Happy 4th of July!! Suck it, Brits! America emote  :usa: 

Actually, this country is way too full of blindly patriotic, bible-humping nationalistic.... errmmm... "if you don't love the flag get outta this country!"-shouting.... ummm..... exclusive... mmm.... anyway, yeah. People who like to shit all over "The New Colossus" and claim to know what the Founding Fathers wanted. We have so many issues, economic, environmental, political, social, and too much shouting, "We're #1!!" while supporting the people and businesses that are chipping away at the very systems that made the US a pretty good place to live. 

That said, we are the only true global superpower. Any other countries that rival us economically or militarily have far more social justice and corruption problems than we do. Sure, we've got plenty of bigots who hate gays, but at least the LGBT community has rights, unlike certain Russias I could name. Yeah, the Tea Party likes to call Obama a communist, but we'll never be China. Sure, women still earn only 77% of what a man earns, but have you SEEN the middle east? And in terms of Freedom of Speech... I think we actually take for granted in the US that we can say whatever slanderous shit we want to about our political leaders and not get in any sort of trouble. Few other countries allow that. And we finally have affordable health care!! Even to the chagrin of certain right-wingers who apparently prefer that people die of treatable illnesses, or go into life-long debt for emergency room bills. I'm really thrilled that I can go to regular physicals! 

We've got a massive amount of problems, but objectively, we ARE still the best. 

I like the 4th of July in particular. I like the history of it. Whatever politically divided shit-show America has become in this modern age, when I watch the fireworks exploding in air over the water, showering down red sparks, I like to think about 1776. I think about the men who decided to stand up and fight, with nothing but a tiny militia and huge chutzpah, against the world's most powerful empire. They banded together and risked life and limb for freedom. The idealism, bravery, and brotherhood is palpable. I think about The Star Spangled Banner. Ignore how overplayed it is, and just think about the lyrics... the rockets exploding overhead, being in this hopeless battle against an undefeatable enemy, but shouting "hold fast!", refusing to retreat or give in...and when the dawn finally breaks, you discover not only had you'd survived: your flag is still there. No one surrendered. It's beautiful, in a combat-fantasy sort of way. 

Anyway, happy 4th! Grill some hotdogs, set off some explosives. ;P
