Americans are so confused.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 Your health care system is one of the worst among industrialized nations. Your education ranking falls annually. Around half of your residents are living in poverty. Mental illness is demonized. Women are blamed for violent crimes. Rapists are rarely prosecuted and face consequences. Your economy is in shambles. Your unemployment rate is staggering. You are a divided nation.

Yet the issue that impassions you and gets you riled up is GUNS. Are you for real? Why cling to your guns and ignore the real problems? Can someone explain the thought process here? It's truly puzzling.

I discuss and read on the gun issue, doesn't mean I (or anyone else) has forgotten the other issues (which btw are not unique to ONLY the US).

That thought process isn't the thought process of all Americans. I'm not even sure it's that of most. It's just the group that gets the most attention, and happens to be the loudest.
