    As you want to see it. It is a very young nation compared to South America, The Asian Countries, Europe and Africa.

    Is the United States the youngest country in the world like you claimed in Post #139?

    No matter how you slice it, independent nation, colonization, or first indigenous people’s the answer is always “no.”

    "nation" is a synonym of "country". South America is a continent, as is Africa. Europe and Asia are parts if a continent.

    There are LOTS of nations (countries) in each of those continents that are younger than the United States (which is a nation or country).

    Back to the topic....America is young compared to other world countries and has learned from her mistakes and continues to ensure the rights of all people within the boundaries of the laws and constitution.

    I think the topic was America is still young and has made great strides towards the rights of everyone in comparison to some countries who still oppress their own people and limit their freedoms.
    But somehow it got turned into a totally different topic.

    We do all right--the Cato Institute (a right-wing think tank) ranks us at 15th.

    "Make America Great Again" is a racial slur.

    "Make America Great Again.". Go back to the days of segregation. Slavery. Jim Crow Laws. Lynchings. Native American genocide.

    By that metric, you're a slave to corporations, because the vast majority of your productivity is kept by your employee instead of being remunerated.

    The USA is not the youngest country in the world. Australia, for example, was first colonised 12 years after the declaration of independence.

    If you go by first colony, then the USA is over 400 years old.

    I've found that for many people, "skepticism" means to be completely unwilling to even consider something to be true unless it supports their bias.

    There's never enough of facts for the skeptic when it comes to stuff he opposes, but every little bit of information that supports his world view becomes PROOF and TRUTH.

    When people do, we get threads here complaining that liberals are indoctrinating them.

    And apparently before women could vote. I'd like to think this is just unintentional based on an ignorance of history, but these days who knows?

    That’s not skepticism.

    Of course it isn't. It's alternative skepticism, and there's loads of it around, even on this forum.

    Just look at almost any news thread. You get one side of people demanding more facts because it conflicts with their bias (there are never enough facts) and the other one seeing it as proof for their bias.
