Thanks a lot Dangus! This is a great explanation! Well be ensure that the above "why so many people..." had a tongue in cheek kind of humor...A bit crude and of bad taste but like you saw, some people answered with great post making me understand why some are simply bashing without necessarily taking pride in it... That was my bad!
And be sure i am always sincere in my forms of politeness (always), but i can have a weird way to express myself, as i am not yet perfect in English and i understand that...This is why you don't see me posting direct insults against people, i don't believe in that...
Also i should change my nick because it leads to confusion! "Astoundedlib" stands for astoundedliberty...should start to write some stuff in my account information!!
As for the passive aggressive thing, i am a business man...i deal everyday with the US, and i can tell you guys are the best for that, and that is actually one of the best strategy in the sales world, so somehow, even if some might not like it, it's a way to express yourself in a right way.
As for the purpose of this site, if you take a look at all of my post you will find that i am actually "open minded"...By that i mean that if somebody gives an irrefutable arguments, i will now give it a lot more thoughts and accept it...So i might give as much pro conservatism argument as much as dems or libs...As the typical Canadian, i am not one sided in politics and i don't judge somebody over his political belief (not saying here it is better this way)
So there you go, and like i said i hope we might have interesting peaceful debate in the near future!
Oh. CANADIAN. Well, perhaps the cultural gap is not SO big. Hehehe.

Well, please don't take this seriously, but in the states, being told one has the personality of a salesman is definitely NOT a compliment! On the list of least respected professions, I kid you not, "used car salesman" ranks below "crack whore" (a prostitute who trades sex not for money, but for crack cocaine), and just above "Crack whore's legal counsel." Mind you, some of the people answering such surveys may have a slight sense of humor.
Again, I do not mean to demean your profession; the world does need salesmen. I'm only saying that a salesman's persona is not necessarily the best persona to take on when dealing with Americans on a personal basis.
