Nothing improves without criticism - the determination of what, specifically, is wrong or lacking. This is a place for a polite, respectful discussion/debate about what needs to change in the US. While most people agree the US isn't perfect (what is?), we're sure not to agree on what's wrong with it. Half of us probably feel like shipping all the liberals or conservatives to the moon would be the best start. But let's get beyond that stuff, as it only incites flaming. Let's get into detail and get specific. Facts and opinions are both welcome. You may be asked to back up your facts with research, and that's fair. Opinions need not be proven, of course, but be prepared to "agree to disagree". People who think there's virtually nothing wrong with the US are very welcome to participate. I'll let someone else start this off: Name something you feel needs to change in the US.
