A to Z of what's right with America
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) Ah, America. Land of the free. Home of the brave. Baseball and apple pie. It's all so irresistibly attractive that it's begging for a list of 26 awesome things about America.
So I asked the NaturalNews Facebook team to come up with an A-to-Z list of what's right with America. You'll find the complete list below.
In case you're feeling more pessimistic, by the way, we've also published an A-to-Z of what's wrong with America. You can find that list at: http://www.naturalnews.com/027493_America_A-...
A to Z of what's right with America - The listA is for Alternative medicine - Although the Associated Press hasn't figured it out yet, alternative medicine is cheaper, safer and more effective than pharmaceuticals and surgery.
B is for Breastfeeding - Because the best milk is mother's milk.
C is for the Constitution - Without it, this website wouldn't even exist and free speech would be stifled.
D is for Democracy - Despite all its shortcomings, Democracy is still the best form of government the world has come up with.
E is for Education - Although it's not perfect, we still have some outstanding schools and teachers teaching our nation's youth some important skills and knowledge.

G is for home Gardening - Turn your lawn into a garden and you'll have your own food supply!
H is for Herbs - The best medicine, made by Mother Nature.
I is for Internet - The last medium of freedom. Without it, we'd all still be plugged into the Matrix.
J is for Juicing - Because drinking raw, living vegetable juices is perhaps the single best thing you can do for your own health.
K is for Kayaking- And all the other stuff you can do in the great outdoors across America's amazing national and state parks.
L is for Liberty - While we still have some left, it might be a good idea to protect it.

N is for Nutritional supplements - Even though the FDA has tried to destroy the industry, you can still find an amazing assortment of nutritional supplements across the USA.
O is for Organics - Thank God we have chemical-free foods and personal care products available -- and an organization working to protect them (www.OrganicConsumers.org).

U is for YOU! - YOU are what's right with America. Keep up the great efforts. U ROCK!
V is for Voting - Although it isn't perfect, it's still the best way we have going for people to exercise some control over the laws of the land.
