"If You Don't Like It Here, You Should Move..."

It's often tempting if you don't agree with someone else's political views, to tell them they should "move to some other country" if they don't like it here so much. That kind of thinking is actually un-American, although it's a sin I myself have occasionally fallen into.

One of the most beautiful things about America is that you can live here, be a citizen, and disagree about certain things, even major things, but we're all allowed the right to have our own ideas, beliefs, and opinions. It's in the first amendment of the Bill of Rights. A good read, I highly recommend it!

I don't agree with views of a lot of people sometimes. And they don't agree with some of my views either. But we all have that right, and nobody has to leave just because they don't agree with somebody else.

Disagreeing with the President, or agreeing with the President, or not liking a certain type of tax or government program, or whatever, doesn't mean somebody is "un-American", nor do they need to leave.

America (the US) is the greatest nation on Earth. That doesn't mean the government is always right, and it doesn't always act in the best interest of We the People. It also doesn't mean that America is always right in the ways it deals with other nations. It's our duty as citizens to take care of this nation - including making sure our government stays in line.

And with the way things have been going, we are literally *this* close to losing our nation, people! Illegal immigration is FAR worse than most official reports admit. Our economy is on the verge of collapse (it will be comparable to the Great Depression 80 years ago, if we don't get a grip on it NOW). We have quite a few enemies around the world who are becoming major threats. And that's only the tip of the iceberg that's about to hit our Titanic...
