Thirdly, I'm just some random ignorant brit on the internet to you, why bother bringing this up?
Just because someone doesn't disagree with your point of view doesn't mean they're crazy. And let's remember that in our last election, 53% of Americans voted for Barack Obama. Are they, crazy? Should I make a blatant statement that all Brits are xenophobic Yank-haters with lousy teeth because people like you make generalized statements about us based on nothing but their own prejudices? Or should I make a sweeping generalization, based solely on the population of this forum, that nearly all UK and Commonwealth citizens are slightly loopy, highly intelligent, caring, funny, and open-minded liberals? Much as I would like to believe this true, I have met enough to know that this isn't the case. Every nation has its share of sickos, murderers, and other assorted whackos. Do you condemn a entire nation, 99% of whom are nonviolent, law abiding people for the actions of their most extreme residents? Is there a nation on Earth that could withstand such scrutiny?
