    Everyone is rightfully entitled to their opinions including realjockers from other countries criticizing America. Americans not dominated by religion and morality? you could have fooled me on that one given many Americans stupidity by voting for politicians that are allied with these religious right wing radicals.

    I am a UK resident, but I have traveled around the world, including the USA during my lifetime. You can say that the USA is the greatest country in the world, I can say that the United Kingdom is (or was) the world's best, and the British Media (with bias) still rate the UK as the best country in the world with its former global Empire, heavy industry and the invention of the National Health Service, an idea dreamt up, I think, by Prime Minister Clement Attlee around 1950.

    In fact, the UK has its own shortcomings - crappy climate, overpopulation - especially in the London and Home Counties area of the Southeast, (where I live) emphasis on social class, hypocrisy among politicians, the bonus culture among bankers bailed out by the taxpayer, the wide gap between rich and poor, failed company and public executives receiving Golden Handshakes, greed, frightfully expensive public transport, (trains mainly) general bad or botched organising, health & safety, the Political Correct brigade, drunken violence in our city streets, the yob culture, drugs - even among the respectable middle class, crime and a lenient justice system, and the decline of religion (Christianity).

    No doubt there are very similar problems in the USA as well, but having visited America five times since my first visit in 1977, I loved the natural beauty and the diversity of this huge country, especially the Grand Canyon and southern California.

    My point is, every country has its good points and its bad points. There are some countries that are better than others. I for one, would much rather live in a country governed by Christian principles than to live in a Muslim country. But again, if I had unlimited choice where to live, I would love to live in a country where there is some fine sunshine weather. I'm sick of the constant soggy, gloomy summers here in the UK. This leaves me with a choice of two destinations - California or Australia. They have a national health service in Australia. In the USA, health bills are very high.
    My dream would be to have a citizenship in Australia, and a second property in the San Diego area for vacationing.
    I can dream castles in the air, can't I?

    Nice message, and enjoy hearing good things about my location. We get many European visitors to our beaches and other local attractions in southern California.

    I think there should be a protocol on international websites that permits specific criticism of aspects of another's country, but I think when discussing someone else's country, there should not be general bashing of the country and the criticism should be made in a respectful way. For example, you could be highly negative about some aspect of the UK using language that would not be appropriate for me to use.

    I've been to Holland, France, Canada, Mexico, Etc...
    but none of them compare to home sweet home.

    I think it's funny how people in other countries think we're mind controlled in America, as if Obama has a remote control to make us become zombified or something. I don't understand it. I was just having a conversation with some gay Englander(UK) the other day who basically stated americans are all brainwashed. Yada yada yada..like seriously?

    ive been to america and mexico several times, driven from miami to back home, 3200 kilometers, so ive seen lots of the country. in most parts it resembles my own province ( farm land, forest, grassland, etc.) I wud not be opposed to moving to america if it were right for me, but i wud always be Canadian at heart, and always be a Saskatchewanian. Home is home, for everybody. and wherever anyone travels, they tend to look for similarities between where they are and home, to establish comfort and familiarity, and to compare, and try and rate why their home is better. Because everyone thinks that they have the best place to live. Now granted, i live in a city thats in a tie for highest violent crime rate in Canada, and in the past decade held the murder title for a majority of the time. But i still love my city and think its beautiful, i still think its the best place to live in my province, and in my country, with the exception of Vancouver, lol. I respect that Americans think their country is the best, and have extreme pride in their country. I have the same for my country. I think the thing that everyone needs to remember is that stereotypes are not accurate, and that when someone tells you your place is shit, and theirs is the best, well, how do u think you'll respond?

    America is controlled by religion and morality - now as far as the morality part I'm not sure what country's laws are based on basic morality - but indeed America (specifically the U.S. ) is ruled by religion and more accurately we are mostly governed by the Christian faith. Not that I have anything against Christians. I'm just saying...it's true.

    Absolutely true. The US is for Christians, and no one else. And they will tell you so. The politicians, the media commentators, the majority of the people. So I think we can put that one to rest. Hell, most Americans believe in Biblical creationism, and reject evolution. I mean... DUH!

    Only about 40% of Americans accept the science of evolution.

    Enough said. icon_cry.gif

    That statistic can't be accurate! IT JUST CAN'T BE! The sadness.

    Actually it's more than 40%, and I said "most" which means more than any other view. Here is a site that gives some insight:

    http://www.religioustolerance.org/ev_publi.htm

    1982 to 2004: Gallup polls:

    The Gallup Organizations periodically asks randomly selected American adults about their beliefs on evolution and creation. They have conducted a poll of U.S. adults on at least six occasions between 1982 and 2004.


    Most Americans in these Gallup polls (consistently in the mid-40 percentile) believe in pure Creationism. Another group in the upper-30 percentile believes in a divinely-directed version of evolution, where life started from Creationism, and then experienced a kind of "guided" evolution. Less than 15% of Americans have ever expressed belief in pure & natural evolution.

    Hence my statement about "most" Americans believing in Creationism versus evolution is correct. If less than 15% of Americans believe in naturalistic evolution, and all the rest believe in Creationism or a blend of it, I don't see how you could say I am wrong.
