USA = trash culture, family dysfunction, highest divorce rate in the world, feminist man bashing culture, some of highest rates of obesity in the world, totally corrupt government. Asia is far more advanced technologically. We have better parks and in some places better air quality. Our ugly strip center and tract housing architecture leaves much to be desired. Overall, I think this place is horrible

The USA is number one for thinking that it is number one.

I understand. Unless the OP was being uber-sarcastic when he posted this!

I don't believe the USA is number one in everything we are number one in some categories but not all, this is the mindset why most of the world hates Americans but I love the USA with all my heart, my grandparents both served in WW2 for the US Army and my father was an army physician during the Gulf War and for 22 years. I still bleed red, white and blue but we have a ton of social and economic issues in America I don't believe we are the country with the best quality of life anymore, despite this I love the USA too much to move anywhere else.

Then you should consider leaving.

I agree that we are not the best in every category by far, but for those that hate it - just leave. It's very easy.

To be fair, the crime rate is higher in Australia in some categories such as rape, burglary and general violent crime. Plus you can get good climate, diversity and low population in many US cities.
