“Out of many, One,” the words emblazoned on the Great Seal of the United States. Originally referring to the 13 separate states coming together to form one unified country, it has since come to embody the American spirit of equality in birth and unity of values. As Ronald Reagan observed, “You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France, and you'd live and not become a Frenchman…(but) Anybody…can come to America…and become an American."
How does someone become an American? Americanism is a set of ideals, starting with the ones already quoted above from the Declaration of Independence. When someone believes these ideals, then they have a chance, but not a right, to become an actual American. Immigration should be a privilege program, not a welfare program.
Unfortunately, we have allowed vast swaths of people into the United States who do not embrace our values or adopt our culture. Many of these people want to transform America into something it never was and was never intended to be, a giant, centralized, big-government welfare state. The problem with that is "the bigger the government, the smaller the citizen." Big government tramples our constitutional rights, and robs us of personal responsibility. It makes us all less than we ought to be as we're crowded out by Big Brother Government.
To make matters worse, our nation is deeply in debt, and the legions of illegals and illegitimate residents are a tremendous burden on the nation’s finances, resources, and infrastructure. Mitt Romney embraces these people who disrespect our laws and customs and conflates them with people who want to follow the rules, respect our ways, and take on the privilege—and burden—of true Americanism. Sam Parker will work to put Americans first by helping reform immigration. This means NO amnesty, NO more chain migration, and NO more lotteries. America needs self-sustaining people who accept America for what she was and is—ONE—not for who they want to change her into—MANY.
