Canada and USA are very similar countries, however there are a few key differences between them. In this thread, I am curious to see which people view as a better country to live in.
If you are Canadian, don't just vote Canada because you live there, and vice versa. Take the time to think about the pros and cons of each country, and feel free to elaborate.

Myself, I find Canada to be a better country to live in for various reasons including:
- Free Health Care
- The Soon To Be Legalization of Marijuana
- The Fact That The Majority Of Other Counties Hate Americans.

I see no distinctive benefits to living in the USA.
Feel free to explain some.

It matters where in the US. California is better than Canada, while Kentucky is not.

I enjoy being an United Statienne sometimes. Canada does have free health care, though...that's kind of cool.
When I look into your eyes, you help me realign, and show me just how to be myself inside...I'm in control of everything; it's taking time--but that's okay. I can bring you to my side...you're my blessing in disguise--you're mine; you're mine. You're my blessing in disguise; you help me realize just how and where I want to be years from now...

I heard that Canada has lowered the penalty for possession of marijuana to a simple fine if it is a small quantity. And are debating lowering it further.

However, I doubt we will take it to full legalization, since US doesn't want us to, and for the most part, US government has their yankee hand wrapped around Canada's testicles.

But who knows. We already stood up and decided not to go to war, so maybe we won't give in this time.

That's probably true. I'd never live in canada, I've been there enough to know it's not my scene. There are more states in the US, like California, that are better then the whole of Canada to me.

Who cares if marijuana is almost legal? Really, grow up. If you are too much of a pothead to avoid getting caught in this fucked up country you dont deserve to live here anyway.

oops, there goes half the population.

Having lived in both... I find that the US has way more pro america propaganda. It seems like every book of matches, every quaint bungalo, every moist towelette package has an american flag on it.

Also, there are MacDonalds' fucking EVERYWHERE. Within two blocks of each other.

I personally like Canada better because it's more vast, and you can drive somewhere and forget yourself for awhile. In the US I'm pretty sure there are very few places that you can drive for more than a half an hour without getting more than five "Next Exit MacDonalds!" or any signs like that, just the regular signs telling you how far the next few towns are. You can appreciate the scenery.

The United States has too many accents. In Canada at least we have an excuse for the accents, because our country is huge. Canadians can tell people who are from the East Coast, from Quebec, and the rest pretty much sound the same.

I hate the US currency. Seriously, everytime I buy something with a 10 or 20 dollar bill (nevermind the annoying same color shit) and lets say it's four dollars in change, I have to have four dollar bills. How annoying is that? I could have two coins instead of that in Canada. Plus my changepurse is so less useful now.

Y'know, you still have to have a job to get that. It's not like anyone who skips into Canada can just say "Oh! I broke my leg, fix me and I won't pay you because Canada's cool like that!" No. You have to have a job that specifically has healthcare on it. Then you get reimbursed.

The title of this thread keeps summoning images of two sumo wrestlers with the Canadian and American flags as their diapers....
But the U.S. is awesome, and it still has potential to become even better. Noting that some things this country does is fallible, but on the whole it's a great place to live.

Most canadians I've met suck. The only ones I've met that don't suck have lived in the US most their lives. Aside from a few online people who I never got to know well enough to see their true suckage which Im sure was massive. They seem to be cooler online than off.

I remember when you actually made amusing and intelligent comments.

If the crap like this I've seen is any indication, I was obviously sadly mistaken in my judgements.

It's funny how Smokey just passed judgement on a few million people based on the select few he was conversed with. Ridiculous, really.

personally, i find both canadians and americans to be just as diverse and strange.

so, if someone was canadian, i wouldn't think of anything about it, because i don't really care. my english teacher was canadian, she was a bitch, but still, so were all my other american teachers. it pisses me off that people let one person from an entire group to represent an entire country.

I love you.


It's true that most canadians I've met bore me. However that's just my experience and there you go. I don't hate canadians but It's really not my type of place. Also it's true that most of the canadians I've met online turned out to be cooler than the ones I've met in RL. So I mean hey, that's what I've seen.


Dani says:
It's not even a big deal.
Dani says:
The Americans I knew in Canada were pretty much all assholes.
Dani says:
That's like 95%
Smokey says:
yeah well all americans are assholes you guys are right about that much
Dani says:
But I lived by an air force base, so there were always americans there, but they were also in the military, so they were just arrogant pricks because of that, not because they were american
Smokey says:
no, really, we're all pricks

Quoted from Stormraider:

I don't know if it's any indication or not and I don't give a shit about your judgements.

California is basically an improved Canada with more warmth. Fellow Californians I know generally hate Bush's policies, and the state is probably the most anit-Bush in the nation.

So, even though I've only seen Vancouver, Canada's nice. But, I really don't know which to vote for; the US could be much better if we had a good president, like some politician whose name escapes me who is a major candidate for the Democtatic ticket; he wants to try and adopt a health care plan similar to Canada's plan, and he wants to get rid of Bush's tax cuts for the rich to fund this. Not only that, but I heard he's also pushing for better education... unless, of course, Lieberman is already doing such a thing.

Canada is not just a government/economic system.

Why would someone assume that it being cold here is a bad thing? Without the cold we wouldn't have such great resorts for skiing and snowboarding. We wouldn't have the adapted animals that we have, and we wouldn't have the vegetation that strives on our climate. Just because somewhere is warmer doesn't make it superior.
