Re: Hello Everybody
I`m from Brazil but lived in Arizona and NYC for two years.
The worst problem for me during that time was that in the USA you have to buy the whole package: either you are a conservative and side with them in ALL issues (pro-life, anti-gay agenda, screw the poor, pro-war) or you are a liberal and side with them in ALL issues (pro-abortion, anti-war, pro-gay agenda, etc.).
Well, I happen to be pro-life, anti-gay agenda, christian, anti-Iraqi war, anti-imperialism, etc...so you see I couldn`t "fit" any group and felt totally isolated.
I am also a fundamentalist christian in doctrine who abhors the behavior of the christians in the US, the intolerance, the xenophobia, the lack of compassion, the politics. Boy was I screwed...
