My answer to What freedoms do Americans take for granted?
Answer by Ken Larson:
When one travels to other countries as I have and regularly counsels small businesses on several continents as a volunteer counselor in retirment with Micro Mentor, one realizes how lucky Americans are to have the following:
- a constitutional republic that mandates democratic practices
- a bill of rights
- a separation of powers
- and a rule of law that makes it all work.
When we take a moment and ask ourselves if we could succeed or have the opportunities we have anywhere else on the face of the earth we should realize we complain way too much.
