You are right Gary. The original americans (except the native indians) were all high liberty fans with anticonforming opinions who escaped from Europe where their ideas weren't accepted. Among these people who escaped from Europe you had for example:

- all people who were rejecting the very conservative catholic church domination. That is why in USA you have that many evangelic communities or sects ... in America they found new spaces where they had freedom to exercize their different beliefs
- some adventurers/conquerors/entrepreneurs who were pissed off with the very conservative habits and closed minds that were leading the European culture with very little open-mind for new things. In America they found new spaces and freedom to realize their desires and ambitions. That's why in USA you are much more business oriented and don't look at failure as a catastrophy but rather as an opportunity to stand up again. This is the origin of capitalist predominant spirit in USA.
- people who have been judged as criminals or have tried to make their own justice in Europe who get banned and were unable to re-insert themselves in the society. They found in America some spaces where nobody knew them as criminals and could rebuild their life in freedom. That is probably also the origin of this "loaded gun at home is freedom" mentality that most americans share

Etc...

 It shows American kids watching the vid and there are also a couple of Republican kids in there. Probably the ginger boy is Fairway. 

Is that an insult?  :P

Certainly not. Don't you like ginger hair or muscled athletes? That's what that bloke has and is. He won't be mocked, that's for sure, so it's a compliment to Fairway :blink: B) :)

No no Lo, not about hair, but "Republican kids" , although to be accurate that would be "Conservative kids" anyway  ;) 

 

(as GOP is nearly as bad as the Democrats, if not as bad, now)

"Conservative kids"

Oh right, yes, that is what your doppleganger is. Soon he'll play in the NFL. And you can be certain he will sing the anthom there, Fairway. Trust me. He will. True story.
