1) supported dictators (Chile, Pakistan, Greece).
2) steals land and culture from countries (Kossovo from Serbia, Macedonia from Greece).
3) applies double standards. Cyprus has been invaded and occupied by Turkey, but the USA is not interested. But USA is interested in Georgia.
4) CIA sold drugs to fund illegal wars.
5) started or participated in all major wars in the last 50 centuries.
6) it's the only country that used nuclear weapons.
8) Disregard for international laws. USA does not recognize the international court.
9) a high dosh of amoralism comes from USA. Extreme capitalism creates poor people. Money is God, thanks to USA.
The list is actually very big. I am just tired now, perhaps tomorrow I can fill it with more facts.

People hate the USA because it is assumed that the USA can do whatever it wants to do but it is only doing what it wants to do out of sheer national interest and not using it's power to solve everyone's problems.

I've spoken to MANY Europeans who think that all Americans are gun toting war lovers who sit on their butts rich in Texas gold.

Gee, here's a quick reply to the OP's question. I am sick of paying to make war on other countries who have not done anything to us. I would like my government to spend some of that money here at home on people I care about, say, my neighbors or the elderly.Gee, I guess I got carried away, and I've only just gotten started.

I've read a lot of the posts to those who replied and expressed why they hate america. And this post is directed at them:
All you who hate the USA can just go choke yourselves. The reason you all hate the USA is because we are the pinnacle of the current civilization on this planet. We are the top of the food chain in regards to geo-politics, geo-economics, private research & development, business enterprise and military might. Any person or organization that rises to the top is always attacked from all sides. Look at one of the USA's most successful company's - Microsoft. The largest and most profitable corporation in the world, the creator of the most utilized operating system for personal computers on the planet. And then there is Intel, AMD, Apple, McDonalds, Boeing, Lockheed, DARPA. We come up with the best gizmos because the USA generates the best and attracts the best. And we're charitable too. The USA provides billions of dollars per year to developing nations and millions of tons of food, technology support, military support, disaster relief all around the planet.
And this is the thanks we get. Knotheads who hate us. You all hate the USA because we strive to be the best, because we are the best and we produce the best and because the best from other countries come here to be the best because they are stifled by the constraints of the homeland governments. You're all jealous and sore losers.
Well I hate you. And know this; if the USA is attacked we will retaliate, no matter who is in office; and then the end of your world will be on you. If we are taken down then we will take all of you, who hate the USA, with us. Nothing can save you from a united people. We will put aside our differences (temporarily) if attacked and destroy any nation that even looks like it was involved.
