The United States is the Greatest Nation in the World Today

Donald Trump, What are you talking about?

The United States is the Greatest Nation in the World Today.

U.S. Flag

The proof is everywhere. People from every country are trying to find a way to migrate to the United States. They know that this is the land of opportunity. Immigrants in the United States and their U.S.-born children now number approximately 81 million people, or 26 percent of the overall U.S. population according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey (ACS).

The United States is the greatest innovator of any nation in history. Bloomberg.com recently examined more than 200 countries and sovereign regions to determine their innovation quotient. The final universe was narrowed down to 96. Innovation was measured by seven factors, including R&D intensity, productivity, high-tech density, researcher concentration, manufacturing capability, education levels and patent activity. The United States is Number 1.

2.South Korea

3.Germany

4.Finland

5.Sweden

6.Japan

10.France

14.Russia

17.Canada

18.United Kingdom

29.China

32.Israel

The names Amazon, General Electric, UPS, Fed Ex, Microsoft, IBM, Apple, Walmart and Google stand out as just a few of the American successes. What other country has so many world famous companies?

Students from around the world come to American universities. One of the most common items in the news is criticism that our universities are favoring foreign student admissions over admission of American students.

So I am not buying the “Make America Great Again” theme.

America is great today!

  1. Of course it all depends on how one defines greatness. We are innovative, but other countries have populations that are happier and physically safer, with better protection of personal freedoms, and longer life expectancy. But there’s no doubt America is a great country, all things considered as a whole.
