    I think it is clear that I am not a liberal...but I can't see much wrong with that the "elites" were saying.

    Generally speaking...people are stupid, lazy and uninformed..and increasingly so.
    Consider...
    Decades ago popular TV shows included numerous news-related shows.
    Newspaper sales averaged 80% of all households.
    Nightly news audience was almost double what it is today.

    Americans are indeed fat, lazy slobs. Well, about 50% of the country is. The other 50% support the fat side.

    What's wrong with America?

    The mindset that, buy virtue of being an American, you are entitled to a certain standard of living, and that, if you do not enjoy that standard of living, it is someone else's fault, and so the government should provide you with said standard of living.

    Interestingly enough, I would suggest that the vast majority of Americans are most of the things that were suggested in the video. I wouldn't include "racist" or "mean", but the first half dozen or so of the adjectives I think DO represent the majority of Americans today.

    Of course, I think that because most Americans today see little wrong with the way this country operates, the way our society runs, the way our lives are lived, and pretty much everything else about this country, it's history, and what it was intended to be. That's what got us into this situation in the first place.... people too uninvolved, stupid, and scared to do what was RIGHT rather than what was EASY.
