What’s So Great About America?: There are plenty of people out there who believe that America is the root of all evil and they can reel off a list of our faults as long as your arm.

Off the top of my head, I can come up with slavery, slaughtering the Indians, goading the Mexicans into a war and taking their land, killing tens of thousands of people in the Philippines, slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws, not allowing women to vote for quite a bit our history, and all sorts of dirty deeds that we engaged in while fighting the Soviets in the Cold War.
So, given that all of this is true, how is it that I can look you straight in the eye and tell you that, “America stands head and shoulders above any other country that exists or has ever existed?” (Cont)
