If we start chit with Syria, no joke I am LEAVING this country. It's already pretty obvious, but if Syria blows up than I am absolutely convinced that the US is going to continue waging war at an ever increasing scale across the globe, and likely will end with a draft sooner or later. As if the loss of our freedoms isn't already a big enough reason to leave.
People may call this giving up, running way. So be it. I would love to stay, and "fix" my country, but it's becoming pretty obvious that in addition to a horrible government, we have a horrible population here in the US.
The saying goes a country gets the government they deserve, and looking at our government, that should really tell you something about the people of the US. I have always defended the people of the US against the "American haters" but at some point you have to realize, the VAST majority of people here are DUMB. As another saying goes, you can't fix stupid. People would rather watch football, american idol, play around on facebook, and talk about actors and idiots like the jersey shore crew than do anything of real substance, and this country is ROTTING because of it.
Sorry for my rant, particularly bad day for me....
