    Either way, it's illogical. Be proud of yourself, maybe your progeny.

    Let's see; they have Greece, Spain, and Portugal, so they are doing worse fiscally.

    The EU has at least one country leaving it.

    And they're having muslim terror attacks happening quite regularly.

    I'd say we're doing much better.

    It's illogical to a utopian like yourself.

    There's a reason that type of naive thinking hasn't been shown to be successful in the real world.

    I am proud of myself, and my country too.

    Ok, that's me. I'm fine being called an 'Ugly American'. I actually revel in it.

    We are Number 1, and thus by definition superior. Biggest economy, best middle class, most freedoms. And I'm proud of us.

    We've saved Europe's ass, TWICE, for example. So yes, plenty to be proud of.

    My type of thinking hasn't really been tried in the real world.

    Knock off the nonsense.

    By 'we' I'm obviously referring to our country. If I'm referring to me, I'll use 'I'.
