My point was that I do know these stats. Thanks for your time but I think the only one that has significant value is the incarceration of people for very petty crimes. This is also somewhat of a racial problem but af am also commit a higher percentage of the crimes. Gun violence happens but is blown out of proportion (I believe no one should have guns).
In terms of education. There is a varying degree of quality. However the US ranks 14th on standardized 3 subject exams. Now in terms of primary and secondary education the US is obviously behind some EU countries but still in fact good quality education. Despite having massive costs, return on investment towards degrees are still very high. Also the US has a majority of the top universities. Populations in states such as Mass. NJ, NY, Colorado, and parts of other coastal areas are educated as well if not better than European counterparts. It does not help that the Bible belt refuses to teach evolution and that urban schools have horrible study culture. However, I would say the education is at least top 25 in the world despite having such a large population. There are not 30+ million illiterate peoples. They are simply not able to read or write complex statements (Level 1 of literacy). This is bad but most of this population are elderly.
The water and electricity example is overblown as that is extremely rare. Infant mortality is rather high but the number is inflated by certain types of data reporting that includes early preterm births. On the topic of healthcare I would like to point out that though coverage is expensive, the wait times in the US are drastically shorter than EU. The US spends are very large amount on medical research and drug production and thus coverage for insurance is more expensive. (I believe it should be a right and universal). A good example of the quality of US medical expertise is a comparison to the mortality rate of cancer patients in the EU vs US.
Also you do exaggerate the amount of people "dying." The life expectancy of the US is very close to European comparable countries and is lowered by the horrible diet that people have. However there is a shift towards healthier living across the US. Homeless people and poor people dont just DIE. If they need to be treated by hospitals, the Hospitals will always treat first and then worry about money. The homeless ratio in the US is lower than the UK, NZ, and Germany. Also homeless mortality rates are similar for other first world countries too.
Furthermore I would like to say that though wealth inequality is an issue, the material goods that the poor possess outmatches most 1st world countries. The poor in the US have AC, fridges, TVs, cars and houses. The average household size is substantially larger than Europe. Electronics are cheaper and more affordable, along with gas and food. The minimum wage in most states are 10 dollars now.
Also I would like to say that you picked very specific areas that are not representative of the US. The mortality rate in certain deep south counties have to do with racial issues and black on black crime. What can a government do about that? Welfare housing is widespread. Similarly you can find equally bad areas in UK, Germany, and Canada. Key is that the US is a way larger country and also attractive to low income immigrants (a good thing) but that also does skew the data.
If you work hard and study well in the US you can very well end up with a 80k+ salary along with a big house and 2 cars.
Also it is important to notice that there are states such as Massachusetts New Jersey and parts of Cali, Washington that are at the top of first world conditions.
I originally poked fun at you since you mentioned some exaggerated 'facts'but I respect your argument. The US isnt perfect but for most it is a good place.
