Collectively, We Are The Best and I'm Proud of That

Our Grandfathers and Great Grandfathers made America back to back World War Champs. We invented the train, airplane, car, electricity, TV, computer, and almost everything else important. America produces over 1/5 of the world's GDP. We've won more gold medals than most other countries combined and we frigging played golf on the moon. Nothing beats golf on the moon....

As far as history goes, the dinosaurs, Romans, Greeks, Vikings, Ancient Chinese, and many others might have richer and greater histories than America. However out of all the present day countries that exist I lucked out getting America. This was more of a "best in the league" question than a "best of all time" question.

While not all Americans are superior to the rest of the world. Most Americans have had far superior opportunities to make themselves better. America is a lang full of exceptional people, a rich history, and a flag that stands for freedom in a Constitutional Republic. Despite all that's wrong with America, I'm still damn proud to be an American and fly old glory.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
