Exclamation What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right

I am posting this for those that feel that third world living conditions aren't really all that bad and take American standards of living and freedoms for granted.

That was interesting. I bet 22 trillion to one that not a single leftist here will proclaim her story to be true.


To them, America is bad, evil, and no good.


That must be why foreign people keep trying to get their asses here, legally and illegally.

Correct Manitou... what they'll do instead of reading the article is smear America Thinker as an extreme right wing propaganda site. Granted, they tend to promote conservatism and conservative values... but this is a first hand account of a woman who actually witnessed and lived in these conditions in Senegal as a Peace Corp worker.

The word "Thinker" most likely will scare most of them off. Thinking is the antithesis of Progressives whereas their values are formed by how they feel about issues.

Are we sure she was in Senegal or San Francisco? They seem to have a lot in common.
