    Do not pretend otherwise.

    I do this to people also, if I think they are stupid assholes I rather tell them directly in their face than talk behind their backs like most people(I never do that). Guess that just makes me an honest asshole. So be it.
    I see, so you're telling us that you have a unique stranglehold on the truth about Americans because you're one of those tough guys who call another person a name while standing in front of them. Color me underwhelmed.

    Everything that I am saying is valid concerns..
    But you just said you were speaking the "truth." Now it's merely stating a "concern."

    Equivocate, much?

    I never just say negative stuff about the US just because its negative, or just because I want to say negative stuff about the US.
    This is a political forum, you should learn to handle the reality, even if its negative.
    But you have not established that this "reality" exists?

    You've simply appealed to it as though it does exist to ask a rhetorical question that amounts to nothing more than calling Americans slaves to victimhood.

    So you fabricate an alleged popular American attitude to..."bash America[ns]." Got it, I guess.

    Pete is only a slight step above Maxitard.
    I have not seen you have any political opinions what so ever. Perhaps a lack of understanding leads to a lack of real political involvement and care?

    Pete debates very intelligently, he just have different political opinions than you, same with me. I never said you were a tard, I respect ANY of your opinions, even if I do not agree. You can criticize Europe all you want, and I will still respect it as differ in opinion.. Guess that just makes me a bigger and better man than you..

    Well, yes. You "initiated this as a criticism towards someone" the "someone" being "Americans." If it was not intended to be a criticism of Americans for pulling the victim card, well, I am baffled...

    Oh yeah, that's right...you were just citing a "concern."

    Do you have a habit of lying to yourself?

    Its just because you have no comprehension for my stands, you simply do not understand them perhaps?
    I could easily say that you have no understanding of politics, economics, government and media just because I do not agree with you, but yet I keep it respectful and just try to say and debate in a nice way why I do not agree with you.. Guess I am just the bigger better man than you also.

    Not really. It just means you have a very skewed perception of yourself compared to the feedback you are getting here.

    If you actually saw things and had empathy for other perspectives than your own, you would certainly understand that both pete and me have valid points.. But I guess you dont listen to stuff that do not conform with your opinions. That makes you a what?

    Yeah, because I am European and most of you are Americans? Perhaps you could learn something?
    Just because 20 people disagree with me doesnt mean I am wrong.. Nor does it mean a majority in a society is right either.

    It goes so much deeper than that.
