...i'm proud of what my country should be and what it stands for... but not for what it is... one black guy gets shot and the entire country is involved almost immediately... isis brutality killing thousands of innocent people... takes us over 5 months to respond with any sort of action...
what the hell happened to us? when did our priorities become so backward?
It's such a coincidence that Ты asked this Вопрос on India's independence day. Well there are few thingies which upset me but honestly I feel very proud to be part of this country, it has got so many amazing personality and today we are living 67 years of Independence, India developed so much in 67 years (67 years назад it was like a bonded nation whom Britain used to develop their country) now it is competing with other and soon it'll develop more. I am proud of it, the only thing which I hate is there are still people here who got dirty thinking but I know that our generation will be much better after 10 years India will be completely changed as we are gonna grow up and change the thinking. And it's still changing. Happy Independence день to all the Indians
I'm proud of SOME parts. America still has religious freedom, the right of speech, the right to медведь arms, and other good things lots of other countries lack. But then we have a president who doesn't wait for Congress approval, destroyed our policy of not negotiating with terrorists, spends loads of money on expensive family vacations while we plunge deeper into debt, so on. And that doesn't just make me disappointed in our president, или just our government. It makes me disappointed in the whole country, because the majority voted for him.
Yes, I Любовь America, with my whole heart. I Любовь the ideals of the Founders and I Любовь the progress we are making, even if it's slow. Even if racism isn't dead. Even if it was only a few months назад that I was дана the legal right to get married in my Главная state.
But there are things I'm not proud of - police brutality and the systematic racist and classist oppression of certain groups, lack of rights for queers, poc, women and immigrants, a bullshit government, a capitalist economy whose flaws outweigh its merits by hurting innocent people and Животные and the environment. I'm not proud of the ignorance или lack of equality. I'm not proud of the establishments. But I'm proud we're increasingly aware of these inequalities and I'm proud of the people that care enough to try to change them.
It depends on what part. Sometimes, I'm very proud and sometimes I'm the opposite. There's also the confusion over what I should consider my county - the UK, Britain and England are all different things, and my answer changes depending on which one I consider. Generally, I'm very proud. I'm proud of the incredible Olympic/ Paralympic Games in Лондон and Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. I'm proud of the incredible generosity of the people when it comes to charity and humanitarian aid. I'm proud of our long history and traditions we still carry with us. I'm proud of the NHS. I'm proud of the 99% of the population who are genuinely good people and work hard to make the world a better place. I'm proud of our culture and how rich it has become. I'm not so proud of the history of colonialism and brutality. I'm not happy with the state of the education system (though I think it's a lot better than other countries). I'm not happy with the official government view on the Israel/Gaza conflict.
I honestly am very proud of my country. The United States may not be all smiles and rainbows, nor do we make the smartest decisions, but we definitely aren't as strict или as pushy as some other countries. :|
I will always Любовь this country no matter how bad the president is. I was born here and I will die here. People who hate this country, there's something wrong with you. This country is amazing. I know that the government and Obama are god awful, but this country was much better long time ago. This country has nothing to do with anyone but the origins. But I hate the president and my parents do too. He ruined this beautiful country and he doesn't care for anyone. A president should Любовь this country and care for his own people before caring for other countries. My mom and dad say he's a communist, which is what he is.
*Sighs* I don't know which country is better to be in now. Egypt или America? Because right now I worry for both of them. Oh wait...I am еще proud of Egypt than I am of America. Especially with Последнее events and whats going on in general.
For what it was meant to stand for, yes. But thats the thing: humanity tends to corrupt things that they get their evil lil hands.
Authority, which was once meant to be a sign of protection, and now sadly corrupted by the Evil that lies within this Earth.
The Law is corrupted, the government is corrupted and hell, maybe even some churches have gone dark. Humans everywhere have fallen into darkness, no light или Любовь seems to be found in this Hell-hole.
Now, I don't mean to sound paranoid или a downer, but it is the Truth. I know some humans are gullible and act like nothing is happening. But I know this world is F-ed up and is in need of Salvation. Well, not the world, but us.
however, now i sadly resonate in the Americas, which i dont like. to keep it short, americans are douche bags.
they are racist, and they dont think women deserve the same amount of pay of men? they are homophobic and the whole country is run by middle aged men.
Ты could agrue that it has еще freedom then other countries, which it does. but it still isnt all the way there.
in the constitution the tenth amendment would of been that women get the same pay as men, and Ты cannot underpay a female on purpose just because shes a lady.
however, the men of the country seemed it was unfit, and since Ты needed 3/4 of the Голоса for it to pass, it was never passed.
dont even get me started on slavery, which by the way was the worst thing in the history of america by far.
but dont get me wrong, there were other countries paticipating in slavery, but that doesnt help anything at all. america still did it, and its still wrong no matter how many other countries did the same.
and of course of the fact that people such as judges have a hard time arresting police officers for crimes. there have been many instances where american police officers have raped, abused, killed and stolen just because they wear a shiny badge, and most of the time, no one believes the victim. and they have weird accents.
But there are a few things I'm proud about. I'm proud that we established Weta Digital and now have a visual effects department that is internationally recognised. I'm also proud of how NZ does with sports, we have some pretty ace victories sports-wise.
