The economic, military and cultural premier player of the 20th century, the USA is a big place with many types of people. A place of contradictions, the populace of the self appointed “land of the free” seldom has over 2 weeks of vacation a year, often works over 50 hours a week and is in significant amounts of debt at any given time. A nation whose populace is the fattest in human history and is still somehow getting fatter, the USA is the birthplace of the airplane, basketball, the latest three major musical innovations (jazz, rock, rap), the major motion picture, as well as a plethora of writers, scientists, activists, philosophers, inventors and other people of note. For this reason, the USA is imitated by people in many parts of the world even while many of them hate it. Claims that the USA is a threat to world peace and stability are not unfounded.
Regarding the USA - don’t believe everything you see on TV.

A country with a hugely negative connotation to its name amongst the peoples of the world. A country thats reputation has been completely ruined and shot down by George W. Bush, and even in part by Ronald Reagan, even if he was ten times the president Bush will ever be. A country that is basically %10 retards, %90 good, wholesome people. A country with MANY accents, not just one loud and annoying one. Spanish, Jersey, New York, Boston, Northwestern, Northeastern, Southern, Indian, Middle-Eastern (as in, the Middle East, other side of the globe,) Mid-Western, all these types of accents and more. So don't bother assuming we all have the same accents. I know there are many variations of accents in the U.K. I know there are differences in Australian accents. I know the difference between the U.K, Britain, and England. So do a lot of people who inhabit the U.S.A. We're not all a bunch of self-righteous pricks who go parading around exclaiming our superiority out of every country in the world. Approximately %15 percent of us support our moronic President, and only about %10 of us support our horrific Congress. Did you get that? NOT ALL OF US SUPPORT OUR GOVERNMENT.

Yes, our measuring system is different from the worlds. Haha, guess what, we're not the only country who has a different system. Will you tell the kids in our schools that they are "learning wrong" and are "fucking idiots"? I don't think so. You say we spell wrong. We don't add u's to a lot of our words. Just because we're different doesn't mean we're wrong and stupid, and before you say "dat iz how dey orignaily rote stuffz wen english wuz cretaed!1" then so be it. Many things have started out as one big thing and then things change. Take, I don't know, the Catholic Church. Different branches of religion. Will you call everybody but Catholics "wrong" because they don't do it "the original way?" Nope.

It is a country sans-racism in most parts. It is a country full of loving, helping people. It is a country of educated, creative, and insightful people. It is a very diverse country with probably every culture from around the world mingled into our big ol' melting pot of a country. It is a country that understands that the rest of the world is NOT full of smelly, snooty people. We understand that South America does not equal "Jungle wasteland with monkeys and tall amazonian womenz." We understand that Europe is not only inhabited by "snobby pricks with weird accents who hate america" (Admittedly, a nice chunk of Europe hates us.) We understand that Asia is a) Not a country, and b) Not consisting of "a bunch of slanty-eyed funny-accented math geeks."

We are not an ignorant people. Before you say "but ur newz stationz only sho u guyz newz corresponding to UR CUNTRY!111," we are well aware of that. We know what goes on in the world for the most part, thanks to the Internet and BBC America. We don't think of the French as smelly, nor of the English as snooty, nor of Australians as good surfers, nor of Asians as dorks, nor of Muslims as terrorists, nor of Brazilians as good soccer players, nor of Latinos as drug-smugglers who make spicy food, nor of Canadians as backwards liberalists, nor of Russians as commies, nor of Africans as aids-ridden mites, no matter what anybody else says. Yes we have our share of ignorant people who think like that, but are you going to tell me that America is the ONLY COUNTRY that has people who think like this? Not likely.

If our government is in the Middle-East for oil, that is our government, and NOT us, the populace. If our government plotted against us in the 9/11 attacks, that is our GOVERNMENT, not the populace. If our government takes people from other nations and torture them, that is our GOVERNMENT, and NOT us. If our government keeps sending countless amounts of men and women into the Middle-East for an oil war, that is, again, our GOVERNMENT, AND NOT US.

If you have encountered a stupid American traveling to your country, then don't let that be the only example of American that you use. I've met countless of ignorant British, Australian, French, Canadian tourists, but I know that they THEMSELVES are stupid, and NOT the people they represent.

We have great athletes, we have great schools,(Our public, PUBLIC, education system is bad, but we have some of the finest universities in the world.) we have wonderful artists, we have good businessmen/women. We have good and bad, just like YOUR country has good and bad.

Most of us love the world and its cultures. Most of the world hates us and our culture. As if we only had one definitive culture.

If you hate America, then you are an ignorant prick. I feel sorry for you. I will NEVER hate an entire people based on the actions of one group or one part of them. Get your act together.
I live in the USA and love my country.

A great country with a great military. We arent racist, we dont think we are #1. We dont brag about everything and we joined in WW2 because we thought we would be able to help. not because we wanted the right to say we won it. 99.9# of the people who say these things are douchebags who do not know what they are talking about.
I love living in the USA.

The United States of America is a constitutional republic in North America, made of 50 states and Puerto Rico. It began in the 1600's when English Puritans came to the new world to escape religious persecution. The settlers established 13 colonies, now known as New England. In the late 18th century, the Americans rebelled against England. With the help of France, the Americans won the war and their independence.

Unfortunately, it took many years for the American government to recognize civil rights written by the Founding Fathers years before. Women were not given rights until the early 20th century. Black people were persecuted until the 60's. And even today, homosexual couples can only marry in Massachusetts. This is because of the incredibly Christian government America has. They believe gay marriage isn't what God allows as marriage. And they fail to realize that the Founding Fathers separated church and state.

America is rapidly becoming a target for hatred all around the world. The USA saved many people in the World Wars, but Its reputation was shattered with the presidency of George W. Bush. He invaded two countries (Afghanistan and Iraq) simply because they were Islamic nations and the man who sent people to attack the USA was a jihadist. Many countries fail to realize that the US government is responsible for the invasion, not the American people.

With prices rising, rights fading, and religious nuts controlling the country, the USA is slowly headed towards feudalism. In a hundred years, citizens of America may be living in the same conditions as medeival Europeans. But if we rise against the government, the USA will once again become a democracy.
The USA is an amazing country with a terrible government.

The most amazing and free country on the face of this planet that spreads the torch of liberty and shoves it up other country's asses, with pride. The country that will beast China and Russia if they ever get into a conflict. A country that everyone is envious to inhabit.

United States of America, a Federal Republic in the western hemisphere. The populace is considered to be a brutish, war-mongering bunch. This is the result of European regression.
For the allied powers, it was critical for an assured victory that the USA enter the war.

A country with origins in the 13 colonies of England. Over the centuries it became the only superpower country in the world after winning the cold war. Many a population around the world hate the USA because our reputation has been tarnished extremely by President George Bush. But many people who hate america are ignorant because they don't understand that the majority of the country are good natured, intelligent people. But for some reason, many people think we are all fat, mcdonalds eating hicks. This accusation is wrong. We (not including bush) put our brave men and women in danger only when our people are in danger, ie. Afghanistan, Germany, Japan, Civil War. We were one of the first countries to have a republic and we will defend it with our lives. And McDonalds are fucking in EVERY country basically, so why are we the fat asses.
English Guy: Hey look its an american, i bet his family are all fat arse mcdonald eating hicks, fuck USA.

American: No, you are ignorant, the only Americans you hear about are the bad ones. Which are the minority.

English Guy: Shut up fat arse mcdonald eater.

American: (Proceeds to beat the shit out of the english man)
