America is a wonderful country to live in, however, it has its advantages and disadvantages. The United States continues to be one of the greatest countries in the world because of people like myself and others from many different countries who gave up their livelihood to become a US citizen by running after the American dream. There are so many quotes about America that had been said by different Presidents. I’d love to express my opinion about some of them.
