I feel angry, I feel helpless, wanna change the world. I feel violent, I feel alone, don't try to change my mind.

Society blind by color ... Why hold down one to raise another? Discrimination now on both sides Seeds of hate blossom further The world is heading for mutiny When all we want is unity We may rise and fall, but in the end We'll meet our fate together

========== In Reply To ========== I dont see how a set of questions could be any more up front and direct. I actually was shocked to see the results. I thought more Americans were war mongering than this poll shows so far.

I agree with Dan on both points. The poll doesn't seem to be biased and most Americans do still feel the need to press in the "war on terror". We still do not have justice for the attacks on our country. We should now turn our attention to the other countries that support and harbor terrorists. That means that we need to confront countries like Iran and Syria to make sure that they are exterminating cells that reside within their country and we must force the world to pressure North Korea (who proliferates WMD more than any other country) to immedietly desist in any nuclear related production. We must stand firm and united, as these cannot be negotiable.

I only pray that we do not have to use force again, but we must be prepared for that possibility.

Posted in Was the atomic bomb a good idea??? on 2003-05-18 21:02:13

I hate to bring you back to reality, but it seems to me that you are the ignorant one. The "bomb" wasn't only a good idea from a scientific viewpoint in which we have developed the world's best source of power, it was absolutely necessary. Anyone even vaguely familiar with world history knows that the German were trying to split the atom at the same time we were. Consider how your life would be under the rule of the Nazi Regime. Moron.

========== In Reply To ========== Its official! 56% of people are incredibly stupid!

The Atom bomb was probably the worst invention in the history of mankind (even worse than monarchy). Even the scientists who had proposed and developed the idea quickly renounced it once they realised how catastrophic its effect would be to humanity.

OK, maybe you see it as a necessary step in the progress of our past towards the present day. But the existence of such a piece of technology is in no way (that I can see) beneficial to anybody.

Anybody who was upset and disturbed by the massive tragedy on September the 11th can hopefully appreciate that this was much, much less horrific and upsetting than Hiroshima or Nagasaki. Had a nuclear warhead been present on the plane it would have wiped out most of that island (whichever island it was) that those two towers were on, rather than just going through a few windows and then letting shoddy building standards do the rest.

You say that polls report 70% of Americans supported the war effort in Iraq. This seems close to accurate in my personal circle of friends, family, and acquaintances. Although, it is likely higher in the other parts of the US where immigration is not as high (the south) or where patriotism is high (near military installations).

It is very unlikely that you can ever use a poll on this site to gauge public opinion in the USA. There are way too many ignorant people who frequent this site and believe they actually make a difference by spamming your polls. It's almost as if they believe that they affect popular opinion. In fact, they simply function as a detterent to Americans who might participate more often, yet realise that polls on this site do not reflect reality.

I would be willing to bet that the misterpoll community, when compared to the internet community as a whole, comes nowhere close to reflecting the percentage of Americans online. In other words, the votes you actually get are not Americans at all, but people from other countries who think that these polls actually matter.

Something to consider if your really interested in how a sociological group feels about an issue and try to use this site as a tool.

Posted in Why is soccer the best sport ever? on 2003-05-17 22:39:33

========== In Reply To ========== Soccer is, without a doubt, the lamest sport ever. I'd rather watch GOLF before soccer.

I agree completely.
