“Lieb Vaterland magst ruhig sein fest steht und treu die Wacht am Rhein”


"Beloved Fatherland, you can be (quiet) relieved the (watchmen) guards stand firmly and loyally guarding the Rhine." It was a poem written by Max Scheckenburger which reassured the Germans that their Rhine was safe from France and other foreigners.  It was composed in the 1800’s, giving reassurance.

Today in the United States and other countries there is very little reassurance of safety.  Terrorists are invading our beloved land, killing innocent human beings without having the least regard and no conscience about the victims of their sadism and misbegotten criminal beliefs.  We witnessed this in the massacre in Boston, the conscience free Mexicans who walk across our borders creating mayhem with our stability, and much more.  It appears that the United has been removed from our United States of America.  We allow our citizens to be exposed to death, hunger, and all that comes from our recklessness, not having a firm and governmentally ordered strict border patrol policy, allowing and almost encouraging foreigners to collect welfare payments from our citizens' income/taxes.  It appears that American citizens have lost their rights to be free and unencumbered by our enemies.  We have just to look at the two criminal brothers who invaded Boston, attended our American colleges where they planned to kill our innocent people, eventually murdering and maiming innocent folks who had come to participate and observe a sports event.  We are unfortunately not alone.  In England in May of 2013, foreign terrorists killed a British soldier who walked peacefully in broad daylight on a street in London.  He was maimed and sliced to death with knives from one of the Muslim terrorist intruders.

With all of the crimes, we have ignored the safety of our citizens.  One must be afraid of being in groups, in celebrations outdoors, in participating in public events, for fear we will become the targets of criminals who have invaded our shores.  It seems that our beloved Statue of Liberty is no longer able to protect our Americans. 

Our government does not protect its citizens and gives our incomes to the evil factions of terrorists.  There is no “Watch” on our land, no guards to protect our rights, our income, or our possessions.  Pity must not be wasted on terrorists, criminals who enter our beloved country illegitimately, etc.

There has to be equality for all of our decent, law abiding citizens, and their needs must come before we give wrongful entrance to our enemies who pose as our friends.  Other countries do not open their doors to our people at random and without examining their requests without substantiating their viable reason.  When we do enter a foreign land, we must show a passport and respect the demands, the laws, and the directives of the people in charge of immigration to be admitted.  We must produce proof that we have no criminal history.  A good example is our neighboring country, Canada.  We must show them our passport, a bill of particulars, sometimes known as a “rap sheet,” declaring what our history reveals.  If, for instance, we had a notation of a DWI (driving while intoxicated), we are prohibited from crossing the Canadian border.  There are many legal steps that must be taken before we are eligible to be admitted.

In past years we were much more cautious in allowing outsiders to enter our borders.  Even during the Nazi era during the late 1930’s to the mid 1940's when the Jewish people had to escape from Hitler’s Germany, there were quotas to allow a relatively very small number permitted to enter America’s borders.  The formerly adulated President Franklin Delano Roosevelt closed the USA’s  doors/borders to desperately terrified Jewish people;  six million of these human beings were exterminated and yet Roosevelt refused to let them enter.   

What has happened to our government  that we are allowing criminals/terrorists and other  illegal foreigners to permit  entrance to our beloved country; to harass and destroy the  erstwhile freedom for our hardworking and honest citizens?!!
