  •  How do you say, "Wow" in British? (none)
    Damn. Devastating. Why does he hate America?

    If McCain had replied to Bush this way at that debate instead of, "that really hurts", this would be a very different world.

    •  America is a disaster (none)
      Mccain would have us at war with china by now. He's just as bad as bush when it comes to war. He's a phony.

      Why shouldn't he hate America. It's the right thing to feel for a nation that longs to be fascist and is well on it's way.

      This is a horrible nation. A nation killer. Sooner we recognize this the better our chances. Were not going to get rid of Bush by talking about how great America is. It's an awful country. The people, the army and the government are all awful.

      •  Then may i suggest (none)
        you get the Fuck out?

        Read a little history of the country of your choice. Human beings are human bengs regardless of nation. And no government on earth over a decade old hasnt done some horrendous things.

        •  Ameruca deserves to be slammed (none)
          Human beings are human beings regardless of nation. And no government on earth over a decade old hasnt done some horrendous things.

          Yes, and they eventually get bombed by the people they pissed off, like the Germans, the Japanese, the French, the Russians, Hell, even the Iraqis.

          And sadly a lot of good, decent minded people suffer for the crimes of their leaders.

          •  No problem with slamming (none)
            the american government.

            Heres the problem
            The people, the army and the government are all awful.

            So he hates the american people. I suggest he find a people he doesnt hate to live among. Tell me do you think people would take it quite as kindly if he said the following?

            I hate Israel. The people, the army and the government are all awful.
            I hate palestein. The people, the army and the government are all awful.
            I hate mexico. The people, the army and the government are all awful.

            I think not

            •  America no good (none)
              The American people are responsible for what the government does. This should occur to you. The Government represents the people. If the people don't like it, they have a revolution or they get voted out of office or they get protested out of office. Nothing like that is on the horizon. I feel absolutely ashamed of this country and that I live in it.

              Better countries: Norway, Sweden, Holland Denmark, Belgium all have higher standar of living and are much more civil ,

              Ecuador... the people get rid of governments they don't like all the time.

              I haven' the time to go on.

              •  The countries you're putting up (none)
                as "sainted" have some pretty dark skeletons of their own.

                Nationalism is a lot like racism. Loving or hating a particular people based on whatever particular belief. People are people. Wherever you go. Whatever system they live under. Its' just that most americans, including you, are used to a certain standard and way of living. And cannot truely fathom living some other way. By your standard i would assume all southern african nations are evil for not taking care of their people.. that all south americans are evil for either electing drug mafioso to office, accepting and supporting Nazi's in their midst etc etc.. that all middle eastern peoples are evil for the conflicts there.....

                Standards are dangerous things and few are willing to apply them universally.

        •  America bad (none)
          Oh Ok, then.

          Gee tha'ts Bush rationale. Tell that to the Irauis, the Vietnamese, the Guatemalan, The El salvadorans, the Chileans, the Afro Americans who were slaves for 300 years, the Iranians who had their elected government overthrown by the US and again in June they say,

      •  nice to see someone who calls it like it is.. (none)
        cos the best way to prevent America from turning into a fascist state is to admit that America is turning into a fascist state.

        The definition of an idiot is someone who's always absolutely sure that they are right.

      •  your comment sucks (none)
        This is a horrible nation. A nation killer. Sooner we recognize this the better our chances.

        That's not just wrong as a matter of fact.  It's also wrong politically.  How the f*** will liberal's chances improve by saying something stupid shit like that?  Frankly, I think that's a right wing agent provocateur type troll comment.  J'accuse.
