23. America is the land of opportunity!

You can get rich and famous in America.

If you don't succeed, try harder.

If you still fail, it's obviously your fault.

If you can't pay your bills, or feed your family, it is your fault.

If you get sick but can't afford health care, so you stay home and die. It's your fault.

Don't expect the government to help you, that is Socialism, which is evil! You are on your own.

(Now, there are countries around the world where people live with no education, no support to feed their families in desperate times, and inaccessible health services. We call them 'Third World Countries'. Heaven help you if you live in one of those and the virus infects you!)

America isn't a prosperous country, not for most of the people who live in it, anyway.

It's sunk to being a third world country. MAGA assumes America was great once. I don't see that moment anywhere in it's history.

OK. I'm being unpatriotic. It's ok. I'm not American.
