Nobody’s Fool: Teddy Roosevelt on Being an American

Nobody’s Fool

Here’s Teddy Roosevelt in 1907. And here’s one of his best quotations…When was the last time you heard this from an American President?

‘In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’

 Theodore Roosevelt 1907 Every American citizen needs to read this!

  1. He is by far one of the most misunderstood President’s of all time, and perhaps one of the greatest. I am glad someone else out there understands the wisdom that comes from Theodore Roosevelt.
