America has alot of growing to do b4 anyone can say we r the best becuase we r clearly not,,,,, most people are selfish pricks who only care about "LOOKING GOOD" in front of people we've lost right to even say we r a great country we just need to be REAL w/ oursevles


ps what ever happend to the GOLDEN RULE
TREAT OTHERS THE WAY U WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED


then why do you segrgate yourself by distinguishing that your afro-american... why not just say you're american.

i mean... i could say, i'm native/german/french/irish american, but why bother? i'm american. everything else is just colors.

And people stopped using the golden rule long time ago. Sadly.

I personally think morals and ethics need to be taught in elementary school, then maybe people would understand a few things about life.

And what to do when faced with those situations where a wrong choice could be made.

But, i'm just a single american, i don't make any difference.

But i still like to put my two cents in!

~going from memory here - so if it's not perfect, forgive me i had to memorize it in 5th grade.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator certain unalienable rights, among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness. Governments are instituted among men, derviing their just powers, from teh consent of the governed, that if any form should become unjust, it is the RIGHT of the people to alter or abolish it.

That's a portion of the pre-amble to the declaration of independence... something that's worth fighting for..

I'm damned proud to be an American, knowing what all it's taken for my country to become what it is today. No, it's not perfect, but that's the job of the people to fix that. Not just the random congressmen but THE PEOPLE, you and me... we can do that with our vote and with our dollars.

The only way to start a change is to start with the only thing you CAN change... and that's yourself.


well said

its not really fair to stereotype everyone in a whole nation.........alot of the americans i've seen and met have seemed rather....unpleasent...but you can't base them all on that, its not fair

There was a thread about Asians and here comes the American thread .
I think they`re okay . I don`t know enough of them to say they`re admirable .
I can say something about Asians and Canadians but not Americans .
All I know about them is that they know close to nothing about Canada
and carry that ignorance with them , the president likes war , and ...
USA has great malls or so I`ve heard .

That`s where you`re wrong . Edit that to lessen the chances of unnecessary flaming .

People are people everywhere you go. There are good people, and there are bad people- thats a fact of life. I admire no man unless they earn my admiration. I will never admire a country as a whole because I dont believe that the the whole country really deserves my admiration- certain people might.

What changes are the way in which the people run themselves, what values they have. Basically what they have been taught to be right and wrong. All people are just like children in this sense- we're all impressionalble and we all (for the most part) run with the herd. You are what you have been taught.

actually everyone saying americans suck or americans are better than everyone else on this thread sucks i mean since when was there a race or group of people cooler than everyon else and to the people who think americans suck not all of us do probably a lot of people u see in the media more than actual americans (such as crazy famous people i.e britney spears or ur average racist redneck or a cowboy maybe ) for me i dont think anyones better than anyone else ive never even asked myself that question or maybe when it comes to indiviuals that i know and i know for a fact im cooler than them but then again its just my opinion of course. and then again when (maybe off topic) when u think of america do u think of white people. not black people or mexicans or anyone else living there

I'm an american .... the one thing you have to say for us is that we have self confidence...to a fault at times...but none the less it is an admirable trait...there are many other reasons to like/ hate us ...but that is my 2 cents for now
