sorry folks, but it's true. you know it. i know it. i have no hatred toward immigrants per se, though i oppose unchecked immigration. however, i do hate traitors, panderers and other swine who betray their compatriots. in that case, it's quite personal. on the other hand, nobody can really blame someone who wants higher wages. that's no reason we need to accept every one of them, but at the very least, i don't feel personally betrayed by your average immigrant, while i do feel betrayed by so many falsifiers, panderers, and frauds who call themselves Americans. it's impossible not to feel slightly proprietary about one's nation, especially if that nation is the United States.
