all thanks to a little thing called ‘manifest destiny.’
the irony of our country’s concern about controlling our borders is always a little astonishing to me…we’ve got pretty great historical amnesia.
why not focus on incentivizing citizenship, as opposed to trying to physically block people from getting in to our country? who are the real immigrants? why are our social security cards made out of something only slightly more resilient than single-ply toilet paper; when every grocery store’s membership cards are industrial grade plastic(creddit)? we’re all humans. I think most people understand racism is neither a social norm, nor an acceptable basis for policy. where should we draw lines? it’s only geography and government. live here? pay our taxes and be a citizen that embraces our culture(and, language would be nice)…but, that should be about it.
*rant over!* :]
