From sea to shining sea... by ISeeTheLattice From sea to shining sea... by ISeeTheLattice
Have you figured me out yet?

I'm just like you...
I look out for others,
I look out for my own.

Ideally I would like to live beyond the dictims and politics of a state,
But even still... I have always loved my country, even if it hates me.

I believe that everyone deserves a chance, and the benefit of the doubt.
But I hold no illusions that an overwhelming benefit for the many wouldn't come to the detriment of a few in however a way...
And for whomever belongs to this oppressed latter,
it may be surprising to know that they may not always be the ones we'd expect to bear having to deal with it.

I am an American...
But it is my personal belief that my potential in life should never have to be constrained by the eb and flow of an ever-changing standard here,
And thus I believe it wrong when others would say that I must be remain here to be subjected to the numbing mediocrity expected of the rest...
When indeed I may attain that maximal potential whilst seeking better pastures elsewhere.

Even still... I will always believe in this very American credo;

And the pursuit of happiness. :aww:

I feel so strangely patriotic now after writing all of that [link] lol:salute::iconexplodelaplz:

I love America but abhor every war the US governments have brought us into since the end of WWII, cause that's not the America that my ancestor William Polk fought for, neither was it the America that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, James Monroe, and Ethan Allen fight for. Nor was that the America that the following generations of American hero's like Susan B Anthony, Henry David Thoreau, William Seward, Abraham Lincoln, Eugene Debs, Upton Sinclair, and Martin Luther King Jr stand for.

Sure, no question that in past USA had nice ideals, but we are currently in present. There's written : I like having me freedom,  I like having my choice.
So how did you proud citizen used this blessings?

Lets see statistics:
1. Biggest polluters: China emits about 6,018 million tons of greenhouse gases per year.  2: The United States is a close second with 5,903 tons.

List of countries by number of military/soldiers : 1.China: 2,285,000 2. United States of America: 1,429,995

Now lets see, China Population:1. 1,344,130,000 2. USA Populatin: 316,577,000
So can you see the difference?
