The sad part is MOST Americans don't know why.
MOST Americans have never been to another country and have only internal patriotic indoctrination on which to base their conclusion.
Most Americans can't even name all the states and rarely see beyond their own little piece of their individual interpretation of the American Dream... the length and breath of their living space and day to day coping with existence.
Most eligible Americans don't vote. Most American are busy trying to figure out how to best their neighbors.
Can you imagine how great our country would be if Most Americans really cared?
