Letter to the Editor

By Staff | Dec 4, 2015

I would like to commend a recent article of the Tribune written by Joseph Pelt. “The Enemy is Amongst Us” rang so true and should have caused us Americans to quiver. That we aren’t willing to STAND now for what’s good, and true, and proven over the last 240 years in America. This present perception we have that when immigrants come to this country, Americans need to adapt to them and adopt heir standards, even their other gods (note Bible references Isaiah 45:5-6, 21, 22) is most dangerous. Such sounds so generous, but the ultimate outcome of such is that our country becomes like the immigrant’s homeland – that which they chose to leave! Wouldn’t the best for all be that each immigrant embraces “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” America’s historical values or don’t come? The cliche’, “If one doesn’t stand for something, he falls for everything.” As Americans, do we stand for the principles and beliefs of the last 240 years? If we think we have progressed beyond such ideas let us ask why is it we have prospered and progressed much – is it that the ideology of the Constitution had been our guide up until now? The principles and values of our forefathers have served America very well? Will we stand for all that made America great in the past? Thank you to Joseph Pelt for the thought provoking editorial writing.

Mark Ostrem.
