USA sucks

    I was always right that the USA sucks and I keep saying it for a year or two now. Since I've gotten to learn more about the world, it seems that Canada and other countries paid (in terms of healthcare) better than the USA does.

    2 to 4 thousand dollars for the dentist and get your teeth fixed.
    3+ thousand dollars for surgery on any body part.
    10+ thousand dollars to give birth to a baby boy or girl.
    20 or 30 thousand dollars to earn a piece of paper from college or university while the American education is expensive as hell, and then put yourself into debt for the rest of your life.
    The housing and vehicle costs went high.
    Terrible labor markets.
    Higher rate of cases and deaths in Covid19 (nearly 1 million people died from Covid in the USA alone).
    Hollywood loves treating people like sheep

    Hey, welcome to America, and that is what I call FREEDUMB!

    You can cherry pick the data to make it look like USA sucks. Or you can cherry pick the data to make it look like USA is the best thing ever. Sometimes it depends on what you value. When you talk about healthcare, for instance, it's true we have a problem with ACCESS to healthcare for the lower income people. Our QUALITY of healthcare is typically the very best, or among the best in the world, depending on what you need done, with a few exceptions. So, that's a problem if you're cash poor, no problem at all if you have health insurance.

    Speaking of which, health care COSTS in the US are driven up by insurance companies. It's a long, complicated story, but my wife works in healthcare and she's explained it in detail; it's not about greedy hospitals, greedy doctors, or greedy pharmaceutical companies (usually). It's the greedy insurance industry, which is actually a monopoly right now, and you're not going to see it addressed in congress because the insurance industry has paid off the senators. You won't see it talked about in the news because they bought off the networks. As long as they can keep the Left and the Right pointing fingers at hospitals and each other, they'll keep riding their gravy train to the literal moon and back.

    Practically speaking though, if you think the US sucks, go live someplace that doesn't suck. I'm not saying that like, "u git outta mah cuntry u damn cucktard hippie NPC." Seriously. If you're not living your best life here, then find some place you can make that happen, for your sake.

    The american system has become a cruel joke on the poor and the middle class but soon the accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up to their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'save us!' and we'll look down and whisper "no".

    In response to the elementary school shooting in Uvalde, the USA has a ridiculous amount of mass shootings and it never ends. That is another reason why America sucks.

    I agree the number of mass shootings in America is insane. It's hard for me to comprehend America's obsession with guns. It isn't just the killing but how it psychologically affects survivors. The podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking interviewed this woman who survived the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in 2017 and she talked about how she's been scared to be in public spaces since surviving the shooting. Listening to the podcast made me think it's better to be killed in a shooting than survive it.

    I'm from an ex-empire. No empire becomes one because of fairness, equality and tolerance. It's simply a matter of power and capability, hence China is on the up again.
    At the moment I (unfortunately) think that America and the whole West is at risk because we're more interested in being nice than simply winning.
    Maybe there is a way of being hard but fair, but it would mean offending people and dealing with accusation.
