49. I'd agree that america is better than some countries,
without a doubt.

but I'm not from some 3rd world country, or from some assbackwards hole.
I'm from the UK.
I do know this, no one country is perfect, to compare the US to other 'enlightened' democratic nations, honestly, while they are very different, there isn't that much to make one better than the other. Just different. Different strokes for different folks.
However, one of the things I do detest about living in the US, is the arrogance of some people. Its one thing to be patriotic and proud of where you live, but another to become arrogant about it. That in itself is a very 'anti-British' trait. Thats one of the traits of Bush, that serves to un-endear him further to the world.

I feel things would be much better in this country if more people could accept responsibility for their failings, and their countries failings, and begin to work to put the right. Its the 'we do no wrong' or 'its not my fault' mentality projected by not only Bush, but by so many in the US, which is severely hampering any ability to improve things.
