Less than 30 years ago, most everything in America enjoyed the moniker "All American."  Sports heroes became "All Americans."  When you bought a product, it read, "Made in America."  Everyone spoke English and raised their hands to their hearts while saying, "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God with liberty and justice for all."

Our leaders, with their open-borders approach to life, dismantles the fabric of a successful nation.  Which is it – free market economy, or forced Multiculturalism?

“Many liberals hear talk of national culture and shout 'Nativist!' first and ask questions later, if at all.  They believe it is a sign of their patriotism that they hold fast to the idea that we are a 'nation of immigrants' — forgetting that we are also a nation of immigrants who willingly assimilated and became Americans."

Today, millions in this country call themselves Hmong-Americans, Muslim-Americans, Korean-Americans, African-Americans, Sudanese-Americans, Bangladeshi-Americans.  In other words, they do not hold total allegiance to or loyalty as an American.  One of our presidential candidates calls himself an African-American.  In fact, he is a Kenyan-American.  He grew up in Indonesia until the age of 10.  Barack Obama cannot be considered an All-American man by his own words.

Those people with hyphenated nationalities manifest "multiculturalism." 

By its very name, it destroys one culture by breaking it into many.  It’s like throwing a baseball through a window in a house, fracturing it into many pieces.  The window can no longer protect that house from rain, winds or snow.  Additionally, with numerous cultures come multiple languages.  Linguistic chaos equals unending tension.  The writer, Kant, said, "The two great dividers are religion and language."

Colorado Governor Richard Lamm (D) said, "The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy.  Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon— all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence.  Pakistan and Cyprus have divided.  Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion.  France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."

On the other hand, millions respond and respect their one allegiance as that of being an "American."  Thus, we grow as a country at odds with itself.  We lose our national identity with every added citizen who calls him/herself a hyphenated American.

Europe provides a peek into our future.  Their Muslim-British immigrants stand at odds with everything English.  If you visit London, you will find two separate societies.  The Muslim-French immigrants balk at everything French.  The Muslim-Dutch backlash against everything in Holland.  Ethiopian-Norwegians will not assimilate into Norway's culture.

Would you bake a cake by adding mustard, ketchup and vinegar?  What kind of a cake would result?  Bitter, at odds with itself and discordant!  Not to mention it would taste horrible!

Today, America's grand 232 year run fractures, falters and degrades under the march of "multiculturalism."  The word sounds unifying, inclusive and respectful.  Yet how unified can a nation remain where a foreign language forces its way into our national character?  Los Angeles provides a peek into our future where Mexican culture “overtook” its way into dominance.

Maywood, California, one of many American cities featuring 90 percent illegal aliens, illustrates a case in point.  From an LA Times article,  "">6+4 = 1 Tenuous Existence", for a short time, an illegal alien lived with his family in Maywood, but discovered that crime, drugs, guns, prostitution and dilapidated schools made life miserable.  He moved into the heartland of America – where he discovered safety in the America of law and order. 

"What we weren't able to do in many years in California," Alejandra said, "we've done quickly here.  We're in a state where there's nothing but Americans.  The police control the streets.  It's clean, no gangs!  California now resembles Mexico— everyone thinks like in Mexico.  California's broken."

Given enough time, via adherence to his Mexican culture, Alejandra and millions of immigrants like him, recreate the same conditions created in Maywood, California.  One look at Mexico City's poverty living conditions portends the picture of America's future cities.
