Response to Catherina (Reply #17)

49. How sad, because it's a snapshot of how the world sees us now, and most of it is true.

And its a pity all your much vaunted rights and unique democracy seem to have failed to protect you against the excesses of your own government, who seem to have decided to save the terrorists the trouble of ruining your freedoms by pre-emptively beating them to it, and from having one of the worst healthcare services in the developed world,


We could be such a shining light in the world. What happened? Was it all those right wing 'refugees' we took in after the dictators they and we supported were finally toppled and they had to flee the wrath of their victims? The nazis we rescued and brought over here, the right wing S. Americans, the right wing Cubans? I don't get it, something has gone very wrong because we really did have a great ideal to strive for, a road map that could have made us the envy of the world?
