‘Ugly American’ no longer just a name

To the Editor:

“Ugly American” is no longer just a name for Americans traveling to foreign countries. We now reflect this title in our daily lives.
Our selfishness, greed and our sense of entitlement is ending democracy that previous generations fought and died for.
Acting for the bigger good of society is evil and an infringement of MY constitutional rights. The Constitution does not include the right to threaten or kill your fellow citizens. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness applies to all citizens not just those who are healthy or wealthy. Our obligations to each other are Christian values that many have forgotten.
Look in the mirror. Are you an Ugly American?
