One of the most racist countries in the West. A country that - since 9/11 - has acted pathetically internationally. One that runs around the world, bombing countries at will (committing technical acts of war), detaining innocent people for over a decade, torturing others and flat out invading countries when they don't like their regime and almost always leaving the place FAR worse off then when they arrived. A country that is so obsessed with terrorism that it monitors it's own citizens private communications and limits freedoms and rights of those same citizens in the name of 'public safety'. A country that spends far, FAR more then all it's potential enemies several times over on defence - and yet much of America's population actually wants more defence spending. And despite this obsession with terrorism and the gigantic amounts of money spent to fight it, terrorist organizations are FAR stronger now then before 9/11 AND far too many Americans have become spineless and cower in fear whenever a terrorist goes 'boo' - even half way around the world.
A country which prides itself on 'free enterprise' is now one whose economy is practically run by bankers at the Fed.
A country which is broke and getting broker every day and whose economy is still stumbling along in mediocrity despite massive government stimuli and zero interest rates.
A country that is so incredibly backwards that it just now passed a same sex marriage law that is WAAAAAY behind the curve in the West International | Freedom to Marry Being proud of a country that now allows gay marriage is like being proud of your child for not bullying the neighbourhood children any longer. Sure, it's good he stopped doing it, but it was pathetic that he was doing it in the first place.
Before 9/11, America was a country to be proud of. Now, imo, it is a country that at the very least has lost it's way. And at the most has become a sad excuse for a great power.
