Re: Swiss Euroskepticism

This is NOT a forum for Swiss people to get together to speak (write?) in English; it is a forum for English-speaking people living in Switzerland to discuss Swiss-related issues. Or not.

What makes you think I'm not American? Where would you think I'm from?

Okay, I now understand that I had incorrect assumptions of this forum. I am now looking at it with a new perspective.

If you want to start a cat fight, I can do that. But that's not my intention for this discussion.

If you expected the usual left-wing, I suppose not. But, on the whole, I find myself to be a person that encompasses a decent amount of what my country used to symbolize.

Look, sorry for saying America is a commanding power, seriously.
Do you serve tea at your parties?

Why would I want to do that?

Don't tell me you're one of those woolly liberals who calls Indians "native Americans" and believes in emancipation for negroes?

You disappoint me.

I would have thought that all my conservatism would have given away the American in me. But secession can also point toward the people of Quebec as well, I suppose. Also, perhaps y'all didn't notice that the background of my avatar is a Texas flag.

I was trying to be sarcastic about the gross miscalculation, but apparently it was a correct assessment.
Sorry. I'm not used to Americans "doing" sarcasm - or irony for that matter - I've only witnessed it happening successfully once or twice in my life. Your comment was quite correct about you making a gross miscalculation though. HTH

The depth of y'all's sarcasm is truly impressive, I must say.

You're not a conservative! You've already said you are in favour of "civil disobedience". That puts you in the same box as Martin Luther King and Gandhi in my book.

I bet you don't believe in proper law and order and the authority of a rightful monarch ordained by God, either, do you?

You're practically a communist, as far as I can see.

A commi? Now that's funny!

Read a history book. American was founded on civil disobedience. Also, y'all have misquoted me for the 20th time now. I did not say I "favor civil disobedience". I said I am not entirely opposed to it.
