Thoughts of a Young American

Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?

- My Personal Observation
Wow, all of you make me feel really low. Some of you say that America is terrible and others say that it's the American government that is so terrible but most of yall agree that Americans aren't terrible at all. Well, now I'm confused. You see, Americans make what America is, so even though you may not realize it, you're saying Americans are terrible when you say America is terrible.

-Our Culture to Me
Though some of the things you're saying is right, I believe that America is more than just "power and money". America is very diffucult to explain. We don't have one unique culture but alot of them, sort of meshed together. Which, probably makes it seem that like we don't have a culture at all. But, you probably don't get it because you're not American.

-What I Think Should Happen
America and Europe should come together. America should be less of a bully and Europe should be a little more of one. America should get their heads out of the sand and realize the truth and Europe should stand up and fight. Both should get over eachothers imperfectations (like America's obesity problem) because there are bigger things at stake than proving which country is better.

-My Overall Opinion
Basically, America can't do it alone and Europe can't do it without America. So, we need to find a common ground (if possible) and nip this thing in the butt!
