Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Fionn, I believe it is also Austria that produced and enthusiastically endorsed Jerg Heider (sp?). I don't think Austria is necessarily the best example to be using of what other countries should aspire to.

I find that a lot of people who have never been to the U.S. cannot even begin to comprehend how big this country is. I don't know if you've ever been here or not, but the fact is that for a lot of us, travel overseas is not an option for financial reasons. We don't need a passport for Canada or Mexico.

This is a very big country. So for most of us, a passport is irrelevant. If you've not been over here yet, come on over and check it out yourself.
