    I know that America is without a doubt the greatest nation in the history of mankind, because of capitalism, freedom, and the principles the Founders believed in. However, I'd like to hear both sides.

    No choice for "don't know"?

    Yanno those "best of (insert city)" polls run by local publications?

    There's one in New Orleans (and maybe others) that includes the category "best place to have a baby" :uhh:
    This question reminds me of that. You'd have to literally experience every country (or every hospital) to answer either one.

    Far as I'm concerned the "best" country on earth is whatever one I'm in at the moment. I make the most of it.

    sure its the greatest since inception . Going downhill these last 40-50 years though . Too many laws , rules , regulation at all levels since i first noticed in 1964 or 1965 when i noticed government infringements on my personal Freedom . Plus the USA government has its own goals outside of what the USA Citizens want Donald .

    Okay, so how many other countries have you visited for comparison? I've been to about 55, that's about 1/4 of the world and people think I've traveled a lot.

    Haiti? Why Haiti?
    One of my best and most trusted friends is Haitian. It could happen.
    Too hot though.

    Also, there is no best nation on Earth, different nations have different good and bad attributes, each nation has people who are more comfortable or less comfortable with those good and bad attributes.

    Zackly --- if you're going to declare one is "without doubt" the "greatest" whatever that means, you'd have to be well-versed in every possible alternative. You'd need to intelligently compare Bhutan with Paraguay. Kind of a mindless emotional-fluff question.
