Americans, tell me something?

How can you be proud and patriotic of your country when you are the only sole nation that caused harm and devastation ever since the dawn of time?

Where do you find this strength?

Updates:
When I say "dawn of time"- it is a figure of speech. I just meant 'ever since the birth of your history".

  • Since the dawn of time huh, not even close America has only been around since 1776, by the way, the dawn of time was billions of years ago. Why don't you try taking a look at Spain, England, for instance. England has invaded countless countries every country but 22 in the entire world, killed millions of people through war, mass human burnings, purges, enslaved many people, altered the course of several countries by forcibly invading and imposing their will on them And where, overall cruel, dictator/tyrant like (they aren't now though ).
    Spain, well Spain is the responsible for the annihilation and extinction of pretty much a entire civilization and culture, and all for gold.

    Germany the Nazi's they were involved in hybridizing alien technology, witchcraft, cults, inhumane human study and scientific research, torture, and killings that make your stomach turn just by reading about them, piled up the bodies of jews like trash and for what? all for the sake of genetic purity the search for one superior race through a world wide purge the likes of which would have made past, present and future genocides look like play time, if the combined forces of half the world wouldn't have stopped them they would have annihilated everything world wide, and wiped any race who stood in their way.

    sure America has it's own sins, but don't accuse us of being the most harmful nation since the dawn of time, read history, educate yourself, you'd know that what you say is not true. And a word of advice don't make a claim like that without proof, records etc.

    And you want to know why we are proud and patriotic, because we tore ourselves from tyranny, we fought, bleed and died for our freedom and we built a country based on the principles of freedom, justice and liberty for all. And by the way our governments view on things is not the countries or the peoples view, and don't make assumptions about us.

  • Really? Why are Germans proud of their country? Why are British proud of theirs? Why are French proud of theirs? Why are Spaniards proud of their country? Why are Chinese, Japanese, Italians, Mongolians, Greeks, Turks, Persians... proud of their country?
    You do realize that all this countries have also cause a lot of destruction right?

    You claim Americans to be stupid, but you forget to first look in the mirror.

    I'm not American, but I love America, way more than I love the country I was born. You can criticize the US as much as you want, but there's a reason why there are so many people that wanna live there.
    Yes, America is not as good as it used to be, but it still ranks Top 5 in quality of life index.

    Oh, and you're completely wrong if the US has caused harm and devastation since it was born. Learn some history please, you're 26.

  • The ignorance is strong with this one.

    "And to the Republic and That for which it stands..."

    The latter of those is sacred, no matter what piece of geography it lives on. If this land abandons those principles because it finds the God behind them offensive, then it will fall. The Republic no longer functions as one.

    Do you really think flags are what matter to me? I care about souls. The harmonious coexistence of mercy and justice in forms not perverted by anything.

    Elusive goals, yes. The American Republic was merely a means to an end for those who believed similarly. Yet, the Founders knew what was needed to maintain it. And would be appalled that so many with so little good reason abandoned faith in what was necessary.

    The farce calling itself America today is the USSA in everything but name, run by the same cockroaches that have already burned half the world with their poisonous rebellion-against-God-at-all-costs and their obsessive worship of The Plan.

    While many were sleeping, true Americanism was marooned on a proverbial island somewhere. Its children were brainwashed, and the original's ideals were perverted almost beyond recognition.

    • By the way guys, I am not attacking the people in America personally. I was referring to the past devastions America caused. I am in no way saying that this country is better than that country. I was just crying yesterday and this caused my anger.

  • Every top tier nation on the planet, throughout time, has had to do some not-so-ethical things to maintain that power.

    Why?

    Because like anything else, success brings jealousy. I know half of the world wants the USA to fall off its proverbial mountain top.

  • "How can you be proud and patriotic of your country when you are the only sole nation that caused harm and devastation ever since the dawn of time?"

    Are you kidding me? While I do agree that the US is far from perfect, I think that is a bit extreme. The US isn't even 300 years old yet. I think the worst that the US has caused was to the Native American populations which were already in shambles from Europeans such as the Spanish, English , French, and Portuguese. I think there are much worse candidates out there for "devastation and harm" than the US. The majority of wars fought by the US were for good intentions whereas most Western European countries fought wars for greed. I see that you are from Australia. You guys devastated your native populations no differently than Americans did. This is coming from a black guy. My ancestors were second class citizens for the majority of our history yet I still don't see America as even coming close to the top of the list of "harm and devastation"

  • You know maybe you are right. Maybe we do cause too much trouble. Like the time we fought in World War I, and World War II. The world did be better off speaking Japanese, Italian, and German. I would have never existed since Japan would dominate the Pacific, but it's okay. How about the Jews? Well it now can be okay since they are allowed to die as well. How about Europe? Well they did be ruled by psychopaths in places like former France. Oh, and Russia would be powerless to do anything since we would have been wiped out since any Country will be powerless to help. It will still be okay due to us not intervening since the world will be wiped out.

    Think before you pull words out of your a*s. None of us would exist if America did nothing at all during the War. You annoying snotty nosed foreigners thinking you guys are so great like you have pulled the planet from nothing at all during the whole time as if this planet is yours for all of this tough time. >:(.

    3. Great Americans. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, John Hennessy, Thomas Edison. George Washington carver , Oprah mean the list is endless.
    4. Our Hollywood movies are world wide
    5. Our corporations are world wide. Google, Microsoft, Apple, Holden, Tesla I mean the list could go on.

  • America has caused harm and devastation? Since the dawn of time? LOL. Troll. The country is only 240 years old. Dawn of time... lol
    Well, our country is an amalgam of the oppressed from all over the planet. Unlike most countries we started from scratch and were ale to build a country on the hopes and hard work of its immigrants.
    The country embodied noble values from its founders to recently. They have dropped by the wayside of late. We now have a secret police. We no longer have the freedom of speech nor the freedom from unlawful search and seizure that our Constitution ensured us. We now have a president that is quoted as calling the Constitution an outdated, and deeply flawed document reflecting the deep flaws of the founding fathers". Radical liberalism has created a welfare state that no longer supports individual liberty.
    With that being said, we are the single largest economy on the planet, we deliver more economic and social aid to the world than all the other countries combined. Our military bailed Europe out of WWI, and WWII. We defended Europe against the Soviet Union and thus defended the rest of the world from the fate of soviet domination.
    So while you can bitch and moan away, remember that you are bitching and moaning SOLELY because American Citizens and American Soldiers laid down their lives and their dollars to keep you free and alive.
    Next time you want to bitch about America, perhaps tell me what your country has done today to make this a better world.

      I'd prefer the company of someone a bit more down-to-earth over someone like you any day.

  • You assume that all of us are patriotic and love our country. A growing number of Americans are taking the blinders off and seeing the US for the country that it really is. The problem we face is the fact that those who have taken the blinders off are still largely out numbered by the people who still have them on.

  • America may not have always made the best decisions, but at least our govt never killed 6 million people in systematic slaughter or put them in concentration camps for no reason. We also never ordered all baby girls to be adopted out or slaughtered. We did not start the Vietnam war. In fact most Americans didn't even want to be there. We also do not execute or force into hard labor our political opponents like North Korea does.

    • Not to mention our country was home to some of the greatest inventors/scientists ever. Names like: Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Henry Ford, Nikola Tesla, Jonas Salk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Lee Iaccoca, The Wright Brothers, And Ben Franklin. Some of those were not born in the US but called it their home country after the immigraated here.

  • How can you say that? 1. Any war we've gone into defends our freedom or someone elses freedom. Sure we fight a lot but we fight for what is good and just. 2. You just stereotyped an entire country. That's like saying all Indians work for customer support. Or that all Asian women speak in a high pitched voice. It's just not true.

  • People automatically feel a sense of pride when they were brought up in school systems that taught us to think a specific way about out heritage. Even without the influence of the education system my family has been in America since my absestors migrated here during the early 13 colonies. I have relatives that have fought in wars to protect us and make sure we are able to continue to lead the lives we were born into. It just comes with the territory or being an American. I might not be proud of our history but I will always be an American. I can't undo the damage that America has caused the world but at the same time I am not to blame for the faults of the people who came before me.

Americans are greedy consumerist that really only care about their own we being (If you judge us as a whole) Though you cannot judge all Americans based on this stereotype, just as we can't stereotype all citizens of the next country.. their not all the same.

    Also I'd have to disagree on your statement that America is the only country that has caused harm since our birth. There have been several other country's causing loads of devastation to the world. Example: Nazi Germany, The whole ISIS thing and many others. Every country has their faults I think. Because we are all competing to be on the top and sometimes in order to be on the top you have to get your hands dirty.
    This does not mean I agree with any tactics we Americans have taken or with those that other nations have taken either.

That I honestly believe is what caused devastation to the planet the most. The only thing to cause a mass human devastation was the black plague which happened in 1346–53. Which killed 75 to 200 million Which it came from Central Asia. So a third of the European population was wiped out during that time period.
