I'm American, I'm not happy about it either. No one I know thinks that way or wants us to behave that way.

We have two main problems in America: our education system sucks balls but we still let those people vote (way more than enough people to swing elections). And the other problem is that our "elected" representatives are career politicians who have become an uncontrollable Nobility of sorts. You think our government actually listens to us? LOL.

The most frustrating and depressing part is that we're just now getting started at this Soviet-style communist repression stuff. Judging by the other countries that have endured it, we get to look forward to another 30-50 years of things getting worse until enough people get enough pissed off for the system to get un-fucked. By then "told ya so" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
