If there are so many conspiracy theories, why is life in the states so good?

There are too many conspiracy theories to list in one place but it makes me wonder if there is a global conspiracy going on why is life so good, with so many freedoms under a system that honors the same ideas this country was founded upon almost always. Flint is an exception, but things seem pretty good to me. Am I alone in thinking life is good? Am I crazy?


Life in US is so good because they unable to takeaway the guns from people.

"Those who think they are free are not free."

Its a waiting game. Why don't you look at the age rating of people getting decent pay jobs. That should be your first look. It is not anything like the past. The old are actually just freeloading for now and going to die soon. They will not see how the younger gen will have to suffer just like WW2.

The system is a mess. Only because the stock market hasn't crashed yet for the old who have decent jobs.

I should recall the old and say the rich and powerful old.

Your just sheltered and probably young or your successful.

Being successful isn't bad it's good.

But there's a majority in this country that aren't living that life. For many people it's rough. Try living in. Ghetto for six months as tell me what you think.

I see in front of us the proper legacy of the founding fathers. Yeah ish is effed up, but that's life. The world ain't never going to be perfect, but it's pretty damn good.

Because people who have truly hard lives do not have the time nor the energy to sit around on internet thinking up global conspiracies.

A quick question if I may...

How many of you decrying the average U.S. citizens quality of life have travelled abroad for any length of time?

I mean seriously, trade places with your social/economic equivalent in Mexico or India or South Africa for 6 months and then tell us how bad you have it.

The U.S. is far from perfect but quality of life in the States for the poor and downtrodden is much better than 90% of the world has it.

First define good.

Can you do that considering good is different for each person?

OP, I understand your consternation. Honestly, I feel my life just keeps getting better and better. Yeah, there's bills to be paid and sometimes, life throws curve balls and you are forced to seriously cut back to save up again. My husband has his job while others are losing theirs because he is damn good at what he does and is not seeking an outrageous salary. We learned to live comfortably and instead of money, he gained more freedom. It is a worthy benefit compared to his co-workers and bosses putting in more than 60 hour weeks. Though, most assume he is making 3x what he actually is. Gain perspective and don't play the victim card, I trulybelieve that card will only hold you back. Dont like the hand you were dealt? Toss it, and get a new hand dealt out. it is scary, change always is at first. But why hang on to a losing hand?

Naturally, I think my past hardships (homelessness) has strengthened and allowed me to appreciate the life I now have. Are their others struggling, certainly. Handouts without education/counseling will only create bigger victims. No matter where you happen to stand currently, homeless to being 1%, you will have some kind of struggle/challenge to overcome, that is what life is about. It is all perspectives and willing to make your own personal changes.

Try getting a child into school without it having vaccines pumped into it.
Try getting a drink of water that doesn't have Fluoride in it.

Do you work three jobs a day?
I'm not from the states and as I see it, America is a good place to live, if you are lucky. The rest is living a utter sh!tty life.

Correct me if I'm wrong.


My parents live well on retirement. I try to tell them how things have changed and what I am looking at as I grow old. Don't think mom and dad can or want to wrap their brain around it.

a reply to: CynConceptsI was homeless for two years but know I have a free life. Literally, I don't have to work, I have a good apartment, two health insurances for free everything is free! I love America. Even if it is a little screwy. As long as we celebrate the 4th of July every year, we're good.
