Sexist. Its taken over 200 years and still no female head of state. Despite current events, it may not even happen any time soon..

Looking from the outside at the current presidential campaign I'd say "ugly". Very ugly.

Agree with SimondB, when the choice for pres comes down to Clinton or Trump, the country is NOT in a very good place.

How about FREEDOM! That is the one word used to describe my country that I have heard from one end of this planet to the other over the past 50 years of intense travel and dialogue with people from every socio-economic and cultural mileu. And this is why we are hated.

fgm333,

No one would hate the U.S.A. if it were free.

It isn't. It says it is, but it really isn't.

Many Americans are the kindest, most tolerant people I know. I have NOTHING against them. Unfortunately the U.S.A. is overrun by greed. Halliburton, Monsanto, Wall Street, TPP.

Snowden and Assange are in exile for speaking the truth.

There was freedom, but it's fast disappearing.

Greedy. Violent. Barbaric. Uncultured. Ignorant. Arrogant. A six-way tie for 1st!

No one would hate the U.S.A. if it were free.

If it were free, people in countries with less freedom would feel jealousy and would want to bring it down to their level. It's human nature.

That's what other struggling countries felt when the US was having a flying economy in the mid-90s to the turn of the century.
