It's interesting to me how aware the rest of the world is about world politics compared to the United States. I guess it's a result of knowing that
the US is a bad enemy to have, so it's important to know if the president we have, is likely to cause problems for them. I don't say that because I
think we are better than any other country, Our Constitution is Awesome, but people are people and being born on one area of dirt doesn't make you
better than anyone else.
There are roughly 190 countries in the world, depending on who you talk to, but apart from areas that are so poor that they have no internet access,
I actually find most people outside the United States, are better informed than people in the United States. Granted, this belief is from my limited
experience. I've been to only about 9 countries so far, but when I talk to locals in a lot of countries, especially south Asia, they have at least a
general knowledge of what is current in America.
I can go to Richmond Virginia, tomorrow, and find people that have never heard of Ron Paul, or don't even know who Mitt Romney is. Much less know
anything about any other country. It's Strange to me, Because I would like to believe we do not censor information too much, but I have to look at
The other side of the coin, is that people here just don't care. Their everyday lives are ok, why stir the pot?
