The EU, NATO and the euro are antiwestern concepts. Democracy only functions within cultures. What you believe in is imperial domination. The smaller the political entity the more democratic... the closer to the people.

Only a total moron would view world empire as somehow a liberal notion. You, Hitler and Genghis Khan seem to be its major supporters.

According to the survey, 55 percent of Russian nationals view the United States positively, a 2 percent increase since September 2012. Thirty percent are negative about the United States, a 2 percent drop.

Those positive about the United States included supporters of Russia’s ruling party, United Russia (61 percent), young people (62 percent) and residents of large cities (66 percent). Those who perceived the United States negatively were mainly supporters of the Communist Party (42 percent), the elderly (42 percent) and residents of Russia’s two largest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg (40 percent).

Meanwhile, the proportion of Russians who are positive about Russian-US relations has fallen from 53 percent to 39 percent since last fall. The share of those negatively assessing bilateral relations has risen from 42 percent to 56 percent.

Most Democrats and most Republicans. The USA has a single national Anglo-Saxon culture. The idea that we would admit states that were not...

Why do you think Puerto Rico has not been made the 51st state? Why do you suppose NAFTA is so weak and unpopular? THe USA is a very nationalist country. WE do not want to be like Canada stuck with our own "Quebec problem". Quebec by the way would be much better off divorced from English speaking Canada.

Democracy functions within cultures... where everyone is subject to the same political debate.

Put Germans, Poles, Greeks and Spanish under one common European government and you have Poles, Greeks and Spaniards living under Germany's heel. THe classic imperialist model. It is like taking Europe back in time several centuries.

Your worldview is Byzantine. The primitivist idea of a one world government dates back to Rome and Constantinople.,, not to mention to Adolf HItler and Genghis Khan.

The reason the USA is divided up into states and states into counties? Democracy functions bast on the local level. The bigger the bureaucracy the less democratic.

THe idea that a Europe wide imperial government could pretend to be in touch with the people... what people... the bureaucrats represent no particular nation and no particular culture... the very antithesis of democratic.

but uthera you are forgetting about the socialists implanted by the Potomac and myriad of Hispanics coming from the south, many of whom are communists. they are not Spanish only spanish speakers with beaucoup moorish blood in them and many are Native American. America is a lot more mulitcultural than Germany, Scandanavia or any European country. beaucoup nationalities and cultures. do you actually live in Florida and not know this. you use the imperialist word but not as much as Dimitri.

Hispanics tend to be conservative Catholics. If not for the hateful rhetoric of the nativist teabaggers...

Besides they quickly learn English and become part of the Anglo-Saxon mainstream. You would heare no Spanish spoken at Miami's city hall.(-: As everyone assimilates there is no multiculturalism. An American English speaker of any ethnicity is pretty much the same.

Dmitri is quite correct to label Barack Obama an Anglo-Saxon.(-:

wow, uthera, you're further out there then i thought. Obama is a Kenyan, at least half Kenyan. no Spanish spoken at Miami's city hall. Miami is the capital of American Cuba and the last i recollect Cubans speak Spanish. so you're saying Cubans are not allowed in Miami's city hall. You are much the comedian, uthera. Much like our Slovak friend, Peshky. go into any McDonalds or Chik Fil A in America and you will hear beaucoup parents speaking to their children in Spanish. Of course you wouldn't know that.

Haha!! You left out the White nationalists, neo-nazi's, etc.(your groups) United Russia and Putin were trying to blame the USA for causing their vote fraud and corrption after they were caught. And then blaming the USA for suppoorting the opposition against them. Quite the propagandist you are, sweetie-pie.

As usual, you speak lies, half-man child. The latest statistics just realesed last week from the USA Census, stated quite clearly that 90 PERCENT of ist and 2nd. generation hispanic citizens are registered democrats, AND VOTED THE DEMOCRAT TICKET STRAIGHT UP TO OBAMA!! That is why Obama and his socialist freaks are supporting socialism. To appease their power base, while ignoring reasonable bi-party solutions. He wants to keep the folks divided, idiot.

Idiot, they don't speak Spanish when they're in City Hall. Not unless there's an interpreter available. Courts too. All conducted in ENGLISH.

I went to Chik Fil A (great food!) and one of their workers was a woman in a burka. No kidding! She didn't have her face covered though. I was amazed they hired her & let her dress like that at work.
