What a piece of crap!
9 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Written totally from the Obama point of view. What made America great was capitalism, even if you don't want to admit it. From the railroads to the oil, these guys made it happen and made us the greatest country in the world! You want to be like France and Spain, then stay the course. They had the most skin in the game, they should reap the greatest rewards. If you don't like it, go out and do something better. Quit waiting for someone to spoon feed you. Go get your food stamps and welfare, continue sitting on your ass, you contribute nothing to this great country. We need more like the Koch brothers to make this country great.
