    please fill me in on "fact"
    By far the dominant world power over the last 400 years has been the Brits. the british empire covered 1/4 of the worlds population for over 200 years. i was the Brits who abolished the slave trade in the 1820's 40 years before the civil war
    i would be interested to see who tpaschal30 thinks the Americans have freed from tyranny.
    by the way I like your signature attributed to socrates wasnt it?

    Stoney,
    While your input is certainly welcome, my question was directed more toward U.S. citizens in an effort to see which of us believe that we live in the greatest country in the world and which of us do not. If possible, I would prefer that this not turn into a discussion of the attributes of the various countries of the world but simply address the question.
    Thanks,
    Matt

    This thread is a bit like asking Christians if Jesus is the greatest religious figure. The believers will say, " Of course!"
