How the hell can we be the greatest nation on earth given all this? I mean I know everyone wants to say so, but the reality behind the numbers should be telling us something.

Depends on what variables you hold to come to the conclusion that we are the "greatest"

The guy in this video sums it up better than I ever could:
The question is not whether the USA is the greatest its ever been nor is the USA utopia, but greater than other countries. The answer is yes for too many reasons to list.
The media, schools and the overall epidemic of self pity, whining and expecting something for nothing have lead to the extraordinary reality of so far a majority are answering no.
I think those members should then say what country they want to move to or otherwise think is greater.
I havent seen any suggestions for a country better than the US yet. Those freedom rankings are pretty much junk we get down graded because we actually lock up our criminals instead of letting them run the streets and we get down graded on freedom of speech for allowing protections to classified information yet countries where you can go to jail for stupid tweets are ranked higher.
The never ending underlying issue will always be that minorities in what are considered "Cultural European home base" countries (US/Australia/UK/Canada/Germany/France) will never truly be accepted into white European cultures core just as white Europeans would never be accepted into black Africans cultures core and this creates an impossible-to-fill void within such minorities who feel they should eventually gain "access" to the American white European culture when truth is they were never ever going to be truly let in, even by the most liberal of whites.
Antibiotics: A Scottish guy.
Internal Combustion engine: Belgian
Telephone: Scottish guy in Canada
Microchip: British guy
Television: A brit, a German, and a Scot invented the precursors, a pair of Russians invented the first television based on their work.
Computer: A brit if you count Babbage, Turing, or Flowers. A German if you go with Kuse.
Cars: a German
Light Bulbs: Americans
On that list, the US has TWO things. Hell, the first personal computer was made by Italians. We often assume things are invented by Americans, when they aren't.
