The sizes are different and the different kinds of cities in the states are all very different as well. This is why America is so diverse.

      @Lacoyya Buddy how can you talk about how great freedom of speech is in the US and forbit others to criticize America? Isn't it a Freedom of speech to point out things you dont agree with even though it may hurt American patriotism?

      I'm an American (born and raised). I don't hate American; in fact I appreciate the many luxuries it affords those who live here. At the same time, I cringe to hear people laud this country as a pillar of morality and justice. This country is neither of those things. The U.S. and its citizens engages in just as many base, despicable practices as any other country (greed, impurity, rage, murder, etc). Sure, this country affords lifestyles that many other countries could only dream of, and gives us freedoms that the world envies, but in the end we are just as ungodly (possibly more so) than any other nation and our wealth and profligate lifestyles blind us to our need for a spiritual awakening. God has certainly blessed the United States, but we are a sinful nation that needs to repent of its evil ways. Instead of loving money, success, power and freedom from tyrannical governments, we should desire Jesus Christ, righteousness (as defined biblically), heavenly treasure and the full authority of the God of Bible.

      Perhaps humanly speaking, America is the greatest country in the world because it satisfies all of my fleshly desires, but we are not a godly nation, and because of that, I disagree that America is the greatest nation. Also, has anyone noticed that no matter how many times answer "no" to that above poll, it never changes. I think that thing is rigged.

      Your just jealous Simon, check your facts before you make false assumptions. First off i'm an American living in B.C. as well & I cross the damn border into the U.S. four times a week & there's usually 2+ hours in wait times your people face just to cross into my great country! & a 5 minute wait time entering back into Canada. I'm sure you've been in line up to enter the U.S. more than just a few occassions yourself. If you hate America or want to say dumb things you & your people can stay out of it & stop bottom feeding off my country & it's trillions of dollars in debt. Next off you might want to re-check your facts the Americans didn't loose the war in Korea it was a truce technically the war never ended. As for Viet Nam the Americans were only off a few miles from attack on North Vietnam when they were told Nixon told the American people that the military would not extend into Cambodia more than 20 miles. Lastly as for the Cival War true it was American Vs American clearly the right side the North won that War which abolished slavery. Next time learn your facts before you end up looking like an ass. Clearly most Canadians aren't well informed in American History. When it boils down to it America is still on top off many lists against other countries even $15 Trillions in debt. As much as I like Canada you still wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight. Lastly last time I checked our dollars were at par so tack your 12% tax on top of that & shove it!!

      America is not great! Many are racist, the country has a $15000000000000 (15 trillion) debt to pay, they brag about their military even though the lost Korea, Vietnam, the civil war in a way, and you don't even have enough money to start another one. When clinton was president, the US government had over $17 billion in surplus, then bush comes and adds $1.5 trillion of debt in his first year, and by 2008 the country had about $9 trillion of debt, then Obama comes during a recession and is forced to clean up bush's mess and adds a few trillion and every one blames the black guy for the country's poor state. Also how do many people go into debt? I live in Canada where the wages are low and the house prices are ridiculous, $800,000 for a house you can get in the US for $100000, I live in Vancouver which is where the most expensive housing district in Canada is, also the province which is BC, is the most underpaid, in Alberta, another province, the pay for a job like a doctor is $60 an hour, in Vancouver it's $45 an hour. In the US you get paid more, everything is dirt cheap, yet people go into debt although in Canada, mortgage rates are high, and your bank accounts interest rate is 0.02% and in the US it is better. WHY DO YOU GO INTO DEBT???
