This is America. Just because you get more votes, it doesn't mean you win.
FOX MULDER, The X-Files, "Three Words" (2001)
I love America. No one is responsible for what they do.
EMIL SLOVAK, 15 Minutes (2001)
I like America. Name me another society that's gone from barbarism to decadence without bothering to create a civilization in between.
LORD DARLINGTON, A Good Woman (2004)
America should be free ground, all of it, from here to the Pacific Ocean. No man has to bow, no man born to royalty. Here we judge you by what you do, not by who your father was. Here you can be something. Here is the place to build a home. But it's not the land. There's always more land. It's the idea that we all have value, you and me. What we're fighting for, in the end...we're fighting for each other.
COLONEL JOSHUA LAWRENCE CHAMBERLAIN, Gettysburg (1993)
That's part of our history: America always has to melt away the differences between people.
HOWARD MALLOY, Jigsaw (1949)
America was founded on the notion that a person should be free to follow his or her own destiny. But we can't do that if we're living in fear of our own government. We need to reclaim this country for free men and women everywhere.
SUPERMAN, Justice League: The New Frontier (2008)
This is America, anything is possible!
KURZON BHAI PATEL, Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003)
The United States of America: rich, diverse, well-fed, proud, free. The United States of America: poor, hungry, scared, oppressed. There are those who say the United States is an empire, a dictatorship possessing fascistic elements. There are others who insist it's a democracy, or a representative republic, the realized dream of the founding fathers. Can both assessments be correct? How can the nation known as the United States of America be both? How can there be two totally different views of the same thing? Is America an empire, or a democracy, or somewhere in-between?
NARRATOR, Liberty Bound (2004)
America a very funny place, full of prayers and money.
NAUTAUNG, Never So Few (1959)
Americans traditionally love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, big league ball players, the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost, and will never lose a war... because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.
GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON, JR., Patton (1970)
