Because most of us are Americans, we are the majority, it's what we are interested in, it's what we know.

Only 8% of DDO is American: http://www.debate.org...

The userbase of the site is predominantly American. The conversations, predominantly about US issues. Not hard to understand.

Some conversations about other country take off, but usually in how that effects US policy.

But this is strange, many people who aren't even American are discussing about the US issues.

lol that just shows who bothered to fill out their profile, but it is funny, and think you are trying to be funny, but even if that was true, then we'll change it to say we are the most vocal and dominant. 88% other lol must be China.

That is true, there probably isn't the same kind of turmoil in their countries that they see in ours which makes it interesting. Keep in mind certain turmoil is stifled or illegal by their governments, and certainly doesn't monopolize the media.

Because a large percent of users are American and even outside the US many people are familiar with our politics. Because of my hours a lot of my friends on another site are Aussies, some of them can talk US politics better than many Americans. I doubt many Americans can talk Australia politics, they simply don't care. That isn't to say that politics from other countries isn't discussed but there has to be interest. I am a newcomer to the site but I suspect there were a number of discussions about Brexit here not long ago.

The US is (1) the most popular country in the world, and (2) the active userbase is predominantly from the US, thus US discussion commences. It doesn't matter what site demographics say, the active userbase is of a majority American.
