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 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.

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.

you say I have no compassion?
idiot, I have a lot of compassion. but it's for americans and America. I care about the double digit unemployment in the usa. the 47 million on welfare. the fact that we have this huge debt.
my compassion is for my home country and my people.
YOU on the other hand care more for foreigners then you do for americans and America.
makes me wonder if you are even an American...probably not.
You are a simple-minded dolt. This dance is over.

Wow, so it is being a simple minded dolt to put our own citizens first???
Who'd have thunk it??? I am all for helping poor countries just as long as we take care of our own poor and needy first. The last thing we need to do is to import more poor into our own country to suck up jobs, welfare dollars and resources that our own citizens need. Helping them within their own countries makes more sense than doing that and that is only if our own citizens have the tax dollars they need to sustain themselves first. If that kind of rational thinking makes one a simple minded dolt then I wear that label proudly just as long as those who put foreigners first are willing to wear the label of anti-American POS which is what they are with their misplaced compassion for foreigners especially those here illegally rather than the rightful citizens of this country. I hold nothing but contempt for them.

Compassion can only be spread so thin when it comes dollars and resources. You have to make choices since those things are limited. We cannot be the saviors to the whole world without destroying our own citizen's lives. But who cares about them, right? They aren't worthy of some people's compassion. I guess they just aren't as human as the rest of the world.

what are you, muslim? that is what they dream of. and believe will happen when we all submit to islam.

do you want to submit to islam?

if not, then, your dreams of mutual harmony will not ever materialize...unless perhaps if you want to consider genocide where the muslims are concerned.

as for your claim that our generosity is what made us a world leader, I think that is bullshit.

china is a world leader. so is Russia. and they haven't given a dime to anyone.

the reason why the usa is a world leader is because of our technology. no more. no less.

anybody with half a brain knows this. so, where does that leave you?

I specially asked you if you were Jewish. If you say you are NOT, but you are, you must consider that you are denying it to defend your ridiculous posts in a foolish online forum when your ancestors did not deny they were Jews to the Spanish inquisitors or even the nazis. I ask you again, are you Jewish. BTW, I am a proud Jew! You are NOT a wet back. Azzwipe.

Jesus Christ! YOU ARE A JEW! Look at your answer. You know you will be damned if you say you are not a Jew and you are, so you avoid the matter completely resorting to name calling. How can I be anti-Semitic if I am, as I proudly said, a Jew? Don't obfuscate. Be a man. Are you a Jew? Yes or no. Don't lie. Jew or not? We all already know you are NOT a wet back.

This article is a bunch of BS. I am Jewish and I want as many illegal aliens deported as possible. Not Jose though, since his real name is Roger Jackson and he's not Mexican or even Hispanic.
