Reasons Why the United States is Better Than Canada

The Top Ten
1 Friendlier People

You can obviously see on YouTube otherwise. People only care about themselves. Republicans use the Bible as an excuse to be rude and unfair towards others. People hate Muslims although there are way more Christians terrorizing the middle east than there are Muslims terrorizing anywhere else. Black Lives Matter exists, which is a violent, racist group. Men talking lowly about women then getting angry at the amount of lesbians that exist. Only males being able to be the President, whereas other 1st world countries have stopped that being a tradition. Being a Democrat is seen as being dumb simply because Democrats care about others and are not just for themselves constantly. I wouldn't say that a country with such people existing has 'friendly people'.

Having lived in Canada all my life, yet having an American mother, and growing up with her American family, (in Canada), and spending summers in the States, I guess I've gotten to see a bit of both worlds. At the end of the day, I'd say Canadians appear nice, but they're just polite, (in the big cities), they also tend to be passive-aggressive, and cold. Americans may say things that offend people, but they're more upfront about who they are, and on average, I find them to be warmer than Canadians. Of course, people are complicated, and we're talking about two large groups of individuals, exceptions abound. Canadian politics are a pathetic joke, right now a failed part time drama teacher is bankrupting our country by shutting down the energy industry, because he believes lies about climate change, which are not backed up by the magnitude of mean global temperature change over the past century. In eastern Canada, many people believe the state funded, and government bribed media, and ...more

I'm speaking on a few categories. Firstly America isn't filled with obese people. Many people down here are fit and in well shape. Yes, there is obesity too but don't say everyone in America is obese, that's a stereotype.
Secondly I've heard Americans and Canadians speak and we all speak the same. I've heard Canadians use different words than Americans but accent wise, we all speak the same.
Thirdly there are many beautiful women everywhere, all women are beautiful. Think about the personality not the appearance.
and lastly, there are friendly people in every country and there are rude people in every country. Trust me when I say not everyone in America is friendly. Even the children can be harsh and rude. Many kids have committed suicide because of the negativity down here. But I feel there is more positivity than negativity here as well. For everyone (in Canada I'm assuming) and in any other place hating on America based off stereotypes, please by all means visit down here ...more

The biggest stereotype us Canadians have is that were super nice all the time. NOT TRUE! Lived in Canada all my life and I can tell you, compared to the United States we are flat out stingy jerks. My neighbor literally called the police on me because I was filming my dog and he thought I was filming him. Stayed at my aunts over the Summer in North Dakota and the people there are a whole lot nicer than Canadians. Once I turn 18 I'm moving straight to the United States as soon as possible.

2 Justin Bieber Didn't Come From the US

Who cares.
Liam Payne could've been 3rd on The X factor in 2008 if Simon Cowell hadn't put Eoghan Quigg through. Simon was like sorry Liam you have school. Well why let 14-15 year olds audition then?

The Canadians don't even want to deal with Bieber. The Canadians can kick Justin Bieber out of Canada and he can drown in the ocean.

JB may be from Canada, but, even the Canadians don't want to deal with him.

This is such a stupid reason.

3 Prettier Cities

I definitely agree, the cities in the USA have more old charm, and vary depending on where you go, I especially love the old colonial architecture which is present throughout America. Canada hasn't really got much old charm as it's landscape restricted the construction of old towns. In Canada houses don't need to look nice they just need to withstand the temperature. In the USA everything's design better and taller.

Agreed. If you look at the show Trailor Park Boys, it's a show about guys from Canada who swear, smoke weed and cigarettes.

LOL WHAT Canada has cities of the same population as the US: Toronto and Chicago are similar in population, Toronto has a lot less crime and pollution, Montreal and Philadelphia are similar in population, which has less crime and pollution? that's right, Montreal

Pollution and expansion is pretty how?

4 Better Weather

I'm sorry, but I can't handle winter! It sucks so bad in Canada that in Nova Scotia your house will get purely buried by a turd of snow! And in the prairies since there a not a lot of trees, the wind blows you right across the face as snow gives you billions of frost bites. The only non snowy place in Canada is our south west coast in Vancouver and Victoria. But still it rains lots there, and it does not really get warm in the summer. I get that in Death Valley, California it's so hot that you cook alive, but like in maui it is perfect weather.

Sadly, many Americans don't believe in Global Warming, despite there being huge amounts of evidence. If only normal people without Asperger's Syndrome can borrow an Aspie's huge-memory brain. The evidence would be there, in the memory. I remember when there was lots of snow in the UK, but now there's no signs of there ever going to be any snow ever again. That was since 2 years ago. So, while Americans have a variety of climates, they really don't care about the climates of the Earth.

America does have a variety of climates, but Canada isn't only cold. The temperature during the summer can go up to 40 degrees (occasionally). Still, having a better climate makes America better than Canada.

Ok this I have to agree with, but actually we have very hot summers and we are starting to have green winters (winters were there is no snow and just grass).

5 More World Top-Ranked Universities

Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown, UPenn- I could honestly go on and on.

We also only have about a tenth of your population, so there should be ten times more top universities than Canada.
Also,the prices in the U.S. are WAAAYY higher

That's literally the only reason that I agree on.

6 More Clubs
7 America has Donald Trump

Yeah! Lets go Trump! I honestly hope he wins the 2020 election. He is the best person to get us out of the possible depression that this pandemic will cause.

For all of you that likes Donald trump, jump into a pile of dog poo. He is trying to bomb Australia, my country, I want to move to Japan before this happens

We're happy we don't have Oompa Loompa president in our country, but, unfortunately, we have to deal with the whiny, girly, snotty nosed kid (you know who I'm talking about).

God bless him and God bless the United States of America.
Keep America Great!

8 Lower Cost of Living

Actually, it's right. The taxes are much higher in Canada than they are in America.

Its not just the free health care, we have have a lower value dollar.

Another name for Canada is! The Snow Commies

9 USA is Free

Canada isn't free compared to the states at all. Canada has super strict gun laws, Trudeau passed a bill that effectively destroyed free speech, Ontario has so many rules and laws its insane (like no Right hand drive cars? ) the list goes on. America is actually free, and I'm Canadian. Canada is a joke these days..

USA is an independent country, american does not need to bow down to a monarchy, they can put, and they can take their leader whenever they want.

Except for the medical health care. Make it for free or don't call yourself a free country at all.

The people that think the U.S.A is better have their heads in the sand.

10 Prettier Women

Amaimon's comment has to be one of the most ignorant and immature comments I've ever seen on this website. And that's saying a lot.

Your comment has to be one of the most ignorant and rude things I've ever seen on this website. Calling someone an "a**", "retarded", and a "lowlifed freak" is just beyond vile. Civility - learn it.

Love them all.

Go to any socal coastline, and try and say, USA doesn't have the most beautiful women per capita in the world

The Contenders
11 Better Music Artists

That's right. Because all the up and coming stars leave small town Canada to move to Hollywood where they dominate the music and film industry. Seriously? The US has ten times the population so should have ten times the stars. Our singers are influential just like yours. Celine? Bryan Adams? Alanis morrisette? Leonard Cohen (the guy who wrote hallelujah)?

I think america has better music than Canada because the American singer have more talent then allot of Canadian singers. also I think American songs and singers are more original and their music is more popular and appeals more to me.

Actually, many music artists in the US were born in Canada. Making them Canadian. For example, Shawn Mendes, Drake and Justin Bieber were all born in Canada and are still amazing Music artists.

How does this affect the general population? This would only affect celebrity stalkers.

12 More Powerful Military

Just because you have the "best snipers" doesn't make the Canadian military better. America has over 1,000,000 active service members while Canada has a quite pathetic 70,000 active members. America also has companies like Lockheed Martin, Northprop Grumman, and Boeing that build the most advanced military technology in the world. America also has the 2nd highest amount of nuclear weapons. And to be fair I have never seen a single piece of media about the Canadian military, like seriously what are yall doing up there.

Our records show that our military is badass!

13 Not Dependent on UK
14 More McDonald's
15 More Sexy Woman

America has a better naked girls than canada.

The most beautiful women inside and out.

16 More Money

Canadians are mostly broke and in huge credit card debt. Visit vancouver and you'll see what I mean.

17 No Justin Trudeau

Canada's corrupt incompetent Trudeau is pathetic but I guess the US has corrupt lying Biden.

18 More Happiness
19 Isn't Politically Correct

Well actually your wrong...not Americans, illegals mostly...that's what Trump is going go fix.

20 More Sex and Entertainment

As a Filipino from the Philippines, if more sex in the U.S., Canada is still better

21 More Conservatives
22 More Oil

America buys more oil from Canada than it has itself, and they don't even buy all of Canada's oil. The only good argument on this entire list is better weather.

Maybe they buy oil from Canada because their so desperate for money

23 Better Leader

Neither is good... Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau! Are you kidding?

24 More Interesting Cities and Culture

Well regardless of your opinion about possible lack of culture in USA. When people want to visit a country and do tourism they decide to come to USA over Canada. In fact USA occupy second country in the world in foreign visitors, outperform by only France. Even more facts for you, annually Mexico is more visited by tourists than canada. So please... Don't even try to think that canada can outperform USA in culture. Just facts.

A culture of McDonalds. Very interesting.
