If the US were to totally collapse my grand kids might grow up speaking Indonesian .


I'd probably be pissed off at the leaders of my country for putting me in such a vulnerable situation.

I see a lot of people blaming the US, until it works. Then they're back to blaming the US.

Text But when I look at it from my perspective in Aussie. We're in no better situation. Try explaining our political forum over the last six years to a septic.


Better situation perhaps not , but a really bad prime minister can easily be removed from office . Not sure if thats the case in the US .

Dont get me wrong , i appreciate the security that the US gives Australia . We have 24/5 million people .Indonesia has 250 million .

Ah, but wait...

After the election comes the two years of accusations of voter fraud by which ever side lost. Followed by two more years of run up to the next one...

Get your program here...!!!

Why would you let your own country be so dependant on another?

The USA didnt give the world a choice after the WW2

We're all dealing with poor leadership. Yet I don't find myself worrying about your next election.


Because Australia doesnt dominate the world economically or militarily.

...every time i go to ATS the place is swamped with US election threads.....

The reason for that is because, as you say

...if your country goes down the tube , mine and many more will go down with you....

The US is bigger than its President. The US won't collapse, even if both Presidential choices are morons and clearly poor choices. Their tenure will be fleeting.

There are too many links between the US and the developed (and democratic) world that cannot be undone by a poor President in the US. Just like in Europe and the EU, BREXIT for the UK will change a few things but the UK is still a part of Europe and cultural and national ties are deeply embedded.

Australia has a bright future and the ability to shape the whole region along with other nations.

Actually Australia has a very strong economy , certainly not the largest but pretty good for our population size en.wikipedia.org... . As for our military , yes heavily reliant on overseas countries for hardware .

I'm sorry to say that the madness won't be over after US election day, but will continue for at least another year with post election tears and fears.
I too am sick of this election fever but I am also terrified of the outcome of the results, terrified that either trump or Clinton will win.

It has a strong economy for its size.

One thing I admire about the AMerican system is that the candidates can fill a big stadium with crowds cheering, singing the national anthem and proudly waving american flags. There's no such thing in Australia, we don't have the same pride in our heritage or hope for our future. In the run up to every election we are cynical and fatigued by it all

As for it not going over well . hmmm disconnect button still works . Also i said an Australians view not Australia's .


As meaningless as saying a Non-US citizen, with all the trimmings, then.

Glad you have an opinion. as a singular human being with no other affiliations.

Oo

We can rule out Cronulla.

It's true tho, our disrespect for authority and government is one of our greatest strengths I think.
