    Not financially we aren't, just look at the Bush budgets and show me anything conservative about it, your great grandkids will be paying on that.

    Europe is not one country, it is a continent made up of many different countries with different governments. Many of the countries in Europe are more socialist than the United States, and that is why they are having economic problems. In France, Nicolas Sarkozy is now trying to model the French economy after the United States because capitalism works.

    Europe is 48 different countries with different positions and beliefs, i dont think you can refer to europe as a whole in this context.

    I do not think of the U.S as a particuarly religous country compared to any european countries or canada.

    I would say most countries are more conservative than the U.S, the U.S is the only country to try and force its beliefs, way of life and system of goverment on other countries.

    Europe's liberal ideologies are costing them their freedoms. Look at how Spain and Portugal are going belly up due to the lack immigration policies that they have. They are paying the price through increase crimes. Same with France, Belgium and England.

    The USA's conservative principles on control of immigration is keeping matters in check. We don't want to go the way of Spain.

    Whose the superpower and who isn't? Seems being conservative and having beliefs in a higher power that you are accountable to actually has some bearing.

    specifically in what way ?

    I wouldn't say more religious...especially since your saying Europe, as if it's all one country.

    That's not a bad thing... European countries are pretty loose on the rules. The drinking age in Germany is as soon as you can lift your own drink....
