I cannot believe this but I have met a few foreign immigrants that actually think that America is FREE.
They think that things should be free and that they should not have to pay.
It sounds too crazy to be true.
I was blown away.

Homeless people, people without health insurance, unemployment benefits are a joke, only 2 weeks of vacation a year, no paid maternity leave, it was like a Third World Country to me... Still kind of is, to be honest.
HUD (for "homeless people") food stamps (for people that can't feed their children) you have to EARN unemployment and 99 weeks of unemployment to TOO MUCH already, your vacation time depends on your job (the military gives 30 days a year) why should tax payers have to fund your maternity leave? Some jobs offer paid maternity leave, If you don't like the US, you know what you can do... :) Basically, it is not the American taxpayers job to make sure that you live a good life, it is your job. Go to college get a good job get everything you want for yourself or marry a good man/woman and stay at home with your children. I will not address the health insurance thing again.

Actually for those who are here illegally, and figure out how to obtain free government subsidies and housing, and somehow live "under the radar" it IS literally a "free country!"
I especially find humor in the ones who say, after they accepting government subsidies (knowing is illegal to partake in) that the system took advantage of THEM.....
