I think we should use the Maple Syrup Scandal as leverage to gain political influence in their parliament. Then we elect a puppet Prime Minister, and he will allow us to annex Canada without bloodshed.

I agree with it for the most part, though I think in some cases, it makes sense to bypass it.

On an honest ranking, I would give it an 8/10. The country is truly great. I never seen a country where so many diverse people have lived together and lived in peace and prosperity (for the most part) there isn't really any welcoming nation like the U.S, and it truly makes you proud to say you are an American. If you are wondering why I didnt give it a 10/10, is because like other countries, it has it's flaws. I think there are issues with things like healthcare costs, criminal justice and racism in some areas, but overall it's a great country.

Thoughts on Vermont Carry?

Vermont is a rural state with an educated populace. Since hunting and other recreational activities are common, I'm perfectly fine with it. It also has one of the lowest crime rates in America, and is even safer than some Canadian and European cities.

Not really. I can't think of a country like that, but I would give the Swiss and Canada an 8/10 as well.

What is your opinion on Donald Trump?

He has made some good points, but I don't trust him to act upon it, and I don't think it is wise for his to be president either.


What is the solution to fighting ISIS?
We just need to continue to bomb them, and keep their numbers down, but the goal should be to get Assad to fight ISIS, and let his take control of his own country. We should have never got involved.


Which faction in the Syrian civil war do you support?
I'm not a huge fan of any, but I guess the Kurds are alright.


Did the US pull out of Iraq too early?

Yes and No. We pulled too early, but even if we pulled out in 2016, ISIS or some other group would have came to power. I think Republicans are trying to deflect the blame on Obama for leaving early, but the truth is, that it would have happened eventually when he left. The issue is why we went into Iraq in the first place.

Assad is a d!ckhead though, he might be secular but he's a totalitarian ruler who's been responsible for chemical weapons and awful human rights violations.

The issue is why we went into Iraq in the first place.

So you think it wouldn't be realistic to help Iraq the same way we helped Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan modernize?

I know, but the alternative is ISIS. I rather have a leader who has the country in a stable position rather than ISIS running it. I guess we can negotiate with Assad.


Which faction in the Syrian civil war do you support?
I'm not a huge fan of any, but I guess the Kurds are alright.
What do you think of the Free Syrian Army?

Largely negative. There are several cases of them committing sexual assault and rape, and many of them are affiliated with ISIS.

Yes and No. We pulled too early, but even if we pulled out in 2016, ISIS or some other group would have came to power.

No, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan do not follow some asinine religion, which influences they way they behave. As long as Islam is there, that part of the world will never modernize.

That's a minority of the rebels though, and a few sexual assaults are nothing compared to what Assad did. The group is largely secular, even though there are a few bad apples here and there.

No, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan do not follow some asinine religion, which influences they way they behave. As long as Islam is there, that part of the world will never modernize.

I think radicalism and politics are more of a problem than the religion. I dislike Islam too, but I don't think it would be reasonable to blame purely the religion itself on everything going on in the middle east.

I don't think Iraq could have modernized the same way Eastern Asia did though, just wanted to know what your thoughts on it were.

We been funding the FSA since 2011. No progress has been made. Many of them are nearly as bad as Assad, and it's basically a non-factor in the war now.

That's a minority of the rebels though, and a few sexual assaults are nothing compared to what Assad did. The group is largely secular, even though there are a few bad apples here and there.

I don't trust them. I think a large amount have joined ISIS or are supporting ISIS. They are pretty useless. The Kurds are a more useful ally.



Did the US pull out of Iraq too early?

Yes and No. We pulled too early, but even if we pulled out in 2016, ISIS or some other group would have came to power. I think Republicans are trying to deflect the blame on Obama for leaving early, but the truth is, that it would have happened eventually when he left. The issue is why we went into Iraq in the first place.

So you think it wouldn't be realistic to help Iraq the same way we helped Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan modernize?

No, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan do not follow some asinine religion, which influences they way they behave. As long as Islam is there, that part of the world will never modernize.

I think radicalism and politics are more of a problem than the religion. I dislike Islam too, but I don't think it would be reasonable to blame purely the religion itself on everything going on in the middle east.

I don't think Iraq could have modernized the same way Eastern Asia did though, just wanted to know what your thoughts on it were.

I certainly think it's the main cause. It's the reason why no progress is ever made in that part of the world. It's maybe not the only reason, but the main reason.
