People who haven’t been here or haven’t lived here long enough don’t know what America is truly like. It isn’t perfect as so many hope to believe. We aren’t basking in glory or have a feast fit for a king. We have fast food restraunts that have so much grease its causing people to become obese or have heart problems. Along with that most Americans don’t even exercise, which also cause obesity.  We don’t have fresh smelling air; it’s polluted along with the water. Our lands aren’t clean we have people which I frown upon dump their trash on the side of the highway or into the oceans killing animals and making most of our lands look like dumps. There are areas dedicated for that purpose so why don’t you take the time and drive and dump it there? We aren’t a safe haven we have rapes, unsolved murders, abuse of all kinds, and people with old prejudice.  For the French who have called us arrogant…yeah we are. You want to know why? It’s because we have had to deal with people who want to cause fights. We were and still are a young nation and yet we are acting like parents over squabbling children. One side wants to be the cowboy or the police and the other sides wants to be the Indian or the robbers. Germany just wanted to kill the whole Jewish race and God knows what side they were on. Yeah we aren’t perfect, we’re arrogant, and hell most of us are sinful. But America is the best damn nation. I as in American admit our faults. We have so much to learn. We have freedoms that some would take advantage of. We have laws some don’t even know why we have or are unclear and some don't follow them. We have presidents that failed to make our nation better. I’m not going to sit here and lie about America. By all means come here…see it for yourself. Its not the worst place to live. All of the above is true, but not all states, not all oceans, highways and even the mountains are like that. I will admit all states have fast food joints. I will admit you won’t see the garbage unless you really pay attention to your surroundings because people who are stupid to begin with are becoming better at hiding it. There are places that are beautiful. If you have the chance see the Grand Canyon, drive through Yellowstone National Park, go to the Lincoln Memorial, and just walk around in the little stores and gift shops. Like I said I admit our faults, but it’s about time that all nations and all countries admit their faults. It’s about time we all set aside our differences. I am tired of waking up in the morning and seeing death. Tired of seeing someone who got bullied, who got raped, and some who have lost their jobs because they wanted to do the right thing. Tired of all the threats of terrorism and the use of nuclear weapons. Wake up and stand up against this! I don’t want to stand alone. You don’t have to agree with me. Hell, insult me for all I care. I am not a liar. This is down right honesty from me. All of the America can hate me for this, but I don’t care. I am not a liar. I will never sink to that level unless I had a good damn reason. So threaten me all you want because I have overcome everything you possibly have to say. I don’t hate America…I love America, but if our president and our people are not going to stand up and say, “Hey no more war, no more hatred, we have to stick together not only as a nation, but a whole god damn world. One day this is all going to go to hell and when that day comes I don’t want to stick it out alone and at every turn some one is going to kill me.” Then hey I’ll say it! I’ll tell the truth…people will turn on one another if they think it’s the only way to survive and that sickens me. So you can either handle the truth and stand up for what’s right or be one of the people who will do anything for personal gain including murder.
