    Living in Taiwan...

    Article 1 - Taiwan does a pretty good job here. Most of the problems come from a small number, usually elderly, people who are pretty closed minded.
    Article 2 - Taiwanese have political rights. The problem her efrom a taiwan standpoint is not from our government, but from the UN and its specialized agencies as they have time and again discriminated against Taiwanese.
    Article 3 - Taiwan does very well here
    Article 4 - The only problem here is that Taiwan is a destination country in human trafficking and while it is legally prohibited, in many cases the government looks the other way.
    Article 5 - Taiwan is fine here

    Over all grade = B

    The Australian accent means we lose all dignity, so we fail on that one.

    Yeah, we have that one on the bag. (have for the past 50 years)
    Article 3.
    • Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
    My person doesn't feel very secure considering I'm not allowed to carry any sort of defence except my fists (and the government may regulate them) so no.
    Article 4.
    • No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
    Article 5.

    • No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
    I've been a slave, but that was just in the bedroom, so I guess it doesn't count. However, having to listen to our PM speak clearly comes under cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, so we fail that too.

    So follow me into the desert

    And all the little pigs have God

    I can't imagine any way to justify giving America an "A".

    I'd give America a C, B- at best.

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    Could you be specific as to why? Personally I don't see why you would NOT give America an A, or at least a B.

    You support Gaddafi remaining in power. Explain that vote.

    Gay rights at the least push it down to a B in my opinion, not to mention the use of "strenuous" torture in extremely very cases, but it has happened.
