Response to Mr.Turnip (Reply #51)

56. Of course, there are worse places to live.

There are always worse places, but that doesn't excuse America's faults. My comment about America not being the greatest place in the world was to point out that many Americans do seem to think that the U.S. is God's gift to the world, a shining city as Regan put it. As for better places, many countries in Europe provide a higher stander of living and more upward mobility than the U.S. I'm not saying they are better in every way, but I do think there is a lot America could learn from Europe, if Americans would let go of their pride.
