Where did I hear that before; if you do not like it here; then leave. So in other words you do not accept criticism about your own country to help improve things here. Sure other countries may have also their own peculiarities, but may have in the area discussed better laws or rules. I lived all over the world; every country is different, but none have the "second amendment" like here; which in my eyes is nuts; it is only a piece of paper written in 1776 which should not apply today. Certain things are great here other things horribly backwards. But every country has its pro's and con's. I also used to live in Canada (Edmonton) sure there were good things, I hated the cold but the social system worked fine. I had an RCMP
friend learned to shoot from him; but that was all. so I know about weapons also got shot at a few times on my travels,but never had the urge to buy a gun even today. Getting back on where is the best place to live; I guess it does not make much difference; I loved France, had a house there, loved their food etc. easy going lifestyle, but high taxes on everything, so you got to choose what your preferences are.
In the Netherlands, I must say the population is more " direct" in their communication they do not beat around the bush with millions of words like they do here; the food is more "inspected" and fresh, more social plans, everything is controlled in such way that in an overcrowded country there is little crime, tragic happenings like when they had the "flood": they immediately act on it and built the worlds best protection for it. etc. The roads, bridges are perfect, no slums in any city; police carries firearms not the public. But again the taxes are high, the weather is terrible; cold and wet. And of course 18 million people on a postage stamp. I hope therefore you guys realize nowhere on this globe is "heaven" neither in the good old US!!!
