    I am, but that DOES NOT mean I'm blindly

    patriotic, and I don't think America is "the greatest fvkkin' nation on Earth!". I'm a human being first and foremost, and I appreciate it when foreigners don't lump me together with all Americans. I like my life here, but I've never been to another country, so I'm sorry to you...

    I'm not a fan of the current Progressive

    movement currently enveloping our country. In fact I hate it. The movement that tells me that I HAVE to side with Trayvon Martin/Michael Brown because I'm black or face the consequences. The movement that tells women that they HAVE to be feminists or face the consequences...

    I'm American. I don't see myself living here

    forever though and my boyfriend is looking at working overseas in a few years. I'd be more than happy to go with him. I always admire how people who are exposed to various cultures seem more intelligent, open minded, and well rounded. I want that for my future kids. I am also...

    At the time I was born,

    my parents were overseas and living in Europe. My father was in the military at that time. I had dual citizenship until I finally declared my American citizenship at age18. I currently live in the USA and in the state of California.

    I have no hope for this country.

    People say they want a government that represents the people? We have one. It's full of incompetent morons, just as everyday Americans like myself are incompetent morons. If I leave, America will have one less idiot. So **** patriotism, I'm moving to Canada. At least they have...

    I was born and lived with my parents in America

    until I was 18 years old. At that time, my parents moved to Europe because of my father's job. Today, I live in a town where the military is huge and they are well respected by the community for their service to this country. America is a great country and that is because of...

    We Used To Be A Proud Nation

    as most all other citizens here in this nation are. I do support our military forces in keeping us safe from others who want to hurt and even kill us because of our traditional beliefs.
