allies huh ? have you talked to your neighbor lately... I live in US and on the street level jive, (like outside of the internet) this is a general consensus.

Your post was almost nothing but rhetoric and trolling


don't be paranoid, like we don't have a battery of it to deal with everyday... I have no interest in trolling I am only making statements.

Every nation has it's flaws, America included.

I don't claim America to be better than anyone else.

Actually, I take that back. We are better than a few nations. The ones that allow the genital mutilation of women, the throwing of acid into girls faces because they want to learn to read or to do math and the nations that allow a father or brother to kill their daughter/sister because of some ignorant 'honor' nonsense.

We are better than those countries.

But on the whole, we are no better or no worse than anyone else, IMO.

I stopped reading here. Canada is a capitalist democracy. Unfortunately, for several decades now everything has been run by large corporate entities, to a lesser extent than America. Both America and Canada have become quite fascist, actually.

Another rampantly nationalistic American that militantly goes around proving how he has no idea what he is talking about.

"Why do they think we are stupid?
"



Seriously, you people are embarrassing my country. Just stop.

I would say the general consensus from my family in America is that they consider us allies, and no one they know thinks otherwise.. and in my opinion all you are doing is stoking anti-American sentiments rather than creating friendships.. however that is your choice.

I can easily pick out half dozen on the first page of this section...

it's all a matter of perspective I guess.

So ATS is a general sampling of the whole population of the UK and Canada? I don't think so you have a small segment of the Canadian and UK populations so you cannot make an inference from that.

so point proven of where all the rhetoric is coming from in the first place...

MOD's you can now close this thread or move it to the philosophy section.

I'm glad I don't fall into the typical stereotype that everyone seems to have of Americans. Since I've lived my whole life in the USA I can say with a pretty good degree of certainty that the stereotype exists for a reason. There is a large portion of the population that is ignorant and arrogant.

I've never been to Europe so I don't know what it is like but I have been to Canada enough times to know the people are pretty much the same as the US in a lot of ways. I don't hate anyone though.

We are and we aren't if you went to Toronto or Vancouver it doesn't count.If you go to any of the small towns or Ottawa a big city with a small town heart HUGE difference. Also Alberta is our texas so they don't really either. We have very similar thing but at the same time as a whole we are different. And if you live in various areas in canada you can see that

and with your lack of freedom of speech your trolling has to take on a super long winded approach complete with quotations and links... and all the grammar attacks you name it. You have obviously learned also how to insult and troll on a much higher level because of your lack of freedom so it makes a little more sense now why you cry foul.

I've been to Ottawa and I really enjoyed it there. Of course, this was in 1997 so I'm sure things have changed. I've been all around B.C. and I really like it. The people are, for the most part, friendly and engaging. I really felt at home. I live in a small town in Southern Oregon. It's a completely different world here than say, LA or NY.

Exactly and no Ottawa hasn't changed since 97, believe me... It hasn't changed in 19 years. We are still the same old small town we have always been.

I think the reason the USA is portrayed as being so vastly different is because proportionately, you have waaaay more major cities, with higher populations. We have Toronto, Hull, Ottawa, Quebec, Vancouver, PEI (its small enough to be a city) Montreal, Edmonton and a few others on the east coast and west coast.

Hate is a strong word.

I don't really like America but its not you, it is your government that thinks it has the right to police the world.

I am English but you are right our people have no rights so the UK is by no means better than the USA.

Also your troops are inept compared to our boys.

you are more than welcome to write a letter to our congressmen too if you think American tentacles are controlling your life and your governments.

Exactly. I stay away from major cities for a reason. The largest city I've ever lived in was Riverside, CA and I could only stand it for 6 months before I quit my job and moved. With all the crime, gangs and traffic, my hair was turning gray. Luckily, there are millions of square miles of land in the US that isn't part of a major city.

but why would most of them want to come here in the first place ? I mean the Canadians and British that are on the net stoking discontent ?

are you saying you hold some jealousy issues and still wanting to reserve the right to come here ?
