5) We don't have a national church (though we're dangerously close to having a national religion).

6) We can buy a .44 magnum if we want.

7) We have the world's largest economy.

8) Our movies gross more worldwide than anyone else's (even though most of them suck).

Not quite right on some of these.

7) We do not have the worlds largest economy. China does.

9) Yes, we have been invaded. War of 1812. The British took Washington and burned down the White House. I call that invaded. Maybe you mean never been defeated. Ahhh, but then there's Vietnam.

Oh well.
