Edit: Oh, and legos that cost 50% less than the rest of the world. Can't forget that.
Not necessarily true. I got a great deal off of a polish bricklink store for my crimson dawn guys, who were much cheaper there than they would have been at any US store. The torsos were $0.60 each, with 60 odd torsos, while most places had them at over $1.30 each and only had around 1-5 torsos. I ended up getting the torsos, heads, helmets and weapons for 20 guys for about $40, although I had to find legs somewhere else.
Also, despite our problems, the USA is still pretty awesome. Compared to many other countries, our problems are pretty small. A massive obesity epidemic for example is far easier to deal with than mass starvation. Our dysfunctional government still functions better than many others, such as Greece, Russia, China, Egypt, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, North Korea or Somalia, to name a few.
