I am going to be honest with you, and I mean this respectfully.
You seemingly have this outstanding pride for your country, and I respect that. I really, and honestly do. But, your pride gets in the way of rational thinking, judgement and logic.
Australia is not the shining glimmer of hope for the world to strive to be. I am not saying America is, but you seemingly want to make sure everyone knows how GOOD your country is and how BAD everyone else's is.
To me, and I am sure to many others, that shows desperation on your part to show how significant Australia is on our planet when deep down - maybe you think it isn't. Why? I am proud to be an American... and proud to live where I do. But who here (including me) has attempted, to the extent that you have, to prove we are so superior to you other inferior nations? No one. No one is trashing your country, and on the contrary, I've always hope to visit one day. But you have this dire need to make me, and everyone else here who asks for a fair assessment and rational logic, to look like some poor, pathetic human being who is unfortunate to live in the country they do. If they could only be so lucky to be an Australian.
I don't mean to be rude... but it's sad. I think Australia is beautiful and an amazing place I'd like to visit one day. But, your desperation to trash the country I live in, is pretty sad. And as greeney2 pointed out, the non-stop posts back to back to keep trying to prove your point on how wrong we all are, and how right you are, is pretty telling.
Just my two cents.
I understand your point of view, but lets be honest ...... I post my Australia POV on the black vault sure.
But only coz i sit back & watch you all bang on about how good you think the usa is & how you all think the USA gave the world freedom & democracy ....... ( something we both know is wrong ) & i just provide a fair & balanced alternative to all the Americans on this site who keep pushing U.S lies & propaganda.
So the issue is not & never has been my pride or nationalism.
The issue is that you are all getting your nickers in a knot because you think my posting the truth about America & it's way of life.
is Australian nationalism.
But the truth is that feeling you get Anger / Annoyances, what ever you wish to call it ..... maybe that's your national pride & short sightedness getting in the way of the truth. A truth you all don't wanna hear or believe.
You all get bent out of shape because, Im just give you all another point of view ... one you don't otherwise get from the U.S owned & run media sites. Or from the US government. ( coz they would never tell you.)
heaven forbid the people who visit the Blackvault & bang on about government conspiracy & government brainwashing / secrets / lies ...... ever see/hear the facts as they really are.
Who knows maybe one-day they will learn to think for themselves.
So maybe the issue is not that i push my Australia agenda or that i think Australia is better.
maybe your just upset that im doing to the USA & it's people what the USA does to the entire world on a daily bases. ( god knows you all did it to me when i first joined the Black vault ) iv just gone on the offensive ever since.
Im use to hearing Americans make untrue claims like the USA gave the world the freedoms you all enjoy. & the USA save you all in the wars ect ect.
Youes lot are not so use to hearing how the USA never did anything of the kind. & that in fact the USA enjoy the freedoms we gave you. & we in fact saved the world ( we being the rest of the world )
But your so right.
I am clearly out of line & i should follow all the sheep out there on planet America, & not rock the boat.
So here i go.
USA .... greatest nation in the world ....
USA .... is the most powerful nation the world has ever seen.
USA .... gave the world all it's freedoms & human rights.
USA .... Everybody envies you, & we all wish we were from the USA.
USA .... owns every company in the world & created every nation on the planet.
USA .. invented all scientific discovery's & creations
Americans are so wise & so hansom
America has perfected everything in the world, & there is no need to change anything.
Don't introduce healthcare for Americans. ( it just socialism )
Don't ban guns ( whats a few million dead from gun fire )
If you ban guns the big bad government might get us all .... oowwwww
Don't fix the tax system .... the poor don't need a place to live. If you tax them even more ... & they wont kill you all for your shoes.
The USA is perfect just the way it is.
can we say brainwashed.

That's cool. i don't take offense ....... But the fact is. im not going to lie to you all & tell you the USA is perfect' when it's not. no matter how many American's try & tell us all otherwise.
Nor am i going to sit quietly by while other member post lies & propaganda about how the USA has done everything from save the world in wars the USA was not even apart of & then make propaganda films to say they did. or they American company's invented something when they just stole it from somebody else.
So maybe im not the irrational one here ....... after all ..... if i & the entire world can put up with every single American & all their pro American nonsense ..... Then im sure you all can put up with little old me. After all im only one person. & there are over 300 million American's.
That's 300 million plus pro American's. verse .... one single solitary Australian.
Im sure you can appreciate my position John.
