Top 10 Worst Things About the United States

The Top Ten
1 Poor Education

Teachers in the US keep teaching us random, useless stuff, and they have no respect for struggling kids with ADHD or autism. It's really not fair. Also, kids at my school always bully, make assumptions about people for no reason, and say unnecessary and rude things like "your mom," "Dude, nobody asked you," or "that's your problem, dummy." Adults just don't do anything about it these days.

They punish you for no reason, such as studying for a test during "reading time" or just saying one or two words to somebody while you're supposed to be quiet. My science teacher always gave somebody silent lunch for talking when that should have been their first warning. Teachers often punish good kids for reasons like assuming they are doing inappropriate stuff on their laptop because they are holding it on their lap, but they're actually working. I'm not saying it's the teachers' fault. It's because the country and state don't care about how teachers do their jobs well or help students learn, since they get paid too low.

2 Racism

I don't understand. Most people assume all Muslims are terrorists, even though the terrorist groups don't stand for the entire country. Blacks are viewed as unintelligent crackheads, and many citizens view Hispanic people as criminals. We all have problems, and we all sin. As a Christian, I know that we are forgiven for our sins, but this doesn't mean that we should continue making the same mistakes over and over again.

Diversity is a good thing, and you should get to meet many people within your lifetime. I am positive that you will meet good people of all races and ethnicities. Racism is a problem, and only the best of us know how to solve it. If you truly are a good person, you will see where you have wronged and will try to redeem yourselves so you can grow as a human being.

3 Stupid People

I definitely know we need better education, and it really starts there. Teachers can be abusive, unable to prepare students for life, and cover too much material in one class, making it overly difficult. You see classes with a third or more students failing with Fs in easy courses.

Apart from that, we have health problems, and problems valuing intelligence and creativity, and often live in a world based largely on social smarts. This effect seems to dumb us down as we use only a fraction of our brain as it is. We need better standards and to cease bathing in ignorance, self-pity, and reckless addictions.

4 Democrats

Clearly the greatest threat to our democracy. Whatever they accuse the right of doing is exactly what THEY are doing, and it's so obvious it's laughable.

Democrats are the party for the 1%. They've always been against blacks and now the tables have turned. They promise empty promises for people to get their votes.

They're just a bunch of commies at this point. They're obsessed with race to the point where it's like a cult, and it kind of scares me.

5 Joe Biden Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (born November 20, 1942) is an American politician who is the 46th and current president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 under Barack Obama and represented Delaware in the United States Senate from... read more

Needs no explanation, really. See my "Not so fast" post correcting this goon's so-called "accomplishments" if you do need an explanation.

You can summarize Joe Biden in one word: left-wing baboon with dementia. Obviously, this is a play on one of his comments.

I've never met a die-hard Biden fan in my life. The dude is a doofus. He needs to retire already.

6 Government Corruption

Pretty obvious why I picked this. The government is more worried about making sure they're more in power than the people are, so much so that they put laws against women, members of the LGBTQ community, people of color, and children.

We have so much of it. We like to say Mexico is super corrupt, but come on, we have just as much corruption as Mexico. Canada is way better.

Throw them all out and get average Americans to do the job. Then vote in term limits.

7 Gay Rights

People who are gay, lesbian, or bisexual are still human beings with feelings, emotions, and personalities. It disgusts me that there are still people out there who feel like "throwing up" when they see either two men or two women together romantically. What does your life have to do with gay people's lives? Nothing. You have absolutely no right to call it a "lifestyle" and have anything to do with their lives.

You don't wake up in the morning and say, "Today, I'm going to be straight!" So, why do you think gay people choose to be gay? Also, the people who throw God into the argument, like those who say, "I don't hate gays, it's just that I'm Catholic/Christian/any religion, and God says it's a sin to be gay," well, it's not a sin for you to love the opposite gender, so why is it a sin to love the same gender?

8 Bad Economy

Growing income inequality and a disappearing middle class!

9 Obesity

It's not so much obesity itself, but the stereotypes that we're all obese. Yes, a third of us are... but what about the other two-thirds? I know people who might become anorexic because everyone thinks Americans are so fat.

And fat people aren't lazy. Many people have eating disorders or problems within their body that make them obese. My parents are both overweight, and they work their butts off every day. I do wish they were healthy, but at the same time, it doesn't make them worse people. Stop with the stereotypes, people. We have enough problems in the world without making up our own.

10 Drugs

I personally like drugs and substances. We can respect that some people need some way to get high, and that is part of America and our lifestyle. Sadly, many things we use are hurtful and unhealthy, people die of overdoses and addictions, and our kids can be hurt by both drugs and fried-out parents. It really is a mixed issue.

Drugs, other than for medicinal use, are a terrible, horrible thing that destroys people's lives. Why anyone would consider taking drugs in the first place is beyond me.

We have a huge drug epidemic. I've been to Bakersfield, an awful town, and there were drug users everywhere.

The Contenders
11 Illegal Immigrants
12 Gun Shooters

The USA has countless incidents that involve firearms. Not only at schools, but also at other locations such as a nightclub back in Florida and a concert back in Las Vegas. Also, Americans own guns not only because of the 2nd Amendment but also to show the true power of being American.

Nowadays, some people use guns for the wrong reasons. There have been gun rampages on academic grounds such as Columbine, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook, and recently one in Florida. Some people use them to end their lives. Others can be used for the destruction of property. The Americans have gone too far with this issue. This is why I plan on living outside the USA.

13 Celebrities Break the Law
14 Has a Bad President

Oh, the United States is only bad because Obama's president! Oh, the United States is falling apart because of Obama! Really, people, why does everyone blame the president? It's like people can't blame anyone else for the problems today but Obama.

In general, most of the presidents are worse than Obama. But the US has, and maybe always will have, a corrupt government.

I like Obama, but he's not a good president. At least, he's better than Bush.

15 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States... read more

I didn't really like him, but Biden is worse.

16 People Who Bash Christians

This was never a problem when I was growing up, but now you even have political persecution against Christians. Four Christians praying on a sidewalk in front of an abortion clinic get 11 years in prison. Really? This is now a banana republic.

I'm a Christian who respects Atheists! And even if you are an atheist, rules like being nice from the Bible still count!

Last time I checked, we had freedom of religion.

17 Crooked Cops

Most cops are good. Only a small percentage are criminals.

18 People Who Say Bad Words

Nobody's perfect. Just do your best to respect others!

Even old people and small children do it.

People say bad words everywhere.

19 Child Abuse
20 School Shootings

They are bad, way too many. There should be zero.

21 The left controls everything

The media for sure. The problem is, no one sees it on the left or in the middle.

22 Two-Tiered Justice System

It's become obvious as of late with Trump and Biden. It's a total shame, and I'm highly disappointed in the Democrats (average person) who doesn't stand up against this. I guess they hate one person so much they are willing to overlook the travesty.

23 Profit Based Health Care System

It makes it the most expensive in the world.
