When A Liberal Bad Mouths America, It’s Because They Haven’t Been Anywhere....

What gets me about liberals, is they probably have NO idea about the world in general. Yet, they wouldn’t sit down with me for five minutes to hear about the REAL world. I’ve been places people! Europe (England, Scotland, France, Belgium, Spain, Norway, Germany), Africa (Nigeria, Morocco), Asia (China, Japan, South Korea), Southeast Asia (Malaysia), South America (Venezuela), Mexico, Trinidad, Gibraltar, and the Bahamas (Freeport). I’ve been to all those places. And I’m not talking about ‘vacation’ spots. I’m talking about where the people of these countries REALLY live. I’ve been in Nigeria where I had to have armed guards around me 24 hours a day. You know why? Because there were over 120 million Nigerians who lived hand to mouth every day. They lived in corrugated tin and rotted wood shacks with dirt floors and would cut my throat for a dime if they could get to me. I was rolled by security for one thousand Naira in the Lagos airport. I was rolled by security for a bag of candied popcorn at the Port Harcourt airport. You do not resist. You give them what they want or you will have a whole new ‘welcome to Nigeria’ experience. I saw a naked woman outside our compound, bathing in an algae infested mud hole because she didn’t have a home or running water. You want to talk about how sorry THIS country is? I’ve seen the oppressed. With my own eyes. I bought my Nigerian bodyguards a beer ONE time, and then was told they would kill for me. For a beer!!!! I’ve seen squalor, disease, pestilence, danger, suffering and misery in my travels, Mr. and Ms. Liberal. What have YOU seen? I’ve seen people taxed to death in Europe. I’ve seen where women are nothing more than third class citizens and used as furniture in Asia, Southeast Asia and Africa. I’ve been in airports with pigs, goats and chickens running loose. I have had to go through military checkpoints, wondering if a trigger happy soldier might just mow us down with his automatic rifle. I have seen an AK put up against someone’s head and was praying the thing didn’t go off. I have seen people brutalized because they did not back their car up fast enough from an intersection to let us by. I was almost kidnapped in Malaysia. I had to fight my way out of two bars in China. I have been to places where twenty year old women would let me do anything I wanted to them for a chance to come to the U.S. I didn’t, but I could have. I have seen men work their asses off for pay that a hamburger flipper here would laugh at. And you know where I thank God I live? Do you know where I kiss the ground? It’s here, Mr. and Mrs. Liberal. For no matter how bad and ugly and repulsive you think the USA is, there is NO place in the world better to be. You need to thank whatever god you pray to that this is where you live, and then take your liberalistic crap and throw it away. Drop on your knees and be grateful for where you were born and live, people. Or else go out and see for yourself. Then come back and tell me how sorry this country is. Nuff said.
