Unfortunately, it took many years for the American government to recognize civil rights written by the Founding Fathers years before. Women were not given rights until the early 20th century. Black people were persecuted until the 60's. And even today, homosexual couples can only marry in Massachusetts. This is because of the incredibly Christian government America has. They believe gay marriage isn't what God allows as marriage. And they fail to realize that the Founding Fathers separated church and state.
America is rapidly becoming a target for hatred all around the world. The USA saved many people in the World Wars, but Its reputation was shattered with the presidency of George W. Bush. He invaded two countries (Afghanistan and Iraq) simply because they were Islamic nations and the man who sent people to attack the USA was a jihadist. Many countries fail to realize that the US government is responsible for the invasion, not the American people.
With prices rising, rights fading, and religious nuts controlling the country, the USA is slowly headed towards feudalism. In a hundred years, citizens of America may be living in the same conditions as medeival Europeans. But if we rise against the government, the USA will once again become a democracy.
Example 2 - When the USA realized how much oil was in the middle east, they decided to make enemies instead of friends with the natives, concluding that its cheaper to steal then it is to buy.
Example 3 - I am an average working American, and I don't blame the world for hating the USA. I feel so stuck here.
Example 3 - The biggest idiots can become leaders in the USA. Thats a recipe for disaster.
