  • I don't think you can compare european and north-american politics in terms of "left" and "right". For example, in the USA, everyone seems to find normal the statement "God bless America", or that a president alludes in public to his religious beliefs. In France, even the ultra-far-right representatives avoid doing this (in public at least), because this would be felt as a direct attack against the Republic. -- Idem for the problem of racial segregation, which is often tied to immigration in Europe, not in
    • exactly - there is only right of centre in america - if you compare it to europe or japan.

      The UK never had deliberate policies of racial segregation - some pubs used to have 'no dogs, no irish, no blacks' but that was a long time ago and never an official or even popular policy.

      Britain and europe never really had a culture of slavery - they benefitted greatly from slavery elswhere and through the slave trade but a lot less than the United States, where slavery was a major part of its economy and culture

      • Choose politics. Choose a party affiliation. Choose an office as your goal. Choose your trophy spouse. Choose a fucking big house. Choose power lunches, drunken boating trips, hookers and crooks...choose CSPAN and wondering who the fuck you are watching a Senate hearing. Choose sitting in Congress listening to an ancient man read from a phonebook. Choose photo-op-ing your way to the end, becoming an official United States Lobbyist Figurehead, nothing more than an embarrassment to the party, the selfish wastrels you hand-picked to replace yourself. Choose America's future. Choose politics...but why would I want to do a thing like that?
