Fucking president breaks the law, digs into our lives without a warrant, using a shitty war as a shitty excuses to do shitty things. In the end, it's just created more problems.

I hate how the coperation's fucking own the judges, passing stupid ass new laws and removing all the old good ones that protected us. I hate how no one listens to what the normal man already knows is right, I hate that, despite the fact that plenty of other developed nations have government sponsored healthcare and fed citizens, i've had to shit and scrimp around to pay off the massive bills every time I've needed medical care and wonder if I can still eat, while seeing others starving and going to food centers even if they have a *job*.

I hate the fact, that despite being a supposedly wealthy nation, we've got our nut-sacks stretched up and wrapped around our own throats from debt. I hate the fact that billions are dumped into our school system, and that they are still shit, when every year some supposedly goody-to-shoes politician says he's going to fix it, when I can't even get a dime in aid for my degree.

I hate that, when we have some of the largest companies in the world, the average man can't get a decent job. why? Because their being fucking exported out of country to save a few fucking dollars! And, as a part of that, this great 'open world market' everyone talks about is *fucking* us. We're so hooked on these cheap POS import chinese goods that aren't worth the cheap plastic their make of. that. and we're crushing out all of the little small business in America through huge taxes, those businesses that make up the middle class, so now that middle class is going to hell.

To to that beginning post..

about the medical... "Whether you are rich or poor they treat your wounds and even, if necessary, send a helicopter to take you to the hospital."
Sure, send a holicopter, show up on the scene, and FUCK you. Don't you dare make that out like a good Samaritan act. Have you ever had a chopter or aid car sent to you? that is NOT free. That is BIG BIG money. Let us not forget the tickets, the court fees, the medical bills. The state reems you for so much money that most people have to take out bankruptcy. Sounds nice, doesn't it?

"Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?"
Sure, the water system. Lets start with that shall we? Like most of the country using antique 1960s systems that push out crap because the states are too busy dumping money into other projects to fix them? Sure we have electricity using a lot of dirty coal and oil, but what about all the other networks? Ever seen Japan's network stats? Take your internet connection.. Average Japanese connection lies at around 90 Mb/s. America? ~1.80. The American companies are so fixated on gaining control of the internet access rights that they're letting the technology dump.

"Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job? Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?"
And... that many of those people have a job, but still have to go to a food bank to feed their families? Howabout the price jump in fruit and vegetables that makes eating right extremely expensive, aiding in poor health.

"I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough."
Howabout about 3/4th of those restaurants will ultimately go out of business? Restaurants fucking flop like fish because the stare imposes huge responsibilities, expensive permits, heavy taxes and anything else they can slap you for.

I'd like to point out, that everyone HATES OUR GUTS, we the people, because of politicians who think they're laws have sway in other countries and rule the world, when in reality, we hate them more then they could ever imagine.

This really pissed me off, and I'm sorry for disagreeing and being rude, but I am dissatisfied. VERY FUCKING DISSATISFIED. I could go on forever, but i've already been as rude as I want.

Where the HELL do you get all that optimism?

Americans are generally proud that they live in a democratic country. Democracy breeds capitalism, and capitalism generally fucks over the common man.

To Pockay, of course income distribution isn't even, you fucking Communist bastard. Australia actually has a better distribution of income than Japan, and quite a bit better than the States.

Wow there are americans who realize that their government doesn't work... I'm really suprised and happy now
Now I see that like 1% of the americans (who almost are here on cr^^) don't close their eyes to the reality...

nobody really know what they really want except most everyone desires a change soon after a new change. the government works its the people who constantly protest one thing after another. if people made up their minds about things, everyone would be happy. one concrete side versus the other. win or lose, no middle. and solid and concrete resolutions, not flimsy fickle beliefs.

I understand what neekolate was saying. I have been to an impovrished nation with an even more corrupt government than the US. I think it is because no one can be content with what they have. Everyone has a different view of what the government should do so not everyone can be happy. The US is not as screwed up as people want to say it is. Does the government directly affect you in a way other then taxes? That's really all they do to me and 99% of the people I know. I don't agree with some of the US government. But I am still thankfull to be here.

And don't forget that the American dollar is dropping. Aka being more and more worthless.

And THAT I do blame the goverment. When US to Canadian dollar is almost 1:1, when it was like 1:1.5 a few years ago, thats just sad.

Wow you guys really like to complain -_-. America is probably the best country because no other nation can even come close in the opportunities that are available here. You talk about corruption, but its exactly like orangemaen said, those people were democratically elected. Of course theres gonna be corruption, but you don't think theres corruption in other governments? And what do you expect about healthcare? OMG you have to pay money for it!? In my opinion it doesn't even make sense to have some kind of universal healthcare. Why should I pay for someone stupid enough to drive without a seatbelt or ride a motercycle without a helmet? It was his choice and now he pays the price.
