I think this is my next stop. I'm not joking. England has gone backwards whilst it seems to me the US is progressing. Everything has gone out of control over here in the UK. From immigration to our economy to schools to crime. It's not the proud nation it once was. Over in the US you seem to have more people of colour in power. In the UK it's little next to none unless you come from an "affluent" background. Yep American here I come.

Personally being from the United States, I can say that I love living here. Not to make it into a political issue, but I am a little ashamed of the government right now.

I have worked extensively there, and like the country a great deal.  Parts of it I would move to in a heartbeat.   There are other regions that I would regard as a slightly less appealing than Kabul.

The US was the best place to live for a long time.  Certainly for the 50 years after WWII-mainly because the rest of the world was either flattened by the war, or fell behind afterwards. 

Now, I'm not so sure.  Most Americans don't travel abroad, and have no idea how poor and backward many parts of their country are-even compared to some 'developing' countries.  The luckier parts of the country-New York, California, the Southwest, Florida-are going to get hit very hard by the collapse of the FIRE (finance, insurance, real estate) sectors-which is practically the whole economy in some places.  If oil prices spiked, or foreigners stopped financing our debt, things could turn very bad, very quickly.  Double-digit unemployment, hyperinflation, riots, martial law-these are all well within the realm of possibility.  At best, it's a long recession and a continued slide towards Argentinian norms-rampant corruption, sky-high inequality, boom-bust economic cycles, collapsing infrastructure and public services...even then, the US will remain a good country to live in-for the lucky or well-connected; but it won't be the country it used to be.

I agree with JR1 and RicardoDeSantiago (except US is far to be the most powerful country, Russia is and some more are in front of it, US just have more resources and the population grew because 20 years ago it was different) "numbah16tdhaha"... education is way easier and more simple in United States than it is here (maybe the high ignorance comes from there), also some peoples look for hot spots, Florida and California are popular among new folks who meet new folks, this is the reason. Plus the US money currency is getting lower every year, I wonder why?... it means more peoples going there to take advantage of it and then get the hell out of there in a few years (I actually know some peoples doing it right now) And for the same reasons (and more) that JR1 and Ricardo mentioned, I would never live in United States.

America has its vices like any other place. The biggest irony is that we are based on ultimate freedom and yet everything is so religious in such an oppressive way. We also see this concept of freedom by having really ridiculous crime and drug rates...i mean come on people! Racism is disgusting, and patriotism gets blown way out of proportion so much that it becomes neo fascism. However, it is a comfortable society that is kept ignorant of many worldy events (ignorance can be bliss). Our standards of living are among the best in the world and we are a rather rich nation. We have great products and services...but...i think our cultural flaws are really disgusting. (we are also really inefficient here with our SUVs and terrible public transportation system...and mad people are overwieght)

Just so you know; a majority of the people who take advantage of those who don't speak english or immigrants, are more likely to be immigrants, themselves. EDIT: I changed my mind; Yes we are all corrupt evil people over here, just waiting to stab anyone who enters America and is obviously foreign. The men will rape you and the women will kill you and we are all waiting to take your money. So, keep out, for safety's sake! ;)

I currently live here (I used to live in venezuela), and it is one of the most shallow and cold hearted countries you could ever imagine! They hate foreigners and are extremely ignorant about the outside world (some don't even know about their own country). It may the worlds most powerfull country, but it is not somewhere you want to live. People will take advantage of you if you don't speak english and there are are so law suits daily that it'll make your head spin! Not a good place to raise a family, specially with all the drugs in their schools. 4 out of 10 high school students do or have done marijuana and/or other drugs. America is also the leader in over weight people.

I sort of debated moving here for a while but then, walking around some cities I really did not feel safe at all. Some places you go, you feel like you could be brutally hurt by just about anyone at anytime. There are some exceptions though. America is not for everyone.

Happiness is 1,000,000 JR1's sailing east with a samjung23 under each arm. Get the hell out of here if you don't like this country, there's nobody holding you hostage!! As far at the little Nigerian in Africa is concerned, why don't you worry more about the self-inflicted slave trade and tribal genocide that's beeen going on in Africa for centuries. Or is the U.S. supposed to stop that too?

Ignorant, unrespectful and unwitting peoples. You can be proud of your country but I don't think the little Nigerian in Africa dying in the jungle cares, he wants your hand not your pride... USA is the country (obviously without bombs falling on them) with more crimes weekly. I can count only 4 persons out of 10 is caring about his/her health. USA is the country with the biggest National debt and they are not doing anything to help it (who cares uh?) They say they're the best but they're hiring foreign doctors, nurses, scientists and more day after day. They come to live here and everyone accept and respect them, if you go live there, you better forget the word help because it will be useless. I am not being mean, I am saying facts from experiences. Yes, there are beautiful places in USA like everywhere else in this world, but to go live there... you better consider it again and again before to take your decision.

My parents moved here with me 15 years ago. That said, I don't think America is a nice place to move to, even for a job. My dad didn't have to move here; it was his choice. However, I'm having serious thoughts about moving back to the Caribbean. The job situation is not great at all here, in fact, I'd probably have better luck at home. The people are depressing. I have had seen friends and family move here and turn into monsters, or become manipulated by the unscrupulous. Once friendly, open people in other countries turn into cliqueish, arrogant, over-ambitious, fake and greedy souls. The drive to make money overcomes common sense. The education here is appalling, from the lowest to the highest level. I don't want to raise my children here, lest they become shallow, rude, ignorant and vapid. To be quite honest with you, if I took over America, I could fix its problems in a year. The answers lie before them. I just don't know why the people running this country are blissfully running it into the ground, and why their constituents are allowing it. I wish I could say Bush is the sole problem but then again it goes way beyond that. Can't wait to move to a real country and become a human again.

I am an American and don't plan to leave, but there are many problems here. Hypocrisy is the basis of the government. When the nation was founded the slave owners said all men are created equal. Not much has changed. You are free, if you accept the beliefs of the people with the guns.

The nice thing about the US is, if you don't like the weather, the people, the accents, whatever, you don't have to move to another country. So, if I had to move to another area within the US, I'd pick Florida. It's an odd state (every other sign seems to warn you not to feed the crocodiles), but it's beautiful and warm. But I'd be more likely to travel around the States than to settle down in one place so soon.

I love the U.S. and have lived here all my life. IF I had to move to any part of the U.S. other than where I live now I'd choose probably eastern Washington or western Oregon-near the coast. The climate is good there-fairly mild and it's breath takingly beautiful.

What's with all this Americans are arrogant garbage? Just because most Americans love their country and are proud to show it doesn't make them arrogant. I'm sure those men and woman who were and are surronded by gun shots in aimed at them in wars so that people like Skipper could live here were humbled tremendously by the experince.

The US is the greatest country in the history of the world. Some may say that's an arrogant statement, and I can live with that. There are so many reasons why America is great, but consider this : Look at the millions who try to get here, some successful (too many) and some not, on a yearly basis. I would venture to say that if half of Mexico (all of Central America and Haiti for that matter) were given the access to freely move here, they quickly would. And who could blame them? These countries are corrupt, poor, and with very little opportunity for too many of their own people. Many of these people who are already here are hard-working and for the first time are realizing their life-long dreams. They come to America for a reason. At the same time, this country has more than its fair share of problems. America is a violent country compared to the rest of the world. We are concerned about the number of soldiers killed in Iraq, and yet more people will die in this country this year at the hands of their fellow Americans through acts of senseless and random violence. Where's the concern? It seems we are more tolerant of violent, small-time street gangs trying to control their territory than we are of Pres. Bush trying to liberate a country whose former regime was corruptive, terrorized and murdered their own countryman, and supported acts of terrorism for two decades. Our educational system is another concern. Our government, both Republicans and Democrats, have talked a good game but haven't played it when it comes time to put their words into action. Even more so, too many parents are apathetic when it comes to their kids' education. Where there is community support, there are good schools. Where discipline problems are tolerated and excuses are prevalent, there are poor schools. The family unit is breaking down in too many communities, common respect for one another is less and less, role models for our youth are not necessarily role models-these are legitimate problems that should concern all Americans. Generally speaking, the citizens of several other countries are more responsible and willing to be held accountable for their actions than many Americans are. Too many Americans seek excuses and avoid accountability rather than look within themselves for where the problems may be. Throughout our history, our system of government has been an example to the world. Both good and bad. Very few countries, particularly world powers, have strived to correct wrongs as America has. Slavery, discrimination, etc. Still, the American people insist our government to look within itself to uncover more corruption. It's one of the many rights about this country that separates it from the rest of the world. Rarely has a world power been so giving to so many countries in need. Rarely has a country sacrificed itself to help other countries defend themselves, sometimes right sometimes wrong as far as some are concerned. Above all else, we are a heterogenuous society as opposed to homogenuous. This makes us unique, and, above all, we continue to try to make it work. That defines our greatness.

Although I do really like the US, im not sure if id ever settle down there. Id like to spend about 2 years there. The people are really nice and the scenery, both urban and rural is amazing, but they have a strange obsession with guns and therefore an extremely high gun crime rate. I wouldnt bring up children there is what im trying to say. Also, they're not as free and tolerant as they like to think. I travelled all around the east of the country in 2002 which was great. Im going back this summer, to Washington DC for three months so maybe ill change my mind after living in the same place for a while.
