Sorry, I don't really come from Alabama - but from UK and now, via a few other European countries, Austria. I've never seen such a load of rubbish in my life as the introduction to your website. You really think everyone else in the world wants to come to the States? You have nothing that is not available elsewhere - except a political system that is funded by favours. No European country (even Italy!) has such a system where big business has such a hold. You live the American Dream - but it really is a dream. In Europe healthcare is cheaper, equality is more genuine, the poor are looked after better ... I just wonder where on earth you have the evidence to make your claims. I would go so far as to conjecture that the USA is the most disliked country in the world because of their foreign policies and covert colonisation through globalisation. People throughout the world have the right to live their lives, follow their religions and have the political systems they chose. Wake up.
