If you had to choice what you are between a regional choice, let's say a New Yorker or someone from Wurttemburg or between a United States Citizen or German, what would your first pick be? The region that you are from or the nation?

I haven't answered the poll yet. I'm leery of both religious ideology and flag-waving nationalism. If I had my way, I'd be independently wealthy and a world traveler.

My nation is what guarantees my rights in this world, to a degree - and in a limited area. It is a tool i would find hard without.

My nation. The only American state I feel any special bond with is my mother-state, Maryland. I don't have an iota of loyalty to the state I currently live in.

If Maryland seceded from the Union, I'm not sure what I'd do, but I suspect my logic and my desire to live to see old age would make the choice for me.

But what is a nation but a harmonized set of regions under one system? When choosing your region in a way you are also choosing your country.

On reflection I think it would be my country. It's where I live and so what it is and how it acts is important to me even if at times I may disagree with some actions and attitudes.
