I know it's true cos I saw it on TV 

Oh crap.

I have spent a lot of time in America, and it is a fabulous and beautiful country. Some of my good friends are intelligent, witty, humorous Americans. The country’s cities are awe-inspiring, but pale next to the vast plains, the mountains, parks and deserts. It has the potential to be the greatest nation on earth. The inclusivity of the great melting pot, and the value placed on the essential elements of freedom and happiness are something to admire and aspire to.

In its darkest corners, though, America is hell. The richest and the poorest are something that any nation should be ashamed of. The selfish and short term interests of the oil barons and the old money are rightly and roundly condemned. Then there are the red neck masses – simplistic and simple, unquestioning and uninspiring. Both presidential candidates come from the one end, and the majority of voters seem to come from the other. And now the masses have elected the moron, thereby condemning themselves to another four years of business-driven government, lack of accountability and general arrogance.

Way to go guys.
