It is not ok...

-that every citizen does not have access to an equal education
-that we allow our children to make the same mistakes we did and not suffer any consequences
-for people to be denied adequate healthcare
-that in this day and age, we had an entire population of people indefinately displaced because of a hurricane
-for us to live in one of the most powerful countries in the world, but yet the government seems powerless to help a majority of its own people
-for it to take a hollywood film maker to get the government to pay attention to their own missteps, an then go on to blame them for pointing it out
-that we have forgotton the founding principles of our country; that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are what our government was set up to pursue and not the advancement of the big corporations and forcing evangelical christian values on the masses
- for the government to use our name to violently spread democracy; this being said, the spread of democracy is not a bad thing, doing it by using military force is not
-that this country's citizens would rather lead by someone who is "like" them, than by someone who is smarter than them
