I don't know what country you are talking about with small roads but in the county I live in the roads we have are far better than the ones I saw in the USA for sure. Then Again I saw a lot of second hand accidented cars in the US, here we use straight from the factory brand new cars that's for a country that produces lots of Cars and exports to other parts of the world.
A lot of you just come to type with your imaginations. If you haven't travelled between at least 3 great countries within the EU, Schengen and the USA you have absolutely no right to comparison.

Which country do you live in ? My friend other than the amazing social benefits most western European countries offer, Europe is trash. Everyone knows it. A foreign language other than the U.K., small roads, small houses, etc. The world revolves around North America and its culture. We all know it deep down.

So Europe is trash because it has small roads, small houses, And you almighty USA, where you can be killed by anyone including the police, killed by a drunken driver,be homeless overnight, is a treasure. Kwantinue.

Says Who

Your opinion about Democracy in the US as almost dead is definitely not true...believe it or not.

The Majority doesn't necessary speak for ALL...and that is why the Electoral College made sure that everyone's voice be it the ones from the popular or less popular States get to speak for them either through Congress or the Presidency.(Checks and Balances at Play)

I want to believe that the fore fathers of the US already foreseen that if they allowed just the popular or majority States to determine how the country will be governed then some people and States will be left completely ignored.








.@bolded,please can you define what democracy is all about??.
Electoral college doesn't fit into the definition of democracy where minority opinion rules.the Republican have always been the beneficiary of the EC if not they would have done away with it.
Besides,only Congressional elections are held every 2years while others are 4 and 6 years respectively.a lot of fortunes could have been affected either way within these periods.
Also there's nothing like checks and balances anywhere,the presidential election is the most important election in a democratic setting.

Do you have bad roads in the USA, YES or NO?
Do people drive faulty/accidented cars with broken headlights/rearlights, YES or NO?
Do people live in houses without heating YES or NO ?

How secure you do feel walking at Night, irrespective of the location.
Do you have a no go Neighbourhood, YES or NO ?

We can start our discussion with the afromentioned questions without emotional sentiments. I am comparing the USA with german speaking european countries.

So none of these things happens in the continent of Europe

I guess the continent of Europe is the new Holy Land. undecided
Re: Is It Better To Live In Europe Than In The US? by optimusprime2(m): 2:10pm On Aug 14
When the OP said "Europe", I am asking where in Europe??
Because different parts of Europe have their own aspects that can or can't be compared to the US.

For instance, Spain is a country in Europe as is Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Czech republic and Italy but I can never compare them with the U.S. because they don't come anywhere near the US on various levels.

However countries like Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and Sweden have their own advantages when compared to the US but also huge disadvantages as well.

Germany, France, Netherlands and Austria ... all these countries have their own perks, but putting up with a country as massive as the US doesn't make any sense at all, because what applies in some states in the US are different from others I.e Hawaii is an American state, but has regulated gun laws-concealed carry permits are not recognized.

So errrh. Europe is Unique but comparing it to US in terms of country singularity doesn't make any sense at all.

The number of American citizens who denounce due to FATCA are less than 2000 per year
The stats are there

And it's lack of understanding of FATCA that make people do that

I am an accountant, so I know the way around it

Offsetting the tax against taxes in your country of residence will make you pay nil taxes to US most times
Or something negligible (like if the tax rate where you live is less than the taxes in the USA )

I don t see FATCA as mych issue
You just need to know your way tongue

America has 51m + foreign born residents
That should tell you something
And I have also seen the stats of more Europeans moving and over staying in America
Than Americans in the entire European continent

What is democracy then? America preaches democracy around the world but hardly practices one.

European countries do call snap elections far quicker than America does typical example is the UK.

I can’t live in America, stupid gun law, no value for human life, no free health care then to make matters worse you have trump

Great!!

Not everyone will want and can live in the US...just as not everyone will want and can live in the UK.

As the saying goes "one man's meat is another man's poison" cheesy

No Country on Earth practices "free HealthCare" someone or something is paying very heavy for it either through taxes(indirect payment) or through out of pocket( direct payment of insurance). Any healthcare that is free(without it being funded for) needs serious questioning because it must be that most people getting such healthcare is being provided the bare minimum level of care. undecided

Now about the gun laws in the US...admit it has been experiencing some very weak loop-holes that bad and crazy people are using to cause serious harm to innocent people. It can't and will not remain that way forever...I am very optimistic about that. The sane and caring Americans( which runs in millions) value human lives to the max...however the sick and angry Americans care less about human lives...or even their own lives that's why in most cases you see them get killed by themselves or by law officers .

Now Trump at most can ONLY be President of the US for 8 years...and his chances of getting elected for another 4 years seems to be getting thinner by the day.

The US will be very Alright. No Country can do without the US even with all its flaws. cheesy

This I can't live in America has to stop,it's becoming very stale.no country begs other citizens to come live in their country and the US definitely is one of such.
About gun violence,why crying more than the bereaved??.the citizens right to firearms is as same as right to life.its in their constitution.let UK and other European countries have same in their constitution and see the effect.the law enforcements are doing absolutely their best to curtail the fallouts because in every 12,there must be a Judas.
About healthcare again,is there any prove to show those with free health care have access to better care than those who pays for it?.As I said,to each its own.
