Can a nation continue to prosper and survive in which a nations people are divided.
Can a nation continue to survive in which a nations people are divided as America is today, a nation which is composed of multitude of different nations peoples who's language, religious beliefs, and traditions and whose loyalties to their native countries separate them from each other.
Diversity has been promoted as a noble idea which America should be proud of having achieved but apparently without a thought it seems, about what the consequences would eventually lead to by a nation of citizens who's only commonality with each other is that they exist together in the same country.
Isn't it quite illogical and impossible for a nation composed of peoples accustomed to living under different forms of government and different traditions to ever be able to come together in a common bond of patriotic love of the country in which they resided or to unite in national unity. America is a country which has permitted immigrants to flood the country and the native born American people have been overwhelmed with immigrants which by their numbers have diluted the population to a point where more than just a foreign language separates them today. I believe that we are witnessing today a divided nation of people who because of their differences ,"Diversity ," cannot survive and dissolution is going to be America's fate if immigration isn't restricted or stopped until America's native citizens (not including anchor babies,) can once again comprise a majority of the citizens of the country with an commonality shared amongst the citizenry of America.

America may be beginning to realize where we are and the final results of having allowed mass immigration into this country, but we as a people are overwhelmed with foreign immigrants which has been permitted by the countries politicians. The countries citizens apparently powerless to stop the government from carrying out its lax immigration policies have passively allowed politicians to take over and as a results a Trojan Horse, aliens, have slipped pass our countries walls and are inside our gates destroying the country from within.

I'm pretty sure Abe Lincoln already assured you that a divided nation, is doomed to failure. I agree with that.

Thank you for your comment,"A nation divided against itself cannot stand...." While your quote from Abraham Lincoln's speech in 1858 was in reference to the slave issue , whether the country could stand divided, half of the states allowing the practice of slavery to continue and the other half of the states not continuing slavery, it is also fitting and appropriate to the situation of allowing the continuation of America's disastrous lax immigration policies dealing with immigrants coming into this country. Abraham Lincoln in his speech said this,' 'If we could first know where we are, and whither we are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to do it."
America does realize where we are as to the final results of having allowed mass immigration into this country, we as a people are overwhelmed with foreign immigrants permitted to happen by the countries politicians and the countries citizens powerless to stop the government from carrying out its lax immigration policies. we have allowed politicians to take over our lives and as a results a Trojan Horse has slipped pass our countries walls and are inside destroying the country from within
