The 38% of U.S. adults who say they are "extremely proud" to be American is the lowest in Gallup's trend, which began in 2001. Still, together with the 27% who are "very proud," 65% of U.S. adults express pride in the nation. Another 22% say they are "moderately proud," while 9% are "only a little" and 4% "not at all" proud.

That's about in line with the percentage of the brainless who still support trump.

Have pride in the actual things you do, not where you were randomly born. It is the simpletons who ONLY have a birthright as an identity who are the problem.

Why be proud of where you're born?

The only ones not proud are progressives.

I say they can leave and find somewhere they can be "proud" of.

"America, love it or leave it."

A brainless mantra, endlessly repeated by the buffoonish.

Boaz, how can you say that you are proud of America? You hate the government, you hate about 60 to 70% of the population, you hate almost everything that happens here, how can you say you are proud of America?
Let's not forget it's the conservatives who want to make America great AGAIN. That doesn't sound like the slogan of someone who is proud of their country.

Hopefully, Boaz agrees it is time we divided the Country. Eastern US can be for the Republicans and Western US could be for those on the Left. We could still be peaceful trade partners, just different laws. Split the country in 2.

"Boaz, how can you say that you are proud of America?"

Boaz is only proud of the America that he has imagined (or has let other people imagine for him) in his small, limited mind.

That is what invariably happens to many conservative, MIC welfare-state (so-called) Christians. Initially, they are selected for their calling due to their limited intellects and then indoctrinated to believe that the more they hate, oppress, destroy and kill in the name of love, liberty, freedom and salvation, the more Jesus Christ will forgive them and other members of their simian-brained death-cult.

But by their very nature and their own actions, it's questionable whether they believe in Jesus in the first place. They have been programmed to believe they are the eternal underdog David, come to slay the eternal evil Goliath. This mentality shapes their entire worldview, yet their actions upon this Earth resemble more those of Goliath.

What's to be proud of these days. Trump has turned America into a cesspool of criminality.

Get rid of Mafia administrations and legislators who support it and America can be proud again.

What's to be proud of these days.

WTF are you talking about, there's plenty to be proud about. We have freedom, we can vote in elections, we have relatively cheap electricity, we are moving forward on OpenBorders. People by the millions would trade places with you.

Thinking its Trump or someone connected to him that is causing your negative attitude, is faulty thinking. You would be upset with anyone on the other team, you lack any empathy for people that don't agree with you. You are upset with half the country.

Record-Low 38% Extremely Proud to Be American

#12 | POSTED BY MAVERICK

Only because you Foxholes carry Trumpy's water and live in an alternate reality with your "alternate facts" spoon fed to you by FoxProp.

In reality land not so much. It's too early to really rate Biden's presidency but we already know that Trumpy is rated in the worst ten usually about 4th from the bottom.

We will see where Biden lands. But I bet it won't be nearly that bad. Probably the in the middle somewhere. But we'll see ...

"Got that WRONG."

When you hear about the right track/wrong track numbers being so low, you need to factor in that most Democrats/liberals/progressives believe the country is on the wrong track, but it's mostly due to Republican politicians and the rightwing SC.

Why dont you leave and go find somewhere else you can rig elections to keep control of the country without approval of the people?

Boaz says immigrants should go back and fix their county
Boaz then says those who don't like their country should leave
Boaz is inconsistent and capricious, or just really stupid

I am still a proud American. My flag's a little tattered this year but I will fix it up. Soon as I can find an American made one. Maybe even update the light to a new and improved solar light on it this year. You are supposed to have a light on it if you fly it at night, you know.

But, But because I am a proud American I am ashamed and disgusted by the undemocratic and traitorous behavior of some of us. Never seen it this bad. Even in the 60s. (Dating myself.)

And I put my life on the line once for this country and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I guess ... if I have to. I really did have other plans.

But being a proud American it just breaks my heart to see what we have become. Seems these 2nd amendment solutions can be anywhere now so it seems like it is everywhere.

So I am always standing back and stand by and looking for some good body amor I guess.

Because, you know,

Semper Fi.

It's what makes him a conservative.

It's a shared commonality.
