I am from the netherlands, and I think America is a great country in a lot of aspects. Not sure wether you were also interested in positive feedback
though, so let's start with the negative feedback.
First of all I really don't understand -especially realizing how he "won" the elections in 2000- that you guys voted Bush back into the white
Also, I think Fox is the most retarded news network I have ever seen in the world. The plain idiotic programs they show you about my country (the
netherlands) almost made me laugh.
I hope most of you Americans know that Fox is low quality and not worth looking at.
I don't understand your pride. I don't get what's so great about owning a gun, and I sometimes get the feeling some of the more lucky and wealthy
americans are pretending there are no problems in the USA, when they go into their hysterical pride-mode, waving those banners around at elections.
(nation of courage)
It seems to me America is socially less organized than the netherlands for example, and even though this does motivate people to get a job, it also
puts people who allready have the odds against them in an even worse position.
When people in my country say "that's so american!" it's usually not good, and it can mean a lot of things;
That's so fake.
That's so corny.
That's so superfacial.
Not sure why exactly this is though.
Oh and before you think everyone in the netherlands hates you, we don't. Most people think America is a great country with great achievements and a
united and friendly population, but no country/nation can be perfect eh?
