Is America going to become a big joke one day?First to begin I am American so don't think I am foreigner who just hates the USA. I came to the realization that the US is built to keep the weak and the poor down. Think about it, what other countries you know use the Social Security System and make citizens pay for health care?? Sure we have the best health care but it doesn't come in handy if you cant afford it.
While growing up I use to think the USA was the best place in the world, but now that I am grown I realized I don't have that much freedom.
When I was eighteen I was immature so I decided to take out a loan to buy a vehicle instead of just buying a cheap car with cash. Eventually I defaulted on my car loan and the car was repossessed, although I already paid off the bank like 2 years ago the repossession still shows up on my credit report. Now the sad thing about the US is that your credit score is linked to EVERYTHING (your name might as well be those 9 numbers...jk)
So because of this I cant get loans, certain jobs that require a clearance, I was even denied an apartment once because of that. So as you can see the system is designed to mess up your life once you make one mistake. I would have understood if I was felon but all of this is unnecessary for a car that was repossessed 5 years.....ALSO paid off for in full
The second thing is health care. When I visited the Caribbean I was able to buy my asthma inhalers at a pharmacy for $20 (that's like $4 in the US). No prescription was required since asthma is a deadly chronic lung disease.
Apparently the department of health doesn't really care about that in the US, for me to obtain an inhaler I would have to see a doctor for a prescription. Without health coverage that would cost around $500 including the visit to the doctor (probably more). So by going to another country I saved around $450+.
So why do other countries offer free health care? Is it because they care about the survival of their citizens and the US only cares about money?
The way I see it the US shouldn't be fighting a war because we are already fighting amongst ourselves. The US government was so busy screwing over its own people that they didn't realize that terrorist groups were plotting against them. Then the government was forced to put out more tax dollars to send thousands of troops to the middle east to find Bin Laden.
Us US citizens are being crewed from all sides, I guess that's how the US government obtains its power. They design strategies to keep the poor down and they charge and tax us for EVERYTHING, they don't even care if we live or die.......really sad.......but then again this is 'the land of opportunity, and the land of the free'........who ever said that had to be rich.......lol
