    Are you PROUD to be an American?

    Like it says.

    I am proud to be a citizen of the USA. We have a great country. The "american dream" is still very much alive. We call it the american dream but it is really a dream here in the USA. Canadians, south americans are all americans. We here in the usa seem to think only us citizens are americans. All of the americas are truly americans. Our freedoms here in the usa were not free. Let us fight for the the continuance of the "american dream" and hope this forever fight will not be in terms of human life being destroyed. I am sure other countries have pride in their homeland and rightfully so. But I love this country.

    I'm Proud To Be An American....

    Yes, proud of the past, present, & hopefully future, we have always come to the aid of people (even so-called enemies) around the world w/catastrophes, proud of our communities for helping out, giving their all, their monies to help less fortunate, some problems, sure, but people aren't trying to leave here to sneak into Mexico or Canada.........OR any other country in the world........God Bless America!!

    Yes, even in this current state of FUBAR, I am proud to be an American.
    As a woman, I have the freedom to be who I want to be, dress the way I want to dress and speak my mind without fear of retribution.
    I'm thankful that I can still speak of my LORD and savior Jesus Christ without fear of arrest and worship Him openly.
    This may change in the not so distant future, but for now I am proud and thankful to be an American.

    Please show me where any serious person has suggested that you shouldn't be able to worship in your own way, in your own time, in your own place, as long as it doesn't affect other people.

    In fact, you can worship in other people's places. You can stand out on the street corner and pray all day long.

    Again, show me where any serious person (i.e. someone with any power to actually enact such a change) has suggested you should be able to do otherwise.

    Thumbs up My decision

    I didn't choose when and where to be born. It wasn't up to me but I believe in miracles. God knows what he's doing.
    Believe it or not, I've been an American citizen since 2004. I am proud of the decision I've made a few years ago. I was my decision.

    Let's call a spade a spade here - You said something that absolutely lacked merit. Run4it called you on it. You used the old "you bothering me again?" retort.

    Most people see through you; only a handful bother mentioning it.

    Do you still call yourself proud because of last comments?
