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.


I can tell you've never had to pay for medical costs or been out of country. Otherwise, you'd realize what was wrong with that statement.



Well You realize that universal health care has its costs. Higher taxes and what not. Another reason America may not ever adopt it is because technically it is a comunist idea.

this is a pretty dang interesting topic here.
hehe


It says they are unhappy with where they are headed. Not with the country. They maybe unhappy for a many number of reasons, the war, healthcare, education, and so on, and so on. But if your not happy with Bush why was he elected a second time? Also, he can only be in office for 2 more years as I understand it.

I just think that how did we as Americans somehow elect an ignorant dumb-ass as the current President. He does stupid things on camera and spouts these hilarious but completely and insane quotes which are referred to as bushisms.


people themselves are ignorant, the people who should be voting aren't and the people who shouldn't be voting are. its as simple as that, and as far as education, i think it is important, but we also shouldn't deprive the children in america of being children...Japan is one of the hardest countries to live in if you're going to high school there i heard. my friend used to live there, he said it was horrible, so much work for school so little down time...if i have to work that hard, i'll choose to stay upper-middle class and be smart as hell reading and learning outside of school. come on, America has about 70% of the world's resources, we have the best system of government around, we are a baby country, or a teenage country that is strong and thinks it canstand up to the world, while we definitely can, we still need to learn what lines NOT to cross. People are unhappy because they aren't content with their life, its plain and simple

Because almost all of the other choices sucked even worse then bush at the time. He's just gotten worse now.

After the first 100 days of the presidency is when things go downhill. Those first 100 days is what is termed the honeymoon period, and constituents are less demanding and more forgiving of their representative. Presidents may gain some momentum with spikes such as Bush and the 9/11 attacks. But going downhill is inevitable and the months being called a lame duck (towards the end of the president's term if he served 2) is the worst time.

In my country, some people here are never happy because 70% of our population falls under the line of poverty.
