Your point is just as equally stupid.

Is this thread not fixating on American voters

Possibly... just meant to say that, sadly, the media control public opinion just about everywhere, to a greater or lesser degree.

Agreed, though it definitely seems that the American people are among the least educated voters in the westernized world. If they were educated, it would not be a battle between Obama and Mitt Romney. Obama would win, hands-down.

And yes, third-party supporters, I did just imply the Green Party is useless.

I think the size of their country plays an important role - when your country is half a continent big it's quite easy to mistake it for the whole world; to not travel abroad and not follow the world news, at least not as much as we, in our tiny European countries, do...

I was quite surprised that people in Brazil were very much the same - even professional musicians were barely familiar with anything that wasn't Brazilian (or American); the bigger and/or stronger your country is, the more likely it is to forget that there are other (and different) places in this world. And the more you know about the world, the more educated choices you'll be making when you vote (presumably).

The majority of American people are already deluded to the point where they rejecting anything remotely European, but if you rename it as an American idea, they will push for it.

This is where my idea of countries being artificial and potentially harmful creations comes in... though most people find it rather radical and/or naive. I mean, I know why we need them, but to me that's the first step to justifying just about anything... as soon as someone tells me I should care about a group of people more than for the rest of humankind for whatever reason (physical proximity, same skin colour, shared belief in the same imaginary being, what have you), I'm already on the path to justifying murder (under the right - or wrong - circumstances).

If you are so opposed to that, then you could name your character, fallacy queen I suppose. Or you could name it dog shit, i dont care, but you should definitely change it as logic is not your strong point.
