I didn't want to leave people outside the US out of this discussion, thus the title. I'm American. Hi. Some people think the US is great based on history or compared to other countries. Others, myself included, think a great country should always be striving to be better for the majority of their citizens and the process of getting there shouldn't be a long drawn out idealogical street brawl. So by that standard the US really isn't great. At all.
