stupid for involving troops in certain wars, stupid for GIVING tax pay money to other countries.  It's funny, the same people who say Americans are stupid would be quickly speaking a different language if it were not under the protection of the U.S.
watch the first season of "Man in the High Castle" it would be something like that.
it's time to let some of these countries sink or swim.

My uncle used to say European relatives had sour grapes. But when I visited them i felt in many ways they did live bette lives than we did, Americans put to much value on money and power and , not enough on beauty and civilization .

Personally I find it silly when Canadians and Europeans gloat over their supposedly superior societies. I frankly fail to see a significant gap between them. You look to government spending, but under this metric you'd have to say Russia is superior to Ireland. The United States is a wonderful developed nation to live in.

All other developed nations are smart enough to have universal health care.

I agree with you that America really ought to pursue privatized or universal healthcare.

And smart enough to have universal taxation to pay for that universal healthcare.

If you are gutless enough to have me blocked then fuck off responding to me.
Advanced countries are smart enough, America isn't.

How many technological advances have Americans behind them? Almost all.

Medical advances in the last 200 years? Ditto.

The most robust economy? The most diverse culture? The most free society?

America.

What's your definition of stupid?

It's only good under some situations.

But the loony left thinks it is intrinsically good.

Well, you mentioned that we had the most diverse culture as a good thing. 

If anything, it is causing disunity in America and Europe.

It can be a good thing if it is done correctly. But I knew liberals would not argue with that point.

It was good in America before 1952.

It's "stupid" to presume that this melting-pot experiment (globalist indoctrination) that the U.S. government has indulged over the last century informs a national and/or cultural homogeneity, where one can characterize it as a single demographic.

Yes because you can't eliminate the misplaced notion that white people are superior. This claim is most often made by the most inferior whites. Just look at these boards.

Shithole countries are shitholes because of socialism, not inferior DNA.

America is one of the few developed countries that discourages assimilation. Norway has a very robust assimilation policy. The people of Norway look down at Americans that migrate there without adopting the culture.

America is socialist? I'll be fucked. Never knew that.
But inferior DNA counts.
