I'm thankful to be living in the U.S. As I watch the news, I'm very thankful that I live in the U.S....there are problems here, yes...political being one of the major ones....but there is much more that's good about it than bad.
There are no disadvantages about living in the USA -
Well, we do have the best medical care in the world. Oh. Wait. That would be France.
OK, we do have the most upward mobility in the world. Oh, wait - tht would be Denmark.
If nothing else, we rule with the most gun deaths of any civilized country.
Not trying to run the country down. I'm a vet, and I love it here. But looking at things thru rose-colored glasses is not a good practice if you want to see the truth. We could be every so much more with just a little effort.
