I didn't ever say anything about requiring people to act a certain way, so you didn't really answer my question.

Are you telling me that you see absolutely no value in assimilation? Your post suggests that at a minimum you think people need to be willing to assimilate to the point that they accept our concept of property rights, the rule of law, and the authority of our constitutional government. That's not a given, that's a form of assimilation. Those concepts aren't universal.

Getting back to language, which seems to be your primary bugaboo, do you really think it's equally desirable to import 1,000,000 people in a year who want to learn enough English to get by as it would be to import 1,000,000 people who speak nothing but Norwegian and refuse to even consider learning anything else?

Again, you're dodging my question. I'm curious about how you found this place. Suzzer is a guy who recently talked about pointing people on another political forum to this place and your posts remind me of him in a way. Maybe it's just a coincidence. So how did you find this place? Are you a Chiefs fan? An NFL fan of a different team? Just someone interested in politics, but not particularly interested in football? I'm just curious about who I'm talking to.
