    Yep, when people said that about immigrants. The same is not true of illegal aliens.

    Can either of you stop being dishonest for once?
    No, you are not talking about just Redress' comments. You're talking and redress' and your comments. Problem, "Redress and you" were not talking about that. Only you were.

    One person talking about something is not "a conversation" about something.

    Still being dishonest in what others post I see. Nowhere did I say that I was "terrified" about anything. My op was more a comment on open borders and multiculturalism than anything else. Get it straight or don't address me with your lies.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    IOW, it's the US that has a disappointing record of promoting equality under the law, a free press, or human rights, in those countries.
    Right! It's the fault of the United States again. Whoda thought?

    What made the United States so strong, able to influence countries all over Latin America, and all over the world for that matter, while Latin America remained relatively weak? Any ideas?

    Actually much of the success of White people can be traced back to the Protestant work ethic and a relatively free people. Countries with laws and freedoms influenced by Christianity did much better than those who practiced other religions.

    Well, it's true. Doesn't matter that you choose to be willfully ignorant about it.

    From the standpoint of assimilation, I tend to agree with you. But will America learn from its failed practices of the past where it fought so hard not to allow Native Americans the opportunity to assimilate into American culture? Or the Chinese? For nearly 100 years Black? And now Mexicans/Hispanics?

    Of the four, I'd say Blacks had an advantage in that while slaves they came to learn the ways of the White man not from a tactical point of view, i.e., Indians, but social and culturally. Thus, assimilation ultimately was easier. Of course, if Whites would have been more willing to get out of the way and let the laws of nature run its course I think relationships between Blacks and Whites would have greatly improved in their own way over time. But fear and this sense of national ownership got in the way. Those who hold power and influence today are bound to make the same mistakes. You see it festering in the very OP that has caused such an uproar among posters.
    Those who hold power today are of a mixed bag, and largely because of assimilation and the adoption of western policies and traditions. Certainly there were prejudices in America, just as elsewhere, and it is past due to move on from those times.

    America has done very well in assimilating people of various colors and religions from all over the world, and I know of few countries which have done better,

    Both parties are the problem but there seems to be a significant segment of people who actually want larger government, a demand that politicians and bureaucrats are only to happy to meet.

    The Native American culture was too weak and was easily overcome by the Europeans. Perhaps the same thing will happen again, but the stronger and more determined culture generally wins.

    So if the European American's culture turns out to be too weak to withstand the influx of Latino culture, all is perfect with the world.
