From what I have observed, it seams that Americans do not want to help themselves. Or maybe it's the opposite, and that is all that they want, is to help themselves. Obviously this country is not heading in the right direction. This is evidenced by the continuing downward spiral of the economy. But does that deter Americans? Hell no, they are going to keep on electing big Govt., corporate puppets, and religious zealots.

It is just mind bottling that they continue to vote for Romney, Gingrich or Santorum. What do they hope to accomplish?

Apparently they are not interested in seeing things get better.

"Hey, lets vote for the same scumbags that have been running stuff and hope for a different outcome."

From this point on, I am done with the US. It will get what it deserves.

The problem with America's the freedom of its people. Freedom isn't free and we've forgotten that.

With the dirty elections going on who knows who actually got elected. It's the puppet masters who set them up not the voters.

And therein lies the reason for the thread in the first place.

It's the baby boomer generation. It's like an entire species poured their worst qualities into a single set of offspring. That generation is so mind numbingly stupid it defies all logic. They believe the Earth has a creamy nugget center of oil and that economic growth will expand into infinity until the sun explodes a few billion years hence..then we will fly off to pluto and extract oil there and continue this debacle.

And whats worse is they are the generation of entitlement, they firmly believe its up to us to support them and their million dollar doctor bills all the while the current generation faces a steadily declining standard of living.

heres a pretty good explanation of the American condition and why they think and vote the way they do- JHK

in my opinion the republicans are just going through the motions at this point and i suspect that it was their agenda since day one because it's pretty much a clown show and they knew obama would take a second term. i mean geezzz look and who's there and their attributes haha crazies, philandering, greed.. ect.. it's crazy. don't get me wrong i'm not naive i know human nature but it's so very blatant and seems like they don't care whatsoever. i'd vote for ron if i thought he had a ligament chance but i really don't feel he does so i'm just hoping that obama can do better in his next 4 years, now that's being naive haha anyway.. we'll see what happens.

I'm American as apple pie. Born and raised here.

But I have also been to a few other countries. And I can tell you with a strait face that the Vast Majority of Americans are lazy, stupid, ignorant, greedy, self centered pieces of crap.

I have tried my damnedest to inform people of our monetary/economic debacle. And how our freedoms are being stripped away. And most people don't give a crap.

So you know what? Neither do I. First chance I get, I'm outta here.

Well if this is where youve hopped off where are you going to hop on? The problems we see in America are happening the world over. Economies are seeing rough times, governments arent listening to the wants of the people, people arent reacting quickly enough in an organized manner to oppose people in power etc.etc

If one thinks this is a uniquely American problem then they must not have caught wind of currentworld affairs. Further sitting around and mocking each others countries while we are all aboard the same sinking ship isnt helping matters at all.

The problem with America is that many people have been conditioned to rely on government for their needs and have forgotten how to earn things themselves. We have raised an entire generation of whiny brats who hold their hands out to big government for everything.

The problem with America is big government bureaucracy.

I like the fact that you grouped us instead of putting all the blame on America.

I don't need to, you see our country isn't going down the crapper and threatening to take the rest of the world with it - hence why us 'foreigners' have a vested interest in what the US does and doesn't do.

It's a natural result of globalisation - I would have thought you had already known this, or have you been putting blinders on, sticking your fingers in your ears and screaming "Lalala" to drown it out? - which is EXACTLY what this thread is about.

Yes but a good amount of American's are Hard working, Knowledgeable, compassionate, caring peoples. We're not all hand me outs. A lot of use like to do for ourselves.

It's called freedom, Sunshine. People are free to be as smart or as supid as they want to be. If you don't like it, you're free to vote for somone else, free to call those voters stupid, free to move, free to stay.

Free to rant.

The good thing about America is that it still has Americans living here.

Not exactly a good way to encourage decent discussion about the topic is it? Maybe you should try to stay on topic and discuss the issue at hand.

You don't have to be American to see what the problems of America are right now. In fact, not being from America may give you a better understanding...after all...we are copying our problems from many other failing countries right now.
