Thread Name: american politics is a joke
Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Fionn, when you castigate "Americans" as a group, you include all of us. As a group, we may be one of the richest countries on earth.

However, there are plenty of us who are far from rich. In fact, a socially aware person will know that a lot of us live in poverty. It's not the fault of those of us who don't have access to "American riches" that things are shared out unfairly, any more than it is your fault.

Don't you think it's enough that we have to live with this unfairness without having to listen to people from other countries castigating all of us regardless of who we are, and what we are like as individuals?

How about taking the time to get to know some of us individually before making your judgements about us?
