    Jimbo, why do you like doing these inane polls? There are much better ways of getting thought-provoking posts out of people. Half the time people have to preface true substance with "I don't like these choices" and then go from there. Please contribute instead of create more and more polls that are just, "which one is better?" and then never provide any input yourself to "further the discourse of the forums." What common ground do we have to compare these? Saying one country/organization is better than the other is a subject that can't be summed up in one or two quick sentences. Forums don't mesh well with soundbites.

    There's no better country in the world, I think every politicians in the world are corrupt.

    Default silly response to a silly question

    "i like the EU because they dont hav crapy presidents...an d beacause all the countries in the EU make desisions 2gether and are more united than the united states"

    You're a funny man. The EU hasn't figured out how to separate federal powers from state. They have a 400 page constitution that attempts to federally legislate minutia. Is it any wonder it's failing to be adopted?

    Besides that the question is one of preference -- does one prefer to live in a more dynamic, semi-capitalistic state or in a sclerotic semi-socialist state?

    To each their own. I prefer the US

    I´ve lived, by now, almost half my life in both. I prefer the EU. Much higher quality of life.

    Interesting observation; to make the same claim, a USA protagonist would have to substitute the phrase "standard of living". A not-so-subtle distinction differentiates the two: Quantity vs. Quality.

    I see the difference every time I travel.
