I agree, except replace country with world.
Our government is running rampant, constantly waging wars and killing civilians.
People get incredibly offended when they're told that, but it's truth. It's fact. They act like America is incapable of committing any wrongs, and
even when shown incontrovertible proof it is denied. Then it gets dropped as the new fad or controversy gets it's prime time pumping for everyone to
latch on to.
And to top it off, these people are the ones who call anyone who says anything anti-American as haters or just that; anti-American. The, "if you
don't like it you can get the hell out!" compared to "I don't like it but I will support your right to vocalize it."
And for the cherry, when people from others countries criticize Americans for our blatant hipocricy they're told to get their grubby noses out of our
business. Yet, and here's how the circle completes itself, our policy makers have their grubby fingers in countries where they don't belong.
This is why Americans are not taken seriously and do not deserve to be. A McDonalds ad on Facebook gets 19 million likes but something American such
as a Ron Paul interview have maybe 10,000.
And when these events, such as the riot, happen we sit here like a bunch of idiots talking about how stupid our society is yet we are that society.
This country literally redefines sheep, wolves, and pigs.
