Letters from Americans are kept on the American Perspectives page.
Well this is a cool site. Good morning America How are Ya...say don't ya know me I'm ya neighbors son...I'm the train they call...love that song ,thought Id introduce myself that way....
I was made in New Zealand , been to the States once and loved my time there....of course being in love with a certain American kinda helped....actually I met some very cool hardworking down to earth "real people"...not the silly plastic variety we often see portrayed from "Hollywood".....My Daddy used to say 'People are people" whatever they eat for breakfast" and when they get up in the morning they put their pants on the same way as we do...."one foot at a time".... America and/or Americans are just like me......They want freedom ,I want freedom ,they want their children to be safe ,so do I , they want a decent wage for a hard days work ,so do I....
Of course from the moment we are born we are all influenced by infinite details and influences throughout the years imprinted on our minds via our parents ,our environment , our culture, then comes the 'educators'...the media....and although many think noooo... we are not influenced by media ,its effects are often subtle but sure....personally I like the choices it offers or challenges......
So just to end I want to encourage fellow kiwis to open their minds and don't be afraid of "differences"....of course I don't like the "materialism" that America can take full credit for...but then I don't like the greed of the New Zealand Government either.....America cut the chord to Britain years ago....( over taxes..)...yet we still pay the Crown taxes as well as to our own government...hmmm...that sucks....when I voice that to fellow kiwis they become defences and proclaim how being a Commonwealth Country we are protected by Britian etc , um well they didn't do that to well in the last two wars....(.U.S.A) bailed us out.....cuz most NZ males were serving the British Army overseas fighting Britains war....thats Historical Facts...not just opinion either...
So for the criticism pointed at America I think we should clean up our own back-yard can ask no demand our Government quit sucking up and sending our hard earned taxes back to England!......Perhaps then our gas wont just be for the wealthy and our taxes will be lower......I'm so disheartened that New Zealand is no longer affordable to its own people but has been priced for the greedy and wealthy of this world.....
I look forward to experiencing and contributing to the American way of life again in the future., so fatten that turkey....Stay Safe America...and God bless Us All....

A stated on my weblog, I believe America plays a critical role on the world stage. For all intensive purposes, current "World Order" is stable and predictable in-part due, to the economic, technological, military and diplomatic superpower we know as the The United States. Whether acknowledged or not it is in the world's interest that the U.S. continues to exact its present worldly economic, political, cultural and military influence. An influence that extends to leadership in scientific and technological research and the production of innovative technology based products and services. Our democratic way of life, our economies and our national security, are irrevocably tied to a secure world order - an order, to which the present day United States is at the heart, as the pre-eminent driver of internationalism. Compare this, to the global instability that existed in the first 20 years of the past century and its link to the two world wars that followed.
My blog, although new, shall hopefully serve as a platform of advocacy for the continuation of American dominance because as stated before me, America must remain strong.
Just briefly, I also wish to add that I am proud of my Federal Governments unwavering support for America's war on terrorism.
