Not an American but from my perspective i see America is a country heavily controlled by money.
I know every country has that problem but in America it seems to be getting bad.
SOPA, PIPA, Tax cuts for rich/corporations, paying off debt with tax payers money while the people at fault didn't pay a single dime, healthcare system based on insurance
Freedom wise: NSA doing things that they like just because they have power, Net neutrality, mobile carriers controlling lots of stuff cause FCC/whoever doesn't care (not sure if this really counts), lots of controlled news/media
That's the perspective i get at this point of time, note that i can be wrong cause i don't live there and information on the internet can be skewed. And i don't know much about constitution, liberal, democrats, republicans and stuff like these.
