My 10 reasons to leave America

Postby Cyrus » April 28th, 2015, 6:27 pm

This has been going viral lately on my little blog. I've been getting a lot of hate mail because of it, but I think the folks on HA could relate better than anyone. Below is the link, but i'll summarize the ten problems also:

http://cyruskirkpatrick.com/10-reasons-to-leave-america/

10 - The Food is Garbage
9 - The Infrastructure is Falling Apart
8 - The Architecture is Hideously Boring
7 - Thug Culture is a Thing
6 - Americans Are Anti-Social, Lonely and Depressed
5 - The Family Unit is Broken
4 - Americans, Blined by Dumb Patriotism, Won't Face Their Problems
3 - Shallow Attitudes Rule the Day
2 - The U.S. is Becoming a Police State
1 - Americans Are Slaves to Debt

How I see it: Most of America's problems stem from blind "winner takes all" business mentalities that, while they helped turn the U.S. into an economic powerhouse, ultimately destroyed the social fabric of the country.

Many of these cultural problems I do not find living in Europe.

#4 is really the one that the others spawn from. And that's the same with any country. If the culture isn't sound, people will ignore problems and that let's things get worse.

Solid list. Do you find any except number five in Europe?

One of the best articles linked from this site that I have read. Spot on, especially from numbers 5 down to 1. Of course, America is a big place, different regions suffer from this more than others, but on the whole, this is quite refreshing. I found both China and Japan to be more community oriented than the US, although some of the larger cities in China are starting to adopt that same "winner take all" mentality. I look forward to more from this author.

Especially when they are to dumb to figure out the founding documents are America, the first 12 and that it went bankrupt in 1933 and the British Empire has been running it since then.

The thing people need to understand is when you say winner take all mentality what are you referring too ? The power elite of the world went through pain stakenly efforts to program you to believe their money system is the only viable option to run a society and for morons it is!

All this wealth transfer to the top has been made possible by not tying the economic system to something real that is regulated by the masses that rewards the actual producers. This is what was intended by the founders of the country America I believe.

You see communism socialism has been marketed by the people who practice this fraudulent financial system as being a benefit for the masses when in reality it's about a small minority owning and controlling it all., hence " Winner Take All ".
