  •  I love it here in the USA (7+ / 0-)

    As others have said, it's not perfect, but it's not perfect anywhere.

    Having lived in France for 2 years and Canada for 4 months and traveling extensively, I've come to the conclusion that there's no place like home.
    Better the devil you know.

    My outlook vastly improved once we stopped watching the news, except for the weather.
    There's so much negativity and fear in the news and I don't even read much news beyond headlines on the Internet.
    I just live in my world - my home, my neighborhood - and enjoy the pleasure of nature, good food, my husband, books, comedy movies and sitcoms.
    I can't do much to change the ways of the world other than vote, so I don't worry about it.
    Can't worry overly much about the things that I cannot change.
    Plus, I know how hard it was for my grandparents and my father to come here and build lives and they went through and survived much worse than many of us today.
    C'est la vie.

    •  I agree with much you've said above. (2+ / 0-)

      My wife and I have traveled to many places and found all of them wonderful in their own way.   We've considered living elsewhere.   Sometimes the little greek island of Paros or Lido, Venezia seems like a good idea...or some small village in Normandy..and then reality sets in.  

      We too have stopped listening to the news.  Drives us crazy.   We're living in our world, like you, and enjoying what we have.
