progress is wonderful until you loose your prospective.
Keep up the good work on your website. We need more people such as yourself, who are not afraid to speak the truth.

Fact Check This First, then Remember It On Election Day:
The Republican Party of the United States of America was partially founded in a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin. PURPOSE: To counter the Democrats plans to expand slavery in America. EVERY American should REMEMBER this important bit of American history on election day !
( Critical to this rating is the over simplification of the Democrat party's stance. The majority of Democrats did indeed support an expansion of slavery, but not all. Northern Democrats opposed that expansion, some of whom abandoned the party to help create the Republican Party.)
