America being the best country in the world doesn't need to change to be like inferior countries.

Posted by: xhammy

Just some logic.

  • Yes, does not need to change others need to change to be like it.

  • It needs to be more like countries in the UN, like the UK.... Which it was founded in rebellion of....

  • America is the best country... I speak from experience. The only change needed is for it to return to it's former self. Please don't bring up slavery or any other odd-ball topic because: Obviously no country or country's policies are or were perfect, but America is vastly superior to any other country.

  • Apparently if you create a ranking system with your values on top ... youre always going to top the list. And apparently that list is supposed to be enough to make other countries want to be like you? Just so they can win at some goals you set? Sounds like just trying to make the list means youve already lost.

  • There are so many places where we are demonstrably NOT the best in the world. It seems logical to change where we are worse, or falling.

  • Their are some aspects that we can improve upon. If their is another country out there that is better than us in a category, it doesn't hurt to take some pointers from them.

  • New Zealand is the second best country in the world *cough cough* America isn't even in the top 10.

  • Intense patriotism like this is why America has fallen so drastically from grace. Learn from other countries. We aren't perfect.

  • How can you call a country, where saying gays should be treated equally is controversial, superior to ANYONE else?

  • Well, I don't think we should model ourselves off of other countries and adopt their forms of government and economic system, but that doesn't mean we can't look at some countries for suggestions. I like the UK political system because they actually talk about issues that matter like the economy. In the US, some of us focus way too much on abortion, gay marriage, etc.

  • Its good to learn from others and fix things we do ering or come uo eoth our own solutions. Calling the country blindly perfect no matter ehat and saying no change is needed is just ridiculous.

Notice the statement said: "America being the best country in the world doesn't need to change to be like inferior countries." It didn't ask if America could be improved upon, but whether it should change to more closely resemble an inferior country.

It depends, US has some aspects where it needs to change. There are other aspects where it could remain as it is.

@Scratch "America is the best country... I speak from experience." you've done a lot of travailing have you? Anyway, How is it "vastly superior"? Is it because it has the largest military?

This is not in question. American is not the "best" objectively.

@reece wouldn't be surprised.

Too late.

"Intense patriotism like this is why America has fallen so drastically from grace. Learn from other countries. We aren't perfect." I disagree. North Koreans think they live in the best country in the world ... And thats all that matters.

My response was to 'reese' " submitted to be observed". Therefore my comments will have to wait for an other day.

That means it'll never get posted, so don't hold your breath.

Submitted for Moderation means it went straight to Michael Scott's 'Special Filing Cabinet'.
