I Hate To Say It

 but, america just isn't my place. I know everyone says "Well there is no better place than America." Well for some people that's true but honestly america just isn't my place. I hate it where people have to divide themselves into two political groups that can't compromise or listen, or how one guy on TV talking about how dumb liberals are make so much money. I want to move somewhere peaceful where other cultures are not only tolerated but also shared and expressed without people ridiculeing them (even behind their backs.) I'm also feeling pressured to always be the best, since this is the greatest country in the world and all. So we have to be the absolute best better than communist countries like France. Sine I don't want to go on forever i'm just gonna say one last thing.  


Patriotism is the belief that one's nation is superior to all others due to the fact that they were born in it.

Oh, the typical "love it or leave" crap being spewed by die-hard Americans. Rather than asking that they could see if Marius's post has any validity, and then see how they apply that validity into making American better. Frankly, this is one of the main factors which makes me tired of being an American, "The love it or leave it" crap.

Wow I am so glad that this got so much more attention than anyone else's story. I didn't say I hate america, I'm just tired of being in one country. I have wanderlust. I would leave and see and experience the world, but I'm 15.

All I can say is that if you don't like it here..maybe you should move on and go back to your own country!

yea Its pretty cool here, just I wanna move around see the world, and not get stuck here. Like the fate of so many.

I wasn't born here and do have some sense of pride for this nation. I will admit I don't give one amount of care to what the government is doing as it is evident there is nothing I alone could do to change it or make it better. Not alone anyway...<br />
I've been blessed to have called other nations home for various times in my life and quite frankly the US has given me the most diversity of people to get to know, despite the rat race to be superior. I have felt that living here has made me humble and not so quick to take everything for granted. I don't want you to feel like I am condemning you for feeling as you do. If anything I can only hope you find something about the US that has been a blessing and not a disadvantage to you if at all.

It's not America who's at fault..it's those that are supposed to be the great leaders of America!
