I prefer United States, because most of countries colonised by United Kingdom are not at peace

Lolo GB Observer (9 months 6 days ago)

Born in Ghana from Italian/English American parents, lived in Germany/Tokyo and other locations, Studied in various European based Universities, Speak fluent 5 languages and traveled extensively.I believe to have acquired an understanding of Cultures and locations to state that the USA as a larger Continent offers a greater quality of life simply based on its size and multiculturalism. However in terms of quantified historical events the US has less to offer vs the UK or other EU countries.But their young constitution is a great example on how Countries could have built on. The UK Magna carta instead is as controversial as the use of it. Unfortunately Media & Politics are creating division and confusion to isolate Nations and cultures. But despite negatives and positives, I would at any time (given the financial opportunity or invite) relocate to the US to live a life of choices which, as a family, we don't have in the UK. Perhaps I m wrong but that is my educated opinion.

I don't hate UK,but I prefer US. I like more US lifestyle,landscapes ,and... even US accent haha :) Anyway,both are way better developed countries than Romania.

Some of the utterly ignorant and inaccurate comments made on here by Americans pretty much proves the point. UK = better quality of life (based on real data and fact) US = blind ignorance.

The United States is just too dangerous and the crime there is very big compared to the UK. The education is not as good as the UK's and the police in America aren't trustworthy because they sometimes kill criminals instead of imprisoning them. America is also at a risk of Donald Trump becoming President which would be terrible and there are a lot of terrorist attacks. The country is very big so if someone does something illegal it will be hard to catch them within the population. So there's no contest between which is better. It's obviously the UK.

The only thing that's better in the UK is our sense of humour. The USA has better food, weather, roads, patriotism, thing to do, cars, job and opportunities. I could go on but 1000 symbols won't be enough!

Nkrumah Pride GH Voted for United States United States (2 years 2 months ago)

Have to say I like USA a bit more, at least they did not colonise Ghana for centuries.

James GB Observer (2 years 3 months ago)

Well, the Yanks are all Brits anyway.Pointless argument both are brilliant and I would happily live in either one but, because of crime and freedom of speech and religion, racism etc I think Old Blighty wins this one

UK is no more. US Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 4 months ago)

Let's let the Russians have the UK and Europe... I'm sure our Limey friends would love us then if their country is fixing to speak Russian... Like it or not, but the USA guards the UK from Russia... I hope to God and pray that America leaves the UK and Nato alone forever... I hate the UK and its people because I can't visit a thread without a Limey singing in, a wanna be know it all.

Machine US Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 4 months ago)

The UK is a welfare state. Also, the UK leads the World when it comes to drinking... UK: bad teeth, puny Island, bad weather, Islam, bad teeth, and act... At least the USA is big enough to explore... The UK would make me feel like I'm stranded on a deserted Island... Also, a majority of Brits will never visit the USA because they're too stuck up.

Mr California US Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 4 months ago)

The UK is now an island full of bad food, bad weather, and radical Islam... If the UK was a US State, it would be 48th and one of the poorest... Hence, California has an economy on par with the UK...

AmeriKKKa is lame.

Arthur GB Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 5 months ago)

The United Kingdom is better than the United States of America. The U.K is a much safer place to live as a whole. Gun crime in the U.K is incredibly low compared to the USA's, due to the fact that it's illegal in this country. The U.K also has considerably lower rates of racial discrimination and prejudice in the country, which cannot be said for the USA; (Baltimore, Charleston etc). Obesity levels in the United Kingdom are much lower than the U.S. Also, our sport is much better as a whole. Football, Cricket, Tennis, Rugby and currently Boxing and Swimming are all sports in which Britain has been or currently is better at than the United States. Oh, and not to mention your appalling political system as well, due to the fact Donald Trump is actually allowed to go anywhere near a campaign to become "Leader of the Free World". However, if I were to take anything from America, it would be their incredibly deluded sense of patriotism. Long live the queen!

Josh GB Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 6 months ago)

erm...we colonised the Continent of North America alongside France when GB was already thousands of years old- there is no competition i'm afraid

Person GB Voted for United States United States (2 years 7 months ago)

Hang on..... Aren't Americans British anyways.... They are British people (Facepalm) lol

Guy GB Voted for United States United States (2 years 7 months ago)

Im British but I would prefer to live in America over Britain. I love the UK but I dont think the Leaders of the UK love me or anyone who is English anymore, I'd prefer to live in America where everything is bigger and better! If I had a choice when i die, i still want to be buried within the soils of Britain but I think Britain is a sinking ship at the moment with the immigration and I personally feel like I want to get off before im brought down with my beloved England. I love the patriotism of Americans and I wish Britain was like it. US have done great things but then again so has Britain. I think the authority of Britain cares more about money and immigrants than they do indigenous Brits, therefore I want to leave to a country that sticks up for their people. Donald Trump for President! WOOP WOOP! :D

Joe GB Voted for United Kingdom United Kingdom (2 years 7 months ago)

Guess what America... You were our empire, your ancestors are British. Stop bullsh*tting and embrace the fact, you f*cked us over. We were the best country in the world until you rebeled, I mean Jesus. Stop going on about our teeth, it's a pointless stereotype and I'm pretty sure you could find just as many yanks with dodgy teeth aswell !!

jack GB Observer (2 years 7 months ago)
