Hi USA. Here in Australia (located in the Region of Sahul), we have been getting a lot of your Politics in regards to your election of late and I thought I should join a USA Forum to find out what real US citizens think, rather than rely upon what we get via our Media here. I think it a more valuable insight in regards to any opinions I make in discussions here in Australia. If you like, I can offer an 'outside opinion' of the USA, for constructive reasons? I may occasionally throw in a 'wild card' to really show that there can always be more than one right answer to a problem or question and that things are not really just black or white. As you may know - Politically, Australia has always been in existence from an International set of reigns (or chain and shackles) and one of the few countries that keeps the UN afloat financially. Yep - we are a filthy rich country with a very low birth rate and population, with a society that exists upon a personal level at a 'middle-class' equilibrium. Well that's my intro. Pleased to meet you finally USA. Oz of Sahul.
