The United States is a land of dreams and can be for everyone. And that is no clearer than the fact that people from around the globe risk their lives to get here, even when the United States has an administration and a Congress that has a total disregard for Freedom. Yes, I said it, a total disregard for Freedom and Liberty to be exact. But, I digress. Let me be clear, I love my heritage, but as an American, I can see that we must protect the sovereignty of this great country. We can not, just because of our goodness, be so naïve as to believe we can just have open borders and encourage the illegal crossing into this country and think that no harm will come of it. We can do better people! We are Americans! We can and must fix the border, fix the visa entry system, and figure out a plan for the illegal’s that are already here. We can do this in a humane way to benefit everyone and without Amnesty. We cannot reward a bad behavior, unless you want more of it.(See History and learn from it!)

EL PASO, Texas -- There is typically an American flag that flies high in front of METI Inc., a federal contractor in East El Paso. But instead, the flag is lying flat inside and the flag pole is on the ground outside after a storm last Sunday.
"The wind and the rain knocked over the flag pole, causing the flag pole to lie on the parking lot overlooking Boeing Drive," said Rebecca Orozco with METI Inc.
But it is the condition in which employees found Old Glory that shocked everyone, until they checked their surveillance video.
"After watching the surveillance videos we noticed that it was a good Samaritan who we suspect was a homeless man that came to the rescue of the flag around 1:40 in the morning," Orozco told KFOX.
In the surveillance video you can see the homeless man in driving rain and wind carefully folding up the American flag military style and then placing the flag pole off to the side.
"It was an amazing experience to see that, it was very heartwarming to see that a homeless man or a good Samaritan who was walking around that area at that time of the day in the rain will come to the rescue of the U.S. flag," said Orozco.
Orozco said she wouldn't expect that kind of act in a late night storm from anyone, especially someone who has so little to give.
"Knowing that so many people have turned their back on him, he never turned his back on this country," she said.
KFOX found the man who didn't turn his back on the flag. His name is Gustus Bozarth.
"It's a small respect, folding the flag like that," said Bozarth.
He lives in the back of a warehouse just feet from the flag he saved. His only comforts are a small television and his two loyal cats named Lynx and Bobcat.
Bozarth said he's roamed all over this country, and while working security in Tampa he learned how to properly fold the flag.
Despite being homeless, he still has so much love for his country and so much respect for his flag.
"For American freedoms, freedom for America, freedom for a lot of Americans," Bozarth told KFOX.
"A homeless man who has nothing at all, he still holds on to his flag, he still holds on to the hope of his country, and that to me says a million words," said Orozco.
METI Inc. officials hope to have the flag back up as soon as possible.
This is a great story! I wanted to use this story in my blog about how this is the kind of patriotism, love of country that is instilled in Americans, or some at least. This kind of patriotism cannot be taught, but is learned through being an American. This man was homeless and maybe completely down on his luck but his respect for the Flag and country is something no government could teach. Americans all over the country are trying to help this guy, which, shows that Americans are the most giving people and will help our “neighbors” without any government intervention. The photo above is not of the man in the story, but I still thought it was riveting.

We are a Nation of laws, a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy and abiding by those laws is required of all citizens. Disregarding law leads to chaos and diminishes the American dream. I support Arizona in their efforts to provide a better quality of life for its people. Those who earned their citizenship understand the value of the pursuit and the eventual gain that comes from being a bonafide citizen. And let me state, the Arizona law that was passed is just a replica of the Federal Law. Yes, it is the job of the Federal government to enforce immigration law, but when a state is under siege and one of its cities is the kidnapping capital of the world, action must be taken. Arizona like any state should act in order to force the Federal government to do its job. Let us not forget that the Federal governments #1 job is to secure the sovereignty of the USA and protect its people.
I am not cold hearted. I want the best for my people and the people of this great Nation. I am very proud to be an American and I want the same for anyone who desires to live out their days here in the states. I do not however, agree with unlawful entry into our nation. Additionally, it disappoints me that immigrants would enter illegally and commit crimes against the tax payers. This is a double dose of " you pushed your luck too far."
Truthfully, it saddens me to hear of the treatment of Mexican immigrants by the human traffickers. It is inhumane to live in a basement or a holding house with ten, twenty other people because you're being hidden. That is no way to live for any person! I think the "system" by which immigrants earned citizenship should be less bureaucratic. I am not saying it should be the simplest task, but the current process is mind boggling. If we create a better process, then we would not have to resort to these measures to protect our borders. We could stand behind the Statue of Liberty and welcome immigrants with her inscription that reads "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." Earn your citizenship and we welcome you with open arms.

No braver patriots ever fought. No braver deeds were ever wrought.
