in response to reader comment: Hating America

Submitted by sozz (United Kingdom), Jan 5, 2009 at 04:56

America has a history of bent elections, people are brainwashed into patriotism at an early age, very few trade unions, your government members have been more interested in lining their own pockets and those of it's rich friends, uses the media to brainwash the population to support whatever it want's to do, gun crime is blamed on people, not the fact that you can get a gun at your local store or the constant paranoia which is built by your government through your media. Then they think, just because the USA has more arms than everyone else that it should decide what's right for other nations, i.e. that doesn't mean it has the wisdom to get involved, look at it's history, dropping 2 atom bombs, that can never be justified, only by those who are blindly patriotic. USA has been a merc for hire, hopefully Obama will turn things around!
