If america is treating its people like cattle then, by golly, I want to be a cow.
At least it's the best form of treatment on the planet. Name another country with our GDP?
That GDP direclty translates to quality of life and regional stability.
I know that doesn't make everything we do right, but SOMEBODY has to do it.
You do realize that someone has to take the lead, right? That's what the US is doing.
It's a natural consequence of our GDP and history. We're the goto guys.
And I'm grateful that the leading country is one that upholds freedom and human rights.
Russia and China have a human rights record that prohibits them from ever leading.
Well, ok, they could lead if the world sunk that low and accepted them.
We might sometimes be overly christian or arrogant, but we're the best out there. What other nation has our power and discipline and values and endurance and respect? Nobody.edit on 18-12-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)
