Arrow What do you think of America?

Ya know, when America was discovered and up to the 1950's, US was the place where everyone wanted to come. No doubt about it. Land of Free. But now, what do you think of America? We would like to know especially if you're not living in US.

America's political and militarism is crooked to me. I would rather live with the Aussie's or Brit's.

America's political and militarism? Hahahahah.

The US is one of the freest countries in the world, socially.

America is a great place. Lots of opportunities, one of the leaders in economy, and so diverse.

Aren't smart as a whole? Just because you say something doesn't make it true.

Yeah, but I can't help but feel a sense of corruption among american corporations....that and I think our country is a bit too arrogant. We kinda think that Democracy works among the whole planet, when it doesn't. Don't get me wrong. I love america, and I'm proud to live here, but that's just my opinion.

America is great i think, But i never say it's better than someone else's home land, cuz that's just childish & racist...But i'm glad i had a good life here.

There is some corruption in every country, in any company. But the corruption in this country is far minimal compared to other countries. Democracy works among the whole planet.. every single human deserves the right to choose just as much as you do.

Giancarlo.. what about some Amazonian tribe which doesn't have any technology, and like 20 members. They just get leaders who stay leaders for life. They really don't care for Democracy... they believe in their gods, so for them, they truly don't care about it.

I still no. Everyone has a damn right to make a choice. I strongly DO NOT BELIEVE ANY HUMAN WANTS TO HAVE RULE IMPOSED ON THEM. I'm not ever changing my views on that. That is a fundamental factor of my beliefs. The Iraqis obviously proved me right, overwhelmingly.

I have visited the us on several occasions and I liked the whole feel of the place, people were helpful and nice. However maybe if i was to stay there longer or visit a diferent place I would probably see the bad side!!!! That would be the same with the government, if i researched into it I would probabaly find its bad side, however every country has downfalls, I know that the u.k. (where I live) has an asshole of a prime minister!! Thats my two cents!

I've been in America a few times and it seems to be a cool country, however there is one thing that annoys me. (Several things really,this is one of them). Lots and lots of people in America are christians, and they seem to beleive inevery word in the bible, which leads to that a lot of Americans dislike gays and stuff like that. You don't come anywhere if you hate people.

David do you have a state that you had in mind ?

if i had a choice of city to live in: it would probably be LAS VEGAS...

That is one Mega-live city, and the all you can eat buffets for only $3.00 dollars, that's freaking awsome.

No wonder everyone goes out to eat in that city...

Well yeah, they deserve every bit of it. But, sometimes they don't have the choice because their situation doesn't allow it.
