American Pride

A recent Rasmussen Report survey shows most Americans are proud of their country.

In the pre-4th of July survey, sixty four (64) percent say other nations would be wise to become more like the United States. Whites and Republicans (84/91%) are much more positive in their attitudes toward American history than African-Americans (44%)and Democrats (64%) are when considering this country as a role model for the world.

It seems Senator Phil Gramm may have overstated the issue when he called the U.S. a nation of whiners. Republicans (72%) believe America is the land of liberty and justice for all, while Dems (29%) see our country this way.

As these poll suggests, the whining Gramm talks of is clearly concentrated on one side of the aisle.
