    To answer your question: No, America is not the greatest nation on Earth. I don't believe there is such a thing, 'cause even when people get nostalgic of the 1950's, they're remembering it from the perspective of the white man, like my grandfather who ruled his house without question. Women, children and minorities were objects to be molded and manipulated by men like my grandfather. But even since that time, even with the social progress that has been made, women still are not being paid at an equal level that men are, minorities are still being targeted and abused more than whites and our laws have gotten so draconian in response to terrorist attacks that American's rights are hollow caricatures and it is getting even worse. What saddens me the most is that things could be so much better for all of us if enough people at the top got behind the effort to really change the way America is ran...what is especially saddening is that it isn't going to happen. The powers of influence in Washington far exceed empathy for average everyday Small Town USA folks such as myself.

    - We're the richest. We have more money than any other nation on earth and it ain't close.
    - We're the smartest. We have something like over half of the world's Nobel Prize winners. Our universities are the top ranked in the world.
    - We're the most industrial. Modern industry as you know it was invented and perfected in the US of A.
    - We kick ass. Most powerful military in the history of human civilization relative to our contemporaries
    - We're not sissies - looking at you, France
    - We innovate. We invented pretty much everything in existence in the modern world, and that trend is continuing.
    - We sent a man to the moon for christ's sake. That was 50 years ago. No other nation has yet to be able to do it, even today.
    - We don't have stupid royalty or aristocracies. America is the only country on earth where going rags to riches is truly seen as possible.
    - We dominate the global political scene. If America wants something done, such as a treaty, it gets done.
    - Other nations need us more than we need them.
    - We utterly dominate popular culture and the arts - Hollywood baby. ALL the movies that seen by a broad audience are American. We invented rock and roll, the blues, rap, hip hop, and all the modern media. We invented television, and pretty much everything that goes on it.


    I could go on, but that's a start.

    great list

    i will add another

    we dont quit.....we persevere through good and bad times

    we are a bunch of mutts......with so many cultures, races, ethnicities, and peoples that have been combined into one major kick ass compilation

    yes....we have issues.....any country with 330 million people will

    but dont screw with us.....our bite is much worse than our bark

    Yes, we are militarily the strongest and have wealth, but that doesn't mean we're the greatest country it just means we're strong and have money.

    I think that was kind of his point...

    On a side note, America was founded on racism. It ain't new.

    You're a socialist? Maybe a lot of Americans don't want to share because they instead encourage people to try and be self sufficient, to be men and women for others, not men and women for taking from others.
