Not only do we have guns and stuff, but we have like freedom and stuff and our little dude is an eagle. A goddamn eagle. I dunno i just think that's pretty cool.
henryajevans

Con

It is at the bottom of most developed countries in most categories, other than incarceration rate, defense spending and national debt size.

Ya know, but the funny thing about that is we have eagles. What other country has eagles? I win. Argument over.
henryajevans

Con

Loads of other countries have better coats of arms.

Mexico has not just got an eagle, but it's eating a snake.

Germany's also got an eagle.

So has Poland, Russia, Romania, France, Austria, Serbia and others.

Other countries have lions, which are much better, and Wales and Portugal have dragons.
