Why do so many Americans hate America? And if they hate it so much why don't they just leave?


One thing that really bothers me is the way some Americans seem to hate everything about America. I'd just like to ask them: "If you hate everything about the country you live in then why are you living in it?" Any insights?

    We come from a huge landmass with many opinions. I am thankful we can express them. Not hate so much as we can make a change.

    Only free speech is slowly being outlawed. HR 347, for instance, makes it a felony at the discretion of some government officials. NDAA allows the government to throw you in jail for no reason. And Obama makes war without Congress. Treason!

    Well said, but the Corporate Party media has become the new Gestapo propaganda machine. Obama is the new emperor. Syria the latest Sudetenland. Lies and more lies. Obama is a veritable silver-tongued devil and I voted for him in 2008. Betrayal

    I'm afraid that America and its Constitution are being strangled as we speak (or write). Look at the work of Ben Swann, Judge Napolitano and other patriots. You have to stop looking at Corporate Party news to find truth.

    No, they "hate" America because they are frustrated and feel that their problems are unique to themselves and are waiting for someone to "fix" it for them instead of being proactive.

    That's funny! The irony in "biting the hand that feeds"! Given that science and technology, the left, the doers, are responsible for America's progress, it's really you who should be careful with "biting the hand that feeds you". Wow, the delusion!

    Science gave us those devices, not Capitalism. Capitalism is a motivation, albeit, not a very good one. Also, hypocritical? The right-wing loves to denounce science for findings that don't fit it's narrative while parading stuff that does.

    You seem a little bias to the left. Conservatives are ignorant but Liberals are educated freethinkers? That's hilarious.

    I'm not condemning either side, but your disposition only deepens the divide & conquer whirlpool we're all lost in.

    I do so agree!! It's not the people, necessarily, it is the system of government. And it is way more complicated than just blaming the president. I am all for the health care act. It has been great for my family.

    Instead of focusing on your hardships think if the blessings you enjoy in the most free country on the planet. The key to finding happiness in this country is to find something you are passionate about and pursue that as a career.

    Disagree. I do not believe that America is the "greatest nation on earth." There are too many false flags and such. I doubt if I will still be living when we get straightened out, and I do believe we will. Just not soon.

    Give me a break. America has become corporate-fascist and a police state. It's more than simple frustration. This affects more than those who do not know where to turn.

    You know, not everyone in America gives a sh*t about Palestine and Israel. Not saying it isn't important, it just feels so remote. Personally, I think the Palestinians should have that land and Israel is a bully.

    You are fooling yourself if you believe we are "free." I respect your opinion, just disagree with aspects. There are many many places here that are just as bad as 3rd world countries. If I had more room, I'd give more detail.

    If you have lived elsewhere in the world, it will become obvious that, though materially Americans have a lot to be thankful for, it comes at the expense of a decent and civil culture. America's mainstream is a bitter charade that lacks good will.
