    i mean every bit of it. What historic blunders do you regret? What historic achievement are you most proud of as an American?

    No one can say they are proud of every single event in their history ... be it national or personal. If you are can't point to a single mistake in our history then we are only acknowledging a filtered version of it. Filtering out the bad bits only skews your perception going forward.

    That being said, I believe, that America and Americans have been a force for good in this world. We can relish in our collective achievements and reflect on our collective mistakes.

    I am most proud of America as a concept... the idea that people can come from all over this planet for the purpose of achieving the greatest amount of freedom ever allowed a people.

    We may not always achieve our collective goals, but at least we have them.

    "I'm proud. It's a shit world, and this country became its king. A lot of good has come from here, and a lot of bad. We're Rome in 100 AD, 19th Century Britain, Persia and its king Cyrus the Great in 550 BC... We speak a word, and the world trembles. We have some stupid ass people in this country, but they're smarter than the stupidest people in most other countries. The rest of the world has smart people, but we have more smart people than any of them. This country gives "greatness" a better chance than any other in the world." END SPEECH.

    This is a marvelous country with a remarkable history. From the earliest explorers to the frontier heroes our history needs to be told over and over with pride and love.

    No, but could you at least manage to be embarrassed by your racism?

    Show me the man today that has the courage or resourcefulness of a Daniel Boone or Kit Carson. There are no more men with the abilities of a Lewis Wetzel. Tough men. Men that could build a great nation. Now we have pajama boys who worry about how toxic their masculinity is.
