I KNOW THAT THE CANUCKS DON'T PLAY IN THE US, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. BUT I'M A MEMBER OF TWO FORUMS, THE FIRST BEING THIS, THE SECOND BEING A SWEDISH FORUM, IN SWEDISH, WITH SWEDISH PEOPLE, AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF "GEE, SINCE AMERICANS ARE SO GOOD AT OTHER LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY SWEDISH SINCE IT'S SUCH A BIG COUNTRY WITH NINE MILLION INHABITANTS, WHY DON'T I POST ON THE SWEDISH FORUM?" NO, I DIDN'T THINK THAT.
So, being from Sweden, I don't really get to meet that many Americans, and the Americans I do meet normally turn out to be democrats who think that the "socialistic society" we've got here is great (free university, free dental if you're under 20, free health care and so on). I never get to meet a real Tea Party/Republican/"I hate homosexuals" kind of guy.
I have got a few questions for Americans about your freedom, so let's start off:
1) how is America the "Land of the Free"? I mean, you've banned homo-marriage (don't know if that is the politically correct term in English, but yeah,) thus removing the right to be free, to choose what's best for him or her, in his or her life.
Don't come here like "it says so in the Bible". Like yeah, it does, but why should that matter? What if you don't believe in God, or not in that way, or in another God? Why should religion affect laws? Wasn't your country founded by people (I, of course, mean the Europeans here; not the native Americans) who had to flee from their native countrys because they weren't allowed to believe what they wanted there?
2) How can it be okey for education to cost money? I mean, sure, you can get scholarships and get to go to collage and even the university for free, but not everyone can get that. How is it okey to punish a child for what their parents did or didn't do? And you don't only punish the child, you punish the child's children, too. And you even punish THEIR children. And by punish I mean not giving them the opportunity to get the education they want, this makes them make less money when they get older, and not being allowed to pay for their children when they need to go to collage.
I've got plenty more, but I'm tired.
Please flame away!
