    The United States is the greatest Country in the World with out question. With that being said, the failure to hold our elected officials to task, we can all share collectively as a failure.
    The biggest failure is the continual turning of a blind eye to the Zionists that have hijacked our Republic.

    It is the greatest nation, because bullshit ideologically and political driven propaganda like Jeff Daniels spews in this segment is allowed without question.

    The reason it is the greatest that some Americans can miss, the reason why this is the most desired country to get to in the world, is because you could think, believe, chose how you wanted to live to improve your life without the threat of violence. The ideologues who wrote this script and who are rioting for change, false narratives of racism, and who profit from the very system they abhor, are shutting down those values.

    They want to burn the system down, like some of you. Some would remake in in a false Utopia, a la Orwell’s 1984, some to make it more free – the greatest thing about this country is it can change, and can keep these values, if we fight to keep them. Those that want it to self destruct have obviously never been in a place where that happens – I have, and those that have know what hell that becomes.

        Jerry, agree – talking about the Constitution is the right path. The system is rigged, the parties do control the power, the media, the money. How does one fight it from the outside? It’s hard, even with power, money and media – Ross Perot is a great example – tried but failed to wake people up. I am taking taking the inside path, try to change back to the basic ideals of individual responsibility and freedom.

        I believe the rise of Trump is reshaping the Republican party, and provides an opportunity. But there is a lot of corruption and a deep state tricks to deal with, from both sides. This is a process, it takes a long time, and deep commitment to fight our way back to God and Country, and the Constitution. I can’t give up on the US, I won’t. I don’t want the US to fail, I want the US to prosper – and return to being a light on the hill.

    Big Al, I understand where Will is coming from and he cites some of the very items that demonstrated greatness about America. The constitution, the Declaration of Independence are two amazing documents that defined what we would and should aspire to be, but like most civilizations, over several generations, we slowly at first then more quickly depart from the very principles in those documents, and thus become some of the negative things he quotes.

    He is correct on some of the reasons for this, a departure from decisions based on sound moral principles, and a severe devolution of truly well informed citizens. Ignorance of the principles we were founded on and the way the country was designed to operate is partially responsible for our degradation. Apathy towards those principles or even a desire to understand and to live by them is another contributor. Sheer greed, avarice, and only thinking of one’s individual desires without regard for the effects on society and the collateral damages is another.

    The founders knew it would be difficult to keep the republic they gave us and warned us about the dangers, but like many people, many of us have disregarded their counsel. It is a rather sad and oft repeated scenario that when people neglect to learn from history, their inclinations always have them repeating the same mistakes of the past.

    Of greatest importance are morality, personal accountability & responsibility, being informed of correct principles and then having the courage and effort to live by them. I seem to recall that George Washington as a teenager began early on to formulate a list of virtues he wanted to be exemplified in his life and carried that list with him at all times, referring to it regularly to get his bearings as to how he was doing. Many of the other founders and citizens alike, made similar efforts to be what they ought to be. Much of that same understanding and effort is missing with too many today.

    I believe that this nation and the founding documents and those great men who created them were inspired by God to that very purpose. As Franklin recognized “God governs in the affairs of men and if a sparrow cannot fall without His notice, is it probable that a great nation can rise without His aid?” Yet, too many of our citizens and the government itself have turned their backs on God, the very being who has many times come to our aid in time of need.

    As some of the prophets of old have told us that God has stated “If ye keep my commandments, ye shall prosper in the land”. That is a promise. We are not prospering as we should because we are neglecting the greater counsel of God and God will be slow to answer us in time of need because too many are slow to heed Him. So, it is not surprising to me why we are in the fix we are in at this time and the best way out of it is “self evident” as the founders noted.

    I still am optimistic that there are enough good people in the land and that they and us will someday begin to turn things around, just like Abraham “per adventure there be 10 righteous in the city, wilt thou spare the city?” And God said yes. I believe in this heavenly math that per adventure there are enough righteous in the land, God will spare the land, whatever that number is. May we all be part of that number and have the land spared, that is the best patriotism we can exercise.

As he clearly points out that Oprah found her talent and with no help from others became the most successful black woman in the world. In America anyone who follows that pathway can be successful. the link is; https://youtu.be/bTK-Ab3WLwM

    I may no longer think the US is the best country in the world….

    And I know the UK sure as h*ll isn’t:

    In a stunning power grab by the British government, local councils are set to be empowered with the authority to demolish buildings that are deemed to be epicentres of Chinese coronavirus outbreaks throughout the country.

    Published last month — with little fanfare — the Department of Health and Social Care’s “COVID-19 Contain Framework” laid out a series of laws, including the Coronavirus Act 2020, that local governments will be able to utilise in order to contain flare-ups of the Wuhan virus.

    Don’t these idiots know SARS CoV-II dies in presence of UV light?
