1. Homelessness. Millions of american people (including children) have no homes and are ignored by the government.
1: Trust me, the USA is doing better than most other countries of our giant size; and we aren't ignoring them out of spite.
If we aren't ignoring them, then why are they homeless? I will admit that there are a lot of people out there that are looking for a free handout. But what about those who have no choice - like kids, the eldery, and the sick? I suppose letting them live on the streets without acknowledging that they exist isn't ignoring them?
2. Health Insurance. If we are such a great nation, then how is it that we can't insure almost 50% of our population?
2: Because we aren't a socialist nation. The only socialist precedence in the USA's history started chiefly in the early 1900's and onto the New Deal era. I think most citizens are too used to sitting on their ass and waiting for a free handout.
A good point about socialism. But that still doesn't explain why this country is unable to insure almost 50% of its population. We can insure the elderly (Medicare) and the disabled (Medicaid), but we can't insure everyone else without people thinking we are socialist?
3. Education. Remember "No Child Left Behind"?
3: Let's see you try to fix education. Stop fucking pointing the finger and think about how you would start everything that didn't include pissing people off with taxes.
Do you think before you write? The government passed this so called "bill" into law, and therefore it becomes the responsibility of the government to do something about it. And seeing as you brought up taxes, I would like to point out that I think people who have children should be taxed more than people without them. If you have children, you should be paying more taxes for schools.
And don't everyone jump on me at once about how people with kids should get more tax breaks so they can live. Blah blah blah. Sick of hearing it. If you're so fucking broke, then keep your pants on and stop having children that you can't take care of.
4. Economics. I don't need to point out the recession, do I?
4: Recessions happen all of the time. The economy is prone to dips... stop thinking slippery slope.
Yes, the economy is prone to ups and downs. But that doesn't mean the government is doing anything about it. In fact, our current recession is a combination of the war in iraq, the housing crisis, the fed cutting the interest rate, and our dependence on foreign oil.
5. Dependence on foreign oil. It's about time the government actually lets an alternative fuel source become mainstream.
5: A decent point of yours. Why should we depend on someone else who can fuck us? (Also think of US citizens depending on everything from their govt as well, and look up the original definition of a govt--and our govt as well).
The thought started off intelligently, and then you took a left-turn at idiotic. Re-read the declaration of independence - of the people, by the people, and for the people.
6. Outsourcing of american jobs. Yeah, China gets all the work and america gets screwed.
6: Get over it. The US govt has no control over privately-owned corporations...
But the US government does have control over who gets what tax breaks. And if they are giving bigger tax breaks to companies that outsource their jobs to foreign countries, then I would have to say that the government DOES have control over privately owned corporations. If you owned a major company and had the choice between taking a $1000 tax deduction for ever job you outsourced or only $500 for every job you kept here, which would you do? Sounds to me like our government wants jobs outsourced. (disclaimer - the numbers above are in no way verified for their accuracy. So don't ask me where I got them from)
You have no fucking idea what you are talking about AA... people like you are a disease. The US govt doesn't treat anyone bad, they just don't hold their hand the whole time; the same goes with China's govt, although they have some control over business a few are privatized and working by their own agenda--thus their govt has no part in their injustices directly.
The next time you want to spout off about me being a disease, I think you should check what you are talking about. Our government does treat people badly, and they have passed laws that allow them to do so legally. Don't believe me? Read the Patriot Act. Better yet, read the constitution again, especially the part about how the government and the military have the ability to use privately owned homes during times of need.
