An American is a citizen by birth or by choice. The American name belongs to you. It is an honor not a privilege whether rich or poor, no matter race or skin color. Under the Bill of Rights everyone is protected to pursue what ever kind of future he wants. Americans don’t quit when there are obstacles or challenges. We don’t give up.
When people use racism for an excuse why they can’t succeed, that’s a lame reason. Let’s take a lookout some people that came from living in object poverty to becoming very wealthy.
Oprah Winfrey— born in dirt poor poverty in Mississippi to a teenage mom. Today her net worth is 2.9 billion dollars.
Shahid Khan— came from Pakistan; got to America and had nothing. Went to work as a dishwasher and became an American citizen. Today he is worth 7 billion dollars.
Clarence Thomas— born in Pin Point Georgia his father left and his mother struggling financially she had to send him to live with his maternal grandparents. Today serves as a Supreme Court Justice.
Fredrick Douglas— was born in slavery. He escaped slavery and became the first black US Marshall and was the most photographed man in the 19 Century. He became a famous author and public speaker.
There are thousands of examples of Americans from all walks of life that have come from hard times and became successful and wealthy by hard work and determination. That is the American spirit.
Americans are overall the most generous giving people in the world; always first to help where ever disaster strikes. Americans are always willing to give a hand up to help people that are having a rough start. But supporting them why they lay around for threat of their lives is what Americans object to.
In America there is an abundance of programs that are available for people who want a better life; like education loans, small business loans that help minorities and all people that need help to get their own business. These are just a couple programs there are many more. If you need a way to build a future there is a program to help.
Being an American means getting involved in the political process, not only by voting and discerning the best candidates, but making sure that they are not running to pursue an agenda, but to work toward the common good of the American citizen.
Being an American does not mean that you can’t have difference of opinion on issues, but having a debate to accomplish the very best consensus for the common good.
Being an American is appreciation and respect for the flag that is the symbol of freedom all over the world. And when the national anthem is played you stand proud and put your hand over your heart in total respect and gratitude for living in the greatest country on earth.
Being an American means supporting The Constitution that guarantees the rights and liberties that are derived from our creator.
People that don’t want to be called an American, do not support are military, hate the Constitution, hate our history, won’t salute the flag, and have no respect for the flag. So in general there is nothing about America they like. So my question is if you don’t want to be an American why don’t you just leavened go to some place you like. America would be a lot better off not having to put up with your constant complaining. So my request is will you PLEASE LEAVE.
