Do you consider your country good?
Posted 12/6/15 , edited 12/7/15
I think its going to hell tbh. Well , for the rich, its fabulous, etc. But I won't lie to myself and say its dope.

The economy is run on foreign interests, inflation is at an all time high.

Crime is running rampant, serious reforms in health care and provisions for the homeless need to be made.

Education costs are skyrocketing while in other places its free.

The government party system is not diverse enough, there aren't enough parties to represent the different subgroups.

Religious tensions foreign and domestic are high, minorities are widely openly discriminated . Some feel a gender war is imminent or occuring.

While I think it could be worse, it isn't paradise. What do you think about your country? Discuss.

I like this qoute from Chris Rock


“If you're black, you got to look at America a little bit different. You got to look at America like the uncle who paid for you to go to college, but who molested you.”


I think it applies to all minorities in America

The economy is in need of some love, and domestic goods should be balanced (̂we make the best backpack yoùll ever use. only for $350̂ Or this is made in the USA and is only $20 but it is shit....)

Crime is actually like half of what it was 20 years ago, but it should be even lower. (This is a problem with people)

Education is truly ridiculous and I had to leave college because of this and it eats my proverbial lunch.

The government and politics as a whole should be more human, faster, and be in places where it should be and not where it normally tends to be....

The larger religions need to calm the fuck down and keep to themselves. (Christianity and Islam Ìm looking at you. Why caǹt you be like your sibling Buddhism? yàll need to find your fucking zen.)

We are all people but if you act like an ass then you deserve to be treated like one, but doǹt cry when you end up all alone or with other asses.

Gender is there people need to get over it, I doǹt care if you are man, woman or sexual identify with a frying pan everyone is equal till they do things that make them unequal.

All in all it̀s not the worst, It̀s just really fucking stupid sometimes.

It's hard to say that any country is perfect and without flaws... but to say good, well, I am fortunate to not be living in a poor or war-torn country, so if my country is better than those places, I suppose it is pretty good (Although, Chi-Raq encompasses everything Spike Lee preaches in his movie, so I suppose it could be better...)

Its not perfect but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Hey can be worst. Can be like China. To the point almost no one gives a damn anymore. I like having to speak my mind and have my personal freedom and telling my government to go F itself.

No, not good. Not evil, either. A whopping mess, like any other country. I see it all as shades of grey.

Nope. I'm American and considering how this country was built and came to be, and all the crimes it has committed and continues to commit, I can't say I consider America to be a good country.

For those who live here and benefit from living here including me, I would say it's a good country to live in but not a good country overall, especially from the stand point of those who do not live here and has been a victim of America's crimes.
