*Remember*Not every American is a fucking asshole, just the ones that type shit into urbandictionary.com and youtube.com. Almost everyone in the U.S.A is friendly and not a prick.
People of the U.S.A dont think that they are the best in the world. But i would have to say our human rights are.
I love other countries e.g. U.K
ps. president bush was an asshole
The United States government currently appears to be the most corrupt entity on the planet earth, sending thier brave and heroic soldiers to fight wars with the sole purpose of furthering individual ends. Your fanatical presidnet Mr G.W Bush, lacks the ability to engage in a initellignet conversation, nevermind oversee the actions of the worlds most powerful military arsenal.
Their are severe ethnic divisions in the United States, despite the claim that the U.S. is the leader of the "free" world. Plus, anybody now wishing to travel to the U.S. will have all their personal details checked and stored at the whim of the CIA. This reflects the United States over-inflated self image, the U.S is not the centre of the universe.
This fact is reflected in history quite clearly. The United States government will engage in war in Iraq & Afghanistan, but will let the people of Darfur & Burma suffer extreme human rights abuses (not enough oil there you see). How many Americans know that during world war 2, there was only 1 country at war with Nazi Germany from the begining of the war? While Britain was bombed daily by the Germans, the American government refused to get invloved militarily. It was only when American intrests were attacked (Pearl Harbour) that the U.S government acted. Brtian was the only country to fight from day 1 - but you wont see that reflected anywhere in Hollywood. It seems that the U.S. government selfishly picks its battles...
Anyway, the point is that the average decent American citizen gets treated like crap no matter where they go in the world. After visiting Mexico for example, the locals assumed that I must be American, and treated me with caution. Once they discovered I was British, it was a different story.
America has great people, a fantastic environment, patriotism that I admire, many opportunities, but ultimatly a government that stinks. Also whatever your government does, the British government does blindly. So next time your voting in our Prime minister, pick one with a backbane please!!
And for the record, we may have had slaves, but Britian had zoos with africans in it.
