    I'm proud to be a New Yorker. As an American I'm a bit ashamed to share the place with New Jersey.

    I have a love/hate relationship with America and Texas in particular.

    Pride comes from personal accomplishment ... Fortune comes from circumstance ... I feel fortunate to be born in this country

    There is also a difference between an American, and "The Ugly American."

    Hell yes. When I became an American (naturalized, sworn in) there were probably 3,000 people or so there, mostly gooks. The judge was a black guy and he gave a speech about America and what it meant to be an American, the responsibility we had to the rest of the world. I cried like a baby it was so poignant and meaningful.

    America fuckin rocks

    then you meet some of the people who get to be Americans simply because their parents got lucky one night, and you get all disillusioned.

    I'm proud and happy to be a Canadian.

    If I was born in the US I'm sure I'd be proud and happy to be an American.
    Any 1st world country really.
