There are no equivalents to USA, whether they're livable or not.

Singapore isnít one of them. Not even close.
Sorry, I was using the Americanized definition of "Asian" as in someone from the Asian race, not as Israel, Aughanistan, India (the way British people use "Asian").

And to be fair, even Europe may pass as Asia because there's no separation between both self-made continents. Just like India isn't separate continent.

Absolutely nonsense.

My European perspective is that Canada tend to have the minuses of Europe without the pluses of the US.

There's a lot of francophones in the province of Quebec, it's true. But they aren't Europeans, they are Canadians who speak French, which is why they're called French Canadians. Canada's French language isn't spoken exactly the same as France's French language and French Canadian people are not more like people from France or other countries in Europe. They are like all other Canadians.

Last year the law enforcement in the US killed 1163 people. That's only 200 less than ALL murders in the UK, Italy and Spain combined.

Sorry man, not in your league.

I don't believe there is any such thing as a whole "European perspective" and I'd like to see somebody try to define what a European perspective is. What is there that distinguishes it as a "perspective" and sets it apart from each separate country that forms a part of Europe or from all other continental or sub-continental perspectives?
