Everyday I hear something about American trying to enforce its rules on other countries. This has got to stop. Even if the Internet is considered to be international theres other areas where this mentality exists. The other day I was watching the news in America and everyone was talking about Canadas immigration policy. They were complaining that if you show up in Canada and claim youre fleeing from persecution you can stay and you dont even need ID. The news reporters were saying how insecure this is and how terrorists can just walk right into Canada and then right in the States. They were saying Canada needs to change this and Canada needs to change that. Well you know what, they might not have a very good immigration policy but nevertheless, its their policy, and they have the right to run their country the way they see fit. And Canada needs to stand up for itself and say hey, this is our country, we run it, not America. If American can just enforce its laws anywhere it wants, and it makes other countries change their policies at will, then dont other countries have the right to come in and change America around anyway they want. I dont think President Bush would be happy with Canada telling him how to do his job. And who are we to tell Canada that they need to change their policies when we cant control our own borders. Illegal immigrants come over here everyday, and America does nothing yet when its happening in another country everybody sits down and says oh they need to change that. This mentality is all over the Internet and always coming from America. This is just one example of many. The American Government can do whatever it wants but everybody else better ask how high when told to jump. If you want to enforce your rules in another country then you do it the right way. Declare war, and take that country over. The way its always been done since the beginning of man. However, if you dont want to start a war, then let them run their country the way they want. Pay attention to the news, most people dont realize it when theyre watching it, but if you actually pay attention there is usually at least one example of this every day.
