Regarding Neil Schloessers letter “ For whom and when was America ever great ?”

It’s hard to know where to began to address his America sucks diatribe.

Maybe his letter should be read by the millions of refugees and emigrants waiting in line all over the world to legally move here. Or maybe his letter should be read by the thousands of people pouring over the southern border every month to enter America to live. They apparently don’t know what a horrible country we are.

Was America ever great? Was any country ever great? No, of course not. Having said that I will compare the good America has offered the world against any other country in history.

Shall we now make a list of all the other countries of the world and what they have in their past. Most of the emigrants and refugees that came here in the last 200 years escaped countries with histories that make America history look great in comparison.

Hedman writes, "For those who are paying attention, the betrayal of our legacy by the former president is on full display.

Jorgensen writes, "If God created a person with a particular sexual orientation, how can another person assume that this was not an act of God?"
