84. I'm British and have lived in the US for 36 years
I have never become an American citizen because I never wanted to. I have more than enough of this country and my husband and I have decided to move to the UK where there is a decent caring society. Both of our sons are there now and don't want to live in this country, even though they were born and raised here. Good God this is not an easy thing to do. My husband's family have been here since the 1630's and the ranch we own includes the land his grandfather homesteaded 120 years ago.
We had so much hope for Obama and then this health care deal is awful. I always thought thing's were getting better but they are not.
I also hate to see the begging jars in the stores...people begging for money to save the life of a sick loved one, how pathetic. How third world.
