I never said this. If that's how you interpreted my posts then you interpreted them wrong. All I ever said is that it's a misnomer for people for the US to call themselves Americans, implying that "they" are Americans and no one else is, when in reality anyone born in the Americas is an American.
Look into historical records. This whole hemisphere is called America, both north and south. Originally everyone from the Americas was called Americans, specially by those in Europe.
When this country was formed it was referred to as "The United States." Somewhere along history, America got tacked on and it's now called The United States of America.
America is this western hemisphere. The United States is a country in America. Mexico could very well call itself Mexico of the America, and Columbia could call itself Columbia of America, got that.
But they don't call themselves that, people in this country do, got that?

You are correct about this. It did take some critical thinking to come up with what you say but it is true. We took the use of American most likely because it was one word and it sounded better then we are United States. But regardless we are Americans of these United States. As they are Americans of their Countries.

The reason I applaud the Brown Berets is because they are giving Gringos a piece of their own medicine.
You have some whites you swear that the US is for no one else but themselves, and the Brown Berets are telling them that the whites don't belong here. So, that's what I applaud, not desecrating the flag.
The Field of Dreams scenario, "If you build it, they will come". The US isn't Mexico-by-proxy. The Brown Berets are a disgrace to the Latino community, irrelevant peasants trying to worm their way into history.

I'm full of anguish towards Americans more than anything..democrat and republican.. American was founded on immigration... The NATIVE AMERICANS had their land stolen from them.. their women and children raped and beaten.. then given a little bit of land to live on after all of this is done.. along with enough supplies to live well enough to be creative and build a little shack..

If ANY American wants to say something about immigration laws.. let it first be heard from the mouth of a Cherokee Indian..or ANY native American tribe!

I think anyone that DOES come to America and has been here for a certain amount of time..rather married or NOT.. who has nothing move than traffic violations or a misdemeanor charge.. should be given a social security card and be an American citizen.. or at the least LET'S OPEN THE DAMN BORDERS! I'm serious.. A lot of Immigrants have families here.. IN AMERICA and are fearful of making ANY mistake because they're afraid they'll be ripped away from their wife and children and never be allowed back..

Is it so bad that Americans are so lazy they've lost not only sight of the American dream but the ability to get off their lazy asses and do anything to be a benefit to this country, and people who believe in the American dream come here to live it?

If taxes are the problem.. Why not give them a social security card? A temporary one at first and then after passing the test to become a citizen.. a permanent S.S. Card?

It's a falsehood that Americans are lazy. And social security cards aren't a reward for lawbreakers.

Oh? But We educate child molesters in prison? Please.. what I speak is the truth.. I have seen it with my own eyes.. White men think they're OWED something.. that their nationality is the best.. and should be protected.. yet they're too damn stupid to realize the land they call their THEY STOLE... from the Indians.. we NEVER called land a POSSESSION.. we lived on it and took care of it! Freedom? That's what the Indian tribes had before being enslaved.. to a government they never asked for! For what? POWER? CONTROL? GOVERNMENT? They very thing the white men were breaking away from they come here and set up the same kind of government that has now became the same enslavement to 'Americans' that is was for Britain? Foolish people never learn from History..

For the record.. I'm not racist.. I'm 8th blooded Cherokee Indian and God only knows what else.. but I live where my ancestors where forced to walk a path they died on..'Trail of Tears'.. I know what I know of history... and the fact is.... most people aren't of 'pure blood'.. and the Cherokee Indians were the first tribe.. from which the Mayans and Aztec also derived from.. along with others here in North America.. when it comes down to it.. We aren't against a race.. I'm not against a race per'se.. I'm against the Government imposing it's power hungry hand down the mouths of people who refuse to eat what they have to serve.. I want the borders open..
Just having a human heart.. and being touched by the same infirmities having a family alone.. hearing stories of fearfulness of the government and of possible death looking for freedom.. These people deserve a chance at what America calls freedom..
I have a feeling we're on the brink of civil war ourselves.. but I HOPE the whole human race that is here in America realizes that we aren't fighting a race.. we're fighting a controlling government.
