I Am An American http://bit.ly/THIwoF Has America has lost its roots? What once was a nation that wanted to be separate and different from other countries has become a nation that wants to be the same as other countries by bringing their own countries over here. Instead of people saying, “I am anAmerican!”, we are saying, “I am an Israeli-American or an Asian-Americanor a Mexican-American or a Russian-American” and so on. Have you ever heard of Americans giving up their nationality, moving to another country like Russia and gaining citizenship there and then saying, “I am an American-Russian”? They’d get laughed out of town, if not out of the country itself. Within the past 20 years, we have seen this socialist warfare rhetoric and even stronger so from Obama, the anthropology expert, of dissecting America into a group of separate cultures who brought their own racial identity, ethnic backgrounds, class status and country’s laws over to the U.S. to inflict on everyone, rather than as a group of unified people, such as our founding fathers, who gave up their own country’s racial identity, social values and country’s laws by coming over to the U.S., creating their own national identity and saying to the other countries, “SCREW YOU ALL!! I AM AN AMERICAN, FIRST AND FOREMOST!” or as Henry Shivley likes to put it, “I AM AN AMERICANNATIONAL!”. We should see ourselves not as a citizen subjected to the state or government, but as a free individual with our own identity, not subjected to any form of government, but to our own selves and our own lives! We are the individual ones who will make our own future and be leaders in our own right, without the expressed permission, certification or authorization of the government itself. We are the ones who have sought and hungered for knowledge, experimentation, proper reasoning, logic, morality and ethics in our own right; so that we could find some way of defining who we are as unique individuals and to be able to proudly share our experiences with others. To learn how to become innovative, creative and come up with solutions that will make our lives better and to become something more by growing as individuals and not to be a servant to the government or higher authority who want us to only learn what we need to do the job, like robots at a factory who don’t know why they are doing something, but just know that they are trained or told to do something. And to more importantly, be able to proudly use what we have learned and share what we know in a distinct and unified, free country and to shout out to the world and say, “I AM AN AMERICAN!!!” In an effort to re-educate America, Charlotte Thomsen Iserbyt published this excerpt written by John Omicinski in her book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America to show how we as Americans have perceived ourselves and how a change must be made if we are to become a strong unified America once again: “John Omicinski, Gannett News Service, wrote “Multiculturalism is a Worthy Goal, but America Still Needs Americans” which appeared in the Sunday, November 20, 1994 issue of Detroit News. Omicinski’s article covered a speech by Librarian of Congress James Billington at the 75 th anniversary of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. A few interesting excerpts from the article follow: Will America lead the world into the 21 st century? Not the way things are going, says Librarian of Congress James Billington. [Not] in a country afflicted with a lazy, ill-defined multiculturalism filling up with African Americans, Korean Americans, Japanese Americans, he suggests. And his bottom line is simple: America doesn’t work without Americans. As a custodian of the library and its 105 million items, Billington is caretaker of the world’s largest depository of human culture. He also is one of Washington’s sharpest minds, an expert on Russian history as well as America’s heritage, and even rarer breed – a straight talker. The arsenal of information we…
