To make a not so long story shorter IMHO ingeneral the people that govern the United Staes have done a pretty crappy job over the past 50 years. The qualityof education has certainly fallen. The infrastructure is in definite need of repair and upgrade. Health care is expensive annd confusing. Only about 50% participate in elections, but it seems that 90% complain, apathy run rampant. Technologically there have been many advances, but much of it is nit affordable to many. Although most peoiple now have healthcare, high deductibles and premiums impose economi pain on many. Sure, there are many things “good” about the States, but a lot needs to be done to make thing better for the average Joe.
