~~~The Fourth Of July Is Approaching.....~~~
This July 4th, 2019, the United States Of America will turn 243 years old! Even though America was discovered over 500 years ago, the actual country called America will only turn 243 years old.
The USA has the longest lasting Constitution ever to exist because we believe that every human being on this earth deserves to live in Freedom. We Americans will fight to the death to preserve that Freedom.
This Constitution lasts because our Forefathers designed it to be amended from time to time as the country goes through changes, good or bad. Is America perfect? No! But it is the free-est nation on earth and its citizens can pursue happiness and any way of life they choose.
My family ( on my father's side) moved to America in the year 1690 from Germany. We have a copy of the manifest of the ships passengers with Jakob Miller's name, along with his parents name. Jakob was my great-grandfather x's (times) 11 generations. He moved to Faulkner's Swamp, PA. Now known as the Port Of Philadelphia, PA. After 15 years there (1705 ad), his family moved to Turtle Creek, West Virginia. We still have land there owned by the Millers and a house that has been renovated many times over the years.
We have fought and died in every war that America has been involved in to this day.
Needless to say, I love this country! I love the good and the bad. We have proven to the world that we are a very generous people. If it wasn't for the USA, this world would be in a very bad condition.
I hope that all the people out there in every country gets the chance to come and visit America and stay a while. If you want to live here, just follow the correct procedures and you will be accepted. My wife works with people from all over the world and she loves them! They came here to find a better life and they did it right.
I love this country so much. We are the only country in the world where you can come and be an American! Not just a citizen, but a real, red blooded American! We are made up of all nationalities!
