10 Things Most Americans Don’t Know About America


Imagine you have a brother and he’s an alcoholic. He has his moments, but you keep your distance from him. You don’t mind him for the occasional family gathering or holiday. You still love him. But you don’t want to be around him.

This is how I lovingly describe my current relationship with the United States. The United States is my alcoholic brother. And although I will always love him, I don’t want to be near him at the moment.

I know that’s harsh, but I really feel my home country is not in a good place these days. That’s not a socio-economic statement (although that’s on the decline as well), but rather a cultural one...

America is a great place to start a business, make money, and generally just be isolated and hide out.

But for dating and making genuine friends, GOOD LUCK!

Great article but also the very sad truth of America. Article should be a wake up call to americans to stop being such ignorants.
