What is it that is responsible for making America the envy of the whole world?
Why is it Elian’s mother and so many others die trying to come to America?
Forgive my frustration with this, but it’s NOT freedom – at least, not for most people.
It’s the good life. It’s the potential to become wealthy, to have the “things” we want! Our own home, cars, motorcycles, boat, guns, swimming pool, etc.
It’s . . . . the desires of our heart, if you like. Never mind, that things do not bring happiness; that revelation comes later … In fact, spiritual growth often comes only after one begins to find that there is no real happiness in materialism!
OK; we’ve agreed it’s the good life that draws people here . . . . . . what is it that facilitated that?
Was it Socialism? Oh.
Then WHY did you vote for a socialist?
