    This country is not worth defending. Change my mind

    Iíve been the biggest patriot for the longest time. However, life is cruel and Iíve begun to rethink it. What makes this country worth defending. We live in a society that is disgusting. Our society defines you by your past even if you made a genuine mistake. You have people trying to strip the constitution. You have truly degenerate behavior left and right, etc. What makes this country great? What still makes it worth defending?

    I live my life with the concept that you absolutely find what you are looking for. When all you are looking for is bad, disgusting, and worthless, that is all you see.

    I look for the good in life, and I find fine people all around me that work hard, live honest lives, stay loyal to their families, treat their spouses with kindness and respect, and wake up every morning glad they live in the U.S. Every day I find a new reason to keep moving forward and be proud of this country.

    If you can't find that where you are at, then maybe you need to look somewhere else.

    There have been PLENTY of times in our history of the United States that it has been FAR worse than it is now.

    Ex-Pats doing it every day. Maybe some time abroad, living under the freedoms other countries provide, will change your mind.
    I like it here and things are cyclical. If Im gonna have to fight the zombie hoards, I would just assume doing so, on my particular piece dirt.

    If there are 10 good people here, this country is worth defending.

    Just because it has some shit heads doesnít mean the country as a whole is lost. Go move to Syria or something.

    The nation IS worth defending.

    Most BLUE county residents? NOT so much...
