What makes the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA so great

Postby ToddStlluvsBacon on Apr 15 2018, 9:18pm

There is no country on this Earth, that comes even remotely close in being as self-critical & reciprocal to new thoughts & ideas as the USA.

Unlike most parts of Europe, especially, Scandinavian Countries, the USA has a hugely diverse populous. USA not only has 10X the population of all of Scandinavia put together but, also has people from all over the World who have made USA their home. Of 254 Countries in the World, USA has people from over 198 of them. The cultural diversity these immigrants bring with them while fusing with the American way of life, is what makes USA the microcosm of Modern Human Society. When people of so many different Nationalities huddle together there is going to be some friction, given each one of them offers their own cultural perspective to a trigger & reacts as per their ethnic moorings. This is especially true with first generation, and to a certain extent with 2nd generation Immigrants to the USA, despite of these extremes in cultural observance, very rarely do you hear of immigrants wanting to go back to the Nation of their origin because they have a hard time assimilating. In the USA you have the freedom to retain your individuality while keeping your cultural identity without losing your place in the larger mix. Immigrants to USA dont need to renounce their ethnocultural identity to become an American. Compare this with countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh ...many countries in Europe and Africa and South America where almost everybody practical shares same or very similar history, culture, racial makeup and yet find reasons to divide and segregate themselves. The USA is hands down no1 nation on Earth for creating wealth. Not only that but In absolute dollar terms USA is the Worlds largest benefactor. In 2017 USA spent 50,100,000,000 in foreign aid, 1% of the Federal budget. USA is the engine of innovation and ranks no. 1 in wealth creation. Many illegal immigrants come here and become wealthy in a very short period of time, if they're ambitious enough. This doesn't happen anywhere else in the world. With over 181 ranked institutions USA is at the top of the heap of Countries with best Universities in the World. Again when it comes to the Best medical Schools in the World, USA ranks no. 1. This story repeats over and over again in every field, be it Sports, Medicine, Science & Technology, Business, Enterprise, Entertainment, Media etc. etc. etc. And despite of these achievements Americans owing to their self-critical nature always look for flaws in their system with the purpose of improving it. In the obsession with finding faults, people will sometimes wrongly compare USA to countries like Sweden. Countries that don't have the same cultural diversity as the USA or its size and diversity of population. The people that keep touting about Sweden's or Canada's vaunted Healthcare, have no idea what actually goes on here. The USA is the only country in the World that offers emergency medical care without ever inquiring you about your nationality or citizenship status. The Emer­gency Med­ical Treat­ment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), which pre­vents hos­pi­tals from turn­ing away unin­sured patients in need of emer­gency treat­ment, encom­passes childbirth prenatal care, and deliv­ery, Most “emer­gency” health care ser­vices used by undoc­u­mented immi­grants are related to child­birth. In some states, undoc­u­mented immi­grants may account for as much as 99% of Emer­gency Med­ic­aid expen­di­tures; approx­i­mately 80% of these costs are related to child­birth or to com­pli­ca­tions of preg­nancy and labor. Yes, there are instances where people abuse USA's generosity but that does not stop USA from being generous & by holding high moral grounds of valuing each & every life that seeks its refuge. There is no denying that USA is not without its own share of problems. I'm the first to admit it, but those problems fail in comparison to the virtues that USA possess. To sum it up. You have the freedom to be whoever you want to be. To think whatever you want to think, even if you hate the USA. Hate it as much as you want and still get wealthy doing so.

This is what makes the USA the best country in the World.

Except that the best is Switzerland. The United States is ranked 8th best, which isn’t bad, but it’s surely not the best.

All country's suck. We live in a crappy day and age. Picking #1 Out of all of the options is like choosing which ones the shiniest turd. Polish them all you want, you're still polishing a lump of crap
