Yes. I am well aware.

We claim to be the most free democracy on earth but all the nonbiased polls place us near the bottom of the list.

If you actually look and see what rights people have in other democratic nations it becomes very apparent that we have been lied to; in the UK people have a right to wander. They can walk through and hang around for a reasonable amount of time on private property so long as they do no harm.

Here we have castle laws. If someone catches you walking on their land they can shoot you dead no questions asked.

In the US we are oppressed. The difference is that mostly we oppress one another instead of some big government doing it...but there is some of that going on too.

Weed is illegal. We have no right to healthcare. Price gouging is tolerated on all but the most extreme levels.

Millionaires are allowed to slowly gain control over our food supply.

The USA is a sad fucking joke compared to what it was "supposed" to be.

Love it or leave it? If it was that simple we'd be depopulated in a decade. Americans are unwanted by civilized nations because they know the damage that has been done to most of our headpsaces by this system.

They dont want violent puritan idiots pouring into their countries. Are we all like that? Of course not. But that is the image our country has created for us.

Not to mention the IRS has fucked up rules for expats

I am not from the US but I strongly disagree with your thinking.

Free world 😂 That’s laughable itself. But yes I’m aware. More aware that humans are parasite to the planet and nobody will care where you’re from when we’re all floating with fishes.

yeah, but when they need a bailout - who you gonna call?

hell sometimes you don't even have to ask and we'll send troops to "libertate you"

Absolutely. As an American, we deserve all the flak we get. Just look at some of these other comments, ffs. It’s embarrassing.🤦‍♀️
I’m not American but it seems most Americans don’t care what the rest of the world thinks.

Yes, but I live under a rock and who cares what foreigners think anyways
LordShadowfire · 46-50, M
I gave you a sarcastic vote for the first option, but yes. I'm fully aware.

Many countries have it hard right now so I doubt that.
samueltyler2 · 80-89, M
they may laugh, but many would trade that in an instant!
DiegoWolfe · 36-40
and 100% agree with all the reasons why
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Just the president.
Alison · 18-21, F
@MrBrownstone nah its the whole place I can assure you and most of the residents
uncalled4 · 51-55, M
America is far from perfect. Someone ought to tell the thousands risking their lives to get in here every day. What a scam!
deadteddy · F
No such thing as free world
val70 · 51-55
Well, you're quite wrong
