I live not only in the U.S. but in this world. I dream of a cooperative spirit among all its peoples, onethat recognizes our common humanity.<quoted text>
I am simply wrong? you say?
guy, I travel around the world. and I know what I'm saying.
most admired country in the world? you say?
you are wrong, pilgrim..it is evident to me that you don't travel very much. If anything, it's not admiration they are showing us, it's envy. do you know the difference?
as for your claim that isolationism would dissipate our good will, on the contrary, I think it would force the rest of the world to respect us more. look at what it has done for china.
if we stopped outsourcing our jobs, and our factories, the usa would be stronger today. and the demand for our products would be higher than ever before.
do you want to know why, genius?
it's because in the last century, we invented most of the goodies that people around the world want. they would be forced to buy the stuff from us instead of us buying it from them.
our people would all be working overtime to fill the orders from overseas.
Alcoa had the right idea back in the 19th century when they built their aluminum factories in the usa and imported the baxite ore in from other countries.
I find your views abhorrent and narrow-minded. And you are not the only one who travels throughout the world. It is our generosity that has made us a world leader, not our firepower.
