1. You have food on the table
In socialist Venezuela, the monthly minimum wage salary including food stamps is 200,021 bolivares ($45) a month. In March, it was reported that a group of basic grocery items cost 772,614 bolivares, which would be almost four times the monthly minimum wage. Thank you, capitalism.
2. You don’t live in a communist country
You’re internet searches aren’t being monitored like in China where you would need to use a third party platform to even send messages to other individuals. Thankfully, you live in a country that prides itself on the First Amendment and the other fundamental rights that the Constitution grants it’s citizens.
3. Speaking of the First Amendment, the right to have a civilized debate
It would suck to live in a place where you were so scared of the leader that you couldn’t speak out against them, like in North Korea. Exercise your right to have a civilized debate at your Friendsgiving or your Thanksgiving around family. Although, you may want to use a talking stick to make sure everyone gets their turn, but that’s just my suggestion.
The men and women in uniform who have taken the oath to defend the United States Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Without their sacrifice, you wouldn’t have the ability to sit around the dinner table with your family and enjoy the life you live everyday.
5. The fact that you’re alive and your parents didn’t decide to abort you
Seriously, whether you are pro-choice or pro-life, it’s important to turn to your mother and thank her. Thank her for not falling into the left-wing thinking that children are a burden and therefore need to be aborted because otherwise women won’t have a successful life, much less a successful career.
6. Police Officers
While these men and women in blue are working during the night, you’re enjoying a nice Thanksgiving dinner with your family. Be thankful for those who can’t be with their family tonight to make sure that you’re safe with yours.
7. You live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
