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 thread 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....

I guess above all else, I love the fact that we can even entertain a question like this without fear of reprisal. God bless the USA !!

Not quite what you asked, and to old to be remember by some, but just listen to one of the greatest and cleanest comedians in history with a stirring true story.

Thank you Bob and Kristi for sharing this strong and moving message. I haven't heard that for years and had forgotten about it. Thank you for bring this back to us.

I am going to send the link to all I know and to my elected officials. Sharing these wonderful words, explained so eloquently by Mr. Red Skelton is a gift for all.

You know, human nature has not changed in 4,000 or so years since Moses led the Children of Israel through the wilderness.

It always seems the more we're blessed, instead of being thankful, we find fault with anything that seems to "inconvenient" us, just like the Children of Israel did.

Have you ever noticed how many complainers actually lie about how bad things are, when in reality most of the time things are nowhere nearly as bad as they say? And have you ever noticed that the ones that are really having a hard time complain very little?

We should all take stock of what we have, and be thankful for all of our blessings. We should also make sure that before we complain, the complaint is justified, whether it is with our job, country, or any other part of our life.

I think a lot of people in America have become spoilled brats and ungrateful for what they have when they should be focusing on is really important.
