The United States of America, the greatest country in the world, the land of the free.
So why is it that over half the nations of the world hate us?
And why is it that we are giving billions of dollars to these nations when we have unemployed, starving and homeless people right here at home?
Why do we send our young men and women to foreign lands to fight and die for causes that are none of our business and do nothing to better the lives of our people?
Why do we have to be the police for the whole world?
Why do our own representatives have to be so corrupt, choosing to get into bed with special interest groups and corporate giants to the detriment of their own constituents?
Why can’t we forget about the rest of the world and their greed and take care of our own? Is it because of our own greed?
Why do we have a tax code so voluminous and complicated that we need CPAs and tax lawyers just to know what we need to give to support our voluminous government? And while we’re at it, why do we need a tax code at all? Everyone just needs to agree via voting, the services that our government needs to provide, then we each need to pay the same percentage. Why is that so hard?
Why does the federal government have to stick its nose into nearly every aspect of our lives when this country was founded on the premise that the states could handle most of their own matters without federal interference?
Can’t we just stay home and solve our own problems?
Who in the hell do we think we are?
We are supposed to be, “One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
