    your old world thinking. Think Homestead Act. Think unconditional surrender then rebuilding after a war by Marshall plan vs armistice and reparations. Think democracy. Think dollar is world's currency. Now after some reflection, bow down to american exceptionalism and the concept our president Obama announces wherever and whenever he can, we are The Greatest Nation on Earth.

    “Well, when the president does it, that means it is not illegal.” Richard Nixon, 1977.

      The Marshall Plan was a tool to spread capitalism and enrich American corporations. Democracy was supported only in so far as the previous two factors were accomplished.

      The dollar is the world's currency due to two factors, WWII and oil resources.

      we are The Greatest Nation on Earth.
      Utter tripe
