The Best Country in the World

A right-wing cousin who thinks Gee Dubya Bush is wonderful, likes to say we live in the best country in the world. This seems to be a popular slogan among the GOP and the CTC (critically-thinking challenged).

The Economist chose Ireland as the best country in the year 2005. Norway and Canada have been named.

Would the best country in the world allow the death of 6-year-old boy because his family couldn't afford to provide him with life-saving health care?

Next time one of those wing-nuts parrots that phrase to me about how the United States is the best country in the world, I'll require proof.
