Top Ten Problems With America

Wow, where to start? Drugs, violence, corruption, war, the Jonas brothers... My fellow Americans, we're in a pretty crappy spot :( What is our biggest issue today, and what can we do to solve it? We have a thousand issues, so I wanna see a thousand issues on here too!

The Top Ten

1 Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

I do not understand his "Build the Wall" campaign. For one it is going to cost billions and America is already in debt. Guess I need to buy a plane ticket to Jamaica...

Global warming is killing coral reefs. And are we just going to let trump turn Everywhere beautiful in the country into factory plants? No - lemur

I still Hate Trump and his fans! Global warming deniers are just like Holocaust ones! Saying global warming is a myth is just as worse than saying Heil Hitler, screaming death to Jews and planning to build concentration camps! I do believe in Global Warming because it happens since forever and I know about the Holocaust very well. It's a sad, bloody and violent event where the innocent Jews being labeled as inferior to the Nazis also known by themselves as Aryan or the master race and sent into the Gloomy confiments, where spirits are crushed, loss of self identity until they die called Concentration camps! Never forget the Holocaust same thing with Global Warming. - Jeanclaudejunior

He is already trying to get rid of reusable fuels (Solar, Wind, etc...) and replace them with coal. He is cutting down the EPA too and will make it so that the Earth is choked by pollution! Not only that he is extremely racist & xenophobic. Even his business ventures were largely unsuccessful with the bank declaring Trump bankrupt 6 times! I truly believe that he will be one of the worst presidents in the U.S. for years to come.

I agree that this is a bad thing, but he's trying to help America out of debt. Or at least eliminate the debt. I disagree with you on Trump being one of the worst presidents ever. Obama was, In my eyes (key words my eyes). Obama didn't salute to any of the soldiers he walked past, and it was clear he didn't know anything about how much of a presence our military has in this world, there is a reason we are called a WORLD SUPER POWER. - BigMac2018

This is not correct Donald Trump is a great president he might not have such great ideas but he is getting us out of debt for the most part. I think Donald Trump is a great president and his Build a wall thing is bad but security on the border could be advance greatly

2 No Respect For The Rest of The World

This is very true about Americans. Every other country except for themselves is portrayed negatively and incorrectly in their films and T.V. shows

Yeah, who doesn't enjoy being lumped into a group of stereotypical people by other people who don't know what jokes are! - ObviouslyNotATroll

Ya, we're some pretty arrogant a**holes arent we?

America is a very powerful and wealthy country, they sometimes use this power and wealth to benefit other countries, but mostly they do the opposite. I'm sure not all Americans are like this, this is only probably the majority who think people from other countries are inferior and are easy to underestimate and undermine.

America is a rich and strong country, but they began to get so selfish that they do not think about other countries that also needs a good law, a good army, a good economy and a good president. Everything must be about them and only them instead of taking care of each other on this planet.

3 Racism

Racism is not good. It should come to an end. God wanted different nationalities for a reason. He wanted all of us to get along and love each other, not hate because of what happened in the past. Let's not bring back the past. Just because your white doesn't mean you are better than people who are black. Everyone is the same. We just have to learn how to love each other for who we are not what we look like. I'm only 12 and I hope when I grow up Racism isn't a problem anymore. You shouldn't treat anyone differently. The golden rule for socializing for me is "Treat people how you want to be treated". I really want to grow up in a non racist community. I live in Hawaii and there is already a problem with homeless. I don't want to see a bunch of racist people in the world. When I grow up I want to go somewhere where racism isn't a problem. Thank that is all.

Yeah I hate Racism in the USA, so what if your Black and I'm white we're both humans but with different skin color? So what? I really don't see why the 1 race should think they are better than the other race. I never get white supremacy it's stupid and retarded. The Racists that really nark me are The Americans who are racist then claim to be Christian. If they were true then they would see GOD just wants us to all live as 1. Jesus told us to love each other not Hate, Criticize or Judge each other he condemned all those things. The answer is to Love each other always we are all Brothers and sister's in God's eyes and we should ALL live in peace & Unity regardless of Skin color or ethnicity.

Racism is not good no one should make fun of someone just because the color of there skin

We are all the same really. You've got a head, 2 eyes, a nose, hands, feet. If aliens came down to earth to attack us and take over the world they would think we all look the same.

People that say "not just black lives matter, all lives matter"; really get under my skin because OBVIOUSLY! all lives matter but black people aren't feeling like they actually do matter. Let me ask you this. Have you ever been a black person before? If not then you don't really know how little it matters to others. Being racial profiled all your life is not fun. You just see that little difference in a person's personal that makes you feel some type of way, and you know it's because of your skin tone. You can be the most educated, successful and respectable person but still be discriminated against. Human beings ALWAYS need a group to pick on. It's disgusting really. Now the Muslims can't even practice there religion -which is there right as an American- with out getting looks or comments about ...more

China and India are destroying the environment. No matter how much the US tries, those two countries will ruin the planet.

5 The Education System

If the people were educated properly, with a full unfiltered understanding of history, with no bias-ism, over half of these problems would diminish and there would be such a thing again as 'common sense'.

Ok, I'm gonna go on a full out rant on this. First of all, education has really gone down in our country. And yes, if you look at my profile, I live in Massachusetts. But, now you're probably thinking "Massachusetts has an awesome education system! ". But, my school, not so much. In my English class (ELA) we didn't do much work. We ate food, threw the food, played on our tablets, and some got pretty bullied. The reason it was that bad was because the teacher was too nice. His punishment for students misbehaving was banishing them to the hallway! And plus, we took quizzes and tests, and never got many back. Since I'm out of that school and going to middle school, I'm missing 7-8 quizzes AND tests that I was supposed to get back! In science, we didn't do much either. We read the chapter, then did a worksheet nobody really finished. Why? BECAUSE STUDENTS WOULD FOOL AROUND AND BE DUMB. Then, there's Social Studies class (Geography or History). We would learn political and ...more - kaitlynrad11

Although we may touch on it, Americans don't really learn about other cultures at all, even rarer in a positive way. This is the main spark to the racism, and the lack of respect that the States uphold due to lack of and false information.

It's not an Education System...It is an Indoctrination System. Socialists have taken control with the intent of brain-washing our children and parents are so pleased to be relieved of their responsibility to educate and train their children they allow it. Then onto "Higher Education" make that "Higher Indoctrination"...that puts them in debt for years. What a great System. Do you think it's a coincidence that the most successful...richest people in America didn't finish college?

6 Drugs

Drugs are taking over our country

Okay for starters I will agree drugs can be harmful to you such as Heroin, LSD, Coke, acid, etc.. But if you think for one minute the marijuana is like any of these drugs then you need to get your facts straight. There are so many people out there that bash marijuana because it's a drug, yet it's used in hospitals and it helps people. Yet 88,000 people die yearly from drinking alcohol, 480,000 die yearly smoking cigarettes. No one has ever overdosed on cannabis, and if there is any deaths from marijuana it's obvisoly won't be anywhere near those numbers. So they legalize cancer, and poison but are having difficulties legalizing medical marijuana?.. My theory on why they won't legalize it is simple. They have to control the population so they have to have alcohol and cancer to kill us off so we don't overpopulate, which I guess I can't blame them because if we overpopulated their would be less jobs and so on. So I get why that's all illegal because it's at your own risk, it's your ...more

I live in probably the ghetto part of it. Cali sucks when people take that stuff to advantage. - JoMama163

So drugs is something that nobody should have or drink. The reason why is because it makes you people do things that are not good. I am in middle school and a lot of boys and girls are smoking and doing drugs, mostly drugs. I wonder who created drawings because when people are drinking, drugs they be like drunk and wants to do things that are bad like killing, sexualy assault, raping, robing and much more. So if you people are reading this please do not drink drugs because it not good for you, you will not live much longer.

The world is slowly over!

7 Corruption

Corruption and a stupid political agenda will be the end of the US. Other countries and foreign investors basically own us with all the debt that we've compiled. So what does the government do to stop this from continuing? They cut a few billion dollars from the budget and than propose a healthcare reform costing over a trillion dollars. The only radical change we need right now is in our spending and materialism. In my opinion, this category is the most dangerous internal threat to America.

Our republic has become more and more an oligarchy. I blame a lot of it on Citizens United and the Supreme Court. Corporations are treated BETTER than real people, and have more influence, not just in politics but they can get away with crimes that would have citizens facing jail time.

Repentance or annihilation.
If America does not drain the swamp in the political and judicial systems people will rise up to bring down the aristocrats but America will not survive.

I think not that much compared to INDIA

8 Bullying

Some many people thing that bullying makes kids stronger. WRONG! Bullying makes kids skip school, on average over 10 percent of victims have skipped school specifically to avoid being bullied, over 160,000 students per year.

I am a thirteen year old girl who has been bullied her entire life and death is a thought that often finds its way to my head. My family and friends and my boyfriend is the only reason why I won't kill my self. The reason why I have just now decided to share this is because someone who is very important to me is going through what I have went through my entire life. The people who bully think that because they feel bad they have to make others feel bad but they don't and if they would be nice they would find someone who is willing to love them so they don't need to hurt others or theirselves. Because I will love them if they need me to or want me to.

You have still stayed strong after all your abuse. That is an ability most people don't have. I hope you don't kill yourself, because there is always someone who would be absolutely devastated if you did. Think about the people you love. They want you to live, so do it for them. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I'm a thirteen year old boy and in the sixth grad got got bullied a lot and when I would report it the school didn't do anything and now in seventh grade I was getting kicked and punched by two people right in front of a teacher and she didn't do anything. I told my dad about the repeated bullying and he was furious and talked to my teacher and they didn't do anything. Never trust the teachers to help stop with bullying.

Yeh other countries don't have bullies at all! - Murphypaw

9 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

Obama is being blamed for Bush's screw ups!

Actually, it's not Obama. We just have a very corrupt congress. A lot of people think that the President has all the power and can do whatever he wants. That's not true. The President actually can't do ANYTHING without getting approval from the Congress. Obama has wanted to do a ton for this country, but it's all been rejected because our Congress is currently filled with very corrupt greedy people who do not care about anyone's well being, especially the financially struggling. They are all rich political figures that ONLY care about making more money, and they won't approve any decision from the President unless it makes them more money.

Obama's policies passed THROUGH congress are screwing up America. We were already in trouble before he comes, and then he lies to America again and again.

He dropped more bombs on innocent people then all the previous presidents combined.

Muslim and Anti American. He started two wars and got Nobel prize for peace.
All democRATS hate America.

10 Terrorists

100 people have died so far in the United Kingdom in 2019 as a result of killings, mainly due to knife crime. The UK is three and a half times smaller than the States, so if we say 350 people. Due to ridiculous act of gun legalisation, over 3500 people have been killed. The world would be a MUCH better place without terrorists.

Terrorism is a huge problem not just in the world but within the US. And it isn't just people who identify themselves as a member of ISIS, it's also people who shoot up schools, airports, people of different races including white people. It is terrible problem that must be solved but continues because we let it. We identify a group of people as terrorists and people who minutely relate to that, are grouped with the insane and violent terrorists too. Then comes problems with discrimination, racism, sexism, etc. If we solve one of these problems, it may solve them ALL. If we are united, like those years fighting alongside each other against the British who practiced tyranny during the Revolution, if we devote our time and our hearts into restoring or making our home a better place, then join arms with your white, black, and brown brothers and sisters, and show what the American Dream actually meant to us! If I can believe in YOU, try to believe in yourself.

Though we do have a lot of problems to solve, terrorism is by far the worst! Many of our problems would be solved if we could just get rid of it.

They are bad people

The Contenders

11 The Media

"Reality" T.V. shows that focus on top models, dancing stars, fashion faux pas, "real" housewives, and swamp people are completely dumbing down our population. There is no focus on solving real problems of government overspending, personal dependency, radical islamists, and general decline of morality. Shame.

The media are constantly praising and focusing attention on non talented bimbo's who are famous for no reason. There is no morality about the media what so ever. If you had 2 women the 1 women was a very talented singer, song writer and played musical instruments but she respects her body so doesn't sell herself sexually by stripping and acting promiscuous all over the T.V. and the other woman has no talents or anything notable to be famous for, but she will do ANYTHING for money & fame IE) take her clothes off or do something disgusting & low to gain attention, fame and money; Which 1 will the media pick to shine the light on? They'll pick the woman with no morals & give her loads of media attention and turn her into a celebrity. Then they will publicize her sex life, boob jobs, ass jobs. The woman will date celebrity men and bed hop between them to keep her name in the papers. It is all just pointless really, because she doesn't deserve that kind of attention, where the woman who ...more

Sometimes the media can twist up facts so that people will believe the lies.

12 Anti-Patriotism

The biggest problem in this Country has been corruption, Wars fought for oil, "weapons of mass destruction never found", women and children in other countries killed and then America wonders why terrorists attack them? If bombs from Russia or any other country landed on US soil just once, it would be WWIII, but US does it and its just another day for "Patriots" to protect our "freedoms." that's just Bull. Us bullies everyone to get what they want and if they don't they get what they want they take it by force. Ask Hawaii how it lost its monarchy, even against the Presidents orders at that time. Ask the rightful heirs to USA the Native American Indians. You people think singing a song and saluting a flag makes you a patriot, but actually your just a mindless robot following whats told and never looking deeper to who is actually in the wrong and why they want to keep things they way they are while the corrupt live in LUXURY. You blame muslims, you blame presidents who all have short ...more

If you are living in America and have no respect for the people that have died to ensure that you even have the freedom in the first place to go on sites like this and say rude and disrespectful things, then please, I beg you, LEAVE! Why would you stay here with your toxic attitude? Some of us actually care about our country and know people who have died trying to make sure you have the freedom to be the little parasite to American society that you are. It is an absolute shame when people refuse to stand up and say the pledge! It's even worse when parents don't think it matters.

Maybe the reason people do not care anymore is because Donald Trump won president. As a teenager who is personally ASHAMED of our country, I no longer recite the pledge when asked. And I am not the parasite, I believe our so called "president" is the real parasite. Also, as I am learning about american history, it is a shame to see that all the hard work put into creating our country, is now being put to waste. Also, have you ever thought about the fact that the parents do care, but they are also just as ashamed in our country as their kids are? Well, since you wrote what you said, then I guess not. - aob

Problem with patriotism is this countries history is not being taught in schools anymore. If the current generation was back in the days of the revolutionary war, we would still be under brittish rule.

I would like to note that during the Maccarthy Trials, they were purging Communists ("Anti Patriots" and "Unamericans") which to me seems VERY unamerican! America is about free speech, free press, democracy, freedom of thought! I mean, Jesus Christ. I get downed on because I'm a Socialist Democrat. And then...THE REPUBLICANS! They called us liberals "unamerican" "anti patriots" "Ruining our country, etc...". That's garbage. They just help the rich and kill our middle class. Why don't we have universal heathcare and college? Take a guess. They say "They want to take our guns! " and "Fake News". The Gun Amendment was written in damn 1789! You actually needed a gun (and they are wanting to break the Press Amendment by saying they want to censor our news!. RANT OVER. Thank you

17 National Debt

If the USA can't repay China (China owns most of the USA's debt), then China could take land and infrastructure. That's how China obtained Sri Lanka's port & 15,000 acres of land after India couldn't repay a 300 million dollar loan. Currently, China owns 1.3 trillion dollars of US debt (4,333 times 300 million). If China made the US pay up, then they could potentially take 65 million acres or 1/35th of the USA's land from the USA. That's why eliminating national debt is a worthwhile goal.

I don't think india's land is captured due to loans.

Usa is in debt crisis.

23 Gay Rights

It's not the homosexuals themselves, it's the people who want it banned. Most of them say that it ruins families. But ironically, most of them are divorced. Also, this is a "free" country. Unfortunately, not only do they want gay marriage banned, but also immigration, Halloween, etc. Hell, even some people want atheism banned as well. Donald Trump will only make it worse. If only I had enough to move to Europe...

How is this a problem? Homophobes are even more of a problem. - shadomatrix

I think it is crazy that this is something that has to be talked about. It's crazy that some people are forced to not be themselves due to other peoples judgement. The USA, along with every other country, should allow gay people to have the same rights as any other person. There should be no differences in how a gay or straight person is treated. Ten percent of the population is gay, so just because the majority of people are straight does not mean you can team up on somebody that is different. We should learn to embrace the differences inside the human race instead of out when anything is different.

Gays have had a way of life as it was when the Pharoes walked the earth. I highly doubt they were gay cavemen seeing that the only way to survive is to procreation which is etched in stone man and woman go figure but who's to complain anything against the grain would be Dean wrong or in the Bible States abomination while people have. different interest they seem to miss use the term love as in its physical assets when Jesus meant spiritually. Here it is 2017 and we have the tools to do the research and yet no one has came to me about a gay God male or female so who's following the way of life? I rarely speak on issues like that of homosexuality as far as what any Bible says and any book it's wrong so how can you live a life under the Creator and continue to do the wrong things that happens everyday so do you think because people send today makes it okay because he died on the cross or does that mean it's representation this is the ability this is what it takes to do the right thing to ...more

24 Lobbying

Political Lobbying is by far the most underrated problem with America. The supreme court case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 2010 ruled that "corporations and unions can spend unlimited amounts in elections" which means that corporations in America can (and do) spend as much money as they want on politicians that will make them more money. That is an example of CORRUPTION! If corporations control politics and not the people that is called a corprotocracy and not a republic.That Why do you think so many upper class people spent money on Trump's campaign when his policies would destroy the planet we live on? Because it would make them more money. Why do you think Lockheed Arms dumps millions of dollars each year on wacko far-right people whom say we need to spend MORE money on defense?

27 Common Core

Common Core may have it's benefits but it is definitely NOT perfect. But, no system is. This one just has so many problems. Some will just say we don't know it yet I do and I read it. I do appreciate that states will teach at the same place which does help families moving in the middle of a school year. But all it is mainly are tests and tests. It is a factor of how smart are you at there tests and it puts no individuality within its entire thing. It focuses on one group which makes it harder for others which also creates a lack of Education, because we are not teacher for every student, but for a group. No teacher, even though some are great, can go up in front of 25 students and expect to shae everyone! This is a problem and it NEEDS TO CHANGE!

I like the concept of universal education, but the way they're doing it is just making kids dumb. They should spend more time actually teaching kids things instead of just testing 24/7. - shadomatrix

You guys saying common core is bad don't even know anything about it. It does not change anything you learn. It Tries to make things a little easier while still teaching it. Also before common core every state taught things at a different pace, so if a kid moved from say, California to New York, their new school may be learning something a grade level ahead of where they were at their old school. It does take a little ajusting to, but future generations are going to benefit.

Common core is retarded. It's geared to make it comfortable for kids who have a hard time understanding it, but all it does is make it more complicated.

29 School Bullies

If you are afraid of bullies, be inspired with them. Fear will only teach you nothing but, it will protect you from something. Use your fear to be inspired and learn something from it, so, you won't be bullied anymore. Be the bully, not the bullied. Be the hunter, not the hunted, be tough, not soft. Be wise, not stupid. Be creative, not submissive. Be the leader, not the follower.

School bullies need to leave people alone because someone I love is being bullied at school and I don't think it is right. I have been dealing with this since kindergarten and it still has not went away and they think they do this to make kids tougher but it dose not work I can not tell you how many hurtful things have been said to me. I have survived through a lot of thing. I have endured more that kids my age should have to deal with. For the record I am thirteen. I lost my father at the of five years old, my grandfather at the age of four, my best friend at the age of 13. I lost my cousin a few month ago. I go to school everyday and it is always the same people the same stupid comments and you want to know what I don't care any more it is different when some one says that to me but when it happens to someone I love then that is different. It makes me so mad to know that none of those people have the courage to do that to someone who wouldn't take it. I would like some of those ...more

35 "Me-First" Attitude

I absolutely agree, we have become an "I got mine" society. You can see this every time a tax increase is proposed for the wealthy. There is always a hue and cry from not only the rich, but the (usually Republican)politicians whose campaigns they finance. Do they feel they owe anything to the people of the nation that provided them with their great wealth? Some, like the Clintons and Kennedys, do but most are like Mitt Romney and just store their money in a foreign tax shelter.

That problem is present in all Capitalists countries. - DieGedankenSindFrei

alex wolff

We, as both a society and as individuals, have acquired a selfish mindset that we can come, go, and do as we please. no one cares about eachother. discourteous drivers, music provoking insensitivity and carelessness towards human beings, When you try to start conversation with people, they look around the room and usually respond with something purely about themselves or they avoid you because you're "wasting their time". come on, you guys know what I'm talking about. add to the list!

36 Police Brutality

Imagine a white policeman killing a black man in an illegal choke hold. In 2017 a black man named Eric Garner was killed due to police brutality. This police officer still works for the NYPD. Imagine the the races were switched.

See, check this out: A (white) cop kills a black man, the media/liberals/SJWs go crazy. But, if a black cop unfairly would to do it to a white man, it's suddenly all good. How? - RandomThings

Considering cops are shooting people simply for running away- I'd say the criminal justice system, and law enforcement needs to be reformed.

Why is this even a thing on this list

37 Ignorant People

Americans are all ignorant about the world around them

*turns away and ignores the "Ignorant People" text* - HelloImDeadInside

Ignore people


38 Cultural Marxism

It's a big problem and it's being pushed down people's throuts that don't agree with it!

no you

no you

39 Body Shaming

Body shaming is an actual problem in America, children in school especially teens go through rough times trying to love themselves and often are body shamed by others in passive and blunt ways. Girls especially experience self hate towards themselves when other girls call them fat, too skinny or judge their body shape. It is something many teenage girls go through which further leads to self-harm and suicide. It I believe is a new arising issue in this generation, even though there is so many singers and actors promoting self-love and everything people seem to still find something wrong with someone else's body.

Bruh, I feel that. It's definable a sensitive subject to talk about and with America's "obesity" rate.

Love yourself, yeah. But you've got to judge yourself too. Reflect on yourself and improve. That's the only way to succeed, to survive. - JustAnAccount

40 Feminism

If woman want equal rights, then it should be okay to hit girls

Good point I mean women got every right but that along time ago - Jabber

Feminism in america shouldn't be a thing anymore. It is true that women and men can do the same thing except biologically. - olivia3

This should be higher..

When a feminist says that men are pigs but you respond with "Aren't women equal to men? " -modern problems require modern solutions...

Common it killed Freddie Mercury - s46606

Put on a condom

There's a really simple solution. Put a bullet through the genitals/head of anyone with aids/hiv

43 Too Much Political Correctness

I was looking for this. The level of hypersensitivity these days is astounding. With freedom of speech, we can still say what we want, no matter who may be offended. I have known people who went great lengths to not offend anyone while speaking, and those people became monotonous and impractical to converse with because they are scared of saying something that somebody might not like. Have some backbone. - surgeonsanic

At Least it’s not as bad as the uk - Weirdest-thing

Everything on Earth will certainly be offensive to some people. If political correctness want the US without offense at all, ban everything, including itself, which is offensive.

See: Social justice warriors, radical feminists, PETA, people that think you're racist for disagreeing with a person of color, etc. - RiverClanRocks

44 Republicans

Republicans are for the upper class, the rednecks, the ones stuck in the past.

It's not necessarily the republicans that are the problem -it's just the idiots. Don't blame the republicans for believing what they want to believe, blame the individual people in this country who make bad choices, pass bad laws, etc. As neither a Democrat or Republican, I can say that both parties (and parties not mentioned) have played some part in why America is the way that it is.

I think it is not the republicans, it is the people in the country who are lame and can't do things for themselves! This one is highly offensive to me and probably other people who are republicans as well!

The party of torture, war crimes, endless war, ecocide, environmental deterioration, mindless nationalism, christian sharia law, history denial, science denial, corporate rule, neo-feudialism, job outsourcing, starving wages, recessions, police brutality, implicit racism, institutional homophobia, mass deportations, conspiracy theories, general meanness and disgust for anything new.

45 People That Can't Get Their Priorities Straight

I wish Justin Bieber, narcissism, and neo-Nazis were our biggest problems.

46 Conservatives

Not conservatives in general, just the way that a lot of things in the Republican party are radical conservative, backwards and quite frankly dangerously elitist. Quite ironic for a party supporting the billionaire who claims he is fighting for the small folks...

Shouldn't the Liberals, and SJWs who are twisting kids minds, into thinking being trans is the best thing ever a more concerning issue? Their riots? Conservatives have it right, we aren't the problem. - RandomThings

I get you about the Liberals, but how in the world are Conservatives "having it right" and are not a problem? - Jasmine21064

Democrats are conservative.
Republicans are inconceivably over-the-top conservative. - owlro188

A huge problem - bryton

47 Alt-Rights & SJWs

Especially the alt-right - shadomatrix

48 Obsession with Guns

Your correct. However, in the United States we have the right to bare arms. In other words, we have the right to protect ourselves. I definitely agree that something needs to be done, however, instead of leaving it for someone else to deal with we are a team and we all need to do our part to stop this crisis.

And Trump thinks that video games are the problem within our society hahaaha

MORE MASS SHOOTINGS IN THE U.S.TODAY! When will Americans learn to BAN GUNS!

The second amendment is there so we may rise up against a corrupt government also for self-defense - Jabber

49 Unemployment

Good thing trump is president more jobs = less debt - Jabber

"help life sucks and I have no money what do I do" - HelloImDeadInside

Yes there is some discrimination, but honestly no one needs to hold your hand and just give you a job. You need to get off your butt and start looking.

50 Murder

Yeah no more killing babies just because you don't want it - Jabber

You mean the human embryonic and fatal development does not have...
2-cell stage, 4-cell stage, 8-cell stage, 16-cell stage then blastocyst and then fetus at 4 weeks.

People should not be murdered. If you have a problem with someone, then you ignore them and push them out of your mind. Don't kill them! Also don't kill people because you don't like their race, or you don't like who they are married to, just let it all go from your mind, because in the long run, they are probably nicer than you.

More than 30 people are murdered in the U.S. everyday which leads up to thousands each year.
