"People always say 'We're a nation of immigrants' as a rationale to allow illegal immigrants to stay, find a path to citizenship, and so on. In other words, since we started that way, that path must be continued indefinitely. But aren't we are also a nation born of, and founded by revolution? And does that mean we should continue to revolt? Why work with a dysfunctional government?"
A few other thoughts:
We're a nation of slaveowners.
We're a nation of indigenous people-killers.
We're a nation of atomic bomb-droppers.
We're a nation of Jim Crow law-enforcers.
We're a nation of polluters.
We're a nation of people who drove many animals, like the buffalo, to near extinction.
