Do you like your country? Why?

My feelings are mixed. I both love my country, and I hate it. It's because I love some parts of it, but hate other parts of it. The U.S.A. is very large and has a huge variety of environments / weather systems, cultures, and languages -- so there is plenty of room for good, bad, and in-between.

I love how I can stay in my own country and see a forest, or visit a desert, or roam a plain, or climb mountains. I love most of the people -- those who have ancestry here from long ago, those who are first- or second-generation U.S. citizens, those who are immigrants, and those who are visitors. I take a lot of joy in knowing them all. I love the food, and all the scattered little towns, the regional dialects. I love that I could have an education for free growing up.

I don't love some of the hatred toward other people (of a different skin color, or originally from overseas, etc.) which runs through parts of my country. I don't love the violence aimed at particular minority groups, and how some past atrocities were swept under the rug. I don't love how there seems to be a rampant "either / or" mentality where people seem unable to compromise, and so on. These things make my heart ache. Though I know, too, most countries are not free from similar sins. I still hate that we have it here.

yes and No.
I like my country because we have one of most powerful armies in the middle east that can defend us against terrorists. we have low crime rate and most people help each other during accidents like car accidents, fights, etc.
I don't like it because of the traditions and religion stuff. most people if not all of them have some kind of dogma and you can't criticize them or act against their rules. you should just follow them.
