lol, what kinda choice is that?
America has its charms, though it keeps them hidden or obscures them by inappropriate juxtapositions, for instance, beautiful university campuses next to hideous strip malls, or great shows like X-Play next to commercials about vaginal yeast infections. There are some super nice people here, folks you can drink at a bar with and have a nice time, and a greater share of the worlds total assholes too.
As for the govt, what can you say about institutions drowning in bureaucratic feces and corruption so much so that no sane person would engage in public service. What can be said about a govt or a law-enforcement regime that when the greater populace demonstrates that at best it has a very mixed support - it takes that for free license to do as it wishes..?
Personally I have hated America, and I have lived in many countries, and I have discovered not every nation is worthy of loathing. So my answer would be I hate America and its Govt. But people are people and they have their own capacity to choose - whatever the environment.
