Is America the best country?

United States Batteries 
My opinion. Currently? No For it's size? Yes Historically what it has done? Yes Currently we are a divided country where every state south of Oregon has some issue related to crime, homicide, and schools (You know what I am talking about) but every state North of that generally has low crime except for mainly Detroit, Chicago, DC, and NY. For our size we have created a great country. Free healthcare and education would not work in America as it does with smaller countries. We have the best system for a country this size. Historically we have been a great country if you pretend we didn't take over the Native American lands. seriously besides that we were the main leaders in ending slavery for good (mostly), civil rights, ability to stay out of wars in the homeland, and being a safe place for religious freedom (Until now but I don't want to get into Islam and shit. Just quickly I think what Muslims do towards gay people is just terrible) That's it tell me if im right or wrong im tired so im probably wrong

full on free healthcare and education wouldn't work at all obviously due to the mega high price of implementing it but at the same time, our education and healthcare still need a full revamp regardless. Universal healthcare can work if its only state exclusive from my POV but for the whole country it really wouldn't.
2019-02-22 03:53
+1 agree with it all i think
2019-02-22 04:04
Ever considered that $600B dollars goes to our military? Using a small fraction of that we could improve education and healthcare, and still have by far the most powerful military in the world

That money can easily be used for something else cause our politicians are retarded ofc, and mismanagement is more likely due to massive greed here.
2019-02-23 19:01
Yep, it’s really sad to see. I hope our next president does something about it, because it’s just outrageous. The US also needs to stop getting involved in other people’s conflicts.
2019-02-23 19:05
americans complaing about spending too much on military. they will literally heli lift you out of iraq if u are kidnapped by terrorists every country sucks americas dick because they are scare of there Military and it goes to help americans like you have cheap gas and perfect security
2019-02-24 00:52
Maybe cut down the budget of your military (your army is already at least 5x larger than your closest rivals' armies), and wire the money towards better funding for educational purposes (free educational system) and much cheaper and readily available healthcare (or free healthcare even, you guys are pouring absolute stacks into your military and fighting wars you really dont need to). It would just require a huge change of mindset from you guys and it would be a very tough process to get the nation aboard with. A lot would be against it, definitely. Even cutting down your military to only be 3x as large as your closest rival, you'd still easily remain the largest military power in the world. On top of being backed by NATO.

I'd like to see our military budget cut by a bit but its something our politicians seem to refuse to do.
2019-02-23 19:14
nationalpriorities.org/budget-basics/fed.. sitting and reading this (from 2015), seeing how much of your Discretionary spending is going towards military and not education and/or the medicare & health, is actually quite sad. So much money going towards the military, when its really not necesarry, and it could be used to properly educate more young people. Might just be me who feels like that tho
2019-02-23 19:35
Nah plenty of americans would want to see money going through issues we have right now, but ofc our retarded politicians hold everything back over conflicts with each other like Democrats with immigration and Republicans with healthcare.

no. Also I never got the size argument against universal healthcare. Works in the EU but the US is too big?
2019-02-22 04:09
Too many people in US
2019-02-22 04:11
So?
2019-02-22 04:12
Not gonna work nationwide but it might work statewide also there’s many rules and regulations between states and many other reasons
2019-02-22 04:15
Yes it does work nationally, it's called medicare.
2019-02-22 04:18
Taxes the hell out of people. Lots of people are stuck in a financial zone where they make enough to have to pay for medicare/medicaid but make too much to get these benefits. Bug reason as to why it gets alot of hate.
2019-02-24 09:55
more people = more taxes... this stuff works on the basis of per capita and gdp.... size and population is largely irrelevant. the us brings in more than enough to fully fund healthcare and subsidise education nationwide; they’re just overly obsessed with having a military budget as large as the rest of the world combined, yet haven’t won a war in 75 years.
2019-02-24 01:19
It works in EU because EU isn't just one country, EU is split up into a bunch of countries who can run healthcare on their own terms. The US is 1 country and it would be extremely difficult to replicate on a national level (maybe on the state level but not national) what EU has done with their healthcare.
2019-02-22 04:49
make it on a state level then
2019-02-22 15:30
yeah but then it would become a shit show as some states would have different opinions on how healthcare should be run and it would be very difficult to control it all
2019-02-23 06:31
You're just one of the parasites that need big daddy government to take care of you and censor online "muh hate speech" you don't like.

If you knew your history then you would know that the Soviet Union didn't start winning until AFTER the United States sent them vital supplies.... If the US never sent those supplies then there wouldn't have been a Soviet Union to push the Germans back in the first place. Edit: Here are my sources rbth.com/business/2015/05/08/allies_gave.. rbth.com/defence/2016/03/14/lend-lease-h.. historynet.com/did-russia-really-go-it-a..
2019-02-24 00:49
You know that we could also say that there would be a good chance that USA would not even stand a chance to win the war If Soviets didn't drop like 20million lifes?
2019-02-24 03:50
16 million Americans served in WW2 (NOT COUNTING aid from the Canadians, British, France, etc) VS 18 million Germans served in WW2 (only ally was Japan but they weren't fighting in Europe, besides they had their own problems after the US bombing, Italy dropped out) No chance eh?
2019-02-24 09:52
Truth is US was not even close to being ready to go to war against Germany in 1939. Germany was by far the strongest country back then, more than USSR. US was able to stay out of war for 3 years and build it's army while millions were dying in Europe and billions of dollars were being burnt. If US bordered Germany in 1939 it would get butt-raped and outclassed easily. People are delusional that the US was always the strongest and baddest even before WW2, this isn't true. It's just that they suffered the least during the war and were able to gain a fuck ton from it, to become the strongest.
2019-02-24 14:36
You can say the same about the US bordering Japan, we would've been butt-raped and outclassed if we tried to take mainland Japan. But we didn't take mainland Japan. We dropped 2 nuclear bombs instead so a projected million American lives wouldn't have to fight tooth and nail in Japan. If worse came to worse, I don't think the United States would have hesitated to drop one on Germany.
2019-02-24 19:28
US didn't have operational nukes at that time as far as I know. This technology was very secret at the time and very much untested and unknown. Highly doubt they could bomb Germany at that point. Anyways, obviously none of this matters, history has already been written.

Yes and look how prosperous the countries that fell under the Soviet union became. The soviets won the war in Europe and broke Germany for sure, but The US was definitely vital for Western Europe.

They broke the Germans after we sent them vital supplies. The Russians were running out of food, ammo, etc Edit: Here are my sources rbth.com/business/2015/05/08/allies_gave.. rbth.com/defence/2016/03/14/lend-lease-h.. historynet.com/did-russia-really-go-it-a..

That has pretty much no relevance to what I said lol. Supplying the enemy of your enemy is just an obvious strategic maneuver considering Germany fighting a war on two fronts was extremely favorable for the later invasion of Normandy. The aid from Western countries may have been underplayed to serve communist agenda after the war, but here's a quote from your own source: "That the Soviet victories of late 1941 were won with Soviet blood and largely with Soviet weapons is beyond dispute"

I wasn't disagreeing with your point, I fully understand that yes, the Soviet Union was the main partaker in World War 2 but I'm just trying to say that the US did help them in outlasting the Germans with those supplies. If you read those sources then you would know how significant the Lend-Lease Act was to Russia.

Last month i break my leg, i was transported to an hospital by an ambulance. In the hospital the made an XRay and transfered me, by ambulance, to another hospital to make a surgery. I paid nothing! One of my best friends 5/6 years ago hurt himself in Paris during vacation. We gone to the the hospital a he had to make a curative, 2 days later he had to change is curative in the same hospital. We had the European health card and in portugal when the bill come he had to pay 15/20% of the total! I live in portugal Nordic countries are more developed than us (by far) but you can be sure that me as Portuguese want my country in the future to be more like Norway, Deutschland, Denmark, Switzerland than like the US .

But healthcare cant be the only reason that your country is better then mine. The reason our country is at the top and better then Portugal, Denmark, and Switzerland is because of economic, political, and military reasons. OK maybe not education or healthcare but more and more families don't care about that and have moved on to more religious or gender specific way of learning and do have the money to still live good lives like me. Don't forget that the US has almost an average of 10x the population of many Euro countries and it has been that way for so long.

The history of your country is based on destruction, are you proud of it? How many developing countries are not affected by US imperialism? Every country that does not align to your interests you find a way to destroy it. Countries in South America experienced horrific dictatorships that came to power with the help of the United States in the past. Is this the wonderful story of your country? Is that where your pride comes from? The wealth of your country comes from the suffering of others.

That depends on the perspective , and u kinda need to define what do u mean by "best country " Most powerfull country ? Then yes -without a doubt - But you also should be the most powerfull country- given your History and Geographic and geopolitical position. Best country to live in =? Most certainly not . Name any Category that realy matters and you ll find another western world country that is at least as good as yours. Lets say you have no affiliation to any country , and you have to choose a country to raise your kids in, USA would have a hard time to enter top 10. IMO the most powerfull Nation - thats basically allied with 80 % off alll other powerfull countries - should also be a leader in " making the world a better place " . But since the 2. ww Your country is way more often part of the problem then part of the solution. If you look at what your country could potentially be and what it actually is then you are srsly underperforming. And the Size -or amount of diff. staates- is not a reason for universal healthcare not to work . Just add that to all the other things that are already controlled by the central goverment.

Fair enough, each to their own. But current affairs usually articulate past encounters very well (history). I am not mad, far from actually. I am listening to Vivaldi four Seasons.

Yeah, I am not saying they didn't. He just questioned what US did in history. And ultimately, they ended the war.
2019-02-24 01:05
The US ended the war??? You talking like the US single handedly won ww2
2019-02-24 01:08
Canada deserves so much more credit from the US for what they did in WW2. "6 June 1944, the 3rd Canadian Division landed on Juno Beach in the Normandy landings and sustained heavy casualties in their first hour of attack. By the end of D-Day, the Canadians had penetrated deeper into France than either the British or the American troops at their landing sites, overcoming stronger resistance than the other beachheads except Omaha Beach. "

No... Especially on international affairs... Your country is responsible for lots of bullshit in the rest of the globe. It was created as a supposedly land of freedom but is nothing more than a neo colonialist power.

The US history is too short to call it the best. And you put billions into your Military even though you already so far ahead. How about spending some stuff on healthcare, education,.. Also for me the worst thing is how politics work in the US, either you are liberal, or conservative. Completly stupid. There are so many topics and you can have so many different opinions on stuff. For example just because someone is for high taxes doesnt mean He is against strict Border controls.
2019-02-24 02:24
Currently? It ranks with the best countries but I wouldn't say is the best Historically? hell fucking no. That either goes to UK, Italy or Greece.
