America Is My Favorite Country

America Is My Favorite Country

Wyatt FeatureAmerica is my favorite country. There are so many wonderful things about America that make it my favorite country.

One reason America is my favorite country is because you can pick your profession. In America you can pick any job you want. If you want to be an electrician you can go to college and become an electrician.

In some countries you are born into a job, and that means you have to do the job your family does.

Another reason America is my favorite country is because you have the freedom to travel. You can go anywhere you want. If you wanted to drive to Florida you could drive to Florida. In some countries you have to get permission to travel.

The last reason America is my favorite country is because you can vote. When you are 18 you can vote for the president, the mayor, and other elected positions as well.

In other countries you can’t vote, and if you talk bad about political leaders you could be thrown in jail.

America is a great country and I am very happy I live here.
