A Nationwide Poll
    #684575 - 06/17/02 07:08 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I'm going to ask for the honest and no BS opinions to a very simple yet BROAD question. This is for EVERYONE all over the world to answer. We are looking forward to getting responses here, in the online community, from those not only in the US but also as a resource for those living outside the US. If you wish to respond here, that is fine, you may PM me with your response as well.
Thank you and please answer this simple question if you will.
Without quoting anyone, tell me in your own words:


What is WRONG with/in America today?



thanks,
~K~

People don't dicipline their kids. This leads to liberals and their liberal thinking. Liberals lead to most of the problems in our society.

Liberal/leftist politics and views.
The destruction of morality.
The attempted destruction of God(s)/religion through science.
Too many laws for useless things.
Too many kiss a tree environmentalists.
Too many liberal tax & spend big government supporters.
Too many babied people that have never been through true hard times.

1) The belief that doing wrong is acceptable so long as you can convince enough people that you're "least wrong", coupled with a general contempt and mistrust of anyone who disagrees even mildly...the foundation of all fundamentalist/extremist thinking.

2) The insistence that "survival of the fittest" is an unavoidable factor in all human affairs and that it excuses virtually anything.

3) Too involved in world problems

1) Too much power is given to the Government without being held accountable.

2) Blatant exploitation of the environment and natural resources.

3) Corruption of government officials by Big Business

4) The labelling of left / right wing

5) People taking what they are told by the media / government at face value without question.

6) Lack of family values

7) Organized religion

8) 1% of the richest people from 1% of the richest countries, controlling 99.9% of the worlds financial decisions behind closed doors.

Organized religion is one of my biggest pet peeves...would someone explain to me why god needs 10% of my paycheck? Or why I need to confess my sins to a priest? Or why one religion is better than another bacause the gods have a different name?

I agree, the worst thing that has ever happened to christianity is organized religion. I have recently denounced my Catholisism and became non-denomination...i'm just a christian, that's all

I can't in good conscience even call myself christian...I believe there was a Christ, but also a Buddha, a Mohammed...all great spirits from the same source. If you study their teachings you'll find they are all basically the same.

Rail Gun, if you only knew how many times I heard that. I really disagree with the philosophy also. It's like saying you too good to help people, and giving the responsibility to another, or noone...

1. Social Security
2. Grant Money/Non Profits/Church Tax ID
3. Republican and Democratic Corruption
4. Rock is'nt running for Green Party elect Governor for Hawaii
5. Republican Party taking over Jesse Ventura's party, noone knows! That's why he won't run again.
6. Corporate Business

In reply to:

Why can't you and others of a like mind grasp this simple point...

If I want to help someone that should be my choice, just as it should be my choice not to help anyone. I work hard for the money I have earned. For the government to come along with scheme after scheme, most thought of by liberals, to take my money from me to give to others, is just plain wrong. Frankly, I couldn't care less if some mom who has had a half dozen kids when she couldn't afford one on her own, lives or dies. I couldn't care less if some ass decided he needed beer and cigs more than health insurance then gets sick and croaks.

I do give money. I give where I choose and help those I choose. It's that the goverment takes my money from me that I have a problem with.

That and people like you who think I should gladly give up an ever increasing chunk of my cash to support scum who don't deserve it.

I'm just pointing out how others act, they do have the right to not help in america, and this right is often exercised.

Liberals have never suggested, or implemented any means to take your money, if you are reffering to liberals such as the reform party, libertarian party, or green party. The Reform party, as the only 3'rd party to make into office, never got it's agenda approved by the senate, and house, because of a 2 party opposition to reform. You have never seen what an independant or "liberal" party can achieve. So , you cannot judge, or prejudge, if you wish to seem wise.

My speelling is not your concern, and shroomery doe'snt have spell check, and why would I waste my time to use that , even if they did have that? You now want to converse with some of my international friends? You can, you can explain to them that my charity is wasteful towards them if you want. You can even call them scum, you can tell them they don't deserve it. If that's what makes you feel good, living in a fantasy world, then we can experiment. If you even pm me, I can direct you to a private message board, of international people, run by myself, and I may be able to arrange a meeting, between you and the best of english speakers..
