Maybe the America you know is gone, but actually, Danny, every generation has lamented that. It looks like you're not adaptive to change. If you as really old peoole what they think, you'd be surprised how many would say that it's changed more than people in their 50s and 60's think, and for the much better. Today, moe Americans enjoy rights and priviledges not afforted to those who were born 20 to 30 years before that age group. Guess you just don't like progress. Just the truth.

Change for the better is good, but not if it means giving up on the true ideology that our forefathers had in mind when they wrote the declaration. We as a country should always refer back to the original document before we try to make changes, just to make sure we stay in line with what our founding fathers wanted in the first place.

USA has always stood for freedom for all, that's why we are a melting pot of different nationalities and cultures.

It's pretty unfair to criticize the creators of the declaration of independence for not taking on slavery. They would have to fight the revolutionary war and civil war at the same time.

Being in my sixties and knowing this country well. I believe everyone has the right to come here if they enter the country LEGALLY. Just like my ancestors did!!! And if you do not follow this procedure, I consider you a CRIMINAL and a drain on society. GOD BLESS AMERICA
