Great idea: American Foreign Legion

It may be so silly that Stephen Colbert suggests it, but I think there is much merit to the idea of an American Foreign Legion. People do want to come to America to earn money but many American citizens don't want them to 'take our jobs'. By fighting for this country they'd earn the respect of most conservatives and liberals by proving they believe in both the cause of freedom and the need to emigrate legally. Hey, even let their sacrifice pay for their immediate family! I'm pleased to find that many agree with this idea so it may just be a matter of time. The fact that one of the first Iraq War casualties was not a citizen doesn't hurt, either.

And try as I might, I can't make a smooth transition to a reference to the Jean-Claude Van Damme movie Legionnaire.
