America is Still the Land of Opportunity

I see a lot of people here in America – hating America lately. I see people complaining about Capitalism. I see people complaining that the government isn’t helping them enough. Don’t get me wrong – some people qualify for assistance – but most are fully capable of not only earning a good living on their own – but becoming, at least to some extent, “rich”…

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been watching immigrants come to the U.S. and earn a great living. The country they come from isn’t wealthy like ours – and they aren’t used to the riches and luxuries of a wealthy nation. Perhaps this is to their advantage.

Let’s take China for example. Outside of big cities like Shanghai and Beijing, China is a poor country. Chinese people living in rich cities don’t move to America. Why would they? Shanghai is like New York City. It’s rich. They work hard and party hard. They drive nice cars. They wear nice clothes. They’re the same as us.
