Well they tried to divide and that was called the CIVIL WAR. Then the government decided it was far better to kill off thousands of it's own people rather than lose the land that it stole from the native Americans. So what does that tell you?

Best Answer

I don't know WHAT to think about us anymore --

Best Answer

from USA to *** <br />
(associated states of stupidity ;)

Best Answer

a lot of Americans are acting pretty stupid these days--

Best Answer

we have our share of problems, but we're still made of people from all points of the globe and somehow make it work. dissenting voices are part of what makes America the greatest country in the world. everyone agreeing will just never happen in any country. at least you''re not jailed for voicing a dissenting opinion here, like in many places.

Best Answer

I agree with you that dissenting voices are part of what makes America great BUT the personal attacks on each other for differing opinions is awful -- and that is why I feel we are no longer united -- SUCH disrespect for anyone with different views

Best Answer

too true. disrespect is rampant. i blame political correctness and a generation of people who never got proper discipline as kids. it's just a fact that everybody isn't wonderful and a good *** whipping is just what some kids need.

Best Answer

I certainly wouldn't go so far as to call America the "greatest country in the world". I mean there are dissenting voices in countries across the developed world, it isn't like if you go outside of America you're automatically in some hostile land where if you stick your tongue out at a poster of their president you get the electric chair or something. Freedom of speech is pretty much the norm for the first-world nations. And most of them don't have a Patriot Act to give their governments police state powers like in America where the government can tap your phone without a warrant, read your e-mail without a warrant, read your snail mail without a warrant, demand to know your library check-outs without a warrant then bar the librarian from ever telling you, demand to see your medical records without a warrant, and designate you an "enemy combatant" on the whim of a Washington bureaucrat who has never met you, kidnap you in the middle of the night, whisk you away to some C.I.A. dungeon to be tortured, er, sorry, "robustly interrogated" to death or left to rot in a dog kennel in Gitmo, all without a shred of due process...


Sorry but that's pretty effing far from being a free country. There are plenty of countries out there with a lot more freedom than the U.S.


Add to that the fact that among the developed first-world nations America has the highest infant mortality rate, the worst worker rights (basically NO worker rights), the most anemic and pissant social safety net, the highest crime rate, the most people incarcerated (2 million and climbing), the most ridiculous kangaroo court judicial system, the most unrepresentative and corrupt government that is basically a giant graft machine, the worst health care system which is also the most expensive health care system in the world, the worst educational system with the test scores to match, the worst differential between rich and poor and the least social mobility, meaning it is harder for a poor American to lift himself out of poverty than it is for a poor German, Frenchman, Brit, Canadian or whatever. Considering all of the above it would be pretty effing difficult to argue that the United States is the greatest country in the world. Putting twenty million gaudy flags on everything from a bank to a sex toy shop to a garbage dump does not make a place the greatest country on earth, sorry.

Best Answer

Idk, you take a jab at us and we come at you like a swarm of fire ants. ID say we're mighty united then.

Best Answer

I think you're probably right -- but it's a shame that that's what it takes to stop the squabbling

Best Answer

Yeah, that "swarm of fire ants" with the most expensive military in the world has been made to look like fools for about a decade now thanks to a bunch of illiterate Afghan hillbillies with no air force, old rifles and homemade bombs...

Best Answer

I disagree. The name should stay the same.<br />
We quibble and fight like any family but we are pretty united when it comes down to it.

Best Answer

I sure hope so, but lately its not looking so good -- sad

Best Answer

we are "united" in that our federal government-which originates from the various states (not the other way around) will treat with other nations on our behalf, and will protect the various states from forces abroad.

Best Answer

Best Answer

Actually if it came right down to it, yes we are.. <br />
On a day to day basis of living and the government and what not all messed up<br />
