Illegal Aliens Must Go!

America was built by Immigrants--LEGAL immigrants. Illegal aliens have no legal or moral basis for being in America. All illegal aliens must be deported and U.S. borders must be secured to prevent more invaders from coming here!

John McCain: You're No Teddy Roosevelt!

By John W. Lillpop

In a recent interview with the New York Times, John McCain was asked to name the individual he would cite as a "model" conservative.

That would be Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, or perhaps even George W. Bush, right?

The answer: None of the above.

In fact, McCain said the following about his own political leanings: "I count myself as a conservative Republican, yet I view it to a large degree in the Theodore Roosevelt mold,” McCain said.


McCain's "model" was of course a great American, much admired for his intelligence, energy, and determination. Roosevelt was also very hawkish on America.

So much so, in fact, that one must wonder if John McCain is even aware of Roosevelt's thoughts with respect to immigration?

In 1907, for example, Roosevelt said the following about immigrants and being American:

"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 person's becoming in every facet 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... 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."

It is a wretched shame that Teddy Roosevelt is not around in 2008 to set John McCain straight on American sovereignty, language, and culture.

Think about it:

How would Teddy react to the fact that 12-38 million uneducated, illiterate peasants from Mexico have illegally crossed US borders and have taken up unlawful residence in America in violation of our immigration laws?

How would he take it upon being learning that the overwhelming majority of illegal aliens in the US do not speak or understand English, and actually refuse to learn America's language?

How would Teddy react upon learning that millions of illegal aliens marched through the streets of America with Mexican flags and Spanish banners in tow as they demanded the same rights and benefits as American citizens?

What would Teddy Roosevelt say to a "conservative" presidential candidate who favored scuttling the rule of law in order to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens?

The really big question: How would Teddy Roosevelt react if ordered to "Press 1 for English"?
