For those of you who live in other countries, how do you feel toward the United States?

Since I don't travel much from my home near Los Angeles, I often wonder how others feel toward America and Americans.

    America has done allot to progress science, culture and politics in the last century. I think allot of people are very quick to judge America and maybe won't realize how well they played their role till after their current stint as world leaders is over. I hope that their legacy of democracy, egalitarianism and freedom of speach lives on in the next phase of global society.
