Puzzled. Wow, you seem to be a terribly disturbed person. You need to control your blood pressure, being in your 70's and all.

"I have been all over the world". Well, that depends how you managed this feat. You were either in the military, a normal tourist traveller, or in or on business. Those three types of travel give an entirely different point of view. You'll notice I did not say I've been all over the world but that "... I have lived and worked in socialist coutries". Therefore I was constantly among the ordinary citizens in their neighborhoods. This alone provided the opportunity to socialize and develop a unique perspective on their thoughts and culture. Of this, I took great advantage.

For one small example. I was having dinner in the Latin Quarter of Paris the very March afternoon, several years ago, when the riots were erupting at Sorbonne University, only 5 blocks to my south. During that evening and the next day I spoke with many citizens and friends I have in Paris and got the full skinny on the riots. What the American people got reported to them by the lame stream, liberal media in the U.S. hardly resembled any of the real reasons for the uprising.

This is but a small example of the 'travel' I refer to, available only to the travelers living and working among the people. I can share far more about many other nations including Greece. Last summer I was in Athens when the international news was reporting about the Greek austerity program rioting. I walked right through the middle of the park in front of the government building the Americans were viewing on TV. The people were friendly and kind. That late afternoon the TV 'dish' trucks arrived with reporters, the police showed up and barricaded the streets, and the people went into riot mode. When the news trucks left so did the police and the square returned to normal.

I could give you 100's of more examples, but I'll leave it here for now. Perhaps you could share some of your world experiences. My nine examples above relate to the facts of things that have happened under this administration thus. The examples I used are items I know exist already under the socialist ruled countries that I understand. I also have a very good idea of what more we can expect in our future if we decide to continue on our current path.
