The American citizen is very complacent about standing up for rights. I have a question: Are we being taken over quietly because of our complacency?

The huge debts to China, India and the Arab countries means they own some collateral presence here. The huge illegal immigrant presence is a debt to the taxpayer. The number of taxpayers and their ability to pay taxes is dwindling. Our politicians are not doing their jobs. Sing: If they are in, vote them out.
