    Are you proud to be American/citizen of your country?

    In Germany, for understandable reasons, many people are reluctant to say they're "proud to be German".

    How about you? Are you proud to be American/British/[insert nationality here]? Or rather, would you openly word it this way?

    No. I'm proud of my country most of the time, but I'm not proud to be an American. That was a lucky accident of birth.

    I'm proud to be who I am. Period. Being American is one of many things that I am.

    I'm sure Germany has it's attributes, I mean you do make really great villains in the movies.

    I'm proud of America's ideals. Thin lines drawn on a map mean little to me. I'm a patriot but not a nationalist.

    Meh, I'm proud to be a human being, nationalities seems to merely be another way of societal separation.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Yeah, we have the ultimate benefit of having both Nazis and Commies in our historical baggage! When that's no opportunity ...

    I love Indiana Jones, btw.
