Thank you Oðin I’m not American

I’m so grateful for not being a U.S. citizen right now. I don’t mean to pick down on America, but I’m happy for not being forced to choose for this upcoming election. I mean I’d probably vote Republican – but gee, what a bunch on idiots and hicks that is. I would refuse (!) to vote on the sc. “liberals” in the Democratic Party because I hate the left-wing truly, madly, and deeply, even though they would probably be reckoned as the most right-wing party in my own country. It is their supporters I can’t stand mostly. Obama seems like a nice guy but the environmentalists, the hippies, the socialists, and the doomsday- pop- left-wingers who support him are just too much. I’d like to vote for the Libertarian Party, but that would be as if I would vote for the Green Party or the NeoNazis in Sweden. Not for their opinion but due to it would be a vote for nothing. America has a two-party system, which can be both good and bad, and a vote for the third party would only be considered as a protest vote and I would throw away my democratic voice for “change”.

What irritates me the most with American politics is that the right-wing always want to control the public and interfere with people’s lives, almost just as much as the “liberals” do. Take Palin for instance. She’s a completely insane woman. She’s a creationist (meaning that she believes that God created mankind with hocus pocus in 7 days out of nothing) and she is pro censorship for almost everything. Say goodbye to all your porn, America. What’s worse is that she’s against abortion EVEN THOUGH the girl has been raped.

As I said before, the right-wing in America relies too much on hicks and superstitious religious idiots who believes that the world is 7000 years old. It is a little bit scary actually that a party like THAT is the best alternative.

It just got to suck to be an American …

    I am glad you are not an American too. If you are this prejedice to American people and christianity, you do not need to be a citizen. We take pride in the differences that are here, and it sounds like you expect everyone to think the same as you, which makes me not beleive your claim that you would follow the republican ticket. I think that is a lie. But, “THANK GOD!” you will not be voting. GO Home and make this counrty a little better place.

    Connie: haha, I would, but my country is even deeper down in the hot sauce than your own. I love the States but I simply fail to understand your politics. Here you have a country which was founded on the most splendid philosophy the world ever seen, and then you completely destroy it with a lot of religious mambo jambo. Trust me, I WOULD follow the Republican ticket, MAYBE not if the Libertarians would prove themselves to have a sincere chance at least. I would have loved the Republican Party under Ron Paul. I like McCain since he’s intelligent enough not to mix his religious believes into his political ditto.
    You have the chance for change. The change is not spelled Obama – it is spelled constitution. I think America has to find its roots again.

    Second, I like diversity – especially in opinions and beliefs. I have nothing against Christians and their faith if they keep it for themselves, as it was meant to be. I’d never like everyone to think like me, but I would like more people to stop hindering other people to believe and to force them to think in a certain way. I’d never do that. Palin would however, and so would Obama …

    Sincerely yours
