I have to laugh at the comments being made here by so many. America is proud and arrogant because it is the only remaining superpower. The rest of
the world owes a HUGE amount of gratitude to America. When tragedy happens around the world, who is the first one there with help and monetary aid?
When anything bad happens in the world, everyone wants to know when the Americans are going to come to their aid. During World War II alone, America
saved the butt of countless nations who would othrwise be speaking German or Japanese and living under totalitarian regimes. When military might
needs to be called in to handle whatever situations come up, who else has the balls to step in? Certainly not France or Italy. Thank God America has
some reliable friends in Britain, Australia, Canada and a few others with some balls as well. If not for America, where would technology be today?
Even countries who despise America drink Coke and wear Levi's. America is the way it is today in the world because the rest of the world put it there
and relies on heavily on it for financial aid, humanitarian aid and Democratic support. Is the country perfect? No, but then again nothing and no
I have lived in 16 countries around the world for about an 8 year period and know what much of the world is like. Those Americans who speak badly
against the nation are both uneducated and untravelled, and expect the country to do everything for them and give everything to them instead of
realizing that America was built on the principle of simply allowing the freedom for people to do for themselves.
I also have to laugh loudly at seeing many of the Obama supporters criticzing America for having too much control over people when this is the whole
tenet of the Democrats. If Obama becomes president, he wants more control over you than you are currently under. Democrats want to do everything for
you, but in order to do that they must make everything a government-run program, and increase your tax burden to pay for it.
