Poll question: What is a more appropriate name for the United States at this time?
OK everybody, pick one you like that more accurately reflects the current government.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. America, Inc.
We like to think we are the only "Americans". Usurping that name for us and only us is what many people seem to like to do.

11. That could work too.
The acronym would be: NACRUS. Sounds like the name of an alien lizard species or planet.

7. Corporate Nations of America
Edited on Tue Oct-04-05 02:37 AM by firefox
We have corporations that have incomes greater than countries. Where nations existed because of geography, corporate nations will exist because of law, which comes about by money. The trade agreements are to tear down the geographical barriers to capital and reduce the power of governments as dictated by those agreements.

We should start to think of the large corporations as nations, because the way it is going they will be more powerful than the geographical nations of present. It is they that control the most deadly military machine on the planet.

12. I gotta say, this is a really stupid poll.
You should NOT rename OUR country after THEIR shitty cronyism. The country was here first and our country will still be here long after these asshats have crawled back under their rocks. Don't disparage my country because it's been commandeered by crooks.
