An OK country. Racism is a bit prominent, as is homophobia, and down south you get a lot of redneck bible nuts, but apart from that it's ok.
They have an annoying habit of taking responsibility for British inventions though. The lightbulb, democracy, the internet, the computer, the telephone and you did NOT "save our asses" in 2 world wars. In WW1 you only helped just before it ended in 1918, and in WW2 you joined late and only actually sent alot of troops to help us in 1944 when continually fighting without much help had left our army exhausted, etc, etc..
The constitution would be great apart from that huuuge typo wher it says "all men have the right to bear arms". It would have been more sane to say "All men have the right to arm bears".
But Bush has destroyed the country. He wanted oil so he invaded the middle east and turned out to be crap at invading and he didn't bring the soldiers back since he ccouldn't find enough oil, 65% of Americans are overweight, 33% are obese, the healthcare system is awful, the education system allows ignorant patriots to teach, they "bravely defend their country" by bombing small nations and the country is in tatters.
Most Americans are good people but the idiots control the government and the media and the country is becoming increasingly crappy.
Idiot American: My fellow Americans, I will gladly bomb Mecca to erase this filth from the USA
Fat idiot American: Yeah! Let's all bomb small countries!
Sane americans: stfu stupid pig
The only country keeping penguins from coquering the Earth
If it weren't for the USA, penguins would have destroyed humans long ago.
A country that regards itself as the greatest in the world but only 10% of americans have passports. How would they know then?
Are you going to Europe on holiday or the USA? Where's Europe?
Stands for United States of America
. Was initially a colonial territory of Great Britain before declaring independance in 1776. Initially founded on the principle that a central government should only exist to provide security to its people and its borders without intruding on personal freedom and civil liberties. Government was to be focused more on the individual states' powers rather than that of federal ones. Certain recent events probably have the Founding Fathers turning over in their graves, as the great nation they created slowly degenerates into a Police State; something they feared greatly and took great measures to write the Constitution to prevent it. Unfortunately, when the majority of the citizens, and the government, ignore the Constitution, it doesn't help much.
While America certainly is full of ignorant and/or rude assholes, there are still plenty of honest, good, independant thinkers. Of course, many of us are planning to leave the country. To all those that bash Americans, please remember that not all of us are awful and many of us think the same way you do - have gripes with our government, but not solely with us.
the country where i live, run by a stupid f*ckhead and is going to shite.
"i live in the usa, but im moving when i'm old enough."
The USA stands for corruption. It stands for money and greed. Its a giant billboard on the side of every road saying, "Be thankful you don't have a lot of Oil!" It's not interested in fighting terrorism, terrorism makes it stronger than ever. It's about power. Its about control. Its funny really because the USA (now) stands for exactly what its citizens are against. Its funny and its sad, sad because we really had potential.
Example 1 - An educated citizen in the USA makes a lot less money per year then the average politician.
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.
