    It's fine to be anti-European, anti-American, anti-whatever, as long as you've got real reasons. Albert appears to just hate indiscriminatorily, on weak reasons that fall flat when examined.

    You feed the Troll because he is so far outside your experience that you are curious.

    Isn't a weak reason a real reason... just weaker reason than a stronger reason?

    I find myself to be anti-anti for no reason what so ever...

    Nope. It's a different form of prejudice than racism. Nobody in America will defend stupid Britain or stupid France. Nobody here likes you folks. How's that for clarity?

    I jump at the chance to get in the way... it is what I do. I have it the best, as an American living in NZ.

    There is a reason. It's called decadence. Your entire branch of western civilization is rotten, and threatens to contaminate the other branch of Western Civilization. Ideas that arise within the European left make their way to America. America is already infected with European social democracy.

    Your country and its continent are a bad influence. Fortunately, your influence is receding as Europe declines.

    And Gillard isn't British-born??? Australia does have a British head of state, so why not a British head of government.

    The U.S. has a presidential system of government rather than parliamentary. Typically, the head of government in such a system (who is also usually head of state, though in some countries, it is kind of muddled) has more power than the head of government in a parliamentary system...
