This seems like a curious question whatever country that you are a citizen of.

What country are you a citizen of?

Feel free to elaborate and/or write your own answer if the poll choices don't work for you.

Yes I am proud this is my country. This has nothing to do with being proud of the people in charge of our government.

I'm a United States citizen. This country is surviving in its moral fumes, but I'm praying for a revival of morals/liberty.

I am curious in particular to see how our former overlords (The Brits) respond.

I'm interested in seeing what everyone thinks, though.

Canadian. Commies and socialist are killing this country. If it was not for the large amount of natural resources we have the country would be Greece . 50 years of liberal indoctrination of tolerance, multiculturalism, feminism, bilingualism, political correctness and immigration have destroyed a once great country. The boomer generation are the great destroyers and will be the destruction of many once great western nations.

Well said, Frank. The same is happening here.

To me Aussies and Canadians are the very best of friends to the citizens of the US. Politics aside. You're just good folk.

Not so much the boomers as the programs they will benefit from. In reality, a very small group created these monsters.

I have many relatives in the US. Up here I see the US as the last stand for individual freedom. Your constitution is one of the greatest documents ever written but the left continues to try and destroy it.
Its great to have a neighbour like you for a know as long as you have the 2nd I will have my guns and freedom too. To me the 2nd is freedom because it protects all the rest.

Canadian as well, also choice number two. We have some work to do to reverse the damage done by the liberals in the past. And we're working on it.

Canadian. I'm fairly happy with my country. I'd like to see a few changes i.e. CCW/OC, castle law, stand your ground etc, welfare overhaul to get rid of leeches.....some other stuff.

My biggest issues are self defense and hemorrhaging money to leeches(druggies, welfare mommies, lazy people)

Yes. But my country needs lots of work and I don't see it improving.

Hate to say it but I don't see it improving. The Infrastructure is in
some serious trouble among other things.

With the exception of the last sentence, I agree.

Yes, we are working on it, but I'm less confident that things will actually improve. Leftist, bleeding-heart, socialist pukes are like ants....before you deal with one ant mound, ten more seem to appear out of nowhere.

Socialism seems to be a common cancer that most of us would like to see cured.

Fiscal irresponsibility (government) is another. If that would be fixed by hard laws the socialism problem would wither away. Living within your means and making hard decisions concerning spending!

#3. we spend every thing we take in (plus some) on social programs that out pace economic growth. if you even reduce the amount of the increase, people scream bloody murder. we cannot grow fast enough to continue to raise government spending 6%+ every year.
p.s. i know that military spending is the single largest but i include a % of that since we are doing a lot of military stuff not based on national security or national interest but some sence of world social good.

Same. I'm a 'boomer' and don't see that I will ever retire.

And this is the main reason, keep making the problems that suck us dry.
