I like Americans a lot, though their government leaves something to be desired. Same as ours.

You've said pretty much everything I was going to say. The problem isnt America, because thats made up of Americans who I;ve always found to be good hearted people, if a bit brash and naive by UK standards. The problem is 'Politicians' and its a world wide problem- a new race of people whose sole motivation is power and wealth, and who are prepared to do secret deals with big companies and start illegal wars to get more of it.
The only difference between America and say Zimbabwe, is that in America you can still criticise the government without your testicles being connected to a car battery, so people do-but really, its the government they are criticising, not the Country.
I'd never criticise the UK (where I live) or USA (where my brother lives)-Politicians might have killed our reputation, but they havent killed our spirit.

Well that was exillerating, being called ignorant a bitch (where were u MODS on this one?) a troll, more ignorance followed by hypocrite, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. What started as a little rant, that was developing very nicely as I was litterally being educated by some very productive responses turned out to be a bash fest reading after being a responsible father for a weekend and not signing on to this site (Actually i'm not active during any weekend). I'm very amazed by many of the responses and almost sickened at the same time. So props to the responders who actually had information to actively move this thread along I will address those shortly. And Cry me a river negative nancy's, congratulations you completed NOTHING by your posts. Waste of time and Energy.
I guess I'm not the only hypocrite in the house now am I?
As even my insite to the original post is apt to change upon further evaluation, most members just wanted to throw there 2 sense in without reading the threads leading up to my last post on page 3. For that I commend your hypocracy and lack of intelligence for not taking the time to see how this thread was evolving.
To catch up to everyone thoughts or dislikes about my thread, please give me some time so I can better antiquate a response and hopefully move this thread along.
Slowly we watch the degradation of a civilization
The rise and fall of all we are
Stands before us
This place is evil
Is there an answer?
This world is vile
We are the answer
