I miss the cold war. Back then we as American's loved the fact we had freedoms the USSR did not. That was our weapon, our freedom. It was the capitalist view that competition brings about a better product, and it did. But with terrorist attacks as an excuse, and no competition from around the world, the product called "freedom" is dwindling. The U.S. no longer needs a show case item to prove it's better. We need a Pepsi to our Coke.
