I'm American and I know it's not true.
Well, it's somewhat true, like those facts exist. But they are wrongly placed. This story isn't the average American's life, it's actually the sad story of the less-fortunate American life.
So many of these statements are hacked and slashed from horror stories, each piece belonging to a different person, and then thrown together like it's truth for the general populace.
I could paint a similarly dismal picture of how England is becoming George Orwell's nightmares incarnate, or how Russia suffers a political corruption ring larger than America's ever was. Or how every socialized country suffers from the loss of literally just under half their wages to pay for whatever the government sees fit, regardless of their political beliefs.
But hey, America sucks, right? And despite the fact that America has twice as many internet-users as the next-runner-up country (With Germany being the highest European country, with about 1/4 of America's), everyone on the internet swears they're not American. Or swears they're an American who hates America.
Ever get pissed off when you see mis-guided feminists convince a great girl to become a man-hater? That's how I feel every time some misguided facts convince yet another American teenager that this country is worse than even the Third-World.

there's no such thing as middle-class anymore, it's almost impossible to start a business anymore, the companies don't even want you driving anymore that's how high gas prices are. Everyone's poor, and taxes are stealing from the rich and ignorant retards think the government's good because they give you welfare, well guess what ? Welfare should be abolished, all it does is cause laziness and incompetent citizens

The middle-class exists. I know this, because I grew up middle class, and would still be middle-class if I lived back in Tennessee.
It's not impossible to start a business, it's just difficult. And everyone is too terrified to try because the world has us convinced it's impossible. *cough*google*cough*microsoft*.
Welfare is an issue, and many Americans also believe it should be either heavily altered or done away with. I personally think there should be tighter restrictions on it (such as the drug testing that the OP of the thread in this content put down as terrible oppression.)
The rich are taxed more heavily because they keep finding a way out of it. The government here is corrupt and incompetent, but the same can be said about most countries in the world. But the growing prevalence of third-party and independent-party candidates, it's a mending process. Not only that, but the growing awareness of civilians and our growing willingness to act (see:occupy Wall St.) bodes nothing but well for future activism and an improving country.

No, actually. While there are people that are obscenely-wealthy, that doesn't mean everyone who isn't is immediately poor and suffering.
I will give you this, the health-care system is flawed. Terribly flawed. It was set up by greedy men, and perpetuated by their greedy descendants.
The college system isn't flawed, we're just all too proud to go to community colleges, and consider anything less than Ivy-League not worth getting. Even that aside, we're creating more eligible scientists than most other countries.
And my point about the internet wasn't about America being better for it, I was just pointing out how odd it seems to me that American's seem to be the minority on the internet, despite being a clear majority (behind China, with double of even American users. But that's a whole different discussion in itself.)

this statement is absolutely false. you must believe every propaganda piece you see.

Ever heard of free-range chickens? Or whole foods? People make it sound like America is the only place with fucked food standards, when I've hear real horror stories of the quality of meat in the UK. My grandfather owns a farm. He raises cattle and chicken. He then sells them to slaughterhouses when they are ready to be turned into food. No torture-cages to be seen. No hormones.
Just because you buy the 30-cents/lbs beef at Wal-Mart doesn't mean all food is shit.
And I'm not trying to say America is better, I'm just saying they're on-par. Everything I see about America is about how they're fucked every way from Sunday, when there's really not a lot going on here that most countries are suffering from.
And trust me, friend. If you go ahead and try to run away to a foreign country, no matter how much better off they are (let's pretend they are, for this story), you're going to be an immigrant. So while you wait for citizenship to be approved, you get stuck in a shit-tier job doing shit work for shit wage while living in a shit apartment. You won't be better off.

massachusetts. that explains a lot. not exactly known for farming and livestock.
Massachusetts- oh thanks for "This Old House " and Sam Adams beer. the rest of it you can keep. (especially Harvard which is a liberal brainwash factory.
