The USA used to be a better democracy than it is now. Democracy requires some semblence of self discipline and self reliance. This phylosophy has seriously gone away in the past few years. The USA is turning into a much more socialistic society relying on others to fill their basic needs. Basically it is turning into a society that punishes success and allows people who are less than motivated to feel they are entitled to success they simply did not earn. Americans are becoming a society of lazy bags of shit who want their "fair share" when they have done little or nothing for it. Just fucking gimme.
