Things are starting to come to a head now. Yep, it has been a long time coming.
Recently, we have been treated to incidents involving "naturalized" citizens of the US. The really egregious examples appear to be from middle eastern countries. Some might say these are sleeper cells that have been groomed over many years.
My military mind continuously causes me to look at what regulations there are covering situations, and see what, or where, we went awry.
I am sure there are many who were born and raised in this country, who are not aware of what it takes to become a naturalized citizen. So, I have decided to list the Oath of citizenship, so, we might all have a little background on who these "naturalized citizens" are that are working to destroy our country.
Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America
"I hereby declare, on oath,
that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject of citizen;
that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law;
that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law;
that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
Pretty interesting commentary, no?
My mind keeps telling me, that after taking this oath, a person becomes an American citizen, who has burned all their bridges and sunk all their boats. They have chosen to leave the past behind, and work for a new life. Yeah, right!
So, if this be the case...how come we have people calling themselves "African-Americans", "Polish-Americans", Mexican-Americans", etc.? How come we are so wound up over "Cinco de mayo"?
You see, how we have incrementally moved from being Americans, to being quasi Americans?
So, on the news, I heard the individual who left the car in Times Square loaded with fertilizer is a Pakistani-American, who is naturalized. What a crock of Bovine Scatology. He is either Pakistani or he is American. If he is naturalized in this country he has sworn an oath of allegiance, and has renounced his allegiance to a former sovereignty.
To my military mind, he has clearly shown a disregard for being a subject of the United States of America, and a desire to stand with his renounced sovereignty. He has negated his "naturalized" citizenship, and should either be treated as a hostile terrorist in this country illegally, or he should at least be deported back to his country of origin.
If we were truly serious about this country being the greatest country history has ever known; we would not be calling him, and his ilk, "Pakistani-American", we would strip him of his citizenship and summarily execute him for being a terrorist within our sovereign territory. Historically, the death penalty, carried out, has always been a great deterrent to criminal activity.
According to this current administration, I am a domestic terrorist, I believe in God, I own guns, I am a veteran of our Armed Forces, I believe in individual responsibility, I believe in smaller government. So, this rant is not raising any flags, it is simply verifying that I am who I am.
