There are some yahoos on here that keep putting down our country and why the world should stomp us out.
Well, I'm here to talk about why were are still here, and why we are an incredible country.
I'm not saying we are without our problems, but there are endless reasons why people would give their right arm to come here!

We are the land of free - try lighting a flag on fire somewhere else, or saying things about another leader, you might not see another day

We are prosperous - Money money money - lots of people come here for a more prosperous life. Many have said that bums in America are the richest bums in the world - Opportunity -

Diversity - Nowhere on earth can you walk in a city and see a more diverse crowd. Just go to Chicago or New York, you'll hear twenty languages in ten minutes!

Social equality - sure we still have our problems but it's nothing like the class systems in other places!

Our food - we pretty much serve everything, and it is delicious, maybe too delicious

We don't charge people to use our toilets - we are civilized like that!!!!

We are creators, other just copy

Americas landscape is as diverse as its people, beaches, mountains, deserts, plains, we have it all and it's breathtaking!

Captain America!

Ice - we are so cool we drink our drinks with lots and lots and lots of ice the way God meant drinks to be drunk. Warm soda and beer is of the devil!

American Movies, Music and culture - it is copied around the world, but you can never beat the original!

We are bully proof, Make fun of us all you want, thanks for the laugh!!!!!

We don't practice what we preach, but at least we're still "preaching" about freedom and rights and liberty.

Now if the anti-freedom authoritarians would just find something shiny to distract them, we might be able to get back to being all about the freedoms!

America is awesome because freedom.

It comes at a cost, and sometimes that cost is ugly. We can say that taxes aren't freedom, but I enjoy what some of the taxdollars pay for.
But mainly we are awesome because we are free.

Not all places are like that, or remotely close.
They try, but no one comes close.

Think how great it would be if federal and local government employees were not so corrupt. A good bit of the screwing we take is their work, one way or another.

Cool story...I think my biggest qualm with Americans though is that they seem to think other places in the world aren't like that while completely ignoring the large swaths of America that aren't like that.

There's a whole lot of empty miles of wasteland in america dotted with little poverty stricken towns that lack basic necessities like grocery stores, or schools, or well just about anything I would consider a town to have. They usually sure do have a lot of churches though. Then there's the stretches of highway in between dotted with billboards pleading with people not to kill themselves or smoke meth...

But nah....being in america means your life is automatically better than if you lived in any other country in the world.

Now if you'll excuse me...i've gotta get back to work and earn more money, before I head back through my city full of people from everywhere, maybe stop at the doctors for a free check up just for the # of it because I can, use the free toilet before i go, before heading home and ordering Hmmm dunno what kinda food I want tonight, the choices are pretty endless around here, while I burn a flag and create some # while I drink beer that isn't watered down piss and smoke some very legal weed.

When idiots say "America is evil", they are pidgeon-holing all of us... that is wrong.

Our government has certainly done a lot of d-bag things, there is no doubt about that... the majority of which the American people had no idea of, or the actions were sold to us under false pretenses.

The U.S. Government has been doing this crap for decades, and Americans, in general are getting fed up with it... (no pun intended) The "deep state", or "swamp" truly exists. The Trump presidency is a direct result of everyday Americans saying "enough is enough".

Don't lash out at the American people... lash out at the scumbags that criminally abuse the system.

Youre not the only country with freedom you know. And you didnt create everything good in this world, you guys copy culture just as much as everybody else. And also, our bums are deffinately richer than yours!!

But overall i agree, USA is a great country, with great problems, just like the rest of world.
The trollz in here, that keeps talking crap about america just needs to be ignored. We are all the same, just born different places with different opportunities.
You got a lot of opportunities over there, and are seen as a leader because of youre military might. The world is a mess right now, have been for some time. Some will allways blame the leaders when things go bad, they forget we are a team and we all are gonna play our part to make the world a better place to live. They think you guys are gonna save the whole world, and the rest of us just needs to sit back, take our feet up and wait for it to happen, and then gets angry when no one does their work for them.
Screw those guys! America is a great country, but like the rest of the world, their is allways room for improvement

Yeah I can get behind this.

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife
I thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
'Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
Where's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say
That I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'd gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

Yep. Most of that list applies to Canada too, but sadly, we do not have Captain America 😕

Stop calling this the land of the free. As long as our incarceration rate is what it is, saying such is just a sick joke. Our prisons are absurdly full, mostly with people charged for nonviolent crimes.

Captain Canada is a superhero created by CJON-DT (NTV) owner Geoff Stirling, his son Scott Stirling and Filipino artist Danny Bulanadi in the late 1970s. Captain Canada debuted in 1979 in the Captain Newfoundland comic strip published in the Newfoundland Herald (known then as The Sunday Herald) and later appeared in the Atlantis graphic novel, which featured covers by Boris Vallejo. Since his creation, he has become a mascot for NTV and has appeared in numerous promos for the station, the most recent being created by Vancouver based Borderless World Productions in 2010. Captain Canada has made many public appearances, including the annual Santa Claus Parade in St. John's, Newfoundland. There is a plaque in Arizona marking his first manifestation in the United States.[1] Captain Canada also appeared in the 1980 television movie Captain Newfoundland and the Tip of Atlantis, scenes of which were used in NTV promos during the 1990s.
