Why is Our Country a Great Place to Live?

There are a lot of job opportunities for everyone regardless of class, race, or gender. In our America we value freedom and equality so that no one is judged by their appearance and everyone is given equal chances for an education and for a job.

Also, consumers have a lot of choice in what they want to buy. The government, unlike the communists, do not completely control what the consumer is allowed to buy.

In addition, since we value freedom so much, everyone is allowed to have freedom of religion, and we do not judge people based on their sexuality.
