    It would seem that there are no borders in battles of ideologies. Its the difference between being susceptible to personalities that tell you what they think and personalities that tell you what you want to hear.

    It's because the US presidential election actually does affect the entire world. The president of the US has the power to affect relations between countries across the globe, and that's something that will affect people from the UK too. So it's not really "sticking their noses" as much as something they do have a vested interest in.

    Because that is what liberals do. They stick their noses in everything and up to everything that doesn't agree with them while ignoring the proverbial "log" in their own eyes.

    They are born hypocrites and liars and are drawn to liberalism because liberalism is the epitome of hypocrisy and lies. It has been called a mental disorder. Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

      Both conservatives and liberals want safe neighborhoods, quality education and healthcare, clean drinking water and healthy food supplies, good paying jobs, and safe borders. Their only difference is {how to} along with personal freedoms.

    Why specifically ask about liberals?  I've seen people from outside of the US be vocal about liking Trump and speak frequently about the election.  Seems the question should have been "why do people outside of the US like to stick their noses in the election process?" otherwise it implies that you're fine with those who agree with you voicing their opinions but not those who don't.

      Other than the accusation that Vladimir Putin is a big time Trump supporter I have heard almost no other foreign support of any candidate other than Hillary and it was the same thing with Obama.  I guess my circles are liberal even though I am not.

      It doesn't matter what outsiders say about Trump the question is specifically about liberals.So why do you want to control what is asked?Why question the questioner,it's what it is.Ask your own question or r you happier controlling others

      Michael - I've noticed plenty of non-Americans showing support for Trump.  I think sometimes people notice the opinions that oppose theirs more easily than the ones that align.

    The United States government wears the crown when it comes to meddling in the election process of other countries. It can be traced back to 1953 (Eisenhower was president) with the CIA in Iran executing TPAJAX the code name of the coup operation. Again, in 1954 (Eisenhower) the CIA was involved in the ouster of the Guatemalan leader. In 1960 (Kennedy) the United States supported a Belgian military to maintain business interests after the Congo was decolonized. The CIA was involved in the Dominican Republic in 1961 (Kennedy), South Vietnam in 1963 (Kennedy), Brazil 1964 (Johnson), and Chile 1973 (Nixon).

    Apparently, being nosy with the affairs of other countries isn't a liberal, conservative, democratic or republican issue.

      Excellent point!
      We have a history of meddling in other countries governmental decisions, polices, and even make attempts to overthrow governments by supporting one side over another with money and military aide. We're not on "holy ground" here

    My guess is because America is seen as leader of free nations. Our policies and direction of goals has more bearing on them than theirs have on us. We supply financial and military aide/support to allies.
    To some extent all of our allies including Israel want to influence us.

    Obama had Democrat operatives trying to influence Israel's election, deliberately influenced the Canadian prime minister's election and had people advising the Britain remain vote. That's worse than the British commenting on our election.
