Hmmm. If we are better than everyone else, than what follows is that our citizens are better than everyone else's. And if they are better, then we can do anything we want in the world, because being better gives us the moral authority to bring the rest of the world up to our level.

What a bunch of horse manure.

Get over yourselves.

You think you are better? That is just the biggest laugh possible. The reality is that you are massively foolish, falling for the same self-ingratiating garbage that every major civilization in history fell for just before they fell.

Better? No wonder you can't be reasoned with. You believe you are 'the superior race'.

Exactly.  Thinking you are better just because of where you were born.
Can you imagine this.....

Think it is better than this


They are not better.  Just lucky

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

That is some really great word salad peppered with the Obama era "This is not who we are".

We are lucky and we can thank our founding fathers. We have a great system that people in shithole countries should adopt.

Well we should have told these people that before they left their "shithole" countries.

What if facts show that America is indeed better than everyone else?

You mean like it takes China, Germany and Great Britain COMBINED  to equal our GDP?

Is it possible to have Patriotism and nationalism at the same time?

I think so

Not really a counter-argument. I have a feeling I accidentally hit too close to home on this one.

If you Trump supporters and conservatives really feel this way, then 1) your standards are WAY too low, and 2) I am not sure there can be a compromise for us. The fundamental liberal view is that equality does not just apply to Americans, but to all humans. The fact that your side believes some humans are better than others is disturbing to me.

Absolutely.  The right claims to be a supporter of "natural rights", but I guess they are only referring to the natural rights of citizens of this country.  Screw the rest

This just exposes your stupidity. Believing that America is the greatest country in the world doesn't equate to believing that Americans are superior to all other people. That's just dumb.
