The U.S. Model: For years, much of the world did aspire to the American way of life. But today countries are finding more appealing systems in their own backyards.

Sounds good to me - these sorry bastards can stay in their own respective countries, then.

The hatred of America is obvious. Consider the MSM sources. Nothing new here.

These sad little countries are so out of touch with the 21st century. And they may never catch up.

Does this mean we get to stop the immigration policies that allow the Euros and LA's in? I guess they'll stop making a run for the border now huh.

I read this article with increasing disbelief. This idea that just because politicians of other countries say they want to regulate free speech ("the influence of TV"--imagine the reaction if they'd answered "the influence of news magazines") and that they don't want corruption are somehow free of corruption and "influences" is laughable.

The writer came to a decision, then went looking for polls (LOL) to prop up his assumption.
