I suspect a poll entitled "Which country represents the most likely nation to save humanity" the USA would win that one, too.
I'd take that bet. Sorry Burd but it's not 1943 anymore. Your country has been overrun by corporations. The gov't doesn't really rule anymore. Hasn't in 50 years. THAT is why you get results like this. It's not the people. It's the system that you have that you can't escape.

That's why we have such a hard time finding immigrants to join us, I assume.

If the United States ever decides to cease giving all of the foreign aid our government gives to third world nations....now that would be a threat to all humanity. The world has learned to take the US for granted when it comes to money and all of the humanitarian programs taxpayers in the US fund. This taxpayer is starting to get weary of the criticism we get from nations who would fold without our annual contributions to their economy.

Tell your government to stop invading countries, that way you don't need to send "help" taxpayer, Afghanistan and Iraq are principal recipients of your aid, followed by Israel and Pakistan, so your aid is aimed to reconstruction of countries destroyed by you/military targets
Oh and such a giving nation you are, always #1...
