During the Fourth of July this year, I got into an argument with a cousin of mine. She said something to the affect of "this is not a great country."
I think that all things considered, we are the greatest (maybe not in history), but without a doubt currently. Obviously, our military is the dominant force in the world, and we are the most important members of most diplomatic relationships (UN, NATO, etc.). But further then that, we drive the global economy, we are by far the most innovative and inventive of any nation. Finally, our culture, without a doubt, is the biggest player in the world. You can go virtually anywhere and buy a pair of blue jeans. Additionally, nearly all of the chart-topping movies are made by Americans, as is most of the music.
Wouldn't you agree that these things combined unquestionably make us the greatest country on earth? This is more then pure patriotism.
If you say no, PLEASE comment with the country which you think is greatest, and why.
