“This is a nation

— not a polyglot boarding house.

There is not room in the country for any

50-50 American,

nor can there be but one loyalty

— to the Stars and Stripes.”

 

–Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

The Washington Post (May 28, 1918).

 

“Use Only English, Roosevelt Urges.” p. 2.

  

Which is just what we’ve made it:

 

 A Polyglot Boarding House

 

A MERE BOARDING HOUSE!

 

Foreigners get the best jobs

 

 

Contrary to popular belief,

most of the money sent out of the country

does not go to Mexico

but to India.

While $25 Billion is exported annually to

Mexico

 

That is, in “legally” earned money–

–not the drug tade!

$25.2 Billion is exported annually to India!

Every American citizen needs to read this!

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907:

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 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 person’s becoming in every facet 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 … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” (emphasis and spacing added)
