I had been considering a thread of this nature. This bit from Sim indicates that the subject is viable discussion material. Based on the idea of leading by example, what country do you think deserves the title, "Leader of the Free World?" Everyone may select their top two countries, the United States is disqualified from this thread, to be "Leader of the Free World" by their example. If there is participation in the thread, then a poll may be added. Any country getting two nominations (from 2 different people) can be included up to the maximum poll options. You may also give your reasons why you think the countries you select deserve the title of "Leader of the Free World." Participants in the thread may also discuss the relative merits of different potential candidates.
