Halftimedad,
Many people in our country too are quick to blame the media, but we view the "general" media as being left leaning. I'm not sure under what situations your country's citizens may file a law suit, but in my home state, if i don't approve of a say.......Christmas tree in my local airport, I can file a law suit to sue them to remove it or for civil damages for $100. Now if I want to make a "statement" I'd sue them for say 10 million dollars. SAME FEE! $100. I think our country should impose a 10% law, that is, if you sue for 10 million, the filing fee for that suit should be 10% of the suit........if you lose, you lose the money! It sure would stop all the stupid law suits, but then again, we have more lawyers per capita then any country in the world, so what would "they" do..........I don't care, let them get real jobs.
Now you talk about salaries.......laughing......believe me when i say, I can't relate with even our president's salary, as far as i know it's between 200 and $250,000 , compare that to sport figures, CEOs of large corporations...........it's a joke for the man who leads our country........we KNOW that! Are we happy about it? I'm sure we aren't happy about it, but what have we created being a capitalistic country? How does that boil down in your country?

Look at where she's coming from. Apparently she considers her positions to be reasonable.

So it's kind of a given that anybody from any other first world country is going to seem like a wild leftist. It's possible to live in the US and be completely unaware of how that nation achieved greatness because of government interventions, not in spite of them. You'd pretty much have to go to Somalia, or Pakistan to find citizens that hold such radical and extremist positions as part of the mainstream.
