You're getting some good feedback there, Daniel. Best education system, indeed! You've been brainwashed. As for military power, it's drained your country almost to bankruptsy. Likely the only thing that's kept the U.S. going for so long is that the profits from so many of America's international corporations have kept rolling home to top up the coffers. Bit like Great Britain when she 'ruled the waves ' before two world wars sent her broke.
China the big cheese today, Daniel. Most of the world is in hock to China, including the United States.
Frankly, I think the US has already passed her pinnacle of progress as a great nation and is on the slide. Not that you'll be right at the bottom. I doubt that will happen. But it is likely that China, and even India and Brazil, will surpass the USA within the next few decades.
