What makes America #1?

By Christopher R Rice
Updated 07/13/2015

All of my life and probably all of your life, I've heard and I'm sure that you've heard that America is #1, turns out though, that is a lie.

But the U.S. is the greatest country in the world, right? Wrong again.

Does America have the best doctors, hospitals or health care on the planet?

Don't people flock here to get treated? No and No.

How about the highest standard of living?

Again no.

America is the champion of freedom and civil rights, aren't we? Actually, America only has about 5% of the world's population and yet locks up over 25% of the world's population. 

Anyone remember when politicians use to promise us energy independence? In 2015 America became the world's largest oil producer and yet Americans are paying 3 to 5 dollars a gallon and home heating cost are up as well.

We're told that 4 dollars a gallon is necessary to make fracking profitable. And that multi billion dollar companies must be given public lands, our national resources to make new drilling profitable. On top of that we're told that we must also give profitable oil companies tax cuts and million dollar tax rebates.
I don't buy it!


First, we are expected to believe that the Navy, the Coast Guard, the Marines,  Air force, Border Patrol, DEA, DHS, FBI, Highway Patrol, State police, local police, undercover police and on and on can not stop the flow of drugs into this country or even into a maximum security prison?

Second, you are expected to believe that the only way to handle drugs is through prohibition or legalization with treatment or incarceration.

I don't buy it!


Put your money in a bank. That's the safest place, right? Sure, it is safer than stuffing it under your mattress. Or is it? "Savings accounts are the equivalent of modern-day mattress stuffing," says Elle Kaplan, CEO of Lexion Capital Management, a New York City-based asset management firm. "Savings accounts cause you to lose money over time because their low interest rates do not keep pace with inflation."

Cardone says this myth stems from a time when our grandparents or parents were able to put money in a bank account and get a hefty return. This is no longer true.

"Your parents would earn more in one month than you could earn the entire year (in interest)," he says. It's immoral, America can't even run an honest banking system.

I don't buy it!!


Americans have 4 months of their pay taken in taxes every year and that's been true under Republican or Democrat administrations.

Every year you lose 4 months of your pay to sales taxes, phone taxes, gas taxes, liquor, property, federal, and state taxes. Yet you still have the worst public schools of any industrialized nation.

If the most profitable multinational corporations on the planet weren't being given tax cuts and tax rebate checks from the federal government and had to pay their fair share, we would not have deficits. We would have the money for modern roads, modern schools and hospitals and you could keep some of your hard earned money in your pockets instead of having to fork it over to Uncle Sam.

Their solution... raise taxes and cut Social security to give profitable corporations tax rebate checks.

I don't buy it!!

END DEFICIT SPENDING (once and for all)

Make it illegal.

Politicians should only be allowed to spend the amount they collect. In case of an emergency this law can not be broken or bent. It should be required that politicians come before the people and ask for a tax increase whenever the government needs more funds than expected. No more deficit spending for federal, state or city governments.

Profitable corporations need to start paying their fair share and stop taking government subsides, tax rebates and tax shelters/loopholes.

Every administration claims to be making cuts to defense spending and yet every year the military budget gets bigger and bigger.
I don't but it!!


Protect our borders. There is no logical explanation why after 9/11 we have not secured our borders.

Their solution is to build a magical fence.

I don't buy it!!


We should scrap our out dated over priced education system. Germany, like most industrialized countries pays half what we pay for education and their kids are better educated. Public schooling needs to guarantee more than a 50% success rate or be defunded. 

They claim, no child left behind.

I don't buy it!!


Politician is not an occupation. Politicians need to be held to one term.

Drug test the President. With a history of poor judgment and performance on behalf of our elected politicians we need to demand that mandatory drug testing be imposed upon all members of the Congress, Senate, Supreme Court and White House. Average citizens are forced/required to take and pass a drug test to work in a gas station--so why not those who want to legislate laws that we all have to live by?

Our political process should not be funded by corporations or secret PACs.

Television stations currently receive a huge tax break from our congress. They are not taxed for air time and in exchange television stations are suppose to provide so many hours of public broadcasting. I think that tax break should be abolished or in exchange television stations could give candidates equal air time which would replace the need for corporate donors.

They claim the system is broke and their doing the best job possible.

I don't buy it!!


Criminalizing drugs has not kept them out of the hands of anyone. Drugs have even been found in our elementary schools. The war on drugs is a monumental failure that's cost us not just money and lives but our freedom as well.

Politicians should defend your freedom, it's their job and sworn duty. What consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes should be no one's business but their own.

They claim to be winning the war on drugs. (Even though drugs are cheaper and more potent than ever before).

I don't buy it!!


If you are old enough to join the Army, go off to war and give your life for your country and are also old enough to be tried as an adult if arrested and also old enough to vote, you should also be old enough to buy a beer.

The government claims to be protecting you but I don't buy it!!

I'm sure that if any other viable alternative existed that you wouldn't buy it either, who would, unless they were forced. Which is where we find ourselves, forced to choose between one corrupt party or the other. They offer the same failed policies of the last 50 years. No solutions for our schools, economy, infrastructure or any number of problems facing this once great nation.
