As for precious about my country's image, I'd suggest you reread the opening two lines of my reply you quoted, this time for comprehension.
Perhaps you ought to re-read my post that you got all pissy about. This time concentrate on your own comprehension.

FFS what a dick!

Yeah, I did. I also read where you'd said you've never been here. Forgive me if I find the juxtaposition revealing.

As for me being a dick to you -- I make change in the coin tendered. Now go play in the traffic, child.

So, in your opinion, do you think a person has to have been to America in order to be justified in asking a question about it?

We're not a beacon, and we should not be one. Why should you look to America for anything?
I don't look to America for anything other than head scratching laughs.

My post was with regards to a comment in the article that a link was provided to, within the original post of this thread.
Quote:gotten so close to leading the globe’s beacon of democracy
It struck me as an odd thing for someone to say, so it prompted me to ask the question, whether Americans consider USA to be a beacon of democracy.

You don't live here; you don't have to deal with it. What, exactly, are you upset about?
What on earth gave you the idea that I was upset about anything?

What? Don't know what you are talking about.

I mean, it really seems strange to me that you take such offense to me stating that USA is a beacon for religious nut jobs and people that like guns. It's just facts right? Why get troubled because I point out some facts? Why then come back and get focused on me, Saying that "I'm saddling up".

It's like you have such a thin skin, thin skin for any criticism of your country.
Ray Comfort a religious nut job from NZ, goes to USA because USA is a beacon for his nuttiness. Same for Australia's Ken Ham.

I didn't even say anything derogatory regarding guns or gun owners, I just stated that people who like guns and like to carry would find USA to be a beacon. You can't walk around in NZ carrying loaded weapons in public, you can't walk around with pistols or AR-15's so those people would likely hate NZ, USA is where they would get the freedom to do what they want with guns.

And the purpose of my post was extremely clear. I was wanting to know if other Americans thought that USA was a beacon for democracy. It was clearly a question rather than with intent to inform or enlighten others.

Being on my phone, I'll reply to this length post when I get home and on my laptop.

Be advised, I highly doubt you'll like my answer.

I generally don't like nor see value or relevance to the vast majority of your posts.
