To the Captain USA: Excuse me, Captain, for my opinion, not people like you will make the world better. You and socalled "patriots" still try to pull your country back to the past. Is it patriotism? SezWho2 is right, "everyone loses if McCain wins". Another your posters: "Contakts of Dick Morris told him, if Obama wins Israel will attack Iran, causing a possible WWIII. This is why decent freedom lovers are voting for McCain". (Posted in "Across the globe, Americans gear up to vote" 10.31.08). "Iraq, we will leave when we deem you are safe and the region is secure. NOT before!" (Posted in "Iraq wants all U.S.troops gone by end of 2011" 10.31.08). So you are ready to spent millions of dollars more and (how many?) lives of Amerikans for their socalled "freedom"??!! It looks like REAL PATRIOTISM! You deserve to be a general, why you are still captain? Didn't you think you can wait this "BEFORE" all your life while those american soldiers DIE in this SENSELESS war FOR NOTHING ??!! This is not what your country needs...

I was surprised to find such a famous columnist of “Human Events. com” as Ann Coulter amidst the readers of JT. But I don’t recognize her style of writing. Are you really Ann Coulter? After the very popular “Obama: Lucifer Is My Homeboy” -7721 comments ,09.17.08.(http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=28597), “If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans” etc. in Human Events , her “Black persons who will vote for Obama because of his and Powell's color are being racist” (JT, 02:00 PM, Oct.20) looks very modest indeed. Usually, her readers curse their opponents and send to hell those who oppose them. Very strange for people who say they believe in God. Who can tell me why Republicans are supported by the most aggressive sort of people in America?

I have never written to JT before, but I have been following various discussions for over 7 months now. For me, it’s very interesting how Americans perceive events happening in their country. Regarding the discussion about socialism… I grew up in a socialist country. I can tell you about socialism as I remember it:Low taxes; Free college education & free health care (we didn’t pay any money for either); Virtually no unemployment, no homelessness; Government working with the labor unions, not against them… It was the best time of my life, and most of my countrymen think the same way. We had a feeling of security and protection. We were not afraid of facing an uncertain future. There was, however, one “but”… The wonderful idea of socialism was destroyed by talentless leaders who were always abundant in our government. In the end, unfortunately, one guy, from the peasant class, got an education in the best university in the capital, became a lawyer, a member of the government, and then the first President of our country (all of this had happened and was possible under socialism). And then he went about destroying everything in the country, everything that was created by the hard work and enthusiasm of millions of people. Now you can see a different form of socialism in Sweden – it will appeal a bit more to you. It is different and it is working this time around. Regarding the fears about establishment of socialism in the USA – I want to give a quote from Newsweek magazine (Oct. 27, 2008) by an American citizen from Maine: “… Despite what free market capitalists assert, the current economic debacle demonstrates that capitalism doesn’t work for the common good unless it is regulated. Regulation levels the playing field between the relentless pursuit of profit and the need to temper it with some humanity to provide vital services to all citizens. Our economic system is not based solely on capitalism, but is a blend of capitalism and socialism. Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, and public education are examples of government-run social programs. We need to restore the balance between unregulated capitalism and reasonable regulation that keeps business from its excesses if we are to have a just society that works for all”. As for elections, I am very sorry I am not able to vote for Barack Obama as I’m still not a citizen. I don’t think his “socialist” leanings will harm America. Electing him President will be a hard blow to racism, most dangerous of all displays of cruelty and inhumanity. I think it is still the main objection that people have to his candidacy. Choosing him as the next President will strengthen the authority of USA around the world. With all due respect to the military accomplishments of the other candidate, I can say only: He is a good guy, but in the wrong time. Choosing him as a President will be a step backwards for America… I hope Obama will become the next President of the United States, but at the same time I worry…
