No Right to Demand Rights

As seen in:
May 8th, 2006 Record Herald

An economic shutdown of America. That's what the protesters wanted. They wanted to take a day off of work to show how much they're needed, but that wasn't enough. They had to march in the streets to successfully shut down the cities. That way those who wanted to work, couldn't.

Nothing like not going to work to show how much you want to work in America.

Let's not forget who these protesters are. These are the same people who, in March, were protesting, waving Mexican flags, flying America's upside down, if at all, and chanting "Viva la Mexico!" These are the same folks who told reporters that this land is Mexico, stolen from them, and they are just taking back what is rightfully theirs. (I'm not even going to mention that many modern Mexicans are descendents of Spaniards, from Spain, on the other side of the world.)

History lesson time:

The United States of America purchased baron, undeveloped land from Mexico (Yep, we bought it, fare and square, no matter what you hear, it was paid for.) When the land that is now California, Arizona, Nevada, exc., Mexico didn't want it. Now illegal aliens say it belongs to them.

Let me ask you this: If we could take L.A., San Francisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas and all other cities with us and leave the land, would they still want to reclaim the area? No, they want the property, not the land. They want American cities, that American's built, made great, and keep great. If Mexico still had the land, they wouldn't want it. It would be just as poverty stricken as the rest of Mexico. They would say that we stole whatever we had, and want it instead.

Why? Because the economy sucks in Mexico, that's why they want to live here, but in Mexico they don't have the freedom that American's do to protest. Problem is, they are not Americans. They break into our country and demand our rights, given to us by our Constitution. They have no right to demand rights.

I don't understand how these illegals can proclaim that they are not criminals. The first thing they did was break the law, but that's all. "I just broke one, now let me live here." What if we all got a pass on our first offence?

What if I go rob a bank then say hey, I'm no criminal! I just broke this one law, but it's okay, because it's not fair for you to have all this money in the vault and not let me have it, even though I did nothing to contribute to it, maintain it, insure it. I sold you the empty vault two hundred years ago, I'm entitled to the money you've put into it! You must have stolen the vault from me! If I still had the vault, it would be filled with my money instead, I'm sure. I'm no criminal, I just broke this one law, but I won't do it again. Just let me keep the money and we'll be fine.

Should you encounter one of these illegal supporters, ask them if they have locks on their doors. Ask them why they lock their doors when they go shopping, or go to work. What's that? Oh, you don't want anyone unknown to you going into your house? Me neither. If you want open boarders, you should leave your doors open. Same thing in my book. Why should illegals have every right to demand our constitutional rights, even though they came in illegally? It's sounds socialist to say that they do, because it's the same as a burglar saying he has the right to be in your home.

If you knock at my door, introduce yourself, and I deem you as a respectable person, I'll let you in, but don't break in the back door when I'm not looking.

Maybe you saw me driving around Washington Court House and Wilmington on May-Day, the "The day without Immigrants". I was in my Jeep, with the top down, American flags strapped to it, and blaring the National Anthem. In English. This is America. This is my house, my home. I'm proud of it, proud to be an American, and I'll defend this great land.

I just through reading the article in the Record-Herald today, and I couldn't agree with you more.
The article was very well written and to the point.

Apparently that there are jobs that American's don't want to do and the Mexican's do them, are glad to get them.

However, what they are doing in protesting what they think that they should have, is down right ridiculous.

I'm glad you enjoyed the article.

I don't think it's so much about jobs Americans don't want, but jobs Americans aren't willing to do for the wages. I know I don't want to pick cabbage, strawberries etc. in the hot sun for hours a day for $6.00 an hour. If the price of these goods goes up by using legal immigrants, I'm willing to pay it.
