I wasn't going to comment, but since you asked...
You know I find it sad that people look at the USA as the force that casts a shadow. I know our government has its problems, but it is better to its people than most. People cry about the USA, but when their country is attacked by tyranny, they look to us for help. Many US soldiers have paid the ultimate price for liberation of the peoples around this world. It is kind of like how people look at the police, if they are being robbed then they want the help, but when they are getting a speeding ticket they cry hate...I being from The United States of America, think you have the right to voice your opinion, but like I said your point of view saddens me...
RLG,
Tommy

Since I have been sent to clean up the messes some Americans create in foreign countries, I can say, there are times I have been ashamed of my fellow countrymen and women; but never ashamed of my country. I attribute it to being badly brought up, and it is not an exclusively American trait, it is a human problem. You see examples of it coming from many countries, usually the bad behavior is commited by a military age young man; you know the type, think they know it all.

The poem itself isn't bad, but it has a few good points. Overall, the idea was relatively creative and clever.

Personally, I liked the poem well enough, though. For all intents and purposes, it's true, too, from a certain perspective; that of the American foreign/military policy of recent times. The other two faces would be the America of Americans and the America of the American Dream. I find it sad that everyone only sees/comments on/writes about the warhawk agendas of former, idiotic presidents because that's all they've seen.

All in all, still a good write.

Trust me, there are many of us that can't stand the government here as well. There are just so few who have the courage to change it for fear of losing this false "comfortable" life. :) When it all implodes then they will get off their couches and ask for a change.

I agree, this is a very clever write. and also, the idea is very unique!
Well, I don't know what to say about the whole policy and things, since I don't really know the difference, I didn't live in USA although i WILL love TO :)
Also, the whole font , the way you talk about/ present this poem strongly add emotions and the strength into this poem :D
Amazing :D

The writing and the message were cleverly delivered. I know our country has it's problems, no doubt about that, and the current admin. pisses me off. My husband is a United states soldier and we have dedicated our lives to uphold your rights, like this one here to express yourself. Just Remember those who have died trying to protect this right. The poem, however, and that's actually what I should be reviewing, is another very good write.

I'm pro-Obama too. Well, he's not George W. Bush.

Nice, messy emotional explosion.

And, just so we're all clear, I'm a pro-U.S, pro-Obama left-wing Australian.
