I am originally from Germany, but i was kidnapped by aliens, they did strange things with me, and now i use to tell people that i am from another planet although the aliens never told me what planet they came from. maybe that's because they neither spoke German nor English.

 

Btw: what strange tags you used for this? :D

I was born in Madrid and I lived my whole life on Madrid, I'm from a country where people sacrifice bulls as a tradition, where you can immigrate and have more duty than the native people. I'm from a country where people completely forget the economical crisis when "they" win footbal world championship. I'm from a country where 80% of teenagers are retarded and only think in fashion, drinking and sex (I guess this happen in all over the world). In my country we have the worst gypsys of the world, they steal copper from the street lighting, occupy abandoned houses etc.

 

I must say I love being spanish despite of that shap and I must say that if a spanish love his country he is considered fascist by other spanish people GG

greatest country in the world, United States. Being stationed in Italy (aka sh-italy) and travelling alllllllllllll around Europe has made me believe even further that the US is the greatest country in the world. Oh and not only am i from the best country, im from one of the best cities: San Diego. two for two ;)

^ We have a troll here, what do you have against Europe? Typical comment from an USA guy, no offense but you should learn more about your incredible and very pacific country before citicize Europe for example.

 

And please sh-italy? You should be careful about what do you say, italians are incredible people and very friendly, like any mediterranean person

Canada here. Nothing else special. We're neither like our southern neighbor and their capitalist frenzy, neither like the communist Europe. Just in between :P

 

But seriously, I'd really like to visit Europe eventually. I really like the way the European union works, and the fact that you don't have to travel for miles and miles to see different landscapes and cultures.

dont get me wrong, I have nothing against travelling around Europe. the US just does EVERYTHING better (except soccer.. even the EDM scene is bigger in the states now). And after living in Italy for about a year now, i have every right to say sh-italy. "Economy sucks? Whatever, ill still take my 2 hour nap and only be open 5 hrs a day." Absolutely NOTHING is open on sunday (worse than the bible belt, where you cant buy hard liquor on sunday [in the US]). "oh you need to know how much you owe for utilities/internet/cable? You'll get your bill in 2 months, maybe three, maybe five." Italy is beautiful to visit, as is spain, germany, slovenia, croatia, greece, england, ireland, sweden, austria, switzerland, turkey, france (all countries ive been to), but i would NEVER live in any of these european countries over the US. One day, you'll visit the US and realize that im right.

 

Learn more about my "pacific" country? LOOOOL what in the f*ck??? Have you ever been to the US?

The US is better? They still have the death penalty (ah sry, forgot this is an advantage), a healthcare system that is far away from working, prisons for people who do not even have the basic rights of a human being and every idiot is allowed to carry a gun.

At least you invented McDonald's...

 

Rly, what is it that the US does better? :D

 

and to add to residente: last time i was in US, i was asked if I ever met Hitler, lol

Only some states have the death penalty (which i happen to agree with), government should have no place in health care (typical euro socialist mindset), inmates have MORe than basic rights in prisons (where are you getting these retarded generalizations from?), and not "every idiot" is allowed to carry a weapon (who's the idiot? you).

 

Yes, there are idiots in the US. There are idiots everywhere. Literally the only 3 cities that european idiots know are compton, new york and miami. If i had a nickel for every time iwas asked if i lived in either of these cities, id be rich as fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuux. I do have to say that the mcdonalds that ive been to in europe are way better than the ones that i havebeen to in the us.

 

germany and england are the closest countries in the running that compare with the US. We are better. We have everything. Can you surf in germany? I can surf and snowboard in one day.

i can surf and snowboard in 1 day too. huh, and now, american? :D lol you really know nothing about europe!

 

and to keep your mind fresh, the prison i talked about was guantanamo, only god knows how many of these you got. ah and no, our healthcare system is not socialistic in any means. But in our countries you are not sent away at hospital if you got no health insurance. And yes, every idiot can carry a gun. I was in a host family in the US, the uncle of my host-sister bought an automatic rifle, and he had to show his ID card and was checked at police if he had any police record. LOL! Good to know that in EU you cannot just go to a gun shop and buy heavy guns by only checking your police record.

 

And if you really want to start making your country better, remember what happened to the germans when they thought they are the best in the world.

 

Every country has things it is good at, and things it is bad at. we in germany are good at building cars and our traffic system, but we are bad at patriotism and humor. you just come and say everything in the US is better, what you think you get for this?

In the U.S. there is a strong propaganda that they have the best country. Americans are taught from childhood to patriotism. But in fact the U.S. just all brainwashed. The U.S. has a huge money debt (crisis came from the U.S.), the United States leads/finance war. U.S. Just have a high opinion of himself .... My friend has lived in America 3 years and he was struck by ignorance of Americans ...

It is not propaganda that has spurred my belief that the US is the greatest country in the world. I have lived in europe, i have travelled to asia, i have been to central/south america several times. Your friend isn't "struck by ignorance"... more like he is enlightened by our superior lifestyle

As an American, I can say not all Americans are like that. Not even a majority are. You wouldn't blame all Germans for the actions of the Nazis, would you? Or all Italians based on the actions of Mussolini's group? Or Israelis based on Netanyahu's cronies? Or Russians based on Stalin's Communists? Not even all Nazis were all that bad (see Oskar Schindler). You can't blame the whole of the group for the actions of the vocal elite. You may not want to come visit based on the actions of the vocal elite, but know where the bulk of the blame lies. All nations teach their people patriotism to one degree or another. All nations have their vocal elite and even if they don't all act alike, they act from the same psychological source; thirst for the power of authority.

 

"There are 4 kinds of leaders.

The Despot, The Dictator,

The Beloved, and The Invisible.

The first seeks his own power first and foremost,

and is despised by the people.

The second wields power heavy-handed,

because he thinks the people need heavy leadership.

The third leads openly for the good of the people,

and basks in the praise he receives.

But the fourth, the best kind, is the leader who takes no credit,

and inspires silently so that all people will be leaders in their own right."

 

Paraphrased from the Tao Te Ching.
