Quotable Quotes

"Tis our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.."
 - George Washington (1796)

"Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto."
 - Thomas Jefferson (1799)

"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States." - Ronald Reagan, 1981

"Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett in a lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997

I was raised with the notion if you donít like what is going on then do something about it.  Well, I am now doing my part and I would like your help.

Introduction: First let me introduce myself with a few highlights.  My name is John Gorena and I am an American Citizen living in Lewisville, Texas.  I am a Christian.  My ethnic heritage is of Hispanic origin (Latino).  I do not vote by party lines, nor do I vote Left vs Right. I vote for what is Right vs Wrong.  Depending on your personal location on the liberal/conservative scale I have been described as both, however, I consider myself a conservative.  Also, Since Texas is a Bi-Partisan State, I have to choose Democrat or Republican in order to vote in the primaries.  I typically choose Republican in the primaries but have been known to vote for the best candidate in any of the parties - even independent.  Currently, I lean heavily to the Republican side because the Party mostly shares my same values but by no means do I follow blindly.
     Basically, I just want to be a good Christian American family guy with my feet firmly planted on the ground and my head out of the clouds and to help where I can.  I want liberty and justice for all and to do this requires that we apply the laws to everyone.
   I have been married since 1981 and have two grown children.  In the past, I have been active with Boy Scouts, and many civic activities.  My wife and I are very active in this community.

WE ALL have to do something: On May 1, 2006, I was stirred from my American Dream life when the airwaves were filled with reports and news video of thousands of illegal aliens waving foreign flags demanding America.  This invasion was allowed to happen with very little opposition and quickly died down.  Was it forgotten or did the rest of American just go back to sleep?   I could not return to my oblivious American Dream Life without the constant stirrings of recent events.  I was groggy and unclear about the direction of this Country.  How come someone isn't doing something?

I AM AWAKE:  I decided to start this site on April 12, 2007.  I went to a political debate between candidates running for Lewisville City Council.  A question was asked about how they can support the Council's action to buy and build a Lewisville Day Laborer Site.  There was only one candidate that did not make me feel like blood was going to shoot out of my eyes.  Due to the issues brought up at this debate and ongoing issues in the headlines everyday, I felt that there was something that I could do to help others make sense of it.  The issues are very clear to me.  As I speak to others about the issues, I find that most people think like I do and have some really good ideas.  Then there are those who seem to be so misguided that they would give their soul to prove others wrong (being asleep is often filled with confusing dreams).  Some people think that they are going to be called a racist when this issue has nothing to do with race.  What race is illegal alien?  It is about Legal verses Illegal and I ask that they obey the law!

NO WAY!  I was asked why this illegal alien issue is my main topic. In a nutshell, the illegal alien problem intrudes on many topics that I am VERY concerned about.  I think that enforcing the law is the way to start clearing up a lot of the following concerns that I have:

  • Medical costs

  • our taxes

  • our welfare system

  • our schools

  • crime

  • Security of this Country

  • The Future of this Country

  • people driving without insurance (I have had three cars hit by illegal aliens that I had to pay for)

  • Identity theft

  • not paying their fair share of taxes (Employers and Employees)

  • money not being used in our economy because it is sent to their country.

  • People serving food without the proper vaccinations to be in this country.

  • And the list goes on and on...

You see, I am not just about enforcing the Law concerning Illegal Aliens. We owe them nothing but we seem to give them everything.  Enforcing the immigration laws is the first step to fixing the list of problems since that portion of the population seems to affect these areas the most.  I know that there are Americans that do all these things and the laws should be enforced there also. But enforcing current immigration laws will take care of a large chunk of these problems across the board so that we can continue working on them.

Starting to do something:  The purpose of this site is to discuss important issues in a logical manner.  I plan to have voting polls so that others can see a pulse on the issues.  I am constantly asked questions on topics that range from local Lewisville, Texas concerns up to Nation Wide topics.  As I start to answer these questions on topics, they will appear as links on the right.

Therefore, this site was created because of all the problems politicians seem to have in making decisions.  I am not a genius but I am a thinker and I think that talking about it is cheaper than therapy.  (grin - You may also see a little humor on this site.)

Let's DO SOMETHING about it! 

Thank You for getting involved,
John Gorena
