“What is wrong with America?”

May 23, 2007


Ok, I am sick of this phrase that has turned into a cliche. Why is it that people love to tear America down?  They whine and complain and blame and pout and pass laws and make you feel guilty for anything and everything.  It’s all bad.  After every bad thing that happens, whether it be a shooting like V Tech or some wacko group that does something, the question is always asked “What is wrong with America?”. 

Politicians on both sides of the isle play this up big time around election time.  No matter how great something is they will point out SOMETHING about it that is bad.  Liberals love to bring America down.  It makes them feel good about themselves.  That is true with many people though.  Bringing someone else down in the hopes it will make you shine.  John Kerry and Bill Clinton love to go over to other countries and rip America and American values.  What is wrong with these people?

Question asked to GOP Presidential Candidates at last debate: “What do you dislike most about America.”  ???????

What in the world is a question like that?
