99.99999% of these so called proud Americans have never done anything for America in real life. They don’t sacrifice. They don’t buy American if there is a cheaper alternative. They never served in the military. They are just losers making false claims on the internet. Kind of like trum. He’s never done anything for America. Every move,that scum bags makes is to enrich himself or his family. Either financially or to stroke his pitiful ego. a reply to: TinySickTears

I reserve pride for something that I've accomplished not for something I was born into.

I am, however, grateful and happy to be an American.

Don't really care if others are patriotic or not. It's a free country. If it's so awful for them they can vote to change it or leave, there's always options.

Although, I find people who never truly suffered often insufferable.

Will be lighting fireworks and enjoying BBQ on the 4th of July.

Whats wrong with being proud of your country, rather you served or not, sacrificed or not. Please, indulge me and tell me why you cant be proud of your country? Im very proud of my country, im ashamed of a lot of people in this country that take no pride in her, that talk down about how horrible this country is and wanting to destroy it and give complete control to the government (socialism) and not care about personal freedom and power to the people. Im ashamed this country is infected with this disease but i am very much proud of my country!

There are many reasons to be proud, ive read others give you details as to why and you refuse to "want" to know why. There is a difference in wanting to know certain things, and then just asking and ignoring any answer givin because you dont believe in your own country. Your not being open to anybodies answer unless it is trash talking this country. Your like talking to a wall.

I have already givin you answers and so has others. Why do people have to explain why they are proud of their country again? You should be proud at the fact you can question peoples patriotism for there country and live or not go to jail. Thats one reason you should be proud to be an American.

Proud...Pride, its a dynamic and not established as any one thing, for there are a variety of ways one can appeal to them.

Marked achievment on creating something, accomplishing something and being part of something.

I am proud to be an American because our country is capable of great achievements and great change. Everything from building entire industry from scratch and putting men and women to work to developing Nuclear weapons and advancing technology, Americans, despite some of our many internal differences, can come together to accomplish goals and feats.

I don't get offended, however I do get a bit saddened.

To those saying we are resting on the laurels of our forefathers, I say, take another look at yourself. Each generation benefits the next, for without those advances, we would not be here today. We can be proud and prideful of past accomplishments and continue to respect that by doing something about it yourself. It is up to us, who still believe, to keep pushing the positive values and beliefs of those great forefathers, towards the next generation.

I am a Nationalist and believe in American leadership and power.
