I just wanted to thank you all for responding to my question about what made America great. But I guess the answer I really wanted was to the question: How did America become the most powerful and influential country on the planet in a less than 250 years?

Location. It's called "natural advantage" (not being sarcastic: that's like a history-teacher term). Resources. An indigenous population that posed no threat due to large-scale decimation due to disease. Technology. Initiative. Willingness to exploit slave labor to make maximum profit out of trade in essential crops.

Stuff like that.
