Frequently here and eleswhere, conservatives have made the remark that we have the best country in the world - usually meaning or implying that we have the best government in the world. Personally, I find this claim a bit ridiculous as I seriously doubt those who say it really know what all of the governments in the world are like/about and it strikes me as provincial. A bit like a seven year old who exclaims to his class that his dad is the best dad in the whole world. Well, his dad may be a nice dad, or a fairly crappy dad, but what the kid is really saying is he loves his dad. I would venture that most of us here - wherever we fall on the political spectrum, love our country, though many of us are not happy with our government and would like to see it do better. So, what does the "best government in the world" look like to you? If you were able to have your perfect country, what would that be, how would it operate? What's your vision? We can't create it if we can't envision it.... let your imagination fly!
