My opinion
If it is so bad, why are you still here? Just asking, because there is freedom to leave. Last I checked the borders were still open and you are free to cross out of the US if you want.

I don't think there's isn't one single person on this Earth who never heard about the U.S., or don't know something about it.

What do you like about the U.S. the most? Vote & Discuss!
Good Lord, where do I begin here?

1. Our founding documents, pioneered similar movements across the globe.
2. Diversity in climate, people and nature. You literally have every kind of natural feature within our borders, and Canada has cool stuff too.
3. The people are great. We're not perfect, but I like to think that Americans are overall a good people.
4. The opportunity. This country's been good to me and my family since we immigrated here a hundred fifty years ago from Ireland.

Let's see another nation land humans on the moon, and maybe then we'll talk. Even if it's 50 years after the fact. ;-)

I think Arnold Schwarzenegger in this article says it best...its the Land of Opportunity...

Coming to America - Magazine - The Atlantic

"I began dreaming of coming to America when I was 10 years old, because it has no rival as a Land of Opportunity. For that to remain the case, our politics need to match the generosity and common sense of the American people. Then we really will be that city upon a hill that John Winthrop and our Founders imagined."

I appreciate the fact that, according to the Constitution, we, the people, are in charge, not the government. Let's hope it stays that way.

I like how we have so much International Airports.

I voted "Other." I have traveled to nearly 40 foreign countries on five continents. In my view, what unites us and what I like the most is that by and large, we are a very optimistic people. Even during our worst times (911, current recession) we retain a "glass half full" perspective.

I one time heard a cultural academic describe the difference between an American and Brit. Upon seeing a Rolls Royce drive by, each would tend to make the following statements:
>From the American: "One day I'll drive a car like that."
>From the Brit: "One day, he'll be walking like me."

I like that about us.
