We have discussed, argued and debated equal rights many times on this forum but how many of you know what it is like to live with laws that suppress your religious rights, or language rights or education rights etc.?
Can a person really appreciate freedom if they've always had it?
I have lived with laws whose sole purpose is to suppress my rights and I can tell you that I will NEVER do it again!

No I haven't, thank goodness. I'm very appreciative of the fact that I was born in a here. God could have set my a** down anywhere in the wold and I feel I'm very fortunate to have been born in the USA. I read a lot about the struggles of people in other countries and it's hard to understand why so much of the world lives under such extremely inhumane conditions. I can't understand how people living in truly deplorable conditions manage to survive.

Don't think it can't happen in America because it creeps up on you and by the time you see it, it's too late! There are already rumblings about English/Spanish language laws in America.
Oh my god, it IS happening! This country is being forced by illegal aliens to learn their language and print it on our forms. They demand--and get--rights that I don't have access to as a legal citizen of this country--free health care, free schools for their kids, free housing. How long before Spanish will be the national tongue instead of English? They may have lost the Mexican-American war, but they're going to get our country one way or another because we refuse to enforce our own immigration laws. I know. I live in "illegal alien" central!
