After 31 years in the United States, I find myself more American than I ever expected to be, yet not so American in many ways.
God, this makes me truly embarrassed to live here, let alone be a citizen. It reminds me of the TV coverage just after 9/11 when someone on CNN referred to the USA as "the most democratic country on the planet". What on earth do they think goes on in most countries?
I assumed it was ironic humour, but I'm still a bit optimistic on that front.
That has got to be a threat. Most definitely. Even some of us Americans find it scary and embarrassing. Oh, and Expatmum is right. I live is Switzerland. It's a direct democracy. Does it get any more democratic? isn't that more democratice than a representative system like the US? One would think.I landed here from Viewfromthehill's Blog by the way.
I think it is hilarious
i'm cringeing and giggling in equal measure!Pigx
