Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here in the States we would call it "neo-conservative"

We call it that, but we're incorrect.  Neoconservatism is a foreign policy view.  Neoliberalism is an economics view.  (There's also "neoliberalism" in foreign policy, but when the average person hears the term, it's usually related to domestic economics.)

Anglo-Saxons aren't even the plurality in America today, judging by the fact that Catholics are the plurality in religion.  It's traditionally been a very WASP-dominated country (still is when you look at the presidents), but America is far too diverse to lump under the Anglican label.  There are probably more Latinos and Blacks than there are Anglicans these days, anyway.  Practically every American has blood from another race (just in case you needed another reason to find racism to be incredibly fucking stupid, or needed another way to piss off your racist, Deep-South neighbor, which I find to be quite an exciting sport).

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
