Top Ten Reasons the United States is Better Than the U.K.


The Top Ten

1 Better Teeth

I thought this list would have some legitimate reasons to support your argument but as there aren't any I can only surmise you can't actually find any. Okay, I'll let you have that they gave the world Rock n Roll and Country and I'll even throw in the Blues too for good measure (they deserve that accolade) But the Grand Canyon? it's hardly the fault of the UK that she doesn't have it is it? Come on, find some legitimate reasons and I might even accept and support them. - Britgirl

I have absolutely nothing against the US or its people. I agree with you; the US does deserve some credit for being a great country. - Britgirl

I'm not even British but this list is stupid. It doesn't even valid reasons. I prefer the US since I live in the US but this is still a very dumb list. - PeeledBanana

And now we have here a list that encompasses everything that makes a bad list pertaining to America. Aside from all the political bias from the right wing (and let's just leave my political views at that...), almost all the reasons here are pretty shallow and invalid. The list even borders around the territory of generalization and stereotypes. Look, as an American, I have my pride as a U.S. citizen and my pride for our proud E Pluribus Unum, but two things that really went wrong here is the shoddy choice of items and sheer bias. Besides, EVERY country has their own pride and reasons to be proud of their respective nation's history, culture, and whatnot. Again, I have my pride as an American, but this list just fails to carry my nation's pride in an intelligent and mature way... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

How's come this this list is offensive, and yet the list "why Britain is better than the United States" is OK. Hippocrates! You are just jealous because I thought of it first - westofohio

2 More Beautiful Scenery

More natural? After 10,000 years of agriculture and livestock? There is almost zero "natural" land area left. Lots of the US is built up of course, but far less by percentage of total land area than the UK, and massive areas of land are untouched by humankind. California alone is 1/3 larger than the entire UK, and Alaska is almost 10 times bigger, with only 750,000 people in it.

Nah, I prefer the UK scenery. It's much more natural and beautiful. - Swellow

3 Better Flag

Uk has the best country falg all hail to uk.

4 Is the Only Country to Defeat the British Empire in War

Fascinating. I love watching two visitors debate about history. - Swellow

And so July 4, anti Britain day was born. - IronSabbathPriest

I never knew that! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

"Now doubt the Brits were the fiercest fighters." Now, I take a back seat to no one in respect and admiration for both the British military and the British people for their valor, tenacity, and just plain grit during WWII. But tell your version of history to the Americans that landed on Omaha Beach, or to the Battered Bastards of Bastogne, or the Marines at Tarawa, Iwo or Guadalcanal. There was plenty of "fierce" to go around.

5 More of a Melting Pot

What the hell is a melting pot? - Swellow

Guess you haven't noticed that for the past thirty years we've had wave after wave of immigrants, legal and illegal, who've shown no intention of assimilating, of mixing in the mythical "melting pot." In fact, many are demanding the U.S. change to become more like the countries from which they emigrated.

6 USA has illegal Immigrants

We will gladly send you some then.

I feel like I have to apologize for being American after reading this list. - Zach808

The USA is better than the UK because the USA "has illegal immigrants" Wow...I am consumed, eaten up by jealousy. - Britgirl

A few months later and I am still laughing. - Swellow

7 Funnier TV Shows

Family Guy, The Simpsons, The Ranch, That 70's Show, Modern Family and a lot more - westofohio

What, slapstick? That's the most forced type of humour ever. - IronSabbathPriest

Nah. The UK has way funnier media in my opinion. - Redrocm

8 Invented Rock and Roll, Rap and Country Music

Actually, the Brits "exported" very little rock 'n' roll. You're referring to "rock." They are NOT the same thing.

9 First to Have Freedom

No we did. Actually... New Zealand was first of all of the countries to make women vote

The uk abolished slavery first while usa had a whole war on it but cool

Y'all cons were sent to United States to pile up. Land of the criminals.

Britain didn't abolish slavery in its colonies until 1838 [US was originally a colony after all], and not in the British Raj of India until 1860, so not really a huge difference between that and 1863 for the US, given how slowly word traveled in those days. The Netherlands was also in 1863, and Spain didn't come around until 1870.

10 No Accent

No accent? First of all there are many American accents. And secondly British accents are nicer than American accents in every way. - Noah_G161

You do realize that there is such a thing as an "American accent" right? - phillysports

The US is better than the UK because there is "no accent". Dear oh dear oh dear... - Britgirl

American accents are overrated. - DarkMatter1997
