>All this "AMERICA IS WORST COUNTRY, NO GOOD THINGS COME WITH IT" mentality   
Good thing I can't hear anyone's whines over the sound of the US Constitution.    
   
1. No free healthcare   
With a capitalist economic system and population of 300+ million, this is understandable. Plus the whole "We're in a ******* recession" thing kind of affects this.    
2. So much ******* debt   
Ever seen the movie "Too Big to Fail"? Yeah, watch that to see why the American government actually did **** to slow down the recession. By the end of it you should be thinking to yourself "******* international corporations, yo", not "******* American government, yo."   
3. Bad education system   
Yeah, our education system sucks... if you don't do your work or apply for AP classes. ****, there's a reason colleges like Cal Tech, Harvard, and Harvey Mudd are so hard to get into, yet are known as some of the best of the best.    
4. Vietnam War   
The US didn't even officially declare war on Northern Vietnam, it just kind of 'went there' to help out the south, and then withdrew. Something I find weird though is that we're not really taught about the Vietnam War in any history class I've taken so far, we kind of just jumped from WWII to the Cold War to the Gulf War.   
   
All of you sound like me in 9th grade when I thought "Hur durr government sucks hurr greedy politicians" until I finally noticed "Oh ****, the founding fathers were geniuses and our country is still pretty awesome at what it does, even though it's not the best".

of course the founding fathers has done the best to create the best country. but it was the past. Today is the reality. And now, the reality is ****** up. Even if our founding fathers is still alive, they must be upset by what happened here. The economy system, bankers, corporations, greedy people, blind politicians and many others. This is what they were fighting for. But what happened now? Their fought for nothing, it just like they were failed in this battle, literally. The government should be the powerful entity to protect the people, to control the resources and laws for the good of the people, but not to protect the interest of richest people and corporations.
And now when you understand the course of the history, you will understand why America should be a great country, but it wasn't, and it never be.

After watching the "American Dream" on Youtube (30min vid on how America became what they are now) I understand your points.

Just wanted you to know that there are many people who shares your thoughts, even if not all of your thoughts.
Either that, or I misunderstood everything.

American has more military strength than the rest of the world combined.
China wouldnt be nearly as big as that.

the amount that China spends is understandable because they are 1.4 ************* billion people while 'Murcia is 300 or so million and spending almost 6 times more than China it is ridiculus and they should spend more on their actual citizens

lol...how shameful america putting himself the same standard as with china. America has the worst Economy on record, and cant even sustain its own national debt to itself, let alone the 7 trillion dollars owed to china. It should be china who is bigger than america. americans are really lame.They claim they are the best in the world yet they owe china a lot of money.
1. No free healthcare. if you have one of the common everyday ailments that forbids you from being able to get private healthcover, or you can't afford it. your government leaves you to die!!!
2. The worst education system in the western world which leaves more school leavers innumerate and/or illiterate than any other developed western country.
3. Higher crime rates and murder rates per percentage of population than any other developed country in the world.
4. Even in the current climate, it has the worst Economy on record, and cant even sustain its own national debt to itself, let alone the 7 trillion dollars owed to china.
5. It calls itself a superpower, and claims to have the best armed forces in the world (but hasn't won a single war since the civil war over 200 years ago). how was vietnam? you called yourself superpower?
6. Has the highest percentage per population in the developed world of people living below the poverty line You may look big america but everybody in the world know you are just as weak as the third world countries.
7. check out your iphone, it was made in china. you are not only borrow money, you are importing stuff from china, you can't even develop your own economy, resources.

By that logic, every major country in Europe sucks because you know why? Germany, England, France, etc... all these countries owed us HUGE amounts of debt from WWII. In fact, Germany just finished paying its debt to the U.S a little over decade ago.

If you noticed, WWII was the official time that America claimed its place as the strongest country in the world.

What China's doing to the U.S today shows resemblance to what the U.S was doing to the other countries decades ago. It's a cycle, and it's bound to happen to every superpower, eventually. Those who do not know history are bound to repeat it.

2. The worst education system? That's why we have the best universities on the planet. I'll agree with you, our educational system SUCKS up until we get college. Elementary, Middle, and High school sucks. But that's why you have to get AP classes in each of them. That's kind of the point. Trust me, school is easy when you're young, but in college, it is ******* torture.

3. Since that's a fact, I'll just throw in an excuse. The U.S still has millions of people struggling. And yes, people are willing to kill others over their financial problems. But other than that, I have no argument to provide.

4. Our debt is bad, but the deficit has been lowered, which is good. Every country owes SOME kind of debt, but because we have the largest economy in the world, we have to deal with having the largest debts in the world.

5. Because we are a ******* superpower? We have the largest army in the world. I'm not saying this is a good thing, but we spend 714 BILLION dollars annually on our military. Even China knows they don't have that good of a chance.

6. I don't even know if that's a fact, so I'll leave it as it is.

7. So you're going to blame the entire U.S because some ****** company doesn't want to waste money constructing phones here? It proves the opposite, because China is a ******* communist country with low standards of living. People are willing to get paid $1 p/h

Tis not the size, but rather the quality and the design.

Though you're my former brethren, you have obviously forgotten about the Ulfberht long sword, and the Dane axe. Both superior technology to anything they had in that time.
