    Brain Teaser: Who Likes America and Who Does Not ... And Why

    Coming out of the Bush 43 years, out of 44 countries surveyed the vast majority had a poor opinion of America. Today, that opinion has been reversed.  Of the 20 countries listed, 10 fall in the bottom of the dislike group and 10 in the top of the like group.  They are in no particular order.  Can you sort the top and bottom 5 out?
    1.  Pakistan
    2. Italy
    3. France
    4. Germany
    5. Russia
    6. Kenya
    7. Vietnam
    8 .Bangladesh
    9. Ghana
    10. Egypt
    11. El Salvador
    12. Israel
    13. Lebanon
    14. Turkey
    1.5. Palestine
    16. Greece
    17. Philippines
    18. Jordan
    19. South Korea
    20. Tanzania

    I love America and always will.  I am American born and raised, and while I don't always like the American government, I do love America deeply.

    I think my question got lost in the paragraph.

    What I am looking for is you thoughts on the 5 countries who like America the MOST and the LEAST out of the list provided.

      MY-Tried to avoid this, thinking there may be a more current response--no. Founding "Principles" =Bill ofRights=Individual Freedom, Free enterprise. All things must be interpreted to those "principles" or they are lost.

    I think that there may be different Americas for different people, as ones perception may differ, will differ, from that of another. Certainly, America today is not the America contained within the American Constitution. And that is America. What others may or may not think does not speak to the integrity or character of the 'principle', That some may vote to the benefits received from a corrupted entity is not a complement. That some may vote out of envy or prejudice, is not a compliment.
    A more valued census of thought might be to those who have an  understanding of the essence of America, which is the Constitution.
    All in all, what matters is not what others think. What matters is what I think.

      What you say is very true, but, like a man, America is not an island.  It must be well thought of in the world in order to 1) survive and prosper  and 2) reach and maintain those goals you correctly write about.

      My-I think we speak the same language here. Do you have respect for one who maintains his principle or tries to buy yours. Living up to the Constitution is, I believe, what the world wants to see, which has been the greatest contribution to Man.

      No question about it.  If we could do what you suggest, then I think the poll would be hard pressed to find even a bottom 10 where the score was more than 50% disapprove.

      The question always is, however, the interpretation of Article 1, Section 8.
