Congress is prohibited from making laws establishing religion or abridging freedom of speech. The Fourth Amendment safeguards citizens’ right to be free from unreasonable government intrusion in their homes through the requirement of a warrant.  The Bill of Rights was strongly influenced by the Virginia Declaration of Rights, written by George Mason. Other precursors include English documents such as the Magna Carta, the Petition of Right, the English Bill of Rights, and the Massachusetts Body of Liberties. https://billofrightsinstitute.org/founding-documents/bill-of-rights/ Why is Freedom of Speech Important New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/12/learning/why-is-freedom-of-speech-an-important-right-when-if-ever-can- it-be-limited.html Various Website Views: Everything Everywhere dot com: 7 Things That Are Awesome About America https://everything-everywhere.com/7-things-that-are-awesome-about-america/ 2) Roads. As much as we might complain about our roads, we have it good. The Interstate Highway System is the most impressive network of roads in the world if only because of the sheer scale of the project. In Australia, which is about the same size as the continental United States, and even large parts of the Trans- Canadian Highway, are two lanes. You can go north, south, east and west all over the US on four lane, divided highway with exit ramps. If you had enough fuel and didn’t have to sleep or eat, you could go border to border without stopping. Even remote parts of the country have the same four-lane, divided highway with on/off ramps. https://everything-everywhere.com/7-things-that-are-awesome-about-america/ Good News Network:   12 greatest things about America https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/12-greatest-things-about-america-2/ Excerpt: ) The Founding Fathers – The first men (and women) in the modern world to wrestle with the meaning of freedom and natural-born rights, and how these should be the foundation of any government.

Dineshdsouza: 10 great things about America https://www.dineshdsouza.com/news/10-great-things-about-america/ Excerpt: Rich people live well everywhere. But what distinguishes America is that it provides an impressively high standard of living for the “common man.” We now live in a country where construction workers regularly pay $4 for a nonfat latte, where maids drive nice cars and where plumbers take their families on vacation to Europe. Indeed, newcomers to the United States are struck by the amenities enjoyed by “poor” people. This fact was dramatized in the 1980s when CBS television broadcast a documentary, People Like Us, intended to show the miseries of the poor during an ongoing recession. The Soviet Union also broadcast the documentary, with a view to embarrassing the Reagan administration. But by the testimony of former Soviet leaders, it had the opposite effect. Ordinary people across the Soviet Union saw that the poorest Americans have TV sets, microwave ovens and cars. They arrived at the same perception that I witnessed in an acquaintance of mine from Bombay who has been unsuccessfully trying to move to the United States. I asked him, “Why are you so eager to come to America?” He replied, “I really want to live in a country where the poor people are fat.” AMERICA OFFERS MORE OPPORTUNITY AND SOCIAL MOBILITY THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY, INCLUDING THE COUNTRIES OF EUROPE Excerpt:  America is the only country that has created a population of “self-made tycoons.” Only in America could Pierre Omidyar, whose parents are Iranian and who grew up in Paris, have started a company like eBay. Only in America could Vinod Khosla, the son of an Indian army officer, become a leading venture capitalist, the shaper of the technology industry, and a billionaire to boot. Admittedly tycoons are not typical, but no country has created a better ladder than America for people to ascend from modest circumstances to success.

While there are a lot of naysayers out there who question how amazing the USA is, that’s just because they’re jealous and hate freedom. Our country has gone through a lot in such a short time; we had a bloody and painful birth as a nation. It was only through hard work, spirit, determination and the good old fashion grit of the American that we’ve managed to drag our way through the darkness of tyranny into the lightness of freedom. As our forefathers helped us throw the ancient yoke of monarchy that burdened humanity’s shoulders throughout the long centuries, it is up to us to uphold those initial ideals and always fight for justice no matter what the cost. Our country has had good times as well as bad, but its up to us to lead the way as our for all that is right.
