I'm done with American politics, or lack of. Are any other Americans on WP frustrated?

I am too. That's why I tell everybody I hate both Republicans and Democrats. This country is becoming so polarized and that's not a good thing. :(

Frustrated enough to retire to another country, yes.

I wish I could. :(

But I am as immobile as a peach tree. All I can do is adapt to my environment.

Was it ever up hill?

I kinda hate this country.
I feel like no one can see outside of what very directly affects them, like their lives are living in a mirror. Politics may as well be football. People rarely think about what is right or wrong and just jump on a team.

If I get the chance I will move to another country. Probably not soon, but I certainly want to. No point of living in this egotistical crud hole.

I have said from the very beginning that we are a country of narcissists (iow ethnocentric). Of course not all Americans are bad people, but there is no denying the inflated ego and overexaggerated sense of greatness of our culture as a whole.

You're absolutely right, we were never "great" to begin with. I mean where dah fuq do Americans get that idea? From their Hollywood movies? :P

Being the world's preeminent military and economic power tends to give you the idea that you are great. Decide for yourself whether this should be the case, but it's the primary basis for our nation's collective superiority complex.

When 1 million American troops were stationed or passed through Australia during WWII there was a famous news article that captured the spirit of the times

methinks the white race is polarized not as liberal vs conservative, but as cognitively superior whites vs laymen whites.. a lot. that might explain the detoquesville thing but im not sure. all white empires, they build up, expand, almost reaching the zenith, then suddenly depresses, and enter permanent plateaux. the paradox of the white race .
