    I voted 90's
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    The fifties. Economy, satisfaction, morality. That is for me personally and most white heterosexuals I knew.

    Re: Best Decade for America

    None of the above. The correct answer would be "still to come".

    I don't know about that but US car design of the 90's rocks. Now those sharp and cubic shapes of today suck really bad. If we perceive the car design as a reflection of the zeitgeist (spirit of the time), I'd say - the 90's. Besides that was the time to celebrate the wining of the Cold War. The 60's is also a good answer.

    And if you weren't a white heterosexual Christian man it sucked.

    None of the above, the best is still to come.

    Re: Best Decade for America

    Hmmm...the 1960's saw the socialist extremists finally taking the forefront of the Democrat Party, rather than lurking in the background as they had been since Woodrow Wilson.

    The 1960's saw the unprecedented and as yet unmatched triumph of Apollo. A positive, but not enough to outweigh the listed negative.

    The 1970's saw a President with the class to resign, WIN Buttons, and then the election of the most incompetent president ever, who told Americans their day in the sun was over and they'd have to learn how to permanently do with less.

    The movie Star Wars came out.

    With two negatives like that, clearly the 70's weren't going well.

    The 1980's saw the election of Ronald Reagan, the end of Carter's economic malaise, the death of the Evil Empire. Rush Limbaugh redefined AM talk radio.

    No negatives happened in the 1980's.

    The 1990's saw a President committing perjury and lacking the respect for the Office to resign. This president was also documented getting a blowjob under the desk while on the telephone discussing troop movements in combat. Until the 2008 election, Clinton was the most corrupt president in the history of the nation. He squandered the peace dividend and the nation's position as global leader and sole superpower. The media's blatant bias to the left became inescapable, yet the rise of the Internet finally gave the people alternative sources.

    The Kyoto Protocol was rejected 98-0 by the US Senate.

    That one good item does not outweigh the evil of the Clintons and the shadow they cast on the nation.

    The year 2000 saw the election of GW Bush and the attempt by Al Gore to steal that election. 9-11, the PATRIOT Act, the TSA, the DHS, the renewed refusal to close the US borders to invaders and the continued refusal to send the invaders home, including actions by the DHS to interfere with Invader Roundups in Los Angeles for purely political reasons. The justified war in Afghanistan, the bogus war in Iraq. Bush's innate leftism expands government. His refusal to act allows the mistakes of earlier presidents, FDR, Carter, and Clinton, to be precise, to culminate in the Depression of 2008. Bush's refusal to allow new drilling in the US, electing instead to continue the idiocy of buying offshore oil and stuffing it in a hole in the ground, as if the US didn't already have oil in the ground that we desperately needed to send holes to. The nomination of John McCain. The election of Obama.

    Bush removed the US signature from the Kyoto Accords.

    Clearly doing only one thing right can't make the 2000's a good decade.

    Obama is president in the 2010's, that means the 2010's cannot be a good decade.

    So, clearly, the 1980's win out, hands down.

    =======

    The real question that should be answered is:

    How many of those decades did the respondant live through?
