Well, other than the 'Living in Caves' part it just so happens that there are LOTS & LOTS of Americans who are all those things. I live in the U.S.
and have traveled all throughout this great land and regardelss of whether I'm Home or Abroad there never seems to be a shortage of "Rude S.O.B's"
no more than a stones throw away. While we aren't exaclty 3rd world poor and starving we do have a pretty bad homeless problem just about everywhere
ya go. Also, 'Healthcare' in this country does in fact SUCK for the lower class as well as most of the middle class too. Now I wouldn't go so far
as to say that those people you speak of are actually correct in their beliefs, but at the same time I'd be damn liar if I said they weren't mostly
On the other hand this country is absolutely gorgeous and impressive for what it has to offer. We've got everything from Rolling Hills to Sandy
Beaches to Rocky Mountains and Giant Forests. At the same time we've got some of the most modern cities and advanced facilities you're gonna find
anywhere. I personally don't care much for people in general, but I will admit there are some very cool, generous and hard working people here as
Although most people find my attitude as an American to be Disrespectful, IMO it is their attitude that is in fact the real problem here!! People who
go around with their nose stuck in the air, shooting their mouth off in arrogance & pride about this country need to shut their yappers for a while
and pay attention. America is being Ripped Apart and Stipped Away from the inside by it's very own People in the form of Corrupt Government, Selfish
Corporate Greed and Lazy, Ignorant, Brainwashed Populous.
Those who really do Love and Care for what this country should be realize it takes Work rather than Bull# to get it done. It is they who are the Real
Patriots of this country and they 'Know It' and 'Are It' without needing themselves or others to announce it. On the other hand it is the
'Traitor' who prances around like a damn fool while they blame their fellow countrymen for all the problems, labeling everyone a 'Liberal or
Conservative or whatever'. Stop blowing smoke up your own butt and pointing your finger and help out a little instead.
The battle for America has begun and 'The People' need to be United with each other if they plan on coming out on top. If you spend your time
fighting the left or the right you're gonna lose because the real enemy is right in front of you and they're just gonna remove you while you're
head is turned!!
The Left-wing is terrified that if the word got out on how well Capitalism and democracy works that their barbaric Socialistic ideas would
Our Capitalistic Society has reached a Very Dangerous and Destructive Stage. Like they say, 'The bigger they are, the Harder they Fall', and I
think it's very clear to everyone that if a Fall should happen, it's going to happen with a BANG!! It's core has been rotting from within while
everyone has been skipping around taking things for granted and now without some serious remodeling she's going to fall apart taking everyone with
(BTW, America is also NOT a Democracy just because it uses Democratic methods, but, that is a different topic all together. Plus I'm sure you're
already fully educated on all that since you know so much about this once great land.)
