Hey, I want to discuss the pros and cons of our countries here. GF is pretty diverse, and I like learning things about other peoples countries which they live in. Please include pictures of cool places if possible, and pictures to that kind of extent.

Also, when naming cons, please don't involve other nations in your con. Like, "A con for England is that our PM is sucking Bush's tallywacker." None of that please. This post is strictly for your own country. I will name what I think are pros and cons of the United States, and provide pictures in a while. But I am very interested in your guys opinions on this. Include political stuff if you want, history, things like that.

U.K.

Pros:

me, our history, a good mug of tea, comedy, our relationship with the United States, freedom.

Cons:

the weather, national sport teams, taxes, petrol prices, in fact prices in general (everything is expensive here), the royal family, institutionalised racism.

Well, I live in the US

Pro's

-More freedom than any other country (that says most of it) -Richest country in the world -very diverse (which isn't that good IMHO, but most people think it is, so I added it to pro's) -umm...you can have guns here :) -public school system, no matter how liberal it is, it's still an educational system 8-\ -well, it's in the Constitution, that's what the pro's are vs. other countries

Now for the bad...

Cons

-We stick our nose where it doesn't belong (I'm not talking about Iraq, we DO belong there) -Americans are a bunch of people who are never satisfied with anything, and are always wanting more. It's the most discontent country I have ever seen. The hardest thing Americans go through every day is whether their soft drink is the right flavor, or if they hit all the red lights...and they STILL whine about that...Not having a fast enough computer (I'm guilty of this too). More people don't have computer than those that do in other countries...some people have never seen a computer, yet we take them for granted every time we get on them...We need to be more humble and appreciate what we have, and not dwell on what we don't have. -We have had total morons for presidents *cough*...(clinton)...*cough*

I think that's all...I'll probably post more later if I think of some more

Well, I live in the US Pro's -More freedom than any other country (that says most of it) You honestly believe this? The US has the greatest amount of freedom *if you have the money to pay for it*. -Richest country in the world Not per capita. Cons -We have had total morons for presidents *cough*...(clinton)...*cough* Glad you saw this as an appropriate time to make a political statement. If Clinton is stupid, Bush II is stupider.

i'd have to disagree. there are other nations who enjoy greater civil liberties than you guys do. hell, even we don't have a 'Patriot Act'.

With the exception of lack of gun control,which are the famed "liberties" many americans seems to think they are so very alone in the world to have?
