Guess what, America is set up for you to be in debt for life and that makes it almost impossible to live.

Can you please clarify the last statement in your post?
"Nuclear obliteration couldn't really damage us any more, who knows, it might be just the thing we need to start over. I wouldn't be opposed to it."
Are you saying that if you knew of a plot that involved the nuclear destruction of the country that you live in you would say nothing and let it happen?
Or...are you saying you would welcome the nuclear destruction of America and would help out if you had the chance?

Get XM Radio or Sirius.
Debatable on several fronts.
Please tell us where these "truly free nations" are where the gov't won't penalize you for paying your property taxes. And please tell us how an advanced society is going to survive if paying your taxes is a penalty-free choice,
Lets be honest here, the US culture provides you with the opportunities and choices to live a happy, prosperous, and free life. If you choose not to take advantage of the opportunities, then that is your own fault.

it doesn't seem to me that he is complaining about anything, especially his lot in life; but rather that he is feeling anger and distress towards the focus of america in general, in all aspects. let me make this more subjective as i don't want to be wrong in speaking for him.
