Boening .....I agree some of your points while I disagree with other points. In my opinion, some of your points shift power from the federal govt to the States. I dont know if that is the solution. The Articles of Confederation, which was the first body of laws that governed the USA after the Resolution War, did actually that--give the power to the States. (I think that the Articles were ratified in 1781.) As we know, the Articles only lasted 7 years.
Aloges --and please I don't wish to be disrespectful ...why are you so critical of the USA since you live in a country where there is not even a middle class, full of corruption and thousands of Brazilians fleeing to the USA? I will give you examples. There is a section of Newark, NJ
called the Ironbound, where the Portuguese settled since the the 60's or earlier. In the last 5 years or so, Brasilians have invaded that area and continue to come. Why? Because of the Brasilian's economic and social mess. The same applies in NYC, 48th Street, btw Fifth Avenue and 6th Avenue, known as "Little Brazil." The Boston area is another example.
Reading these forums, I noticed that you are one of the members with tons of views and opinions about the USA lololol Please I do think that is great !!!! Now, I ask you --what views and opinions do you have about Brasil? obrigado por a sua resposta
