My Motto, Right or Wrong

Freakonomics just had a contest to come up with the best six-word motto for the United States.

There was a clear winner:

Our Worst Critics Prefer to Stay (194 votes)

Here are the runners-up:

Caution! Experiment in Progress Since 1776 (134)

The Most Gentle Empire So Far (64) votes

You Should See the Other Guy (38)

Just Like Canada, With Better Bacon (18)

I still think P.J. O’Rourke’s suggestion: “America … It Doesn’t Suck!” is better.
