WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT AMERICA?

In rebuttal to the reporter who asked a presidential candidate at a recent debate, "What do you dislike most about America?"

First off, I cannot imagine a question like that being asked a person who is running for the highest office in the land, leading our country.

Can you imagine John Kennedy being asked such a question? Or Reagan or Roosevelt?

However a Daniel Duchovnik from Walnut Creek, California, wanted to know: What do you dislike most about America?

This is an open invitation to post what we LOVE MOST America!

Listen up Daniel!


I love the beauty of America, "purple mountains majesty, above the fruited plains"

I love that I can get in my car and have the freedom to drive across my country without special papers or permission

I love the opportunities to have in America; you can be all you can be if you are willing to work hard for success

I love the variety of choice we have in America

I love that we have the freedom to worship where and what we want

I love that we have the freedom to criticize, protest, join and help reform our government

I love the wit, moxie, and generosity of Americans

I love and appreciate the abundant lifestyle in America

I love.... http://mybeautifulamerica.com/mybeautifulamerica.htm

I love the pure beauty of our big, wide land - and the beauty of those who live in and love her.

"The poet called Miss Liberty's torch 'the lamp beside the golden door.' Well, that was the entrance to America, and it still is. And now you really know why we're here tonight.

The glistening hope of that lamp is still ours. Every promise, every opportunity, is still golden in this land. And through that golden door our children can walk into tomorrow with the knowledge that no one can be denied the promise that is America. Her heart is full; her torch is still golden, her future bright. She has arms big enough to comfort and strong enough to support, for the strength in her arms is the strength of her people. She will carry on in the '80s unafraid, unashamed, and unsurpassed. In this springtime of hope, some lights seem eternal; America's is."
