    Hawaii is indeed ours! And we've got a grip on a few islands in the Caribbean.

    To the list, I'd add Yellowstone, the desert southwest, the Rocky Mountains, Disneyland, and a peaceful handoff of government from administration to administration.

  • WeaselMomma


    Hmmm, I love your list. United States Marines are a big favorite of mine and some nice eye candy to boot.
    I would have to add the 21st amendment to the list.

    I'm Canadian, so I'll throw in Target.

    We don't have Target up here.

    Well, let's see…

    I sat here and thought for a few minutes about what exactly it is that I'm most thankful for as an American, and it all basically boils down to one thing.

    I'm thankful that America is still one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. I worry how much longer that will be the case.

    In God We Trust, and by God we are blessed, and free, and kept.

    Play ball!

    rolling rock is a really good reason to love being american.
    i live in the "great lakes" state. the problem with those lakes…they're really cold and smell like dead fish. just putting that out there πŸ™‚
    happy 4th. here's hoping that illegal fireworks don't burn down our houses. that would suck.

    ABBA. Wait, they're not American.

    I've got it—Monty Python.

    What?? Really?? Damn!! Give me a minute.

    Great List! So many to add to it but so little time. Good start though. God Bless America! – Jason

    Redwood trees and mountain laurel. As for those Maryland crab cakes? Hey, Maryland's state song (I grew up there, and they don't teach you the later verses in elementary school) still calls Lincoln a despot; it's a flamingly secessionist piece sung to the plodding tune of "Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree." Long live freedom of speech!

    I just went to the Grand Canyon for the first time in my life and WOW! you're right about that one. (And if you've never hiked down into the canyon, do it! Or at least take a rafting trip through it! Don't just "peek over the edge," as most people do.)

  • Jaimie


    I love America because we have some pretty awesome people that put their lives on the line EVERYDAY to protect people they don't even know, and we ARE America because of them!

  • Mum-me


    Well I love America because my mum was born there, and if there was no America we would have nothing to watch on TV here in Australia.

    Well, we do make some fantastic home-grown TV shows, but not enough.

    I love ER.

  • WeaselMomma


    I love the Piper and her comment.

  • OhCaptain


    Very cool list!

    I'd add rock-n-roll.
    Peanut Butter.
    And a Constitution that rocks like no other.

    Thanks for the post!

    I think you inadvertently forgot the Ford Escort.

  • Bean


    Rolling Rock is the beer of suds sisters.

  • Lisa@verybusymomwith4


    As wife of a marine, I saw BRAVO to this list but…you forgot Texas and college football (the real football πŸ˜‰ )

  • Lynette


    Oh Yes, I would totally put the Marines on the list of why I love America…that & #'s 1 and 2.

    Also…Football and home made ice cream. Mmm…

  • Marinka


    You had me until "Rolling Rock". Smart thinking putting it last.

  • James (SeattleDad)


    Great list. At this point I would also add Starbucks, but that is just because I want an Iced Mocha right now.

    And Baseball can't be topped!

  • Maureen


    The Mall of America. My daughter's favorite tourist attraction of yours.

    Happy Belated Fourth!

  • Heather


    Okay, well I can't say it any better than Piper. She said it perfectly. πŸ™‚

  • Cheffie-Mom

    I was going to say beer but then I saw rolling rock. Great list. Vegas wooo. I got to go with football over baseball though.

  • momma


    Great List!!! There are so many things I love about this great nation of ours…most importantly freedom of religion and the right to believe whatever I want without fear of government punishment! We rock!!!

    My list would include:
    The Rocky Mountains
    Cedar Point (Sandusky, Ohio)
    Reese's Pieces
    CCW Permits
    Government funded Student Loans
    and so much more!!!

    Happy Belated 4th!
