The main problem with America is that they have too much money in politics, and that influence causes the country as a whole to engage in foreign escapades that make them look foolish.
In 2010, the US dropped out of the top 20 in a global league table of least corrupt nations tarnished by financial scandals and the influence of money in politics. The USA fell from 19th to 22nd in a 178 nation list, which is based on independent survey's of corruption. This was the lowest score awarded to the U. S. since the organizations 15 year history, and the first time it had ever fallen out of the top 20.
Now, they've caught up a bit in recent years, but this problem of government corruption plagues the USA, and Americans seem to be too lackadaisical/apathetic to actually get rid of these people. Normally, one wouldn't care, but as the worlds largest superpower, the things they do on foreign soil due to this corruption has a global effect on everyone, particularly their policies in the middle east. It needs to stop.
Americans as people though aren't any better or worse than people from other countries, but they can often be quite hospitable and generous.2
