If anyone’s been noticing, there have been some serious anti-USA sentiments in the past decade and more that have been growing as people have continued to push their own narratives when it comes to the efficiency of this great country of ours. We’re not perfect, we have dark points in our history that we’re attempting to work past, but from a positive perspective our country is far greater than some might think. There are a number of reasons why this is so, and here are just a few.
- This is our home.
For those of us that were born here, this is home. No matter the region, no matter the town, city, or state, this is home, and we love it like no other.
2. This is a very diverse country.
Take a run through just about any state, especially those that are closer to the country’s borders, and you’ll see a wide assortment of people from all races, ethnicities, and religious backgrounds. Countries from all over the world have made their way to this place, and most if not all have done so seeking a better life, or a chance to do something big while they have the time.
3. Our government is made up of elected officials.
There is no monarchy here, the title isn’t passed off from one family member to another. While sometimes people don’t agree who’s best for the job, it’s the idea that we get to select from the people who can best represent us.
4. We can choose what religion, if any, we want to follow.
America is a land where religions of all type are free to flourish providing that they don’t cause harm to any other in an overt and obvious manner. Religion isn’t perfect either, but it’s our right to worship as we see fit, or not. Your beliefs are your own in this country.
5. We’re free to say what we want.
The freedom of speech is great in that we can say what we want, when we want, and how we want. Obviously this doesn’t free us from the consequences of our words, as others will have different opinions and will give rise to them. But that’s the freedom of speech, and it’s available to everyone. We’re even free to disagree with each other and still be friends! How great is that?
