I didn't become an American by my own merit, nor am I proud of the actions of others. So, no. I'll get jumped on for this, but I truthfully am not nor do I even remotely comprehend the concept.

To me, America is such a unique mixture of cultures. Even the Mexicans bring a wonderful influence to our culture. I say America- LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT !!

I got to thinking I dont care anymore about North-South or EAST-WEST

WE ARE ALL AMERICANS! United under God!

I love this great country. Whether you're in the hills of TN or the Prairies of Texas or the Rocky Beaches of New England- Its America!

I love being an American. How about you??
How old are you?

Definitely. I always related to being an American first, and nothing really afterwards (state pride is nice but also somewhat silly to me).

Yet I don't see either of you leaving America. Funny how that works.

This place is by far the best. God bless the good ol' USA.

I'm proud to be a citizen of the world. I always get a kick out of TV news when some tragedy occurs overseas and they report how many Americans were affected.

Nowhere did I say that I didn't like America. And the day when they stop taking money out of my checks is the you can tell me to leave, thanks.

What makes living in America much less pleasurable is obnoxious chest thumpers who think that if you don't spend every hour of the day sodomizing yourself with a flag pole, you don't belong here.

I have a love/hate thing with being American. I'm glad that I live in America, but I'm not proud in how I(meaning my ancestors) got here.
