The title says it all.
How your country could allow itself to be in the mess that it is I fail to understand.
Your Constitution is still a world leader and your history, although shallow in years has depth in its breadth and has crammed a lot in since 1766.
The statue in NY harbour meant so much to so many, a beacon of hope for the oppressed and a lot of your countrymen gave their lives in successive wars
to enshrine all of this into the cultural racial mix that is USA.
Many times I have visited your country, I love it and it's true people of all colours and creeds, so hospitable, the deep history of the South, for
all it's problems with slavery, still holds a fascination and the traditions of the Gullahs and the Geechees have left a footprint on the

Get a grip over the pond, be less materialistic in your rose tinted views that the majority see life through.
Off you go then, don't spend so much time listening to the shills and ne'er do wells that frequent ATS, stop being Sheeple and show your true
colours. Time to wake up.
