I am so thrilled at the thought of people "coming to America", that I often say "WHY?". America after all, has a robust economy second to none and envious by the entire world. Sure, America has faults, who doesn't? America works through those faults and tries to compete politically for improved measures based on people with variety of beliefs and agendas to force "their" way on all of us. The vote is one way to force change, but so is protest. So, why does America allow citizens alike to protest? Because our heroic veterans over the centuries of battles defend and protect our rights to protest, and our rights to religion, and our rights to live freely in this country. If one would just review the countries in this world, you would see there are many horrific treatment of people and their civil rights, like many, what civil rights? So, what does America make it a country that so many immigrants stand in line to gain admittance into brave and beautiful country. What do immigrants say in unison with other immigrants when becoming citizens of the United States? Apparently, some immigrants choose to lie on their oaths just like other American citizens lie to their allegiance to this country. Nobody is saying America is not without problems, we have many problems. A greedy economy is as a result of greedy people reaching for all they may accumulate, which is often more than anybody can spend in a lifetime. Greed and Power are ranking character traits of a capitalistic society. Is that different anywhere else? I see more often now where countries seek "The Democratic Way", to approach being like America, so why is that? America must be doing it right if countries are trending our way. America is often approached for protection from terrorist agendas and other countries that desire to overwhelm their social way of life. All you need to do is wise up to what America achieves in aiding other countries and see how other countries are marching in step with our efforts to achieve freedom around the world.
The best analogy for this thread on our praise to Veterans, is this Internet Posting for the Democratic Hub, thank a veteran, they gave you the rights enabling you the freedom of speech through our Constitution for you speak for and against institutions. It is very ironic, like a dog biting the hand that feeds him, our Veterans Protect and Defend our rights and our freedoms around the world as Citizens of the United States.
Bless our Veterans and all you immigrants becoming citizens, remember your oath to America.
