This, IMO, is the root cause of why this country sucks. Why women are loosing rights to control their own body, why everyone (except the very rich) is in danger of becoming homeless due to a major health problem. It is the root cause of the racism, bigotry, and just blind hatred that plagues this shithole of a country every fucking day.
No one's arguing that it's not a good place. My two points were that A) different people prioritise different things depending on where they were brought up, and B) that Americans have a weird obsession with being the greatest which other countries don't have to the same extent.
