    Default DR1 impetus for Dominican nationalism

    After reading a fb post that was making the rounds on the 16th I realized DR1 and the comments of many of it's posters confirms what many Dominicans think of foreigners: especially when they want to meddle in their politics.

    Here is their quote I am referring to:

    Hoy, mas que un día festivo es una fecha conmemorativa que debe llenarnos de patriotismo y hacernos recordar a esos hombres valientes que se entregaron por la patria. Los dominicanos debemos luchar día a día para no ser privados de nuestra libertad, para hacer valer la identidad de nuestra nación y lograr que permanezca libre de toda potencia extranjera.

    So keep up the good work.

    We, dominicans, should because people like you don't read the constitution. I don't think that person was talking about any foreigner who enjoys the DR culture and wants to become a citizen. They were likely talking about people who want to disrupt the culture and coop the country.

    I wonder how many DR1 users are expats (# who enjoy DR, # who visited and now cant get themselves to see the allure) and and how many are dominicans (who either emigrated or live in DR) and are looking for informationand to connect with others.

    Dominicans can relish their independence very well, being as they had to win it several times.

    Not being a citizen, I am neutral about Dominican politics.

    libre de toda potencia extranjera? free of all outside power?

    and exactly how is that going to be achieved when the DR is a developing nation which is economically dependent upon the core countries?

    chump didn't "Get It"!!!!
    The message is NOT about any "Foreigners" living in the DR, it's about "ONE PERSON's" idea that the DR should not be influenced by "Foreign Countries"!!!!
    Did you expect anything else from him?????

    Exactly. OP missed the boat on that one. Reading for comprehension not a strong point for him.

    ANY pretext to show how "Dominican" he is, how dumb we are,and how we don't "Fit In' Here.
    The only two things he forgot was an anti abortion comment, and a "USA BASH"!!!!
