I view the Moon landings as one of the greatest scientific accomplishments in Human history and it gives me great pride to say that it is my country, my home, that is responsible for such a remarkable endevour. Our recent involvement in the conflicts in the Middle East is morally questionable. It works for Vladimir Putin. Many sought to buy American as a way of displaying their patriotism - and a way to prove how proud they were to be an American. Every human being is infinitely more complex than just the few characteristics a bunch of people threw together and called a name.
Are they judging or critical? Another way we can express our individualism is throught the press. Good to see another brainwashed American believing everything they are told. I just do not understand why being randomly born in one country would make me hate the people that are born in any other country. Less than half of all Americans 42 percent say they are proud of the U. The spring offensive that you bring up did not end up destroying the German army or even cripple it.

But alas now you are resorting to lying and making stuff up to prove a non-existent point that is untenable by now. Since we just recognized the 5th Anniversary of 9-11, many Americans were reminded of the nationalistic pride they felt deep inside for their country that emerged from the ashes of that horrible tragedy. Religions have been compared and judged as far back before America was even discovered. The number of veteran men under age 55 is noticeably lower, by the way, even though patriotism is alive and well and the U.
Even if you have all those characteristics, they could not possibly be the only characteristics you have, because you'd be like a statue in a wax museum. Remember that the bigoted people who state their opinions the loudest might attract the most attention, but that doesn't mean their beliefs are reflective of everyone else. Fortunately, that little girl had zero clue what Trump was asking; her belief in Santa remained intact. Many others still wish they could live in the U. It works both ways, too, friend.
What's 50, or even 400 years in that? S, calling them a race of mongrels and declaring war almost as an afterthought, something the U. Here are all… Racists are everywhere in the world no matter what, one of them is even a president. Mueller Will Finally Wrap Things Up Donald Trump has been under investigation pretty much since he took office. In the beginning, when the English ruled most of the colonies, there was no free enterprise system.

He even admitted to shooting at them, but denied being responsible for their deaths. I've never heard anyone describe their nationality as a Jewish-American, Catholic-American, Baptist-American, Lutheran-American, etc.
And what about American Idol? Last I checked taking pot-shots at federal agents or anyone for that matter is still enough to land you some major time in prison. The freedoms our soldiers have fought for, including voting, are still just as important today as it was many years ago. Not to mention the billions of dollars in pretty damn close to interest free loans. The campaign with those newly arrived veterans started 3 months before the negotiations started and with them still getting their asses handed to them all the way through the negotiations, the British saw the writing on the wall. Colonialism and imperialism did not start with America.
The British army was not defeated in america in fact almost every single battle was won by the British army and it was only because of French and Spanish involvement that you won any battles. They were deserters they left the royal navy and merchant ships at a time when it was critical that the navy be as powerful as possible in order to protect Britain from invasion. The terrain was massively in the favor of the american forces and they also had artillery in place and were defending which is a huge advantage. We are allowed to choose our leaders based on who they are as a person, not because of what family they were born into.

Lived experience is very important to all of this discussion on identity. I pray that I will never take my American heritage and citizenship so for granted that I will be silent when she does wrong. Consider the plight of your people. I am proud to be an American because in America we have the freedom of speech. Like other immigrants, Asians come here in order to seek a better life and experience civil liberties. Our armed forces have a proud history and they shouldn't be used to score cheap political points. I am very thankful for every person that has served in the military or presently is serving.
Thanks for coming out though. Every night I am able to thank the god of my choice for being able to go to sleep with a full stomach under a well-built shelter with peace of mind. I am an American citizen because I grew up in America and have lived in it for my entire life. Being an American abroad is like constantly having to be the sole mouthpiece, cheerleader, representative and sponsor of our country of nearly people. To do that would be an insult to our parents and ancestors.
