Canada is LUCKY that they don't have the same breed of Filthy Repulikkkan KKKHristianz that we're stuck with.
Don't like the US then move on up to Canada. No one will stop you.

Ok here is the deal: Do you think that if a vote takes place in the Middle East that the US must have a say in it and of course impose limits of its own choosing rather than the local populace?
Case in point is what's going on with the Paletsitian elections. The US house passed a resolution las t Firday that specifically will stop assistance to the Palestinians if Hamas wins the elections. So I am guessing if the people of Palestine choose Hamas then they must also accept that US assistance will be out and that will give them card blanche to move forward with their own agenda without being bribed by the US. I think it's a good thing that the US meddled again in international affairs under AIPAC's pressure...
Do you think the US has the RIGHT to choose canditates that suits here outside its borders? I mean it has done well with dictators, but no real track record with democratic countries that took their own initiative to be so...

At this point I think that the Palestinians should do whatever they want and feel is right for them to gain peace with Israel not to lick the US's boots... Maybe this is a wake up call, and they should actually refuse US help to send them a message what democracy is all about. Yes even if it means starving...
Certainly any country should be free to pick whomever they want to lead them. Just as the US free to pick our leaders and how we choose to spend our foreign aid dollars.

The palestinians should chose whatever leaders they think best represent them and their needs.

The US should respond to the elections in whatever manner they feel best represents their needs.

That's cool so don't come back saying we want to win the hearts and minds of those heathens…
I personally don’t support your system of bribery, so please keep your money and spend it on your needy. Nation building is not your forte….
