American Values or World Values

Reader comment on item: Subsidizing the Enemy
in response to reader comment: Teachings of Faith or Hate

Submitted by Thomas Earl Cannady (United States), May 1, 2006 at 06:11

I must once again thank the Pipes organization for letting Americans again take the lead in making our planet a safer place. His thought provoking talks and articles makes me a man in and of the South feel good about my online activism. As a middle aged African American who has sufferred under the yoke of oppression and hate (a bit used but sadly trued) I must commend all the peoples of America who try to do the right thing.

Now what can we do about our borders and those 20,000,000 odd illegals in our country who do not understand our ways and our need to feel safe at night. I live in a beautiful diverse city call Winston-Salem, NC where I grew up and returned to in 2004 to understand the plight of my family. I am not sure they understand what the country is going through and the tought choices we are about to make. Civil rights for gays are openning up as civil rights for people of color are being ignored. I must say that we are challenged to promote the greater good but is it not strange that republicans are for the rights of all non-minorities but cannot see that being in power means going beyond who and what you are, be it Mormon or United Methodist. Our courts are a mess the military is looking for an identity (and a few good men, hee hee) the churches are struggling to understand the seperation of church and state (something the IRS does better than churches) and all good people need to help law enforcement understand that the right to use force to control or enforce is not a mandate to keep neighborhoods "white and right". So what do we do? Well we do not let free speech by non Americans turn into European and South American type of criminal unrest (civil some might say) and we do not let people into our country to run business designed to destroy everything we love and adhere to. Our elections are going to turn into a mandate for change and restructure (hence Commander in Chief - not Clinton) but will that change be a whites only zone of care and comfort or wil we use the greatest resources in the world to reach out and stop crime, hate, discrimination and terrorism. I pray we will.
