Freedom of speech
Its great to live in the United States and not worry about being thrown in prison for writing an article saying that Obama sucks. We can offer our opinions without living in fear and hiding like in many communist countries or dictatorships.
I would also like to clarify that living in China is not as bad as people may believe it is. People living their everyday lives will most likely not have their daily routines effected at all. The people go to work or start their own businesses, eat and drink merrily, buy property, rent apartments and so on. Foreigners would most likely only notice that certain popular websites are blocked such as Facebook, Blogspot, Twitter and Youtube are blocked. However, this can easily be bypassed through VPN service.
