The top 6 nations?
This is what working together gets them.
A little from the article.
A new ranking of the world's “best countries” is out — and the results don’t look good for America.
Switzerland takes top nation honors, according to the second annual “Best Countries” ranking from U.S. News & World Report, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and global brand consultants BAV Consulting. Just behind the Swiss are Canada and Britain, second and third, respectively.
The United States ends up in the seventh spot, just edging out Australia but also lagging Germany, Japan and Sweden.
Get that. Our neighbors to the North, the Canadians, are number two in the world. I expect most Americans would no way expect that.
Not only are we ranked in the 7th spot but we dropped 3 spots from the previous list. We are only seen as the “most powerful.” Given the absolutely foolish and fiscally irresponsible amount we spend on military and what we call defense, we ought to be most powerful.
Bet better, America. You're falling behind. And it's not because you're not spending boodles of money. It's just that you're foolishly spending far too much of it on what we consider "defense" and health care.
