10. I'm sorry, but the US is a very conservative country by most standards.
Socially conservative, definitely; more than half of all Americans regularly attend religious services, for instance (compare that figure with the percentage in the UK where it's less than 6%), most US states have capital punishment and most Americans don't see a problem with it, and and on and on on a host of other cultural/social issues. To say that America is NOT a conservative country in quite a lot of ways is to deny reality.
