I'm serious. Think about that for a moment...
The US is less than 250 years old. The world got along fine before then did it not?

Leeeeets see - I would raise my kids, work long hours and would finally die on my deathbed surrounded by my children, grandchildren and mourning worldleaders.
No difference to this world.
Nah, where would be the difference? Freedom? Do you really dare to say that you defend that value? Nope, you are trying to bring it down, tying all your people with fear and near-unbelievable-stupid laws etc.
In fact, as long as these stupid checks on your airports are running I will not even think about visiting your fine country. Get rid of that crap! It detected zilch, compared to the vast amount of trouble it brings to every tourist.

but back to the topic in hand, the reason people hate the USA generally is like they hate that guy that keeps coming upto them in the street saying how good everything is in a loud voice wearing bright clothes and generally annoying the tits of you when all you want to do is get to the shop and back in peace and quiet

Jealousy and envy are often masked in anger. Haters abound!! All they're doing is demonstrating their own ignorance.
Some like to talk about how many deaths America is responsible for but they gloss over the fact that the majority of those deaths were a result of defending them from their enemies.
Nope, you don't blow each other up, just all the other countries in the world

Well at least we don't run around blowing each other up. Why do you think we stay here in America?
We like to have fun, and you guys are jealous. Most of the world must pray 12 times a day, and all they think about is religion. We like to enjoy the world, don't let the politicians of the world make you think American's don't support a clean Earth. Go to any ocean front on American soil-it is full of people handing out pamphlets on how to help preserve the Earth. Peta-American (I know bad choice), it seems that I watch commercials on t.v. about all the poverty in the world, and who helps? Does your country help? Has your country cleaned up Africa? These nations ask for our help, and the U.S. is the only one's brave enough to stand up. So we may be arrogant, but with reason. The world is crazy except for us.

Yes, it is indeed a swirly hot mess down here isn't it?
America loves Canada, but our govt always decides to divide American people and keep them in fear to keep them in line....
I find it kind of disturbing how people can hate America for everything that it stands for....but they use the internet and youtube and Google..

Many people in this world are scared, angry, and have this unknown need to create a scapegoat. These same people that hate America, I am certain you will find many other things that they "hate" for all the most frivolous reasons when it comes to the bottom line.
The systems herein governing developed and industrialized societies are out of whack, and the "help myself, no one else" mentality is what is screwing us over on all levels of society.edit on 16-1-2012 by xacto because: (no reason given)

The UK and Russians are pretty much the same... they go along with their government even though they've been lied to about so many things..like the 7/7 bombings in London? many of those Brits actually said on camera
"I'd give up freedom for liberty any day, but we need to be safe"
I am an American and i am a freedom fighter and getting the truth out there just like Alex Jones and many other people who expose the criminal governments...
One person actually said that i don't even know anything about the UK....oh as if he knows anything about America...
I know London has a lot of old buildings and kind of looks like Ireland :-D, but New York has a lot of new structures and looks like Tokyoedit on 16-1-2012 by CrazyRaccoon because: (no reason given)
