America is the best, but being the best country is not synonymous with having the best government, nor does it shield its people from scrutiny. But with all its faults, the US is still exceptional.
America is 238 years young, and embodies Western European culture fused with a rugged sense of individualism. This cultural combination fostered a country with the highest standard of living in the world.
It is important to recognize what made America great. America is not founded in collectivism, but rather individualism, sovereignty, and self-reliance. We don’t need to be more like any other country. Not Norway, not Canada, not Israel, not Turkey. We need to be more American.
