"I admire the Americans for their absoluteness in their belief that they are indeed number one" Personally I find these qualities disgusting, and in their more extreme forms are one reason why there's so many problems in the world. People thinking they're better and superior to others etc. Pathetic. Whether it's Americans, Brits or any other nationality doing it, it's a characteristic I certainly don't respect or admire. I myself as a Brit have been guilty of this myself though I'd like to think I'm not too bad. I cringe when I look back at some of my comments on B+W and things I've done in everyday life, but others will be the judge of whether I'm proud or humble. I envy those who are selfless, humble and egoless.

'Which country is most envied'

What criteria are you using?

Is it the country that has the best use of the English language and its grammar?

Or is it the country people yearn to go to to escape people who are awash in their arrogance?


your choice
please dont twist the question its fairly strait forward

I envy the slower pace of Ireland, and some of the Islands in the West Indies for the same reason.

I admire Cuba for its steadfast resistance against a powerful enemy.

I admire the Poles, as they are possibly the nicest people I have ever met and definately the most welcoming.

I admire the Americans for their absoluteness in their belief that they are indeed number one.

There are many other nations I admire for one reason or another, but none of them I admire for their ability to make war.

thats the kind of responce ive come to exspect from you
You mean a reasoned and thought out one, or did you expect me to answer in the manner you think is correct?

You seem to have a bee in your bonnet against anyone who disagrees with you, is that how it works?

For someone who purports to be proud of their country, you seem quite willing to silence any dissenting voices.

Is this country you live in a police state?


You know what I find to be funny? The vast majority of Americans don't even give a crap about this idea that "We are #1" etc etc. In fact I'd say it's other countries that seem to obsess about it more so than Americans do, by far.

Americans are constantly accused of being arrogant for a variety of reasons. "Most of you don't know a second language". Most of us don't need to, unlike Europe, we have some 4000 miles of land across where everyone speaks one language, and about 2000 miles top to bottom from Canadian to Mexican border. If an American wants to travel he can see so much within his/her own country that there may not be a need to leave our own shores, and there is nothing wrong or egotistical and self centered about it.

In Europe however, you travel 50 miles sometimes and you can find three and four different languages being native to the different regions in the area.

I know I'm not really answering the ballot, but that's my take on this supposed 'arrogance' that American's have, which I don't see.

USA

see ballot 96963

The ballot indicates there are 100,000,000 more Americans today than 40 years ago, primaraly due to immigration.

Those numbers ae astronomically higher than any other country and answers this ballot question perfectly.

Well Jappy, you obviously haven't been at any sporting event in which the US is involved.

I don't want to get bogged down in that argument, I just believe many countries have many good attributes that others may envy.

Many Americans seem to be settling in England oddly enough, I'm not sure it is because they envy our lifestyle, but the ones I have spoken to, say they prefer a society that isn't in awe of the gun.
