Please stop with the comparisons between USA and UK! You can't compare the the 2 countries the UK is WAY too small to be compered to America. It's just not a fair comparison at all. The UK is more comparable to Canada, Germany, France, Australia (Midsize countries) It makes no sense to see people on this forum all the time compare a nation with 300 Million People, 57% White,a 16 Trillion dollar GDP to a Small island nation with 60 Million People, 90% White and 2 Trillion GDP. In economic terms you can only compare the USA to China, Japan , EU. It's so ridiculous to always compare yourselves to the United States. The USA is a hegemony Superpower with unrivaled political, military economic influence.

This map shoes why it's really silly to compare the 2 nations.

But the UK invented the USA, and they are the two most similar and most valuable countries on Earth, so I would say it is a fair comparison.

Lol, my thread was about living in both countries. It's perfectly possible to compare living in a larger country to living in a smaller one.

Comparisons come from differences, though.

The UK did not invent America, American invented itself and it's current form of government. The UK founded the 13 original colonies. 2\3rd of the USA was purchased from France(Louisiana Purchase) and the SouthWest from Spain\Mexico.

The philosophy which underpins the American way of life has its roots in Britain. The founders of the USA were British.

Aw, bless the little weirdo with his ENORMOUS inferiority complex.

Why else would they feel like they have to make hundreds of threads proclaiming a country's supposed greatness?

I like to refer to America as 'the colonies' to see how many people get ridiculously defensive :')

I totally agree, you can't compare the two.

We have better healthcare, life expectancy, sport, culture, education, and less religion, fatties, racists and homophobes.

UK can't be compared to Canada or Australia both countries has much lower population but both countries are full of natural resources. Other hand it can be compared to France, Germany, Italy etc. Unfortunately half of the Europe is in big economics problem.
