    Amerika, according to some people

    That's how write it in Dutch and German :p (probably Swedish etc. as well :D )

    You won't have me, however, becuase I plan on moving to Europe

    cool where?

    And isn't that what I pointed out in my long discription back a few posts?

    yup

    Nothing more to add.

    Both Germany and The Republic are nice examples how a goverment turns into a dictatorship

    Everything is possible...

    The U.S. could easily become a dictatorship . . . not with GWB. Look back when FDR was president, he was in office for 4 terms. FDR had so much power, he could have easily taken control of this nation with little dispute. The people loved him. That's why all these emergency powers granted to the presidents should be monitored more closely.

    He was elected for four, but served only a couple months of his fourth term. Also, he had his share of Republican opposition. Had D-Day been a disaster instead of a victory, things might have been different in the 1944 election.
