US political arguments are much more angry and childlike compared to UK folk

Civility isn't what the US spreads. You'd be closer with body bags.



And money. Don't forget money. We spread that around like we have an infinite amount.....wait...


No prob. Stolen oil covers it.

US politics is much more interesting. Even the UK’s greatest political moments pale in comparison to the US’s most benign.


It might help that our politicians don't put on wigs and makeup before they do their job....

Instead ours just don't show up most of the time.


The founding fathers wore powdered wigs, didn’t they?

Yea, until Jethro started using choice words for men in drag.

Just perception and confirmation bias, CornishKeltguy.

Your rancour (sp.) takes place on the floor of the House of Commons, where prime ministers get shouted down, shouted over, and are expected to hold a weekly meeting on the floor so the opposition can make accusations and call them names.

The house of reps in the US is how people EXPECT Brits to behave. No one talks out of turn or calls the speaker a name.

We limit our rancor (sp.) to one set of venues; y'all choose another.

If you understood our morality, you'd understand we're doing it to help them.

We used to be taken advantage of and we rose up and became the most powerful country in the world.

It's like when a big brother rough houses his lil bro, it's to teach him to stick up for himself.

We really want them to steal it back... We're just waiting, that's all (and using it a little as a holders fee).

star from me, but what confirmation bias? I'm talking about ATS and you guys are rabid toward each other in many threads.
Brits argue for sure but we usually get back to banter and taking the piss after a while, see the current Brexit thread, and emotions run high there with lots of members, yet without the anger of US threads.
I've got a couple of arch rivals on ATS but still we take the piss and would probably have a right good laugh over a pint and a game of pool.
I imagine some US members would just shoot each other given the chance lol

I don't know the proper response to this. "Really?" "How so?" "Are you smoking crack?" I know the Martyr Syndrome is America's new pass time but this is far too "out there."

SEE?!?!?! People still try and act like we're not children of God spreading our good word and blessings.

We could have kept the Polio vaccine to ourselves and just made a killing off of selling Canada crutches.... Ungrateful bastards.

Quick, someone sacrifice a child or a goat (preferably a child), so we can get Augustus's mason ass in here on this.

Hahaha
These replies are hilarious

What up Cornish?

Look at the replies in this thread. That is your answer.
You ask a question and people have to puff up and defend.

To be honest it's been a good chuckle reading some of the witty replies.

I was expecting more anger though, almost disappointed now lol

There’s no doubt about it though, Modern American politics are far more interesting to follow than ours. Fascinating.

Its because the folks in the city want it run their way, and the folks in the country are fed up with being pushed around and insulted by the same folks in the city.

Yea, but UK had the ultimate troll when they got China addicted to opium to offset their trade imbalance from tea. LMFAO, that was 4chan status.

Do you think?
None of it seems to be about actual politics, just more who shagged who, and who groped who.
It would be as lame as finding out Dennis Skinner felt up Theresa May at a party 20 years ago...now there's an image I want burned into your mind haha.
