    Hi Jerry and all,

    Yes, that rounds it up for me though !
    The worst enemy is the one within. That was my point in the message I
    sended across, if it ever will. Somebody on his list did mentioned it
    a policy is something existing out of thousands opinions, America is a
    country, like all others, existing out of millions of people, each one with
    their own ideas, thoughts, traits and habits, but where those others could
    distil something out of those thousands of opinions and ways of seeing
    things and built upon those further, moderate them, modernising them,...
    America did hold on to the believes of the first pelgrims and still stick
    to those.
    America never caught up with time, it is still stuck in the part of history
    where its beginning began. But you gonna argue, but see... look at America,
    it is modern, it has moderated its own existence,... yes !
    No ! America just moderated, modernised the tools to keep its beliefs
    in place. There is nothing really changed, America still sees the world
    from out the perspective of its founders. America is still holding on the
    values, commitments and habits of those people, maybe without realising
    it, but either way, IMO, there can only come harm from it, not joy !

    No offence intented whatsoever !
