Insert here a long winded self-defined set of "freedoms" and "liberties" which happen to match what my culture will have me believe is important.


When you look at real things that matter, the US is the developed nation with the most overtly expressed racism, homophobia and bigotry. The US has the worst level of education. The US has the most people who are not covered by a satisfactory health insurance.

The US is a place where organised religion is slowly triumphing over science and where individual people are finding it increasingly difficult to have a say in how they are governed.

Next time you feel like telling us how great the US is, please can it. You are only exposing your ignorance of the outside world.

Thank you

I would like to politely remind the alert reader that not everyone thinks that the US is the pinnacle of democracy and human effort.
