If you believe in God, wouldn't you want Him to bless the entire world?
Why stop there?
Why not say "God bless Creation"?
Although, if God created it, why not bless it after he finished??
I always thought it is a bit egocentric of Americans to say that. At least Tiny Tim (not the long haired Ukulele star of the 60's who sang tip toe through the tulips, but the little crippled boy in A Christmas Carol) would at least say God Bless us everyone
We say "God Bless America" like we say "bless you" after someone sneezes.
It just a proper thing to say.
Alternative, we could say "Go America!" or "America Rocks!", but the general public likes to go with the old standard.
Speak for yourself!
I'll go with what George Carlin says on this issue:

How about this?
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nH5ixmT83JE]YouTube - Jeremiah Wright - God Damn America - Obama's Spiritual Mentor / Pastor[/ame]
So you agree with Wright?
I didn't used to, but then I had a frontal lobotomy and he just made so much sense. That was about the same time I voted for Barack Obama.
Why would I not want my community blessed?
