    When the time comes that Spanish will be the primary language throughout many States.
    Then I will like to see the responces from those bleeding heart American born liberals on these post.

    Don't you know, they WANT that to happen. They've gone and studied all these other languages and cultures. They WANT America to become just some other place in the world, and not the Greatest Nation of all time. They despise the "horrors" we visited on the Native populations and can't wait to see it happen to Real Americans like you and me by the Mexicans.

    Non-sequitur much?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    No, the problem is not the varied culture, it is the refusal of our many cultures to be open-minded. It's when people start thinking "we need one culture" that we REALLY run into problems.

    Well, the responses will probably all be in Spanish due to training at liberal universities.

    "responces", "on these post"?

    I figure you'd get more out of my Spanish responses than I get out of your <ahem> English ones.

    On that we will disagree. We need an AMERICAN culture. One which embraces the fact that we are from different places, yet brings that all together into one UNIFIED and DISTINCT AMERICAN Culture. That is.... our own language (which we already have.... American English), our own traditions (which we already have), and a shared history (which we already have). It also requires that those who come here from outside abandon their former culture and take up the AMERICAN culture; which is why it is hard for me to believe that many immigrants can ever truly become AMERICANS.... it's very difficult to give up that old culture.

    What are the limits on the common ancestry thing?

    How large of a time period does the ancestry have to cover?
    There have been folks from all over the world living here for hundreds of years? How long until the 6th generation descendants of Asian folks, the 6th generation descendants of African folks and the 6th generation descendants of European folks are all seen as having American ancestry?
    Does it take 7 generations? 3? 100? Or what?

    How large of a geographic area can be considered as a part of "common ancestry"? Do the Irish share a common ancestry w/ the Dutch? Iirc, there was some significant contact between the groups. Do the Spanish share common ancestry with Mauritanians?


    It seems to me that at some point these limits are arbitrary.
    I may be wrong.

    American culture is not about race, religion, or appearance. It's not always pretty (though we should be going about cleaning a lot of that up). However, it is distinctly American.
