In which our heroine presents 23 Great MERICA! moments & (some genuinely awesome American things).

I love America. I’m proud to be an American. There’s no country I’d rather be from & be in.

I’m saying this now so no one gets me twisted. I LOVE MY COUNTRY. Warts & all, greatest country ever.

That said, we all know that there are actually 2 Americas: America & MERICA! . This graphic perfectly outlines the differences between the two for those who are maybe unfamiliar with the subtle nuances:
