Reason One:

Freedom

Freedom isn't just another word for nothing left to lose; it's what this whole damn country's about. It's what makes us great -- and differentiates us from the pack. In 1776, we told the British to piss off, we'll do it ourselves. And for the last two-hundred-plus years, not only have we continued to do it ourselves, we've evolved from a band of ragtag insurgents in funny-looking hats into the global superpower.

We have the freedom to do basically anything we want, as long as it doesn't mess with anyone else's lifestyle or inalienable rights. In other words, you can say, "Screw you, Mr. President!" (which would probably get you killed in some countries). We also have the freedom to buy smutty mags in the market and beer on Sunday, honk at hot chicks, and generally make asses out of ourselves anytime we see fit.
