In celebration of its 233rd birthday, here are a few fun facts about the United States:
Over 80 percent of the United States have laws prohibiting certain American citizens from marrying the spouse of their choice.
While 13.5 percent of Americans are African-American, 41 percent of those on death row are African American.
Women on average make 78 cents for every dollar a man makes.
The FISA Amendments Act still gives the government almost unlicensed ability to surveil the international communications of private American citizens.
Even with all that, I still believe this is the greatest country in the world. Happy Independence Day!
