List Rules Vote up what you believe to be the greatest things about America. List includes things and ideas, not individual people.

What makes America great? Well, a lot of things. The U.S. Constitution for starters. Our incredibly creative citizens, entrepreneurial spirit, free speech, gun rights. Oh and add the freedom to marry whomever you please and this list of the best things about America is looking pretty long. The United States isn't perfect – no one outside of Lee Greenwood and maybe these weird guys running for President ever claimed it to be. Still, America is one of the most unique countries in the history of the world. Given the long list of great things about America below, that doesn't seem like too lofty of a statement.

There are many great things for which Americans can feel proud, here are several of them. Feel free to add to the list if you are feeling patriotic and want to share with others!
