STEREO VER: Bruce says: "I wanted, for the illegal immigration issue, an original song to represent the center. I thought the recent demonstators' use of the flag of Mexico was plain stupid and counterproductive. If it's the Mexican flag that's the symbol, what's with the excape at risk of death scenario and coming here? If, on the other hand, you've escaped and now want the rights and privileges of citizenship, why are you not including yourself in the American landscape and waving the <American> flag? That would engender more support from the current citizenship of the U.S. I realize the Mexican flag is a symbol of solidarity-for <Mexican> citizens. If you really deserve citizenship here, and you came here like earlier immigrants to fold into the American dream and culture, embracing the American flag would do more to convince the current citizens of your true intent to become an American. The prevalence of a foreign flag in our streets, and that of a country who many feel is conducting a de facto "invasion" in numbers of immigrants coming here illegally, turned many off in the political center and even the left who might otherwise have been supporters (and eventual voters) on this issue. Beyond that, I wanted to capture some American folk styles and idioms to give it some Americana, hence the banjo, folk guitars, and mandolin. The harmonies, that's just where I live."
