If it isnt great, all you have to do is look at what we had back when it was great and compare to what we have now.

Freedom: What aspects of the US would you say were better back then in comparison to now?
Preston says2015-08-31T18:50:28.9407031Z
Is yes an answer. Also @Freedom, if you think we are weaker now then you are an idiot. We now maintain nuclear weapons more powerful then 'Back then', we also are able to destroy the infrastructure of countries without killing anyone, through virtual warfare. We maintain the majority of internet hubs, and have shrunk the world.

@komodo, read my comment, name something that is weaker, honestly i cant tell you why we arent weaker, i can tell you we are stronger though.

Preston: I agree, the US is far greater now then before. I just wanted to see what Freedom thought was so great about the past which isnt pressent now.

Why are you spamming so many polls all at once?

“Can you say why America is the greatest country in the world? It’s not the greatest country in the world. That’s my answer… [turns to a panelist] Sharon, the NEA is a loser. Yeah, it accounts for a penny out of our paycheck, but he gets to hit you with it anytime he wants. It doesn't cost money, it costs votes. It costs airtime and column inches. You know why people don't like liberals? Because they lose. If liberals are so fucking smart, how come they lose so goddamn always? [turns to another panelist] And with a straight face, you're gonna tell students that America is so star-spangled awesome that we’re the only ones in the world who have freedom? Canada has freedom. Japan has freedom. The UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium has freedom! So, 207 sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom. [turns to the student who asked the question] And yeah, you… sorority girl. Just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know. One of them is: there’s absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force and number 4 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 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies. Now, 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 fuck you're talking about! Yosemite?! It sure used to be… We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reason. We passed laws, struck down laws, for moral reason. We waged wars on poverty, not on poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were and we never beat our chest. We built great, big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases and we cultivated the world’s greatest artists AND the world’s greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn't belittle it. It didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election and we didn’t scare so easy. We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed… by great men, men who were revered. First step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore. THIS IS FOR YOU fREEDOMBEFOREEQUALITY...JUST READ AND THINK, I PROMISE IT DOESN'T HURT.
