I don't agree

No other country's philosphy holds within it that it's the people who have natural/God-given unalienable rights. There isn't any other central government on the planet who has a Bill of Rights based on that principle of natural rights meant to protect its citizens from the onslaught of a tyrannical government.
No other country on the planet has principles that even come close to the founding principles of the USofA.
Regardless of the fact that America has turned into a fascist, warmongering empire, we still have that wonderful Declaration of Independence, which is really a Claim of Right in old money, stating that the people of America have every right to abolish a government that turns tyrannical.
America's founding principles and documents are unmatched in the rest of the world and as long as those aren't forgotten by Amercans we will be a threat to despots everywhere.
Aren't you from New Zealand? Are you going to tell me that NZ has founding documents anywhere near as principled as the US? HA! It doesn't even have a written Constitution! And the queen is still the head of state in NZ. Go read your Bill of Rights and tell me that it means anything. It doesn't. It's what the government confers. NZers aren't born with natural rights, your 'rights' come from your government and they're what it decides they are.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
