100 Million Patriots Standing

I am very courious how you view "What makes a good American?"

Here let me start with a few of mine and later I will more than likely expand as the discussion developes.

First and foremost.... I believe to be an American we most protect freedom for our kids. Yes this means that we should do without some things so that our kids have something to pass to their children. We as American do not need the government to tell us what we should do with or without.

I believe we should as an American show good behavior following just rules of law and challenging those laws that foster corruption and devalues LIFE.

I believe a good American should if capable dedicate some of his life in the Military or efforts supporting the military.

I believe we are obligated to foster free markets as the main defense against big government. We do this by teaching our children that they will compete as an individual American in an environment that will reward effort even if you are handicapped. A good American always finds ways to improve his standing in life, and in turn provides wealth for others to earn if his success supplies jobs to his fellow American.

Please help add to the list.... Be original if you are able.

I agree that military service is a must if only for the discipline received.
Teaching your kids to be righteous and god -fearing love of country citizens.
I believe any good American should pull his/her own weight and not look for handouts.
I think a great american would really work on their marriages instead of divorce at the drop of the hat, as I believe with all my heart that the single parent society is our ultimate doom.

To me the first thing about being a good American is praising God for being able to live in this great nation of ours, if it wasn't for God making this great nation we could not even be able to talk about this subject. If it wasn't for God putting our founding fathers on this great nation, who fought and died for our freedom and liberty, "We the People" could not even think about being free. So please put God at the beginning of your list on how to be a Good American.

Gratitude about what is offered even now in this country. The "99%" bellyaching about not having this or not having that, really??? Travel outside of your comfort zone(even within our U.S. rural areas) and see how many of the real "99%" has no indoor plumbing, air conditioning, televisions, computer/electronics, telephones, any kind of working transportation means and have a daily struggle to gather edible food and safe drinkable water.

"What make America good"? That simple....our Christian character. It is what make US the most charitable nation on earth; it is what makes the most freest nation in history; and believe it or not it is what makes us so concern about our planet...to be good stewart of what God has blessed US with. The best example is that of the Pilgrams and the hardships they endures to plant the first colony in America "for the furtherance of the Gosple".

Knowing what the constitution means, and learning why it was written, and having an astute historical base, helps to stop the loss of the freedoms we have enjoyed.
The 2nd amendment is one thing that needs to be considered carefully by all. . .

Every thing else... written in the "Constitution" was contrived by men, and politicians... "The Words of man can be changed or altered over time..... but the words and gifts of God are perpetual and can never be taken away, unless by force or coercion."

Great post Boot! I think a good American must put God first, lead by example, stand up for the truth, and instill values and morals in our children. The children are the keys to America's future.

Our children are our future. And every year the Liberial school system continues to "un-educate" our children about America's true Christian Heritage and the importance of Biblical morals are to the welfare of this nation, the future away from "what makes America good".

I think that God and family are the core of Americia. We need god in our every day lives. We need to teach our family the love and caring of self, family and others are to be the key to what made this country great.

I was raised to believe American was great because of it's freedoms, it was a place where you could believe in your own way and do most anything you wanted as long as you showed respect, did not lie, steal or physically harm someone. As I grew older I was taught those issues were the foundation on which America was built on.

But what is it that makes for a good American? Someone who respects others, does not lie, steal, cheat or do physical harm to others unless it is for the protection of property, family, others or self.

Exactly John....

To be self reliant enough to free up more time to ensure a secure environment for the family and to serve others.

A good American counts on himself more that Government.
