Letter to the editor: U.S.A., greatest country ever

Cuba, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, North Africa, Japan, South Korea and Iraq, to name a few. Blood was spilled to liberate these countries, all back in the original people’s hands. If you read history, this is an exceptional and very rare thing to do by a country, and that country is the United States of America.

This is just one thing to demonstrate that we live in the greatest country ever. I am angry and tired of hearing Americans and the Democratic Party demean our country and try to change it to something totally different. The question these people should ask themselves is, where they could go to be in a better place and be allowed to conduct themselves in the same way? I believe the answer is nowhere.

Why would anyone want to take the tried and true success of capitalism and experiment with the tried and true failure of socialism? As in Venezuela, a day without toilet paper is a very bad day, and it is most days there.

Wake up, leftists, before we all get what you are asking for.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
