    I always think of America as great. I personally think we're a greater nation because of some of the things that've happened politically (ie: health reform), but that's just my opinion. We can always improve though.. Make it a greater nation for all peoples.

    Who are the other two?

    But, froggy. I think it's a bit early to start probing the nation for whether or not they think that America is a shadow of its former self. It's undeniably the most powerful nation on earth, but it's only been flexing its muscles for sixty years as a world power.

    There's far more left in the old girl to write her off so early into her infancy.

    Because rationing care, increasing costs, and ensuring people die at younger ages is definitely benefiting society. :cuckoo:

    America is only as good as the people are. And unfortunately we are in a society of incredibly corrupt people. So much so we don't even recognize it most of the time.

    What we need to do is learn how to be honest. We need to learn how to work hard to produce things. We need to take care of our own needs and our families and and stop taking government hands outs.
