It seems to me like most foreigners who post negatively about the United States (in reference to laws, obesity, crime, politics, etc) are often sharing the same point of view of many of the US residents on the forum. I realize we represent only a small fraction of Americans - probably middle to upper class if we're heavy computer/Mac users, mostly from metropolitan areas, and undoubtedly predominantly male. But still, we tend to share very similar viewpoints in general to the non-Americans here. So are they referring to our politicians? Our computer illiterate? Our republicans? All of the above (I'm looking at you, George W.)?
