america is great because:
1.food stamps
2.W.I.C.
3.free cell phones
4.free internet
5. 500 channels in prison
6. eletricity bill assistance program.
7. section 8 housing.
9. "earned" income credit where you get income tax return checks of $8000 but didn"t pay but $1000 in income tax for the entire year.
10. salvation army giving you groceries so you can save your food stamps for later and continue to roll the amount over each month indefinitely.
11. local churches giving you groceries not knowing and not caring that you just got groceries from salvation army.
12. paying 400% more for prescription medicines than the rest of the world even though the companies that developed the medicine developed it here in the U.S. and manufactured it in the U.S.
13. Paying 300% more on health insurance premiums than I did 10 years ago.
14. Getting 1000% LESS COVERAGE on health insurance than I did 10 years ago.
15. Having a $9000 deductible on health care before I even have medical insurance benefit all the while still paying insurance premiums.
16. Being able to live with my "lady friend" which is the mother of my children in her government subsidized apartment while I make $100k per year but the government thinks my "lady friend" is a single mom so we can still get all the free benefits.
17.Paying $700 per month on health care premiums so my neighbor can pay only $25 AND have no deductible and free perscriptions.
18. Getting to enter the U.S. with no proof of who I am or prove any skills or benefits or willingness to work and immediately be able to sign up for all the good benefits listed above.
19.Being able to vote when I am not a citizen of the country I am living it.
20. Being able to voice my opinion about politics only if I have anti-Trump or pro-socialist point of view.
21. Only being considered a racist if I am a NOT democrat.
22. Allowing people the right to free speach only as long I agree with them, otherwise they must be called a racist.
23. Driving past the goverment housing projects in my 2006 model truck and seeing NEW Mercedes, BMW's, Corvettes.
24. I MUST STOP! MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS DANGEROUSLY HIGH!

I'm with you all the way brother, this country has handouts and makes it easy for the lazy bastards and thugs. I think we all know who we're talking about. But the heath insurance issues hit us all. That is lobbyists for health care having thier way with EVERY President since Nixon! I hated that POS Barack Obammy. But I have delt with a lot of illnesses in my family and it's been like this since the 80s....

Here's to Trump fixing it as promised! He's delivered on North Korea, immigration, energy, coal, China - the list goes on. He's going to fix this health care issue. Listened to his rally tonight. The FIX IS COMING!!!!

He aint gonna get the health care issue fixed. And he aint gonna get a wall built is the sad thing about it.
1. They have been talking about a wall my entire life but all we get is periodic amensty.
2. The Republican party had 7 years to have a plan to get rid of the health care bill but they had nothing when it came down to it. NOTHING.
​​​​​​4. Biden was chosen to lead the speach at
Mcains ceremony which cements my thoughts that they all are in cu-hoots together fleecing us all.
the democrats and the republicans fighting is a BIG FAT LIE! They all are freinds when the cameras are off.

Without a doubt the best country in the world. Was it ever not great? Nope. Is it perfect? Nope.
But it's really the only place in the world where you can speak your mind, seek success with a reasonable expectation that with hard work and perseverance you can actually achieve your goals.

The tree of Liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and Patriots... every 20 years or so. We are long overdue.

America is a great country because you can go into the U.S. Army as a private and retire 20 years later as a Blackhawk Pilot, and an Officer. No student loans, just common sense and a work ethic, show these and you move through the ranks and see the world. I will always appreciate what the Military has done for me, and for all those that served this great country. I was able to retire at 39, and have been doing well as an Instructor Pilot thanks to all of my training in the Army by some great people, some who have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can have our Freedoms here in the USA. This is why I believe America is a great country and I appreciate all I have! Rick.

It ain't perfect but it is GREAT! For anyone that doesn't love it here, they have the freedom to seek happiness elsewhere.

Freedom ain't free...it costs a buck o five. Buck o five yah.

America's greatness comes from the fount of wisdom embodied in the Declaration of IndrIndepend and the Constitution. Our greatness comes from the rule of law and our willingness to sbodr by it. When you have a stable government who respects the rights of the people , understands it's limited role in people's lives and respects private property, well you have a recipe for great things to happen .

Do I think we are great? In theory yes. In reality our government is turning it's back on the rule of law and the Constitution more and more. Our greatness hinges on good people acting in a good manner when governing. This is not happening. Corruption abounds today and we could lose it here in America. I do think the American people, the citizens , are in general great in their hearts, their kindness and charity towards others. Our elected officials are not so great and the American media absolutely is horrible. They are the true cancer to Republic.

No question that it is the greatest country in the universe. One suggestion to make it even greater would be to realize that we are 330million or so people, governed by 560 or so leaders all of whom are there because they won a popularity contest.I vote for tougher standards before one is eligible for leadership.

Absolutely the best country on earth. As a young man, I “travelled” to many countries courtesy of the US Navy. Wouldn’t live anywhere else!
