Canada

Pros:
beautiful landscapes (aside from central Canada)
freedom
the world actually likes us
we are on top of the U.S
wealthy
good health care
pension plans
awesome beer
great winters and equally great summers
very little racism
peacekeepers
cheaper education than most countries


Cons:
Quebec won't stop being gay by wanting to break away from Canada
Most of our industries are American owned
lack of a decent military
exchange rate isn't great
things are more expensive
Canadian movies are terrible and not many good music artists come from Canada
not really taken too seriously on a global scale

I agree with alot of those

I live in Canada and it's the best country, ever.

***PROS***
Super friendly people
Very liberal overall and people are relaxed
Lots and lots of green space, Canada has an average of like half a person per square KM or something
A fairly far justice system and an effective law and punishment system
One of the worlds best quality's of living
Everyone loves us
Toronto is the most culturally diverse area in the world
Toronto village
Our beer doesnt taste like water
18 / 19 drinking age
Our military is actually quite well off, we are the worlds second best trained military. However we need some equipment upgrades.

***CONS***
stephen harper and the conservative party of Canada.
It's coooold
The French are too cocky

haha yeah that's actually what i meant by 'lack of a decent military'. We've got good training but just not the best technology to go along with that. But as far as I'm concerned we are doing fine the way things are.

Not that I'm trying to start a fight here...

but prey tell... what country has america pwned lately,
afganistan? iraq? vietnam? somalia?

Um... none of those, and most of those (second/third world) countries have pretty much zero military strength what-so-ever...

who's army = pathetic? anyones 'cept americas?

if you're so much better than anyone else, so much better trained, experianced etc...

why was/is america fighting so hard to try to get countries to join up with is colilition then if you reckon that you're so much better than anyone else suerly you could have done it on your own?

why is it, american soldiers shoot more of their own (as in own side) compared to anyone else,

why do more american soldiers come back from war with psyciological problems more than any other nation?

why is it that the might of the american army needs to stop technological development of other countries that might see the emergence of new super powers?

these questions are all pretty much rhetorical by the way... I can see that browserjoe is too blinded by all this patriotical bull that gets in the way of a lot (not all) of americans trains of thought these days...

never mind... (unfortunatly growning up dowsn't help as many adults, in fact more adults suffer the same condition).

I generally find poeple that make statements like that have never been out of country, and if they have it was to some americna resort somewhere they were completely utterly sheltered.

I've traveled and I must say America isn't my favorite place to be.
