Just because I'm born in a certain area doesn't mean I'm going to like the customs and history of that area. All I know, is that I'm human being, and if I see another human being suffering I'm going to try to help them. I don't give a damn about where they are from, people aren't inherently evil or worth less because they're of a certain race or nation, no one has a choice where they come into existence.
So you're American? Good for you. Now shut the hell up you insolent fool!
I always wanted to use insolent fool in a sentence, and I couldn't have hoped for a better circumstance.

America isn't getting fatter because we are a good society, it's because of all the chemicals and crap that we are putting into our food.

First of...I am not an american. It is not only the americans who see the downward spiral taking place in the USA. It is easy to say that if you do not like it, leave......I think most people in the USA do not have the money to just leave if they wanted to. Just as easy it is to say to join politics or what ever part you do not like.....that is not how the world works.....only for fanatics does it work that way. No, it is the people in the government who are responsible for the wellbeing of its citizens.
The US government prefers start wars and to buy and develop better machines to kill someone than to educate the youth for a better life and future. A lot of the stuff that is important for a country to flourish is neglected.
The strange thing is that president candidates promise to do things better but they all fail or never even tried to keep their promise. If you'd ask me the whole two party system is designed for easier control over the outcome when decisions are being made and that the ones in power do not care about the common people. They only care about their own personal interest or the interest of their elite friends.edit on 24-2-2011 by zatara because: I thinkedit on 24-2-2011 by zatara because: (no reason given)

For all those ashamed of being American: please leave. The people that are ashamed of "being American" are the dumbest, fattest, most ignorant and purely materialistic people out there. The people ashamed of "being American" are why we have the most anti-patriotic administration in American history ramming this country into the ground as we speak. Do you REALLY want to FIX AMERICA? Kick out all the people ashamed of "being American". This country would be a better place if the OP and their followers would just simply leave. THAT'S how you fix America - get rid of those that don't like it. Maybe we'll get our freedoms back once these failures are gone. After all, all these government safety nets like welfare exist only to carry the lowest common denominator at the expense of good, honest, hardworking people.edit on 24-2-2011 by ChocoTaco369 because: (no reason given)
