Why bother immigrating?

Let me start off by saying that i am an immigrant, because what I'm about to say is not PC at all. As a legal immigrant, i am completely against illegal immigration, having gone through the lengthy, expensive and at times humiliating process of coming to the states and becoming a resident. It's about the way men (still) treat their women - it goes beyond the cleaning, cooking, laundry, child care duties still being 100% a working woman's duties. It's about this pervasive disdain for the woman - she has to walk 3 steps behind, she has to have food ready, she has no say in any matter, she eats at a different table, after the men and the children, she has to be married off so she is a financial burden.

So I jut have to ask, because I see this so much, back at home and here as well: you guys left your country because it was so shitty, because "America is so much better" etc etc, and yet you are still doing things just as you did back in the old country, the very reason that made it so damn backwater. So yeah, why bother?? You are in the same mental space, same misery as back home, you feel that the American dream is a lie, when you should realize that change begins within you.

You want to experience the American dream? You are chasing it because you equate it with happiness - but since when is happiness a white picket fence and 2.5 children? I'm pretty sure happiness is freedom, truth, honesty, respect, not money and plasma TVs and a servant you get to have sex with anytime you wish. I mean even financially it makes sense - by allowing your wife to get a job, you are doubling your income. Isn't all that money worth getting off your ass and grabbing your own damn coffee guy?

Keep it real :)
