    Often said that "America was founded on diversity."

    Not according to the founders.

    Racial diversity, ethnic diversity, religious diversity...all parts of our founding and our strength today. What we are not, and should never be, is culturally diverse. We are one culture composed of a diverse people.

    That use to be the case. Not really true any more. Liberalism has changed all that. One tenant of Liberalism that is most harmful (actually all are harmful) is the denigration of American culture.

    The Fifth Column marches among us and sadly many can't or refuse to see it.

    This sort of thing is mere semantics, and will be used as such be anyone with any agenda. Culture is seen as many things by many people. What unites us are the common principles upon which our nation was founded and we have tried to live up to ever since.
