Comments on US v.s. CANADA

Sorry people!! I am in the middle of the test week at school, can't do much right at this moment due to piled assignments!! Here are some of the response I got from the viewers that I thought was intriguing (おもしろい).
以下次回解説致します!ご期待あれ!

Here is "JEFF"-さん

Tucker Carlson is an idiot. I'm saying that as an American.
The thing you have to remember about America is that it's a very regional(地域で分割された)country. It always has been. Don't forget that we had a civil war between the north and south and those divisions (分裂) still exist - it is like two countries with completely differing views, and it's split practically(実質的に) right down the middle (just look at the last two elections, both of which were decided by just one state). It is not like other countries where within each region half the people might feel one way and half another... no, there are several regions of the country and within each region 100% of people feel one way and 0% feel the other. (Ok, that's exaggeration, but you get the idea.)

That said, Canada is a country of something like 25 million people, America is a country of 300 million. So while Tucker Carlson may be an idiot and he put it in a pretty offensive(攻撃的)way, it is true that Canada does not have nearly the economic or political clout (影響力)of the US. It's just a fact. They have a lot of land but not many people; Japan has much more influence (影響) in the world, for example. Many US *states* have more people, bigger economies and even bigger military than Canada has (via their National Guard).

Here is "さぃ・・・"さん

it's funny and a little sad when people proudly proclaim their ignorance(無知であること). unfortunately Canada's becoming ever more Americanized that there must've been Canadians who took that comment way too literally(文字通り). have some sense of humour, peeps..

Here is "Pr0digalS0n" (放蕩息子)さん

Tucker Carlson is an idiot. Sadly, as other people have noted, he represents (代表する) the opinions that many Americans have, especially opinions that are nationalistic (民族主義的), racist (人種差別的), anti-immigrant (反移民的), and pro-business (ビジネス趣向的). Unfortunately, many people who currently run the government right now in the US also share those opinions as well. 2008 seems a long way away... >=P
