John Stossel's 'What's Great About America'
« on: July 04, 2010, 05:35:14 PM »
worth watching.  will be on fox again this PM.  we need to be reminded about what's good about this country.  there IS a reason that so many work so hard to come here.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
