I see and hear people who say that America is the greatest country in the world. They speak about diversity, freedoms, and then they go off on other tangents. Let me tell you, we are NOT the greatest country in the world. We are only leading the world in three categories.
1) How many people are incarcerated
2) Our religion
3) Our defense budget. We are better or equal to 26 other countries, 25 of whom are allies.
There are 207 sovereign states in this country, and 180 of them have freedom. We are low on the education scale, we have crooked politicians all across the board serving PAC’s more so than the American people. We have a president who is lying to the people, but they all lie and have their own agenda so what’s the point in singling out one?
We are the worst generation ever to hit politics. Sorry. We are uneducated, and we cling to the one person who we see in a news clip that agrees with what we do. We don’t hardly ever get the facts, most of the time because we either can’t or are too lazy to be educated about them. We don’t care, but yet we complain.
Nothing ever gets done in Congress, because of PAC’s(ever see those commercials that say ‘paid for by the citizens of *insert crappy politician here*?’ That’s a PAC.) and everything gets knocked down because everyone else has commitments to their PACS, and the attachments conflict so nothing ever gets done.
I want to go back to the America that used to fight for something, that wasn’t so tainted by greed. I mean, let’s not be naive greed will always exist, however it wasn’t this prevalent. I want to go back to not scaring easy, and to fighting for morals. I want to go back to the country who wasn’t so afraid to speak their opinion, and claim God. I want a country that fights for what is right again.
America should have been left the hell alone. Now, we have lost so much, we may never find it again. That scares me, and it should scare you too.
