well,
I would say what, because there are far worse places to live, the majority of us go to bed at night knowing we'll have food and water for the next day, the main causes of death are brought upon ourselves and we know that it usually is a safe place to live.

The politicians may not be that great, but what about President Mugabe in Zimbabwe? I would say he is a considerably worse politician than anyone in this country.

I'm just saying, that really this country isn't as bad as most places so we should be happy that we live in a democratic, (largely)free country. I'm not saying that there aren't changes needed but we are far better off than most people.
