If USA gives up its freedoms, in any way for feelings of security and
safety, then this country has been beaten. Our founding fathers fought and

country from Holland in the 1680's to the English colony of Massachusetts
and from Wales in the 1720's to New York and New Jersey, a former Dutch
Acts of terrorism and extremists do not represent any group of people and
cannot form the basis of a comment concerning a race, nationality or people.

will continue to gain strength from its immigrant groups.
My 2 cents.
