    I did explain my answer to the best I could given your ambiguous question. Perhaps you can guide me if you want more.


    how about you btw?
    No you you gave me exactly the type of answer that should be expected for this question.

I would be able to give a far more detailed answer if I knew what you were referring to specifically.
    Actually I don't. Just answer it in anyway you see fit. That's why there is no specific sub-category.

    Re: Do You Belong Here?

    No.

    Related: once my wife told me that the country didn't belong where it was, but that it would look better three inches to the left, so I moved it, and then the she said she didn't like it there and told me to move it back to where it was again. I told her, that I moved it once, and that's where it's staying. If she wants to move it again, she can do it her damned self. So If you think the country belongs three inches to the right of where it is now, blame her.

    No.

    I like to travel and I'd love to visit the USA again during 3 or 4 weeks, but I'd not live outside my country!

    The weather is not always great, there are bad things over here and sometimes our politicians mess everything up, but I've got the local mentality (= the art of not being French, Dutch, English or German). I need my friends, my family, local food...and life isn't so bad over here.

    That's hilarious.

    When I was young, I was a radical punk rock ignorant fool who thought America was a great villain and I would be better of in a more moral country like Britain, or at least Canada. I think my joining the Navy was in part a reaction to my rising realization that we were better than I had thought. During my time in the Navy, I came to truly, deeply love my country, and in the dozen or so countries I have been to, there is none that I would now ever want to live in.

    Then you really have no reason to ask people to elaborate on their answers if you refuse to give a more specific frame of reference. However, so as to not derail this thread further (not that it was really "railed" to begin with) I will refrain from posting more on this particular issue.

    Re: Do You Belong Here?

    I have never felt I did not belong here. I have been in places that I did not feel that I belonged such as a goat roast in Paron, Arkansas, but I love this country and have always felt I belonged in it. However, my connection has always been to the land more than the people. People are largely the same when you get down to it regardless of where you go. Its the land and our standard of living in many ways that really sets us apart.

    That said, I would not be adverse to living in other places, but they would have to be outdoor playgrounds. For example, I probably could handle Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, but I would not be big on some nations because they are just two settled without any real wildlands remaining.

    No I have never felt that I didn't belong in my country.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thats part of how I feel about where I am.

    I pretty much don't have a connection to the people here.
    The land I love, I hated to move from my last residence because I was on 40 acres backed up to a forest.

    I loved it and still do but now I live in a townhouse. Sigh

    I'd like to experience the Australian desert, Siberian wastes, and everything in between.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
