Ok, back to continue my post.
Another thing I love about this country: The freedom of religion. The freedom to practice any religion we choose to, from Christianity to Satinism.
Any religion, and we are allowed to follow those aspects of our religion, even if they violate the law.
I love the fact that we can walk down our streets, generally, and not have to fear for our lives, worried soldiers may shoot us, or the police will
drive by and take us out. I love our sense of security.
I love our diversity. We have peoples from every nation on earth. And they work together to form the glue which keeps our great nation together.
I love the fact that we have every climate in the world within our borders. We have polar weather in Alaska, we've got equatorial weather in Hawii,
we've got deserts, forests, mountains, swamplands, rivers, lakes, plains, and hills. And our people live in all of them, increasing our diversity
while still bringing us closer together.
I love the love Americans have for one another, even if they don't always like eachother. When there is a major crisis, we cease the bickering and
pull together. As Admiral Yamamoto said, "I fear we have awoken a sleeping giant, and filled it with a terrible resolve."
I love the determination of Americans. When we put our minds to do something, we do it. We developed the Jeep because we put our minds to it. We
connected the country with railroads because we put our minds to it. We went to the moon (this isn't a hoax thread, we'll talk in one of the 36,000
moon landing faked threads) because we wanted to.
I love how much America and Americans cherish human life. Though we know there can and will be sacrifices in conflicts such as the Gulf Wars, Vietnam,
World Wars, Korea, etc. we still morn for those we lost. Not just the families, but the entire nation.
I love America's universal education. Every man and woman, regardless of creed or race, is entitled to education.
I love the incredible amount of foodstuffs in America. America has the highest potential of any country in the world to produce food, and there are so
many different ways we prepare it! You can walk down the street in Chicago, and see one vender selling corn dogs across the street from a prestigious
French resteraunt which is next door to a Burger King, which is next door from a Chinese resteraunt, which is across the street from a Greek
I love the fact that we can criticize our government, our president, our judges, our congressmen, etc. and not worry about some secret police force
coming to our door and taking us away for torture or execution...Which brings me to my next point:
I love the fact that torture is outlawed for ALL crimes. There is nothing you can do in America, from running a red light to trying to start a
revolution, which will get you tortured in this great nation.
And finally, because I have to get to work now (I could keep going!), I love the fact that you can hate this great nation, and the government will
do nothing to you.
