    Default What Makes America Great?

    With Roseberry posting the list of incentives it got me thinking, What makes this country so great.

    Reading down the list of incentives many could be mentioned as an answer to the question here. Does anyone have other suggestions that make America great?

    Justice system? Healthcare? Jobs? Land?

    Our Bill Of Rights.
    Corrupt regimes like Trump's don’t fight crime, they legalize it. They don’t chase the crooks, they hire them. They don’t stop lying, they tell you the truth is whatever they say it is. Honor used to mean something, as did truth and integrity. In the Trump culture, those character traits mean nothing. It is sad to see what is becoming of our country.

    I do as well, at least on the surface. It is the interpretation that separates people.

    more resources per capital, innovation. I read somewhere that failed entrepreneurs make goods cheaper. In that vein: Econonic Saftey Net for Failure, wannabe 2%ers, bankruptcy laws that let people start over

    Yeah, but what makes America great? That's the easy answer.

    Is it our Justice system? Healthcare? Jobs? Land? Education? Our generosity? The city that you live in?

    God, Guts & Guns is the short answer.

    The ability to speak freely & criticize the system if one is willing to pay the price.
    The ability to choose your path in life if blessed with the tools.
