Did you know that the USA is the most technologically advanced country in the world? Many of the groundbreaking inventions that are used today were invented in the USA. The USA is a republic of science with astounding innovations but the USA is now being infested with leftists and may lose its position as the most innovative country in the world. Now corporations are harassed by the leftist police state, leftist human resources, and SJW’s. As leftism continues to be pushed and leftist agendas infect the workplace, the United States has started to fall behind while less leftist and diversity focused countries such as China, Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea are catching up. Let us not allow this trend to continue and make America great again! Here is a list of groundbreaking innovations produced by the USA:

Essentially I agree up to that point, but isn't it a stretch to call China less leftist? It seems your objective is to blame leftist policy for rightist failures. If there's anything notalbe that should be mentioned it's the US continuing to reject science in favour of creationist nonsense. Do you want to blame leftists for that too?

Why not? Put a label on US failures and hope others adopt the idea!

Truly a great accomplishment by a German ex-Nazi SS officer!

German hands were also on the Russian accomplishment of building the first space station.

It's interesting to ponder which of the two great accomplishments proved out to be the most useful to science, and the one that was more concentrated on proving that we could for some reason?

China may be leftist but they only promoted class and racial equality, not the other ideas of the left that emerged in the counterculture movement from the 1960's-present such as the Anti-War movement, the Feminist movement, the LGBT movement, the Political Correctness movement, the Social Justice movement, the Pro-Drug movement, and the Animal Equality movement. It is these other ideas that have hindered America's progress.

Rightists are also to blame for America's current problems. While the leftist propaganda of equality and postmodernism is being promoted by the media and schools, so is creationism and intelligent design by rightists. America even today is still leading science and technology, but who knows how much further things can go if the ideological fanaticism of rightists and leftists is eliminated and replaced by an efficient Libertarian government that only makes necessary regulations instead of making regulations that try to push a religion or ideology on people. Here is a list of 21st century American inventions:

21st Century American Inventions:

Jet Ship
Fully Reusable Space Plane
VTOL Rocket
Turbine Artificial Heart
Prosthetic Vision
Artificial Bacteria
Artificial Virus
Hypersonic Sound
Brain Fingerprinting
Tablet PC
Tablet/Laptop Hybrid PC
File Sharing
Peer-Peer File Sharing
Social Networking
File Streaming
Automatic Defrosting
Combo Washer/Dryer
Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Robotic Floor Scrubber
Robotic Floor Mop
Robotic Swimming-Pool Cleaning Robot
Spin Scrubber
X-Hose
Mop Wringer

Wernher von Braun may have been German, but the accomplishments of designing the Saturn V and Apollo rockets were done on American soil, making it an American accomplishment. And Wernher von Braun only joined the Nazi party to develop rockets. Furthermore, the basic technology that made space travel possible was invented by an American named Robert Goddard. He invented the nozzle which directed the flow of exhaust gas from the engine to stabilize the flight path of the rocket. He also invented the liquid fuel rocket engine which is better than the solid fuel rocket because the amount of fuel that goes into the engine is contolled by valves and pumps, making acceleration and decceleration easier. He also invented vectored thrust, which uses mechanisms to turn the nozzle and this made it possible to steer the rocket. Additionally, the hydraulic control systems for air and spacecraft were invented by an American named Howard Hughes and the transistor computer guidance system for rockets was also invented by him for use on the world's first air-air missile and this made maneuvering the rocket easier.

You lost your train of thought when you suggested that Von Braun only joined the Nazi party to further rocket science. I have better things to do than argue your nonsense you're inventing to make it look like the US wouldn't support SS officers.

Remember, the SS officers who were hanged in Nuremburg for being SS officers, regardless of their respective crimes?

Are all the inventions you didn't mention in your lists, inventions that America wasn't responsible for?
You know, there must be a few?  Embarrassed

What a childish thing to do to promote your country. The fact that you were right before you foolishly tried to embellish it with your lists, speaks a lot about you mr. 567.

The basic technologies that made spaceflight possible were developed by Robert Goddard and Howard Hughes not Wernher von Braun. The only SS officers that were supported by the USA were the scientists, engineers, and inventors because they could contribute greatly to America's technological advancement so why waste them? The fact is that even my list is right. If you search Google Patents and check the list of Nobel prize winners in science and technology on Wikipedia, America has the largest number. Besides, America is the closest to being Libertarian and Libertarianism originated in America, so what is wrong with promoting the USA? But of course, I am also planning to do threads on inventions made by the other countries that have also produced many inventions such as the British, French, and Germans who, along with the Americans, have the largest number of innovations in the world. There was also a documentary in the Discovery Channel talking about Australian inventions, so I plan on compiling a list by visiting their website, and then posting it here.

This graph illustrates these facts:



Source: http://people.idsia.ch/~juergen/sci.html

As you can observe in the above graph, the USA, UK, France, and Germany have the widest lines, making them the most innovative. The problem limiting the scientific and technological advancement of countries in South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, and most of Asia with the exception of the Far East, is that they are not Libertarian enough. Their societies are too authoritarian and socially conformist.

There is one "class" in modern Communist China that has all of those freedoms, the Chinese Communist Party ruling "class".

because they are rulers, they can do as they want.

True, and this certainly is not better than the leftism in America and with the Political Correctness movement, freedom of speech is also being suppressed in the USA. China is Communist while America is Liberalist, both are wrong and Libertarianism is right.

"Liberalist"?

That's another new system of political economy?

No, of course it is not new. Liberalism is the opposite of Conservatism, the Republicans are Conservative and the Democrats are Liberal.
