Republic Rules - The U.S.A. is a great representative republic.

An ongoing discussion of how it works… and why it works.

Not Democrat, not Republican - Constitutional Conservative

Is The Melting Pot Cooling?

I believe one of the reasons the U.S. became so strong was the fact that it was NOT made up of a single type of people… it became that proverbial melting pot… which was hot enough to BLEND all of the nationalities together into a strong amalgam.  The resulting mixture was stronger, in fact, than any of the individual “parts”.   The people, with diverse backgrounds, all became “Americans”.  And they were proud Americans first and proud Italians or proud Irish or proud whatever second.

At some point not so long ago, people started to put their HISTORICAL nationalities before their current nationality.  While there’s nothing inherently wrong with that, I believe it leads to a mindset that is counterproductive.  It puts what you “were” up on a pedestal and downgrades what you “are”.  That just doesn’t make much sense to me.

I think it’s great to be proud of your lineage.  Just be most proud of what you are NOW.
