It is not fascism to want other countries to stay out of our business. It is not fascism to want organizations with no authority in our borders to stay out of our affairs.
Don't you think this should work both ways?
Yes, I do. I think that the US should get out of the UN, and just flip the EU the bird when it says something about us. I couldn't care less what Germany or France thinks. What boggles my mind is the ingratitude of those countries. You would think that a country that can save their ass (or kick their ass, as the case may be) twice in 25 years can handle their own affairs, that is, unless you are European.
Their opinion is their own, and has no place in the US's day-to-day operations. You dont see us meddling in their affairs, do you? You dont see us raising hell when Chirac is up for re-election, do you? No, of course you dont. Because he is irrelevant, just like France.
This guy kills me. I think you missed GermanStar's point Skynyrd (or moparmike). You say that the rest of the world can kiss our ass, and to stay out of our business, but I think he was pointing out that shouldn't that mean we stay out of Iraq, Iran, N. Korea, China, Sudan, Syria, Cuba, etc, etc, etc, business? You don't want other nations giving us input on how to run our county, yet you anoint Bush as Caesar?
