    If geography rather than culture gave the US power, why didn't the same geography give it to the natives that lived there for tens of thousands of years first?

    How romanticized, conquering is never pretty.
    The real reason the country exists is because the right people did the right heinous things, at the right time, to the right people.
    It's the fools that live under it's protection that take war and violence for granted. But war is an ancient thing that has always been the reason any country exists.
    But other than that nice explanation on the geographical effect on the economy.

    Mexico's indigenous population was far larger than the area comprising the modern day United States before Columbus and for some time after, and was the center of economic activity and power of the pre-Columbian world. It was also blessed with significant mineral resources. It's problems have much more to do with the legacy of Spanish colonialism and unstable governance.

    Sorry but the part about Mexico have many wrong information. I am mexican I need to state that Mexico have a geographical problem but it is not the one you point out. Our problem is the mountainous systems and geographic features in the territory that divide the country into three main zones. The basin of the center, the Pacific coast and the Atlantic coast. We almost do not have cultivable plains and the little flat terrain is found in the northern desert. The desert is individually the most common climate in the country with 20% of the total area. But 80% of the territory goes from forest to the tropical jungle. Again the problem is that the plains are desert and the mountains are forest. The mountainous system prevents easily communicating the country by roads and are generally dangerous and undulating with very long routes.
    On the social side, the problem is religion, which prevented the cultural and academic development of the country until the beginning of the 20th century. To date Mexico has more churches than libraries. While in the USA they always had more libraries per person and less censorship than in our country. Sorry for my broken English, greetings from Mexico.

    Geography is great, but North america isn't the only location that a continental power of this magnitude could have come about. The United States did a phenomenal job in addition to it's nice location in order to get to where it is today, from the founding fathers to today. I don't know if the US is an exceptional nation, but this certainly has been an exceptionally successful period of time for the USA these last couple hundred years, time and time again.
    Compare that to the South American states, which are weak in comparison (despite south america being another solid region for a continental powerhouse), and it's clear that it wasn't just geography.

I'm sorry, because I lived in her country for a year, I worked as a Portuguese teacher for Americans who wanted to visit Brazil ... I met many educated Americans, with a vision of world wide ... today I understand that in the cartoon of the Simpsons, what is criticized are the American stereotypes, and by the way ... you can also be ridiculous, even if they are set in dollars

      Elias da Silva Benedito 2 months ago

      for example ... In the Amazon, the so-called "NGO" (Non-governmental organization) play the role of meddlers in the same proportion of Latinos, since the illegal ones in their country are the majority of Mexicans who clean the dirt that the Americans have a blasé disgust to clean ... the difference is that the Saxon method of illegally entering another's land is more polished due to the good education that his people have in schools, confusing Bolivia with Panama, Brazil with Argentina and Australia with Texas .. .being a poor latino knows the difference from a canadian to an american, even though you speak the same language and in spite of the accents ... but I doubt most of your FRIENDS are able to enumerate the cultural differences around the world, this' 'world' 'that lies beyond the Mexican, Canadian, Atlantic and Pacific borders ... this world there, which Hollywood invents and you believe others believe;)

And you must be retarded if you believe Americans don't cut there own grass. That stereotype is for rich people on Beverley hills. The average suburban middle class do it themselves. Then again a middle class American is a rich Latin American

    As an agronomist (unemployed), I am reminded that in relation to the United States:
    1- Brazil has no part of its territory in temperate climate. The overwhelming majority of the American territory is temperate. It is the zonality. Except when there is a volcano, tropical lands tend to be poor. And poor lands give poor people; even more before they had fertilizers, which was the case of Brazil, for some centuries. No part of Brazil has highly fertile soils. Even in Brazil's area of ​​reasonable soil fertility, this part of Brazil fits in the territory of neighboring Uruguay. While the United States has the largest area of ​​high natural fertility soils in the world, partly because of the temperate climate and partly because of the super volcano, which is in the present Yellowstone Park and has released fertilizers throughout the American and Canadian territory there hundreds of thousands of years ago.
    2- In a key natural resources, coal, the United States not only has coal in huge quantities, thing of hundreds of billions of tons, but also this coal is high quality and highly cheap and easy to exploit. Brazil has few mineral coal, which is poor in quality and difficult to exploit.
    3 - In a third key natural resource, oil, Brazil only began to exploit oil 80 years after the United States and today, Brazil's land oil is lower than the oil produced in the United States of 1890.
    That is, nature gave Americans and Brazilians:
    1- Nature has given Americans the largest area of ​​highly fertile soils in the world. For Brazilians, nature gave no area of ​​highly fertile soils, and very few percent of regular fertility soils.
    2-Nature has given Americans the largest and easiest and cheapest to exploit coal reserves in the world. To Brazilians, nature gave a low quality mineral coal, only in small reserves and over expensive and difficult extraction. Today, Brazil produces less coal annually than the United States produced in 1878.
    3. Nature has given Americans vast oil reserves, which have been exploited since 1859. To Brazilians, land reserves of oil are only 2% of the original land-based oil reserves in the United States. And Brazil only found oil in 1939, 80 years after the Americans.
    In short: God is not Brazilian. God is American.
