I love America. But like my children I don't always love what it does.

1st I combined both your post into this one. No need to post twice for one sentence.

2nd I do not like many of the things those in charge do. Even some that I really like make me think, why did they support that!?

I am tired of all those suffering from "tin ear".

Same thing that always does in democracies, people voted themselves the tresury, the politicians use that fact to buy votes and 1 day we'll wake up to civil war or a dictator.

I love England but as it was when I was a child and definately not as it is now. It's changed so much and had change enforced upon it that it will never be as it once was and thats very sad.

I understand. But it really bothers some people when I say I liked the 50s and 60s better than what we have now.

I only hear nationalists complain. Most Eros I've spoken to like being the #1-2 economy and just wish a working constitution could be ratified.

Most of the people I hear that don't like it are British. But they never said what "label" they claimed. But then I don't go by labels much.

I can see when they would be proud of their economy. I know how proud we all are of ours these days.

I'm guessing you haven't spoken to any Greek people and probably not any Italians, Spanish, or Portuguese people either? Also clearly you haven't been paying attention to the financial news if you think only nationalists complain- most economists tend not to be nationalists but more realists and there are a lot of them who see inherent issues with the current EU

Not necessarily. Where is your statistic to back up that claim?
