From the desk of The Brussels Journal on Thu, 2008-01-03 11:45 A quote from the editorial in the Brussels newspaper De Standaard, 3 January 2008
American presidential elections are not home affairs. American decisions have repercussions all over the globe. The American mortgage crisis affects banks in Europe. The insatiable American demand for oil makes the Arabian sheiks rich. The American refusal to care for the environment causes the North Pole ice to melt and coastal areas in Asia to flood. A weakened dollar and an immense budget deficit affect the global economy.
Hence, the world should be given the right to vote. Because the current situation is a blatant case of taxation without representation, against which the Americans rebelled in 1776. But of course the world will not be allowed to vote. The best we can hope for is that the Americans choose a leader who is deeply aware of the U.S.s responsibility, as a superpower, for the rest of mankind.
The international community was able to limit Americas hegemony somewhat through organisations for international consultation, agreements and the corresponding judicial apparatus. But that system is in crisis, partly through the actions of the current American president.
I must have missed that particular passage in the U.S. Constitution...
If they get to vote in ours, do we get to vote in theirs? It’s only fair.
If space aliens could vote - Kucinich???
... and noone said it will be female virgins.
oh come on - you can’t even vote correctly in your’s.
Liberal Europeans DEMANDS the right to vote in US elections. Jeez, sorry Europeans — the only way is by 2 ways — 1) you INVADE us or 2)You move to the USA and become a US CITIZEN - and when you do, you’ll find out (if you got any brains) that FREEDOM is SPECIAL.
I know #1 would never happen because you are LETTING MUSLIMS INVADE your countries, as opposed to US as we are TRYING to keep ILLEGALS (and TERRORISTS?) from INVADING us - thou 90% of our congress don’t care about BUILDING THE FENCE!!
Sorry LIBERAL EUROPEANS — but you would rather have the UN as the GOVERNMENT, but we want THE PEOPLE to be the GOVERNMENT!!
In other words, LIBERAL EUROPEANS, DROP DEAD!! You ruin Europe — we DO NOT WANT YOU TO RUIN THE USA!!
“Children, convicts, and barnyard animals also have a stake in the outcome but they cant vote here either.”
Oh yeah? Just wait ‘till November!
Typical Euro-Socialist: saying America is responsible for them and for the rest of the world. Oh, how deeply I despise socialists!
How about you get your economic and defense houses in order, such that anybody cares what you think?
How’s that socialism and no visable means of defense approach working out for you?
The Western elites are so addled by prevailing Liberal attitudes and ideas that they are eager to adopt whatever in-vogue wisdom they believe makes them look good to the media who will say good things about them, so those things must be true, right?
Selfish stupid narcissists and those who adopt the Christianity-twisted-into-Liberalism mentality will be the death of us all.
Guten Morgen! Prosit Neujahr!
Germany does have a pretty good record of stopping some terrorist acts, but that skill was either not acquired or not employed until after 9/11 and all the fingers pointed to Germnay as the place the plan was set in motion.
Germany allowed in countless numbers of mohammedans, especially from Turkey. Those same mohammedans are now at a number they feel they can dictate terms to their German hosts. That’s not good for Germany; which, by the way, is my ancestral home.
Brussels Derangement Syndrome.
you are 100 years late mate.
but sure enough the victory over hitler was the peak of power for the US - so it seems to you like it was yesterday.

>> You mean the fingers of those responsible for preventing these things to happen in the US (FBI etc.) ?
In Germany we have:
More growth - less corporate tax - less complicated corporate tax laws - less states debts - then in the US.
Our security situation is peachy - any attempt so far to launch terroristic attacs on the german public has failed.
While in the US the subprime quagmire will be socialized by a republican president (you sir - will pay for all those who own a house they could never afford) - germanies industry is running on highest loads despite the vast increase of the Euro to Dollar ratio.
Check out a BMW, VW, Mercedes or Audi and compare it to a true socialist car from detroit - you will feel the difference.
>Check out a BMW, VW, Mercedes or Audi <
Check out their reliability, according to J.D. Powers!
>Check out a BMW, VW, Mercedes or Audi <
BMW and Mercedes autos are being built in the USA with VW looking to build a new factory.
We should have let the Nazi’s have Europe, and then nuked Germany back to the stoneage.
