"It’s not the greatest country in the world… the NEA is a loser, it only accounts for a penny out of your paycheck but he gets to hit you with it any time he wants. It doesn’t cost money, it costs votes, it costs our time and column inches. You know why people don’t like liberals? because they lose. If liberals were so fucking smart, how come they lose so goddamn always? And with a straight face

 you’re gonna tell students that America is so star-spangled awesome that we’re the only ones in the world who have freedom? Canada has freedom, Japan has freedom, the U.K., France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Belgium has freedom. 207 sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom. And yeah, you, sorority girl… Just in case you accidently wander into a voting booth one day, there’s some things you should know and one of them is there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that we’re the greatest country in the world. We’re 7th in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number four in labor force, and number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending.. where we spend more than the next 26 countries combined, 25 of whom are allies. Now none of this is the fault of a 20 year old college student, but you nonetheless are without a doubt a member of the worst generation ever, period. So when you ask yourself ‘what makes us the greatest country in the world?’ I don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about… but we sure as hell used to be. We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reasons, we passed laws, we struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged war on poverty not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors. We put our money where our mouths were and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and we cultivated the worlds greatest artists and the worlds greatest economy. We reached for the stars.. acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn’t belittle it. It didn’t make us feel inferior. We didn’t identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election and we didn’t scare easy. We were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed by great men, men who were revered. The first step to solving any problem is recognizing that there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world.. not anymore.”
