Frank, The United States does not rule over the world - perhaps at one point when the USD was quite strong you might have had a chance, but right now,
the Economy is going down the drain. The United States has quite a lovely deficit on their Balance Sheet... that doesn't show "ruling" to me, that
shows "we picked a real winner of a President/thanks for rigging the elections Mister Bush".
For the record, one country that you REALLY have by the hair, is Canada. The US closes their boarders to trade with us if we # off the wrong person,
which is why Harper was a great Leader while Mister Bush was in power. "Touch your toes Mister Harper, or we're going to stop buying your softwood
lumber and your beef."
I want to know why we have to rule over the world. Is it fate? Is it just destiny that we just so happen to be the decider in the world?
Whoever has the most money makes the rules, and writes the History Books... Now, I personally believe that there is a group of people who make all the
decisions, and I don't believe any of them reside in the USA.
We nearly gave up our job as the leader to Russia and China during the Bush years but there is hope with the new administration.
Job as the Leader? You mean, there has to be one? Each SEPARATE Country can't be left to run themselves? In my opinion the United States believes
they have more weight to throw around then they actually do.
But I ask, why must all the burden for the world's problems be placed on us?
It's not for Compassion, it's not for Caring, and its certainly NOT for consideration for fellow man. It's for a great big Green word that starts
with an M -- MONEY. In my opinion the war in Iraq was unsubstantiated and for one thing... Oil = Money. Whoever gains control over the worlds
resources will have EVERYONE at their mercy... I think thats what was going on behind the motivation for the War in Iraq.
It's too much work to rule the world.
Is it now? Have you got experience in this department? Perhaps you should attend one of the NWO secret meetings and let them in on your information -
they might like to hear that their plan for One World Government and Control won't work... Oh right, unless of course they instate some sort of
policy for "Population Control" - Aids and Cancer clearly aren't doing their job in that department. Whats next, I wonder?
the rest of you really need to be less dependent on us.
We share a LARGE border with you - I don't think we really have a choice - the United States is one of our MAJOR trading partners. How the heck are
we supposed to be less dependant?
Our Military has virtually no funding compared to yours. In the event of a War between the United States and Canada - its no doubt in my mind that we
would lose. We simply don't have the manpower, and we certainly do not push Patriotism as strongly as the United States does.
We're just igloo living, beer drinking, hockey watching Canadians, easy going, and don't like to start trouble - Thanks Harper, you're doing a
Could the idea of Democracy be so appealing to so many people, or, could it be that our leaders are forcing their vision all across the world,
making them bow to our will?
I believe your leaders are puppets - pushing someone elses' agenda. Plain and Simple, Cut & Dried - you don't rule the world. I think the US wants
to, but right now - they can't. I just dare China to lose faith in the American Dollar - don't they own like a TON of your guys' T-Bills? Now, I
didn't do all that great in my Economics Class, but I'm pretty sure, that wouldn't help your current Economic situation at all.
Just my thoughts on the issue...
