- Theodore Roosevelt 1907, "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. We have room for but one sole loyalty and that
is a loyalty to the American people."
- Do any of our leaders understand that quote? Do
they have any clue as to the importance of its meaning? With over
20 million illegal aliens residing in our country, our Congress and president
don't have a clue!
- However, there is a lawful way to come to America and
on the 29th of April of 2005, former Italian Luca Zanna enjoyed the opportunity
to accomplish the dream of his life: he became an American Citizen!
- "I never can forget the moment I've swore the
oath to my new country along with other 10,000 new reborn American citizens...
this was part of our oath we had to recite in our ceremony:
- "I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and
entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign
prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore
been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution
and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and
domestic... so help me God."
- "I had to hold the tears, tears of joy and pride
to have had the chance in this life to become part of the country
most I love and it represents my spirit: America.
- When I have said "I absolutely and entirely renounce
and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate,
state or sovereignty"... I meant it... so I thought that the American
government meant it too...the first thing came to my mind that finally
I was an American, not an Italian American, not American Italian--"just"
an American. Accordingly to that, I have decided that all my allegiance
to Italy and to the Italian government was part of my past.
- "Nothing personal! I am proud of my roots, but that
is part of my past: since that moment America is my present and my future.
I had decided to be become an American. It took me years of effort.
Why in the heck would I want to still be an Italian? If I wanted to be
considered myself an Italian, I would have stayed in Italy.
- "There is a proverb in Italy that says... you can't
put your foot in two shoes... bottom line... you have to decide where you
are going to stand, you can't be on the side line where it is more convenient.
- "Unfortunately I have soon realized that the beautiful
words of our oath are just rhetorical words and they don't find a practical
application in life and in our laws--not for me, but for the government
and sad but true for many new citizens.
- "In the last few months I have met too many new Americans that
they feel themselves Americans part timekeeping their former citizenship,
their original passport and their allegiance to their former homeland.
Why does the US Government permit that?
- Why do we still let these hybrids and double "marriages"
allowed in America? This is creating more division and less unity--especially
in such critical times for the identity of this country where the
English language is not more a common bond and we are becoming like
many nations in a nation.
- Jimmy Hendrix during his concerts he used to burn his
guitar. Well, I am not Jimmy, but I have decided to burn my Italian passport.
I want to share with you this moment: www.UnitedStates.fm
- Bottom Line: You can't put your foot in two shoes...
find a country that you love and stick with it!
- Our citizenship downgrades with 20 million illegal aliens.
Our president and Congress aid and abet the degradation of U.S. citizenship.
Thousands of American employers break our laws by hiring illegals.
How do their actions serve America? Our own people lose jobs to outsourcing,
insourcing and offshoring through H-1B, H-2B and L-1 visas. What
purpose does the Congress find in destroying millions of American families?
Our language is being trashed by unwanted and unlawful newcomers.
How will Congress and our president communicate to Americans when
they are not citizens? Our schools degrade into Third World
quagmires. How will our Republic sustain an illiterate sub-class?
Our hospitals suffer overwhelming 'anchor baby' costs, taxpayer hemorrhaging
by illegals using our medical facilities at never ending costs to us.
Why do our senators and House representatives support that? What
happens when our kids catch TB from illegal aliens in our schools?
How are we supposed to feel about it? Illegal alien crime accelerates
across this county via illegal aliens? Why won't Congress and this
president take action?
- When will Bush and Congress support legal, lawful, orderly,
sane and reasonable immigration? Aren't the reasons obvious by now?
Teddy Roosevelt got it right! When will Bush stand up for what it means
to be an American?
- Out of this accelerating national nightmare, a fresh
mind and fresh breath zooms into America by a man who chose to immigrate
the legal way-Luca Zanna brings a refreshing and much needed lift to what
it means to become an American.
