How are Americans still proud of their country? From both conservative and liberal perspectives, it has arguably gone very seriously astray?

America is one of the most deeply divided societies in existence, its neither truly conservative nor genuinely liberal from most countries' perspectives

    We have the oldest living constitution in the world, the most powerful military, the largest economy, and the largest donor of emergency aid to third world countries, not to mention the US has invented nearly every modern convenience the world currently enjoys, saved the planet during WWII, we currently protect the entire western half of Europe, all of North America, Israel, South Korea Japan, Taiwan, Australia ... so I guess these are good reasons to be proud. 

    Oh yeah... despite our $23 trillion in debt, we still outpace China in general wealth by about $100 trillion dollars.

    I hope this answers your question.

    You couldn't even define "liberal" or "conservative" --- non-words that serve only as labels.

    Don't let media hype nor election year scare-tactics frighten you so much. 

    USA as constituted is the most equal & decentralized & free nation of the Earth. 

    USA has tremendous wealth in natural resources & in the energy of its people. 

    USA has a proud history of using those resources not to subjugate, but to help & improve the rest of the planet.  

    USA is not perfect, its made by man and therefore flawed.  But its about as close to perfection as anything the Earth has ever seen. 

    " I am going to talk of controversial things. I make no apology for this.  It's time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. 

    This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream-the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism...."  ---  Ronald Reagan 1964

    Our government has been partially compromised by the corrupt GOP and the idiot in the oval office.  However, these traitors don't represent all citizens, or the higher ideals that our country was created to represent.  Even they cannot take away the positive parts of our history, or our dreams for a better future.

    Do you have our freedoms?  Do you consider our resources?  We've been fighting foreign wars to establish oil in other nations when our nation is Oil Independent.  The Division is between the Godly and the ungodly.  Hate is walking among us and it is a green eyed monster like jealousy.  Good people have walked into America from foreign nations and loved our freedoms so much that they became a great American.  Then bad people walked into America and tried to bring their trouble to us and change us.  It is not easy keeping America the America that we love, but evil always shows its ugly head.  Christians are told by God to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  Do you know why?  When peace comes to Jerusalem is when Christ Jesus returns and when Christ returns the whole world will have peace.  So if you believe socialism or communism will bring Utopia, you are wrong.  Man cannot bring Utopia to any land because the heart of man always leans toward evil.  Out of a man's heart comes evil thoughts.  This is Scripture.   Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."  There are still enough Christians in America to make this nation great again.  God will bless the works of our hands and He will bless our land once again.  Christians are discerning and knowing that evil walks among us, we put on the whole armor of God daily as defense.

    Syria says "hold my beer". There are 330 million of us and the vast majority of those get along just fine. The few who are losing their minds are just being amplified by a media that seeks to undermine us (for reasons I can't understand). You don't have be proud of your country, but perspective matters.

    Most divided? Really? Are you forgetting the civil war when the nation literally split? Or all the other nations that have split because they were so divided? How about a dose of reality instead of the melodrama?
