    Please be brief. I will briefly state that there probably are 100 things (or more) wrong with America, but I will state just one for now >>

    America is too much run by rich people. Members of Congress, the President and Vice-President, and members of the Supreme Court are generally all rich people. What do they know about middle class, lower middle class, and poor people's lives ? How can they make decisions about things they have no experience with, or have long forgotten from years past ? When have these people ever been unemployed, and out looking for a job, with a wide variety of things being used against them ? (credit reports, smear talk from former employers often untrue, etc). The last time I applied for a job I was told I would never get hired because employers require RECENT employment in that job occupation (within last 2 years). There's probably a long list of ways people can be denied a job, that shouldn't exist, and don't make sense.

    Narcissism.

    It's not that Obama is acting as president.

    It's not that Democrats are running the senate.

    It's simply that enough people are dependent or mindless enough to have elected them. The first two have potentially easy solutions.

    The third? Not so much.

    What is wrong with America?

    Too many whiny pessimists who constantly look for what is wrong instead of showing some balls and offering solutions.

    As an Independent, I would not have voted for these Democrats on the basis of quite a few issues (immigration, affirmative action, Islamization, death penalty, etc), but I have grievances against Republicans too >> Taxation of the rich, minimum wage, business regulation, workers' rights, etc.

    Allow me to offer one solution. How about having the Presidency, Congress, Court judges, and Agency officials not be paid (Anything). Have all the jobs done on a volunteer basis, and stop all money input in elections. And all one term only (eliminating the drive to be re-elected)

    Nobel thoughts but likely not very helpful in combating the symptoms of megalomania.
