*Prepares for the anti-American sentiments of the ignorant, uneducated, apathetic teenage masses*

It was insane that Bush got voted into office again.
What will top it off will be mindless votings for 2008.. based on race and gender (I think you can guess who I'm talking about.. *coughOBAMAcoughCLINTON*) and not on political agenda and solutions. I hope Biden becomes president because he has a solution for everything, especially foreign affiars (his forte).

The USA is a double-edged sword. For every good it does, amplify evil x 10. However, no matter how corrupt/shallow/stupid/fat USA gets, it is still by far the #1 leading nation in the world. I'm not a nationalist, but I only take what I am given. Like I said in the other thread, if you seriously have nothing good to say about the country and you LIVE in it, pack your belongings or remain ignorant and dumb so I can use you as a step ladder for my bright and successful future.

so what you are saying is that your country is evil,but its good for you,because you can make a lot of money by using others as your step ladder?
thats sounds pretty ignorant, uneducated, apathetic and immature!

It's not insane that Bush got re-elected. Jebus, if you can't run a crushing campaign against the guy then you have to be twice the jackass. The candidates were all even worse idiots.
It didn't help around here that the Europeans took a far too keen interest in political proceedings either.
People weren't very happy about them posting minute-by-minute coverage of the election, and some idiots I knew voted the other way just to piss them off. The most I've ever seen in an American newspaper in regards to European politicians is a brief nod to the candidates involved, and then the election results. Not the highly opinionated stupid BULLSHIT that they had no business putting out, at times aimed directly at the American public as if we were children.

Enough of that rant though...
I've always found it funny... I grew up on a farm, moved to a city, and found the people were no different. Then it hit me, we're just a nation of educated farmers(don't take insult at that) in the moral sense. Most people here seem to always mean good, even if turns out bad, very much in a survival mode. From traveling out of country and coming back, and talking with immigrants (one a fascinating character from south Africa) you gain a whole new prospective on home.
People in other places are more... close? It's much more of a community. Here in the USA people wear individuality like armor. Some places (like Japan) the people wear two different faces, public and private. I don't see it as much here. Here you can live on a street for five years and not know the neighbors a few houses down. When my mom visited Germany she said there was none of that.
Doesn't mean there isn't bad apples. A lot of people just look out for their own group, or want to do honest business and get a proper slice of the pie for it. Others are just good on climbing over people to get to the top.

I think I think it's a lot easier to understand people in other places than here. Because everyone here is so damn individualistic the people are extremely hard to know as a whole nation, because the nation is so young each person draws on their own history for personality. I could be completely right in my assessment in one town and wrong in the other. I need to think on it more.

They started and they have to also give up, if they don't what to see destruction.
But if not then we have to finish it, then it isn't our problem, that was their wish.


Jesus, just shut up you idiot. I've never heard of anyone in Iraq burning an Estonian flag, so what the fuck are you talking about:

"but what we can do if terrorists are disturbing".
and burning our flags?"

If you feel so much like an U.S. citizen I hope Estonia sends you to the U.S. so you can hold Bush's hand there, idiot. Oh and muslim does not = terrorist, I noticed you making stupid posts like that a few times now, I wonder why no one bothered to correct you just once.

Most Muslims are nice. I knew one from Iran, and she owned a day care that I stayed in. She was one of the nicest people I know. And not all Muslims hate others from different faiths. When I was 5 I sand "Jesus Loves Me" and she thought it was cute and gave me candy.

I think that there is a need in Iraq to get rid of the terrorists and radical muslims, but you can't fight them with guns or wars, its something that has to be dealt with on different terms. I think Bush should have never gone in there, its a huge mess now from what he did. True, a good thing is that Sadam is gone, but now they have to deal with terrorism. Now we simply can't just leave, or the whole place will go to pot because Bush can't simply take out a dictator and make peace

I must agree......
That may be even more sad than the ''vote to piss them off'' one, is to truly belive all moslem are terrorist, and also that a ''half death from hunger'' country is more dangerous than the one doing nuclear test right up their nose....
yeah truly sad.
I know I'm gonna have plenty of crap .... some crap is worth getting...

I say this: To the victor go the spoils. We were a large reason why the Allies won World War II so i say since we can no longer withdraw into political seclusion, we must help the world out and frankly since we won, we should be able to do whatever we please, after all, we are the most powerful counrty( China rising quickly).

As an American who actually voted in the last presidential election, I voted for nadar. My reasoning? Simple. I don't care for bush, not that he hasn't been a good or bad president, i'm just annoyed with the way he talks. he gives texans a bad name. (i used to be a texan) And kerry? come on, i saw a speech he gave where he contradicted himself twenty times in the 30 minutes i watched it... that has no business being in office.
The last option (not counting the liberalist party) was Nadar. He actualy cut a deal, that if he could get 5% of the popular vote, they would recognise the green party and have three way televised debates. I thought that was a good enough reason to give him my vote, Because then the future could have more options.


you think its a scandal that the us dont ratifies the kyoto protocol,
or you think its the way to go right now?

I'm sorry I'm not up to date on the kyoto protocol, i'll check into it and get back and edit this post.


you find the world-police status the us claims ridiculous,
or you are happy to back up your country doing it?


I think that the US, being the last "superpower" since the fall of communism, has to take over the job of world police... the UN is too fucking wishy washy to actually do anything... they will talk everything to death before they think about taking action.
So i think it's apropriate to call the US the World's police.
We have more presence in in the world than anything.
We have the most firepower in the world
we have the money.
