Please America, stop disappointing people

I think I have said this before. I feel obliged to say it again. Many are looking up to America as a role model; the leader of the world. Many equate the US with the truth, excellence, the way things should be done. But honestly, any critical person outside the US who follows the presidential election campaign will end up being disappointed, frustrated, disillusioned.

Does America still stand for anything? Does America still stand for the founding principles? Is America not eating up its own soul? Take the media. I just read an article by an American journalist on the two presidential candidates. The reporter is already referring to one as President and not the other. And he calls that reporting. Can we begin to talk of American public relations officers instead of American journalists?

Please, America, stop disappointing us. Many of us are still looking up to you for leadership in many areas of life. Please,
