America Quotes, Sayings about USA
Most of the men in my family have served in this nations military, so I have a naturally strong pride in my country, so please excuse me when I say this if it does not apply to you:
If you hate living in this country so much, then why the heck don’t you get out of it?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? >:(
I know there might not be people that hate living in this country on this website, but I’ve seen nasty comments on YouTube after watching videos about the military and I can’t say anything because I don’t have an account and am not allowed to have one, and I really wanted to get my opinion out there.

For those pessimists who enjoy living in America, if you think other countries have no problems, think again? If you think you got it bad, go to Syria, if you think you are getting poor, go to Somalia, if you think you are not free, go North Korea then you really understand the meaning of wealth, health and freedom.
