What Ails America?

There have been all sorts of polls about American politics (including here), but none of them has addressed the "bigger picture". So I'm now asking: What Ails America? The answers will probably be far more diverse and complex than the recent "what's ailing Russia" poll, I'm sure (it was the Chechens, we get it. Oh wait...). After all, America Iz Da Bestest, therefore morst diverse, complex, and most fascinating place on Earth, no? Besides, I'm sure you guys have much to say on the matter, being the Americacentrics that you are. ;-)

So what's ailing America? (Please use both polls as the slots weren't enough).

Nothing ails America, America's base is sound, it's just a projection of your imagination
2(0.8%)
(Nothing of the above, I already used the previous section)
7(2.7%)

Of course there's probably more than just one thing ailing America, so we could vote for several things at a time.
