That's fair, but your life might have been just as good or better elsewhere.

with my life. it's not perfect here but we are a malleable nation so we can adjust fast. I've had problems in my life but I have never thought of it as our nation being bad.

Those who feel that the US is the best, what are you comparing?

1 year, 11 months ago

America is not the best country to live in. pretty well every study says that. it's health care system, public education system, crime rates are all significantly worse than other countries.

I 'm from spain and I think that US isn't the best country In the. I think that there isn't any countrys that is the best

just like the US. if you are rich it's great. if you're poor you may as well just die in a gutter for all certain groups care. for example, the people trying to take health insurance from poor people.

usa is not as good as it once was. we used to be great look at us not rioting on the streets can't give your new president a chance. those other countries are falling apart because from socialism

how exactly does influence and political ties make a country the best?

Saudi Arabia has lots of influence and political ties from their oil money. they aren't going to appear on this list any time soon.

you guys are overestimating china. it isn't a big deal to grow fast when your underdeveloped. their incomes are rising and manufacturing is leaving. their gdp is starting to slow down too. did you guys really think it was just going to go on like that forever? even the poorest of nations are going to lose manufacturing as automation makes most workers obsolete. I've seen articles of other parts of the world laughing at us over our "bring back the jobs" and "China is stealing our manufacturing" this is a global worker crisis, and our ignorance of this, and our self pity is hilarious to most of the world. we really need to educate the people of this nation.

Norway has the highest HDI but still US is the best cause its more populated than Norway. So the govt. has to look after so many people. The US also has to maintain a big army. Norway doesnt have to. So still US is the best.

It depends on the criteria.

In happiness of residents, USA is not first.
In quality of life, USA is not first.
In life expectancy, education quality, health care, crime rates and many other metrics, the US is not the best.

The US is a great place to love, but without a specific quality or aspect to compare, I would disagree with saying it is the best.
