Let's look at American mentality for a second; congress has an 11% approval rating but just had a 96% re-election rate
You're joking! You're going to elect Obama again?

We'll see. Keep one thing in mind; no US president has ever died under the same flag that he was born under and unless states separate into more than one, I don't see us getting anymore states anytime soon. Certain parts of this country have a serious disconnect from the rest. You can already see that with states making laws which contradict federal law. This is something that states have always been allowed to do but usually remained united with the fed which made it stronger overall. More and more people in the US are looking more toward local rather than national government these days.

Yes i am still proud of America, is this the reason behind all this? trying to make us not proud of being American? a lot of us are very patriotic and love our country and we don't plan on changing that fact so i wouldn't waste your time.

btw a good chunk of that list is false and some of those aren't even bad things.


oh i see...
well enjoy homophobicness,racism,gun crime and corruption.don't even bother proving other countries are worse like always.
peace

Well, I don't know the man personally, Summerwhale, but the decisions he's made on behalf of his fellow Americans.... I think this emoticon says it better than words ever could. YMMV.

What regions are disconnected from the rest? with advanced technology we seem to grow closer together.

Are you talking about over hyped political division between republicans and democrats?
