To me, America is Camelot in the 20th-21st century. It's a great, astounding country that has followed the ways of Rome, Britain, and even Israel for many decades. I agree that America is not to be idolized, because anything in the place of God is evil, but I am telling you that America became so great because of God. If America was not great, then America would not have been so blessed.
Our God blessed America because we made a great Covenant with him. The old Constitution was that Covenant. We've been breaking it for decades and the consequences will be swift and severe, but I'm positive that America will live on like Camelot did. Even if, the Lord doesn't come for centuries from now (Just giving a hypothetical example) and archeologists find nothing but obscure stories and poems about America, it will always live on in my spirit as a gift from God.
To me America, as an ideology is so Judeo-Christian, that I will be saluting my flag in Heaven after I get done bowing to Jesus, just to remind me a second time of what Jesus gave to me. First, Jesus died for me so I could be saved, but he gave me the gift of being born in America with all of my meager wealth at the same time he died for me. So I could go to Church without persecution, so I could pray and have a Bible without persecution, and so I could speak my mind to the government instead of being it's slave. The fact of the matter is, Jesus'es 1st gift to me was Salvation, but his second gift to me was America, and that's good enough for me.
