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!

This is an Editorial written by an American citizen, published in a Tampa
Newspaper. He did quite a job; didn't he?


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 (add Ebonics!!). 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 done complaining, whining,
and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of
life, highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American

Please pass this along if you agree.
