    My Favorite Video Clip! It speaks TRUTH on our country!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...v=16K6m3Ua2nw#!

    This is pretty much all true of what he's saying in this video clip, no hard feeling but all true. I like to know others opinions here on what you all think of what he states.

    I don't know, a lot of the information is true. Don't get me wrong I love the United States and our freedoms, but seriously we don't have much to brag about anymore. The whole FREEDOM thing doesn't hold much weight, also considering our education system is down the crap shoot.

    We are not as great as we once were, but we are still the greatest nation on Earth. Why? Because we are the only remaining hope for Liberty--if we can get the Constitution functioning properly again.

    The world depends on us. If we go down, the whole world goes with us.

    The great men he talks about? The liberal news anchors from the Big Three that completely controlled the media message. Thank God for the media explosion that gave us a shot at getting the truth instead of the drivel fed us by a media oligarchy.

    This video is CRAP.

    This is an often cited and mentioned stat used in the effort to get government controlled health care.

    However, the numbers have been completly debunked and America is in the top 3 in the world for infant mortality.

    It depends on what you mean by "top." Does it mean "most" or "fewest" per capita?

    Either way, the USA won't make the Top 10 on the charts. We do well, but not nearly as well as some other nations.

    I am for one to agree our nation is nothing to brag about, even if we have a few extra items. This isn't even speaking of gun rights by any means.

    I like how the ridiculous amount spent on the military is ridiculed.

    People who claim to love small government who also advocate a needlessly large military that engages in non-defensive policing of the world, amuse me.

    He never defined "great" and he lives here, not in any other country so he must like something. My neighbor, from another country moved back to the country of origin, and then moved back ..

    Plus I live here .. one bonus that no other country can boast ...

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    One must distinguish between the USA as it was intended to be (which, arguably, reasonably approximates what it was for a while) and the USA as it is. The former can reasonably be called great. The latter? Hardly.
