Equal treatment under the law ( haha), for instance--41 shots. Thanks to rampant prejudice, especially in places like Kansas, we can get killed just for living in our American skins:
Negative liberty--the right to be left alone--although busybodies seem to have a senior moment when reminded of that one. Street harassers are fairly clueless too. Just answer their unanswerable questions with another one in return, "Do you always claim to be God's gift by violating the personal space and boundaries of complete strangers?, "Is that a fake question, or did you think it up yourself?"
People who understand usually go quietly about their own business, but yahoos too often ask offensive, intrusive, and patronizing questions out loud. This racket shames thinking people so much!
I appreciate our freedom of speech. I like that we can say whatever we want about our leaders and about religion. I like that we can protest. I like that I don't have to carry ID with me everywhere I go. I like that parents can make their own medial decisions for their kids and that we can homeschool if we want to. There ARE countries that I think are much better than ours, but in the grand scheme of things we're not in a bad one. We're not in poverty, we're varying degrees of educated (we at least have access to education, how about that, haha), I appreciate that the majority of our problems are first world problems.
Having just returned from a two year assignment at the American Embassy, Moscow, Russian Federation, I have learned to appreciate many simplicities in life here. The freedom of travel without the need to show a passport just to check into a hotel, freedom of speech and the right to own firearms. Add to that the abundance of food items, the availability of all types of consumer goods and I believe we have it made here. People don't appreciate what they have until they live in a place that has none ot the aforementioned rights and items.
Being number one! USA, USA, USA!
I love flipping with people on this stupid site.
Actually, on a serious note, the list is too long as to why I am glad and proud to be a USA citizen and card carrying member of the ACLU which protects those very freedoms.
Barbeque, not much else of late.
The finest politicians money can buy.
owning a gun
Having my civil liberties and voting rights taken away from me while supplementing those losses with their barbaric interpretations of "the right to bear arms."
Remembering what it was like having some semblance of freedom.
