Best is subjective but most productive or largest are objective.

Which are you trying to define?

I have to admit you pegged me. But I think it’s not a question of alienating, rather it is a question of welcoming moderate Republicans.

I don't think America has a good economic system. There's very few economic opportunities now in America unless you know the right people. So few in fact that I am considering emigrating. You can start a business anywhere. Why do you need to start one in a country where the cost of living is so high? I know of people in suppposed third world countries and they have more economic opportunities than us Americans. They're not starving, they're living comfortably while we're suffering.

What is your source for this, something anecdotal or an actual study about opportunities now in America?

How are you suffering compared to people "living comfortably" in third world countries? I'm betting you can flush toilet paper, drink the tap water, have central air, a garbage disposal, a dishwasher, and a car or two in the driveway, etc. I'm genuinely curious how your suffering compares to all these folks living it up in third world countries.

Do you think totalitarian systems or "supposed third world countries" are better in terms of it mattering who, rather than what, you know?

What a load of nonsense. You do not know a soul in any third world country with more economic opportunity than you. In the context you mean it - if you are suffering it's almost certainly your fault.
