[[ Richardson: Opposition to Illegals 'Nativist' Tea Party Trying to Keep 'America Pure' ]]
OK, I'm going to come right out and ask:
What's wrong with that?
Just opened the dictionary on my Mac, and typed in "conserve":
verb |kənˈsərv| [ with obj. ]
protect (something, esp. an environmentally or culturally important place or thing) from harm or destruction
Again I will ask:
What's wrong with trying to protect the American culture that was almost exclusively the product of Euro-Americans against being overwhelmed by other cultures that care little for our economic and cultural values?
I have absolutely no problem with that.
Richardson -- like it or not -- is correct in his assessment.
