Makes not a lick of sense.

Why don't more US citizens immigrate to other countries? Sounds like they rather make their country more like these other countries that they do not want to move to.
MANY non-greatest countries can't afford it, we can.

You missed the biggest aspect lol

Also there are countries with universal healthcare The Netherlands, Ireland, Sweden, ukraine etc

Even canada has a better healthcare system than us.

Ya really think coming into this country illegally isn't a huge risk? The illegals that can afford a plane ticket and stay in this country do it all the time but a large portion of this country thinks a large border wall will stop illegal immigration. The ones that are poor are risking their lives to get here, I.E. stranding themselves at sea, getting in business with the cartel.

It's just sad how our government can spend trillions of dollars on military that mostly lines the pockets of weapon manufactures but turn their noses up to universal healthcare.

If people didn't take the risk then there would be no G-Dale on CD.

So then correct your past post. The greatest countries in the World according to you are the Netherlands, Ireland, Sweden, Ukraine, and Canada. And then maybe, just maybe, the US.

I'd eliminate the last sentence entirely and probably Ireland, and then definitely put in Austria, France, Norway, Denmark, Germany, and New Zealand.

"Greatest country in the world" is tedious. Has any country NOT tried to bill itself that way.
This is generally called PROPAGANDA.
