Now that was very broad-minded of you. Sincerely. Rarely will a person stop and and think, “Maybe I had it all wrong,”, much less publicaly admit it.
:beerchug: back atcha, sister!
It’s hard for those of us who grew up in a country where we took so much pride in the fact that people risked their very lives to get to for the promise of a better life. I’ve ‘kissed the ground I’ve walked on’ many times just for the blessing of having been born in the greatest country in the world!
So you gotta know that it breaks my heart to admit this isn’t the country we grew up in: the one where to ALL people it meant, "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!"
As, “Hope breeds eternal”, I don’t know that I’ll ever throw in the towel, but it’s a no wonder that many true patriots are hunting more fertile ground to live out the lives they thought they could live here.
—But I think that’s far removed from Tina Turner’s motives. Her move strikes me more as moving toward than away. A place where her sweetheart is, whatever. I admire her for her sincerity. She took the time and effort to learn Switzerland’s constitution, take the tests, and commit herself to it; even though Switzerland and the U.S. allow dual citizenship.
Heaven knows we never looked at people coming here as traitors to their countries.
