    It's about economics. Some say each lucky native American is born with a potential base economic value of $1 million--- just from being born here. But they don't all take advantage of it. The base economic value of citizens in other lands is much less. So they come here to get their million (your million) and often make more. But another reason they come here is because America has disrupted the economic resources of so many other countries by setting up money lending systems against those countrys' natural resources. In the end nations get cheated and the people are impoverished and oppressed That's why many people believe America is bad, but you'd better come here for your first million!

    The people risking their lives to live here don't think America is bad.

    America isn't bad...people come here because they know it is the best place in the world to live, even with all of it's faults. Americans complain about America because they love it, and want to keep it the best place on earth. Everyone else is jealous.

    People love to hate. It's unfortunately true and there doesn't seem to be a whole lot anyone can do about it. If some don't have something to hate, they will create something. The USA is very handy to hate because of the crap going on around the world. Sometimes there is a good reason to hate what is going on also. To say everything we do is right is ignorant. There is no country in the world who does everything right. All are biased to something.

    Please stop sprouting these Republican rhetorics. America is a great country, that is not in debate. But could it be a better country, is it perfect, that is highly debateable. If you feel America is perfect and has no problems that fine but for me, I wish my country was as close to perfect as it can be. The best analogy I can come up with is what's better a million dollars or a billion dollars. Both are great but which is better?

    Reason is, that they are seeking a free, way of living... sure they come over here and work, a couple of years... but they send the money back to their country, or they go home and retire, on it. They are not seeking a better life, they are trying to get revenge. On us Americans...

    Yeah, ask Bill Maher, Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, Cindy Sheehan and all those other Anti American idiots.

    Let them live with their buddy in Iran for a while!

    Let me say this, our country is so rich, that the poorest people in our country are the most obese! What does that tell you!

    You know what, this is a good question. Some people want to come to this country to work and start families, but they hate this country.

    I have family members in the us marines and they're fighting for this country everyday.

    So for those who think that America is a bad country, please go find a better country that will please you, your needs and expectations.

    So they can have the freedom to trash us and make our country as bad as the one they came from. They believe in equality - they feel that the entire world needs to be equally poor.
