    "God is on our side "

    How do you know , did God tell you this?

    "Our currency means something "

    I agrre but so does the English pound, the Euro , Cyprus pound
    ect.

    "Our language (American English) is the most concise "

    So does Zulu so what.

    "We invented most everything of any value in the world today"

    Ok i agree americans invented many things in recent times .Thats
    very good but also Russian's, Germans, British etc. invented many things also . America is the center of the world today and will be for maybe another 50 years .The point is that yes america invented a lot but so did other countries at different times.

    "Our women are the most beautiful in the world"

    Your opinion .
    my opinion is that Lebanese Women are the most beautiful.
    Another's is that German Women are most beautiful.
    its a matter of taste .

    "Our food is better than anywhere else in the world. "

    Big Macs and chips?

    "Our country is cleaner than anywhere else"
    I guess you never been in Switserland or Singapore

    "I just wish that ethnic persons who come to America or who are born in America, wanted to be Americans. They should divest themselves of the culture they left and the language they left and _become_ Americans"

    How do you define american?
    Red skin indians? After all they were the first there.
    The great thing about America is its Diversity .America does,t have one calture.

    "Even despite our generosity and kindness, the middle-easterners want to harm us. And yet, we feed them, we clothe them, we teach them how to bathe. We education them, we quash evil in their midst. We are the red cross organization for the world."

    Now this is stupid, seriously its Sad.

    "Unlike most other nations and peoples, American's bathe regularly, brush their teeth, and generally make themselves useful and productive. "

    Seriously you are sad.


    ------
    Its ok to be patriotic but to actually thing that you are better than everyone else is stupid. Natianalism destroyes. If we don't learn to apreciate everybodies difference and most importanly learn from each other then we can only go backword.

    I love america. I have been all around the globe but I like the US first (japan is second). This thread is very sad though seemingly populated by kids who never went outside of there own country once in there life. Every country is different, each having there good and bad parts of it. Everyone should have a real reason for saying why they don't like the country of america. Saying I don't like some of there policies isn't enough, look at your own country I'm sure their is some policies that it has that you don't like. Basing your judgements on only a few people you meet isn't enough. I have met many canadians who are rude, obnoxious and just plain morons (and other countries too). Do I dislike canada for it? No I love canada the same. A person who has a bad personality does not have it because of their citizenship it is because of them. People who can't discern that are children. And just to set the record straight asians have the most beautiful women

    And to think once upone a time I had respect for the individual posting as *. I still respect your skill as a programmer but I'm afraid that in a single blurb, you've shown that you dont rank very high as a human being.

    I still maintain that we should all be taking a page (and I mean a page) from DAs old sig. Something about peace and thymble or something (whatever that means). And hassafraggin, er... I dont know. But peace was involved in some way and thats the important part.

    Hate to step through when someone says something like "you know who you are"

    But...

    This issue has been so... ineffectively talked about and with such an high pitch at times, that I figure we just let it die with that gem the asterisk guy presented us with.

    Why I like america

    1. Nearly everyone goes to school no matter how they do.
    2. Every last view is held on every last subject.
    3. We proved that a democratic republic works.
    4. We are made up of people from all over the world.
    5. Some of the finist leaders of the 20th century are american or part american.
    6. We had a civil war instead of just breaking apeart.
    7. We have either lost or tied all are wars. (technicly)
    8. We donate huge sums to charity as well as medical and other scientific projects.
    9. We protect countires that Britan and France orginaly said they would.
    10. We are the main force in every UN or Nato mission.

    1. Lots of public land and streams
    2. Hunting and fishing legal and encouraged.
    3. Freedom to travel in and out of the country (Cuba being a stupid exception). Yes, other countries have this freedom, but plenty don't.
    4. The Bill of Rights (1st ten amendments to the Constitution), even though they are often under various assaults.
    5. Borders Canada, which is a nice and friendly country. They may not be so pleased
    6. Diversity of cultures. Sometimes a flashpoint, but overall a good thing.
    7. Freedom to succeed financially if ready to work hard. Sometimes if you don't.
    8. Decent educational system, especially at the University level. Had a Japanese roomate once who said the lower grades were really hard, but the universities were a joke, so they came here for college.
    9. Decent health system. Has definite problems, but most people can get most care when they need it. Many Canadians pay extra to come here and avoid the wait in their more egalitarian system.
    10. The best music. There's some good music overseas, and plenty of crap here, but hey, look at France. Has any good music come out of there since Django Reinhardt?
    11. Lack of class divisions. Sure, there are racial and economic divides, same as every non homogeneous country, but it's not based on who your ancestors are.
    12. We try to distinguish right from wrong, and not claim it's all a gray kind of spectrum. We have blind spots, are wrong sometimes, and sometimes choose what we really know is wrong. But we make the effort to distinguish, and not treat every group or individual claim or action as pretty much equivalent. There is a gray area, but there's also right and wrong, and sometimes you have to take a stand. Although far from perfect, the US does that.

    One of the main reasons, or rather the primary reason why I decided to stay away from the GD forum for a while is stupid ignorant American haters........for some unknown reason I decided to look at the GD forum...(damn it), I usually just go to the programming forums........you people that have nothing else better to do than to bash other countries make me sick. I think that the mods need to take a step to stop all this country bashing............Now I am going to be angry for the a while (I only read some posts) Thankfully didn't read the whole thread.

    *sigh*

    Some Americans try so hard to make us look bad.

    For those of you that are from other countries, please try to have some compassion and realize we do not all fit that bill. Not everybody here is a complete idiot.

    Like everywhere, we have our good and bad... present and history.

    Que sera sera...

    One world nation... we should all be spending Euros. My Finnish brother-in-law brought some from Finland on his visit to Hawaii over the next few weeks. They are pretty cool.

    Yeah, you know, the title of this thread is "A Reason To Like America". There are various reasons to dislike America, and several threads to express that.
    But this thread says "A Reason to Like America". Use the other threads to discuss what you don't like about America, or start one of your own, if you have something new to say.
    The US isn't perfect, but it's not Satan either. It's just big. It's good and bad qualities get magnified.
    If you're proud of your country, great. If bunches of your countrymen and women are trying to get into the US, legally or illegally, think about why.

    I'm sorry you feel this way, there are always going to be people that seem to have no other reason for existing then to bash anything and everything without reason. They are like pop-ups. Annoying yes, worth anything no.
