Despite having a LOT of morals, was America EVER really the best country or the "land of the free?"

Not that they aren't a great country.

America was never the greatest country on Earth

^Disagree. We had the most free constitution at one point in time, next to the magna carta

So? Not much to prove we are the best country on Earth.

Its an opinionated question, so I gave an opinionated answer. Give me a reason why its not

"Depends on how you weigh the pros and cons" Are you saying they are fat?

I agree with Comrade Silly

The reason America is not the greatest country in the world: America is seventh in literacy, twenty-seventh in math, twenty-second in science, forty-ninth in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, third in median household income, number four in labor force, and number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next twenty-six countries combined, twenty-five of whom are allies. None of this is the fault of a 20-year-old college student, but you, nonetheless, are without a doubt, a member of the WORST-period-GENERATION-period-EVER-period, so when you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the f*ck you're talking about?!

Rebuttal Jifpop?

Jif why do you spend so much time talking about how great other countries and regimes were if all along your were a red white and blue patriot?
ArcTImes says2014-04-26T15:46:52.8996647-05:00
Lol

I meant that today they do. Today they have a lot more morals. Back then, they absolutely did not.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-29T00:56:10.8843200-05:00
Other countries are great Macgreggor, but I have pride for my country just as you o for Germany. That's why I think were the best. To innocent patriotism.

I'd consider the main country that created the USA to be greater.
