RE: THE U.S. AS IT SHOULD BE
Perhaps, MRTIKKET, as collateral for your suggestions, every one of the scores of sovereign nations which Uncle Sam has - for no good reason other than power/control/economics - invaded, and in whose internal politics he has meddled to suit his own ends, should repatriate all US-originated residents/visitors to the US. [:(]
Do you realise that the US has initiated, or unnecessarily escalated, over 200 wars in/on other nations since World War 2?
Do you know just how many other nations' governments Uncle Sam has (had) deposed just to suit his own selfish ends? It's positively obscene.
I'm afraid you just don't have any moral high ground to shout your bigotry from, MrTikket. [xx(]
Perhaps you ought to read Gore Vidal's pamphlet (small book, that is) titled "Why are we so hated?". Or even some Noam Chomsky. Both are enlightened American citizens who've given these matters a lot of thought. If you were to remove your blinkers long enough to read them, you might even learn something.
But bigots rarely manage that.
Here in Oz we're having a difficult time convincing our Prime Miniature (a short, balding man who just happens to be our government leader - unfortunately) that Oz is not the 51st state of the Union and that he ought to desist from licking GWB's R-sole.
We started out - rather like America - as a colony of Britain. Having shaken off that yoke some time ago, we have no wish to be recolonised by anyone - no matter how rich and powerful they might be. Now we have GWB telling Australians to vote little R-slicking Johnny Howard (our Prime Miniature) back into power at our forthcoming federal erection (sorry, election).
Imperialists, go home! [xx(]
