Why would I love another country more than mine? To me, it's like loving your neighbor's kid more than yours, just because he/she is smarter or prettier.
Well, maybe that was a poor comparison... But, although all its problems, your country will always be a part of who you are. Loving your country, your roots, is part of self-love.
Also, everywhere has its pros and cons. Anyone who's looking for a heaven on earth surely have slept through geography classes.
Anyway, I live quite well in my country, lots of people live quite well here. We're having now a big immigrational wave to here, many people from all continents are leaving their countries lo live here. There are many joys of living here.
There some are problems, of course, but they aren't our exclusivity! Also, there is a lot of people here fighting to erradicate them. And we're having some victories. We have much more than just hope.
We're on the World's spotlight.
I want to travel and study all over the world, but my heart will be always in Brazil.
My discourse may sound cheesy and cheap to some of you, but I just don't give a damn.
The US is too conservative for my taste, mostly due to the influence of the former Confederate states. (We maybe should have let them go when we had the chance.) If I didn't live in a very liberal part of the country, I probably would have decamped for Canada years ago.
I really admire SOME of the cultural aspects of many other countries. However, as a US citizen who has never lived outside of the States [yet] I have to say "no." Sure, other places look nice through brochures and television, but I won't know if I favor another country or not until I've actually lived there for some time.
i don't think i prefer one country over another, i love the diversity of cultures and the mythology and regions of diffident places. because although diffident they are also very smiler in there messages, it make me feel glad to be human.
I'm Danish and I really do prefer my country over other places I've been (not many). I think that our politicians are relatively sane, and we have a nice healthcare system. I love Norway and Norwegian but I don't think I could live in the cold. I love being on vacation in Turkey and Italy, but I couldn't live there either. So, no matter how much I complain about cold, wet, miserable little Denmark, it will always be my home.
yhea i love canada we went skiing at like 3 different resorts every winter and in the winter months we could literally grab our ice skates and go skating if the rink was free without having to pay miss it so much
I do love other countries, such as Norway, England & Finland but I do love my own country too much to betray it Well, it isn't the best and there are plenty of things to complain about but still I'm proud of my nationality, no matter what
The more I see, know and listen of my country the more I hate it. And the same of Germany, the more I want to leave this Crapland I'm living in to go and live there!
I'm planning to go there on a short travel, so I can breath some REAL air before I get to much sick of this place.
I'm dying to find live there in the future. People polite and correct (not like the noisy pleople that freak me out in the cinema, the streets with the music louder on the phones, clucking like hen's), having some respect for their own country... Everything!!!
I put down yes but honestly I'm rather apathetic. There are countries that I admire but seeing as I have never been outside my own country and never lived in another country, I don't actually know what they are like. On the flip side the only place I really know is my own country, it feels jaded to me. Also, my country has a bad reputation in general.
Yes. I live in America. It's not like it's terrible here- but the people are just downright mean. And because of stereotypes, it's not like I'm going to fit in other places, because Americans are pretty oblivious to the rest of the world.
I'm going to go with yes. I love my hometown, which is Amsterdam, but the rest of my country is a bit dull. England and Ireland I like better overall, but even though I might want to move to Dublin or London for a couple of years, I suppose I still want to end up in Amsterdam. I think. Too early to tell, perhaps.
