Oh, how proud I am to live in the greatest country in the world.
When I think about it, no other country has the independence, freedom, and opportunity to become whoever you want to be like America citizens do. People always talk about how much they’d love to live in a country but honestly, I never could. Even in other well-developed countries like Great Britain, France, and Germany they don’t have the same freedoms and opportunties that Americans do. But I feel like people take that for granted.
People constantly take what they have and want something better. But honestly, you aren’t going to get what you have here anywhere else. This may be a really cheesy, over-the-top post, but I honestly am so proud to call myself an American. And a Hoosier. I love the great state of Indiana as well.
My patriotic love for this country/state probably explains my active political life.
Although I’m only 18, I’ve voted in every election-primary and main. That’s my life goal though..to vote in every election that’s held. Primary, midterm, real election it all. I cherish the fact that I’m granted the right to vote, and I’m going to vote.
In this past election of 2012, I took voting very seriously. I printed off a sheet containing every person running for every office whom I’d be voting for. Then, I preceded to look up each candidate and deliberate who I’d vote for. Now, I don’t care who you vote for or how you come to that decision, but I firmly believe it’s so important to vote. And don’t get me wrong, I’m a very strong advocate for my party (I won’t say, but from looking at my posts you can probably figure out).
So I make sure to always keep up on my political and govermental news, always remain unbias, keep an open mind to members of the opposite party (I don’t always vote straight ticket), and to never give up on this great country.
Anyway, the main point of this post is really to ramble on and on about how much I love America and how much of a devout citizen I am. But I really think that everyone, at one point or another, should take a step back and realize how truly fortunate we are. We have the freedom to vote for whoever we want. That’s an amazing gift.
