    I didn't vote because my view lies somewhere between the first and second choices.

    We’ve done some good, we’ve done some bad. I think that at one point we really were a beacon for freedom and liberty. At one time, we really were the shinning city on the hill. I don’t think that to be the case anymore. The Republocrats have really had a good go at our liberty and our government has become increasingly hostile and aggressive in the use of its force against its People.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Dangit, now I wish I didn't vote .
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    My answer lies between the first and third choices, which (funnily enough) is not the second option.

    The United States is an evil empire, there's no doubt about that. I just believe that we're the most benevolent evil empire in human history.

    The USA. "What's good for business is good for the Country." "War is good for business!" Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Cuba, Nicaragua, San Salvador, Panama, Libya, Yemen, just to mention a few, and a $700 billion military budget in an impoverished Nation. The Nation's interest is war and energy and wars run on energy. Symbiosis. We allow Corporations to grow big enough that they can buy and sell our Legislators and they do, and our Media, the "Mighty Wurlitzer" paints a cozy picture that doesn't resemble reality. Time to wake up. The people of the USA are great but Corporations do not live and breathe and are running the show.

    Given that I have to compare the U.S. with other countries, it's Option 1.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    All three.
    When we set our minds......
    Of course, we have had our problems, and I see no point in Ostrich-behavior.
    Option two is the closest to the truth,IMO.
