I am not moving anytime soon but I always thought I could live in one of these countries. I have a sister in Canada who is very happy there. Most anyplace has better and more available health care. I was in the US healthcare industry for years and I have seen so much I wish I hadn't.

Here's a list of other places in case someone was looking for alternatives and reasons for them.

The USA has serious issues providing untapered with, unpreprocessed, non-gmo, non-preserved / non-pesticide treated food (or in other words non poisonous food). I'm not sure how any country held down with a pandemic of serious illnesses can be #1.

Other countries may boast individual statistics, like the Nordic free education or what have you...but as a WHOLE, as a CONGLOMERATE, we are easily #1.

You have running water and medical access everywhere. Schools are everywhere. You can travel freely from city to city, state to state, and see different scenery, culture, and food that you can not do anywhere else. Just our land mass alone supports that. Tropical, Mediterranean, cold winters, mountains, farms, New England, progressive Seattle, you name it.

The closest to us would be Australia or Europe, but Australia is much smaller. Europe still requires passports to travel, and those are many countries, not one.

People may ***** and moan, self included, but there is absolutely no way I'd rather live anywhere else. I wont even travel outside this place, I have no urge to.I've road tripped 44 states of this place, and have no plans to stop soon. I'd say Colorado, South Dakota, and Tennessee were my fav's.
you have not traveled outside of US, but you know everything about foreign countries

The OP of course has a right to his opinion but it would be a good idea for him to at least read about other countries if he doesn't want to travel to them to see what else is out there. All he really can do is compare one state in the US to another in regard to where he has traveled.

If you haven't gone outside your box, you can't possibly know what the other boxes contain.

Whenever I see someone post something like this it just irritates me. If there is a way for you to comprehend how you sound it would be like me saying that:

My house is the best in the world. I have seen 20 of the 40 houses in my block and mine is my favorite. I will never travel anywhere outside my block because I'm convinced that it is.

It very well could be the best for me but that is a personal opinion and not a fact.

We could do without the 909, though.

Okay, so I applaud you for praising the good state Colorado. But...many places have things to offer that the U.S. doesn't (at least not as well). There's a whole world to see. Why restrict yourself to one country forever?
