The US changed course in 1980 and has been going steadily downhill since then.
People don't realise even now, the damage that was done to the US economy and society by Reagan/Thatcher voodoo economics.
You worry about US alot for someone who doesnt live here. In your earlier posts you seem awfull fond of the viet cong. Are you just a hippie coward who fled to Canada or do you just slimey little commies who strap nombs to kids are cool
The US was, until Obamacare, the only industrialised nation without a universal access health care system. The healthcare system in the US ranked 37th in the world in 2012.
Surely we can all agree that is a disgrace for a country that was as wealthy as the US up until 1980.
