No... money isn't evil, how can it be? It has no soul, no mind, no heart. You can do good things with money or bad things. Yes, America is a capitalist country, if that makes us evil in your eyes then thats your problem.
I'm sorry to hear you have no faith in our government. That means you have no faith in American people either.
Save me the humble poor man routine, it won't work on me. I paid my own way through college, a maritime academy actually, and made my own money too. Yes, my job as a marine engineer does pay quite a bit more than 50k a year, does that make me evil? I donate to charities on a regular basis and am currently helping a sibling through college. I don't mind helping my family out, but I do mind paying taxes to help some low-life that doesn't want to work hard to succeed. SOmeone that decides "why work? The government will give me money."
You've read many of my posts I'm sure, so I won't go further into details. I'm also sure that you wouldn't agree with me on many things I have to say anyways. I read between the lines also, but I guess I can see the good points of living in the USA. Its much easier to see the bad points because they are thrust at you on a continous basis by media, liberals, and disgruntled Americans.
I'm sorry but I won't bash my president or my country.

This thread is great!
The reason so many Americans, such as myself, voted for Bush is that we thought he was the better man for the job.
