That is very easy to say, but where does it stop? A person's homeland takes away certain rights and makes changes. That person leaves for another country that ends up doing the same, and so on and so forth. Where does it stop? Why should we leave our countries because they change? This country (USA) has been changing drastically for a while now. Public sentiments are changing. People are fogetting the past and what this country was founded on. I don't like it, but I am not running away. Instead, I stay and try to change things. I support organizations that belive as I do. I let congress know when I disagree with the way things are being done. You can't just cast a vote and say you did your part, and run away when things don't work out.



What's the point of living in a country you don't like.... I believe life is short... we need to make the most out of it and living in a place where you are not happy is very idiotic. I don't want to watch myself miserable my whole life. anyway we have our own forms of happiness, and if you want change then go make a change. It's your life.

I suppose it depends on why you don't like the country. If it is cultural, or environmental, I can understand moving. If it is economical I can understand moving. If it is governmental, then it depends. I enjoy freedoms and rights in this country that would be impossible or difficult to enjoy in most other countries. Some of those rights and freedoms are under attack, and may one day be taken away. Also, what is morally acceptable in this country is changing. What should I do? Even if I found another country that I could move to that would allow me to enjoy the same freedoms, what guarantee is there that it won't change as well? I’ve seen these rights taken away from the citizens of other countries. Besides, I have family, and heritage here. I am proud to have been born in my country. I love my country. Even if I come to hate what it has become, I love it enough to make the effort to change it back. In short, there is nowhere for me to move. There are other nations on this planet that I like, but I cannot imagine leaving this one to live in any of them.

Not long ago, the founding fathers of this country did move because they did not like the country they lived in. They formed colonies here and tried to find happiness. They found they were unhappy and decided to effect change. Their actions started peacefully, but quickly became less so. Until, a revolution started. At the end of that revolution, they created the country that they wanted to live in, a country that I am proud to be from. Of course this is significantly oversimplified, but I believe it makes my point. There was only so far that they could go before they had to stand their ground.

There are many great changes that have come to this country because people stood up and did something about it. There are also many terrible changes that have happened as well. Change is a part of life. The current administration’s theme is change. It is change that I do not agree with. I hope and pray that the next administration and congress bring about the change that I desire. Whether they do or not, I will continue to do what I can to bring that change, or rather return to the values and beliefs this nation was built on. Simply moving because I am unhappy will not solve anything; it will only make it worse.

Don’t get me wrong. As stated before, I do believe in moving for certain reasons. I am strongly considering moving to another state. I do love Texas, but it is very hot and humid here. Summer is quite uncomfortable, and fall is not as pretty as other parts of the nation. My wife used to live in Alabama, and we are considering moving there. It is mountainous, the leaves actually change color in the fall, summer is comfortable, most people are politically in line with what I believe, and it is not so far that I can’t still visit my family.

So, I do agree that moving to be happy is important, but I believe that stating “If you don’t like it leave,” does not take all conditions into consideration.
