Complaint Review: United States of America - Washington DC

Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
The US government has cheated us all. Law and policy is formulated by the influence of interest groups or the consequences of their actions or those of other large entities. There is an inherent conflict of interest because what is in the best interests of Americans and what is in the best interests of the lobbyists, interest groups and corporate America are not the same. With only one government to represent both sides (regardless of the "party" in power) there IS a serious conflict and it's the people that always pay too dear a price.

The US is no longer a democracy and the US can no longer be characterized as a free market economy. It's a good thing so few Americans travel abroad or know very much about what goes on outside the US (except for the exaggerations they see and hear on their favorite nightly news programs) otherwise they would see this all too clearly.

We are all aggreived because the US government as a system (from a non-summative perspective) has and continues to regularly misrepresent and defraud its citizens. How can the problem be solved? Americans need to be unified to do that. What is ostensibly labelled a "two party system" is not. When one pulls the blinders off they can see that voting for either party makes no real difference. The choice is an illusion. As long as there is a two party system as it currently exists in the US then the citizens of the US will merely be divided and the nonsense that exists will continue to do so and the same deceit that has been foisted on Americans will continue. The same interest and lobby groups are playing both sides against the middle and it's the American people that are caught in the middle.

That's not right...

Terrance, that's not right. One of the things that separates your country from many other places in the world is that each citizen has the right to speak out. You may not agree with what the original poster said (hell, I can't even understand half of it), but he has the right to say it. I'm pretty fed up with people saying, "Well, if you don't like it here, go somewhere else!" as if pointing up flaws in an effort to make things better is somehow wrong. Believe it or not, there *are* other places to live that are just as free and open as the U.S. Yes, this is a good place to live, but it's got its share of problems. How long are you people going to sit on your laurels as "the world's superpower!" or "the best country on Earth!"? The longer you hide behind the "If you don't like it here, go somewhere else" defence, the worse the problems in the U.S. will get, and then what defence will you use?

Another case of paranoid ramblings from a malcontent... If you believe what you write, give us some examples of what you're alleging. Also, please tell me what really goes on at area 51. Hey, if you don't like America, go to Mexico, or anywhere else for that matter.
