    And yet the US is the most violent first world country and the most right wing.

    I still have a lot of good friends all over the world from those days. If college is for networking, then those years were as well in their own way.

    Blah. Not gonna be able to switch to Legal Aid major because I won't have high enough GPA when December rolls around....this is miserable. Pisses me off the 2 things I am most interested in Politics and History aren't really gonna help me find a job especially not in a smaller town like I live in.Still lost.

    Of the two majors, political science offers more possibilities. Government jobs in public relations would be a possibility. In fact, you would probably find a number jobs in government administration. They wouldn't pay much and you might have move across the country but it would be a start. Eventually going to law school or getting a Masters in public administration would open a lot opportunities.

    The mistake so many young people make is thinking a college degree is a ticket to a high paying job which is not the case except in a field with high demand. However, a college degree certainly isn't worthless. It just takes time to build up experience coupled with additional education. That should give you a good resume that can lead to really good jobs.

    And stop being a paranoid, racist freak show. That would also help.

    You can certainly get a job just make sure it's in someway related to your major, even if the salary is low.
