Although I`m Aussie and also someone who holds ATS and its members (vast majority American) moderates/Adim in overall high regard I`ll say a little on
what I think and what I`ve seen and heard.

Do americans have a low view of Australians in specific regards to conspiracy issues.
As a whole and in general if its not relevant (a conspiracy) to Americans specifically or could affect them then its a non issue.
Do you view Australia as an insignificant backwater to far from where the moving and shaking of global finance and world power resides.
Yes they do in general and we are almost insignificant in power in comparison in the world, so I don`t see why they should see it otherwise.
Over the years I mainly just read and the amount of times an American has called Aussies gutless cowards for giving up our rights in regard to guns
and that we are apart of the NWO because we did and that we are at the ass end of the world (meant in a derogatory fashion) etc after awhile has
gotten my goat, many think that we owe them all our lives for eternity due to WW11 anyway regardless of how or what their country does.
I`ve been involved with quite a few heated discussions where Americans have called us all just a bunch of racists, one thread was triggered by their
own main stream media saying we were due to a cricket KFC Ad and fried chicken, which means something totally different over here than there.
I was vocal and supported one of their soldiers not long after 9-11 after he refused to go and fight in Iraq, he signed up because of the event on
9-11 and fought to bring those to justice who were supposedly in Afghanistan only to be told later to also go to Iraq, some Americans dripped venom
and many were calling for this guys head, literally. While saying the same to myself even though our country gave our support and our soldiers lives
and our tax payers money based on a pile of crap to only further and follow their agenda. Just after our country gave our support one American flew an
Aussie flag next to an American flag out the front of his house and the Authorities told him to take it down and due to many complaints.
I hate seeing and hearing so many senseless deaths in America and else where and don`t want Australia to become like America in this regard and in
others which is why I`m not pro gun, that makes me straight up an enemy in the eye`s of most Americans here on ATS.
I have heard many americans claim Australia is not really country with an independent identity as it is tied to the british crown and has never become
a republic thus forged its own identity
Yeah that does come up a lot, your average Aussie most differently doesn't` see it that way even if it is technically true. So its going to come
across as insulting to many of us.
Finally generally speaking do any of you give # what Australians think perhaps it is just me many seem to ignore me here so just curious. Also do you
dislike left wing Aussies more than other Aussies.
I know I`m interested in other peoples cultures and how they live, I can`t speak for anyone else and I like to think other people around the world
think likewise but everyone's different.
Toward yourself? personally I don`t understand much of it when your talking about the left wing, right drum stick whatever, I can`t stand politics as
it is and this two party parade farce. That's kinda why imo they call it political madness and Aussie politic discussions should be thrown in that
forum with the Americans, its the same thing.
When it gets too much we should have an Aussie pride parade and everyone has to turn up in stubby shorts blue tank top and thongs(foot wear Americans,
foot wear) except for Taswegians they can wear Ugg Boots (but not the brand an American company stole) its bloody nippy down there.
