It's independence Day. What do you like about America?

I like the protections a defendant has in a trial e.g. the right to counsel, and the personal rights expressed in the Bill of Rights. You?

@Brandon9000,
I like that fact that there is a Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 and a Toyota truck parked in my garage.

@Brandon9000,
The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded Lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens,
Is running in your veins;
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies -
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

As a bunch of mutts, I think we are some of the most tolerant people on the planet. If I was in trouble somewhere in the world I would want to be rescued by Americans forces.

@Green Witch,
We are able to launch a huge missile into a menacing orbit that could get the attention of Mr Kim Jong Il. And, in this missile we are able to load up to 20 separately targeteable warheads, each with the destructive power of 2000 times the power of those that we dropped on Hiroshima.

With that capability already in hand (not having to test it)I think that lil Kimmy ought to thank his lucky stars that we are not as bat **** nuts as he. Or else wed have to create a new Wal MArt Parking lot roughly the size of North Korea and for all his bellicosity all we would , wind up having is just another new holiday in which to drink beer , eat barbecue, and set off fireworks by.

Born in conflict and fledged by several wars including one really big one with ourselves, ultimately,we wont take **** from anyone and I think, the other bat **** crazies had better realize that. Wed are slow to anger and, like what was said about us as we suffered Pearl Harbor, "I fear that all we have done is to awajken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve"

We are one of a few countries to celebrate its birthdate to coincide with the BEGINNING of a war, and not its end.

I got an email from Baghdad this morning that said, in part..

That made me realize how much I take for granted. Despite its many problems, America is a really great country. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

I like Tomball and my dog. Oh, and Goodson's Cafe; highways; ordering products from the internet; public education; the right to vote the bastards out, even though we almost never use it; satellites.

Well, that's a perfect statement of The American Dream. I like your profile, too.

@Brandon9000,
diversity, variety, possibilities-

southern food, mexican food
availability of fresh seafood (on the east coast)
fireflies
natural beauty of the land that stretches from 'sea to shining sea'
and
some of its more uniquely hopeful attitudes and musical traditions

@aidan,
i'm partial to west coast seafood myself.

there is nothing quite like the rocky mountains on a crisp fall day.

or the smokies rising out of a morning fog.

@Rockhead,
I've never had seafood on the west coast- I always take the opportunity there to have california's version of mexican food (as opposed to tex-mex).

This country is a long, long way from being perfect. But, as countries go, it's waaay ahead of whoever happens to be in second place.

Every group can find a niche to live a decent existence. The society allows all to contribute up to his/her abilities. We are basically a people that follows the motto, live and let live. Plus, we try hard to not let people starve. That is not true in all parts of the world.
