Lucrum made me wonder about this the other day when he and Gabfly were sparring in the most recent (you-suck-no-you-suck) thread in this forum. He mentioned Gabfly was Canadian, which I gather is true since Gabfly acknowledged and accepted it. His overall argument was essentially, why should you care so deeply about American politics, our President, etc., if you're not even living in America (though his words were a bit more uncivil)? I thought it was a rather good question. So I went through to the most vocal critics of America, Republicans, Conservatives, etc., and I checked their IPs and did a rather extensive lookup. Of the 10 most vocal in the P+R forum, only TWO were definitely posting from the USA. One was using a proxy, so it is impossible to tell without a lot of homework. One was posting from India. FIVE were posting from Canada. One was posting from the U.K. What shocked me is the number of Canadians, some of which are exceptionally vocal about the Teaparty, Conservatives, Republicans, and the US in general. I am going to look up those conservatives who are vocally against Obama next. I won't post who is from where (for either side), because that's a private matter. But I'll be general about it like I was above. I did find it interesting that so many non-Americans are here supporting the democrats. I admit to not understanding why that is. If someone would explain it, I'd certainly be interested in hearing.
