Look to me america would be the last country i would want to live in, couldnt put up with all the advertisment and patriotism every god dam day. Now
not to say we dont have any advertisement in australia, we do have plenty but no where near america. Anywho i will firstly agree that australia does
depend upon america for militray back up, we dont spend no where near as much on our defence funds. So our government tends to suck up americas butt.
So does this one tribute, that a country has a large military give it the basis for the best country? I dont think so.
Firstly the one badist thing about amercia is its gun laws. We are a fully civilized country over here, there is no need for guns. Not to say some
criminals have them, but they are very hard to obtain which reduces the amount of killings alot. Farmers are still aloud to have their rifles, and
anyone over 18 can obtain a gun licence and get most single shot guns, no semi-auto or auto weapons are aloud, and no handguns.
Next america has been known for to go to to make money, but business and the economy are a very slimsy thing, there has been plenty of depressions in
the past. So at the moment the EU is on the rise, and from the amount america is spending in iraq and the cost of oil going up, i believe the america
giant will be able to sustain itself much longer and will fall into a reccesion. Then the EU will become closer affiliated, and will become a super
power in the world along with china. These are my opions by the way your more than happy to disagree.
So after those things put to the side, what lefts? I do not see any difference between australia and america. In healthcare we are higher, our
econmy is on the grow, where i live, melbourne was rated the "best city to live in" the world last year, and we are also in both of the previous
U.N. ratings. Also as quoted by the cool bud smoker also, we do not have very tight marijuana laws, melbourne is the strictest out of all the cities
were it is not legal, but cops do not enforce the law on it unless you have alot on you and you are intending on stealing it. Plus no jail time, you
jsut get a fine.
So look im not saying australia is the best country in the world at all, becasue we do lack in certain areas aswell, we have the highest teenage
suicide rate, we are the biggest users of ecstasy in the world, we have very little national pride, or care in history since we have none, we are only
a young country of just over 200 years. Most people dont even know our first prime minister, and to be honest i cant remember off the top of my head.
lol And the speed limits are ridiculous! 50kmp on streets and 40km in school zones, this really pisses me off....Anyway Im planning to move to england
soon for a few years, and maybe live in Amsterdam
for a few years then move to ireland and spain and hopeful italy later on. See the world and
Look america, your country is good im not saying its bad. It just doesnt suit my tastes. To me america is like a old trashy whore, past its prime and
wearing lots of make up and showing lots of ass. But hey youve sleep with one trashy whore in your life? LoL All im trying to say americans, is be
open minded and rethink all the propaganda patriostism that they pumped into when you where kids. If you think that it didnt happen to you, rethink it
and see if when u tell a child santa claus is true. He will believe you no matter how ridiculous it is. Hey if no one every told u santa claus existed
wold you still believe it? Maybe not, but america is ridiculousy bad....your a good country, so believing that your the best is easier to believe.
Anyway enough of my ramble, i just hope that i helped open one programmed person to come to their logical thought.
By the way cant be botherd checking for spelling mistakes, sorry if there is heaps...kinda stoned.
