• NOPE! In fact, when I hear the national anthem I get misty sometimes. I still believe America is a great country to live in despite it's difficulties.
  • No, not at all! The government is not what makes this country great, that changes every 4-8 years. It is the people and the ideals that make America what it is.
  • No. Only leftists think the government is what makes America great. What makes America great is our people, our freedoms and our wealth. I still judge America by the fact the 4 million people a year want to cross over deserts to have a piece of the American dream.
  • I'm neutral on the subject. I'm a citizen of the world.
  • It doesn't make me sick. It makes me sad. Because, I can see all the promise this country was based on going right down the drain.
  • It makes me remember the sacrifices made in order for us to live free. We have our problems but so does every country. Our current state takes nothing away from the sacrifices made by those who came before.
  • No, It absolutely does NOT make me sick. It fills me with a great deal of pride and gratitude for the men and women who fought to form this great nation. Is America perfect? No. But name me one country that is. I am PROUD to be an American. There is a reason why people all over the world strive to reach our shores and achieve their own "American Dream". What does make me sick, however, is this question. Could you have asked a more inflamatory and biased question?
  • no, that doesnt make me sick, but the phony speeches the govnt make does make me wanna puke, esp from dubya. The govnt is very corrupt, but I think the nation it'self will correct in do time.
  • I go to about 35 ball games a year. When the National Anthem starts, I rise, face the flag, place cap to heart, and stand at attention. Am not ashamed for the pride I have in this great country, and am absolutely thrilled I have the opportunity to work and live here and contribute on a daily basis to the advancement of the Great American Way and the new heights its risen to every single day.
  • YOU BETTER WATCH WHAT YOU SAY! You might decide to run for President one day and they'll make you explain your anti-american rhetoric. Do yourself a favor and stick to safe topics. Like abortion or homosexuality. And make sure there's no ni... minorities in your family.
  • What really makes me sick is seeing other americans singing that crap!
  • Not at all. I'm proud to be an American, and look at my username...
  • No, quite frankly they are pretty lousy songs anyway.
  • Not at all. I've served my country, in the military and as a police officer and I'd do it all again. This is the greatest country the world has ever seen. The corruption is with those in office, not the office itself. The President, Senators, Representatives...those are institutions, not persons. But, no matter how big the hole our current President is pushing us into, I'm still a patriot and my chest sticks out a little farther when the National Anthem is played.
  • I agree with Meg and the others who said, no it does not make me sick. I am proud to be an American! And hearing those songs, especially our national anthem makes me very proud and grateful to those who have fought for our country to give us the freedoms we enjoy, take for granted and use to complain about our leaders. What does make me sick are all the whiners who sit on their asses and complain about how horrible America is and how we should be ashamed of the way we treat other countries. BS!! We have done a lot of good for other countries. Yes, there is some bad but as Meg stated, name one country that is perfect. People who are bleeding hearts for all these countries run by dictators and have horrible human rights issues and think we're the big bad wolf and they're all innocent, that makes me sick. America. Love it or leave it.
  • Not sick. But I do go into mourning for the Nation I grew up in. This ain't it anymore.
  • No, I think of our country's greatness in the past, and it gives me hope that before the collapse, the worm will turn on all these seditious bastards who are currently running this country, including our traitorous president, and one day a Teddy Roosevelt will rise to power again.
  • No. Despite the best efforts of the Republicans to Destroy America, she's still the best damned place to live.
  • No. Government has always been basically corrupt, regardless of the country. We still live in the best country in the world. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
  • The strength of the USA is its people, not the government or the office-holders. The people spoke when we elected Obama over McCain. We the people need to keep the pressure on Washington DC to do what is best for us, not them. It is sickening to see how corrupt the government has become and how poorly it cares for us citizens. But we've got to step up somehow and make sure the government does its job.
