    Political Correctness. There are too many laws being passed that regulates what people can/can't do. All in the name of PC and "health". This is not how America was designed to be. It is the Government that is suppose to be limited. NOT the people.

    I voted Federal Reserve, party spin-doctors, 2-party system, coporate elite, and government corruption. All play their role well.

    We need lawyers though, someone needs to defend the people from the state.

    Populism. American culture has been infected with a growing anti-intellectualism, disdain for academics steming from the Populist period onward. The cult of the Common Man and mass participation has lead to "too much democracy" and too much politics. Politics has been dumbed down and further declined into a popularity log-rolling contest.

    Public assistance programmes aren't really that bad. The United States has a very weak welfare system, so people don't actually have it that easy when they fail. Other countries with far greater, more generous programmes actually have greater income mobility from the poor to the middle classes.

    Depends on how you design the system.

    I don't agree with all of that but it was well reasoned-hence the thanks

    Re: What has Damaged America the Most?

    Edit: I should amend a my statement.

    There are a few other problems.

    1. Politics has become less serious. It's more of a game now. We even call them "races," where people huddle down into "teams" against one another, voting for candidates because he's part of the tribe, not really because of what he proposes. We have so much politics, it's all been trivalized into another sport.

    2. "political saturation." The United States seems to be in a permanent election cycle. There is practically no down time to think and reflect. One race ends, another begins. It's gotten to absurd, that right after the last Presidential Election, people were planning and talking about the next election.

    Peope are therefore bombarded non-stop with political messages, media advertisements, and opportunities to participate on so many levels (local, state, federal etc). Combined with the dead-lock system we have, where nothing ever seems to get accomplished, I think it produces feelings of apathy and sensory overstimulation. Who really has the time to analyze all the issues in all this mass politics? And who actually has the skills or wants to do it? Debates are almost useless, television focuses on sound bites, because people have 5 second attenton spans, and politicians can say almost anything, because 90% of the electorate has no expertise in any of the topics they're talking about. It's sad and pointless.

    I hate voting. I hate politics. I only rarely go out, and even then, I am only choosing between a **** sandwich and a crap bagel.


    And thanks

    They also find ways to allow the state to be stupid.
