In another thread the US political situation came up, and I said I'd not comment again in that thread on the US political matter that had been under discussion by me and others there. Since I said I wouldn't, I haven't commented on those specific matters since, and won't - they're done and finished as far as I'm concerned. However, someone in that thread has raised a new aspect to do with why Europeans see US Politics in a different light to Australians. That is what I'll comment on here - the difference in the overseas views on US politics.
Most of Europe and the Europeans have a strong socialist approach and leans to political matters. Much of how many of the Europeans view things is done through a communal socialist world window approach - note: not all Europeans are this way, just the majority of them, mostly due to their media, education systems, and politicians.
Most Australians take a much more individualistic approach and don't want the total control of life an everything the socialist view endorses. This is despite the heavy inroads the socialist propaganda from Europe and some areas of the USA are having on the Australian society and people via the media, films, and the education system.
I hope this helps you to understand why the different perceptions of what's going on around the world, and in the USA itself.
Another aspect that raises it's head with some of the people involved in the US politics is we have a major disdain for hypocrites, liars, cheats, thieves, and traitors. Also, many of us look for the truth behind things instead of accepting the BS put out by the major media outlets looking to control the world for their owners.
