Have you considered separating American citizens away from the image of Americans that you've pieced together in your head? You aren't going to get much rational conversation without stepping back and setting aside your frustration. You're approach is very aggressive, and the sheer amount of direct and indirect insults you've said and implied thus far breaks down most communication by inciting heavy defensiveness and bafflement. As it stands, your OP and many following posts appear more like a compilation of accusations, rather than legitimate questions.

So, i grew up in the 90s, and we loved everything american here in Europe,
i had it all, WWF tradecards, skateboard,walkman,...etc (yeah, i am old)
and then slowly it transformed,.....
We got all the good stuff in Europe now without the bad shit, what happened?
So i was wondering, do american kids know that we laugh at them singing the anthem in class and shit like that?
(there are really schools that teach creationism?thats so scientology of you guys, damn...)
Do americans know that in Europe we see you just a little less developt like russians?
What happened?You used to be our dream!
And while the last questions might not work with you since you love those stars and stripes(LOL?)
here is a good one:
Could it be that the size of a country matter, look at it, it seems the smaller the country in the western world, the better it does, maybe we should think about borders differently?maybe three small U.S.A. would actually be awesome?


Well, to your last question, I would answer that Europe as a whole has had many more issues than the U.S. has (I know there is more history in Europe, but really, Greece isn't doing too hot right now, and they are much smaller than the U.S.)

About the development: Yeah, keep telling yourself that as you misspell "developt"

Singing the anthem in class is a tradition that is American in nature. It also (supposedly) strengthens patriotism/nationalism (though I would agree, this is a silly thing...and luckily, it no longer is done in our school district)

Your argument about creationism, while somewhat true, is also rather incorrect (speaking for the district I attend), as we are taught not creationism (which, as Wikipedia has just taught me, means that the universe was created through divine means, not scientific means, like the Big Bang/Evolution, or whatever), but instead that the world was created, and evolution is real...religion is kept rather far from the actual teaching, though is discussed sometimes as an argumentative point in class.

Finally, about us being your "dream"...I find it silly that any country would aspire to be like another country. Each has their differences in culture/society in such a way that implementing the successful systems of a different nation would spell disaster.

I'd say Germany and Sweden mostly. The immigration and violence there is insane—completely out of control.

... I love the U.S. Travelled there quite often, and met some pretty awesome people.

United States of America is a true free bastion in the world, no it is not a S worded place.

First of all, thank you, that was the best response i had on CR for like 3 years.

Second, how can you live there quiet?Do you plan to leave?What?

We grew up differently here, we would never vote for Trump, it is hard to understand.


Many people aren't living quietly. I would look at the Berniecrats. I was an avid supporter of Bernie sanders. I personally believe that Clinton is a sham of a person who stole the election through fraud and deceit that she set up beginning 8 years ago. I won't get into that now because its a different thing.

America itself isn't bad. America itself isn't a shithole. No worse than anywhere else. We have problems. Mainly our education system, healthcare system and Military spending. Underlying its the problem with having money in politics and unfair tax policies. But life on a daily personal basis isn't that bad. I make plenty of money. I have a good job. I have health insurance. I have a car. I'm doing fine. I wouldn't be doing any better in any other country. Well maybe I wouldn't have the college debt I have now.

I am considering finishing my degree in Ireland but I doubt I would move away from the states permanently. if Trump wins the election hopefully its a wake up call that will shock the nation into change for the better. Kinda like it takes someone getting run over to get a stop sign put in place.

But the whole of America isn't crazy. Its a small but politically vocal amount. The majority of Americans understand that their vote means nothing and out system is rigged. Some people are just okay with that and accept it passively. If Trump or Hillary win the presidency the actual effects won't be that different.

Look up the Souix Standing rock protest as a current example of people not sitting down and accepting things. The Wall Street protests. Ect.

EDIT:
Also its the most religious nation in the industrialized world and especially so if you don't count the Islamic world. This is a huge factor. People vote religiously rather than sensibly.

So, tell me, what tabloids do you prefer? The ones that appeal to your emotions, the ones that appeal to your emotions, or the ones that appeal to your emotions?

Source? For the increased violence?

Every actual source I've seen has shown that the average immigrant has lower crime rates than native Germans. I haven't heard much on Sweden. Sources are important. Though both are rather null points as the majority of the reason for the forced immigration is western (mainly US) involvement in the Middle East.

edit:
I misquoted this somewhat. I was trying to quote the one saying that immigration violence is insane.

Given the size of most European countries and the size and diversity of the US, I wish we'd divide up into about 5 countries and be a union of five separately governing countries. Northwest, Southwest, Central, Southern and Northeastern seaboard.
