I am an American, but I voted EU, because America has been the world's only mega-power for the last... 15 years. And we havn't done much.
That's a very good point, Sea Cadet.

Australia is so secluded from the rest of the world, you don't have to care about infiltration, no borders, maybe just those illegal immigrants from one country named Indonesia
Whats Australia's population like? I think its about 1/5 th of Indonesia which is 4 times smaller in size than Australia
Now one can then imagine how sparsely populated Australia is, sure anyone would be relaxed and have a great time if they were born in a country like Australia
imo there are not just enough ppl in Australia to have a significant influence on the world
You have a beautiful country and it has remained like that only because of its seclusion, I think Aussies should be contended with that
We are content. I believe that the population to land space ratio is about 1 person to every 2 square kilometers. Pretty good ratio if you ask me. Our population is approx 20 million people.

Although you say we may not have a big enough population to a big influence on the world, we are the most militarily, socially and economically advanced nation in our region. That is more important. If you have an over populated 3rd world country, you cant really be a very good influence on the world now can you.

It's a different world now. And there's a lot of things going on. Things didn't change overnight on Sept 11th. It was changing over the past decade and people were simply oblivious to it.

Yeah, i.e. South America, Drug control, the US has it's hand in almost every major political treaty or military conflict
As you can see, the US was doing stuff, people just didn't care until September 11th.

Aussienick is right. Everyone should just act like Australians they're the number one absolute friendliest and greatest people i've ever met.
