Much has happened in recent years to water down that concept, part of it even involves new rules and laws by government at all levels. Additionally, it includes the nuclear family with less ties to loved ones and our mobility with so many rapidly changing homes as we move endless times and homes often become just temporary abodes until the next move. Loss of continuity and familiarity likely has much to do with the loss of our castle, but there is also something else that needs to be considered, a much bigger picture item.
As Americans, don't we consider the United States of America our home? After all, most of us were either born here or legally immigrated here with the idea to make it a lasting home. All of us have traditionally immersed ourselves into our born into or new culture, history and traditions that have made this country so special.
Today we find ourselves told to accept millions of others who no longer desire to be assimilated into the American way of life while also placing demands on us to change our ways to be more like them. What's worse, we pay the price of the high cost of relocation and living expenses while so many of our own citizens are suffering as well. And many government officials sadly don't even take the time to think about the plight of our own as they make shortsighted decisions about the migrant push. Just listen to the comments of the likes of New York Mayor Bill deBlasio and even our President to hear these viewpoints. To many of us, it is just plain outrageous.
So not only have we watered down the idea of our home being our castle when it comes to our own personal home; we have completed eliminated the concept as it applies to our citizens and our belief in America as a great big family with common interests and ideals. Instead, we are turning America into a land of division, lack of understanding and even the loss of common language with many newcomers not even being vetted to insure they are not here for mischief or evil. What's worse, analysis shows they have no desire for assimilation and no desire to find work, creating another huge bloc of "The Culture of Poverty" in a nation with overtaxed resources already.
I'll leave you with this question. Would you welcome into your own private home people about whom you have no idea what they believe in, how they will act and are unsure if your home and family will be safe? Of course you wouldn't and our nation shouldn't do so either. How about putting a lock on our nation's doors like we do on our homes?
Let common sense prevail. While America certainly wants to apply the concepts of Christian charity where it can, we are not a bottomless pit. End the madness and let's keep America safe and secure. When it's no longer home, sweet home, it won't be very pleasant and we're headed that way fast.
