    Default Ronald Reagan, on immigration

    This was back when Republicans were still human beings:

    “I received a letter just before I left office from a man. I don’t know why he chose to write it, but I’m glad he did. He wrote that you can go to live in France, but you can’t become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Italy, but you can’t become a German, an Italian. He went through Turkey, Greece, Japan and other countries. But he said anyone, from any corner of the world, can come to live in the United States and become an American.”

    --- Ronald Reagan
    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    Excellent point
    It’s really hard to define ‘virtue signalling’, as I was saying the other day to some of my Muslim friends over a fair-trade coffee in our local feminist bookshop. (Lucy Porter 2018)

    I've found it peculiar that Republicans often invoke Reagan's name to support policies HE did not support.
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    Manny of the Germans that immigrated to the United States in the 19th century had no intention of becoming Americans. They wanted remain Germans with an American mailing address. My family knew some of these. Other immigrants have felt the same way. It only lasts about one generation.

    "But SWEEEDEN, people, SWEEEEDEN!"

    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.
