We've seen the GDP number manipulated during this crisis, Gov propping the economy up with lots of self-debt that we cant pay back.
We've seen that other developed counties in the world bawk at us. Example being the American woman who killed a guy in the UK by driving on the wrong side; and the US said she had diplomatic immunity, when she did not. 
Crime stats... Crime isnt crime if it isnt punished or even taken to the courts proper. A sitting president was impeached, but not removed from office. He was charged with high-crimes. If you need a statistic, just look at how stacked the government is from a 2-party system.
I'd completely agree that America is fucked.
> lots of self-debt that we cant pay back.
Neither of those work that way. I agree on the 2-party stacked system though.
Didn't realize the US was that bad.
