Why America Is Great
Top 10 Reasons that Thinking Americans Love Their Country
By Dan Flynn
FrontPageMagazine.com | October 25, 2002


Despite the intellectual pretensions of those who practice it, anti-Americanism is reflexive and mindless. Patriotism, despite its bad reputation amongst the intelligentsia, is a rational sentiment for an American to hold. This is the thesis I prove in my new book, Why the Left Hates America.

No one is obligated to love their country. Yet Americans do-overwhelmingly. Why are Americans, despite the national self-hatred expressed by so many elites, still patriotic? Because America is a force for good in the world as no country has ever been.

Here are ten good reasons why thinking Americans should love their country:

10. Entertainment
The movies the world watches, the television shows they tune into, and the music they listen to are, for the most part, produced in the United States. For instance, the U.S. exports more than 25 times the number of movies and television shows than it consumes from abroad, a fact that causes Ben Wattenberg to observe quite correctly that America is "the most culturally potent nation in the world." Even the virulent America-hater Saddam Hussein reportedly spends a good portion of his time watching American-made movies such as The Godfather and Enemy of the State.

9. Immigration
During the hundred years ending in the 1920s, a majority of the world's immigrants came to one lone country: the United States. Today, the U.S. takes in more immigrants than at any point in its history. Yet, the Left portrays America as a bastion of xenophobia and bigotry. Alexander Hamilton (the first Secretary of the Treasury), John Jacob Astor (America's first multimillionaire), Alexander Graham Bell (invented the telephone), Louis B. Mayer (Hollywood pioneer), Selman Waksman (cured tuberculosis), and Ralph Baer (invented the video game) are among the immigrants to America whose lives belie the Left's premise. Just as those who complain about "oppression" in the U.S. would never entertain the idea of living anywhere else, the people around the world we allegedly oppress flock to come here. This contradiction between leftist theory and real-world practice illustrates just how delusional the central tenets of leftist thought really are.

8. Technology
Nothing disproves the Leftist mantra that "all cultures are equal" more than technology does. Americans have given the world motion pictures, the telephone, the television, the computer, the Internet, the airplane, the VCR, and a host of other machines and devices that have vastly improved the quality of life on the planet. Ironically, the terrorists who hate the U.S. give America a tacit endorsement every time they turn on a light, escape the heat through air conditioning, monitor their exploits on television or the internet, or communicate via telephone.

7. Creating Wealth
America is the sun around which the world economy revolves. The typical creator of wealth in the world is an American. Foreigners benefit from buying better products from American companies and working better jobs manufacturing such products. Take America's $9 trillion dollar economy out of the picture, and the economic well being of the rest of the world nose-dives.

6. Generosity
With great wealth comes great generosity. In 2000, Americans gave more than $200 billion in charity, dwarfing the amount donated elsewhere. Since World War II, the U.S. government has given well in excess of $500 billion (not adjusted for inflation) in foreign aid. Last year, our government distributed more than $20 billion to 130 countries. While American taxpayers have a right to gripe, what are we to make of foreign beneficiaries who return our favor by burning U.S. flags and chanting "death to America"?

5. Human Achievement
Americans have stretched the bounds of the possible. The first transatlantic flight, putting a man on the moon, breaking the speed of sound, constructing the Hoover Dam, and building the Panama Canal serve as testimony to American courage and ingenuity. It wasn't Danes or Bolivians or Iranians or Koreans who achieved these feats. It was Americans. This is significant.

4. Enlightened Power
The Soviet Empire ruled over Eastern Europe. The Ottoman Empire claimed dominion over vast stretches of the Islamic world. The Empire of the Sun sought dominion over the Orient. The American Empire rules...only Americans. America is an historical curiosity. It is the most powerful country in the world, yet it eschews imperialism. Instead, it has used its military might to liberate. Nazi Germany, North Korea, Soviet Russia, Hussein's Iraq, and Communist Vietnam are among the nefarious states we sought to prevent from increasing their totalitarian control over others. The world is a better place because America, and not some other country, is the sole superpower.

3. Medicine
Will Nigerian doctors make the blind see? Will Cambodians cure AIDS? Will Pakistanis eradicate cancer? The answer is probably not. Why? The reason is that non-Westerners have had no discernable impact on modern medicine. This year, like 45 of the last 60, an American won a share of the Nobel Prize in the field of medicine. Americans cured polio and tuberculosis, developed vaccines for hepatitis B and yellow fever, pioneered modern chemotherapy, and produced the CAT scan and MRI. What's there to hate about that?

2. Democracy
Leftists harp that American democracy is tainted because not everyone possessed the right to vote at the Founding. Denial of the vote in the 18th century, however, was universal. What made America unique was not that some people could not vote, but that anybody could. More than 215 years after the Constitutional Convention, most people on the planet still do not have a right to vote. Every Arab country, more than three-fourths of African nations, and many of the most populous nations in the Orient still deny their citizens the right to choose their own leaders. Despite the continued rejection by many foreign leaders, the ideals of the American Founding became contagious. Our example served to topple regimes far from our shores. Pro-democracy activists don't quote the founding documents of Saudi Arabia or appropriate the cultural symbols of China. They cite passages from the Declaration of Independence and hoist replicas of the Statue of Liberty.

1. Freedom
America has shined as a beacon of freedom in an unfree world for more than two centuries. To this day, for instance, most people living outside our borders reside in countries where the private practice of broadcast journalism is illegal and where the state is the dominant banker. Americans can say anything they want, worship any god they choose, and associate with any motley crew around. Our legacy is not slave chains, Wounded Knee, and the murder of James B

Oh, and CWalker...Excellent post.  I agree 100%.

Lets talk Clinton. He actually tried to talk with both sides of Palestinian, he was well liked in the international communities, he did bomb Taliban Terriorist camps after they bombed American Embassies, he tried to avoid war, he tried to get a health care that poor people could afford, but Republicans said no, but he still got Senior Citizens free medication, something that G.Dub got rid of almost as soon as he got into office, and now my grandma, who ain't got much money, is paying for that. I will say Clinton should have lifted the Embargo with Iraq, but the Republicans, who ruled the House and Senate, would have fucken kittens, and smear his name all over the place.

So what if he got his dicked suck, his the fucken president, it's a very stressful and pressure fullied job. Shit, that should be included with the pay, 'cause I know if the president is relaxing with an intern, he will be good for the next day, instead of all stressed out and saying crazy ass shit about getting revenge for his father. Shit, ruin our reputation, lots of men cheat, it's not against the law, against religion, but not the law, and the United States is not religious in terms of law. Now killing many innocent people is not as bad getting a dick sucking and lying about it so he would get in trouble with his wife. Muthaphukka, I guess Clinton was worst than Bush, though Bush is about to start World War III if he gets his way with that law that allows us to invade countries without the U.N., 'cause other nations will do as us, and then everyone is invading each other, and Bush started, and can't say shit.

id agree with entertainment and technology... (even though id aruge some of the best films arent american, it does have the biggest entertainment industry)

in your rhetorical questions within the medience section, the reason non of the countries are making great developments in the medical world is mainly funding, nothing to do with ability. the countries you mentioned are all poor, mainly due to exploitation by the west, im sure if they had as much funding as america they could make just as many developments.

in the creating wealth system, wasnt it america's economy that collapsed thus leading to the rest of the world, thus giving hitler a chance to sezie power in germany.

in human achievements, granted achievements were made but this are just put down for all the bad shit america has done. the only reason america put a man on the moon in 1969 was because the soviet union was going to beat them
foriegn aid is the less America can do following world war 2 after the fucked up shit they did.

I really doubt freedom, i mean thats just bullshit. maybe in some areas like film and tv where they dont actually have a censorship board like other nations. but consider for a moment the years leading up to the Vietnam war. They supported this bloke called Diem as the Democratic South Vietnam President right? to stop communism from spreading. But Diem wasnt democratic, he rigged elections, eliminated all political oppenents, placed peasents into Strategic Hamlets or concertration camps to seperate them from communism, surpressed buddhists so much they started burning themselves as america watched with a smile. diem was a dictator, not as extreme as hitler but still a dictator. so the line "Communist Vietnam are among the nefarious states we sought to prevent from increasing their totalitarian control over others" is fuckin bullshit. and this was before all the protesting shit, 3 years before. So tell me America was all about freedom then.

and communist north vietnam only seek unification with south vietnam. the communist were gonna allow a election to decide on democracy or communism as the Geneva Conference said. but it was the democratic south that knock the elections back. Communist vietnam never wanted to control others. get your facts right. a terriost group started the civil war that america got involved with. get your facts right

as for america liberating nazi germany. i believe if u check ur historical books, though america contributed, the soviet union's red army achieved that task.


you cant just consider the positives without noting america's negatives

- dropping a nuke on civillians in japan
- dropping napalm on vietnam peasents
- illegal bombing of cambodia that eventually resulted, not directly but eventually, pol pot coming to power and killing 1.3 million people.
- killing of civillians during war. e.g. My Lai Massacre
- capital punishment
- racism and homophobia in southern states, some states still make homosexuality against the law.
- pressing their ideology on any nation they can, believeing that it is the the ideology, instead of just an ideology.
- motivating and breeding some of the worst criminals our world has seen.

i dont want no beef, this is just why i dont think america isnt all that great, just one view point

if ur going to talk about Presidents ruining your reputation
talk about nixon (illegal bombing of cambodia, laos), johnson (for going into vietnam at all), bush (for just being a redneck). clinton is no where as embarrassing as these three.

Overall a good post. America is the greatest country, thats pretty clear. But the author was blinded by his patriotism and I see alotta holes in the post. In every section. Let me break it down:
10. Despite Scent of a Woman, The Godfather, Forrest Gump etc., most of American movie pictures are dumb, promoting violence, bad sense of humor, pornography or hate towards other nations. I don't know about other places, but here in Russia our own movies take almost the same percentage in movie theatres as American.
9. Immigrants come to USA not because they love America, they just need more money. Immigrants are mot a subject of pride, they're a problem in America, I think.
8. The television, the airplane and the radio were invented by Russians. So the author operates with some bullshit, too.
7. The only American product popular here in Russia is Coca Cola. An American manufacturer has never been a stereotype of a perfect one. It's usually a German or a Japanese.
6. Death to America is chanted by those who are being bombed by the USA. They dont actually think about the help USA did to them before.
5. Well now, Russians put the first man in space, built the Volgo-Baltic and Volgo-Don Canals (a lot longer than the Panama Canal), invented the hydrogen bomb, so at least Americans are not the only ones.
4. Pure bullshit. Nazis were defeated by Soviet Union. Soviet Union dissolved by itself. And American empire rules the whole world, becuz it can bomb any country at any time without asking anybody.
3. Transplantology was started by Russian doctor Dorokhov. The immunity was discovered by Russian scientist Mechnikov. Conditional reflexes were discovered by Russian scientis Pavlov. You're not the only ones here, too.
2. Democracy, huh? So you say George W Bush was elected by the majority of your citizens? I highly doubt that. In democracy, Al Gore should have become a president.
1. Freedom, huh? Who made reservations for Indians? Who made ghettoes for blacks? Freedom in America is not for everybody.


All in all, Dan Flynn is right. It's a great pleasure to be an American. But Americans dont' know anything positive about the rest of the world, and they dont really want to.

agreed, America has done many great things,
"One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

It makes me sad to read this post. All I can say is america is hypocritical to the bone.

We need guns to protect ourselves. What other country has serial  snipers?schoolyard shooters, and daily murders in the ghettos?

We are free...yet communist partys are banned

We give foreign aid...yet we dont give access to our markets to let these economies grown. giving less than half aid per head of population as ireland

We have forests so we should be allowed discard the kyoto agreement and go on using a third of the worlds energy and while we're at it, promote global warming, we could all do with a nice summer.

Not to mention the palestinians...how dare they want their territory back...how unreasonable....

God Bless America!!!

the country that kills crimimal as punishment


The fact that we have the death penalty makes America great, in my opinion. The overwhlming majority of Americans support it, and I have a hard time understanding why the rest do not.

Take this DC sniper for instance. He went out an brutally murdered 10 innocent people, including a child, who were guilty of nothing more than doing everyday things like shopping or pumping gas.  We are talking about sick, col blooded calculted murder. And now you mean to tell me that you think this guy should continue to live? You want him to live in some cozy prison, eating 3 square meals a day, shooting hoops, lifting weights, watching cable tv......while the victims families will never see their loved ones again? That is outrageous. Justice needs to be served....he needs to meet the same fate as his victims.

2. Democracy, huh? So you say George W Bush was elected by the majority of your citizens? I highly doubt that. In democracy, Al Gore should have become a president.

If you are referring to the vote counts in Florida, it was STILL in George Bush's favor.  Several separate sets of journalists sat down and counted the ballots and Al Gore still lost.
