  • Because America is great

    Not only our history but also the fact that even if we are attacked by a forign power then your neighbor will fight to protect you just like you will fight for your neighbor. We also have the best economy compared to every other country. Plus we have freedoms that other nations don't

  • America is the best country in the world to live in.



    America is the best country in the world to live in. This is my sincere opinion. There are many factors that I believe make
    America a great place to live in.
    America is a very diverse country where anyone is welcome. America is also a stable country with a very
    strong military.


  • Yes, people should live in America.

    Despite popular belief, America is still the best nation in the world. People should continue to live in America and work and strive to meet their personal goals and aspirations. Moving away would only weaken America. Citizens need to ban together and show solidarity for their country and their love of it.

  • It doesn't get better

    In your assertions about the condition of American life, you overlook crucial facts and draw incorrect conclusions from the facts that you have chosen. Although you claim that big business’ abandonment of America proves that America is not “so good for everyone”, it in fact supports the notion that America cares for all its citizens. When big businesses leave the US it is generally in an attempt to find cheaper labor over seas. America, however, enforces a minimum wage of $7.25 in order to assure a high quality of life for its citizens. China, a common destination for big business, has a minimum hourly pay that is approximately equivalent to $1.20.
    Additionally, you suggest that most incoming workers eventually return to their native countries, though you offer no evidence to support that view. If one investigated recent immigration trends further, he would find that the annual number of immigrants to the U.S. has more than doubled since 1990. Also, if the immigrants were moving back home, then why is 13 percent of the total US population foreign born. (both statistics are from Migrationpolicy.Org)
    Furthermore, in pointing out how Savarin left America after making his fortune, you skip a crucial part of his story. After he felt he was cheated out of his share of Facebook, Savarin sued his co founder Mark Zuckerberg, in the American Court System. Savarin went on to receive a substantial settlement, which comprises a large portion of his wealth. If America had not been great country that it was, Savarin may not have been awarded the money entitled to him.
    As you consider the facts that I have mentioned above, I believe that in spite of a select few’s relative unhappiness, you will acknowledge that the perception of America’s fleeting greatness is a baseless concern.

  • Yes americans should live in america

    And they should all stay there, Americas are indoctrinated at school, fed only the news that the government want them to hear about, americans are controlled all the way though their lives there is no freedom in america, if all the americans from across the world were sent home imagine what a peaceful place it would be, you interfere where your opinion is not wanted or appreciated, yes america is great but you can keep it

  • America may offer alot, but it can be better elsewhere

    In the US, there is a standing belief that we are a country that helps support the poor, and the needy, and those without health insurance. If America were so good for everyone, why are so many businesses moving overseas? Why are workers coming in from foreign countries to work in the US and then moving back home after they made a substantial income?
    The reason why is because the cost of living in the US is TOO DAMN HIGH. Many look at the "one per-centers" who move themselves and or their assets overseas with disdain. However, would they do otherwise? When the US taxes the wealthy heavily and taxes businesses heavily, why should they not move overseas to where there are significantly lower taxes and therefore a higher profit and more investment? When the President of the United States says that he wants to significantly raise the capital gains tax due to fairness of the wealthier folk' paying their fair share- knowing full well that this hampers investment and is detrimental to the economy- why must the wealthy be forced to give away their own incomes? It is a natural law of nature that when there is a route to an area of less pressure, the buildup in the pressured area will move to the less pressured area to maintain homeostasis. Why is this any different with people and their money?
    People attack Eduardo Savarin for moving abroad and renouncing his citizenship because he is leaving the country that helped him become prosperous and "cheating". However, what has the government done to help him build his business? HE built the business- someone didn't build it for him Mr. President. If he wants to hold on to what is rightfully his, who is the government to say too bad and steal it?
    -Just because the government is doing it doesn't mean that it is right.
    If you want the wealthy to stay and "pay their fair share", let them be welcomed. Don't force them to pay for the country that treats them as evil "fat cats". If they are ruining the country, try living without them.
