Post subject:  Why be proud?

We have burger kings serving beer, libraries letting you watch porn, men running whole communities that teach you to beat a woman into submission and rape young girls, we take a 3 year old girl away from her grandmother to place her with a sex offender that has no blood ties to her what so ever, and we let murderers walk and leave taxpayers to pick up the legal bill, while at the same time we are arresting innocent people. We have children being beaten, killed, and dismembered. Mothers and fathers are going missing with no trace. How can a man and a wife keep a child they kidnapped for 18 years? How could we fail all these people that have been on the news? How can we fail our children like this?
We have the DMV selling our personal information and the courts say it’s perfectly legal. We blatantly let people break the law and go as far as rewarding them for doing so. We are seeing more and more corruption in our political system, along with our trade and dealings with other countries.
We allowed our former president to out right commit war crimes and did NOTHING about it. He is a free man getting paid (for the rest of his life) because he once TRIED to run the country. Bush messed our country up so bad it is taking our new president years to even make a dent in all the mess. When Clinton was president he had an affair with a woman in his office. America made him into some kind of monster because of this. Why did we let Bush Jr. get away with so much more without a word?
How am I supposed to be proud to be American? Just because I can say what I feel, or drive a car, go to school? That does not matter if the rest of America is going to hell. I have all respect for the ones that have fought and died so I can sit here and bash on the actions of America and I am very grateful for that. But how can we sit back and let this happen? I also know that other countries are worse off but that does not make this okay. We are AMERICA. We are supposed to be better than this.
I am so disgusted with everything Americans are allowing to happen. When will this stop? I haven’t even scratched the surface of all the things going on in this country.

It's getting harder to be proud of this country. We import more than we export, our middle class is shrinking and our politics are extremely divided. America's debt is astronomical. How much longer can this go on?
