Best For Whom?
Maybe not the best, but certainly amongst the top few, IF:|
1. You are white;
2. You are rich; and
3. You live inside the country.
America is certainly not "best" by any stretch of imagination if you go outside of those narrow qualifications. The hegemon is universally reviled around the world, according to Pew Research. That is not something that would happen with a country that is the best.
It is total B.S. to say that there is no discrimination in America. Just look at the jails, with its 2.1 million, which is just about the highest in the world, or more than 500% higher than that in China, per capita - and you can see how the colored are disproportionately represented. Americans talk a good game, but at the end of the day it is still the whites who are ahead. It is not as though they have higher IQ or anything like that (since it is scientifically proven that Asians with their 105 are the highest). At the other end, where the Asian students are doing well academically, they are blocked from the best colleges according to their academic performance, while whites of lower grades get in over them. When it comes to jobs and politics, it is even worse.
Some say America is ready for either a Hillary or an Obama. I'll bet you dollars to peanuts it is not, and won't be for another century or so. McCain is eminently more electable than either, just because he is white.
