The US - great in theory.
They have people starving, requiring food stamps, requiring handouts outside their woefully under supportive welfare system that punishes and demonises the poor - their wealth divide is insane and none of it is 'trickle down economics', the poorest in America are only getting poorer but everyone isn't particularly bothered as the 'American dream' and ideas of the 'free market deciding' perpetuate all levels of their society never mind that places like Detroit, Compton and others are so poor that crime is all but a necessity. Its no coincidence this abject poverty breeds crime in enormous numbers. Its freidmann esque, the market will correct even though a lot of undocumented workers drive down and undercut the minimum wage pushing out people who need a legal employment and the wage it promises to live - on average American citizens are the most indebted in the western world.
Their politics are crazy, Obama threatened to put the UK to the back of the queue then just quietly gave up, Trump is a documented liar and charlatan who only looks like a good option because a) he says whatever he likes and people are tired of being told how to speak and b) Clinton threatened her husbands rape victims, laughed when she helped a child molester (acquitted) cheat a polygraph test, lies compulsively (landing under sniper fire in Bosnia for example of a pointless lie because it changed nothing), plays on people (wasn't a feminist until she ran for election now she plays the woman card every three seconds) and is generally a disgrace. Sanders policies were actually impossible and half of the voters give an answer 'because they are x or y' ie because they're a democrat and cannot answer a simple question on what that person actually has as policies which is exemplified in their debates where they just [email protected]
each other off for an hour to the bays of the crowd like its a particularly aggressive pantomime. Their political commentators are crazy spinning everything Alex Jones style, even congressman(?) Trey Gowdy (I think) who I like because he's a human BS detector has some out there views.
Plus their gun lobbies are crazy on both sides. On the one side you've got people going on about banning assault weapons (that isn't actually a type of gun, that's a made up category) and on the other people who hold the constitution to be politically invariable as if in modern day America you need a gun in case a tyrannical government sends the army to your house (the questionability of the US government is more insidious now with laws and police enforcement being geared towards a more subtle control) when was the last time a citizen shot a police officer for violating their fundamental rights and got acquitted in a court? I'd wager about 1894.
I don't actually dislike America but its practices are very odd
