Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Fionn, we are so fed up with you Europeans and your holier-than-thou worldliness. So Americans don't travel abroad as often as often as Brits. How much does it cost to take a boat to France from England? Compare this to how much it costs to fly to a country where you need a passport (we don't need one for Canada or Mexico) from, say, Kansas.

So Newzilders have more passports. Do they use them to go abroad? Maybe that's their national identification system.

Besides, as somebody else pointed out, this is a HUGE country. If we want to see deserts, ocean, forests, geologically interesting valleys, towering mountains, quaint villages, 1000-year-old dwellings, even older ruins, WHATEVER, there is no need to ever leave the USA, let alone North America. For many people in the USA, visiting Europe or the Far East is a lifelong dream, which they must save up for for years and years. It takes us 10+ hours and hundreds of dollars to fly to London. You can hop on a boat-train and be in Paris in a couple of hours. Small wonder y'all have more passports than we do.

If you must feel yourself superior to us, find something that really shows it, not this phoney passport comparison thing.

Better yet, find another way to feel better about yourself than putting others down. Getting a life is an admirable method, I'm told.
