Being pro American is being anti Liberal, and what they see America being, one gigantic social science project. It hurts their push towards globalism under the guise of global warming initiatives.
Thanks from Jimmyb and coke

100,000 sperm and you were the fastest...
"The American Experiment" was a name given to the experiment of letting people govern themselves rather than being governed by a monarchy or dictatorship, or by a religious organization. In all other countries, the working people were not allowed to rule themselves, but followed laws and rules created without their representation, or consideration of their interests.
"The American Experiment" was deemed a likely failure by many who believed that the main populous were like children, did not know what was good for them, and would not be able to agree, but rather would always only think of what was good for themselves individually and not the good of others.
"The American Experiment" is not the same as "The American Dream", which is the equal opportunity for success through hard work, and is often expanded to be educated, debt free and own your own home.
in other words it's called the American experiment because it is...
Thanks from iolo

Whether you're a realist, a liberal, constructivist or whatever in International Relations Theory, that should be clear to you.

3. Isolationism doesn't work. Most great economists, historians, IR scholars, etc agree with this statement.

4. Simply ignoring the plights of the other 6.7 billion people on this planet is pretty fucking cruel when you're arguably the sole superpower of this world.

5. It's a reactionist policy. People are pissy about the government and about how shitty the world is, so some guy pops up promising to make all that go away or not concern the people anymore. That's not a saviour, but a scammer.
Do they only allow you to text in the bathroom at your military academy?
Thanks from Sabcat

No, not at all. I have everything I could ever want here. There definitely isn't a guy putting a gun to my head right now.

Judas! Sabcat, I KNOW you are not that THICK. America First isn't good or bad. It's a frickin' slogan that Trump pulled out of his YUGE ASS. Trump was asked by a reporter about his foreign policy and guess what he said: " “I’m not isolationist, but I am ‘America First.’ So I like the expression.”

He likes the expression. It looks good on a bumper sticker. It's short. It's easy--5 syllables which is more than Trump usually blabs. What does it mean? Absolutely nothing.
Thanks from iolo and Daws77

Those things are not part of the democrat platform sorry, more like take what you can from the rich, and when the complain call them racists, bigots, misogynists, xenophobic. Stay on the government roles as long as possible, and live in your parents basement to make the money last longer.
