    No offense but I have visited Mersin and Istanbul Turkey and they are 2 places I would not want to live...Out of the 60 or so countries I have visited Turkey is right near the top of the list where I would not want to live, right behind Port of Prince Haiti which is number 1.

    Re: Which best describes your view of the United States?

    I would vote for #1 and and a little bit of #2

    I'd say yes, it is one of the greatest countries in the world , no doubt.

    but then ... Australia is another great country too, so there are a few great countries out there not just one

    I would have to say #2. What people forget is Europeans took this country from it's original inhabitants. This country was conquered not settled. Having said that I don't think there is a country in existence that has it's original inhabitants, land changes hands over time, to the victor goes the spoils. It is a form of Darwinism in a way, the strong survive the weak get pushed aside.

    I have been to several countries including Australia several times, however, the US is my home and will always be.

    I opt for #1 and #2. I was afforded many opportunities by living in the US that I do not beleive I would have been given in another country.

    What the world are you talking about?
    Do you actually have a point?
    What, sir,are you implying?
    Since the quote of mine you referenced is refering to my parents,I really hope you are not refering to them as "losers and freeloaders"?

    Very true. Though I have seen an alternate opinion which I think has some merit as well....

    If we are to assume that that the Civil War is the turning point of American history to date, and that the Battle of Gettysburg is the turning point of the Civil war, and that Picketts Charge is the turning point of the Battle of Gettysburg; then is not General R.E. Lee's decision to engage in such an assault the turning point in American history to date?
