I was pretty good at history in school. Here goes .....

The pilgrims came here (to America) to escape the government sponsored religion in Europe and England that religious people today are now trying to implement here.

We set up towns in a country that wasn't ours. We then began killing off the real owners when they asked 'who the heck invited you here?'.

Once that was done (the Indian thing). We then set up a government. Which we quickly overthrew. You have to remember there wasn't any TV or internet, so it was easy to get bored and look for something to do.

We expanded across the Mississippi where we began killing off the residents of that side of America.

With everyone we didn't like pretty much shot, blown up, or living on reservations we then imported black people to enslave and subjugate. That's because we found out Indians were sorta peeved-off at us (you know, us shooting them, blowing them up, taking their land, putting them on reservations, little annoying things like that) so they weren't that great at the slavery thing. They had this unnerving habit about waiting until you were asleep and killing you. So we decided to heck with that and started importing black people.

Mexico, who owned Texas at the time, outlawed slavery and we couldn't let that happen so we rebelled and went to war with them. By this time we were pretty good at shooting people, so we won.

Then, with no one else to blow up we went to war with ourselves. Somewhere during all the back and forth shooting and cannon fire slavery became an issue and after everyone ran out of ammo and decided to go home slavery was banned.

At that point with no one men could oppress they looked across the room at the wife sitting there by the fire and thought 'why not, no one else is left'. So women became the new subjugated house slaves.

Did I get it right? I liked history class.

We set up towns in a country with no immigration policy or laws, with an indigenous population that had no concept of ownership of the land. Therefore, we were not illegal immigrants.

With people coming to what now is the USA and taking land because of no ownership like you say do you think you have the right to change the rules and stop people entering and doing the same thing now?

my family came through Ellis Island,
fleeing from the Nazi crap and ready to begin anew here,
thinking it looked like the promised land...

I feel for the peoples that lived and loved here originally, but this story seems to be one that has been played over centuries and in many lands,
not sure what is right and what is wrong...

just want to interject that life and thus, history is not black and white.

Yes, absolutely, we came to power in this country and just like every country before us and every country created since us, those in power make the rules and those who wish to live there follow or face the consequences.

Understood, a little give and take in a debate is expected. At least, on here, we are remaining civil, unlike so many on other threads.
