Care More for Americans and Less for the Rest of the World
You can dress it up, put a new coat of paint on it, or spin it however you want, America is in crisis. Unable to pay it's bills, it's image tarnished, citizen's are expatriating to foreign countries in record numbers and looking for solutions. As a proud American, I will always support our government and president whether I like him or not. When will changes be made that actually matter? When will the government stop interfering where it does not belong and is not wanted?
Perhaps if the United States government began taking care of it's own people instead of running off to save people who don't want to be saved, the country would be in better shape. In 11 1/2 years I am eligible for Social Security. Will there still be Social Security? What if I wait until I am 67 1/2? If the U.S. government can't pay it's own bills, how does it expect it's tax paying citizens to do so?
For those angered by the criticism levied against the Obama administration, I have two words for you, too bad. Worry more about solving America's problems and less about addressing the critics.
My sons are Thai-U.S. citizens. They are fortunate to be American citizens. They know little of the problems of America but they will learn in due time, more than likely, sooner than later.
I did not leave the U.S. because I disliked the path upon which the country was traveling. I left to visit exotic lands and see for myself what the world outside of America really looked like. I was able to do so because I was born in the United States and thus have certain rights other nationalities may not have. I am extremely grateful to have been born in America.
In the past, simply being born in the U.S. meant having a good chance at having a decent life. Every parent wants their children to have a better life than their own. My children know little about the problems of America but they are aware they have the option of attending an American university in the future. They know they can live in the U.S. if they want. But ten years from now will they want to live there? Twenty years from now, will their children, my grandchildren, still have the same opportunities afforded those born as Americans before them? I hope so.
