As for Natural Resources, We import our primary resources such as OIL, much of our Wood, critical resources like battery materials and materials for clothings. As a IMPORTER with a $5Trillion Trade Deficit, it is obvious we bring in much more than we have available.

As the melting pot of the World, we do have diversity of backgrounds but most would say we have the most prejudice against minorities [Asians, Latinos, Arabs, Indians, etc] of any of the developed countries.

Freedom of choice? Depends on who you are and what you want. That element is too ambiguous to decide.

Corvettes? YES. Thanks to the totally fucked economy folks are selling their vettes at stupid low prices.
We win because we have all of these together. WE may not be the best at anything but being a 9 out of 10 at many things still makes us the winner in total points.
