What does America mean to you?

  1. Since we have a lot of politically charged feelings about this, I'm curious what everyone here thinks of when they hear the words "America" and "American."

    Are you happy with the current state of our country? Do you feel that things are better or worse today than in our past?

    Hey Cohiba!

    Nice to hear from someone who knows how brutal the alternatives can be. BTW: I think it's BS that Castro is still in operation. Hope we take THAT prick down too.

  6. Opportunity. Personal freedom. Everyday I am greatful for that.
     
  7. I voted option 3, not an American and feel positive about America.

    Though I'm not an American, I have lived there and I think it is fantastic. Sure, it's got its problems -- like every other country -- but the good, in my book, far outweighs the bad.

    When I think of America, I think of it as the cornerstone, advancer and protector of values of progress, success, self-betterment, reward for effort, creativity, service, personal responsibility and forward lookingness and, (for the most part -- given its unfortunate history) human rights. Unfortunately, I am also often rreminded of the liberal element there that doesn't share and seeks to undermine many of those values.

    America is the land of opportunity.
    America is a beautiful and vast land.
    America is the land of the free.
    We are a nation of immigrants.
    America is a melting pot of cultures.
    No wonder everyone wants to come here.:)
