So many WP members here from all around the world...

I'm sure we all have something we hate about our own countries.

Being an American, I think what I hate the most about my country is the fact that Americans have always thought of themselves as being so morally surperior to everyone else when it comes to every single war they were ever involved in.

But ask yourselves: who was the first and only country (so far) to drop an atomic bomb on civilians? When the world eventually gets destroyed by nuclear war Americans SHOULD get all the blame for introducing these kinds of weapons to the world!

In the long run America, you f****d the entire world over! :roll:

I hate the growing chasm growing between the rich and poor. This is supposed to be the land of opportunity, for crimony's sake!
I hate how people embrace ignorance, where no one knows their history, reads anything, or pays attention to politics or current events.

I could forgive all that, but I can't forgive the nuclear bomb thing.

As an American the belief that anybody can do anything if they just try hard enough. The extreme extroversion national culture.

If you define :evil: my country :evil: as the one I live in, Americans talk too much and too loud. And they are lazy.

But I don't own a :evil: country :twisted:

And plenty of precious lil "people" act like that and they are not Americans so what the flying f**k ever

The small market, if things go bad enough I'll probably move to a bigger place where there's a bigger choice of food and games.

In the US, it seems that people are being either excessively liberal or excessively conservative, like they believe that they should do things by-the-book and think in terms of black-and-white. At least, this has been going on here, but I don't know if this also happens in other countries.

And also, Trump. -_-

Communistic ways being pushed through the education system.

I think Americans do see everything as black and white.

Like if they flipped a coin, it's either "heads" or "tails".

But what if that coin lands on its edge? What would they do then?

Obviously they'd freak out and start threatening another civil war. :lol: :twisted:
