Today is to be a celebration here in America for our independence which is sadly being changed and crushed by the government of today. It's sad to say that I was once proud to live in this country and maybe I still am since I can work, buy food and provide for my family.
The thing that is terrible about today is the government is no longer for the people and about the people. They are for personal beliefs, personal benefit and selfish prosperity for themselves, not what the majority believe.
A little boy can no longer make a fake gun with his finger & thumb because less then 1% of all people commit terrible crimes with real guns.
Hetro-sexuals and bi-sexuals waste time to argue about what marriage should be. It's a document that shouldn't be the root cause to prove one's love for another.
Our government wants all countries to live by the same democracy that it has defined, but that's dictatorship.
Yeah! The 4th of July is what it's became! A bunch of fireworks that lightup and polute the sky across the world as our government preaches about being GREEN. What a bunch of jokers! And, I'm sorry if this offends some people! I'm not right about everything, this is my opinion and, as I've always stated, isn't much!

From my point of view... Americans have got used to things being so good throughout the boom years, and now they think things should always be that good.... and things really aren't as bad as you think.
Having experienced both recently - I can tell you America is a much better place to live than England, and probably also 90% of other countries in the world.
