Just if it bears the old stars and strips. Though really China and Japan have the title of likely to rule the world. Both are becoming economic powerhouses and Japan is entering a nationalist phase and are rebuilding their armed forces now that they are no longer held to the treaty they signed at the end of WWII .

Hell if China and Japan ever got over all the bad blood I'd really be worried.

A world government doesn't need the old players at the table. China, the U.S, and Russia are not fit heads of a world government. Too many of today's conflicts have roots in their blundering and wilful acts.

It's not like the new states won't have their own representatives and vote for the president, though.

Yeah but there is what 300 million people in the U.S versus 7 billion for total world population . And a democracy is what the world government would likely be since democracy is overall more popular than that useless Republic ya Yanks are still using. I mean hell even your liberal elements would be considered centralist or right winged themselves anywhere else.

Don't worry, we have democracy at the state level, so you'll get to vote on issues besides just electing representatives.

Remember, it's the world, not the western world. I think there may be more presidential republics than parliamentary systems.

There may be people who disagree, but American Exceptionalism will just have to prevail and drag the world into modern unity.

Germany is also starting to build their Army and I do believe Germany has a stronger economy than Japan, though less than China. Trump has rather worried Europe as a whole and people are calling for Germany to work on their Army. Germans dislike it (I am neutral on it), but I can see why they wouldn't.

Edit: German/Japan alliance for the 3rd time? That would be something for the books!

It would be but I rather lay my bets on Japan alone. Japan is already increasing enlistment rates and military spending , and it's armed forces are increasing their capabilities daily practically speaking . And unlike Germany Japan has an active threat in North Korea which is rallying even the non supporters behind the current nationalist tendencies of the Diet. Since the nationalist streak has been something that has never been a hard sell in Japan.

Yes but does American Exceptionalism truly exist anymore? Everything that made the United States of America unique and ideal are beginning to go the way of the dinosaurs. That once admirable trait of going to war for the ideals your nation believed in is something a lot of your fellow countrymen are refusing to believe in. In fact I dare say the current generation of Americans have less backbone then their fathers and grandfathers had.

Sure, we should definitely make America great again in that respect.

As per Section 7, "America Resurgent" of the Republican Platform:


We are the party of peace through strength. We believe that American exceptionalism — the notion that our ideas and principles as a nation give us a unique place of moral leadership in the world — requires the United States to retake its natural position as leader of the free world.

Tyranny and injustice thrive when America is weakened. The oppressed have no greater ally than a confident and determined United States, backed by the strongest military on the planet.

Quite simply, the Republican Party is committed to rebuilding the U.S. military into the strongest on earth, with vast superiority over any other nation or group of nations in the world. We face a dangerous world, and we believe in a resurgent America.


This will be leveraged for the manifest destiny of all the world's States becoming part of the Union.

Seems about right. I don't go as far as the left today where it seems more authoritarian.. More of a classical liberal.

I trust this surprises no one.

But yeah, this one is kinda crap. Some of the questions could be worded much better.

https://www.politicalcompass.org/test is still the best one of these I've seen.

Looked it up and I definitely don't agree with all the tenets, but most labels rarely fit people to a T.

I'm a confirmed Catholic and this is bullshit. Catholic dogma makes virtually no demand of understanding scripture for it's lay people. On the contrary, the Catholic teaching is that lay people do not have the authority to interpret scripture. At most, an ambitious layman may sit down with this Bible and his Catechism and memorize the official understanding of Scripture.


Then you had both a forgiving catechism and a lazy ass priest. I did not, even now scripture still holds some interest to me.


Having grown up Catholic as well I remember having scripture hammered into my head at every available junction. After my parents divorced my mom pulled me out of the Catholic fear pit and moved to a Presbyterian Church. They were much much more chill about, well, literally everything.

The Presbyterians wanted me to colour Jesus. The Catholics wanted me to fear him, God and everything else. >.>
