Oh reeeaaallly now?


I think you just might be angry that we are opposing such an idiotic system as that, which has been imposed and widely accepted in the EU.


Take a look at how confused the children in Europe will be! Hope you guys have a whole lot of shrinks and hormones!

Speak for yourself. I care what other countries. I'm interested in how we are viewed by the rest of the world.




Now you care? You are always telling us you don't care what people think of you.


And as the rest of the post said I'm interested in how we are viewed by the rest of the world.
That is my level of care.
I forgot around here every detail must be explained and posts are picked apart

If it is examples of snobbery you're looking for, I bet you'll find a lot of it. Europeans especially will give you some good derision. But I look at America as the last saving grace of the West. It is the only country with the moral courage to stand up to tyranny and defend the world. It is the only country that learns from its mistakes.

Europe on the other hand is committing suicide. Once they slowly die off due to declining birthrates, the labour force will need to be replaced in order to continue funding their massive welfare states and bureaucracies. Despite that, they often still look at themselves as more enlightened. Hilarious.



^ This is exactly why you US-Americans are so "loved" by the world.
Yes, I should stop using sarcasm, but it was just so worth it.

Nobody loves a BULLY.


Nobody loves someone who also talks in tongue licks which also happens to be bullshiite as well, but I don't think that someone happens to be a good representative of most Americans either. That's the problem around here atm.

It's just a pity that the bad examples had to get their nebs in to a thread that asked for non-Americans to reply...hence thread taken over by the invisibles!

I'm glad the rest of the world views us the way they do.

Means we're doing something right.

Sigh..............Apparently I'm going to have to keep saying this...It's our country. We. Don't. Care. What. Other. Countries. Think. Period. Can I make it any clearer than that?
Do you see us calling you idiots because of who you elect? Do you see us going nuts and digging up dirt on them? No. You don't. It's your country, do what you want with it.
Got your country all sorted out and made it perfect? Got rid of all those crooked politicians who don't give a damn about you?
No?
Well then, maybe you should just mind your own business.


Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I find it interesting and a little amusing to hear what others think of my country. Keep in mind that most of us in America don't think that highly of European countries either.

They tend towards authoritarianism, socialism and nihilism and frankly I wouldn't want to live there either.

I like ordinordinary American people. I view the American political class the same way I view politicians from all countries, lawyers, and dog faeces.

Politics there are a bad joke .
Quite pathetic americans go on about freedom and democracy when they have neither as one side refuses to accept the outcome of fair legal elections instead resorts to violence and sedition because they didnt get their way .

Immigration the u.s only country stupid enough to not only not know the difference between immigrants and illegal aliens . They also stupid to put illegal aliens above their own citizens . Go try being an illegal alien in another country see how long you last in a foriegn jail before they ship you back to your country of origin .

Political correctness has destroyed and continues to destroy the very fabric of your country .

You treat your military and veterans like rubbish throwing them away when theyre no longer needed or of use .

Your healthcare system is a thinly disguised extortion racket that fails to even provide basic healthcare .

Your countries infrastructure is falling apart around your ears with nothing being done to fix it much less to upgrade it .

Your leaders have stripped away your constitutional rights and youve let them do it all in the name of "security" .

Basically you all destroyed everything your forefathers built and that made america .

Your educational system is a failure its more like an indoctrination system . Seen graduates of american schools who cant even read , write or understand basic english . Forget maths and sciences along with geography that makes their heads explode .

The u.s is pretty much beyond salvage at this point .

A bold strategy which would almost certainly backfire in spectacular fashion if attempted away from the security of internet warrior battlefields and the glow of a CRT monitor.



CRT monitors.... talk about backward!

The US always has, and still is the dominant power
as far as 'soft power' goes (like it or not, it's true)

The goodwill and support, rightfully garnered, after the Twin Towers atrocity
was frittered away in increments between 2001 and 2003
(or even 2006 depending on where you stand)
The US and it's motives were seen with distrust


Colin Powel's pantomime at the UN
Compounded by Gw's stupid wars
The whole 'freedom fries' bull#
Wolfie, Pearle, Rummy, PNAC
Abu Graib, Guantanamo,
Unlawfull renditions
Monsato
Food sovereignity

(list hugely incomplete)

Early 21st century US history will not be remembered kindly
Obama (like it or not) managed to stem that flow of distrust

Unfortunately, the current bumbling incumbent
will set the image of the US back about 20 years

So there you go, that's my feeling about the US on an average monday night !

How about another competing thread ?
"ATSers from abroad, can you say why you like the US ?"

I am amused. The OP, an American, is honestly (I think) trying to get a read on what others think of America.



Lol, the same op that just did a hit and run? The same op that has a thread on how awesome Trump is but in other threads hates on him?

The only thing the op wants is to start trouble on ATS.

If you consider Trump's campaign promises (build the wall, lock her up, no more regime change) "trivial issues," that's your problem, not mine, lol.

You say there's a war against "the real fascists," but Hillary Clinton walks free after our president essentially ran on locking her up.

Here in a few short years we'll all be having a laugh at the president whose greatest legacy so far is "triggering the left," lol.

Replace triggered with distracted.

Couldn't agree more, you nailed it.

Specifically though, the deaf, dumb and blind hypocrisy from half the comments in here can only be explained by the inability to comprehend the notion of liberty.

Most of them hate Trump, yet they always bring up the point and describe America as being a dictator, heavy handed and too involved in foreign affairs. While Trump is actively disengaging the US from military conflicts and foreign governmental affairs.

They don't want our involvement, but in any mutual agreement they demand we flip the bill then complain when we dictate the majority share of interest.

We liberated them from tyranny and fascism... twice. Now they delusionally paint us as such while they welcome in that time old evil again, with open arms, submitting and assimilating to their new subversive domineers.

Their but cowards and traitors to the blood and heritage that built their nations... and sooner or later we'll have to spill ours... again... to save their sorry asses.

Could be he's trolling, but he asked nicely and I answered nicely. I don't need to carry on about Trump. He'll show his true colours soon enough (sure, the pun's intended) and my opinion has been noted among those who care.

But having another poster jump in yelling about people expressing their opinions in response to a request for opinions...well, it is a mite rich.

I am just gathering some info for my own personal agenda on how other countries view the United States.

I would like to know where you believe we stand compared to other countries on political issues such as climate change and immigration issues. Feel free to discuss anything actually, religion, G20...anything.

I would also like to know your views on America as a nation and how Donald Trump has either changed these views for the better, worse or no change at all.

I know there is a low percentage of abroad ATSers on this board so Im hoping to gather all opinions in one place for a great discussion.

Thank you.



Who cares, this is just set up for a lot garbage to be tossed our way.

Its this attitude that make you pity us and think we are falling behind, isnt it.

Please, he does not speak for most of us. Intelligent people know that our reputation abroad is very important.

David64, you do not care what is going on abroad bc you are not intelligent and out of sight, out of mind.
