I voted other for Europe. I think European power elites have successfully sabotaged the United States over the centuries. Constantly working at the US, undermining its policy, constitution, and peoples will to fight wars for them. Then denounce those same wars publicly. Lastly the US has been divided and put up for sale among European corporations and the bonds sold off to pseudo enemies.

We have modern day European Crusaders. From the ricefields(Korea) or whatever, to the jungles(Vietnam), and to the deserts(Afghanistan, Iraq). Just like back in the old west days. Except now the war games are larger, they have more military toys, and a much more effective propaganda machine.

When the King of Spain is financing a privately owned highway right through your backyard, and your parks are designated "world" sites you know you've been taken to the cleaners.

NYC by a landslide.
The question was influence.
LA's influence centers around Hollywood, which in my opinion, is embarassing. The fact that there are many people who are influenced by Hollywood is a sign of our societal woes.

What? Translate that in English, please.

If you weren't aware, this poll was rigged by an LA idiot. Funny, even with the 25+ false votes for Los Angeles, New York is still very close and would be winning by a lot if some desperate fool did not cheat.

I hear people talk like they're from Iowa. That's the accent everyone wants to have these days. I suppose Des Moines should be an option on this poll.

No Atlanta, when it has its own cable empire and is home to Coca-Cola, UPS, Home Depot, Georgia-Pacific as well as many other big corporations? Weird. I'll take it that it was an oversight?
