Texas, Florida, California, New York, and Georgia will have the most of these problems for obvious reasons.
Thought New York has amazing infrastructure, and public transportation, I take that about back about New York they are an amazing state.

Oh! P. S. They are so obessed with politics, F politics!
And in many respects, yes, there's no two ways about it, it's a very bad country. We should call a spade a spade.
I think you are being biased and not objective. There are many worse countries than U. S. but you just focus on U. S. because its existence offends your ego as a brit probably.In U. S. people have an opportunity to start their own business and make it world famous. In U. K. they have to compete with classes that were built around kings and queens 500 years ago. The London stock exchange is almost exclusively focused on preserving old money vs. NY's dynamism. I think it's clear which system is better for most people to work with.
Much of that is true. It doesn't have to be, but it is.
@Whtevernever No its not. Our homelessness is on par with every other nation (per capita, obviously we have more because we have substantially more people).Crime is actually as low if not lower then other western nations if you actually bother to do basic research. For example the UK has far more violent crime then the US does. Now it claims it has fewer homicides which every one tries to claim makes them better then the US but they ignore the reason why they have lower homicides, its because they don't record them. See you find a dead body in the US with a knife in its back, its considered a murder (and with good reason), in the UK if you find that it may count as a violent incident but it is not counted as a homicide unless some one has been charged and found guilty of the crime. So all the unsolved murders don't count as murders in the UK. Once you actually account for that you see that the US is actually either as safe or safer then the UK and other western nations. Scandinavian countries have much more devestating mass shootings then the US has and depending on what reports you read more of them. When it comes to drugs we are no worse then any where else, I mean scandinavia has a rampant heroin problem, as does the UK yet you don't really hear anything about it because most nations don't air their dirty laundry like the US does. This makes it so that people get this squeeky clean image for these places (relatively speaking) but it means the US is more likely to do something to fix the problem (in denmark they just get tax payer funded homes for drug addicts and give them state paid for heroin so they can keep their streets clean, effectively brushing the problem under the rug).
@Whtevernever Our transportation is no worse then any other nation at least given our size. For instance we don't have bullet trains but that is because our cities are far more spaced out then any other countries. Going from chicago to austin texas is the roughly the same distance as traveling from Ankara Turkey all the way to Paris France, and that is the shortest route across america. Our infrastructure is crap, the only accurate statement she made but that is due to unions which increases the cost of any infrastructure project by orders of magnitude and increase the time it takes by the same orders of magnitude. If we got rid of them we would be fine. As for disease, that is idiotically stupid. We have seven times higher survival rates for cancer and traumatic injury compared to any other western nation. Our healthcare system is provably superior to all others (both in our survival rates and in the fact that americans do not travel to other countries for care in most cases, but people from other countries come to the US to use our healthcare system. We also have I believe it was seven of the to ten hospitals in the world, produce 80% of medical patents and development, 70% of pharmacutical development etc.). As for over population, our national parks if combined together would be the fourth largest country in the world. Claiming we are overpopulated is moronically stupid.
I feel like it got worse 2015+
Honestly, The democratic party and CNN waged an all out campaign to disrupt Trump and in doing so they intentionally highlighted everything that was wrong with the country.Think about it though. We just got done with 8 years of Obama as president. Nothing went bad overnight. They were only glorifying the country when he ran it. within a year it became hell on earth. What changed? They didn't want Trump to succeed so they smeared everything he did and showed all of the problems that existed even under Obama. It's a disgusting tactic and it shows exactly why we are so divided today
No president can fix the country. Trump was very depressing yes but it’s these issues are decades old.
Yes there are some problems but living here is so much better than most of the worldMost people in India and China have dirt floors
But Europe is so divided amongst itself there is not a single European standard
Reminds me of this cartoon
@Tea-Spaghetti You can find common grounds in diversity. However in this case I dont think there is a single developed EU country that falls behind USA in any social category.
I think UK comes close though. That is probably why I don't like UK.
@Tea-Spaghetti Well they do have their own budget Trump but the biggest difference is that while their politics is also corrupt it has not taken root in the population like it has in USA. In other words there is at least hope for the UK to elect good politicians and improve their country where as I hold no hope for USA to even want a good leader at this point.
The US is a big country and my family moved to US from China in 1989. I think US is a good country all things considered. I'm sure Europe has a good standard of living as well but I don't think Europe has as much flexibility in it to accommodate immigrants like the U. S. does that is why there are more immigrants to U. S. so I think your criticism of the U. S. is overly harsh.
@Tea-Spaghetti Is it though? From what I have seen modern USA is actually terrible for immigrants and offer little to no protections or aid that I would expect from any developed EU country. A good example is enrolling into a free education in English and then after graduating they usually offer the ability to gain permanent citizenship. I have also heard of things like providing aid to get drivers licenses and providing free housing but those are more rare.
EU country can give free education but unemployment rate is higher and jobs are harder to get because supply is lower. Also there is more bureaucracy and and less flexibility on a lot of stuff. I can travel from New York to San Diego and I'm still in the same country. In Europe I would have to pass a lot of borders and customs for each country. Although I guess the EU does away with some of that but the EU has its own problems as well. I guess I pick EU over UK though because I simply do not like UK at all.
@Tea-Spaghetti Unemployment rates are not really that different between EU countries and USA. If you want a job you generally get one and if you can't then EU countries usually have very robust systems that helps you financially while you are unemployed as well as tracking down employment for you.As for border checks, they are generally not a thing within EU. I can take a car right now and drive pretty much anywhere I want. This borderless status also extends a bit outside the EU too since some countries like Norway and Switzerland has agreements along those lines.
Really I hear unemployment rate in Spain right now is like 20% that sounds insane. Of course I understand Spain is not all of Europe but there is not a single state in the U. S. that has a rate that high. I've also visited Europe and some countries the bureaucracy is really bad like especially in Italy and Portugal. Also I was reading about London stock exchange and it predominately caters to old money from kings and queens and is not good for newer businesses that are trying to get big. That is why world famous companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Pfizer are all from America and not Europe. I actually can't think of a single world famous British company. All the smart people from UK got to US to start their business. Therefore I think the ease of doing business is better in US than Europe or UK.
In America immigrants have a lot of opportunities. Not all immigrants are the same. Some immigrants are really stupid and screw up their own situation. That can't necessarily be blamed on Americans.
@Tea-Spaghetti Yeah there are a few problem children in Europe such as Spain, Italy, Greece etc.. There are reasons for this but the story is similar to what is happening in USA but on a smaller scale. As for why you do not know any British companies? Well you probably do, things like BP for example or Rolls-Royce and Tesco. Thing is though that the British economy is not really aimed at consumers the same way the American economy is. In Britain its more of a service based economy such as international banking as well as a fair amount of industry. Not things that normal people ever hear about yet are massive players on the world markets.Also, far less "smart people" go to USA than you think, especially these days.
