Got this in an e-mail and thought it was worth sharing...
I got this in an email and according to TruthorFiction.com
The letter was written by Roosevelt, but after his presidency and shortly before he died in 1919. It says alot about the current situation in this country...
The year is 1907, one hundred years ago
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.'
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
Every American citizen needs to read this!
I think that not only should every American citizen read this but every person THINKING about becoming an American citizen should read this as well.
Have a nice day!
