Thread: Why We Are a Republic, Not a Democracy

  1. #41
    Visiting the USA

    The irony is that I spend so much time in the USA (3 times a year at least) because I love it so much, and the people.

    But I could never live there, because of the extreme Nationalism and the ultra-religious nature of your nation.

    But I do like to visit. I hope I do not cause offence.

    All the best,
    Rob


    I'm thinking under the right circumstances you could live happily just about anywhere in the USA. I once lived a whole year in Kansas. Wasn't so bad. When I'd get a day off I'd drive over to Joplin and gaze at a tree. Now if I had to live in England I think it would be Midsomer. Such lovely murders there.

    It was not, and is not my intention to be a hypocirte, so my apologies if you are offended.

    I'll bow out of this discussion.

    Ahhh...no one is offended. I'm not.

    We Yanks and you Brits have been going on about stuff like this for ages. I've got a couple Brit friends...they just agree with me when I say things like "America's great" and we get along wonderfully.
