Given the constitutional framework and the 2 party system and with it all the blessings of capitalism ;why is this country on a downward spiral that doesn't seem to be improving.

why the steady failures? why the desperate situation in a land of unlimited opportunities and great exceptionalism found everywhere among its diverse population?

why the stock market swindles and jobs going overseas by the millions ,the loss of american farmland the dire position of the small farmer and the insecurity that every american worker is facing, ;what is causing it all?

why is it that our public servants and our politicians as well as our independent news media take special care never to criticize the jewish american people?
a special people that enjoy great preeminence in the american culture and in business life.
could this furnish the key to the solution of the whole riddle?

No but you have called african americans and mexicans violent rapists, denounced indians, said blacks are inferior, and you even claimed the jews are responsible for keeping us down...

So youve never been racist towards me, but youre still a racist a**hole

We're recovering from a deep recession.

Most people think we're on an upward trend (though currently I doubt the economy) but we differ on why.

Capitalism has lead many countries out of hunger. Even if you disagree with that statement, its impossible to say we have been going down in recent history (within 100 years.) We are creating many new innovations. Life is easier, and 20 years ago DDO would not have existed.

The United States has a mixed economy with a highly regulated financial market and banking system. Things are actually getting better in every category. ver the past two decades, what have the U.S. trends been for the following important measures of social health: high school dropout rates, college enrollment, juvenile crime, drunken driving, traffic deaths, infant mortality, life expectancy, per capita gasoline consumption, workplace injuries, air pollution, divorce, male-female wage equality, charitable giving, voter turnout, per capita GDP and teen pregnancy?
The answer for all of them is the same: The trend is positive. Almost all those varied metrics of social wellness have improved by more than 20% over the past two decades. And that's not counting the myriad small wonders of modern medicine that have improved our quality of life as well as our longevity: the anti-depressants and insulin pumps and quadruple bypasses.

why the steady failures? why the desperate situation in a land of unlimited opportunities and great exceptionalism found everywhere among its diverse population?

Did you miss your Prozac shipment this month?

why the stock market swindles and jobs going overseas by the millions ,the loss of american farmland the dire position of the small farmer and the insecurity that every american worker is facing, ;what is causing it all?

Many "stock market swindles" are nothing of the sort. Insider trading should not be a crime. Jobs are going overseas due to a little thing called comparative advantage. Farmland depletion is caused by suburban sprawl, the government's cartelization of agribusiness, and monoculture.

why is it that our public servants and our politicians as well as our independent news media take special care never to criticize the jewish american people?

Probably because that's incompetent and racist.

a special people that enjoy great preeminence in the american culture and in business life.
could this furnish the key to the solution of the whole riddle?

Perhaps instead of complaining like a f*cking preteen, you could get off your a$$ and make a name and a paycheck for yourself?
