No, it's literally being destroyed from the left and the right ;)
But honestly, I feel that here are tons of issues, both socially and legally, that need to be fixed before we can start heading in the right direction again.

Republicans are SO freaking hypocritical. They were screaming about how Obama has no experience, he's only a "community organizer" and they'd vote for Donald Trump or Ben Carson? Hmmm

You're right about Trump, but Carson has the political/economic knowledge that Obama lacks. You're also wrong about Carson being any sort of community organizer; frankly, he lacks presence. A solid candidate though.

More Violence against our Police Officers due to the fake media and weak weak Politicians sticking their noise into it without merit. Top down leadership is horrible, not good being a white Police officer right now.

That's a very linear minded analysis. He may be a problem, but there's a dozen others, many of which we the people are responsible for. The citizens of Republics are accountable for the direction their nation goes.

Putting the entirety of the blame on a president (any president) is choosing to ignore the many real problems, and rhetorically by people who don't exactly understand how the country operates and changes.

"Free" healthcare. Where do you think that healthcare came from? Incredibly high taxes. Not only that, but they are being flooded with immigrants. On top of all that, you are ridiculed for being proud of your home country.
