I created two threads.....one telling people that scream the USA is the greatest country in the world to STFU. I'm only readdressing this because I fear I am going to be labeled as a blind flag waver, which I'm not. Please read the first link if you don't believe me. http://www.lpsg.org/91884-people-say-us-greatest-country.html And then the other one saying they hate the USA to STFU. http://www.lpsg.org/91885-people-say-usa-sucks-rant.html Here are the two links. Now I coverd both sides, and the one that got the most attention and cause the most debate/arguments was the later. I find this pretty interesting, I went on a very long rant speaking about what is wrong with this country and there were only like 10 replies, versus the 120+ in the other. I was attempting to explain that the people on both extremes are not correct. My attempt on this wasn't to insult people by suggesting that if it wasn't for us everyone would be living in caves. The point was that as a Nation, we have done good for our neighbors since our creation. If you want to say the "US is messed up right now and they need to get their shit together" I'll sit down and have a beer with you and agree. We have a lot of things we need fixed, read my first thread. It's not an Administration issue or government issue, I believe a huge problem is our citizens for various reasons. And like in my first thread, if you are the type blindly saying the USA is the best and the rest of you all suck, you can sit down and shut up too. Being a good person and or nation is stepping up and seeing your faults instead of sitting by and watching things go down the proverbial toilet. Put down the beer cozy get off your ass and do something for society other than watching sportscenter all day and waxing your truck. Extremeist on either side of any issue are typically unreasonable. I was just trying to have people on both sides of this extreme to understand that the truth of what the US is as a nation, falls somewhere in the middle. We screw up, we do good, we have good intentions but sometimes fall short. We're like that older brother that's 30, drinks Jager, still lives in your parents basement, picking up college girls, still learning and making mistakes but you still wouldn't want to fuck with him, his family or friends cause he will still crack all the bones in your body with a ball peen hammer. I'm talking about our citizens, not the government. Regardless of politics, we as a nation of people will always stand next to our friends that are in need. Peace.
