Horray, Europe likes them because progressives, whose ideals originate from European thinkers, are transforming the American system into one that more resembles Europe. Of course they love us. People were always jealous of the big brother America, and now they are elated that big brother is suddenly turning around and modeling himself after little brother and giving all the other siblings a chance to "be just and equal". But next door neighbors like China, Russia, and the Middle East don't give a flying shit about the family affairs of the western household. If big brother is not taking charge anymore, it makes it easier to pick on the western siblings and jack them for their lunch money, and are comforted by the fact that all of the siblings will now have equal amounts of money since they are all forced to share equally. Heck, they get to be the big boys on the block now! And little Iran has always had that grudge against former big brother America's good friend Israel. Now he sees his chance to beat him with a baseball bat and be done with him once and for all. Oh, what a happy neighborhood.
