I am having an argument with my brother over this. He thinks, because the USA is able to conquer other countries, that makes it the better country. He is a brainwashed little shyt by my Republican father. He has never left my parents house. He lives at home, in the south of the USA with my father, who also has never left the country. I told him I'd rather move to Japan or Singapore and get out of this horrible country for good! I don't want to be here anymore! I have been around the world. I have studied other countries and their government (for fun). If my kids' father would let me leave this country, I would go to Japan and be an English teacher like I have always dreamed of doing. I know I will be leaving when my kids become adults. I understand being prideful of your country, but there is a limit where it just becomes ignorance. I am sick of that ignorance being shoved in my face on a constant basis. The people at work roll their eyes and say that people from around the world should be thankful that "America is so generous" when they speak about the USA going into other countries and forcing their views on the population. Really? Does this not sound like the conquering that other countries in the past did? Does it not sound like when Germany, Italy, and Japan tried to take over the world in WWII? Sure, the USA is doing it differently, but I am sick of the attitude! The USA isn't generous! It isn't going into these countries out of the goodness in their hearts! Really, do you think the USA is BETTER than every country on this planet? That the USA should be a central power to all of the other countries?

No, I don't think the US is better... nothing is perfect and while my husband and I are talking about moving to Europe when he retires, we will just have to see, because there are good things about this country as well.

  Not all people feel like you do. That doesn't make them brainwashed or stupid. It makes them"people who believe and love the USA" Difference is a good thing. If we all thought like you the USA would be fucked.

I enjoy seeing so many people saying the OP should leave.  It's honestly not that easy to get out of this country and immigrate to another.  :oP  If these people had any brains they would realize that.

Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

And while we're at it, since you want to leave and all, why not go somewhere where you can REALLY make a difference like Haiti or the Dominican Republic or India or gee, I'm sure there's several countries in Africa that would just love to have you over :)

America is far from perfect, but also a very good place to live.

I don't think any country should be like the USA.  It's a horrible country.

Not even close to being perfect and the real problem are those that think the USA is because they don't see that there are so many things that need to be worked on and fixed. They are the ones that stand in the way of those that would work toward a positive change. 

I think that we COULD be the greatest country on Earth but it requires having to admit our faults and change.

I have a list of countries that I would rather live in and once I am done with my degree and we have money saved up, our asses are out of here!!
