Grzegorz,So your going to tell me that someone who is not from the same country has the same understanding of that country and grasps every aspect as well as someone who lives there?
There is no yes/no answear to that question, It depends on persons involved, discussed issue etc. Do you think a German expert on international relations by deafult know less about foreign policy of America than some average Joe from Nevada, just becasue he doesn't live in America ? Do you think I know less about US economy than Jose "no speak Americano" wash disher, who made it into Texas several months ago, just because he lives in the States ? Or maybe a Polish cleaner living in London has better understanding of British monarchy than British "expat" living in Poland ?
Besides, I am Polish and have been living in Poland nearly all of my life, don't you think I rather have a better understanding of this country than a British "expat", who's been living here since 4 years, is not fluent in Polish and has had no other job than teaching English ? Would you support me If I start to use this argument against "expats" ?
Since years, there are conflicts on this forum between people (mainly "expats" living in Poland) with liberal/"internationalistic" (of course until their country of orgin is criticized) views and those with more conservative/"nationalistic" approach (mainly Pol-Ams after most of Poles got fed up with it and left) and "you know **** becasue you don't live in Poland" is their latest offensive weapon, It's becoming almost as boring and irritating as the busia nonsense. If you still don't see it then I really don't know how to help you.
as from what I've read - the US Polonia tends to vote Democrat.
Ah... so after 200 posts full of nonsense about American Polonia being nationalists, racists, anti-semits and what's not, you finally discovered that they usually don't even vote the GOP ? Fascinating. Perhaps some apologies now ?
