US citzens have the right to vote. I dislike when people complain about the actions of our government; but, they do not vote.

Generally I think the United States is a great place, but I hate the fact that Bush is our president. I will never forgive him for getting us into the Iraq war, which as far as I'm concerned has no military solution. This is just one of the things I dislike about Bush.

I am still very intrigued about that country of yours, ha! But I like my country too, the U.S.... i think the world media is giving us a bad reputation that we do not deserve. Anyway the world is getting so small, we can chat everywhere in just a few seconds! i have learned so many thing just about the PI from online. I think it is too expensive here, especially for land and rent - it is not really a crowded country to have so much rent. but building a place to live has too many regulations for no reasons. bye!

well of course the number ONE reason that it is so intrigueing is because you live there!..(hehe!) and if you remember i asked that question about philippines on my discussion, and so many nice people were very generous with their answers. It seems like a hot, humid weather where you can just sweat... i love that! and strange food too as some people mentioned and seafood. and also for me, it is place between east and west, people speak natural English, and as I am catholic, many islands, many island girls ha! and I met nice folks from your country here also. When i get next summer off, i will be there to visit your nice country!

i really hate our government, they are quick to hand out money to other countrys, but forget about their own people, cut out particular industrys because a group happens to dislike it, with out compensation to the workers that were in it, then there is the taxs on top if taxs, the medical system sucks, you can wait for up to 6 years for a simple operation, don't get cancer here ( australia ), you will probably die before you can get full treatment, but on the good side, we have the best reefs, rain forrest, and heaps of places to go and things to do, so not is all bad, we just have to get rid of the terrorist in parliment

funny that everyone refers to a governmnet they dont like as "terrorists" when it certainly distorts that word. There are real terrorists out there, and using it in that way deminishes the true meaning of evil, violent, intolerant, torturous, kidnapping, religious and finatical terrorists that target and kill innocent people, even in their own country. you have a vote in your country. Pretending there are no real terrorists does not make them go away.

USA!!! I love the freedom we are given in the old USA. I love the fact that many other cultures sort of envy all the rights were are privilaged as USA citizens. The only thing I hate abut our country is the filth that's in every major city. Thanks for this topic. Can't wait to hear from some oversea countries. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!
