Sources of U.S. accomplishment

I am pretending that I am a person from another country who will do about anything to be able to live in the United States of America and become a citizen. I have studied the history of the U.S. and have learned of her greatness and progress despite things that at times were not done justly.

One thing that really stood out in my studies was that the U.S. accomplished its greatness under the influence of Christianity. If I ever get to the U.S. I am not going to try to change that influence. I will practice my religion and not make a wave and hang on for the ride.

By diverse I mean apartments for all income levels and condos in the $125,000 to $225,000 range along with double bike lanes and green areas for dog walking, sitting.

It will attract all types of business, though I agree we should encourage local and hip corporates to keep it eclectic. Only until folks can live like true urbanites will we have a healthy downtown.
