58% of Americans think America is one of the greatest countries in the world

[quote]Across America the Independence Day holiday is a time for grilling, fireworks, and parades. But how much is that an excuse to party - and how much is it a genuine display of patriotism? It turns out most people in the US would say they are often proud of being Americans, according to data collected by the Pew Research Center. But this pride often falls along generational lines, and many Americans still wonder if the country's best years are in the past.[/quote]

        • Well, when you think about, things are pretty easy going by comparison to other spots in the world. Even if there are obvious flaws, which every country has, America is a good country. Just so long as you don't hurt yourself or apparently tread on the cursed ground of Florida.

              • but how many know that other countries exist? it's really their medias fault to begin with. This had come up the other day when i was talking to some politicians. I think this is one of the reason that they seem to have so many problems with things like global warming. Since they believe they are the best, they don't think that they need to fix anything or improve. So even things that should be simple like funding bridge repairs meet so much resistance from one group or another

                    I'm not entirely certain why this is surprising or even worth comment; especially considering [url=http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/12/03/248329823/u-s-high-school-students-slide-in-math-reading-science]the US ranks 29th in Math[/url] and we have [url=http://www.forbes.com/sites/danmunro/2014/06/16/u-s-healthcare-ranked-dead-last-compared-to-10-other-countries/]one of the worst ranked healthcare systems in the modern world[/url]. No matter your political affiliation or beliefs, I find it hard to believe that anyone finds this current status quo is acceptable. The more important discussion to have is what, exactly, should be done.
