Things Wrong With The United States

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is 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 Romney.

Wow don't you think your over exaggerating

Perhaps the anger should be directed at the do nothing Congress. We pay them a lot to be against everything.

Blame the Republicans that make up the majority of Congress who won't let Barack Obama undo the damage to America. Also, at least Barack Obama is making the right choices with healthcare (although it could be improved upon), good foreign relations, good education, and improving our country a lot from the damage George W. Bush started in the first place. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Wasn't his fault. The Republicans wouldn't push anything he did through because they're racists. - Metalhead1997

23 They still think Germans are Nazis, although there are more Nazis in the US than in Germany

That's so true!
I am from Germany and I don't know how often this dirty Americans have me considered as a Nazi, shame on you!

I am German myself and when I went to America the guy in the airport who looked in my passport said "don't go killing no Jews now" I was so upset! I had another incident when I arrived in New York where two men heard me with a German accent and proceeded to Nazi salute me!
The American attitude towards German people is so utterly wrong and Racist! I had nothing to do with the war! The people in the United Kingdom are so much more friendly it has never happens to me once there!

People don't understand that the war was over 70 years ago. It is in the past. Not all or almost any Germans are Nazis! And me saying this, I'm not even German! I just believe this is very wrong.

In Germany, it's actually illegal to be a Nazi nowadays. - Metalhead1997

24 Complaining

Complaining that we work too much? Don't even get me started. Half of us are LAZY. I guarantee you every other country in the world works 10 times harder than we do. - Metalhead1997

Adults in the United States whine more than children. They are too lazy to come up with solutions to their problems

25 They try to police the world

Take care of our self and see how quick the world changes

The US is the cause of most thing wrong with the world

They claim they are better than every body else. I may be American my self but...

Who made us the policeman of the world?! NO ONE! - Metalhead1997

27 Death Penalty

I trust government to make certain the law is equitable and applied equally to all. We all know this not the case. A black man down south may receive a harsher punishment under the law than a white boy in California for committing the same crime. As far as the death penalty is concerned, it should be applied as a consequence for certain crimes -- murder, treason. I just wish there were a national system in place to make certain the correct punishment fits the crime and is applied equally across all 50 states. This will probably never happen, but it should.

Life in prison is the perfect punishment, but whether someone should live or die is God's decision.

I have mixed reactions on the death penalty. I'm not sure if the lives of criminals should be decided by law officials. Plus, a fraction of those on death row are actually innocent, but were framed. However, it ensures political control and gets rid of the murderers, spies, terrorists, and other people who are ripping society apart. Sometimes life in prison isn't good enough. - ethanmeinster

How is this bad? There's still 30 countries that practice it. - Metalhead1997

28 People are Easily Brainwashed by Politicians

Um, other countries have done this. North Korea, Nazi Germany, etc. - Metalhead1997

That goes for all trumptards and libertards equally.but, sadly...

29 George Bush Was Elected President

He sucked, enough said

How did he ever get anywhere near politics. When I look at george bush I think of an inbreed half retarded monkey running a country into the ground. - Bturlik

In fact both George Bushes... Neither of them was any good and they were the petrie dish for the crazy tea party people Yikes.

He was arguably the worst president we ever had, but Trump is about to take that spot. - Metalhead1997

30 The Ku Klux Klan

They are very racist people and it would be bad if they joined the Nazis. - Skullkid755

OK yeah but it's bad but that's like saying Germany's bad because Nazis LIKE BOTH are dead now

31 Increasing Irreligion

It's perfectly fine to be either religious or non-religious! We have our own beliefs and I stay away from religion arguments for a valid reason. Though I am a Christian, I follow the Bible very loosely. There's also different levels to how religious people are, like I'm religious, but not bound very deeply to Christianity. Some people aren't religious at all and that's perfectly fine, too. Everyone believes different things, and forcing religion on everyone is sort of like forcing everyone in the country to marry to the opposite gender beliefs and feelings in religion and sexual orientation are NOT choices people suddenly make. What we DO need is for people to stop bashing other religions because they're "incorrect". - Turkeyasylum

Why is this a bad thing? Everyone should have the freedom to choose their own belief. There are both religious people and non-religious people promoting their belief/disbelief aggressively. There are both religious and non-religious people that commit terrible crimes such as murder. Don't be the type of person that hates someone else for their belief/disbelief, let's all dance in sunshine and rainbows!

Honestly, I don't follow much of a religion, but I'm apart of the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (Rainbow Girls) and we basically worship the Bible. And apparently, we according to some ritual we perform, we should "Follow some sort of religion". I just don't care about religion, even when I go to church, I get bored - kaitlynrad11

What idiot put this on the list? Religious freedom is in our Constitution!

32 Obamacare and Other Things That Rob the Middle Class

Every other country in the world has national health care. Obamacare certainly isn't everything Obama wanted, but was the most he could get from a hostile congress. It's not enough to say you hate Obamacare. Come up with something better, or shut up.

Obama is a dick

I HATE HATE OBAMA SO BAD!

First off I hate Obama, second I also hate Obama-care

33 They Are the Most Popular In Everything But They Contribute Lame Ideas, Music, Etc

So many stupid cartoons, for example, are on American cartoon channels

Yeah, because we want money nowadays. - Metalhead1997

34 Abortion

Basic SCIENCE tells us that from the first moment of fertilization, a human zygote (and later, fetus) is alive, human, and a unique human being separate from his or her mother. (From the first moment of fertilization, the zygote meets all 8 criteria** for scientifically qualifying as a human being. The DNA in every cell of a zygote, fetus, infant, and baby (those names are just names for stages of development, like toddler and teenager) is human DNA, and from the first moment of fertilization, the genetic code of the new human is different from that of his/her mother, and every other person on the planet.)

So, yeah, the fact that we allow thousands of these human beings to be killed every day in our nation bothers me a lot, because I hate genocide. 54 million people have been legally killed by abortion in the U.S. 6 million were killed in the Jewish Holocaust. I want that to end. I'm American and I believe that every person, born and unborn, has the right to life, liberty, and ...more

People need to stop acting like rape is a yes or no question, and actually educate themselves on the topic. If you're pro-life or whatever, you better be damn sure you know all of the facts because people are beginning to lose the respect for another person's choices.

Put it this way. If you were pregnant and didn't want the baby, you wouldn't get an abortion (obviously), so you put the baby up for adoption. But would you let an 18 or 20 year old girl adopt your baby? Would you say that she isn't responsible enough to have a child? Because if that's the situation then she should have full right to get an abortion.

Well, like most issues, abortion is all about Fundamentalist Christians tying to influence government legislators to make laws telling folks how to live their lives. If those legislators don't do what the Fundamentalists want, the Fundamentalists don't fund their election campaigns. How is the issue of abortion that much different than the issue of gun control. Sure both issues involve life and death, it's just one involves life and death before birth and the other involves life and death after birth.

35 Poverty

Yes most crimes are committed for financial gain and not for just the thrill of crime- James picuri

36 Cussing

Lol. I'm sure there are countries that cuss more. But seriously, they're just words!

Yes, there is cussing but there's cussing everywhere. I never started cussing in the U. S, only when I moved out and to a new country where everyone else was doing it. But yes, there's cussing everywhere, America, Britain, Europe, practically everywhere.

Really? GIVE ME A BREAK. Europe swears a lot more than we do. - Metalhead1997

I can say whatever the hell I want to. - MKBeast

38 People Being Negative About the United States

I've read this whole list and I have one thing to say you guys listed 86 things wrong with America but it seems like you have given up on America. But that's not what America is about. We know our problems and we don't list and complain about it we try to fix it and make it better. I'll admits that around half of these are accurate but so only apply to the stereotypical American. I'm 12 and I and many others could said I don't think any particular race are nazis, I have won 10 respect awards over 6 years, that hip hop is more popular than rock in America because we are different. For instance, we do not use to same measuring system we call football soccer and vice versa. So please what makes my country worse is when people like you complain about whats a matter with it I suggest we try to make America I better place

First off I'm the same person who's eleven (I know I'm going to get in trouble for this but my name is Casey) and I am really trying people, I really am. People say I can't do anything because I'm too young (hurtful)! But I'm trying to stay as positive as I can. I know most people hate or don't like America but people in the past have worked hard to bring this Country together, so why don't we help out?! And I don't care if you think I'm doing it over I am who I am, and I will go to the military and fight for our freedom "cause I'm that good

Yes I don't like America too much, but stop and think, Americans are free. And the only thing making this Country worse is Obama. And I am only 11 but I want to change the way this Country is and I want to be as positive as I can (even though I'm always angry) for America.

The only good item on this list, but it applies more to non-Americans. - NuMetalManiak
