Is America the Greatest Country on Earth?

In the ongoing Democratic National Convention (July 25 -28) in Philadelphia, at least one political wife and one political husband lent credence to the fact that I have mentioned above about politicians.

First, President Obama’s wife Michelle Obama and then the presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s husband Bill Clinton said without any hesitation that “America is the greatest country on earth.”

Perhaps, both these politically charged spouses knew that their assertion was a mere hyperbole intended to hoodwink the American voters who are ready to get hoodwinked.

Truth, however, is that today America is in such a bad shape that no politician can save it from the impending crises.

Picture this:

– Today, one in three Americans has absolutely nothing saved for retirement.

– One in five Americans expects to die in debt.

– 45 million people – or one in seven Americans – are living in poverty.

– One in six Americans is struggling with hunger.

– With nearly 50 million poor and swelling debt that has crossed $19 trillion (click here for real-time debt clock), America is being counted as another poor country of the world.

– Plus, America is facing extreme racism, terrorism, street fights, gun violence, joblessness, and whatnot.

Although Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and rival Hillary Clinton are delivering loud hate speeches against each other, they have not yet given any solution to the persisting problems that are troubling Americans.

In such a situation, only God (if he or she exists) can save Americans from habitual liars and political deceit.

Meanwhile, RMN News Service has started a new poll to know your choice for the next President of America. You can vote in the “Your Voice” section of the site.

Who should be the next President of America?

  • Donald Trump
  • Hillary Clinton
  • None of the Above

The U.S. presidential election is scheduled to take place Tuesday, November 8, 2016.
