There is a huge difference.
It would appear that that as of late there has been more colonization here than immigrating. When my grandparents and great grandparents came here, they all forbid speaking German any more than was absolutely necessary. None of their children learned more than how to swear in their parents native language. They never expected any help, carried their own weight, and always were thankful for the opportunity that providence had bestowed on them.
It appears that many European countries have allowed themselves to be colonized by Muslim immigrants that are not there to meld into their societies but would rather set up their own. They have been allowed set up their own police and courts as if they are their own independent countries. Quite ironic given European history.
Our form of government makes us particularly vulnerable to this type of take over. It just has to start in one city and move on from there.
At what point will our elected officials publicly admit that they have, and are allowing us to become colonized. At what percentage will we be taken over and will we stand by and watch it happen?
