    Post some of the reasons that you are proud of being an American, or what you feel has been some of the good we have done.

    There you go, proving that Americans only think about themselves.
    What about all the other countries in the world and what they've done?

    Bucharest developed something everyone has in one form or another.

    Oh, wait...hmm.icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I'm not saying America (US) is the ONLY country in the world to have done anything to advance civilization....just some of the biggest things!

    This thread was for people to post WHY they are happy and maybe even proud of the USA.

    Make your own thread, Andy!

    Oh and PS: No one is tying tires together in a makeshift raft and sailing it TO Cuba, Canada or even UK!

    OP: good thread.

    While we have plenty of problems, consider much of the technology used around the world was designed and developed in the US. Computers and software are major examples.

    Entertainment from the US - Movies, TV shows, music from the US are very popular and influential around the world.

    People still from around the world would love to live in the US.

    It is a popular theme of the left-wing fringe to run down the country. Blah, blah, blah - "US is a fundamentally evil country, capitalism is corrupt, rigged." They exploit examples of people in dire straights to claim no one can get ahead without some privilege.

    One's place of birth is arbitrary.

    Some got lucky and were born in the US.

    Others got unlucky and were born in say, North Korea or Canada.

    The US, like any country, has good points and bad points.

    Good Points:

    1. Rights-based society.
    2. Ample natural resources and a large enough population to utilize them.
    3. Genetic and cultural diversity.

    Bad Points:

    1. Lacking in comprehensive healthcare and social programs thet contribute to generational poverty.
    2. History of oppressing unpopular social groups.
    3. The Kardashians.
